There isn’t much that makes me smile like fresh flowers. There is something about them that makes your heart melt. Kristi and I like to have fresh flowers around the house. It pulls everything together so nicely and adds that touch of freshness to the space.
There are TONS of online companies to send flowers. But let’s be honest, some of them leave me feeling like the quality or tastefulness might be lacking. Then, I am nervous until the recipient finally says, “the flowers are pretty!” I came across this company called The Bouqs Co. They are another flower delivery service, but with a couple small differences that I really loved.
1. The Choices
Sometimes you jump on to those flower sites and there are 154 pages of flowers to send to your mom for Mother’s Day and you are so overwhelmed.
The Bouqs Co has just the right amount so you still have options, but you aren’t sifting through the weeds (pun intended!) to find something you love.
Here are some on the site right now!
Aren’t they beautiful?
The Bouqs Co is a sustainable, and eco-friendly flower sourcing company. The flowers actually come from a volcano. (yep, you read that right!)
From The Bouqs Co website,
“We cut only what we sell. Other providers source from a supply chain that sees 1 in 3 stems wasted. Across hundreds of thousands of bouquets a year, that’s a lot of wasted land, resources, labor and fuel. We cut only when you order, so we avoid the waste.
We also save energy through our direct-from-the-farm supply chain. The standard supply chain must keep stems cold for up to 2 weeks, meaning hundreds of hours of refrigeration and the associated energy use. We use cold storage for only 4 days from the Volcano, and not at all from California, resulting in a lot of energy savings.
Finally, our farms provide living wages, childcare, healthcare and adult education. And our growing business supports farm communities, so you can feel good about shopping The Bouqs Company’s flowers.”
I have never seen (although, it may exist) a service like this before. The Bouqs Co. lets you customize a calendar to send flowers regularly, on a certain date aka. Birthday, anniversary etc. and you get a discount for scheduling it regularly.
They also post real life photos of customers who have received flowers. Under each product description it shows the company photos and also customer photos- which helps see exactly what you are getting. I really loved this feature. It helped me pick my order.
Here is my first order:
I chose the XOXO. 1. because of Gossip Girl and 2. because I like signing off that haha, logical.
I didn’t get a card addressed to myself, but this was taped into the inside of the box.
After reading the instructions above, here is how it turned out!
All girls love flowers, even Miss Winston. She was getting rather protective of these flowers ha! Although, this is her bird watching chair.
Overall, I was really happy with the flowers and think I will be signing up to get them on a regular basis. It’s so quick and easy. They are so beautiful!
Check out The Bouqs Co. and use them next time you are in need of fresh flowers. I don’t think you will be disappointed 🙂
Love, Rachel xo
