Disclosure: Thanks to The Bouqs for sponsoring this post!
It’s the holiday season and as we’re all busy with shopping and gift giving, many of us may be getting ready for holiday parties with our families and friends. Just this weekend we worked on creating a Grinch themed birthday party for my daughter (details coming soon) and we were so excited to incorporate a gorgeous and festive holiday flower centerpiece into our party decor using Bouqs!
We got a chance to pick out some beautiful fresh flowers of our choice from The Bouqs and we were so thrilled with this gorgeous display of White Ranunculus with Green Ruscus called the “Frosty” bouquet on their online shop.
When the flowers arrived they were tightly packed and came with great instructions on getting your flowers out and set up to look beautiful. They’ll need some time to fully open up, so give them a day or two to fully reach their gorgeous potential! Peel off any loose or discolored petals on the flowers and follow the directions carefully to fully reach your Bouq potential!
We took these gorgeous white flowers and added them to a vase filled with ornaments and they made the perfect centerpiece for our Grinch Birthday party. It’s so simple to make a decorative bouquet like this…simply follow the instructions on your Bouqs delivery, grab one smaller vase that fits into one larger vase. Fill the smaller vase with water and your Bouqs stems and then place inside the larger vase where you can fill with ornaments or other fillers of your choice (cranberries, bows, ribbons, or even Christmas lights!).
Bouqs is so much different than other online flower companies because Bouqs flowers never sit in a corner store or a dingy warehouse (where they send you the oldest, most-dead flowers they have in the fridge), and they never show up in a van with a 1-800 number on the side. They ship straight from an active volcano or from the sunny surf of California, seriously! An ACTIVE VOLCANO straight from the seller, no warehouses! They’re fresh as fresh can be!
The value piece is key… all other floral companies pitch flowers for $19.99 but rarely offer selection at those prices, then tack on delivery and shipping fees. For Bouqs, they simplify with simply flat rate pricing – outlined below. $40 flat rate for Volcano collection (from South America).
Information on pricing is pretty simple. The Bouqs offer different Bouq sizes and pricing :
For the Volcano Collection (From South America)
• Original Bouq – $40
• Deluxe Bouq – $50 (double the blooms of the Original Bouq)
• Grand Bouq – $70 (triple the blooms of the Original Bouq)
• Shipping included.
• Orders take up to 6 days for delivery; deliveries take place Monday – Friday.
For the California Collection:
• Original Bouq – $50
• Deluxe Bouq – $60 (double the blooms of the Original Bouq)
• Shipping included straight from the California coast.
• Orders can be placed for next day delivery prior to 11:45am PST Monday – Friday.

Something else about the Bouqs that’s pretty cool? All of their bouquets ship with 15% extra blooms to offset any damaged in delivery (usually it’s none, so you get extra Bouq for your buck). For example, if you ordered a dozen roses you would get 14, not just 12! It’s their way of taking care of you and making sure you get exactly what you’re expecting!
The Bouqs source only from eco-friendly, sustainable farms that respect the environment and their workers.
