Say it with Flowers

We may be living in an age of email, texts and social media, but I still believe there's something pretty special about sending a bunch of flowers or a greeting card to let someone know you're thinking of them. In fact, scrap that - I think the fact that it's slightly quaint these days makes it even more special!

When I heard about Flowercard, I was intrigued. As the name suggests, it combines mini bouquets with a cute greeting card, so you can send someone some beautiful blooms together with a heartfelt message, straight through the post. I thought this was a lovely idea, and very kindly, they offered to send me one so I could check the service out for myself. This is what I received. Pretty, no?

Flowercard 1

It arrived with the regular post in an attractive blue box, and certainly made me smile when I opened it up. It was ever so slightly battered from its journey, but once I had given it a little bit of TLC, it looked really lovely. Flowercard provide a few tips on how to look after your gift, and include a little pipette so that you can water your flowers and prolong their life for as long as possible, which I thought was a nice touch.

The card I went for is called Peach Frills, but there's loads to choose from. If you fancy having a browse, you can do so here.

Flowercard 3

As for the message, I opted to send myself three motivational little words, but you can of course pick anything you like (up to 100 characters), whether that's "congratulations", "get well soon", "I love you" or just "thinking of you".

A little bit more special than just a card, but without any need for the recipient to arrange a huge bunch of flowers, Flowercards are a very cute way to show someone you care!

What do you think? Would you send a Flowercard, and would you like to receive one?

  14. Aww that's really cute! I like the idea of this. I always like receiving flowers. A few weeks ago I was telling some girls I just met that I get flowers for my home every week from Trader Joe's and they thought it was the coolest thing haha. To me it's normal! I love fresh flowers for my home. :)
