Shark Tank + Perfect Bouquets

I want to let you in on a little secret...I am obsessed with watching Shark Tank! Does anyone else watch this show?! I just find the ideas and companies that people dream up to be so inspiring and motivating!! Yes I've shed a few tears watching some of their stories unfold, not my proudest moment, but it happens! I've seen a few really great companies and even more great ideas - The Red Dress Boutique was hands down the largest investment I had ever seen thrown out on the show... $1.2 million! 
So I'm sure you're wondering where this is going! Well, I was watching Shark Tank and The Bouqs Company came up! I thought the concept was brilliant and the idea fresh, pun intended since it has everything to do with flowers! Sadly, none of the sharks wanted to invest, but that didn't stop the company from making a lasting impact on me. Fast forward to a few months later and the opportunity came up to review a fresh delivery of roses for the blog!! Clearly not one to pass on flowers, I jumped at the chance to see what this company was all about! 
I chose to have them delivered to my office and picked a random Tuesday. They arrived in perfect condition and right on time!  
After opening the flowers I realized a few of them had "guard" petals that at first glance looked to be wilting, but I read the box carefully and saw they needed to be removed...who knew!?
I immediately put them in a vase - second mistake!! After tagging the photo on instagram, their social media team replied and said to check their blog out for more ways on increasing the life of the flowers! Doing as I was told I removed all the guard petals and cut the stems to the appropriate length!! That made the biggest difference and even though I came in the next day to see two of the roses appear to be wilting, I trimmed them a little more and they perked right up! 
This is one full week after I received the roses!! I think a few of them would have lasted longer if I didn't trek them from work to home last week! While the roses didn't last as long as some other flowers I've bought, they did last a longer than any flowers I received from other retail vendors. I also think user error had something to do with is as I probably shouldn't have moved them as much as I did! 
What makes The Bouqs different? A lot, in my opinion! 
~Shipping is included in ALL orders, so you don't have to worry about seeing one price when you click to order and an increased crazy price when you're ready to place your order. 
~Bouquets come in three easy sizes: Original ($40); Deluxe ($50) & Grand ($70) 
~ You can get the whole spiel on how it works, but in a nutshell the stems are cut closer to the date they are being shipped out and last up to 3x longer than other sites. 
The coolest part is that you can have the flowers shipped from a sustainable farm (near a volcano) and this does not hike the price up! 

My biggest fear when sending flowers is that they wont look like they do in the photos (1-800 Flowers is notorious for this) and sadly I've been embarrassed on several occasions when my family and friends get their gift of what I think to be a grand bouquet only to find out it would have been better to buy at the grocery store!!  With that being said and knowing everything I know about this company I will 100% use them going forward for all flower gifts! 

Do you order flowers online often? Have you ever heard of The Bouqs?! 

Disclosure: The Bouqs company sent me roses for review purposes, but all opinions are 100% my own. This post contains affiliate links which means if you click them and place an order I will receive a small compensation.

  1. These look beautiful! My mom's birthday is this weekend, and I was going to send her flowers - so it is perfect timing! It is awesome that they give you instructions on how to care for the flowers!

  5. Those flowers are beautiful!!! We watch Shark Tank every week! When I saw the Red Dress Boutique come on I was like ahhhhhhhhh because I have been following along with them since the beginning! They have the cutest stuff and basically that girl stole my dream haha! Chris and I are determined to come up with an idea so we can go on.

  6. Beautiful flowers - what a nice midweek treat! I love that there are no hidden fees for shipping - that is always my biggest pet peeve about ordering flowers online!

  10. The flowers are beautiful! I love it when I find start up companies that have a fresh take on an old idea to make it better, step aside 1-800-FLOWERS ;-)

  11. Your roses were gorgeous! I had the chance to get them as well and I set them up and waited for Mark to say something.....like where they were from but my Cher Clueless moment didn't peak his interest at all ;-) I really need to get my review going!

  15. We are TOTALLY obsessed with Sharktank! It's one of the shows we watch together on whatever night J is actually around! And funny story about Red Dress-- J had a project with some guy when we lived in Athens (he went to UGA for grad school) and since we were going grocery shopping straight from there, I tagged along (the meeting was going to be short). The guy's wife had a friend over...and the friend was the owner of Red Dress Boutique! We were watching the episode and I was like WAIT I MET HER! haha

  16. Yes, I'm obsessed with Shark Tank but I don't get to watch it enough. We need DVR! (Except we don't, because we really never have time to watch tv, HA!) I would love to do a review like this! Lucky you! And the flowers are beautiful! So happy to keep them in mind next time I need to send flowers!

  17. I have watched Shark Tank a few times. The Profit is good too. Your flowers look beautiful. This sounds like a much better option than 1-800 Flowers too. Thank you for sharing your review!! I hope that you are having a great day so far too!! :-)

  18. Those flowers are beautiful! My husband loves watching shark tank and I get into it too. You are right that sometimes those stories are so inspiring! I don't normally buy flowers, but I'll have to give hubs a hint when my bday rolls around :) haha

  26. I order flowers online a couple times a year for my mom since she's three hours away. I'll have to try them out!

  27. Very cool! I love Shark Tank and get really excited when I come across a company from the show in real life :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think the best part is all of the detail they give you on how to take care of your flowers. Most places don't do that and it shortens the lifespan. This is definitely a company I will order from!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. These flowers are beautiful and I love that shipping is already included!

  30. Oh those roses are so pretty! I have definitely been disappointed by flower deliveries to my family in the past that haven't looked like the picture, so this sounds great!

  38. First of all, how did I not know about The Red Dress Boutique?!!? Seriously. Where have I been? SUCH.CUTE.STUFF! Secondly, so glad to learn of The Bouqs company...this is going to come in handy, especially when I'm wanting to send flowers to friends/family in super small towns with limited or no florist options! Thanks!

  42. Gorgeous flowers! I've only sent flowers once or twice this way, but have received a few bouquets. This company sounds great.
    And yes! Love Shark Tank! Since we have a sled business we've thought about going on there, but those folks are a bit intimidating for me.

  45. Who wouldn't want to get roses on a random Tuesday, especially when they're so gorgeous. I totally would have thought they were half-dead and promptly thrown them in a vase too though, ha.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Looks like they have some really beautiful bouquets! I never think to order flowers online but should start especialy for my MIL and others who don't live nearby.

  49. Ok first, the red door boutique is one of my favorite places to shop, so it's very sad the shark tank didn't see their potential. Second you had me at flowers! I am always looking for unique flowers that don't cost a fortune and will last. I have some ladies that I need to deliver flowers to so this post helps me a ton!!

  61. Oh girl, you had me at Shark Tank...by far one of my fave shows...and now they have reruns on during the week. Heaven! I'm in the same boat - I love discovering new companies and great products, but also just seeing all of the creativity out there! I mean, obviously all products start somewhere but this is truly inspiring to me.

    I actually don't remember the one with The Bouqs, but wow gorgeous flowers! And you are a lucky, lucky girl for being able to review them. Your roses were gorg!!
