Best flowers for brightening your home, or your desk!
Flowers are a bona fide way to brighten your home and brighten your mood. Who can deny that a beautiful bouquet of flowers, whatever the size, has the power and natural beauty to transform a room. Unfortunately not all of us have the time to take a trip to the Columbia Road Flower Market every Sunday (although we recommend you do if you get a chance!) so we've investigated the best flower companies who can bring blooms just as fresh and beautiful direct to your home, or your office. Delightful!
Bloom & Wild
Treat yourself to a flower subscription with Bloom & Wild and you can have beautiful bouquets delivered direct through your letterbox. Prices start from just £18 for a bouquet and you can have them delivered every week, fortnight or month.
Delivering their flowers in gorgeous boxes, Bloom & Wild challenge traditional ways of buying your bouquets. They've created a concept that is modern and practical. However, their bouquets have a true charm, reminding us of whimsical English country gardens. Their carefully selected flowers are hand-packed and so with each bloom there's a personal touch, a fresh sense of nature, and indeed a little piece of imagination and the wild. Plus, you can sign up to receive a beautiful bouquet every month - what a treat!
Appleyard London make flower subscriptions super easy. As a gift for a loved-one, or for spoiling yourself, you simply choose how many months to subscribe for, where to send the flowers, and pick a package which start from £20 for a bouquet every month for a year - Appleyard London do the rest. The flowers arrive ready-bunched in a large box, with a hydration box to keep them fresh, so you may need a special place for the courier to leave them - as they won't be fitting through your letterbox!
Subscriptions from Flowerbx are slightly dearer, at £50 minimum per delivery, but rest assured they always deliver on quality. This is a company that knows a thing or two about grand gestures and grand displays, with the most eye-catching and beautiful of blooms. Notably, this year has seen the company take on impressive projects with Annabel's, Jimmy Choo and Harry's Bar in celebration of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. You may not wish to decorate your home with displays that are quite as extravagant, but why not bring some blooming glamour into your own home? We're loving Flowerbx's dinner party flower sets in particular, supplying everything you need to create the perfect floral ambience for entertaining your guests.
Stay tuned for more tips on getting creative, flower arranging, and bringing little bunches of brightness into your home and the workplace...
