With Mother’s Day fast approaching, there will always be the last minute rush for cards and gifts ready to surprise Mum with on the big day… and once again Arena Flowers are here to help you out of a fix!
Arena Flowers is ‘one of the leading online florist in the UK, offering the highest quality flowers from around the world at excellent prices. All of Arena Flowers bouquets and flowers arrangements are not only beautiful and fresh, but also affordable and great value – as flowers should be.’
From bright and vibrant , to classic and subtle, Arena Flowers really do have something for everyone this Mother’s Day…
For me it would have to be theSpring Rainbow bouquet – a beautiful and vibrant mix of yellow roses, orange and red tulips and blue iris. I got engaged in Amsterdam (obvious tulip link!)… and then married in April so we had tulips in my bouquet and as a theme for the wedding flowers. If ever I am lucky enough to be bought flowers, you can usually bet there is a tulip there somewhere!
So, you can imagine how thriilled I was when a familiar box landed on my doorstep…
…containing the most beautiful bunch of flowers (with tulips!). Made up from 8 Blue Iris’, 5 Orange and 5 Red tulips and 2 sprays of Yellow Roses, the Spring Rainbow bouquet is hand tied and comes in vibrant purple film:
Including delivery, the bouquet is priced at £29.99. It doesn’t come with the vase as standard, but it can be added as an extra for just £4.99. As usual, the flowers arrived exactly when expected and in perfect condition… the cleverly designed box means that the flowers arrive upright and held in place, with a special pack wrapped around the stems offering them moisture on their journey and ensuring they arrive in tip top shape!
The flowers also come with a sachet of flower food… so they were put straight in a vase with the food and onto my fireplace. On arrival the tulips and iris were still unopened while the delicate yellow roses were beginning to spread…
On the second day the flowers had settled beautifully in the vase and were beginning to spread their petals and open. One or two of the red tulips were beginning to reveal their dark black centres (the filament and anthers if I am being technical!) and the iris were sharing their vibrant blue colour. The roses were also relaxing and filling out. I was pleased that the tulips had kept their heads up too… as sometimes tulips can droop! Not these though… they were as proud as ever!
The flowers in the Spring Rainbow bouquet are now almost fully open and in FULL glory… they are absolutely stunning and still as vibrant as the day they arrived. Most of the red tulips have revealed their black centres whilst the orange tulips are still a little tigher and haven’t quite revealed what is inside. The iris have spread and filled out and the roses are starting to grow too, relaxing their petals. The scent is delicate… but fresh!
The red tulips are just beginning to turn and droop just a little, whilst the orange tulips are still not fully open… they are still being shy and not showing their centres! The iris are now fully spread and in full bloom, whilst the roses are in different stages, some more developed than others. For me this is a huge plus as, while the red tulips may be past their best in a few more days, the other flowers will last on… so the bouquet will just change! I think the flowers will last at least 10 days… probably even longer!
