I am quite partial to flowers, I think many of us are. There are so many stunning species of flowers that really do bring with them a certain type of look and feel when you place them in your home. Once in a while I like to splash out and buy a stunning bouquet and other times I might not spend quite so much but will get something that is equally as pretty and will add a splash of colour into my home. As you have seen from some of my previous posts I like to try and make my home look pretty whether it’s with a lovely ornament that can be placed on either the fireplace mantle or in the middle of the dining room table as a centre piece. Either way they attract the eye and create a wonderful conversation piece and add their own style of natural beauty to a room.
Recently I decided that I had to have these stunners from Prestige Flowers.
The bouquet is called Da Vinci and is inspired by one of the artists greatest works Virgin of the Rocks. Included in the bouquet are some exquisite Vanda Orchids, gorgeous Memory Lane Roses, Calla Liles and more. The colours are splendid and I loved the addition of the gold wire which really does add to the arrangements beauty. This lasted the 7 days as stared on the site and really does
I was instantly drawn to them the second I looked through the site and although they were a little more expensive than some of the others I thought I’m worth!
I do love this particular site as they have such a large choice of flowers and gifts that they can be combined and I have found that they make great gifts. I have a few 40th birthdays coming up so I am considering a flower purchase for one of them. Now for those that don’t know me, I am indecisive. I’m not just talking about a little I am a nightmare. Don’t take me with you to a restaurant unless I know where I am going so I can pre prepare as I take forever to decide what I want to eat as I generally want to try everything yet my stomach always seems to fail me there – opsy.
Anyway I digress. I am considering flowers for one of my friends but need YOUR help. I have been on the site for ages and have managed to knock it down to this lovely selection, the question is which do you think she might like the most?
Lucky for me many are on offer at the moment which means I could spend a bit extra and buy a larger arrangement or alternatively also buy a small, pretty piece of jewellery as part of the gift although I still need to research that. Be warned I may need assistance there too! There’s no point asking hubby’s advice he isn’t the best at these things (now most things to do with property / building then he’s your man).
The options are:
100 Roses (1) looks stunning and comes with a teeny box of chocolates too. Other options such as a vase, teddy and balloons are available. I need to check and see if she has a vase and if not include one of those. The flowers are scented so this would really bring the beauty and scent of the Summer into her home and just imagine 100 roses, that must be a truly amazing sight.
I love the contrast in colour of the Heather (2) bouquet which is inspired by the colours and tones of a moorland landscape. For each purchase of this bouquet 25% of the total order value will be donated to the Children’s Charity Barnardo’s. So not only would buying this give her a lovely gift it would also help others.
The bright colours of the Woodbine (3) bouquet would really brighten up her home and add a lovely fragrance from the sweet scented lilies. Purchase of this arrangement too will result in 25% of the total order value being donated to the Children’s Charity Barnardo’s.
The Summer Peonies (4) caught my attention first of all as it was at the top of the list of arrangements and I love these having seen a bunch at a friends house. They really are stunning flowers and look great with their different shades of pink. Super feminine and also available in a large size which of course with these is a must. My only concern is is my personal preference influencing me here. This includes free chocolates.
The Van Gogh Bouquet (5) is such a wonderful bright bouquet and I love the addition of the birch. These luxury flowers are inspired by the masterpieces housed at The National Gallery. I know she does love sunflowers having seen her buy them in the past and am edging towards this one at the moment although the others all look so pretty too and I’m not sure whether to get something different.
Last but by all means not least is the sites best seller. Rose & Lily Hand Tied (6) bouquet. It’s clear why it is so popular it’s another gorgeous design. The mix of the pink roses and the oriental pink lilies look great and the green palm leaves make a great contrast in colour. This includes free chocolates.
Now you see why I am struggling to decide. Which do I choose, what would you guys advise?
