Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and I don’t think there’s anything more capitalized on this day than flowers. No matter what any girl says about her preference towards flowers, she WILL appreciate the gesture of having flowers delivered to her (bonus points if she receives it in front of other females). Here, I’ve compiled a list of online flower delivery services whose aesthetic can be deemed “Instagram-worthy” and is beyond the norm of 1-800-Flowers and also can be delivered nationwide/to Houston:
At The Bouqs, you can choose from 1.) their Farm to Table option where flowers are cut the day you order and shipped from one of their farm partners, preserving the flowers’ freshness, 2.) their Artisan Florist option where you are supporting local florists, or 3.) their Subscriptions option where you can have flowers delivered on a schedule throughout the year.
Bloom That offers a curated selection from partners around the world to deliver what’s in season. Gift baskets are also available to add to your bouquets to up the “aww” factor.
Teleflora sends their orders to local florists to arrange instead of having pre-packaged flowers delivered in boxes that could damage or dehydrate the flowers. They also have an overwhelming selection of flowers to choose from for your main girl, your side girl…
Farmgirl Flowers is limited in their selection because they only offer daily bouquets, but that means they don’t create waste…perfect for the environmentally-conscious.
I’ve been obsessed with the Parisian flowers-in-a-hat-box-design ever since I saw them a couple years ago on Tumblr, and I’m quite disappointed there isn’t a florist in Houston who does this by now. On top of that, many of the shops that are on top of this trend don’t offer delivery to Houston, except Fleurs Prive, Venus et Fleur, and The Million Roses, that I’ve found at least. Even then, Venus et Fleur only delivers the square box option and all three only deliver their preserved roses. This is definitely on the more expensive side, but it’ll be worth your money because these roses last up to a year.
Roseshire’s roses are also delivered in a box, but doesn’t have the Parisian flair as the previously mentioned. The packaging is still very elegant and the roses are arranged in a way that satisfies my OCD-like tendencies. Each rose also comes with its own capsule of water to ensure its quality.
If you know of any other online flower delivery services that deliver to Houston that should be on here and I missed, please let me know!
