Flower Bouquets through the Letterbox - With Bloom & Wild!

Bloom & Wild are a small company that send out beautiful flowers. What makes Bloom & Wild different from the millions of other bouquet companies out there is that their flowers are designed to fit into a thin box that pops through your letterbox, meaning that you don't have to worry about you or your recipient being in at a certain time - which is of course great for those of us who have busy lives, or if you're buying a bunch as a gift for someone else - you won't have to worry about giving the game away by making sure they stay in and wait!
Honesty Hour time - this is SUCH a delayed post. Bloom & Wild were actually lovely enough to send me out a box as a get well soon present after my surgery, but the camera card I took the photos on decided to have some issues. Obviously the nature of flowers meant I couldn't just take some more pictures at a later date - but it's sorted now, so here they are at last!

Here's the box that your bunch will come in. It definitely did fit through my letterbox with no problems at all - it's slightly thicker than a Graze box and about the length of two Hotel Chocolat boxes of chocolates (You can see what I normally order through the post, hey?) It's a sturdy enough box and I had no worries about any of the contents being destroyed through it!

Let's have a look inside then!

First up is a little introduction to the company, as well as a quick picture guide listing some of the flowers that Bloom & Wild use. Somewhat perplexingly, this didn't include most of the flowers actually in my bouquet! It also includes a little guide as to how they'd suggest you arrange your flowers to make a nice arrangement - This wasn't the most helpful in my case as the names of the flowers meant next to nothing to me and I had to sort of guess, so I went with improvisation instead!

Some of the flowers are wrapped up individually like this one to protect it. It's easy enough to take it off and it does do a good job at keeping the flower undamaged.

Ta-da! My completed bouquet. As you can see, the flowers look in good condition and you wouldn't be able to tell that they came in a box rather than hand delivered. Not all of the flowers are open yet when you receive your bouquet - I would say two of my lilies opened up that evening and the next morning and did look great and really added to them. Unfortunately the other lilies didn't open up :(

Overall, I really like the service that Bloom & Wild provides. I think it's a really interesting idea, and it's surprising to me that something like this didn't already exist! I love flowers, but I work odd shifts that are all over the place and I really resent having to stay in and wait for deliveries, so having the opportunity to receive my flowers straight through the letterbox is great for me. Though not all of the flowers opened up, they are in great condition and made a really impressive looking centerpiece in our living room. 

Letterbox bouquets like the one I've reviewed here cost £20. You have a choice of subscription packages and bouquets and can arrive every 3 months, every 6 months, or every year. Or just a single, if you prefer! This bouquet is called The Emma and is still available, or you can choose The Lucy or the Beatrix if you prefer the reds. To view the full range and order your own bouquet, head over to their website, here!
