It’s a work holiday today, so I’m spending the day in my apartment catching up on emails, cooking, and tidying the place. To brighten up the space, I decided to treat myself to a bouquet of flowers. (Yes, I sent myself flowers.) I ordered a beautiful bouquet of tulips from BloomThat, a flower delivery service in San Francisco. I heard of BloomThat kind of accidentally – I overheard someone on BART talking about the service and he seemed so enthusiastic I had to check it out for myself. The order process was incredibly easy – just choose from a seasonal selection of arrangements and tell them when/where you’d like them delivered.
Their flowers are delivered by bike messenger and are packaged in recycled burlap donated by Weaver’s Coffee, an organic, fair trade coffee roaster. I received the blooms in under 90 minutes and they were incredibly fresh. This will be perfect the next time I need a last minute gift (or when I feel like treating myself again…).
