Teleflora has a wide range of holiday bouquets that are ready to send to anyone on your list, near or far. These special bouquets come with a little something extra that will last long after the flowers themselves are just a fond memory.
Teleflora's Classic Pearl Ornament
I was sent an arrangement at no cost from my local Teleflora florist for review purposes. The one I chose is the Classic Pearl Ornament, which comes in a pearlized keepsake jar with a lid.
The flowers arrived expertly wrapped against the cold, with the box snuggly packed in cardboard and the flowers covered with clear plastic. The first thing I noticed when I opened it was the scent - initially it was pine and then the classic rose scent snuck up behind it. The flowers were gorgeous - fresh and colorful. The colors are of course classic Christmas shades.
The ornament jar is really pretty, with a Christmas tree motif on the front studded with little "gemstones."
The standout elements of the bouquet itself are:
- Red roses
- Red carnations
- Pine sprigs
- Pearlized orb picks,
And of course, the lid for the jar becomes part of the display. There are other springs and greenery as well, making for a truly festive arrangement.
The only potential downside is the price, as these seasonal arrangements can get expensive fairly quickly. This one starts at $59.95 for the one I received, and you can size it up to a premium version for $79.95. Once you add in delivery fees, it can be pricey.
Long-Lasting Holiday Beauty
One thing that I really wanted to see was how long this bouquet would remain as lovely as it was when it arrived. After nearly a week, there is only a little bit of darkening on the edges of one of the rose petals near the top:
I've been enjoying these flowers all week long, and they still smell great too. If you are considering sending flowers to someone this holiday season or are looking for a fantastic host/hostess gift, consider this or one of Teleflora's other seasonal offerings.
