The French sensibilities of founders’ Olivier Plusquellec and Louis Brunet translate into their elegantly wrapped arrangements of eco-friendly flowers. Every bouquet is hand-tied and then packaged in a stylish purple box with a single rose on top and sent out for delivery (same day in New York and Chicago).

Due to the current state orders, Blossr has temporarily suspended operations.

This New York delivery service isn’t about over-the-top arrangements. Instead, Blossr’s motto is that one should experience flowers in their purest form: naked and unarranged. So, consider this the perfect treat for minimalists. To order, choose from a small but gorgeous range of buds or greenery like the Orange or Dusty Pink Ranunculus, Salmon or Deep Red Anthuriums, Sweet Pea or Monstera Leaves. Blossr’s blooms start at an affordable $30 and come with a white vase (small, medium or large) of your choice. Deliveries go out every Friday, so get that #FloralFriday hashtag ready and make sure to tag @blossrnyc on the ’gram.
