Beautiful flowers from Appleyard Flowers


There is something about flowers, the smell, the colours, they can lift your mood, brighten a room and are one of those gifts I just love to get.  I love it when I get bought flowers and my favourite has to be peonies or vintage roses; both beautiful delicate flowers with a subtle fragrance that just ooze luxury.

Recently I was lucky enough to be asked with Appleyard London who are a luxury London florist, and whose bouquets feature in the likes of luxury lifestyle magazine Harper’s Bazaar.  If you love flowers then you simply have to check out their collection of stunning bouquets, their luxury roses in particular are so beautifully dreamy.  This is a company who are passionate about flowers and it shows.  There are a variety of colours from pretty pastels to vibrant summer hues and if you are looking to send someone a very special bouquet to show how much you care this is definitely a website to stop by for flowers; with next day and timed deliveries available it makes ordering online an absolute breeze.
