Natural Wonders

Day 1
I've been reviewing arrangements from Teleflora for several months now. Each time I pick out an arrangement, I very anxiously await it's arrival. This month, I was really eager! I picked out something a little different. Teleflora's Natural Wonders Flowers. Everything is in gorgeous varying shades of green!
Day 1
I was drawn to this arrangement because I love succulents. I thought the arrangement was rather interesting and it wasn't something I would normally order. It lacks the bright cheery colors, pastels, and delicate blossoms. Instead, soothing greens helped keep me cool and calm, despite Sam entering his terrible twos again!
Day 2
In this arrangement, you can witness the beauty and bounty of nature come to life! This earthy bouquet features fresh flowers in forest green. They are artfully arranged in a silky brown satin vase accented with succulents! I only wish my arrangement had more!
Day 2
A refreshing mix of flowers including green carnations, echeveria succulents, roses and green chrysanthemums are accented with bupleurum and eucalyptus. I love the brown satin ceramic cylinder vase.
It's a wonderful keepsake and I know I will be using it again.
Day 2
My arrangement was delivered by Hadden's Flowers and Gifts. I didn't have to worry about a box of flowers being dropped off and sitting on my front porch in the blistering heat. I can only imagine what that would do to an arrangement! My arrangement was delivered with a smile! The day I received my arrangement was a little gloomy. There wasn't a lot of natural light. The next morning when I walked through my living room, the first thing I noticed was the brilliance of my Natural Wonders Flowers!
Day 2
All the greens seemed filled with life. Everything was vibrant and beautiful! A stark comparison against the outdoor flowers where everything was turning brown from the harsh sun. While I do miss the bright and cheery colors of my past arrangement, this was a very nice change. This arrangement seems to be lasting longer too, which is always a nice bonus! As far as fragrance, don't expect too much. I had to lean over the roses and eucalyptus in order to smell them. It's there, it's just very subtle!
Day 3
So far, my roses are still perfect! They are pretty tightly wound days after receiving my bouquet! The base of each rose is light green and the edges are a few shades brighter! The carnations are similar! They really stand out. Something I didn't expect in an all green arrangement! Usually, carnations are one of my least favorite flowers. These carnations are really spectacular, and I wouldn't mind seeing them again in another arrangement. The berries compliment the blooms well, and so far, I haven't noticed any on the table. I hate cleaning up after an arrangement. Arrangements should be enjoyed, not create more work!
Day 3
I'm so happy that I chose Teleflora's Natural Wonders Flowers. Next month, I think I'll go with more color, but for now, I'm happy that I went green!
To Disclose: I have a long term relationship with Teleflora. This arrangement was received in order to complete this review. No monetary compensation received and honest opinions were given.
