This time of the year usually finds me working on a large scale Christmas tablescape for my entire family (and I have created one for Christmas day) or for a big event (I’ll have to show that one to you after the big Christmas event), but this year I decided to feature a scaled down Christmas tablescape for four. This would also work well for an intimate party of two. Wink. Wink.
Right smack dab in the middle of planning my Christmas tablescape, I was introduced to the Bouqs Company. My immediate reaction was, “What in the world is a Bouqs?” So the “checking them out” process began. And I found out that it’s an online flower service and that Bouqs is short for Bouquets. Bouquets? Flowers? I’m in heaven! Psst: The free shipping took it over the top.
But, wait! How many of you have horror stories of online flower deliveries gone terribly wrong and arriving beat up, broken, dying, the wrong color and the wrong kind? In my extensive research, I found out that the Bouq company’s motto is:
” We source from partners that respect and care for the environment and their employees. Our farms practice sustainable, eco-friendly farming, and we cut only what we sell – so we don’t waste 1 out of every 3 stems like others. Our partners offer competitive, living wages and services like on-site child and healthcare, and adult education.”
I like. I like. And I like that I was able to pick out a free arrangement to be delivered to my door from (get this) mineral rich fields in South America that are fed by pure volcanic snow melt! The volcanic part is kinda romantic to me. Or I could choose to have next day delivery from Cali. I love choices!
Get a load of this statement that I snatched straight from the Bouqs website: “We cut on the day you order and deliver straight from the farm so you get the freshest bouq possible! This means delivery just 2-4 days after cut, vs 10-14 elsewhere. We deliver our Volcano stems from the equator,10,000 feet above sea level, which means one thing: sun. And more sun means more color. These Bouqs are fed by pure volcanic snow melt and mineral-rich, ph-balanced soil. And our California cut flowers come straight from eco-friendly farms on the coast! Bloomin’ sweet surf!”
I’m also in love with the fact that they have an optional concierge service. Doesn’t that make you feel pampered? You must check it out! The one question remains! Did they deliver? I mean, I know they deliver, but did they deliver on all their promises? Is it all it’s hyped up to be? I’ll let you know!
My bouqs just arrived right on schedule and let me tell you, I am very impressed. The flowers are so fresh that they are not all the way open yet. The White Ranunculus with Green Ruscus looks just like the picture.
Can you tell I’m excited? Well, on with the show. Here’s a preview of my Christmas Tablescape (more to come on Monday) featuring my beautiful bouquet from The Bouqs! Keep reading to find out how to enter the giveaway!
