For my blog followers interested in floral design/flowers, or for anyone who might be sending flowers to someone in the near future, I posted a few photos below of custom bouquets I created for The Bouqs Co. (click here to watch YouTube video.)
Each hand-crafted bouquet is hand-tied, placed in an optional glass vase, wrapped in Kraft paper with a fold-over notecard and attached with a clothespin. It makes a lovely presentation for the recipient. And delivery is free!
Bouqs Artisan Florist/Same day Delivery bouquets are available in select markets. To find out if delivery is available, type in the zip code where you would like to have flowers delivered.
This is a “Rustic” bouquet sent as a “Thank you!”
“Farmer’s Market” with bright and bold sunflowers sent as a “Get Well” for a Dad (Yes, men are sent flowers too!)
“Summer Style” sent as a “Promotion Congratulations” to a daughter at her job.
“Grace” which has a green and white color scheme sent as a “Thinking of You.” The Bouqs Co. liked this bouquet a lot and posted it on their Instagram account last week under “Featured Florist.”
Three Tips on Sending Flowers:
-Try to find out when the recipient is home and request to have flowers delivered during the time frame that they’re at home. Flowers left outside in extreme heat will wilt or die. And some recipients don’t want flowers left at a neighbor’s house.
-If sending flowers to a hospital, ICU does NOT allow flowers in patients’ rooms. Many people don’t know this fact. The above sunflower bouquet was for a patient in ICU. The nurse said, “I can take the card and read it to the patient but I can only show him the flowers from outside his door.”
-If you have a specific flower or color scheme in mind, place the flower order a few days in advance to be sure that your request can be met.
