Bloomsy Box is a new monthly flower subscription box that sends monthly bouquets filled with the best blooms from around the world to your door in less than 48 hours.
They send single variety hand-tied bouquets (no mixed bouquets with unnecessary extras) with flowers that are sourced direct from suppliers in South America, Holland, Thailand and California meaning no middle-man mark-up to increase the price. Blooms are cut 2-4 days before they arrive at your door.
There are 3 sizes available, and shipping is included in each: small ($34.99), medium ($38.99), and large ($48.99).
The flowers arrived resting in a box appropriately shaped for shipping flowers. Both of our selections were the “large.”
The wapping paper was folded in such a way that it looked neat and presentable. I much prefer this style of wrapping to the clear, sticker-riddled foil used at retail flower shops.
The enclosed card hints at the varieties you may have received.
It also has an IKEA-style guide to caring for your new flowers and prolonging their beauty.
A packet of no-need-to-measure plant food is included.
I really like the understated wrapper and the roses-only selection. I think the single-flower model enables the direct from producer distribution that provides fresher flowers at a better price.
Our roses were a soft red with an orange tone to it. They arrived in nearly full-bloom, with a few of the blossoms showing a little age. They may have been handled improperly enroute, so BloomsyBox replaced them, even though they were still beautiful.
The two dozen roses filled our huge vase. The long stems and foliage were in superb condition, giving us lots of flexibility in choosing cut and container.
The flowers really opened up once placed in the vase with Floralife. It has been several days, and the blossoms are still as nice as they were upon arrival. I liked the warm tone of this selection — roses often come in very cool colors, but this batch had a welcoming glow.
Our second Bloomsy Box was shipped with similar care.
Smartly wrapped and held snuggly in place. The packaging is a very elegant approach to safely shipping the flowers.
The branding is limited to a small sticker holding the paper together, making for a clean appearance.
Our second set of flowers were again long stem roses, but this time they were white with a maroon-pink edge.
The blossoms were just beginning to open when we received our flowers.
After several days, the blooms are all still intact.
The flowers have opened quite a bit, but they are in good condition, having yet to lose a petal.
A close-up of the open bloom. The coloration is quite remarkable — when viewed head-on, the mature blossoms look nearly entirely pink.
We very much enjoyed our BloomsyBox flowers. They were on par with any florist as far as quality, and the price is cheaper than many competitors (a quick google showed ProFlowers and 1800Flowers to offer similar bouquets for $60). The direct-from-supplier shipping and simple, elegant presentation were also big pluses!
The Description: Beautiful flowers by subscription that will bring a smile to your face and fresh blooms to your door. We also have few major differences from the average floral supplier: First, no mixed bouquets with unnecessary extras – BloomsyBox only deals in “single-variety”- hand-tied bunches; second, the flowers are sourced direct from suppliers in South America, Holland, Thailand and California meaning no middle-man mark-up to increase the price.
The Price: $34.99 per month
