The 22nd February was a day full of celebrations, when my sister gave birth to a beautiful 7lbs 7oz baby boy, one week before her due date of the 29th February 2012.
I had been contemplating for a while on what to get her, I wanted it to be a special gift, something for both her and the baby, a gift she would always remember.
A few weeks before the birth I discovered BabyBlooms a great UK brand who offered a selection of beautiful bouquets with a difference.
These are not just any beautiful put together bouquet, made up of flowers that despite their beauty, will eventually wilt and die, Babyblooms, can be treasured forever!
Each one of BabyBlooms Bouquets have been made up of both stunning silk flowers and a selection of baby garments that have been placed in the bouquet as to resemble delicate roses. These really do look fantastic and on visiting the website for the first time, I actually didn’t notice that some of the flowers within the Bouquets were in fact baby garments carefully rolled into rose buds.
I was lucky enough to be asked to review the “Small Blue Bouquet” and couldn’t wait for its arrival so that I could surprise my sister in the hope of cheering her up a little (no mother to be likes them drawn out, last few days, waiting around for a baby to make its appearance)!
I, however didn’t have to wait long at all! BabyBlooms provided a swift delivery of a very well presented bouquet.
Unable to wait them last few weeks for this little bubba to make his appearance, I presented my sister with her surprise that same afternoon. The small blue bouquet was beautifully concealed in a pretty presentation box with personalised card and the lovely addition of a big blue ribbon.
To say she loved it would be an understatement, in fact everybody loved it, including me! The bouquet itself had been so beautifully put together with silk foliage, velvet leaves, freesias and stunning delicate silk roses, all held together with pretty organza and a silk cream ribbon. It was so pretty my sister and myself felt a little wrong in removing the clothing garments that were so well presented to resemble roses. On unravelling the items we were presented with a cute baby reversible hat and matching mittens, plus five pairs of tiny blue socks.
This is a truly a lovely gift to give to someone special to celebrate the birth of a new baby. The bouquet was all it had promised to be, yet so much more! The images on the Babybloom’s website really do look great, however, these are so much more stunning in real life. I’d defiantly use them again as I’d have the comfort of knowing I was giving someone I care about a really beautiful gift.
The small blue bouquet can be brought for £26 but prices do vary depending on the size and contents of the bouquet (these can even be made up of babygrows) designs also come in a selection of colours for both boy and girl (natural colours are also availably in case those expecting the baby have not discovered the babies sex)!
Another gift I have planed, is one with a very personal touch, a hand decorated and filled, ‘Mother & Baby’ basket, finished in beautiful satin blue check ribbon. I’m hoping to have it finished later on today, and I’ll be sure to pin a picture on Pinterest of my creation (given it comes out as expected that is)!
Lastly, how can I not finish with a picture of my beautiful nephew ‘Riley’ at not even a full day old! Just looking at him made me want to suggest babies to the other half, though thinking back to my last pregnancy, a totally horrid one, plus remembering how quick they grow up, I quickly snap out of it and return to a non broody state of well-being. (Below my daughter giving new bubba a longed for hug)!
