Sunday Bouquet: Neon Pink Tinged Roses On Flokati

Pink Roses From The Bouqs On Flokati Rug

The Bouqs, a new online flower delivery service, delivered this bouquet of bright, crisp roses (gratis) via FedEx, right to my doorstep.

Based in Venice, California, The Bouqs  offers a 40 pretty floral bouquets with cute names like Happy Harvest, Tiki Torches, and Thick As Thieves. And they’re all $40 or $50. Try finding another online flower delivery service (especially ones that don’t specialize in tacky red carnations) for that price.

The Bouqs works exclusively with farms that are independently certified by agencies such as Veriflora and The Rainforest Alliance as being sustainable and eco-friendly. And its Happiness Guarantee means if the flowers arrive late or last less than three days, they’ll send out another bouquet.

The quality of these flowers from The Bouqs was definitely superior to other online flower delivery services I’ve tried. They weren’t all wilted when I removed them from the cardboard box, and they’re still looking lovely four days later. The downside is that you have to plan ahead, as the lead time can be a week or more, depending on the collection. Also, since they’re shipped rather than hand delivered from a local florist, there’s no vase.

My roses, which came with purple statice that I separated out and arranged with local floral and fauna found down by the pool (shh!), are from the Desperado bouquet.

Sunday Bouquet: Pink Garden Peony

I snagged this from my mother-in-laws garden last month, before she was on the Cape for the summer. Shhh, don’t tell. I think it’s a peony. I stuck it in a milk glass bud vase on my sideboard. Love the way it looks against the white wall.

Sunday Bouquet: Multicolor Bunch from Hidden Pond

One of the best parts of the Hidden Pond resort in Kennebunkport, Maine is the flower and herb garden, where guests can help themselves to shears from the little garden sheds and snip, snip, snip. I was pure joy to put together this little bouquet for myself, and one for my friend Deb too. We spotted the garden just as we were leaving, so we stuck the blooms in water and brought them home to Boston.

Sunday Bouquet: White Peony in Glass Vase

White Peony In White Vase

If I don’t get out to the Cape in early June, I miss the peonies. This year, school let out pretty early, so we just spent a week there, and the white peonies were blooming, blooming, blooming. Here’s one in a tiny glass vase on a rattan coaster  on the dining room sideboard.
