The Bouqs Review – Holiday Bouq!

The Bouqs

The Bouqs – Frosty

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

The Box

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.

FIrst Look

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.

Getting Ready to Unwrap

Everything was packaging very securely and took some work to unbox!  No flowers were broken or injured so clearly their packing works.

Keeping them Cool

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.

Unwrapped

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.

The Flowers

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!

    I’ve been treating myself to a Bouqs subscription for several months now and I love it. The flowers are always beautiful, fresh and last longer than grocery store bouquets. I get the double and it’s usually so many flowers that I share them with a neighbor. Because I’m a regular subscriber, I get $7.50 off each month which is cheaper than a florist or getting close to the price of a deluxe grocery store bunch. Enjoy, those are beautiful!

    I think it might be the White Calla Lilies. I had company that week and they were wowed. I’m subscribed to the growers choice so it is supposed to be different every month. However, I received the Rise and Shine last month which was perfect for Thanksgiving, and this morning I got the notification for next weeks bouquet and it’s the same one. I wish it was something more Christmassy. I’m not sure I can request a chance this close to the delivery which is next Tuesday. I really like you ranunculas. I hope to get those some time!

    Jennifer Reply:

    They must really like the Rise and Shine huh? Ohhh, I was deciding between this and Calla Lillies. I hope you get the ranunculus soon!

    I ordered these as a gift for my grandparents and they loved them! They arrived on Christmas Eve and they are still doing well, so I am shocked that they have lasted this long!

    Jennifer Reply:

    Ahhh!! Did you get the Ranunculus too? The Bouqs is seriously the best!!!

  12. Renae C. says:

    Yes, they got the Ranunculus and loved them. All their friends were telling them how unique and beautiful they were! Favorite Granddaughter, right here! ;)
