Flowers from Costco
I ordered Valentines’s Day flowers a month early this year, so I could experience the blooms myself before sharing this awesome deal with you! We have been using Costco’s floral department to send flowers to family members for a couple years now (and have always received rave reviews), but I have never purchased flowers to be sent to our home. With Valentine’s coming up, I thought this would be a great time to test out the floral delivery service start to finish!
NOTE – We purchase their bouquets in store regularly and LOVE them!
I chose the 50-Stem Bi-Color Roses, and they are even prettier than the picture online. These cost me only $43 DELIVERED, which you know is a really unbelievable price if you’ve ever purchased flowers online to be delivered.
Valentine’s Day Flowers
They do have a smaller selection of options they are offering for Valentine’s Day for a little bit higher of a price. For example, the roses I ordered are $49.99 instead of $39.99 and they have a smaller selection of colors – unfortunately the color I chose is not one of them. Still, though, these prices are really, really good.
What to Expect
They came well packaged and in tight buds, so I think they will last quite awhile. They also come in two different stem lengths, which makes arranging them a little bit easier. I still recommend trimming the ends so the stems are able to drink the water better, though! Overall, I’m just really impressed with the quality. I thought I would need to run to the grocery store to buy greenery to fill in, but with 50 roses that is completely unnecessary. They filled up my largest vase beautifully. You can also include a gift message just like any of the typical flower delivery services.
The only downside I can see to ordering these flowers is they don’t come arranged in a vase. The recipient will need to use a vase they currently have on hand. However I would venture to say that most women who have received flowers once or twice probably have a vase they are itching to use again stuffed in a cabinet somewhere! You just may want to be cognizant of this if you are sending the flowers to someone at work, or anywhere they might not have access to a vase (but let’s be real – women are resourceful!).
The roses come in two bunches of 25, so if you have two special people in your life that live close by, you could have them sent to yourself and split them up into two different arrangements. The smaller bunches would be really nice with a little bit of greenery or baby’s breath from the floral department in your local grocery store. Ladies, you could even split the 50 roses into smaller bunches and give to your best GALentines!
Other Flower Options
Prefer something that is a little less hands on for the recipient? You can order pre-made arrangements (with vases) from Costco as well, just be sure to read the “features” section on the listing, so you know what you are getting.
A few words from the Marcus, the chief flower purchaser in our family (who is off the hook this Valentine’s Day): “I’ve used just about every online floral delivery company out there, and this is hands down the best deal I’ve ever found on flowers. And the fact that this price includes shipping. It can’t be beat.”
