Prestige Flowers - A Review

I still remember the first time that I was bought a beautiful bouquet of flowers and how special and loved it made me feel. It was a couple of days before my wedding and my husband (fiance at the time) had arranged for a huge bouquet of flowers to be delivered to my workplace. I remember everyone stopping by my desk to admire them, and my colleagues asking questions about who had bought them for me and why.

With the ordering of flowers now easily accessible online, without a trip to the local florist, it is a great way to show someone special just how much you care. Flowers have the amazing ability to make you feel loved and generate a great feeling of happiness. It is also a lovely feeling to know that at a certain moment in time, you were the only person on someones mind when they were busy arranging such a lovely gesture and gift.

Prestige Flowers have a fantastic website, which features a whole host of flower arrangements for all occasions and to suit most budgets. The site is very user friendly and easy to navigate, and the categories displayed across the top of the page make it easy to find the perfect gift for your loved one or friend. It is also a pleasure to the eye to be able to see a selection of their beautiful bouquets on the home page, which really do leave you spoilt for choice.

A few days ago, I was fortunate to receive a beautiful bouquet from Prestige Flowers. It came delivered in a lovely box, that was nicely decorated and well presented. The box was easy to carry with useful handles cut into the box, and it wasn't too heavy to bring in from the doorstep to the living room. Enclosed inside was a flower care guide, a small box of chocolates and the stunning flowers that were neatly and safely wrapped.

My stunning bouquet came in a sleek black wrapping, and a black gift bag with long handles to make it easy to remove from the box. It featured 12 red roses, arranged with hypericum berries and folded aspidistra leaves and looked amazing. My living room is very monochrome and so it was lovely to feature deep red & green colours which complemented the room beautifully and of course added a gorgeous scent too.

Once I had removed all the packaging they were even more breathtaking and I promptly found a lovely vase to display them in, and placed them on my unit in the corner of the living room where any visitors would be sure to notice them.

The flower care guide was a nice addition as it provided information specific to caring for the roses on the inside, along with information on Lily care, Tulip's and Freesia which is ideal to put aside for future reference. It also enclosed a lovely a surprise of a £5 voucher which can be used against future purchases, and on the reverse there were 7 essential tips listed which are always useful to know. The guide is only little so it is easy to store away and refer to when needed.

As mentioned previously, the flowers also came with a lovely little box of chocolate truffles and oh my they were delicious. I am not the biggest chocolate fan, but these bite sized truffles were literally a melt in the mouth delight. I had hidden them from the children so it was also great to not have to share them!

I really enjoyed arranging the flowers into the vase and I am sure you will agree they looked stunning. I have had so many compliments this week from guests all asking where they were from. The great thing about Prestige Flowers is that their Valentine's range starts from only £19.99 and so I had no issue in recommending them to my friends and family as I believe that their bouquets offer excellent value for money. You can also add additional gifts such as balloons, teddies, champagne and chocolates to make a lovely bundle.

Nearly a week later and the roses still look fantastic, and the berries have also started to open into a beautiful yellow colour. I have had them placed in the corner of the room, but I've also moved them in the vase to the window for a few hours each day to ensure that they were in the sunlight and I think that this has helped to keep them in great condition, along with the advice provided in the flower care guide.

Overall I have been really impressed with Prestige Flowers and I would gladly recommend them to others. The bouquet was stunning, but I also think it is important to get the little things right too, such as the packaging and delivery as these all add to the experience, and Prestige Flowers seem to have got this just right. The user friendly website, competitive and reasonable pricing, and their stunning ranges all help to make Prestige Flowers a go to site for your next flower bouquet.
