The Raspberry Delight Bouquet
Carnations are a popular choice and pink ones signify gratitude and red admiration. Sunflowers signal adoration and respect, whilst orchids represent love refinement and beauty. Roses are very popular, yellow signifies devotion, mid pink grace and dark pink gratitude. Orchids symbolises love, refinement and beauty and violets faithfulness and devotion.
Personally I love a bright bouquet of flowers in bright pinks, reds and yellows as beautiful colours cheer me up. Roses, sunflowers and gerberas are some of my favourite flowers too, so I was spoilt for choice when Debenhams kindly asked me to choose a bouquet of flowers for Mother's Day to review.
Flower delivery with Debenhams Flowers is next day if you order by 4pm and they guarantee the flowers to be fresh for 7 days. This is extremely important to me as there is nothing more disappointing than a bouquet of flowers that drops within a couple of days.
The selection of Mothers Day flowers from Debenhams is super and varied, from subtle hues of pale pinks and cream to bright vibrant flowers. I chose the Raspberry Delight bouquet, a cheerful mix of roses, carnations and germini in reds, vivid pinks and cream. The flowers also arrived with a dinky box of Guylian chocolates which I felt was a lovely touch.
Well packed flowers with care instructions attached
When the flowers arrived they were well packed in a box and delivered to my doorstep by Royal Mail. As I opened the box I was impressed in how well looked after they appeared, they were packed and tied together, just as how you would present a bunch of flowers, and the quality was very good. None of the flowers has damaged petals or leaves and they arrived mostly in full bloom, and a couple of the roses in bud.
With the flowers came care instructions and flower food attached. The care instructions were simple and easy to understand. You are advised to trim the stems by 2-3cm and remove any leaves below the waterline. You add the sachet of flower food to water and arrange the flowers as required. Other advice on making the flowers last longer was also provided.
Just looking at these flowers made me happy!
I loved this bunch of flowers as they were bright and cheerful, just looking at them made me happy! I felt the bright pinks and reds mixed well with the white carnations. The lasted well and were still looking great on the 7th day.
I would recommend Debenhams Flowers as I feel the quality is good and although not the cheapest the price is good value for what you get. With next day delivery and the guarantee that they would last 7 days, I would definitely order from them again in the future.
