Does anyone else binge watch a TV show one time and become obsessed with that thing? Like, you watch a few episodes "MasterChef" and suddenly find yourself cooking up dishes like you're Gordon Ramsay. Or maybe after spending a weekend binging "The Queen's Gambit" you decide to dedicate your life to mastering the game of chess? Most recently, this happened to me after watching "Full Bloom" on HBO. I suddenly became all about flowers!
In case you haven't heard of it, here's a quick synopsis - Full Bloom gives ten talented and innovative up-and-coming florists the opportunity to bring their spectacular creative visions to life through a grueling but gorgeous competition series. In each episode, the budding botanical artists are put to the test in both individual and team challenges that determine whose stems get cut – and who remains in the running for the career-changing $100,000 grand prize to kickstart their business.
In the last episode, the florists get the opportunity to design a signature bouquet for Bouqs, a company which specializes in sustainable and ethically sourced farm to table flowers.
The Bouqs Co.'s philosophy is simple: care about people, the planet, and the process of growing flowers. They believe in farm-direct, transparent sourcing, which means partnering with farmers who use sustainable growing practices like minimizing waste and recycling water. The end result? No more middlemen! Flowers stay fresher, longer making them the perfect gift — for birthdays, anniversaries, new beginnings, or just because.
Founded with the belief that there can never be too much kindness or compassion in the world, the simple gesture of gifting flowers can transform your day, rekindle an old connection, or spark a new one. Their mission is to create a better way to deliver responsibly sourced, farm-fresh flowers and gifts made with love to the people you love the most.
In addition to being able to get your hands on the signature "bouq" from "Full Bloom", the company also boasts a partnership with one of the show's most memorable judges, Maurice Harris, the founder of Los Angeles-based floral studio Bloom & Plume.
His exclusive United with Flowers Collection donates 100% of Net Profits* to Campaign Zero, supporting its mission to combat police brutality through data-informed policy solutions.
Because this collection is so vibrant, colorful and "curated for a cause" - it comes in as my Number #1 pick of the season.
This bouq features an arrangement of white campanula, yellow roses, and craspedia.
While sunflowers have different meanings around the world, they commonly symbolize loyalty, adoration, and longevity. Many people also consider sunflowers to be “happy” flowers, making them a great gift for cheering somebody up. Who wouldn’t want a little more sun in their life?
No stand-in could ever pass for these breathtaking blooms with fragrant eucalyptus accents! Vibrant ranunculus are known for their multiple layers of delicate, paper-thin petals. They’re so symmetric and long-lasting it may be hard to believe they’re real! But they are. Really!
This festive, candy-colored arrangement features pink roses and carnations, yellow roses, craspedia, and orange gerbera daisies, surrounded by even more floral accents. It’s basically a vase full of sugar that helps any medicine go down — just without the calories!
