Writing a blog you get offers to do collaborations all the time. Mostly I decline because anything here I have to truly believe in and it has to be the right fit. Once in a while though, something really ticks all the boxes for myself and for the blog. California Blooms is one of those companies. Not only am I glad to share about them, but I'm excited too!
California Blooms is a grower of boutique roses on the Central Coast of California. The roses are grown in an eco-friendly environment using hydroponics and methods passed down a family for seven generations. By growing in small amounts, this family has developed some of the finest roses available and also the longest lasting.
Most roses in the market today come from South America. I love that California Blooms are grown in California and by green growing methods; two things that I like to promote on this blog. They offered to send me roses to see for myself how long they last and their quality.
Roses ordered are hand cut, watered overnight, and actually delivered within 24 hours to your door!
Monday morning last week I found these on my doorstep..
Love when that happens!
I put them in tall vases with water then cut both into shorter bouquets.
The peach roses have the most delicate shade and smell like honeysuckle to me. These look very much like an heirloom rose with their shape and romantic vibe. They are full and lush.
However, unlike many heirloom roses, these pretties haven't lost a petal in one week!
These are gorgeous roses, still like new after 7 days.
I also received a bouquet of my favorite white roses. I'm in love with these!
Just walking by, there's a soft whiff of rose.
I also added a few sprigs of ivy from my yard in the bouquet.
California Blooms has so many lovely varieties of roses starting with 12 stem ($49.00), 18 stem ($59.00) or 24 stem ($69.00) bouquets. For an additional $9.00, a classic vase will be added.
If you are planning on sending a special bouquet for Valentines or just because, I hope you consider using California Blooms. The company is Burlingame based, the roses are grown in California and the methods using hydroponics make for exquisite and enduring roses you won't find anywhere else. They are a California family running a small business and I love supporting that as well! I've gotten to know them and they are lovely people with a great customer service record along with a terrific product.
Right now, just for readers of Northern California Style, they will give a 15% discount if you use code NCS-15 at checkout. I think you'll be impressed by the California Bloom's selection. Not only do they have some unique and modern colors like lavender, green and orange, but also the classics and pretty mixed bouquets as well.
Even those last minute people can order by Friday, February 13 by 1:00 p.m. PST for delivery anywhere in the United States for Valentine's Day!
