Chocolate and Flowers – Giveaway #59

Serenata Flowers

Giveaways | 15th May 2015 | By

Who doesn’t feel a little weak at the knees when an unexpected bouquet of flowers arrives on the doorstep? I know, on the rare occasions it’s happened to me, I feel decidedly emotional. When those flowers are accompanied by a box of luscious chocolate truffles, my cup runneth over.

It may not have been unexpected, but I was still delighted to receive an Aztec Sun bouquet from Serenata Flowers recently as well as a box of salted toffee French dusted truffles. I am extremely fond of roses and lilies and the vivid colours in this bouquet have been brightening up my sitting room during some rather grey and dismal days. I can’t help but smile whenever I look at them. As for the chocolate truffles, they were as good as they sound; dark and rich with a sumptuous texture and flakes of sweet and salty toffee embedded within. I may have sampled rather more than was good for me….

Serenata Flowers

Serenata Flowers offer a whole host of beautiful postal bouquets as well as a varied range of food and drink hampers, chocolates, wines and plants.
