Now I don’t often do review posts on my blog any more – mainly because I generally find them excruciatingly boring to read on other people’s – but when the nice people at Interflora offered me an item of my choice from their range in return for a review, I’m afraid I couldn’t resist.
I selected this one, which comes ready-arranged in a vase (handy if you’re totally hopeless at flower arranging like me), and costs £44.99, plus £5.99 for delivery.
My flowers were delivered on Thursday by a very pleasant delivery driver, and this is what I received (photo taken on the day of arrival).
The lilies are beautiful and full of fragrance – you can smell them as soon as you come into the house. The vase is good quality, too.
But I think you’ll agree when I say that I was disappointed that the actual product really didn’t look anything like the item I had selected from the website – in fact, it looked more like one of my own ‘get some flowers and stick ’em in a vase’ efforts.
If I’m honest, I was also a little surprised that there wasn’t any sort of wrapping or decoration – for that sort of price, I would really expect some cellophane and some sort of ribbon, for protection in transit if nothing else.
I would reiterate, though, that I cannot fault the flowers themselves – they are really lovely, and I would like to thank Interflora for the opportunity to review one of their products.
They have a wide range for delivery, and if you’d like to see what they offer, the link is here.
