Monet once said 'I must have flowers always and always', and I wholeheartedly agree. Flowers are one of my favourite gifts to receive - they brighten up a room and instantly make me feel happy.

Appleyard London kindly got in touch to see if I'd like to receive one of their bouquets, and I couldn't wait to receive it. I chose the large Strawberry Smoothie* bouquet which is full of plump hydrangea, sweet avalanche roses, kimsey germini and white alstroemeria and is the perfect bunch for a summer occasion. The flowers were delivered to me yesterday, packaged upright in a sturdy, transportable box meaning they were well looked after if I wasn't able to get to them right away. I was a little disappointed to find my hydrangea* were so green as I was expecting them to be white, but it's still a lovely bouquet nonetheless.

*After hearing that my hydrangea weren't as expected, Appleyard proved their wonderful service, and kindly sent me out another bouquet.
