Flowers and Happiness with a Bonus Offer for You!

Regular readers of my blog will know how much I love fresh flowers. I am not fussy, any kind of flowers or foliage will do, they bring such a fresh happy feel to a space. At certain times of the year, I am surrounded by plenty of foliage, at other times I have to buy flowers to fill the void.






So when a little over a week ago, I was tagged in an Instagram post looking for bloggers to receive a delivery of flowers, I naturally put my hand up happily. Last Thursday, after possible the worst work day ever……


Yep, that’s our chippie Dan, and the contents of his trailer all over the road, both it and his ute are a right off. Our young labourer was also coming down the hill at the time the water truck lost control, and it narrowly missed taking him out. Unfortunately, I think we scared him that much, he’s not coming back to work for us. So a bad week, just got worse. (Don’t forget we are still off alcohol :()

We had just arrived home, when a delivery man rung the door bell. I cannot explain the excitement I felt when he presented me with a box.


I must say, in my lifetime I have been quite spoilt, I have taken delivery of many gorgeous bunches of flowers. This however, was the very first time they had been delivered in a box. What a fantastic way to guarantee their freshness and to prevent the blooms from being squashed.

Within the box, my flowers laid in simple, stunning wrapping, already for me to play with. I am a real fan of receiving a bunch of flowers to then arrange as I like, rather than a bouquet.



My flowers were sent to me by the gorgeous Elli from Flower Haul.

Flower Haul is an online flower shop and flower delivery service. They offer sweet, simple bunches of flowers, which are handpicked fresh from the flower markets each morning. Once the flowers are picked, they’re carefully packaged and delivered directly to your door so they’re as fresh as can possibly be.

After unpacking my flowers, I did a little research on the Flower Haul website and found what has to be my favourite feature. I can subscribe to my chosen flowers on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis. Simply choose your flowers, or colour type and set your frequency and bingo, just like magic, you have your fresh flowers delivered to your door.

Ellie has a special offer for our readers, For the next month Flower Haul is offering 15% discount on all orders. Just pop on over to the Flower Haul website and use the code BUILDERSWIFE15 at the checkout.


Do you deserve a little treat as well? Which is your favourite flower? Do you like bunches or bouquets?

  12. Oh I love flowers. I used to buy myself some every week or fortnight when I worked full time. Just from Woolies or Coles and a bunch that cost less than $20.
