Fresh flowers from The Bouqs Company

It’s not a secret that I love fresh flowers. Even when I was in college, and money was really tight, I’d splurge on a weekly bouquet to brighten up my tiny apartment. Since then, I’ve kept the tradition alive and adore fresh blooms around the house. They’re an instant way to add a bit of cheeriness to a space, and a fun way to celebrate. When The Bouqs Company sent these roses the week after we were home from the hospital, it definitely brought a smile to my face.

Gorgeous volcano roses to celebrate miss Penelope Rose. 🙂

(It’s hard to tell from the photos, but these roses were HUGE. They also lasted for almost 2 weeks!)

Here’s a little bit about The Bouqs company:

The flowers are grown on the side of an active volcano in Ecuador with lots of sunshine and mineral rich soil. Their farms are sustainable and eco-friendly, and follow strict responsible farming practices. The flowers aren’t stored in warehouses, but are cut from the farms when you order and shipped the next day, so they arrive super fresh.

They arrive gently packaged in a box,


you unwrap, cut the stems under running water,


place in a vase along with water and flower food,

 and enjoy. 🙂

They also offered to send a bouquet to one of my friends, so I was thrilled to have volcano roses delivered to Whitney’s house. I’m lucky to have her among our amazing friends here in San Diego, and I wanted to send a “thank you” for the meals and snacks she’s brought over, along with taking Liv to the park during that first very sleepy week.

These bouquets would also make perfect holiday gifts. I love to send holiday arrangements to my nana and stepmom, and have found that sometimes you order flowers and they don’t arrive exactly as pictured. With the Bouqs Company, what you see is what you get, and they have some incredible holiday arrangements to choose from. 

Here are some of my faves! I’ll definitely be surprising relatives with some bouquets from this holiday season. If you’d like to do the same, be sure to use the code GETBLOOMS for 20% off.

What’s your favorite flower to have around the house? I’m partial to bi-color roses.

    How fun! I keep holding out for a hot man to buy me flowers weekly, but it hasn’t happened yet. Maybe I need to start buying them for myself and the man will follow? lol…

    So much pretty!

    We don’t have flowers super regularly in the house, but usually once every couple months Mr. Science will bring me a bouquet just because 🙂 Since he’s a plant guy, he always chooses the most interesting-looking flowers or colors. I love traditional flowers but it’s so fun to have a bouquet of really unique ones in the house!

    I remember seeing the bouqs on shark tank! The Christmas sweater arrangement is pretty, I think my Gma would like that 🙂 I love roses, but my ultimate favorite are dahlias!

    I’ve used Bouqs twice now and have LOVED the service. You can order flowers to be delivered the next day and the variety is incredible. I sent some to my mom and my aunt and they both were so pleased with the size of the flowers and how long they lasted. I just may need to use your coupon code to send myself some 😉

    That Dreidel bouquet is gorgeous! I don’t usually have flowers in the house because they die so quickly, but I am a big fan of yellow roses. 🙂

    So pretty! I love lilies and lavender roses 🙂

    Honestly I ordered these when I saw them on Shark Tank…they arrived to my mother wilted and didn’t last long at all. I was not impressed.

    I love all flowers, but if I had to pick one, I’d probably choose hydrangeas.

  13. Kim on December 10, 2015 at 8:05 am

    Do the flowers come with a vase?
