Why I Love Flowers from (And You Will Too!)

We review

Flowers aren't "fashion," but you'll always find them on fashion bloggers' instagram feeds and strategically placed on style blogs. Flowers are always in style and add instant beauty to a room, and of course always brighten your mood. So that's why I'm so excited to share my recent discovery of, a place for fresh, stylish bouquets that won't break the bank.
I buy flowers a lot online, especially since my friends and family are scattered across the country, but I'm often disappointed by the options out there - it's always the same ol' thing - either really overpriced boring bouquets with a few measly stems and an outdated looking vase OR you have to spend a small fortune just to get something unique - and even when I've spent a lot, I find that I'm still not always satisfied with the flowers I order online.

Enter Right after I had my son, TheBouqs team surprised me with a dozen multi-colored roses. They were gorgeous and vibrant and fresh, and I couldn't help but smile each time I looked at them. I raved about the flowers to my husband, who later placed an order with them for Valentine's Day, purchasing the most stunning Stargazer lillies. They stayed lovely for weeks and the fragrance was dizzying. I was so happy with those flowers.

So then approached me to write a review, and I placed an order for the ranunculus bouquet you see featured here. Once again, they've exceeded my expectations. I got beautiful blooms that look like they came from a posh local florist and only cost $40. I love the packaging, the easy care instructions, and the enclosed gift card. There's nothing not to love!

Yes, I must have missed the episode but while browsing The Bouqs website I noticed they mentioned being on Shark Tank. Love that show!
