I love flowers. I love buying them and I love receiving them. I love them looking pretty in a vase inside our home, brightening up the rooms and letting their sweet scent fill the air.
My grandma loves flowers so much that she has her own, small garden of orchids and other tropical flowers back in Manila. I think I got the flower-lovin bug from her. Though I must admit that patience isn’t one of my strongest suits so growing them on my own and tending to them daily is something that might just never happen.
In Manila, I had a special relationship with my personal florist. Seeing as we’ve been friends since we were 15, I’ve been spoiled with flowers for a loooong time. (If you’re reading this – Hi Chuckay!)
Since moving here to Malaysia, my husband and I haven’t gotten around to getting flowers for the home even though we often say that we would. This is mainly because of two reasons: flowers are a bit pricey in the KLCC area and we just don’t know where to get nice ones.
Along came Bloom This, a company that offers luxury subscription boxes for flowers and delivers them right on to your doorstep! The moment I learned about this service from my friend Tammy (due to her post and Bloom This’ appearance at the Blogging 101 workshop that Tammy organised), I was over the moon.
The prices are so affordable and the flowers you get are the ones you’d actually like to be in your home – luxury flowers, as the company calls it. Just last week, I was the envy of my friends back in Manila, my mom, and a couple of other friends here in KL when they saw that I have peonies at home. That’s right! Peonies! <3 <3 https://instagram.com/p/4eYp_Xiqd-/
My favourite flower that only blooms for a short time during the year. And I do mean short. It blooms during the spring/summer season so when I got married in October of 2013, I didn’t get my peony bouquet. (I had blood red roses instead which made me happy too! I wasn’t a Bridezilla! Haha!)
Point is – getting peonies this time was actually rather special for me. 🙂 Ok, now back to Bloom This. Here are a few more things why you should consider getting your flowers there.
Beautiful packaging Bloom This flowers come in a bespoke, eco-friendly box. The flowers inside are also wrapped beautifully so they make beautiful gifts too! I recently brought a box of gerberas from Bloom This to a dinner party and the hosts just loved it! 🙂 Each delivery is also personalised! I love this sweet touch as well as the cards that come with care instructions and background info about the flowers you got! The element of surprise I love getting surprise flowers. I mean, who doesn’t? Bloom This gives you that feeling during their Thursday deliveries. What flowers will you get this time?
But don’t worry about getting flowers that won’t brighten up your living room or impress your guests. Each delivered box contains a carefully curated ensemble of loose, luxury, and (guaranteed!) fresh flowers.
Fresh and Long Lasting The flowers that have been delivered to me looked like they were freshly picked! I also followed the instructions at the back of the cards that came with the delivery and my flowers lasted quite a while – despite the really hot weather! It took about 5 days before my flowers started to show signs of wilting.
Total effect on the home When the flowers arrived last Thursday, I actually told him that I felt like totally getting my Diplomat’s Wife hat on and hosting and intimate dinner party right then and there. Just because our home was looking rather snazzy due to the presence of the flowers. 😉 However, it was rather impossible to get people together at such short notice and the following days were quite busy for us. There’s always the next couple of weeks when I get new flowers, right? 😉
