Thanks for popping in. Friday’s blog a private peek, right?
A few weeks ago, when things were really getting on top of me, my darling friend Linda Williams sent me a bunch of fabulous flowers. Or should I say box? They came from London. Freddies Flowers is the name of the company. They were amazing flowers, and lasted ages! I was so impressed I decided to investigate the company….
So. Freddies Flowers is a family run business out of London. Freddies parents had a flower shop in Pimlico, and he grew up around flowers.
The flowers are always seasonal, and each week Freddie and his team create a fresh bouquet, based on what’s in season.
The box comes with beautiful, fresh, closed flowers – all ready to be arranged. There is a flyer inside the box, telling you about each bloom, what it is called, and even how to create the perfect arrangement.
You can choose whether you have the flowers sent to you every week, every fortnight, once a month – or just once. You can send them to friends as a treat. If you are having the flowers delived to your house every Friday, but you’re going to be away, you can redirect them to somebody else.
The website will tell you everything. It is blimming excellent.
Well, I decided to try it out. I signed up for the weekly delivery. I love fresh flowers in the house, and since lockdown we haven’t really had any. Dave is always so good at treating me to a lovely bunch, but all the flower shops have been closed.
Well, I have waited a month before sharing my review with you, to make sure that it actually does what it says on the tin. It does. It really does. I even redirected the flowers to Mum one week, to see if it would work. And it did. She loved them too.
As a business woman, I think the whole concept is sublime. The marketing, the pricepoint, the educational aspect, right down to Freddies Vase (which I also invested in). It has such a fresh, upbeat, happy, delightful feel to it, I decided to tell you about it too. many of you may already know about Freddies Flowers. Linda clearly did!
This morning, my Freddies Flowers box was already outside the front door at 8am
Last weeks flowers were still going strong, so I refreshed them and moved them out of the special vase into the old Spode jug….
It’s such a highlight during these dark times. Extravagant? Well, we haven‘t been to a restaurant since March, and we haven’t drunk hooch for 20+ years, so sod it. Bargain!!!
This week‘s flowers, complete with how to arrange…
And you even get to learn things too! Look!
And just in case the flowers were looking a little bit wilted, like me this week –
But they weren’t . They were delivered super duper early, before it could get warm.
Highly recommend checking out Freddies Flowers. 5 stars from me. It will make you smile. I actually look forward to and get excited about Friday Flower Day!!
Love and Hugs
PS They do not know I am writing this rave review. I gain nothing from doing so, except sharing something super with a bunch of fellow crafters .
It‘s really flowerful stuff.
