Beautiful Bouquets at The Bouqs Company – Frugal Novice

Beautiful Bouquets at The Bouqs Company

Note: I received credit toward a bouquet to facilitate my review. All opinions are honest and are entirely my own. 

I love receiving flowers, and I love gifting them, too, so reviewing a bouquet from The Bouqs Company for my mom’s birthday was a no-brainer for me. I read up on the company before working with them and was impressed to learn they source from farms that practice responsible, sustainable farming.

I decided to go with the Hot Lava bouquet, because I loved the bright, cheery colors of the yellow and hot pink. I found that their pricing was really reasonable, so I ended up getting three dozen roses (it was my mom’s 60th birthday, after all – that’s a big deal!). I was really impressed with how well the flowers were packaged. They were secured to the box so they wouldn’t get jostled around, and this corrugated cardboard was protecting all the blooms. Each one arrived in perfect condition!

So pretty! I was running out of room in the vase, but you can see the vibrant colors and the great shape the flowers were in.

The roses arrived long-stemmed and I did trim them and remove leaves to prepare them for use in the vase, which didn’t take too long. My mom was thrilled with her flowers and even six days later they still looked great:

The Bouqs Company has high-quality products and obviously take great care in their service, too. I was really impressed and will order from them again in the future, for sure. Don’t forget to check out their concierge service, too – you can schedule deliveries ahead of time and save up to 25%!

    Those are gorgeous. I love how they come wrapped in cardboard to protect them. I’ve gotten flowers by mail in the past and they were squished.

  • Catherine S February 18, 2015 at 4:39 pm

    The flowers are really pretty. I will check them out next time I am going to send flowers to my mom.

  • Marybeth Hamilton February 18, 2015 at 4:41 pm

    Wow. I seriously wasn’t expecting those flowers to look SO good. They’re gorgeous!

  • Pam February 18, 2015 at 5:21 pm

    Those roses look so fresh! So many flower deliveries don’t look that great, but these are beautiful.

  • Jaime February 18, 2015 at 5:32 pm

    The roses look amazing! I love having fresh flowers year-round. They help my mood especially in winter!

  • Robin Rue (@massholemommy) February 18, 2015 at 5:40 pm

    I saw them on Shark Tank They certainly do send out pretty arrangements!

  • Amy @ Marvelous Mommy February 18, 2015 at 5:50 pm

    Ooh, such pretty roses! I bet your mom loved them!

  • Stephanie February 18, 2015 at 5:51 pm

    Those are beautiful! I always want to send flowers but am often afraid they’ll be a mess when they get there. I think I’ll take a look at this company for Mother’s Day!

  • Liz Mays February 18, 2015 at 6:19 pm

    Wow those flowers look beautiful! It’s good to know if you order from Bouqs, your flowers will arrive in great condition!

  • Shop with Me Mama (Kim) February 18, 2015 at 6:47 pm

    Whoa, now those are some bright and beautiful looking roses! Nice and fresh looking too! Lucky girl you!

  • aimee fauci February 18, 2015 at 7:29 pm

    This is my favorite flower company! They are so reliable and their prices are amazing. In addition they always have awesome specials!

  • Sara P. (@SensiblySara) February 18, 2015 at 9:11 pm

    The color of those roses is just gorgeous! I love getting flowers, but my cats EAT them so my husband doesn’t buy them very often anymore.

  • Candy O. February 18, 2015 at 9:45 pm

    What a beautiful bouquet. I love getting fresh flowers.

  • Jeanine February 19, 2015 at 8:46 am

    Wow how beautiful! I haven’t heard of this company before. But those are some good looking flowers. So pretty.

  • Christie February 19, 2015 at 9:24 am

    Wow, each flower looks perfection! I love yello0w roses!

  • Chrystal @ YUM eating February 19, 2015 at 3:21 pm

    Those are so pretty. I can smell them all the way over here in Michigan ;) I know everyone loves red roses, but I much prefer the simplicity of a colorful arrangement.

  • Debbie Denny February 19, 2015 at 3:22 pm

    Those are beautiful. This id a neat service.

  • Tracie February 19, 2015 at 7:28 pm

    My goodness. Those roses are gorgeous!!

    It is so much fun to have flowers delivered. It makes any day a special occasion.

  • Ann Bacciaglia February 19, 2015 at 7:59 pm

    These are gorgeous flowers. I would love to get some flowers delivered.

  • Estelle Erasmus February 19, 2015 at 8:40 pm

    These are stunning flowers. I think they look far better and brighter than the well known names.

  • Tess February 19, 2015 at 8:46 pm

    Pretty flowers to get. I haven’t gotten flowers for too long. Lol

    • Christi February 21, 2015 at 8:14 am

      You should send someone a link to The Bouqs as a hint, haha!

  • April Decheine February 23, 2015 at 8:19 am

    Wow, they are beautiful, I heard lots of bad comments about a different flower company that delivered bad flowers for Valentine’s Day.
