About Bloom Box

The concept behind Bloom Box is unique to other florist shops out there. They offer 1 type of flower arrangement each day, so that customers can send it to friends, colleagues, family members and loved ones without the hassle of choosing for 100 different arrangements. The Bloom Box was born out of the notion that flower delivery need not be expensive, or reserved only for special occasions and wrapped in paper. At 3pm everyday, Bloom Box’s website and social media will reveal the following day’s arrangement and often posts sneak peeks earlier in the day as well. No matter the occasion, whether it be to connect, congratulate or purely to comfort, The Bloom Box aims to be an accessible flower option to all.

About The Co-Founders

Cindia, after 5 years as a management consultant, wanted to try something new. With an eye for detail and a business oriented nature, The Bloom Box was created.  She spends most of her time at the floral studio, where she sources for unique flowers and does most of her business development. 

Employing her passion and creative finesse, Ruth, who was formerly an educator is now in charge of designing the iconic everyday look of the Bloom Box. Her affection and tender elegance goes into each Bloom Box. Its uniqueness is reflected into each box she creates, making them incomparable. 

Convenient Bloom Box Design

The distinctive structure of the bloom box is designed in a way so that it makes it easy to carry around. This was done in an attempt to ensure that it was hassle-free on the receivers end. The bloom box comes in 3 sizes; The regular, Bloom Box Plus as well as the Baby Bloom Box. In an effort to make Bloomboxes more affordable and accessible to all, only one flower arrangement is available each day. This means that customers will not be able to choose their own flowers. Despite this, each bloom box that has been specially crafted everyday has been up to standard and carefully crafted up to our satisfaction. 

Fresh Flowers

The flower arrangements incorporate the use of a wide variety of flowers, offering a unique design every day. Some examples of the flowers used include Nightingale Purple Rose, Carnations, Pom, Peacock Purple, and Bunny Tail. The flowers used are fresh flowers imported regularly and some species of flowers they offer are more fragile and unpredictable than others such as Hydrangeas, gerberas, and dusty miller. This would require the receivers of the flowers to ensure that their flower care knowledge is up to date. However, they can accommodate customers in the event that timeline is of essence for them. Just drop them an email and they will do what they can to provide more information and make the necessary changes. Most of the fresh flowers for the bloom box lasts up to 3-5 days, and it is important to take the necessary steps to ensure that your flowers can be kept alive for as long as possible. Important things to take note is that your flowers should be kept away from exposed areas that have direct sunlight. Storing them in cool conditions and making sure to water the sponge at the bottom of the box daily will keep the flowers fresh and beautiful. 

Presentation

The overall aesthetic of each bloom box is consistent with the choice of flowers, arrangement and shades of flowers. The bloom box design ensures that it does not take away the attention of the flowers inside, but instead amplifies it and allows the flowers to be more prominent. 

Available Add-Ons

The Bloom Box also offers an additional finishing touch with a 15-inch air filled balloon with 3 different greetings available for customers to choose from. Greetings available are “Happy Birthday,” “I love you,” and “Congrats.” They are also currently offering a graduation special bloom box which includes the regular bloom box, along with a teddy bear donning the graduation cap. It makes for a good graduation gift because it is essentially a 2-in-1 gift. Graduations call for flowers and teddy bears, and the Graduation Special Bloom Box offers both. Many have expressed their satisfaction with the Graduation Special box because it was convenient and easy to carry around along with other received gifts on the day itself. It’s also a head turner and the envy of many during the ceremony. 

Another special bloom box currently being offered is a chocolate bloom box. In collaboration with Awfully Chocolate, they have come up with a box that is a combination of preserved or dried flowers and chocolates that make for a great gift for the sweet tooths out there. The chocolate included in the bloom box is one of Awfully Chocolate’s bestsellers: Caramel Brittle and Seasalt (90g). Flowers included are: Everlasting Rose, Preserved Moss, Preserved Hydrangeas, Cotton Plant, Dried Baby’s Breath, Caspia. Using the preserved or dried flowers allows them to last up to a year, making it a good decorative item in households, and does not require as much upkeep as compared to fresh flowers. 

Placing Orders

The website’s interface is easy to navigate and due to the nature of the daily bloom box available, there is no influx of options which will make it less complicated for the customers. The option for the add-on balloon is also made available for every purchase during selection so it is easier for customers. All they need to do is select the product, sign in, provide the address and make payment.

Delivery

Free islandwide delivery is available for all orders. In the event that the recipient is not at the given location, the courier will leave it at the doorstep or with a neighbour (for homes) and with a colleague or the reception for offices. A $10 redirection fee will be charged for a second delivery should there be no one to leave the bloom box with. Same day delivery will be available with orders being placed by 1pm on the day itself. Although there are no specific timing options for customers to choose from, the most efficient delivery route has already been taken into account so customers need not worry. An email notification will be sent out upon delivery so do look out for that.
