Post in association with Serenata Flowers
Next to my bed, on one of my bedside tables, I have a white, ceramic jug. Whenever I remember, I buy myself fresh flowers for it. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy as it’s not a huge jug – just a little bunch of freesias maybe for the smell, and a couple of sprays of gypsophila.
I can show you in fact, with a photo that is DEFINITELY NOT an excuse just to post a cat picture.
(It definitely WAS that.)
There’s something lovely about fresh flowers isn’t there? Partly for me it’s the idea of bringing a little bit of the outdoors inside, especially in the winter when the garden is lacking colour, but partly it’s what they represent – spending just a few pounds on something that’s just for me, something that feels indulgent.
Getting sent a proper big bouquet of flowers in the post is this same feeling, multiplied by about four, because someone else has gone to the effort to think of you, and what flowers you might like, and then spend money on having them sent right to your door. It might feel like a bit of a cliche, but I don’t think that being sent flowers will ever get old.
Last week I was sent a bouquet from Serenata Flowers.
Here it is:
It goes rather nicely with my curtains doesn’t it? (These curtains have been one of my most extravagant house purchases so far, but my living room window is so big, it really needs good curtains.)
I chose the ‘Bella’ bouquet from their Valentine’s Day flowers range. I love the mix of pale pinks and whites, shot through with dots of dark purple and dark green foliage.
The round leaves with the beautiful pink tinge around the edge are eucalyptus, which is one of my favourites.
One of the things I really like about Serenata Flowers is the variety of their bouquets. Some flower delivery companies I’ve found have almost a ‘house style’, so lots of the arrangements are similar tones or shapes. With Serenata Flowers though there is a really choice of colour schemes, arrangements and budgets, so you’re going to find something for whoever you’re buying for.
What’s also great about Serenata Flowers is that you they do free delivery, seven days a week – no hidden extra costs at weekends or anything like that. You can leave it as late 10pm to order for their next day delivery, which is perfect if, like me, you tend to forget about special occasions until it feels like it’s almost too late.
