Inside the box, BloomsyBox included a couple of cards.
The first card encouraged subscribers to share pictures of their blooms on social media.
The second card introduced this month’s shipment- Gerbera Daisies!
From the info card: “Bright and beautiful, Gerber are simple but gorgeous. We chose Gerbera daisies this month because we figured we all need a little reminder to be positive.”
To keep the flowers from bouncing around in the box during transit, they were secured to the base with a plastic cable tie.
Each bloom was protected by a mesh hood and plastic stem cover.
Inside the brown paper was a packet of flower food.
On the side of the box, I found care instructions.
I trimmed the stems, arranged them in a vase, and added water and plant food.
The flowers were lovely!
Most of the flowers arrived in pristine condition (one or two were very slightly bruised), but the quality was far better than I’m able to find in my local shops.
I love the vibrant colors. They smelled great, too!
The following day, the flowers had opened up, and the bouquet was even more beautiful!
On day 3, I refreshed the water.
As of day 4, the flowers still looked pretty good. Here’s a shot of them 4 days in:
I had to remove a a couple that started to look a little wilty, but most of the blooms were still in good shape.
The Verdict: Freshly cut flowers are one of my favorite small luxuries, and I’m absolutely in love with my BloomsyBox Gerbera Daisies! They were packed with great care, arrived very fresh, and are so beautiful. In terms of value, I received 24 Gerbera stems from BloomsyBox for $48.99. To receive the same thing from 1-800 Flowers, I’d need to pay $69.98. I’m sure I could buy flowers for less at Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s, but I’ve had mixed luck with the quality of the flowers available at my local grocery stores (and I find I always seem to knock them around and bruise them on the way home).
