THE BOUQS COMPANY FLOWERS



 In the interest of full disclosure, we were given these flowers in exchange for a review.  We get offered many things to review, most of the time they don't fit in with what we feel you would want to see or we would want to promote. 
But flowers, well heck, we love flowers, who doesn't?  Bring 'em on!

The Bouqs company grows their flowers on the side of a volcano in South America.  This keeps them growing fresh and not cut until just before they are ready to ship to you.  For $40, you get a bouquet, with quite a few to choose from, no vase, no fancy packaging, and the price includes shipping.
A $10 upgrade will get you a bigger bouquet. 

Baby Chicks Bouq
Of course, our first choice in a bouq was the one above.  It is called "Baby Chicks".  They give fun names to their different bouquets.  Their latest is an assortment of roses, called "Red, White and Bouq"...


The box arrived via FedEx, just a few days after ordering...


Here is what ours looked like upon arrival.
They are simply, but carefully packaged...


It comes with a card that reminds the recipient that they are shipped straight from the farm...

Bouq flowers, the "baby chicks" arrangement
Here they are in in a vase on the desk.  We just love yellow flowers, they are so uplifting and 'happy'.  Even in a simple vase, they look impressive!

Bouqs flowers
We also trimmed a few and put them in a smaller vase in the bathroom.
We love to have a little of that sunny color scattered around the house.

There were a few flowers, the smaller ones, that were a bit wilted, but it didn't take away from the beauty.  We hope you'll give them a try but as always, do your own research if you decide to try them out.

Those are pretty. Was this the company that was on Shark Tank? I think I remember them. Thanks!!

I ordered some bouqs flowers and they came kind of badly wilted. I checked with customer service and they fixed it immediately. I thought that was good service. The yellow is so pretty!

OK, I have to comment on that old typewriter in the picture. HOW COOL! And the flowers are so pretty too. But I think I covet the typewriter more, haahah.

Yes, they were on Shark Tank (we love that show) and I don't think they got a deal but it certainly didn't hurt them. We were happy with what we got. We'll see how they hold up and what we order in the future.

Glad to hear that. It's a relatively new company, I know there are always glitches in the beginning. We will definitely try them again and see how consistent things are. We've read a few negative things about them, but again, I hope that's just 'new business' blues that happen on occasion. If they fixed it for you, then that's a good thing. Thanks for the info.

LOL! Observant! Yes, that's an old antique typewriter. It's something my Mom found once upon a time at a garage sale or thrift store or something. We love it. I love the color and the style of the keys. Thanks!!

Thank you for the picture. I've heard mixed things about Bouqs but I too chalk it up to being a new company. I will give them a chance. And as someone above said, your vase of flowers next to the old typewriter is awesome, that typewriter is so neat too.
