We’re going to share two fun and easy decorating tips you can recreate in time for your St. Patrick’s Day party. Ready to unlock your DIY prowess? Let’s go!

Here’s what you’ll need: Succulents Succulent planters Acrylic paint (we chose white, gold, and emerald green) Paint brushes Step 1: Paint your planters in fun St Paddy’s themes that speak to you!

The Bouqs Company is proud to support the many women leaders running our farms and florist locations in the U.S. and South America. With International Women’s Day coming up on March 8, we wanted to shine a light on three women who rock! We asked farmer-owners Maria and Juanita, and florists Jennifer and Nicole what it’s like being female business owners. Their hard work, dedication and knack for design are what help make our Bouqs great. Check out their inspiring responses below. 1. As a female business owner, how do you see your role impacting or empowering women? Juanita: I think that women are playing a stronger role in today’s world. I’d like to think that examples of women as CEOs around the world provide some support for future generations to see that gender, although different, does not make us more or less. Hard work and results go hand-in-hand. Maria: I really consider there is no difference between a woman or a man owning a business professionally; it doesn’t have any impact. However, running a flower business and being a woman does make a difference when talking about sensitivity and the feeling expressed with our product. Jennifer & Nicole: […]
Galentine’s Day is one of our favorite holidays because it combines two things we love: flowers and friends. And because we always like an excuse to celebrate, we recently hosted a Galentine’s Day get-together with a few of our local LA gals. Our flower-filled celebration was made even more memorable thanks to a few partners who teamed up to help with entertainment. It’s true what they say – we get by with a little help from our friends! Decorating our event space was made easy with a few balloons (sparkly, of course!), along with DIY floral wreaths and garland. Find step-by-step instructions on how to make floral wreaths for your next party! Once everyone arrived, guests tried their hand at arranging their own Bouqs using our Galentine’s Day DIY floral package. The best part- everyone got to take their Bouqs home in gorgeous vases provided by Shabby Chic! As for food, we wanted to make this party extra special by using eye-catching, disposable tableware sets provided by Harlow & Grey. Disposable tableware makes cleaning up at the end of the day easy, and everything is recyclable too, which is A++ in our book! And if our friends were in […]
Valentine’s Day is just a few days away, and we can guarantee there’s at least one person expecting a special treat from you on February 14th. Flowers are a classic gift, and The Bouqs Company’s new Valentine’s Day catalogue has no shortage of unique arrangements for every important relationship in your life, from moms and mentors to lovers and friends. We turned to our very own CEO, John Tabis, to help us demystify the gifting game. Co-founding The Bouqs Company in 2012, he’s what you’d call a bit of an expert. So let’s get gifting, shall we? Procrastinators, Take Note! John’s first tip is a practical one: lock in your Valentine’s Day order as early as possible, and try to get your flowers delivered before the big day. Not only does this save time and money, it also ensures your bouquet will get the special attention it deserves! For those who do plan to pick out their Valentine’s Day gift at the stroke of midnight, we do offer same day and next day delivery options through our network of local florists. However, even our florists may be inundated on that day, so your best bet is to plan early and […]
Galentine’s Day is right around the corner, so let’s make this year’s get-together the best. day. ever.

After being lauded as the one that got away, The Bouqs Co. hooked up with the ever-savvy stars of ABC’s Shark Tank this past Sunday to talk growth, what we’ve learned since our time on the show, and (of course!) flowers. When The Bouqs Company’s Co-founder and CEO John Tabis dove into the Tank in 2014, we were a new, hungry startup with a deep belief that the flower industry could be better — for the farmer, the customer, and the planet. Since then, we’ve become a bigger fish in the pond, getting attention from Oprah, TIME, and more. It’s been a wild ride, and it seems like we’re just getting started! On the show, we got the chance to catch up with the Sharks and talk through our journey, including a tour through our brand-new office space in Marina del Rey — a 5th anniversary present to ourselves and our growing team. What began as a lean operation working out of a home has blossomed into a team of 60 securing $43 million in funding. And we don’t plan on slowing down any time soon! Minutes from historic, eclectic Venice Beach, the fresh digs were designed with the same […]
On Sunday night, the Sharks and The Bouqs Co. get the chance to catch up for our first time on ABC’s hit show Shark Tank since our initial pitch in 2014. In case you’re new to the club, The Bouqs Co. and the Sharks have a long history. Fans of the show may remember Mark Cuban’s regret over not backing The Bouqs Company after our first pitch in 2014. But there’s no hard feelings! We even had the honor of providing all the flowers for Shark extraordinaire Robert Herjavec and Dancing with the Stars dazzler Kym Johnson’s Beverly Hills wedding. Be sure to tune in to ABC on Sunday, January 28 at 9 pm/8 pm CST. Or, check your local listings so you don’t miss a second of the action!
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, thousands of florists throughout our network are preparing to dazzle your special someone’s doorstep with perfectly crafted Bouqs that are Made With Heart. We spoke with New York floral designer Rachel Cho to get a look inside her studio as her team hustles to get ready for Valentine’s Day. For Rachel and her crew, Valentine’s Day brings a whole different picture to mind––when the big day comes, they trade the pinot for pruners. “I don’t actually remember a time when I’ve celebrated Valentine’s Day the day of,” says Cho. “Growing up in my mom’s flower shop, Valentine’s Day has always equated with work.” While the holiday requires plenty of effort, there’s nothing Rachel and her merry band of florists get more excited about than making extra special bouquets for their Valentine’s Day customers. “We love having a color palette to work with so we can surprise people with flower varieties,” says Rachel. She and her New York-based team are the artisans behind Bouqs like Grace, Rustic, and Romantique. As these floral experts get ready for one of the biggest holidays of the year, Rachel readily admits that preparing for Valentine’s Day is a challenge, […]

Every February, millions of lovers, friends, and family say “I love you” with the gift of flowers. We know those moments matter to you, which is why they matter so much to us. To ensure that the gift is worthy of the occasion, each Bouq in our Valentine’s Day Collection is sourced from farms that go above and beyond to deliver the best to your loved ones through environmentally responsible sourcing and a commitment to crafting with care. We wanted to offer a few stories direct from the source, so we paid a visit to a couple of our South American farms to hear how they prepare for Valentine’s Day and guarantee every Bouq is Made With Heart! A typical day at one of our Ecuadorian farms starts with a special team member who helps transport flowers across the field… Domingo carrying one of our favorite flower types –– lilies! “Domingo the donkey makes our day. He’s always positive and willing to help,” says farmer Johanna Neumann. With how he “helps us every morning with our boxes and flowers” and “takes them from the harvest to the post-harvest area” where the Bouqs are bunched, he is certainly a strong candidate for […]
