Went here with the missus to pick up flowers for a friend.
Being from Finland, where it costs a billion euros for a postage stamp, she thought the flowers were reasonably priced. I thought they were quite expensive, but I'm used to getting flowers from a friend in Motherwell.
We picked up a 'money tree' or something or other.
A friendly wee shop that is a bit cramped inside but well stocked with alot of different flowers to choose from.
A part of me wishes I worked in a florist. This one would do nicely.
I think I must have been a florist in a previous life.
There's something about the buckets filled with different kinds of stems and foliage that makes me swoon. Cleverly arranged gifty bits and pieces certainly help, and a some fully made and wrapped bouquets finish it all off nicely.
Blooms, then, ticked all my boxes. Beatifully designed inside, they have bits of vintage-looking furniture topped off with candles, teddy bears and picture frames as well as a whole wall full of flowers. The walls are painted lime green which, although sounds hideous, is actually very clever. The different coloured flowers stand out wonderfully against it.
Another bonus is that Blooms is not as expensive as you might think! They have some pre-made bunches for as little as £4.99, although their range does stretch all the way up to £25 and £30 bunches. (Guys, they're probably for when you've done something REALLY bad).
All in all, I will be staring into the windows of Blooms wistfully for some time to come. Or, at least, until that time when I come up with some excuse to justify buying myself a huge bouquet.
There's just something about the smell of fresh flowers and earth that makes my senses tingle.
I stopped in Blooms for a gander (couldn't really resist) - it was, after all, coming up to a friends birthday. I popped inside to see what deals, if any, they had on their flowers.
I was surprised to see that decent sized bouquets were from £25+ (most other shops in the area charge around £30+ minimum), and they had a massive selection to choose from - and I was informed by the lovely lady behind the counter that if there was anything that wasnt there, but I knew I wanted, she could order them in and send the flowers on. Excellent.
Unfortunately the flowers were slightly out of my budget, however, I'm keeping Blooms in mind for the next time I need some flowers delivered.
recently ordered flowers for my mother and mother in law from blooms glasgow for mothers day
£32 each plus delivery must say not impressed at all could have bought nicer and bigger bouqets from tesco or morrisons at half the price they looked dead after 2days will never buy from them again i was mortified when i went next day to visit my mum and my mother in laws flowers were the same disgusting
