With Valentines day looming I heard that Natasha of Flo and Bella's hampers was promoting Valentines day hampers. I asked her to make one up for me to give to my partner! WOW!! What a sexy exciting hamper it was too! I think my version was quite unique to me, let's just say X rated would describe it very nicely! The best thing was that my partner loved it all, well so did I.! Great fun was had in making use of it during the day. I would highly recommend any one in need of a lovely hamper to suite all occasions to contact Flo and Bella's hampers. Thanks Natasha and her friend Teresa for a wonderful surprise to us both. Now I know how your minds really works lol. -RSnJ
I recently ordered a Christmas Hamper from Flo & Bella's Hampers, as prize for a Christmas draw that I am running. I was impressed with how quick my order was put together but without jeprodisring the quality and style of the hamper. I would thoroughly recommend Flo & Bella's bespoke hampers to anyone looking for that extra special prize or gift. Natasha really does listen to your requirement and nothing is too much trouble. - Louisa Dwyer
I wanted a birthday cake to share with my fellow Tuesday CAP club members. So instead of just buying a mass product one from a supermarket I asked Natasha James of Flow and Bella's tea parties to make me one. Natasha really did make the difference. Making a gorgeous delicious fresh cream and strawberry sponge with little extra decorations to celebrate my big day being on Halloween! Her extra thought and details were very much appreciated as they were a surprise to me when collecting the cake. Then to cap it all, when leaving with the cake she presented me with a huge carrot cake as a present for my birthday. Thank you Natasha for all your hard work, effort and thoughtfulness given. I would recommend any one who wants a cake made to contact Natasha for a first class service who always go the extra mile to make what she dose very special. - Rob Sargent
I ordered a hamper from Natasha as a welcome gift for the new owners, following sale of a property in Cinderford by Ark Estate Agency. The Hamper was all that we and the new property owners could have wished for – beautifully presented and containing an array of luxury and practical goodies to help alleviate the stresses and strains of moving day! We will definitely be using her again. - Julian Symonds, Proprietor, Ark Property Management & Estate Agency
Best Parteez used Flo & Bella to provide one of our customers with a buffet at a children's party. What can I say, they were on time, professional, helpful and provided a fabulous spread. Our customer was delighted! We will be doing more business with Natasha in the future. Highly recommended. - Paul J
