A floral surprise from The Flower Studio – review and giveaway

I do love having fresh-cut flowers in the house and before my son was born, they were a regular feature in my living room.  These days I’m trying to get back to that routine, as flowers really do brighten up the dullest of days.  It’s nice to have them in the house without the need of a special occasion, don’t you think? But the men of this particular household needed a little reminder of that recently when I received a floral surprise from The Flower Studio.

My husband had taken delivery of a large box from The Flower Studio whilst I was out. His first comment when I got home was to ask who was sending me flowers when my birthday was still a few weeks away. Does there have to be a particular reason to send someone flowers? It’s actually quite nice to receive flowers just because someone can send them to you. No reason required.

The Amethyst Wild Flowers bouquet I received from The Flower Studio came hand tied, with flower food , in a specifically designed box to ensure that the bouquet looked as if had literally just been put together.  It looked perfect.

The Marlow based floristry team prides itself on its range of unique bouquets and I liked this specific bouquet as it’s a little different from the norm. This particular bouquet, from the Garden Collection includes white spray roses with lilac Veronica and white Wax flowers pulled together with mixed grasses.

Over the course of the last week I’ve watched as a floral surprise from The Flower Studio has bloomed into life.  The delicate roses have been a joy to watch as their petals have fully unfurled.  The whole bouquet is very delicate and understated.

The Flower Studio make up a whole range of bouquets, some of which can be delivered in vases or even chocolates.  If you’re looking for something to brighten up your home, then have a look at that Spring Flower collection, they really do look stunning. Bouquets come with free 3-4 day standard delivery, or you can pay extra for express and next day delivery.

I'm a Mum with an 8 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.

  1. I would gift the flowers to neighbour, who is recently home from hospital. As a Welcome Home gift, as she had been in hospital for some time, and had been eager to return home. Worth Celebrating her recovery, and return home.

  2. If I was lucky enough to win I would give it to my mum because she loves flowers and amethyst is her birthstone 🙂

  3. I would love to keep the flowers for myself, flowers really brighten up a room, and unless I buy them for myself, I don’t receive flowers.

  4. I just love fresh flowers. Usually at this time of year I can cut daffodils and tulips from the garden but they’re really slow this year, so I’d keep this for myself!

  5. I love fresh flowers so yes I would have to keep for myself – would be a lovely treat and a nice cheery upper

  6. They’d stay with me I’m afraid, but I absolutely love flowers and rarely get given them! I’d give them a very good home.

  8. I’d give them to my mum because she loves fresh flowers and it’s lovely to treat her for no particular reason.

  9. Having a really difficult time with my husband at the moment so would love to treat myself for a change.

  13. I’d send it to my sister in Morecombe. She had that awful virus that was going round and was coughing for 9 weeks!!! Poor thing.

  14. I would give this bouquet for myself it’s absolutely gorgeous and seems ages since i had fresh flowers in my home

  17. I’d give the flowers to my mum, she helps look after my little boy whilst i’m at work, i’m lucky to have her

  19. I would keep the flowers for myself to perk me up. It has been a rather mentally challenging month so far and these would most certainly lift my spirits

  20. I’d keep the bouquet for myself as I love flowers. So do my children. If ever I get a bunch of flowers, they always have to be divided up so that my daughters can have some in their rooms as well

  21. They would go to my Mum, as you said, flowers sent ‘for no particular reason’ are sometimes the nicest. She’d love them.

  27. I’d send it to my sister for thank her for offering to babysit for my son lots during the Summer holidays

  28. If I was lucky enough to win these gorgeous flowers I would give them to my daughter who is struggling at the moment with the pressures of school and exams. I’d give them to her to show her how beautiful and perfect she is to me.
