Flower Power - Bloom & Wild the #LetterboxFlowers

The Pacifists of the 1960s and 70s were known for chanting ‘flower power’, and although I am not going to get political about the Vietnam war, I wholly agree about the peaceful and calming effects of flowers.

Having spent more time at home than I ever have, whilst on maternity leave, it has become even more important for me to feel a strong sense of wellbeing, when not running around the house after a backward crawling 5-month-old.
Flowers put me in a good mood, period! Not just me, but most people.
I’ve tried on many occasions to try and think of gifts to brighten one’s day that is not flowers and chocolates (see here) but it always comes back to the flowers.

The Eloise in my kitchen
There are flowers in my kitchen, my bedroom, my stairs, really anywhere that can hold a vase, more than likely you will find flowers; so much so that Mr.L on more than one occasion has asked whether we are opening a flower shop.
“No darling of course not, I am not that skilled!” I think, but my goodness...another life.


I discovered Bloom & Wild back in March, just before my first Mother’s day (here) and honestly, since coming into my life, my obsession with flowers has only heightened.

The Florence on my stairs 
Firstly it’s the beauty of the carefully selected, hand-packed fresh flowers. There is the Ophelia, made up of roses, stocks and rosemary; the Chelsea-inspired Florence and now that we are in Peonies season, there has been the Eloise and now the luxurious Belle a mix of peonies and roses.

Positively Instagrammable and Pinterest-worthy is its beauty that I have been on a like-fest when searching for the #LetterboxFlowers.
How beautiful are these here and from one of my favourite mama bloggers Lauren of Hunters and Heels here


Then it’s the fragrance, like a natural Eau de Parfum, the stocks of the Florence added a spicy scent to my dressing table.

The Eloise
Of course, all flowers have THE power, but Peonies such as the Eloise and the Belle are literally nature’s anti-depressants. Scientifically they are proven to enhance one’s mood and reduce stress and anecdotally, from my own perspective, I have never felt BLOOMING better having flowers around the house.

  1. The Flower Delivery guys delivered the flowers the day before to our room, and they were beautiful, and exactly like my picture I had sent. I never got to see the groom's corsage, as it went missing from our hotel's fridge, but the bridal bouquet was stunning, as well as the mothers' and fathers' corsages.
