The Bouq’s Company Experience: Cake N’ Cream!

The Bouq Company The Bouq Company

Times have certainly changed. I never thought that one day I’d be ordering a bouquet of flowers from a volcano to be delivered straight to my door. They are a classic gift that will live on forever. Sure, they may change with the styles, but a flower is a flower and receiving them makes us happy. Flower bouquets date back all the way to 2500 BC. That’s one trend that will never go out of style! Flowers are at: weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, gardens, and funerals; there is no escaping them.

When The Bouqs Company reached out to me to try their flower service, I was intrigued.. I’m a pro online bouquet buyer; I’ve done all the edible arrangements too. I ended up paying way too much by the end of the checkout with all the extra shipping, delivery fees, teddy bears and chocolate additives. I find it cheaper to cut my own flowers and deliver them myself.

When I saw that Bouqs.com had a flat rate price, and no extra-added fees, I was all over that!

The buying process is easy. The worst part is trying to decide which Bouq to send as they are all very unique and exotic. Good luck trying to find anything this pretty for the price at a local florist. The last bouquet I bought was $60 for a typical dozen of white roses.

After spending some time browsing their collection, I chose the “CAKE N CREAM” bouquet. I’m a very colorful person. The Cake n Cream was a colorful bouquet with mixed ranunculus. The ranunculus is a smaller bloom that takes a little extra time to open. The box came with directions to follow for the blooming and preserving process.

As soon as I ordered the bouquet, the flowers were cut the same day and shipped the next!

Instruction: Fill Vase, Gently Remove, Cut Stems, Pour and Feed, & Add Water!

BEFORE & AFTER!

This is what the bouquet looked like three days later! They were full, colorful, and beautiful! It’s hard to believe that the bouquet above was delivered in a box! It looks much better than the typical roses and carnations that come in every generic floral bouquet.

I like that I know exactly where these flowers came from. Who knows where your florist gets their flowers, and what kind of working conditions they come from?

“All of The Bouqs Company’s flowers are grown at sustainable, eco-friendly farms that follow a strict responsible farming practices, and are 3rd party certified by Veriflora and The Rainforest Alliance.”

The Bouq Company

The great thing about flowers is that you don’t have to have any reason to receive or send them. Normal floral shops sensor their bouquets around holidays or birthdays. The Bouqs Company’s flowers are very neutral and fit any occasion, even if there is none!

The Bouq Company

Every time I glanced over at my flowers, it blew my mind that days ago they were growing on the side of an active volcano in Ecuador. Why in the world would they choose flowers from the side of a volcano? That’s where you’ll find the highest quality of flowers because of the mineral rich soil, and sunshine!

Some of my other favorite Bouq‘s from their collection are: You Rock, Cosmo, and Dragonfly!

Overall, I was very impressed with The Bouqs Company. They have great customer service, fast delivery, and the quality of the flowers were on point. I’m very excited about their company, and will be a forever customer!

    Those flowers are amazing! I love your desk space it is so classy but unique and nicely laid out. Do you live with your family or do you have your own place? If not it seems cramped to have your workspace in the same room as your sleep space. It is gorgeous but what if you moved it to an extra room or the side of the family room area? Will you post some pics of the rest of your place and how you decorate/furnish it? You always show your bedroom but never the other rooms which in my opinion are even harder to decorate to look nice. It’s hard to do and I need some inspiration plus I like your style!

    These flowers are gorgeous! I love the colors- the bouquet goes so well on your desk! Do you mind explaining what you mean by local shops censoring bouquets? I always like to support local business if I can but I was curious what you meant by that line.

    So is Bouq’s based in Ecuador if they are able to cut your flowers off the side of a volcano the same day you ordered them?

    Growing up I loved going to the farmers’ market with my mother to pick out a lovely new bouquet of seasonal flowers every week! These flowers are stunning! It’s a great way to brighten things up a little and to complement simple interior design!

      Totally agree. I bought a bouquet from them, and their website says you get the flowers 2-4 days after they are cut. That just isn’t so, when they are coming from Ecuador! Mine were delivered 7 days after they were shipping.

      For the price, I can go to my local grocery store and get flowers just as nice, get more of them, and they will most likely stay fresher longer.

    I think the flowers are absolutely beautiful. I, however, have an issue with the fact that they tout themselves as eco-friendly. How in the world is it “eco-friendly” to ship a bouquet of flowers by plane AND car across two continents? I would rather have the “generic” flower shop done the street. Support Local!

    I just used Bouqs for the first time to send my sister sunflowers for her birthday next week. Thanks for posting photos of how the box arrived… I was curious what she would actually receive. Glad to hear they have a great reputation… I definitely think I’d use them again!

    My husband got me a bouquet from here for my birthday and they were beautiful! They lasted for over two weeks and I was even able to keep the succulent for my own garden from the bouquet. And it’s always a nice surprise when a box shows up at work or home and it ends up being flowers. 🙂
