Good Morning Everyone!
I hope you all had a great weekend. My goal was to get more rest. I felt horrible last week. I was going to be bed around 1 and couldn't get up in the mornings. Then my legs hurt, I just don't know.
I am enjoying my new organizational tools. Especially my new free standing closet in the laundry room. It is wonderful. I do adore it.
In today's post, I wanted to share my recent experience with Grace Rose Farms. We all have been seeing their beautiful flowers on Instagram. It seemed as though every beautiful Instagram page that I followed someone was posting their bouquet from them.
I decided to give them a try and ordered the Lovely Mother's Day Bouquet. It was pretty expensive. The cost of shipping was $25 for the next day because the flowers are perishable.
This is the Lovely Mother's Day Bouquet that was advertised on the website.
But I wanted to see this for myself. So below is my box when it arrived.....
It arrived early in the morning to give you enough time to get it into water asap.
The beautiful instruction manual.
The instructions tell you to get them into fresh cold water as soon as you get them and let them soak for 2 hours before cutting them.
There is an icepack inside the wrapping with the flowers.
This is what they looked like when I opened them.
After two hours I cut the roses at a 45-degree angle and made sure that the plant food was in the water.
Day 2: They have opened more.
You can smell them more.
Day 3: Gorgeous!
I was really shocked at how much they opened and how they changed by day 3. They were so fragrant. My husband kept smelling them.
This particular bouquet came with this ribbon. I just tied it around my vase.
Day 4: Stunning!
Day 6: WOW!!!
I truly enjoyed this bouquet. The beautiful mixture of the scented roses and the mint. It was just heavenly.
My husband ordered a second bouquet. He ordered the Graceful Mother's Day Bouquet.
It arrived early in the morning in the same box, packed the same way with instructions.
Day 1: What they looked like when the arrived.
I put them in cold water, allowed them to hydrate for 2 hours, then cut them at a 45-degree angle, and just watched.
Day 2: Opening more and lovely
Day 3: Bigger and brighter
Day 4: More fragrant and now the smaller roses are opening.
Day 5: Very happy
I can't tell you how pleasantly surprised I was with these flowers. They do look so scary when you first open your box. I must admit that I thought I was going to have to send a disappointing email but I didn't. Their roses held up to the standard and quality that they promise. They are so gorgeous and so fragrant. It was certainly a nice process to watch.
I will be ordering some again. I love receiving flowers that are different. My husband and I were getting very bored with our flowers here in Indy. It is nice to know that there are companies such as this one that provides you with other beautiful floral options. You should order a bouquet when you can.
Thank you for reading!
