I recently received a bouquet from my kind friends over at Olyve, an online floral delivery service, and I loved it so much that I had to share it here on the blog. They sent me their “Olyve + Olivia” arrangement, consisting of pink O’Hara roses in a fun striped vase. The roses were the prettiest that I have ever seen, with a sweet scent to match – seriously, I’ve never encountered roses that smelled this good. Plus they were the most perfect shade of blush pink!
Olyve arrangements come in this gorgeous signature box. It was such a delight to find it sitting on my doorstep (especially since I’d forgotten that it was coming). I had a hard time getting rid of the box, it was so pretty!
The package is conveniently closed with Velcro, so it’s easy to just open it up and slide the flowers right out, already in their vase and protected with that gray foam stuff. There’s also a spout in the middle of the arrangement that you just pour water into to keep them fresh – so easy. One word to the wise though – make sure you put a dish under the vase, because some of the water leaked out of mine.
Pink O’Haras are known for their high petal count – so pretty, aren’t they? A nice upgrade from my typical bodega flowers!
Olyve is currently delivering in NYC and Miami with more cities hopefully to follow! All of the arrangements come in fun, pretty vases, and they’re just very charming and unique (I love how bright and happy the Olyve + James is) – a perfect gift!
