The Bouqs Flowers: Review

The Bouqs Flowers Review

There are few things that make me happier than fresh flowers in my home.  So when The Bouqs reached out to share about their flower delivery service, I was thrilled.  A no fuss way to send flowers?  Yes.  Sustainable growing methods that create jobs and quality of life programs for its farmers and communities?  Yes.  Affordable?  Definitely.  The bouquets start at $40 and includes delivery.

I chose the small Cake N’ Cream ranunculus bouquet.  Ranunculus are one of my favorite flowers, so it was hard for me to resist these beautiful blooms.  The website was honest in its description that this was a smaller bouquet that would take time to open, and that the flower colors would vary.  Once I placed my order, selected my delivery date and instructions, The Bouqs Company sent me a confirmation email right away.  I also received an email when the flowers were sent from the source with a FedEx tracking number.  The communication was great.

As the description said, my flowers did arrive as small closed blooms.  However, they immediately smelled heavenly!  I followed the directions on the box for cutting the stems, using the provided flower food, and placed in water.  (Greenery was also included in the bouquet, but I preferred the simplistic beauty of the ranunculus without the addition of the added greenery.)  Within two days the blooms started opening.  These photos were taken on the third day after delivery; Beautifully opened blooms, strong stems, and and a magnificent aroma.

Although my bouquet was gorgeous, my one tiny complaint is that the flower colors were nothing like the website showed.  The description did say the colors would vary, but I was really looking forward to the deeper hued tones showed in the image on the ordering page, as that suits my aesthetic more than the super-romantic pale blooms that I received.  Definitely not a deal-breaker considering the price and quality of the bouquet, but definitely pay attention to the details in the description.
