An Autumn Surprise…

I am such a lucky person! I have been sent the most amazing arrangement of flowers from www.okbouquet.com to review, and I am so happy to do so because I am genuinely thrilled with them!


Autumn Surprise (c) OK Bouquet

By the time we all got home after work & school, the courier had delivered a large box to one of our neighbours, who had kindly taken it in for me. Henry and I enthusiastically unboxed the bouquet, and we were presented with the most wonderful arrangement of autumn flowers! They have such a sensible way to package the flowers… they stand in a square plastic tray, which is filled with a wet mulch so that they didn’t dry out in transit, but it doesn’t make the cardboard box wet either! Clever!

This particular bouquet is called “Autumn Surprise” and can be found here. It costs £40 or £50 depending on which size you plump for – which I feel represents great value for money, especially when you take into account the very large size of the arrangement! It is filled with Red Roses, White Lilies, and a lot of Crocosmia foliage. It has plenty of Blue Supernova Thistles and Orange/Bronze Tom Pearce Chrysanthemums with long stems of Oak Leaf foliage too. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if people were tempted to split the arrangement into two vases! The bouquet is so big, it would be very easy to do.

I happily recommend OK Bouquet for the next time you’re considering sending flowers, whatever the circumstances. Flowers really are a splendid gift, because there is something for everyone, and for each occasion. OK Bouquet offer a next day delivery throughout the UK mainland (excluding Mondays), but including weekends – which means they even deliver on a Sunday! Something to remember for Mother’s Day!

The fresh flowers care tips that came with the flowers was also a lovely addition, giving great advice about how to care for the display and to make them last as long as possible. OK Bouquet present beautiful flowers at affordable prices, whilst offering a friendly, fast & personable service from a family-run business. You can find them on Twitter and Facebook too!

I’ll add some more pictures when the beautiful White Lilies open… I can’t wait!

About childofthe80s

I’m a Mum, first and foremost. Henry is now 8 years old. I can’t believe where the time has gone… I’ve learnt a lot along the way, and I hope some of the experiences I choose to write about may be useful to you. I write about things that are going on in my life – a lifestyle blog, if you like. I like money saving and helping people to save money here and there, I also do a lot of honest reviews, so I shall be posting some of those on here too. I love photography – Henry is my most favourite subject – but I do love taking pictures of anything really. Children’s portraits are what I think I’m best at. I enter a lot of competitions – I admit it! It’s a great hobby to have and has brought many an experience our way which we wouldn’t otherwise have been able to do. A great example to give you was when I won a spa holiday to Kuala Lumpur – we flew business class and lived a life of luxury for 10 whole days. It was bliss and something we would have NEVER have been able to have treated ourselves to otherwise… and all because I sent my name and address on a postcard to the Times newspaper. I feel that I am fairly successful at comping because I put a lot of effort in – AND I have a positive attitude. I run a little business selling costume jewellery, and I also work 4 days a week in a digital library, so – what with all that – I’m a pretty busy person! I wouldn’t change any of it, mind… I hope you’ll find my posts interesting enough to stick around, follow me, share some of my pages etc. Anna x
