Fresh-cut flowers always brighten my day. And these Flowers from the Gourmet Monthly Clubs “Flower of the Month Club” did just that…

A stunning arrangement of hot pink and pale pink orchids

According to the notes that accompanied these flowers, orchids are a key ingredient in love potions and the Greeks used orchids as an aphrodisiac! In any case, they sure are beautiful.

The flowers were delivered via Fed Ex Priority Overnight. They were packaged nicely in a green flower box.

A look at the contents inside

This delivery contained 5 stems of small hot pink orchids, 1 stem of large pale pink orchids, a generous amount of green leaves for arranging, and 2 packs of food. You can see that each flower has its own watering tube to keep it fresh and moist.

If you send this to someone as a gift, make sure that they have a flower vase on hand (most women do) because these flowers are not shipped with a container. I was a little disappointed to find that several new buds had fallen off the stems. But it didn’t seem to affect the end result.

I had fun arranging the flowers. I prefer using only a few green leaves to keep the focus on the flowers. So I ended up throwing out some of the extra greenery. Even though I’m not the best flower arranger, the end result is stunning! Don’t you agree???

The accompanying newsletter that Gourmet Monthly Clubs provides with all of its Gift of the Month Clubs was high quality and professional as always. They also included a supplement on “How to revive and lengthen the life of your bouquet” that was helpful.
