I love receiving flowers through the post – doesn’t everyone? So when Vela sent me some of their luxury Letterbox Flowers I couldn’t wait to have them in a vase on the side, brightening up our home.
I have had letterbox flowers in the past and they have always been quite basic flowers but then the Vela delivery arrived I could see immediately that this would be a completely different experience. The Vela flowers arrived in a larger size box but still flat enough to fit through the letterbox.
Inside the flowers were carefully laid out, some with nets over the blooms to keep them safe in transit. The pack came with information cards, flower food and a note telling you to go online to find out how to take care of and arrange your new flowers. So I went on the Vela website and was directed two two videos – the first one about how to trim the flower stems and remove leaves.
After that I watched a video tutorial on how to arrange the flowers in the best possible way so that I ended up with a bouquet that could easily have come straight from the florist. Admittedly, my flower arranging skills are not perfect but the finished result was so much nicer than the vase of flowers I usually end up with when I’ve arranged them myself.
The Vela flowers I was sent made the Frosted Thistle bouquet – beautiful avalanche roses surrounded by blue bell thistles and other complimenting flowers and foliage. The bouquet is absolutely stunning and the perfect flowers to brighten up any home even in dreary January.
Vela offers a flower subscription service where you can get a bouquet delivered to your door each month or you can just buy an individual bouquet for yourself or as a gift. The service costs £25 per month but can be as low as £20 per month if you sign up to an ongoing subscription.
