I love fresh flowers and would have them in my house every day if I could. To me, flowers bring life and happiness to a room. There is something about a bouquet of flowers that just makes me smile!
Flowers are also my favorite way to let the special people in my life know I am thinking about them. For Christmas each year, my sisters and I send flowers to my mom every month. Of course I like to receive flowers too! So when the people at TheBouqs offered to send flowers for me to review I decided to give them a try.
I did a bit of research before saying yes and loved the fact that The Bouqs flowers come from farms that treat the environment and their workers with care and respect. They cut only what they sell and the flowers are shipped directly to you – fresh. Bouquets start at forty dollars but you can double the number of flowers for only ten dollars more. Two dozen roses for fifty dollars – wow! This price also includes shipping to all parts of the United States. A bonus for me was that there are no vases, chocolates, balloons, etc. – simple and straight forward.
I placed a double order of the “Above and Beyond” bouquet and received an email confirming my order and another letting me know they were on the way. The flowers arrived on time and carefully packaged.
The roses were beautiful and just as pictured. They took a day or two to open up but once they did they were stunning. I followed the directions included in the package – using the included cut flower food and changing the water as directed. Over a week after they arrived I still had a lovely bouquet of flowers on my table. Even my husband was impressed!
So overall my experience with The Bouqs Company was a positive one. The ordering process was simple and easy, there were no hidden fees or extras, the flowers arrived on time and they were beautiful. So with Mother’s Day just around the corner I now know where I will be purchasing my flowers from.
