Serenata Flowers Giveaway.




I was approached last week by Serenata Flowers to review their services, pick something of my choice and obviously mention the sent choice. 


I would already recommend them for service and quality of flowers as I have used them before,  I accepted to try a different bouquet and look at the additional services Serenata offer

I have previous experience with Serenata flowers, as I had arranged for some flowers to be sent to my Mum, I was lucky enough to have won a bunch of my choice, sadly she worsened before I arranged delivery and Serenata dealt with everything really well, happy to change the order and a lovely message via email and also in the card, the flowers came to me along with many other sympathy bouquets that week.



Flowers comfort me and cheer my spirit. They have a way to make me smile and as the saying goes, flowers say more than a thousand words.


I was approached last week about reviewing something of my choice. I would already recommend them for service and quality of flowers, but the chance to try a different bouquet and look at the additional services you can choose was on offer.

The site is very easy to navigate, bestsellers are on the front page, flower suggestions for different events, as you expect from an online firm.





One feature that turned out be a very good indication of Serenata Flowers was the same day delivery,  I had just received my bouquet and the lovely Erica from Eclectic Enchantments  mentioned wanting to send flowers on the spur of the moment for Chelsea from MS Mummy Of Two. I suggested she try them and she ordered the flowers at 9.45 am and they arrived with Chelsea just before 4pm.

So reliability for delivery for  a non blog order is as good as mine.

Back to my choice, I adore roses and wanted a scented bouquet, I decided rather than go for one of the average sizes, I would choose a cheaper bouquet and then go large!! Rather like a fast food store but without the calories!!!



I also decided to order a vase, the only small glitch in the whole process in fact was user error.  I did not estimate just how large the flowers would be.  I love the little frosted vase and will be great for future buys. 

So for £30 I got a large display of fresh, long lasting flowers, a vase and free delivery. 




I have to comment on the aroma, the heady scent of stocks as I opened the box  filled the room and has for days.

There was a handy instruction card on how best to treat the flowers, likening them to a guest, getting them settled, taking their outdoor things off, giving them a drink etc.




Then they were ready. I will let the pictures do the rest.



I just wished the weather was brighter as the colours are much more vibrant!! The buds are still coming out 7 days on.

If flowers don't appeal, there are plants, wine, chocolate and food  on the site  so lots to choose from.

OK so here is the interesting part for you, a giveaway!!!

Serenata are giving a Given To Distracting Others reader the chance to win £30 to spend on the website!

I received £30 to spend with Serenata Flowers, my views are my own.
