Be a social butterfly...

When I first moved into my own home, I used to get really excited about the post being delivered.  I know, I know, it sounds mad but I loved it.  Every day I looked forward to seeing envelopes with my name on, as though it were a sign that I was a proper grown up!   Of course along with alot of the things that come with being a grown up, the novelty soon wore off!   I came to accept that unless it was one of our birthdays or I’d been on an online shopping spree, the post would seldom bring anything that was worth getting excited about.

These days as I’m on maternity leave, the main reason I’m keento see the Postie is for the few minutes of adult conversation that he gives me 🙂 but recently I received an unusual delivery that made me rethink what can be sent through the post.  I got flowers!  Yes flowers – through Royal Mail!

While we might not love everything that comes through the post (be gone bills and junk mail – you are not welcome here!) in my whole life, I’ve only ever met one person who didn’t like to receive flowers.    There’s something about having fresh flowers in the house that makes you feel special and these flowers were very special indeed.

Flowercards come in a box and inside they’re secured in place by a second box that lifts out.   There’s a tag which you can personalise to suit the occasion, whether it’s a birthday, Christmas or just because.   But what I love about the flowers is how different they are to the usual floral gifts.   Instead of a hand tied bouquet, or a traditional spray of long stemmed flowers, mine was a petite posy in a delicate china tea cup.

The Flowercard comes with a dropper.  You use it to poke holes in the oasis inside the teacup and squirt water into it.   The flowers lasted a surprisingly long time!  They were still looking very pretty two weeks later, though the large rose had dried a little.  I didn’t mind though.  Roses are my favourite flower and even dried, I think they’re just beautiful.

The tea cup posy would look great on a dressing table in a baby’s room or because it’s petite, on a desk, making it a great gift idea to have posted to an office.  Then after the flowers have faded, you have a lovely tea cup to add to your collection. 🙂
