Red, White, and Blue Roses! #Sponsored #BouqLove

Disclosure: I received a bouquet of beautiful red, white, and blue roses from The Bouqs to help facilitate my review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own. Usually I do not have affiliate posts, but for this campaign I will receive a small fee for anyone who places an actual order from a link on my page.


This just arrived today!
Today the delivery man showed up on my doorstep with a long box from The Bouqs Company (as seen on Shark Tank, O! Oprah Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, E!, The Today Show, and PopSugar), and boy was I excited. I already knew what was going to be inside, and that was one dozen red, white, and blue roses to help bring in the 4th of July with style!

The Bouqs bouquet we received.
It was very carefully wrapped in  cardboard and cellophane, and secured to the shipping box.

My first concern was packaging. When you're having flowers delivered, it is of the utmost importance that they be kept intact, otherwise there is no point at all in spending the money for them. A lot of shifting occurs during shipping & handling, so that packaging has to be sublime. If the package we received is any indication, The Bouqs has got it covered. Inside of the sturdy cardboard box was a bouquet of flowers very carefully wrapped in cardboard and then cellophane. The stems were banded together, and the cardboard wrapping was secured to the box with staples and a secure plastic tie. In short, those flowers were not going anywhere (and that's a good thing).

Who doesn't love to get long-stemmed roses delivered?
The second thing I was concerned about was the freshness of the flowers.

I love that the instructions are printed right on the delivery box!
Per the instructions on the box (and I love that they are printed very clearly on the box), I took them right out of the packaging and got to work on getting them arranged.

We cut off the stem tips to help the flowers absorb water.
We actually ended up clipping them once again so they would be even in the vase.
Once the stems were cut, my curious (flower-loving) little one and I put the water and flower food into a vase, and then took great care to remove any blemished leaves.

What a beautiful bouquet from The Bouqs.
I cannot wait for these to open up and bloom!
What a beautiful bouquet this is going to be. I cannot wait for these beauties to open up and bloom.

The Bouqs is different from other flower shops because it works under a process that takes out the middle man completely. In owning their own flower farm, with soil rich from the active volcano it is next to, each bouquet is shipped directly to your door for a flat fee of $40 (with free shipping). I love the 4th of July Flowers - Red, White, and Bouq, and think they are going to be perfect to help ring in Independence Day. They would also make a great gift for someone who is hosting a celebration/BBQ/dinner at their home.

There are many different types and colors of flower bouquets for sale by The Bouqs. You can check out their website here. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.  Won't you send a little #BouqLove today?

I first saw them on Shark Tank.The Bouqs really does a great job with their flowers. I got a dozen Desperado roses from for my wife's birthday. http://theguycornernyc.com/2014/06/17/the-bouqs-co-the-review/#more-2359

Those are simply gorgeous! I just put up my 4th of July decor today, but I didn't have any cool flowers like that to display. I am thinking those would look great in my dining room now :)

The color of those roses is amazing. What else is amazing is the lovely way they looked after being shipped. And the $40 is so much better than what our local florists charge. Good going.
