Christmas flowers

Christmas bouquet from Prestige Flowers

If you follow me on Instagram you'll know I'm a big fan of flowers. I buy them pretty much every week to decorate our dining table, and if the bunch is big enough, I'll split it to create another small arrangement for the kitchen window. I mostly go for simple bunches of roses from the local supermarket, but every now and then I splash out and get some beautiful stems from the local florist, and when I say splash out, I mean £20 for 6 roses!

You can imagine my excitement when Prestige Flowers got in contact to see if I'd like to review one of their Christmas bouquets - I pretty much squealed! I took at look at their Christmas arrangements and two immediately jumped out - the Festivity bouquet and the Winter Warmer bouquet (pictured). I had no idea which they'd send me, so I was very excited to open the box when it arrived, and was super happy when I saw it was the Winter Warmer bouquet :)

In the bouquet there's some greenery that's been sprayed copper, which I really love for an accent. In the bouquet you can expect white chrysanthemums, white lilies, avalanche roses and Christmas stars, as well as a variety of greenery.

All the flowers in the box were in tact and un-damaged - no bad leaves, flowers, greenery etc, everything was perfect. It's a lovely full bunch too, jam packed. I absolutely love the quality of the roses too - a far cry from the cheap & cheerful supermarket roses I usually buy. These are large, full and in beautiful condition.

With the flowers they also sent me a lovely little vase that holds the arrangement really well, and a box of chocolates! Sadly, as I'm dairy-free I couldn't have any, however, the hubby demolished most of them (other than the fruity ones) and Squidge polished off the rest :) Hubby said the chocolates were delicious, and Squidge inhaled them without a second thought too.

The Winter Warmer bouquet is on offer at the moment starting from £24.99 - adding £10 if you opt for the large one (which I think mine probably is), add £5.99 if you want to add the vase too, and the chocolates are free.

What I've really loved about these, is how it's opened my mind to treating myself to a proper bouquet like this a little more often - they're only a few ££ more than the stems I buy from my local florist now and then, and this is a full blown bouquet. I also really like that these would make a beautiful centrepiece for the Christmas dinner table and could easily be split up to make a couple smaller arrangements.
