Autumn Painting Ideas!


October is such a beautiful month for colours, so I’m trying to inspire our 4 year old to come away from finding an electronic device in the house and instead pick up a paintbrush. Here’s what we came up with! Continue reading “Autumn Painting Ideas!”


Flowers to your doorstep!

My Bloom & Wild experience has been blooming marvellous (sorry for the pun!) I always have new flowers in our home ready for the weekend and this occasion I had no fresh flowers so I promptly ordered these beauties at 4pm and they arrived as I was eating my morning porridge on Saturday. What a service! 

The flowers are snugly packed in a recycled letterbox sized box.  The flowers are all cut, in-bud so they’re ready to be put in water. Inside the box they’re carefully wrapped, delicate flowers in little nets and roses trimmed of thorns. There are easy directions to follow to arrange and prepare them for your vase and after a good drink and 24hrs these buds blossom even more. I’m no florist but these blooms are so perfect that it’s pretty difffcult to not arrange them well.

My first flower order smelled lovely and they lasted for 12 days! Afterwards we enjoyed encompassing  some craft activities with the kids using the left over flowers for flower pressing and making potions and perfumes!

With my most recent order I have opted for some seasonal autumnal colours and I’m looking forward to other creations we can come up with to extend the flowers and/or upcycle the cardboard.

And to make it even better Bloom&Wild enclose further offers in your order as well as codes via email, making subsequent orders even more affordable. 

I was sent these flowers as a gift to review, as always my opinions are my own and I have provided an accurate and honest review of this service and product.
