With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, people have thoughts of what they should get their loved ones. Ideas float around in your head from stuffed animals to chocolate to jewelry, but you automatically leave out flowers because you never get what you pay for and they’re only personable if you deliver them yourself. Now, through a new company called Ode à la Rose based in New York City, you can make sure you are there when your loved one receives their flowers every single time.
The two Frenchmen, who are revolutionizing flower deliveries, are Oliver and Louis—and being from the “City of Love,” they felt it was their duty to revamp the system. With Ode à la Rose, not only do you purchase a high-quality bouquet of flowers that are hand-crafted by floral experts, but you are given the opportunity to send your loved one a video message instead of the typical card—making your delivery more personable than ever.
“We created Ode à la Rose because we couldn’t find breathtaking arrangements anywhere,” says Olivier and Louis’ ‘About Us’ card, which is sent with every arrangement. “At Ode à la Rose, each bouquet is lovingly designed in our workshop by trained florists who have mastered the French art of bouquet design. We sincerely hope you love the roses as much as we do!”
After you’ve picked which flower arrangement to send online, Ode à la Rose will prompt you to checkout. Each arrangement comes with a travel fresh vase and food for your flowers. However, during the checkout process, you can select a glass vase to go with your bouquet for an additional touch. It is here that you will get instructions on how to record your video message. When Ode à la Rose’s florists are finished designing your arrangement, they will send you a picture of what it looks like before it is delivered.
Unlike other flower deliveries where the flowers come uncovered, Ode à la Rose’s flowers come to your doorstep in a decorated box, which keeps the arrangement intact during delivery travels. When the receiver opens the box and pulls out their bouquet, a card is attached with instructions on how to download the recorded message.
To view the message, the receiver needs to download Ode à la Rose’s app, which is available on iOS and Android phones. Once the app is download, the person can scan the QR code of enter the given ID number to view the message. When the message is done playing, the receiver can send a thank you video or picture message back to his/her sender.
Ode à la Rose is undoubtedly shifting the expectations of florists in the New York City area. With highly qualified experts creating your arrangements, being in the know every step of the way and even getting to personalize your card even more so, you will no longer need to worry about whether or not you’re getting your moneys worth when purchasing flowers.
