Bloom and Wild are hands-down my favourite letterbox flowers delivery brand. I’ve been gifted flowers from Bloom and Wild, and I’ve sent them too – they’re the perfect pick me up for someone having a bad week, or just because you’re thinking of someone.
Now more than ever, it’s important to remind people you’re thinking of them. Last week, I ordered a bouquet of Bloom and Wild flowers in ‘The Tessa’ for my nan. I’ve not been able to see her for around four weeks, and I miss popping in for a cup of tea, cuddling her poodle Bill, and putting the world to rights with her. I wrote a personalised message so she knew I was thinking of her, and promised an afternoon tea once this is all over.
The Tessa – which has just gone out of season – is a stunning bouquet full of purple hues, and the most stunning lilac roses. My aunt sent me a picture of the blooms in a vase, and said: “She loves them, but more than that, it’s the fact that you are thinking about her. She is so appreciative and tells everyone who calls her what a lovely young lady you are.”
I was so happy to have made her day, and that text message made mine.
And since there is nothing better than fresh flowers, I ordered myself a bouquet to cheer myself up.
I ordered the Florist’s Pick, which is a limited edition bunch that runs for around two weeks at a time. When you buy the Florist’s Pick, 15% of funds goes to the National Emergencies Trust, who are running a coronavirus appeal to help those most affected by the virus. It was a no-brainer.
My Florist’s Pick consisted of pink and orange roses, eucalyptus, pink carnations and some greenery. It was really blooming gorgeous.
Bloom and Wild flowers come in a letterbox-sized cardboard box packed full of blooms. The brand send them in bud, so that they are fresher for longer. It’s always a nice surprise two or three day in when the flowers bloom fully and you can get the full effect.
You can get all of the details on how to arrange your blooms in my IGTV video below. It includes tips on cutting stems and putting your bouquet together.
My surprise bouquet, though, was from Jake! I had no idea he had ordered me flowers until they arrived last Saturday. They really did brighten my day!
Jake ordered me The Ruthie. It’s a combo of pink roses, as well as a stunning deep pink ombre style rose, carnations and more greenery. It was quite similar to my Florist’s Pick, so I decided to make an XL bouquet from them. The roses and carnations looked fabulous together in my pink Oliver Bonas gluggle jug – proudly made in Stoke-on-Trent.
