Hi lovelies! A few weeks ago I was approached by an online florist FreshFlowers.com.au to trial and review their products. I was delighted to find out that they deliver flowers to Melbourne, Perth, and other metropolitan areas Australia wide. I adore flowers so was pretty excited to try them out.
Choosing the flowers I wanted was undoubtedly the most difficult part of doing this review- everything on their website looked gorgeous and I changed my mind multiple times over what I wanted to review. The website is incredibly user friendly, allowing the user to filter by occasion, price, flower and style. Most of their flowers are in the $50 to $70 range, although there are cheaper options available. The website also lets you enter your post code to check if they deliver to your area. As I stay further out from Perth city, Fresh Flowers* do not deliver to my area but I was able to get the flowers delivered to a family member who works at Curtin University. Weekday deliveries are made to business addresses by 5pm and to residential addresses by 7pm and incur a standard delivery fee of $10.
I eventually decided on ‘Roses – Mini Kisses’ which retails for $69.95. Placing the order on their website was super easy, I liked that I could order as a guest without registering. That being said, signing up and being a member will get you a sweet 10% off your first order. Ordering the flowers only took about two minutes, I filled in my name, the person I was delivering the flowers to (address and details) and the message that I wanted on the card. I had the option of leaving special instructions in case the person that the flowers were being delivered to was unavailable. Fresh Flowers allow you to arrange for same day delivery for the major cities, as long as you order before 2pm on a weekday or 10am on a Saturday (they don’t deliver on Sundays and public holidays). You can also nominate what day you want it delivered if you don’t want same day delivery.
My flowers were delivered on a Friday afternoon at around 2 pm, the flowers were left at reception (as instructed if the person being delivered to was away). I was super impressed with the roses received, the packaging was beautiful and the color was a vibrant red. Most of the roses looked fresh and some of the buds were unopened, however there was also a few in the bouquet that looked slightly wilted/brown around the edges. This was only minor though, so didn’t bother me too much.
I took care of my flowers according to the instructions on the Fresh Flowers website and they still looked gorgeous for about four days before the petals started shedding.
Overall, I was incredibly impressed with the service from FreshFlowers. The bouquet was beautifully presented and delivered in a courteous manner. This is definitely a service that I would recommend for birthdays and other special occasions. If you’re placing an order, you can also use discount code “FFCARD” to receive 20% off for a limited time 🙂
Until next time 🙂
