#HeartFeltWithMoonpig

Sunday, February 23, 2020
Earlier this month myself and my mum were invited to a lovely event with Moonpig at Whitworth Locke in Manchester and we were treated to one of the loveliest blogger events I've ever been to. I've used Moonpig for friends birthday cards for years so I was excited to attend the event, especially as I was able to share the experience with my mum - she hasn't been to a blog event before!

We were greeted by the lovely Moonpig team and after a presentation about all of the wonderful products and ethos of Moonpig, we were split into groups and we were able to take part in four different activities throughout the night. I've been to a few blog events and none of them have involved set activities which made them so awkward but having a more structured event made for a very enjoyable and entertaining event.
There were four activities throughout the evening and my favourite had to be flower arranging which is something I've wanted to try for a while and myself and my mum had such an amazing time choosing and arranging the flowers into beautiful bouquets! I opted for a mostly pink bouquet with roses and lots of foliage (I had to use as much eucalyptus as I could as I adore the scent) with a few white chrysanthemums. 

I loved the process and being taught how to arrange the flowers was a great experience and it is definitely something I would love to do again in the future - I've already started looking for flower arranging courses around Manchester (if anyone has any recommendations within the city centre, I'd love to know in the comments section below). I'm so happy with my bouquet and it is still going over two weeks after the event which is very impressive!
There was a photographer throughout the event and I'm so happy with the photos! Apart from friends and family weddings, I've never had my photograph taken professionally and I love the result. I didn't notice the photograph most of the time so I'm surprised at the number of photographs of myself and my mum. There was a photo booth at the event with a green screen so we could choose whatever background we wanted for our mother/daughter photos. 

With the photographs we were then able to use the provided laptops to create our own personalised Mother's Day card on the Moonpig website which was an unexpected but great activity for the event. Even though we made and ordered our Mother's Day cards at around 7pm at the event, the card arrived in the post the very next day which is fantastic! 
For the next event of the evening, we took part in a cocktail making class but as I was driving, I only had a sip or two of the cocktails. The first we made was a French 75 which contains gin, champagne, lemon, sugar syrup and a mint leaf to finish the cocktail. I don't drink very much at all, apart from special occasions but I will definitely be ordering a French 75 at the next event as it was so delicious! 

We also made a few other cocktails which was very fun and my mum had a great time. I think for Mother's Day or her birthday, I'd love to take her to either a cocktail making class or a flower arranging class as she loved both. For the final activity of the night, my mum had a hand massage and I was kindly given a gift at the end of the event which was a generous treat to finish such a fantastic blogger event. I'm usually so anxious about events that I always turn them down but I'm so glad to went to this one.
I received the *Penny Post Letter Box Hamper (17.99) which is a fantastic gift idea! It contains chocolates, tea, hot chocolate and pampering goodies including lip balm, emery boards and a hand cream so I think it would make a great Mother's Day gift! There are quite a few letterbox gifts to choose from on Moonpig for a range of gift recipients and budgets as well as letterbox flowers. 

Moonpig is the ideal place to find Mother's Day gift as well as beautiful personalised cards! They are focused to creating heartfelt moments with their special cards that everyone loves. The process of creating their cards and ordering is so easy (I made a birthday card, with my own money, for my auntie a few days ago with Moonpig and it was so quick). Making a personalised card and ordering special gifts is so quick and convenient with Moonpig and there are so many options to choose from, including flowers which something I didn't know Moonpig offered. If you're looking for a thoughtful gift or a special personalised card, look no further than Moonpig. 

Have you made a card or ordered a gift on Moonpig?
