A Better Florist: The Sylvia

This month has been such a beautiful floral explosion of smells and colours! I had the pleasure of getting in contact with A Better Florist a while ago, and got sent one of their popular new arrivals, The Sylvia ($61). The Sylvia boasts colourful flowers reflecting a wild side, with a tiny surprise in its varying selection. I couldn’t wait to check out what I’d receive!

Flower food for The Sylvia flower bouquet from A Better Florist.This packet of flower food came taped to the end of my bouquet. It was my first time encountering flower food, which prolongs the life of your bouquet. The kind folks at A Better Florist sent me this how-to from their flower food manufacturer after I enquired about it.

It was my day off when I received my bouquet, and so I got to spend some time dressing up for a shoot! I also had a dinner thingy to go to later that day, so it all worked out:
