Every Saturday morning, I wake up way before everyone else in our home. I get my shoes, grab the car keys and drive down the country lane that takes me to my favourite weekend hangout – the flower market. I fill my arms with flowers, have a chat with the people that work there, and come home happy that our lunch table will look pretty for the rest of the week. I love, love, love flowers.
Yesterday there was a knock at the door and unusually for us and our poor postmen, we weren’t expecting anything at all. I was handed a big brown flower box addressed to me and I took it, confused as it’s not my birthday, anniversary or anything else that I might like flowers for – and so I peeped inside to find not just beautiful, heavenly scented flowers but DISNEY flowers. Beauty and the Beast flowers from Flowersdirect! It was such a lovely surprise and to celebrate the release of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast DVD [which has not gone unnoticed by the boys, who are expecting to be watching it this weekend for movie night] and the bouquet is cleverly themed to the Belle’s dress.The Beauty and the Beast flowers are yellow in hue to celebrate Belle’s iconic dress in the ballroom dance scene – the cymbodium [that’s orchid to you and me] gives shape to the bouquet and the solidago [now I know the name of that flower too!] are to emulate the delicate fabric of her ballgown. They smell so beautifully – none of the blooms overpowers the other and the scent blends together to make our living room so summery.I fell in love with the flowers immediately – not just because they’re so exquisite, but because the exact shade of my wedding orchids feature in the bouquet! It made me think of our own Disney wedding [which I still have to finish blogging – the goal is by my tenth anniversary, haha] and my little Disney loving heart is just so delighted to be treated to something so special. I’m sat here writing next to the enormous bouquet – and so here are a few photos for you to have a look at! This isn’t a sponsored post – I’m posting because I know SO many Disney ladies in my life who would LOVE some Disney themed flowers, gentlemen! Head over the Flowersdirect because they’re just so lovely – and where else can you get such an amazing Disney treat for grown ups these days?!
Thank you Flowersdirect – I absolutely adore them.
