We’ll send you: one bundle of English roses in white and three singular stems in warm pink; three of our white peony bundles and two additional peony bud stems (for the most natural look); three white snowball stems (these look almost like miniature hydrangeas and are especially good at the elegant, trailing thing); two rowan blossom twigs; and one lush and leafy pittosporum stem. If you opt for the version with a vase, we’ll also send our large, round Alconbury.
The beauty of life-like
There’s so much to love about life-like flowers, the most obvious being that they’re long lasting and low maintenance. They also mean you can have out of season blooms without the carbon footprint of the real thing. Ours are considered in every way – from the petals to the leaves and stems – so they look and even feel incredibly realistic.
Tips for arranging
Place each stem into the vase (or, if you’d prefer, gather them in your hand first) at an angle so they splay out naturally to the sides, and if any look too stiff, our life-like stems are wired so you can manipulate them into place or bend some up at the base to create different heights. Make sure to check your arrangement from all sides as you go along too.
The perfect present
If you’d like to give this bouquet as a present (and you’re not sending it straight to the lucky recipient), then it’s very easy to wrap up. After gathering together your stems and securing them with a piece of twine, take a large square of paper and, placing your bouquet at an angle to the bottom corner, gradually roll it around the stems. Alternatively, simply arrange the stems in the vase and place a large bow around that.
Free for all orders over £50 (or €100 in Ireland).
If your order is available now, we’ll deliver it between 3-5 days of your order being placed.
If your order is not available straight away, an estimated date will be indicated above and at checkout. We’ll then get in touch nearer the estimated date to arrange a specific time.
We believe that returns should be easy, which is why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. And, you’ll also have 28 days to do so – just in case you need time to mull things over.
Just so you know
The wires in our stems are tough so you can’t accidentally snap them, so you’ll need something powerful if you want to trim them down. We’ve found long-handled loppers (the ones for pruning shrubs and trees) or wire cutters do the trick.
The wire inside also means you can’t put our stems in water for long or they’ll rust. So if you’re arranging them with real flowers, bend the life-like stems up out of the water.
