I arrived home to find a lovely surprise on my doorstep. There were the flowers and box of chocolates that Interflora had sent me to review. When they asked me to review one of their Mothers Day Gifts, I jumped at the chance. We are all mothers, who have mothers, so it is a fantastic product to have.
I was given some links on their website to browse, and I had a good old root through all the products they have on offer for Mothers day. There was a huge choice on offer, from hampers in the Mothers day gifts section, through to gorgeous Mothers day flowers, and the absolutely fabulous Spring flowers.
As a mother myself, and with special needs children, a bunch of flowers appearing in our house is a rare occurence. The only flowers that I usually see are the ones that I buy for other people. I decided that, for me, a gift with some chocolates would be appreciated in our house, with the flowers for me, and the chocolates for my children. It gave me the best of both worlds. As tempting as the Spring Gift with a bottle of wine was, I think my children appreciated the chocolates a lot more.
I chose the Scented Spring Perfect Gift with Chocolates, which was priced at £31.95.
I picked up the vase, with their box of chocolates and eagerly took it into my kitchen. I tried to take a nice shot of the flowers, but I’m not a professional photographer, so please forgive the shots if they look slightly amateurish.
Here are my flowers in all their glory on my mantlepiece, and they certainly brighten up my room.
The smells were absolutely fantastic as I walked along my corridor. Even my husband who is usually florally challenged said that they had a lovely smell. I was surprised to see the flowers were in the vase, with water already in it. I am guessing it is to preserve the life of the flowers, and for me it worked. I loved them just for the smell. The vase is quite a sturdy, heavy glass, definately a substantial vase.
The chocolates, well, they were lovely, as my boys could tell you. The box is rather nice, and with the little chiffon ribbon, looks very swish. Inside the box, the Maison Fougere chocolates for Interflora looked lovely. With 12 gorgeous chocolates, in a mix of dark and milk chocolate, there was something for all of us. There was even a competition here for who would get the red heart….You can hardly make out the red heart in this picture, but it really was a vibrant, lovely shade of red.
Apologies for this photo, as the chocolates have now been eaten, and I have no chance to take a better one.
The best part of all this, is that Interflora are allowing me to give away the same gift set that I received as a gift for Mothers Day. You, or your choice of recipient will receive the same bunch of flowers, with chocolates and the vase, and you can choose your own message to put on it. You can see the gift set on the website here.
