Autumn flowers

When you think of Autumn, you tend of think of crunchy leaves and big jumpers rather than flowers. But this Autumn Warmth bouquet is the season all wrapped in paper; oranges, greens and red berries. Delivery coincided with the completion of our new kitchen, so the kitchen windowsill seemed like the perfect place for them. Especially as I intended to spend lots of time in there.

Tucked inside the box was a leaflet containing some instructions. I unwrapped the flowers and trimmed the ends off the stalks, trying to put them back in the arrangement they arrived in.

And this is my bouquet in all its glory. Matches the kitchen well don’t you think?

I really love the colours. Yellowy orange in the roses, red in the Hypercium berries and lots of green in the foliage and lilies.

A few days passed before the lilies opened, but when they did the whole kitchen smelt lovely. Big, fragrant lilies really bought these flowers to life.

A box of chocolates arrived too so on a chilly Sunday I wrapped myself up on the sofa in a blanket and ate them for lunch! If you can’t eat chocolate for lunch on a Sunday, when can you?

I’ve been really impressed with these flowers; they lasted for two weeks! The roses lasted for nine days and the greenery and lilies for fourteen days. They came from Blossoming Gifts, an online retailer who specialise in flower delivery and gifts who sell a beautiful range of flowers including flowers by post and cheap flowers for under £20. Many come with free chocolates too.
