Simple pleasures to chase the January blues away thanks to Bloom & Wild. Win three months of books and flowers in our competition…
Books and blooms. Two things that arguably no human being really needs. But reading and flowers both do one thing – and that’s bring joy, happiness and beauty into our lives. We couldn’t live without books or flowers – both simple pleasures that mean so much.
So we’re very excited to have partnered with Bloom & Wild on a competition to give you the chance to win three months of books and blooms! Yes, three months of our lovely book boxes plus bouquets to enjoy them with from the UK’s top rated flower delivery company. Bloom & Wild’s Flower Team want to put the fun back into flower gifting by designing exciting, on-trend bouquets of fresh flowers.
Bloom & Wild’s seasonal bouquets are designed to fit through the letterbox with all of the flowers freshly cut, each bloom individually netted ‘in-bud’ and hand-packed in our innovative letterbox packaging allowing you to enjoy the full life of cut flowers – from bud to bloom.
Enter the competition here – and read on for some of our favourite literary quotes about flowers…. Good luck!
