BloomNation puts you in touch with local florists. It allows you to find and order floral arrangements based on your occasion, flower or aesthetic preferences. You can search for florists in your area, check out their designs, place an order and have your flowers hand delivered. The real selling point of this service is that you support local businesses which provide high quality flower arrangements, delivered to your door. If the site and satisfied customers are anything to go by, you’ll be hard pushed to find better quality flowers with such unique designs.
Support local businesses which provide high quality flower arrangements, delivered to your door.
This is how Bloom Nation works: enter your zip code. It’s that simple! From there, the site shows you a variety of floral arrangements which have been designed by florists in your area. They cover a lot of the key cities across the US, showcasing some of their best designs. All you have to do is look through the designs and choose one you like. You can then order it through BloomNation.com and it will be hand delivered to your door. Not only does this provide a quick and high-quality service, but it also helps local business, which is always a good thing.
If you have a particular preference (let’s say you really enjoy roses or sunflowers, for example) then you can search for arrangements which include your favorite flowers or colors. Alternatively, you can find bouquets and other items which suit your budget, and browse the results. These results can be filtered further based on your preferred style (modern, traditional or grand) to really narrow in on your ideal options. It’s a well-designed system which really saves you time, since you don’t have to explore individual florists’ websites to seek out a particular flower or arrangement which you enjoy.
Because you’re ordering from florists, you’ll be investing in bespoke designs rather than run-of-the-mill bouquets which you might find in multiple stores. The difference here is quality; a florist won’t want to make you a poor bouquet because it would harm their reputation. There’s accountability, simply because you know who you’re ordering from. In fact, you can find out more about each florist and their shop, and customers leave ratings so you have some idea of what to expect from each shop and their services, as well as the quality of the flowers delivered.
Bloom Nation offers a funerals (or Sympathy) range which includes bouquets, items for the home, items for the funeral service, plants and vases. We were impressed by this because many flower delivery sites only offer bouquets and plants, whereas here you can order arrangements for caskets and stands or easels.
Add-ons, range and price
There are one or two slight drawbacks to BloomNation when comparing it to its peers. The first is the range of flowers available. Whilst it’s not bad, and does depend on where you are ordering from, some people may find it a little limited. They don’t sell extras such as balloons or gift packages, for example. That said, if you do choose to research the florists they use, you may find that individual shops offer more options and services than appear on Bloom Nation.
These arrangements are also a little more expensive than you might find on other flower delivery websites. However, since the flowers are designed by local florists, we feel that the quality tends to be higher, justifying the price. They also feel a bit more unique and are delivered by the florist, which is a nice if you want to talk to them or potentially use them again. Delivery fees vary depending on which florist you use, but it tends to be around $10-15, and there are also same-day delivery options.
In conclusion, we felt that Bloom Nation offers beautifully designed flower arrangements. Whilst some may find them a little pricey in comparison with several major competitors, we can’t argue with the quality of the products and services on offer. If you’re looking for a cheap bunch of flowers and a few gifts, you may wish to look elsewhere, but if you’re interested in bespoke bouquets and other attractive flower items, we certainly think this site is worth checking out.
