Love fresh flowers, but don't have the time to go to the flower market or corner deli every week? Enter H.BLOOM, an online floral service that delivers gorgeous professionally designed floral arrangements to your door for a fraction of what a boutique florist would charge.
How it works: First, pick from H.BLOOM's six style collections, which range from $35-85 per bundle (I'm personally loving the Encapsulated Orchids). Then choose whether you'd like to receive an arrangement weekly, biweekly, or monthly. And that's it! H.BLOOM also gives you the back-story on the blossoms used in each bouquet, so you always know what you're looking at (and can take note of what you might want at your wedding). H.BLOOM also just recently launched a bridal registry section on their website, so if you already have all the kitchen doodads and silver-plated frames you need, this is the perfect way for guests to help you add some style to your home after the wedding.
H.BLOOM currently delivers to Manhattan, Brooklyn, Long Island City, Forrest Hills, Hoboken, and Jersey City, and starting in December 2010, H.BLOOM will also deliver in Washington, D.C. —Caitlin Palmer, Editorial Intern, Brides Local Magazines
