If you are looking for something extra special for Mother’s Day then make sure you take a peek at Appleyard Flowers, a boutique online flower shop.
I was sent a stunning bouquet through the post. The packaging was simple and stylish and the flowers arrived in excellent condition. It all arrived in a big box and was carefully bubble wrapped so it wouldn’t move about.
The flowers themselves were wrapped in white cellophane and placed in a hydration box. This is a clever box with florists foam inside which means the flowers stay hydrated but also seemed to keep the stems from being bruised.
The bouquet I chose was from the Mother’s day collection. There is a lovely selection of different flowers arrangements. I’ve recently realised that I prefer bunches of flowers of a single type not a mix of different flowers so I went for the Luxury Roses.
This lovely bouquet costs £29.99 which seems a great price for such a luxurious gift.
The bouquet contained soft pink and ivory sweet avalanche and avalanche roses with silver cinerea eucalyptus . This was a lovely combination and the colours of the roses are so soft and pretty.
The flower blooms were stunning. They seemed very fresh. There was slightly more foliage than in the website photos, but to me that offered a nice contrast.
I liked the fact there were a range of occasions catered for on the website. The new baby flower and gift sets are particularly lovely.
Several of the roses hadn’t opened out yet so I think they will last a long time. There is a 7 day freshness guarantee.
I was impressed that Appleyard offer next day flower delivery on orders placed before 7pm. What a great idea for if you have forgotten a birthday or special occasion! I will definitely be bookmarking this website and using them again. I thought they offered a great price for exquisite bunches of flowers. I’m certain every mother deserves such a luxurious parcel arriving at their door.
