the bouqs!

The Sweetest Rose
 I was recently contacted by
asking if I'd take a dozen fresh roses in exchange for blogging about the experience.
Well, yes to that!

I was given a store credit and told to pick my bouquet.
I picked the one called "Killer".
A gorgeous magenta pink long stem rose.

I've added a sponsorship button on my right margin that you can click on and 
if you buy...I earn a little money. (that's nice)

So when you order....
You schedule online when you'd like the flowers to deliver. 
I believe I did this on a Friday night and told them for next Wednesday.
On Monday, I got an email telling me they were on the way.

Wednesday morning they arrived via Fed Ex.

They were super fresh and came with very long stems.
I cut them to fit my small hobnail vase.

As life goes...I was unable to photograph them on Wednesday and 
Thursday too was a loss but today, Friday I snapped some photos.

Unfortunately, it was a cloudy day and these photos are not as clear as I would like.
These hot pink roses would be just the thing to send someone for Valentine's Day.
Actually, they are just the thing to send yourself for Valentine's Day!

I was very pleased with the quality and freshness of the you can see...
this is day three and they show no signs of fading.

They were just what I needed with my morning tea on my day off.

I highly recommend ordering from

Very hard to believe.

They DO have some beautiful flowers.
I think I would want someone to send me....The Best Around
or maybe Cake and Cream.
Truly, I'd be ecstatic if I received any of these bouquets!
Maybe next year.

Happy Blog Anniversary! The deep pink roses are gorgeous especially with the pink transferware. All the flowers are pretty at Bouqs but I especially like the pink ranunculus and freesias.
