Flowers? For me?!

You know, I am a sucker for getting flowers. I get all gushy and start thinking that I should have prepared a speech and then start calling everyone I know raving on about how I totally got flowers and how somebody must really love me. I think that’s a woman thing you know?

But really, I think the key to any woman’s heart is to buy her flowers that she is not allergic to. Chocolate equally says I love you enough to injest you with saturated fats, but flowers say it with far fewer calories. Plus you don’t feel as though you have to share flowers with anyone, they are yours to gaze upon and put a little sunshine in the house. It’s a win-win all round.

Right now with Summer having offically arrived, the florists are booming with some absolutely gorgeous summer bouquets to brighten up anyone’s day – or week if you buy the right ones. But if you are lazy like me, strapped for time or just plain loving the convienience of online shopping and want to send flowers online, take a peek at Interflora’s selection of summer flowers and I promise you won’t be dissapointed. I have used their service before a few times, especially since they are international and I have people back in the good ol USA to ship to and I have to admit, I found it very convienient and the quality has always been amazing. I recall ordering some for my Aunt and she got them the next day. You can’t beat that international.

I recently got their Scent of Summer vase arrangement, which I have to say was simply stunning. (Yes it’s the one in the photo for this post…isn’t it sweet?!) It smelled amazing and the vase it came with was a good quality. I figured I’d get to enjoy the flowers for perhaps 4-5 days, but hand on my heart those babies were still going strong after a week. It was shortly after the week came and went that they finally couldn’t go on any longer and started to surrender. There are STILL a few flowers in their doing their best to keep up morale attempting to stay gorgeous. Um it’s been 10 days since they arrrived. I’m kinda stunned actually and refuse to throw them out until the last one finally gives up. I’m getting sort of attatched to them now and started to name them, it’s going to be hard when they all go.

Also, if you are still scratching your head as to what to get your Dad for Father’s Day, bet you would have never considered a florist for man gifts right? Interflora have a whole section dedicated to some great Father’s Day gifts and before you go thinking your Dad would probably just give the flowers to your Mom and be all dissapointed, there’s barely a bouquet in sight there. The range of gifts go from affordable breakfast hampers, luxury hampers (if your siblings might chip in), personalized whiskey and even a bonsai tree. How can you go wrong with personalized whiskey people?  Last order dates for Father’s day stuff is 2pm on Friday, so you still have time! GO! NOW! HURRY!

A big thanks to Interflora for sending me flowers and making me feel super special. Also, If you are in the UK and needing to dig up some florists in London look no further. There is an extensive list of flower delivery with Interflora there, so you will be spoiled for choice.

Now to work on doing loads of nice stuff for Maurice to replace the bouquet in the next week for the vase….

Yes dear that was a hint. Ah hem.

    Hey! Long time no see! Glad you love flowers. Unfortunately, I associate flowers with my ex who used to send them to me at work (we worked at the same place) so that everyone would know what a thoughtful guy he was. In reality, he was a real jeark to me at home–the flowers were more for his image than for my enjoyment. So as a result, I prefer chocolates. lol

  2. What’s not to love about flowers? I don’t have a green thumb but I’ve happily accepted bunches and bouquets, even from desperate stalkers with whom I had no desire to speak 😉 I also think flowers and plants are a fab gift for men, especially as they’re usually unexpected. The hubby’s a keen garden man, and one V-day I got him a peace lily which he adored. Will check out this service x

    Find a local flower store in
    Why you should purchase flowers from a local store rather than online delivery services:
    Online delivery services are one of the most convenient ways to get flowers delivered to a destination quickly. While having flowers delivered to a destination can be really convenient you often see a dip in quality when using flower shops that simply make and deliver flowers in bulk. You can ordering and find store in local store to pick up flowers always leads to a better product and here is why:
    -Big sites like make generic bouquets: While you can make special requests it can be hard to get something unique. Flowers are a gift of beauty and something that is perfect for a variety of occasions but getting something custom and unique can really make an impact and show someone you care. With a list of local florists in working with you, it’s possible to get an arrangement that creates the biggest impression or uses flowers/colors the person loves.
    – Flowers aren’t as fresh: Getting flowers on the way home by stopping into a local shop will always lead to a better product. Working with a local flower shop that is close to the destination for the flowers can also improve the quality of an arrangement. When dealing with a larger online company in the UK flowers often have to sit in a delivery truck for hours at a time and this can often cause them to wilt as well as detract from their lifespan. This means a local florist can deliver healthier flowers that will last longer because they are kept in optimal conditions over a longer period. You can find flowers for any occasion in
    -You can support a local business: Supporting a neighbourhood flower shop helps to give back to your community and improve the local economy. By working with a local company instead of a large online ordering system you can have a speedier transaction as well as the satisfaction of knowing you are supporting a local business. With a large company the orders are often outsourced to the lowest bidder or a company that might be outside of your local area. By ordering from local businesses you know where the flowers are coming from, and where you will be spending your hard earned money.
    For the following reasons and more you should use a local flower, You can find flowers in any location in
