It may be a complete blogger cliché but I really love peonies. They look so subtle to begin with but my favourite is when they burst into huge blossoms of colour and scent. Debenhams flowers sent me this beautiful peony bouquet to review and I couldn't be happier with them. I got eleven flowers, plus greenery in my bouquet and the scent is to die for. Getting a flower delivery is super fun and having a bright purple box arrive at work certainly brightened up my Friday! Fresh flowers are one of those wonderful luxuries that I always try and save up for, there really is nothing nicer than having a vase full of flowers to brighten up a room and they are guaranteed to put a smile on my face.
They also come with a useful booklet that tells you how to take care of the flowers- very useful if you are a notorious plant-killer like me!
I have been lucky enough to inherit a lot of glassware from various friends and family members but none of my vases were quite right. Luckily Waitrose is just a stone's throw away from our flat and I picked up this lovely vase instore for a mere £8. This one on the John Lewis website is near identical although I don't know why it is more than twice the price!
I mean, how could you not love them? They are just so unashamedly vibrant!
Subtle they ain't but I can't resist the millions of layers of petals!

P.S. Debenhams Flowers sent me these peonies to review but if I didn't love them, I wouldn't feature them. If this has tempted you to order some next day flowers, use code DFBLOG25 to get 25% off any bouquet except the flowers by post range :)
