As you may be able to tell from my instagram feed, Facebook page and general chat, I’m very into my flowers. Sightly obsessed some might say. My dream is to have my own cottage garden with cutting beds bursting with roses, hollyhocks, lupins, hydrangeas… But whilst I work on that (just give me a few years) I’m always looking for way to fill my house with beautiful flower without running up an Elton John style flower bill.
With that in mind, when a new flower delivery company, Bloomon, got in touch via my colleague – and fellow design blogger – Kate Burt of Your Home is Lovely, I was all ears. They very kindly offered to send me a bouquet and I thought no more of it. Until I walked into the office the other day to find the most beautiful bouquet of flowers waiting for me on my desk. Just take a look at a photo of them below – in my dining room – and see if you agree (there was no way I was leaving them in the office all weekend – I carefully carried them all the way home)
These beauties (the excellent vase was included too) absolutely made my day. There was one stem each of some of my absolute favourite flowers – roses, delphiniums, agapanthus, stocks, penstemon, iris… Without any of the sort of ‘filler flowers’ that you often get in shop bouquets.
And that’s the ethos behind Bloomon – ‘less is more’ – It’s a beautifully simple idea; they cut out all the fuss and the middlemen and just put together the sort of bouquets you wish you could yourself. Every bouquet is unique and mine was wonderfully sort of ‘cottage-garden-y’. The website has been kept super easy to navigate too, you just pick which size bouquet you want – small, medium or large, and tick whether you also want the vase to be included, then they deliver a hand tied bouquet of seasonal beauties to your door. Take a look at their website and have a little read of the story behind the business if you’d like to find out more.
I’m officially a fan. Do take a look and let me know what you think.
