I love to have fresh flowers in the house so when Jo from Beards & Daisies contacted me for the opportunity to review a beautiful delivery of their blooms I was delighted to. Beards & Daisies have a very unique twist to the usual floral delivery, in that their boxes are all letterbox friendly, which is a brilliant idea if you or the person you are sending the flowers to will be out at the time of delivery.
Wrapped carefully and ready to put into water when you receive the bouquet, you won’t be disappointed by the arrangement as they look beautiful. I would like to say a special thank you to the lovely folk at Beards & Daisies for this wonderful delivery and also for helping me to share it with my readers with this great giveaway to win a 3 month subscription so you can try it out for yourself. All you need to do is enter via the Gleam app at the end of this post for multiple entries – Good luck!
Beards & Daisies Review
You can order from the selection online (we had The Dove blooms sent to us) from £22.99 to £26.00 and if you order before 4pm they will deliver the next day if you prefer. When I received the delivery I was so surprised that such a large bunch of flowers could be so small and slim, all packed away very neatly and every care had gone to ensure each bloom was protected from the journey.
I love the fact that these are genuinely ‘Flowers By Post’ and the box really will post through the letterbox, don’t worry about the bouquet getting dehydrated or ruined as the folk at Beards & Daisies only select blooms that are less dependant on water and also each one is carefully cut across the stem which seals in the water which they have been placed in until they arrive to you. All you need to remember is to cut the stems of each bloom at a 45 degree angle and place them into water.
I loved the little touches included within the delivery, a card with all the instructions on how to care for your flowers and if you turn it over you will see the images and names of all the flowers included in the bouquet, a sachet of crystals to help keep your bouquet fresh for longer and all wrapped carefully in brown wrapping and finished with a pretty black ribbon.
It still baffles me how they can fit in so much in such a diminutive box, and once I began unwrapping the package I discovered that each flower, which could be damaged in transit, is carefully wrapped in green mesh which you can easily remove with no damage to the flowers themselves. I cut each flower as instructed in the leaflet enclosed and added the crystals to the water, next my youngest daughter and I arranged the bouquet in the water and I loved the results. The Dove arrangement is a beautiful one and as the days have gone on all the buds have opened to produce a lovely bouquet, I feel my photos just don’t do it justice!
You will get the choice of the selection in the photo montage at the end of this post when you win, and once you have chosen you can rest assured the bouquet will be with you the next day, although not on a Sunday as Beards & Daisies use Royal Mail to deliver their boxes. You will have the choice of three bouquets if you win over three months which I’m sure you will love as they are beautiful flowers and last so well too.
