Peony Perfection | Blossoming Gifts








Confession: I used to hate flowers. I know, how can anyone hate flowers? When I was younger I thought flowers were useless and messy. Why would anyone want to put them in their home? I was totally lost at the thought. So I can tell definitely that my taste matured over the last year or so, because I can really see the difference that a bouquet for fresh flowers makes to the home. I have become such a floral enthusiast, and just love having a bunch of beautiful petals to add that subtle femininity to my home. As I have quite a minimal, modern taste, this paramount to providing some pretty softness to any room!

When Blossoming Gifts got in contact to offer me a bouquet of my choice to review, I fell head over heels for these perfect Peonies*. I had actually never bought a peony bouquet before, but had seen them in so many IG posts (they are so instagrammable) so I just had to get a bunch. When they arrived, they were just as beautiful as I expected!

The peonies came in perfect condition - bar a few damaged buds, but this is expected - and they fully opened to very big, beautiful blossoms. I'm not 100% sure how long these beauties are meant to last, but mine looked perfect for around 7 days. Plus, did you spot some of the instagram posts I created with the fallen petals? What a creative flatlay prop!
