Fresh flowers are the best way to brighten up a room. I always love getting new flowers to display around the house, which is why Spring is one of my favorite seasons (closely followed by Autumn!). When The Bouqs kindly offered me a bouquet to review from their concierge subscription service, I had to say yes!

I chose the Cotton Candy bouquet. It has pink Gerbera Daisies, Alstroemeria flowers, and Eryngium, Limonium, and Statice accents. I chose it because it has such a wide variety of flowers and gorgeous Spring-time colors. Just FYI, I got the double bouquet.
My care for the flowers: I trimmed the ends and changed the water every other day. I kept them away from direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time.
All the flowers lasted one week, after that, some of the flowers started to wilt. The daisies were the first to go, but my cat also loved to play with them, so that may have been a part of the problem as well. Two weeks later, the Alstroemeria flowers and Statice are the only ones left.
Thoughts: I am always surprised at how incredibly beautiful the flowers look in person. Everything is super fresh when they are delivered and securely packed. Compared to most flowers you buy at the store, I feel as though the flowers from The Bouqs generally last longer (my roses lasted well over a month!).
