*Prestige Flowers Review

Last week I was contacted by Prestige Flowers asking me if I’d like to review one of their bouquets. Of course I said yes, who says no to free flowers? I was told I’d be sent their Tikal Bouquet and after looking at photos on their website I was really excited to receive my flowers. And when Royal Mail delivered my box (yes, they come in a box!) I was not disappointed.

I was lucky enough to be sent a vase, too-which is an optional extra you can choose to add for £5.99. You could also add a box of chocolates or a teddy for a small fee. I think it’s really good that you have the option to personalise your gift. I’m glad I was sent a vase because these flowers wouldn’t have fit in the small vase I own!

At £34.99 for a small bouquet, going up to £44.99 for a large, (I’m not sure what size bouquet I was sent) these are not cheap as flowers go, but I do think that for a mix of quite exotic flowers, it’s worth the price tag. I don’t really know flowers, apart from the standard ones, but from a quick look at the website I now know the bouquet contains ‘mango orange callas and roses with complementary blooms, thistles and aspidistra’ I think the colours work really well together, making the flowers nice and bright and something I got lots of compliments on from everyone who visited.

After spending ages taking photos of these in the garden, I popped them into the vase and brought them inside. And then I put them in my lounge, away from the window-which I think was a mistake. Sadly, after about a week, these flowers were starting to die, and I threw them out after a week and a half. I have had longer lasting flowers before, but in my last house I kept them on the kitchen windowsill so that’s most probably why. I don’t think a week is BAD, I just wish I’d had the beautiful flowers for longer.

I’d definitely consider buying from Prestige Flowers again, probably not for me (as it’s easy enough for me to just pop to the florist and choose some-I like to physically look at things before I buy ideally) but for friends across the country, they’ll definitely be getting Prestige Flowers deliveries from me.

Thank you so much for the flowers, Prestige Flowers!

    The colours are really lovely in this bouquet, shame they didn’t last a little longer x

    That is such a lovely bouquet! I often find where I keep them makes a big difference to how long they last as well. My parents porch can keep flowers going for weeks it is amazing! x

    Although Prestiege is not in my price range I do think the flowers are gorgeous, they look so exotic.

    What a beautiful bouquet! I would love these in my house too. I think a week isn’t too bad for something so gorgeous.

    Oh these are absolutely stunning! Shame about the price tag though, it’s about 10 times as much as I usually spend on flowers haha

    These flowers are gorgeous, they always make such nice gifts don’t they xx

    That is a brilliant business idea to provide vases too – so often we get lovely flowers but have nothing to put them in. I think a week in summer is a fair amount of time to expect them to last too. They look wonderfully rich in colour – those calla lilies are beautiful.

    Wow those flowers are absolutely beautiful! I love how brightly coloured they are xxx

    These flowers are simply amazing! I’ve just looked on the Prestige website and they certainly would make amazing gifts! They do come with somewhat of a price tag, but you get what you pay for as they say

    Oh wow, these flowers are absolutely stunning. How vibrant are their colours! I don’t think I’ve ever seem such a bright, colourful bouquet. Stunning
