When Bouq Box Flowers opened in Burr Ridge in February, owner Peter Sadler and his business partner Lizzie Zimmer decided to pursue a unique floral mission: promoting the “love of giving,” even when it comes to rewarding oneself.
“Our goal was to open a business that is a significant departure from most regular flower shops,” says Sadler, a London native who has brought his marketing skills to our area and combined those with Zimmer’s talent and passion for floral beauty. “We pride ourselves on not just being another flower shop, and our sales reflect that.”
While Bouq Box assists in brightening personal events such as weddings and showers, its passionate designers will provide counsel on any and every flower need. Bouq Box has built an environment and ambience that excites the senses of sight, sound, smell, and touch, providing customers with the room to browse many gift products and services in addition to their floral spread.
What should a customer expect upon walking into Bouq Box?
According to Sadler, the shop is “a spacious, welcoming, relaxing, and interesting environment where customers can enjoy the love of giving by finding the right product for others—or themselves—assisted by our friendly staff to make their experience an enjoyable one.”
This month, the experts at Bouq Box promise a month of extensive choices when it comes to styles, colors, and flower stems.
“Arrangements for September can include anything from classic styles in hot pink, orange, yellow, and white to mauve, cream, burgundy, and purple for more rustic and autumnal looks. A variety of fresh stem choices are available but you can never go wrong with classics like roses and hydrangeas,” says Zimmer.
As fall approaches, Bouq Box staff also encourages you to experiment with texture and various greenery to add more interest to your floral arrangements. The specialists at Bouq Box are looking to add fruit products such as pears and apples to arrangements to make a statement this fall.
“Some of the favorite types of floral products we use in September are dahlias, roses, coxcomb, thistles, ferns, berries, and a variety of eucalyptus,” Zimmer explains, noting the exciting floral possibilities Bouq Box offers.
Should you be planning an event, Bouq Box has created a comfortable, secluded consultation area for complimentary discussions. The expert staff promises a customer-centric ethos and a team ready and excited to illuminate any event or occasion across the Chicago area.
To complement your arrangement, Bouq Box also provides a selection of fresh living plants, artificial designs such as wreaths, swags, and centerpieces, and an extensive non-floral selection. Choose from high-end international brands of glassware, pottery, chocolate, candles, and table décor to accompany your floral treasure.
“We like having fun along with answering any specific requests customers may have,” Sadler explains. “We want our customers to enjoy themselves too and leave with a smile, if nothing else.”
And that is how the Bouq Box experts themselves experience the “love of giving.”
