BloomsyBox is an interesting service I’d never heard of before they reached out to me. The company sends you fresh flowers monthly, weekly or biweekly. You can cancel the subscription at any time. The service caters to those who want an easy way to spice up their decor, and I was definitely interested when they asked me to test a product for review. Having fresh flowers all the time sounds amazing. BloomsyBox hand-picks the flowers, and the bouquets you receive are always very different.
I received my flowers when I returned home from work. Sadly, they waited for me for at least 6 hours in the 94° weather. I was surprised by how sturdy and well packed the box was. BloomsyBox takes care to protect the bouquet, which I was impressed with. I have to admit though, I was a little underwhelmed with my roses at first because the tips of the outer petals were browning.
I assume that the discoloration is due to their long wait in the heat, so I contacted BloomsyBox and was met with an extremely helpful representative. He suggested that I carefully remove the browning outside petals. I followed this advice (it was a lot of petals), and my flowers looks much better! The box came with clear instructions to make the flowers last. Like a good reviewer, I followed them diligently. I trimmed the stems of my roses and put them in a clean vase, and added the BloomsyBox flower food to the water. The flowers lasted almost 12 days before visible wilting and petal loss forced me to replace them.
All in all, I think BloomsyBox is working with a very clever idea. The flowers were gorgeous and well packed, and they sat wonderfully after being trimmed. While it is true that the $38.15-$41.00 price of BloomsyBox subscriptions might be a deterrent to some, it is still far less expensive than most floral shops and subscription based services. If fresh flowers are important to your home decor, and you enjoy getting monthly gifts of flowers then this plan is perfect for you!
