Occasionally I get offered products in return for a review on my blog, usually I refuse, but what woman can say no to free flowers?! I was also encouraged to be completely honest, whether good or bad.
So on Tuesday I received a next day flower delivery from sunflowerguy.com, just the box immediately makes you smile, what a great message on a snowy day!
Andy who first contacted me about their flowers, says "The thing that is probably most unique about our business is our shipping container. We think it is superior to any other flower shipping method. It keeps the flowers hydrated, and prevents the bouquet from being crushed or damaged in any way. Our competitors simply pack flowers into a narrow box, which works if you’re a florist, but most consumers don’t want to have to cleanup, cut and rearrange their flowers."
I would agree with him. Not only is the box fun, but the instructions are clear and easy to follow.
In no time you are have your arrangement in hand and ready to display.
They are kept watered and in place with this oasis, as soon as you unpack them it tells you to remove it and put them straight into water with the food supplied.
Nearly all their flowers are "grower direct", they grow all the sunflowers and most of the greens, with a few other flowers sourced locally in California. They are the largest (through the parent company Dos Gringos) grower of ornamental sunflowers in the world and who doesn't love sunflowers?
The bouquets are all designed by reknowned floral designer, René van Rems and there are many lovely styles available. The one I received, California Medley is a wonderful mix of reds and golds, it's been brightening up my kitchen window all week.
It's nice to get the occasional reward for all our hardwork blogging and I can say without doubt this was one of the nicest, the flowers are beautiful.
