There's something about flowers that makes the surroundings look more alive and colourful. Not only are they beautiful to have around the house, flowers are the perfect props for us bloggers. Flat lay for insta anyone?
I thought I'd share my experience on getting a bouquet of flowers from a Sydney based florist, Fresh Flowers and my thoughts on their services. Spoiler alert: I'm impressed!
Fresh Flowers offers same-day flower delivery to Melbourne and most major cities in Australia, if you place your order before 2am during weekdays and 10am on Saturdays. That aspect really sold me. I mean if you are in need of a last minute gift for someone, Fresh Flowers got your back. I think giving flowers to people you care about and love is such a great gesture.
Sooo, I had a really hard time picking out which flowers I wanted cause they were all so beautiful. After going through all the flowers on the site like about eight times, I decided to get a bouquet of flowers called Pink Pop. I just adore the combination of the pink roses and yellow Gerbera. The colours definitely pops and instantly makes me smile when I look at it.
I also love that personal touch that you can customize your own message on the card. I was having a stressful day so I decided to have the message, "you deserve it!" written on it.
When I received the flowers, the delivery guy was suppose to take the flowers out of the box but he didn't. So the water drenched through the box and got a little messy. Silly delivery guy.
Once I took it out of the box, I was super happy with the bouquet of flowers presented in front of me. What you see on the site is what you get, which is great.
They also included a little care tips card for flowers noobs like myself, who aren't an expert on looking after fresh flowers, The only thing that I was a little bummed about was that I didn't received a sachet of flower food that was meant to be included. That means my flowers won't lasts as long as it should have.
My bunch of flowers costs $59.95AUD and the delivery fee is $10AUD. It's leaning towards the expensive side for me (poor uni student status), but I think you get what you pay for. The quality and services that they provide is wonderful. The flower are presented beautifully and are very fresh.
Overall, I will definitely order from Fresh Flowers again for special occasions such as a friend's graduation or birthdays. I have the flowers for over a week now and they're still looking mighty fine, which I'm really surprised as I mentioned before that I didn't received the flower food. So big love for Fresh Flowers and I definitely recommend you to order from!
So tell me, what's your favourite type of flowers?
