5 Reasons To Buy Flowers & Giveaway!

Candyfloss Carnations | Blossoming Gifts
I am such a typical girl when it comes to surprises and to be honest I partly blame my boyfriend, since he's surprised me so many times over the years with lovely flowers and even went to the extent of having the courage to surprise me on my 18th birthday with a bouquet of roses in front of a whole bar full of strangers and my family. I don't know what it is about flowers but they can really lift my mood and put a smile on my face.

I was kindly sent these Candyfloss Carnations from Blossoming Gifts* and they have got me smitten. These handmade stunning flowers are a traditional favourite of beautiful pink and white carnations with a twist of daisy, lovely for any occasion. These really brightened up my room and instantly lifted my mood. After a week of having them I went to London for 3 days and I was tempted to depot them since I figured they'd be dead when I got back, n'uh these little beauties stayed alive for just over 2 weeks which is amazing for flowers. Just goes to show not all flowers die instantly! I wanted to write a little post on 5 reasons to buy flowers as I personally think they make a great gift and I also have a beautiful bouquet to give out to one of you too!

1. Mood Booster - Freshly cut, bright flowers instantly can improve your mood. You could come home from a bad day at work and instantly feel less stressed or if you have just passed your university degree flowers can make you feel like you've achieved something.

2. Great Home Pieces - Buying a bouquet of flowers and spreading them around your house can really make a house feel more like a home, especially if they smell lovely and look eye catching.

3. Create Memories - Flowers can not only create new memories but let you relive ones that have already happened before. For example if I was to buy daffodils it would instantly remind me of spring and nice weather.

4. They Keep The Peace - Had a fight? Flowers can really help keep the peace or break the ice with your partner or a loved one.

5. They Smell Welcoming - A fresh bouquet of flowers have a lovely floral scent to it and it's really welcoming/relaxing to have that smell to come home to.

There are lots of other reasons why buying flowers is worth it but those are what stand out most for me. Blossoming Gifts have kindly giving me the opportunity to host a giveaway where one of you could win a bouquet of up to £35 of your choice from their website.
