Got this chance to send my aunt a birthday bouquet and was totally elated when ABF could let me customized my bouquet. I look back into my photos for flowers that I had ordered before (from other florist) and I found 1 bouquet which I would really love to see again!

Of course I’m not a greedy person, I do not need it to be exactly the same nor be a gigantic bouquet.. Something similar and decent size will do..

ABF responded that they could provide a similar bouquet with roses, carnations & eustomas! This got me even more excited!!!!

Until the day comes….. I was in great disappointment.

I requested for a picture prior sending the bouquet to recipient, none came in. That’s still fine..

When I rec’d the bouquet image from recipient, I was totally dumbed! I changed my clothes took my bag and went to her place immediately to see the actually bouquet!

*below photo from recipient*

How is this similar to what I requested? It’s not colorful, it doesn’t look vibrant, the whole bouquet just feels so dull. Frankly speaking, I’m wouldn’t be happy receiving this bouquet.

 

Tried to take a nicer picture from a different angle but i think I’m already too disappointed.

None of the bouquet picture makes me feel worth the money (yes, although it’s a sponsored bouquet, but I should still have my expectation).. All in all, if you want a customized bouquet, do it at your own risk. Ask me? Never will I do customized bouquet with them again.

To be fair, it’s not like all their flowers/bouquet is such a disappointment.. they have decent one online too! So if you would love to order from them, get whatever that’s online. At least there’s visual for you to see and you won’t get a shock from your customization.

Another thing worth mentioning, the bouquet comes with a lil note to tell you how to care for the flowers and there’s a pack of flower food too (which I didn’t take any pic of those, but u can google it), well that’s something I don’t see from other florist yet..

Will I buy again? Maybe not… until I see another bouquet that really wow me.

Windflower Florist 

Happy Father’s Day guys! Saw this short quote on FB and decided to make it my opening for today!

What I’d give, if i could say “Hello Dad” in the same old way.

To hear his voice and see his smile, to sit with him and chat for a while.

So if your father is still here, cherish him with care, for you’ll never know the heartache until you see his empty chair.

Happy Fathers Day Dad! .. and back to today’s topic!!

Today I’m gonna share with you how much of a love-hate feeling i have for Windflowers Florist!!

With social media, I tell you, it’s so easy to compare and look an almost perfect bouquet for your special someone! Say goodbye (not forever) to old-school flower arrangement! There are now so many IG-worthy florist out there that worth your time to check out their collection!

However, one thing that will make me constantly goes back to them, are not just about the collection. It’s the customer service and of course price!

Chance upon Windflower on Instagram while I was checking out some other stuff and really love the bouquets I saw! Pastel.. Rustic.. Romantic.. Totally something that I will have a second look..

My first bouquet from Windflower was “Daisy-Me-Rolling in Pink“! It was a lil surprise for someone birthday!

Daisy-Me-Rolling in Pink keeping it sweet and pretty.

Rough Dimensions: 45cm (H) x 26cm (W)

Price: $35.00

It’s simple and classic with a decent size ! Most importantly, pocket friendly!!

Actual bouquet when received, looks totally fresh too! That makes me a happy customer already!

When we needed bouquet for office celebration, Windflower came into my mind again! With a higher budget this time, we were able to buy a bigger bouquet – we needed 2!

Wanted to have something similar but still able to tell the difference (1 for a lady & the other for a gentleman) we zoomed down to below:

HARU(春), KIETSU: Hydrangeas are one of our most requested bouquets. Native to the Land of the Rising Sun, these Japanese Shrubs are elegant in their own right. This is Haru, a sweet blend of pink hydrangea and peach baby roses, rustically wrapped in kraft paper to put a smile on your special someone.

Rough Dimensions: 50cm (H) x 30cm (W)

Price: $75.00; SALE $69.90

 

NATSU(夏)KIETSU: Hydrangeas are one of our most requested bouquets. Native to the Land of the Rising Sun, these Japanese Shrubs are elegant in their own right. This is Natsu, a refreshing blend of blue hydrangea with shocking pink baby roses, rustically wrapped in kraft paper to put a smile on your special someone.

Rough Dimensions: 50cm (H) x 30cm (W)

Price: $75.00; SALE $69.90

Before getting this, there were actually a few communication to and fro to decide what I wanted (I’ll skip the details..). All I can say is, Windflower is really professional. They provided advise/opinion and was able to let me do minor customization to the bouquet – even though in the end we didn’t do what I initially wanted. Can’t sense any frustration from our communication! (I would probably rolled a thousand eyes behind the mobile if my customers were like me!)

Actual bouquet that we received, totally BEAUTIFUL and SMELLS so niceeee! I seriously don’t know the names of these flowers but it doesn’t matters because LOVE needs no reason! The flower arrangement were beautifully done – it feels as if every flowers & leaves were just as important in this bouquet!

Together with the above 2 bouquets, I added another bouquet few days before to be delivered together on the same day – I guess 2-3 days before is not really that last min uh..?

 

ENAMOUR: A rustic arrangement of White Rose sprays and White Roses, be enamoured with the quiet beauty this bouquet exudes.

Rough Dimensions: 45cm (H) x 28cm (W)

Price: $55.00

Yeap, this was the additional flowers we bought. Slightly smaller but look very pure/demure.. Actual bouquet was a lil disappointing becuase of some dry petals and browning edges but didn’t affect me much as it still look beautiful overall..!

With such “massive” order in a day, I’m glad that Windflower didn’t screw up my orders! All notes and instructions were well taken care off!! *thumbs up*

With such pleasant experience with them already, how not to order another bouquet!!!

But before the next order, how about a cam-whore moment first!! Who doesn’t love flowers… >_< a beautiful bouquet of flowers somemore!!

Since my cousin’s birthday is around the corner, I decided to plan another surprise for her (I’ll share her GRAND Surprise in another post another day)!

Cotton Candy: Here’s our ever so popular Cotton Fluff bouquet wrapped in the special Pink French Paper! Don’t you think it’s just so lovely?!

Rough Dimensions: 38cm (H) x 20cm (W)

Price: $45.00

Yeap! Here’s her bouquet cotton flowers!! Real bouquet looks pretty true! Ordered something different this time to celebrate her BIG-3!! Again no disappointment at all!! prompt delivery service no hiccups!

I would highly recommend Windflower florist!! Why buy traditional bouquet when you can get IG worthy ones!!

BONUS!! Bought another bouquet earlier this week and OMG it’s totally….

ABC!!! AWESOME! BEAUTIFUL!! CAPTIVATING!!! My friend told me looks like a bridal bouquet!! Hahahaha!! So glad it made her day!!
