Whenever I’m getting ready for friends or family to come over for any reason – a weekend in town, a wine night, Big Little Lies viewings, etc., I try to get my apartment as neat and tidy as possible. And whenever my apartment is in that state, I love to finish it off with fresh flowers. Oftentimes, though, I’m scrambling at the last minute and the fresh flowers just don’t fit into my schedule.
Enter: my new obsession. The Bouqs. For my birthday, one of my besties Carolyn sent over a bundle of flowers from The Bouqs (timed to arrive when I came back from Miami which was just the nicest thing to come home to). I have been a big fan of the brand for a while, but I had never personally experienced the service. Now, I can’t stop telling people about it (in true Annie form).
It’s an online flower delivery service, but so much more than that. Their flowers are cut the same day they’re ordered, so they only cut flowers that have already been sold. The arrangements aren’t cheesy and don’t arrive with a bunch of tacky bows or in ugly vessels. In fact, you have the option to send them in a box vs. a vase (some don’t even have the vase option!) which I actually like so much more.
Finally, they have a subscription service that I’m really considering. There are lots of size and delivery options making it as affordable as you’d like it to be. Personally, if I could have fresh flowers delivered to my door every two weeks, I’d be very happy, but I’m thinking once a month might be a little more responsible 🙂
The flower choices are extensive and all so beautiful. My mom and I were talking about how much we love that there isn’t the cheesy filler you get with standard flower deliveries. Instead, you can pick your recipient’s favorite flowers and send them a beautiful bouquet of them. Right now, I’m reaaaally loving the ones Carolyn sent me (they’re my favorite on the site, so I guess she knows me pretty well?), Poetic, Showstopper, and Hero.
If you want, you can use this link: https://www.thebouqs.com/invite/annieree to get $10 towards your first order – an upgrade to your flowers or a free vase! I’m not sponsored by them or anything (I WISH)…anyone can make one of these links on their site to refer people. Let me know if you get any though! I’d love to see photos of more deliveries.
