California Blooms {Review} The Freshest Boutique-Grown Roses

What is it about roses that gives them the ability to instantly brighten someone's day? Is it the rich color? The deep, sweet scent? The soft, delicate petals? Even though there are so many varieties of flowers out there, there is just something so traditionally beautiful about roses that has caused them to always be one of the most popular flowers around.

But when you walk into a florist, how long have the roses been sitting in their case (not to mention the travel time from the farm to get there)? I don't know about you, but if I send someone flowers, I want to be sure that they are going to be high quality and fresh and will last for as long as possible. And there is no better site to visit to find just that than California Blooms.

Different than a florist, California Blooms ships their gorgeous boutique-grown roses directly from the farm to the lucky recipient, ensuring they will arrive at the optimum level of freshness. So sure that you will be satisfied, California Blooms even offers a full replacement or refund guarantee if you aren't completely happy with the roses you have chosen to send.

But I would find it hard to believe that someone wouldn't be overjoyed to find a delivery from California Blooms at their door. When their roses showed up at our house, I was impressed from the moment I saw and opened the box.

Because I couldn't decide between the eight beautiful color options that California Blooms has available, I went with the ninth: Mixed Long Stemmed Roses. By carrying 53 varieties of roses, California Blooms is able to be selective and ship only those that are at the peak of their growing cycle when you order their mixed bouquet and know that you will receive an amazing array.

And truly, it was.

Due to a combination of the roses being extremely fresh and that they were packed so well (with a gel refrigerant pack underneath to keep them cool), each of the two dozen blooms were pristine and perfect... not to mention that they smelled divine. I loved the variety of colors and how cheerful they were individually or together. Plus, as the days went on, each rose opened more and more to bring a little extra beauty each time I stopped to gaze at them.

Do you have an upcoming occasion or know someone who deserves roses? With all of the meanings behind the colors you can choose to send red roses for romance, pink roses for admiration or yellow roses for friendship... or just forget all that and send whichever color you like best!

For dependable, reliable service and high quality, gorgeous roses, I was really happy with every aspect of California Blooms. With flowers available for delivery the very next day, you know that your lucky recipient will receive a solid or mixed color bouquet of long stemmed roses (one dozen retails for $39 and two dozen for $59) that will last and bring beauty for quite a while.

(Other than the bouquet of mixed roses I was provided from California Blooms, I was not compensated or enticed or to do this review in any way. This review is solely my honest opinion of this website and its beautiful roses.)
