Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and I’m already dreaming about gorgeous flowers. Pinterest is my go-to source for finding gorgeous flower arrangements (I even have a board for gorgeous flower arrangements ???????? ). I have a habit of browsing through the pretty bouquets and amazing mixes of flowers!
I LOVE getting flowers on Valentine’s Day. I mean, I just love getting flowers in general, but for Valentine’s Day I get especially excited.
Around Valentine’s Day, online flower shopping becomes super popular. I like to browse through the arrangements, but the one thing that’s always bugged me about those big-name online flower stores is how lame their flowers look.
The selections are normally a couple types of flowers mixed together to create an arrangement that looks like it was done in the 90s. Am I the only one who thinks that these online shops are outdated?
The other problem is, the picture that you see is definitely not what you get. First, the picture that they show is always the most expensive arrangement, so the one you can actually afford is sad in comparison. Second, when it comes to your door, you have to sit there and try to recreate the arrangement in your vase at home. It never EVER looks the same.
Where are all the gorgeous bouquets? Where’s the modern flower shop that makes the pretty Pinterest arrangements? Why can’t the flowers that get delivered to my door actually look like the picture?
Well, last year I found the answer to all my questions – Farmgirl Flowers!!
Last year I was browsing through a magazine and I happened to read an article about a flower shop in San Francisco called Farmgirl Flowers. The pictures in the article looked amazing, like my Pinterest boards had come to life on paper, so I had to read.
Farmgirl Flowers is creating a new way to order flowers online. Every day, they buy gorgeous fresh flowers that are grown right here in America. Then, instead of having a ton of different arrangements online for people to choose from, they only make one arrangement per day.
By only making one arrangement per day, they cut down on waste and are able to make beautiful, fresh, high-quality bouquets.
And, let me tell you about these designs. Farmgirl isn’t like those outdated flower companies online. They don’t just throw together a bunch of stems all cut at the same height and call it a bouquet.
Nope! Instead, they have expert flower designers that create gorgeous bouquets perfectly designed to look like those Pinterest flowers. I’m talking their arrangements look like they are wedding bouquets!
Online, you can choose from 4 different sizes of arrangements – Fun Size, Just Right, Big Love, and Fancy Pants XL. Each bouquet is just a different sized version of their daily design.
The pictures of the bouquets in their shop online are actually what you will get, except with the flowers they have that day. So the gorgeous design, the pretty mixture of greenery, flowers, and texture, and the perfectly arranged stems is ACTUALLY what your bouquet will look like.
Farmgirl Flowers ships arrangements daily from San Fransisco around the country. You pay one flat shipping price, and your freshly arranged flowers will be sent straight to your door.
After reading all about Farmgirl Flowers, I decided I had to get a bouquet! This was back in the summer, so I started dropping MAJOR hints to Ben for our anniversary!
Because Ben is the best, and totally got my hints, when our anniversary came around, there was a gorgeous “Just Right” size bouquet of Farmgirl Flowers at our door (in a box of course).
Right out of the box these flowers were GORGEOUS! The flowers have been pre-arranged and tied so that they all stay together in their design. So literally, I grabbed the flowers out of the box and they looked exactly like the picture. Exactly how they were arranged by the flower designer at the shop.
The base of all the stems was wrapped in a burlap sack made from leftover coffee bean bags. It was super cute and looked even cuter with the Farmgirl Flowers tag hanging from the tie.
All of the flowers looked great, especially for just being sent from San Fransisco all the way to Pittsburgh! They were fresh and I was impressed with how well they held up. Their shipping was definitely top notch!
Let me just tell you how much I loved this bouquet! Ben kept commenting on how many times I said that I loved it. It literally felt like I had a full sized, custom wedding bouquet! Even once the burlap wrapping was off and I put the flowers into a vase, the arrangement stilled looked exactly like it did in the pictures.
The flowers were beautiful! I love how they used greenery in the back to build up volume and height. And, you know how much I love my greens, especially eucalyptus.
Eucalyptus is a staple greenery in their bouquets! In the front, the mix of flowers and other textures, like the kale stem, created tons of interest. Basically, the flower arrangement was amazing!
After getting a bouquet from Farmgirl Flowers, no other online flower arrangement can compare for me! I honestly do not think I will ever order from a big-name online flower store again.
So, for this Valentine’s Day, start dropping those hints now! You will love getting a gorgeous bouquet of flowers delivered right to your door! Or, treat yourself or a friend to a pretty bouquet. Gorgeous flowers – especially Farmgirl Flowers – will make any day great!
