When the folks over at The Bouqs contacted me and asked if I’d want to review another Bouq, I couldn’t say yes fast enough. The Bouqs, in case you aren’t familiar, deliver farm fresh flowers straight to your door. This means that you’ll receive the flowers 2-4 days after they are cut, instead of the 10-14 days you’d get with traditional flower deliver services. They offer both a monthly subscription service (I dream of B getting this for me) and one time deliveries.
The Bouqs ships via FedEx directly from South America. It took *maybe* 4 days for my box to arrive, which is quite remarkable considering that it cleared customs and traveled thousands of miles in the time that some of my packages take to move one state to the next. The Bouqs used to require signature delivery but it appears that this is no longer the case as my box was just sitting outside my door yesterday.
I opted for the double “Frosty” bouq which is a 16 white ranunculus with green ruscus and is priced at $50. The original Bouq is $40 and includes 8 ranunculus, so clearly the double Bouq is the way to go on this one. In comparison an original rose bouq includes a dozen roses, while a double bouq of roses contains two dozen flowers. The number of flowers you will receive varies on the type of flowers selected, but it is all clearly spelled out on the website.
Everything was packaging very securely and took some work to unbox! No flowers were broken or injured so clearly their packing works.
The stems are wrapped in plastic and soaked in water to make sure they stay perfectly fresh. The stems you see to the right that are the greens in the box and are not wrapped.
How gorgeous are these? Seriously. I picked white flowers on purpose this time because they were not only wintery, but also because I wanted to really see the quality of them. These are snow white. No brown spots, dead leaves, etc.
I took this picture of the flowers yesterday after I arranged them all (I didn’t use all of the greens) and they were still opening up. The picture from the top is this morning when opened up even more. I cannot wait to see what they are going to look like in a few days. I predict they will be even more stunning and I will add a picture if I remember. With my last Bouq I did a day-to-day post on what my roses (I picked The Killer) looked like every morning and as you can see here, they lasted FOREVER!
