PRINCE GEORGE, BABYBLOOMS AND THE FORGOTTEN PRESENT

For all of you that went, "Oh no, I forgot THE birthday," you share one thing in common with ME: The 'putting off' present - the present you forget to buy because you just have no idea what to buy!

This happened to me the other day when all the press surrounding the birthday of Prince George jogged my travel-lagged and fashion shoot-packed memory. My frightful mistake was that despite the 50 thousand reminders and million opportunities, I just had plain blankly forgotten all about the whole flipping day of birth. UGH. How on earth was I going to make up for it?

Help luckily came through a boyfriend that pointed me in the direction of BabyBlooms' marvelous website. A family run business and the brainchild of mum-of-two Lisa Roberts, who pioneered the concept in the UK as an alternative to sending traditional fresh flowers, which sometimes get left behind at the hospital in the rush to get the baby home.

All of the bouquets are handmade and designed in the UK by BabyBlooms’ team of mums. They consist of the finest quality cotton baby clothes mixed with contemporary silk flowers in a selection of colours: Hydrangea Blue, Vintage Pink and Classic White, in a selection of sizes to suit every budget and new arrival. Beautifully packaged in a stylish box, the parent receives quality clothes for their little one, a bunch of silk flowers they can keep forever and a keepsake box.

Of course by the time my present got sent I already knew it wasn't twins or a girl, but a beautiful baby boy...and my little orange sunflower tee went perfectly with SS14 colour predictions of orange to boot.

Luckily the mother knows my globetrotting ways and was thrilled with such an original present!

Thank you so much BabyBlooms!
