Flower subscriptions: What are they, how do they work and where can I sign up?

One of the services we offer at Blooms is a flower subscription. Most people these days are familiar with subscription services providing everything from medicine and books to meals and household items. But the most common reaction we see when a flower subscription is mentioned is surprised interest, followed by the question, "What is that?" or "How does that work?" So here's a brief overview into how the flower subscription works at Blooms.

The first step is to visit our website at http://www.orderblooms.com. On the SHOP tab, choose the flower subscription option, where you can then customize your preferences. With a flower subscription, you can choose to have fresh flowers delivered weekly, every other week, or even once a month to your home or business. You can choose the size of the arrangement and the budget you wish to allocate to this expense. Once you have done that, you enter your personal information, payment method and then sit back to wait for fresh, beautiful flowers to arrive at your doorstep. (Or, at an alternative address of your choice, as subscription services also make wonderful gift ideas. Gifting someone special with fresh flowers lets them know you are thinking of them and reminds them of it with each new delivery.)

With our service, if you wish to customize it further, have it tailored to fit your decorating themes, or have a special affinity – or aversion! – to certain types of flowers, you are welcome to drop us a note in the comments box or call us directly to ensure the flowers you receive are exactly what you are hoping for.

There have been many studies conducted which show the positive psychological benefits of having your space beautified with fresh flowers. Some of those perks include better sleep, less stress, more empathy toward others and a more positive outlook on life, not to mention the fact that flowers can be air purifiers, actually improving your immediate space in a physical, realistic way. With an arrangement of fresh flowers in the room, moods are elevated.

Flowers provide a bright spot of color, they're a fantastic conversation starter, they add intentionality to your space and they activate your sense of smell (which, with all the long range COVID symptoms, has been in the spotlight lately). A bouquet of fresh flowers on your table or the reception counter in your office tells your friends, family and clients that you care enough to class up your space. With a subscription service, Blooms delivers those fresh flowers on a regular, recurring basis, so you don't have to give it a second thought.

I hope this helps to clarify some of the questions you may have surrounding a flower subscription. If there are any other concerns or areas I haven't covered, I'm always happy to chat about it on the phone and help in any way I can. Call (661) 557-5083, and let's talk flowers! Until next time, keep on blooming, and thank you for all of your interest and support.
