If you follow me on social media you will notice that I post a lot of pictures of flowers. My husband sends me bouquets often and I buy them for our house a lot. I think they make a space feel more special and I LOVE the smell. I am sure you can imagine my delight when The Bouqs Co. reached out to me to review a beautiful arrangement from their site. Yes, please!
Before accepting their offer I did some research. While I do enjoy reviewing products, I cant recommend something to you that I don’t believe in or would not use myself in real life. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that they are extremely eco-friendly. They cut only the flowers they sell. They don’t hack off dozens of them and throw them in a freezer somewhere.
They also save energy by shipping directly from the farm (instead of having to keep the flowers refrigerated for weeks like other companies). That results in a lot of energy savings.
Additionally, and this was huge for me – their farms provide living wages, childcare, healthcare and adult education to their workers. I was really impressed with that.
After I decided that I loved Bouqs as a Company I went on their website and looked at their selection and it is gorgeous. You can order any bouquet from their volcano collection and it is shipped to your door from South America for $40 flat. No shipping charges, no processing fees. There are options to add additional flowers or enlarge your arrangement for a bit more money but I did not choose to do that and my plain $40 bouquet was phenomenal. They also have other more intricate bouquets that are a bit more but we are talking $50 not $150.
I don’t know about you guys but I have had a few instances lately where I have been annoyed with the process of ordering flowers online. Every Mother’s Day I wind up spending so much time trying to get a good deal when ordering flowers for our Moms and Grandmothers and then I still spend a few hundred anyway. It really adds up. I HATE when I see a pretty bouquet, think the price is reasonable, click on it and it is tiny unless I upgrade to a much larger price point. I also hate all the hidden fees they tack on at the end. Astronomical shipping and handling, processing fees and service charges can change a decently priced order to something that is out of control. I appreciate that on the Bouqs site I don’t have to deal with that. It was $40 total.
Here are some of the gorgeous bouquets they offer:
After much deliberation I wound up selecting the Desperado Bouquet. It is a beautiful exotic pink rose arrangement with accent flowers. I am a pink girl, so I had to go with that.
How gorgeous are those? For real! I scheduled my delivery date and the box arrived on my doorstep via Federal Express. They were very well packaged and the flowers were in pristine condition.
I took them out, cut them stems on an angle and put them in some water. They were beautiful on that day and they are still sitting on my table (EIGHT DAYS LATER). They’ve opened and each day they get bigger and prettier. Forty dollars (including delivery) was a STEAL for this bouquet. I think since they are shipped directly from the grower they have a longer lifespan because these still seem in their prime while other Companies I have ordered from have sent me flowers that were dead in 48 hours.
Here are a few pictures I took when they first arrived:
Here are a few photos I took last night (7 days after receiving them):
I would not hesitate to recommend The Bouqs.com to a friend or family member. I was really blown away by the Company’s ethics, price and the quality of the flowers I received. They will definitely be my new floral go-to.
