Flowers for Valentines or all year round from Appleyard London
I love being given flowers. It’s one of those things that seem just a little self-indulgent (though I must confess to using all sorts of excuses to buy myself flowers too). A flower delivery to my door is always a treat and the ‘early valentines bouquet I was sent by Appleyard last week was particularly spectacular. Having just moved house, I’m still at the stage where things are a bit disorganised. I have a full room full of boxes. My living room is ‘nearly’ there, but I still need to get blinds for the windows, pictures for the walls and work out how to deal with the lack of book cases. It just looks a little sad – dust marks round where the previous owners had pictures hanging and a rather eclectic collection of floor coverings that are there to ‘make do’ till I decide exactly what should be there.
Flowers make everything alright though. Actually I suspect I’ve got a little hooked on fresh flowers because I made a point of having a vase in the living room while I was selling my old flat. So I was thrilled to be invited to preview the Appleyard valentine collection. Sadly no one has sent me valentines flowers for a few years now. And, I don’t care if mine did arrive a month or so too early – perhaps the review will be enough of hint!
My beautiful bouquet arrived in a tasteful grey carrier. Resilient enough to ensure that the flowers arrived in perfect condition, my first impression was good.
Peeking inside I found a wonderful arrangement of scented freesia, old fashioned pink and red roses and eustoma. I then spent a lot of time taking photos!
This is the goddess bouquet and is just one of the valentine special bouquets at Appleyard. Priced just under £50 I think it is excellent value at a time of year when even a single rose can cost more than £20. One of the things I really like about the Appleyard flowers is that their arrangements are really very contemporary. By that I don’t mean uber-modern, there are clear design trends there – like the ‘shabby chic’ and ‘heritage’ collections. And, everything is very tasteful.
