A way to say thank you.

I’m perpetually glad that Tim and I don’t need to host holiday parties for my family. Luckily, my mom and Tim’s parents are more than happy to do the hosting while we simply need to show up. 

Thank goodness.

Unfortunately, I don’t always remember to show appreciation for the amount of work it takes to host family holiday parties! I mean, of course we say ‘thank you’, but sometimes it’s nice to do a bit extra.

So with gratitude in mind, we showed up to Thanksgiving brunch at my mom’s house with flowers in hand! (This was also my way to feel less-guilty about the fact that my mom and brother cooked the entire meal while I showed up with a fork, ready to eat!)
I purchased the flowers from TheBouqs.com, and I really can’t say enough great things about them. This is what I loved:
  1. The variety of bouquets to choose from. I fell in love with at least 20 bouquets but I chose one that reminded me of fall.
  2. The entire process is online. I must admit, I dislike picking up the phone and calling people. I know, this is awful, but there’s something about doing things online that makes me feel like I can double-check for accuracy and be sure I did everything correctly! I love that this flower ordering process is entirely online.
  3. The flowers were delivered to my door on time (and in a box). I planned ahead (this is rare for me) and purchased the flowers a week or so in advance and selected the shipping date to be the day before Thanksgiving. They arrived right on time! However, I could have waited until pretty much the last minute, as these flowers can get shipped within 2 days of ordering (for no extra charge)! I also liked that these flowers were delivered in a box, so they could have sat on my porch for a while (had I not been home when they were delivered) without freezing/dying.
  4. The packaging was descriptive. The flowers came with a description about where they came from (a volcano!) and instructions on how to care for them. I love helpful packaging!
  5. TheBouqs.com sources only from eco-friendly, sustainable farms that respect the environment and their workers. (Enough said!)
  6. The flowers were fresh. I was fairly wary about receiving flowers in a box, but I opened them and they looked perfect. Even better than perfect, actually.
  7. They stayed alive for quite a while. If I’m going to be paying for flowers, I prefer they live for a bit of time! I visited my mom over a week after giving her the flowers, and they were still displayed on her kitchen table, looking great!
Needless to say, I’ll be ordering from them again in the future, especially if I wait until the last minute to send a thank you/birthday/holiday present to a friend and need a beautiful gift to get to them fast.

If you order a bouquet in the next few days, you’ll be able to send these gorgeous flowers as a perfect ‘thanks for hosting’ gift or even a ‘Happy New Years’ present!
