Ordering flowers online can be a daunting process. Having never done it before I wanted to give it a try but I didn’t know exactly where to start, There are plenty of mail order florist at the moment and choosing your first one, much like ordering the flowers in the first place, can be a scary idea.
More so if you cannot make up your mind, like me.
Appleyard Flowers is a London based luxury flower delivery company. They offer a wide range of beautiful bouquets at various prices. They made ordering and choosing which flowers to buy easier than I expected, I wanted something simple and clean but that smelt amazing.
The bouquet that I picked is called Purity, a beautiful collection of ammi, avalanche roses, bouvardia and white antirrhinum. I can honestly say that walking into my living room with these flowers sitting on the table has made the morning a lot brighter and better scented. Along with the basic bouquets that you can buy one off, Appleyard offers a wonderful subscription service that can be posted directly through your letter box. Which frankly sounds like a delightful thing if you love getting flowers every month. All completely different and equally stunning.
Appleyard offers a free next day delivery service if you place an order before 7pm, my beautiful bouquet arrived neatly packaged in a box. The flowers themselves with their stems inside a plastic packaging along with a sachet of flower feed to place into their water.
The only major issue I had with the delivery was that it arrived very late in the day and may have been stuck on the back of the post lorry for longer than it should be so my flowers didn’t last as long as I hoped they would but I wouldn’t blame Appleyard for that and more of the delivery boy or dropped them off. But other than that slight issue they are a beautiful bunch of flowers that brightened my day when I opened up my living room and while they lasted smelt so amazing.
If you are after some flowers of your own I highly recommend you give Appleyard a go, they offer a wide range of options for different occasions as well as a ‘flowers and gifts’ service too with chocolates or champagne. I am definitely going to give the subscription service a try next year and enjoy these beautiful flowers all year around.
