Bryan Burkhart is the entrepreneur behind HBloom. A subscription based floral service that delivers right to you home. They do corporate and residential. The flower market is a huge business doing almost $30billion dollars last year in the US alone. Meaning that there is plenty of room for new players.
Bryan contacted me about his business and asked me to try it out. Last night I got my first floral arrangements. The flowers come already arranged with a plastic bag filled with water tied tightly to the stems with a piece of nice twine. The vase already has the wrapped leaves around it and a bag of the formula that allows the flowers to last longer. I opened the formula, poured it in the vase, filled it with room temperature water and then placed the flowers in the vase (sans plastic). I followed the directions. Next week another batch of flowers will replace these that are made for the exact same vase. As in do not throw out the vase. I assume you could send them a picture of your vase and they could create something specific for that too.
Price wise, very good for the high end arrangement I got. I certainly love the simplicity of it. Shows up on the requested day. Is a great gift for someone and yourself. Give someone 3 months of flowers. Just some thoughts.
I will post the arrangements I get over the next month. Fresh flowers, hand delivered to my door that are well priced and beautiful. Kind of can't beat that.
