BloomsyBox October 2018 Review

To introduce the beautiful flowers in this month's box is a card that shares some info about them. I've never heard of Free Spirit Roses until now, but I did notice when I first opened the box that the flowers I was greeted by seemed a little more unique than your average rose. I was glad to read the bit saying, "If the outer petals appear to be dry or cracked, don't fear! Your roses aren't dead. They're just different!" because the outer petals were, indeed, a bit brown. I just pulled those ones off and the flowers looked lovely.

Here are a few more facts about Free Spirit Roses. I endeavor to learn about—or at least know the names of—as many flowers as possible, and this fact sheet gives the just-right amount of info to teach me a thing or two without being overwhelming.

This card gives basic cut flower care tips.

And, here, they explain what the deal is with "Rain Forest Alliance Certified" products. It's all good, eco-friendly stuff!

I started by filling my vase about halfway and sprinkling in one packet of flower food. It didn't say this anywhere on the included info cards, but it was my understanding that I was only supposed to add one to start and then add the second one a few days later when I would change the water.

Here's what the bouquet looked like freshly unpacked from the box. I like the paper they used to wrap the flowers! The stems were wrapped in protective packing foam, but nothing that would keep them wet. I was too eager to get these beauts out of the box to snap a picture of how the stems were packed, whoops! I'll show you what it looks like next month.

Before putting flowers in a vase, it's advised to trim the stems 1-2 inches and break off the lower leaves so they don't sit in the water (I've lazily skipped that second step in the past and those leaves end up rotting in the water and smelling terrible). Before I did any trimming, I just had to have my husband snap a photo of me holding these lovelies in their leafy glory! As these are roses, their stems did have thorns, some of which I broke off as I handled them so I wouldn't cut my hands.

Here's how the flowers looked the following morning. SO BEAUTIFUL, right? I just adore the way they opened up to reveal their orange-ish centers. The color scheme is like a brilliant sunrise. Nature is amazing, isn't it? The next day, they began to look a hint brown. I expected a fresh stem trim and water change to prolong their life, but surprisingly they dried out later that day. I left them in their vase looking dry for a few days because they still smelled good. I'll look forward to seeing if next month's flowers last a day or two longer looking fresh—I hope!

Verdict: This was my first flower delivery from BloomsyBox and I was happy with my experience. I liked learning about a new variety of flowers and enjoying their beauty in a concentrated, single-variety arrangement on my table. As someone who always wants to have fresh flowers on display in my home but is concerned about the environmental impact, I'm extremely enthusiastic about the sustainable practices BloomsyBox uses. For $43.99, I would have loved for my roses to have lasted longer, but I'm hopeful that a different type of flower will stay vibrant for a longer stretch, and am excited to see what next month has to offer!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you'll receive the November bouquet. Boxes ship between the 16th and the 23rd of each month.

Hi there, I'm Christen. I am all sorts of things: a writer who loves to convey feeling, a mother who wants to have just as much fun as my kids do, an outdoors-lover who's achieved #1000hoursoutside with my family, a low-maintenance self-carer, and general hungry person with a sweet tooth.

You'll find me collecting stationery and squirreling away stickers, riding bikes and swimming with my family, creating outfits in colors and silhouettes that make me feel amazing, wearing big earrings, drinking beer and asking my husband to feed me harmonies to sing, taking my vitamins, living for dancing to live music, roping everyone into a craft, being human and vulnerable, and celebrating the phenomenon of being alive.

They have brown on them in the pictures. I would be very upset. That’s not cheap for bad flowers. I get $5-10 bouquets at the grocery store about once a week and they last 1-2 weeks, or even longer with the flower food. Maybe it’s because they shipped without water?

They died the next day and you were happy with this sub? I’d be on the phone asking for a free replacement!

Wow my roses from costco always last weeks. I would be very disappointed to get flowers at that cost that died in a few days.

I don’t see how you could say $50 worth of flowers that lasted one day, could be worth the money and be a good experience. It seems like a lot of pandering to me. $50 worth of flowers should last at least a week or more. Makes me very suspect of your reviews, when I see things like this, especially when the product was provided to you for free.
