Flowers in a box vs. Professional Florist delivery
Viva la difference!
the inbloom.com "WOW!"
The "Farm Fresh" guy's "HUH?"
The Do-It-Yourself Kit on the right is not how we spell Romantic!
We NEVER ship flowers in a box, here's why... The stems and vase are packed separately in the box. They are tightly packed so there is lots of wrapping to undo. Your recipient will have to follow the instructions provided. First, they will have to re-cut the stems under water. Then pour warm water and the provided preservative into the vase. Then place the stems in the vase and try to arrange them. No WOW factor. No artistry. No style. And most importantly, no florist.
The truth about those "farm fresh" flowers - they are sitting in a cooler somewhere waiting for you to order them. "Picked fresh" from the "fields of Philadelphia". They would like you to believe that when you place an order - Manuel heads out to the fields and picks them fresh for you, but the truth is far from that. In reality, all drop-shippers of flowers, "pre-stage" deliveries from flower coolers in Philadelphia, Memphis, and Miami. They are nothing like the lovely professionally arranged product photos they show on their site.
Our flowers are always professionally arranged using quality glass vases or baskets, fancy accent flowers and exotic greens, and hand delivered by a Professional Florist in the recipients area. They are never left on the porch by a FedEx Truck, in a do it yourself box to be arranged by the recipient of your gift.
Sending boxed flowers as a gift? They're NOT going to look like the picture advertised.
