I love flowers. They're guaranteed to make me smile and if you follow me on Instagram or Pinterest you will probably have noticed a fair amount of floral based posts on a regular basis. You just can't beat a close up of a beautiful flower in bloom and now that spring has certainly sprung, there is bloomin' inspiration just about everywhere!
When I was recently approached by London based florist, Appleyard London who asked if I would like to pick a bouquet from their spring range to see what I thought of their beautiful looking floral designs and service, the flower lover in me instantly felt this would be something I would love to do. Plus the former Personal Assistant in me was also intrigued!
Having at many times over the years, been the person responsible for seeking out flowers for my work colleagues, be that for birthdays, births or whatever the occasion might be, I was always keen to find something a little prettier and more special in feeling than the usual. As well as wanting to ensure smooth service and delivery to the relevant recipient.
What's lovely about Appleyard is that they collate their designs together in seasonal collections. So you can pick out a bouquet of the most seasonal and fresh flowers for the right time of year and your chosen occasion.
My choice was the very vibrant, Spring Garden Bouquet* from their current spring Seasonal Flower Collection. A lovely vibrant mix of tulips, scented stocs and yellow roses, it was a delight when it was delivered to my door - and, as you can see, my four legged furry colleague certainly agreed!
The flowers were a real delight. Bright, fresh and colourful. They made a great addition to my home office and cheered me up no end - helping to usher in the spring in exactly the way that I adore. They also lasted well over a week despite the growing and wilt inducing warmth in the room in which they sat. I felt that was pretty good going by any standard.
Whether you're after something bright and cheery for family, friends or colleagues, or if you just want to treat yourself to a little spring luxury, these lovely fresh flowers and boutique designs will make just the perfect gift to add cheer to someones day. Not only that but the design of the bouquet is so, that you can pretty much unpack them, pop them in a vase and be presented with a beautiful display. So if you're not a natural flower arranger like me this is really very helpful!
If you'd like to get your hands on one of these beautiful luxury bouquets to give your home or a friend a little burst of that sunny, spring feeling then get yourself down to the lovely Appleyard London boutique on 69 Leonard Street near Old Street.
