|This just arrived today!|
|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?|
|I love that the instructions are printed right on the delivery box!|
|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.
|What a beautiful bouquet from The Bouqs.|
I cannot wait for these 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?
