Here’s a note to say,
These flowers were for your special day.
The ad said they were $29.99,
But that didn’t include the sky-high delivery fine.
So the next time you deserve some flash,
I’ll just bundle up a wad of cash.
Ordering flowers online can be a seedy affair. At least it was until The Bouqs arrived, with roses, agapanthus, and lilies in tow. The new delivery service puts the (first) class back into mail-order blooms by way of a beautiful virtual shop and boutique bouquets that ship for $40 flat.
California-based co-founders John Tabis and JP Montúfar liaise with farms throughout South America to source organic, volcano soil-nourished stems that are cut and shipped the minute you order.
Gift-worthy subscriptions are available for the chronically romantic (schedule weekly or monthly sends) or forgetful (plug in anniversaries and birth dates and get reminders with time to spare).
Available at thebouqs.com. Use checkout code DailyCandy15 for 15 percent off your first single order or 25 percent off your first subscription order through November 29, 2013.
