Queensmith Loves | Bloom & Wild
Bloom and Wild is taking the flower industry by storm, totally reinventing the way bouquets are delivered to today’s super-busy, plant-loving lot. We’ve all missed a delivery due to work or our hectic schedules, only to be left a note saying they’ll ‘attempt to deliver tomorrow’, at an equally inconvenient time. Enter Bloom & Wild, the letterbox flower delivery service.
Where Tech Meets Beauty
Yes, the UK have had a number of major online florists to contend with before, but none so tech-savvy nor trend-savvy as Bloom & Wild. As co-founder Aron explains, previous decades of flower-buying experiences have been pretty poor - ‘there hasn’t been much innovation in the past 20 years’. Founded by Aron Gelbard and Ben Stanway, the online florist has become a household name among flower-giving millennials and busy professionals, optimising their website and mobile apps to order stunning bouquets with just a few clicks. Genius. A Bloom & Wild bunch is always as fresh as possible, lasting for days upon days. And we can vouch for that - our most recent bunch lasted a near two weeks! By intercepting the flower supply chain and cutting out the middlemen, Bloom & Wild can deliver flowers within 3 days of being cut, as opposed to the industry standard of 10 days. And perhaps most crucially, Aron and Ben developed the perfect letterbox-sized vessel to deliver your blooms, and thanks to the 1st day and 3rd day plant food sachets that give the flowers a new lease of life, you’ll be able to leave your flowers on the doormat until you return home.
It's All In The Details
Bloom & Wild certainly don’t believe in simply chucking a few flowers together, and instead take time to design each of their seasonal bouquets to the finest of details. This season, we’re loving the strong, sunset pinks of the Ruby bouquet, part of the hand-tied bouquets range, or if you’re after a handy letterbox bunch, consider the soft tones and verdant greens of the Spring Meadow. If vivid, colourful flowers aren’t for you, check out the Fern, a low-maintenance and long-lasting fern plant that comes with a pop-up rose gold pot (and yes, it’ll fit through the letterbox!).
If the flowers weren't pretty enough, the bespoke presentation boxes, accompanying cards and instructions are adorned with beautiful dainty illustrations. The super contemporary and sweet aesthetic of Bloom & Wild are what have made the brand an Instagram sensation, with over twenty-two-thousand #bloomandwild posts brightening our feeds. We personally think florals and diamonds make for a pretty great photo moment.. What do you think? Make sure to snap your sparkles and blooms, and tag us @queensmiths.
Bloom & Wild offer free next day delivery, extremely handy for those awkward times you remember a birthday last minute. A number of the bouquets come with other little treats like chocolates and cards you can personalise. If you want the flowery goodness of Bloom & Wild all to yourself, you can purchase a 3, 6 or 12 month subscription package, where you’ll be sent a different bouquet every time. Idyllic!
