I can’t always afford to have fresh flowers in the house – especially my favorites, roses. We had rose bushes at the old house, but the new house doesn’t have any flowers and since I am known to be a brown thumb, I haven’t even attempted to plant them. And roses are so expensive to have delivered, aren’t they?
Bouqs.com contacted me and asked if I wanted to try their fresh cut flower delivery service. How could I say no?
Bouqs.com cuts their flowers on the day you order them, and deliver straight from the farm. The farm is located near the equator, on the edge of a volcano, 10,000 feet above sea level.
Bouqs.com farms practice sustainable, eco-friendly farming, and they cut only what they sell – so they don’t waste 1 out of every 3 stems like others.
Bouqs.com partners offer competitive, living wages and services like on-site child and healthcare, and adult education.
And get this – volcano bouquets cost only $40 with free shipping!!
I ordered the Original version (one dozen) of the Dawn orange roses. Since the flowers come from near the equator, you need to plan at least six days lead time into your delivery. My bouquet was personally delivered by my Fed Ex driver (these bouquets require a signature). Here’s what the box looked like:
Today, as I am writing this, it is about ten days since the delivery and even though I have had to remove a couple of roses, the rest are still going strong, with just a little more water added to the vase.
I am VERY impressed with Bouqs.com. The flowers are gorgeous and their staying power is AMAZING!! The value can’t be beat!!
Right now, in addition to their already low price, Bouqs.com is offering their Sunflower Special. Order two Sunflower Bouqs and get a $15 credit good towards your next Bouqs order!!
I received a complimentary Bouqs.com bouquet for the purpose of review. All opinions are 100% my own.
