bouquet subscription

happy halloween! soooo our bouquet promotion last week was such a hit we've decided, by popular demand, to not only consider running the promotion again soon (stay tuned) but to also start a biweekly and weekly floral subscription for home and office deliveries. too many of you requested we send bouquets to their homes for weekend flowers so we're running a test drive and seeing where this takes us!

Details and order information can be found here on our website, but we'll spell them out in this post for easy reading: 

  1. if you'd like to send a bouquet as a gift to someone else, you can do so by clicking here. these bouquets are $45, plus delivery, and are delivered with a beautiful vase. the style of bouquet available for delivery is dependent on the flowers available at market that morning (requests are not permitted). we are currently only delivering to Miami-Dade county on mondays, wednesdays, and fridays, depending on order processing, but can accommodate other days and other south florida counties, such as Broward and Palm Beach county, for an additional charge. email us at sayhello@houseoflilac.com for more information.
  2. if you'd like a floral bouquet delivered to your home or office on a biweekly or weekly basis for personal enjoyment, you can purchase a subscription on a month to month basis by clicking here
  • style of bouquet available for delivery is dependent on the flowers available at market that morning - we're sorry but requests are not permitted at this time.
  • subscription payments must be made upfront and are nonrefundable for that month. meaning, once you order, and once the morning of the first delivery arrives, there is no turning back until your subscription is over. 
  • subscriptions are renewable on a month by month basis.
  • please note, while our gift bouquets are delivered in vase, our subscription bouquets are not delivered in vase! as such, we require signatures for all subscription deliveries and encourage all delivery addresses arrange for someone to receive the bouquets.
Bi-weekly subscription. 
  • delivered the first and third Wednesday or Friday of every month.
  • single bouquet (enough florals for one three inch diameter standard vase): $35/week. $70/month. 
  • double bouquet (enough florals for two three inch diameter standard vases): $40/week. $80/month.

Weekly Subscription

  • delivered the first and third Wednesday or Friday of every month.
  • single bouquet (enough florals for one three inch diameter standard vase): $25/week. $100/month.
  • double bouquet (enough florals for two three inch diameter standard vases): $35/week. $140/month.

In other HOL news, our holiday gift box collection is FINALLY debuting next week! 

I'm still reading the same books listed in my last post, which should come as no surprise because, a. that was last week, and b. i'm pregnant and fall asleep after reading 2 pages of any book, riveting or not. i'm loving holiday scented candles already and adele 25 (i attended her concert last week and am reobsessed). 

dinner last week: please make this sundried tomato pasta by whatsgabycooking. omg. we ate it for three days. also, ayesha curry's brown sugar chicken in the seasoned life was delicious. 

dinner this week: sunday: mahi tacos; monday: n/a, halloween!; tuesday: chicken vaca frita (shredded chicken breast, cooked and baked with a ton of lime), via my husband; wednesday: ayesha curry's meatloaf (if it isn't obvious already, I totally recommend buying this cookbook); thursday: tomato/basil pasta with burrata

until next week! xx

bouquet promotion + holiday trunk show

so let me make your week. (you're welcome).

1. we're running a hol bouquet buy one, get one free promotion this entire week. meaning, you send your favorite person our $45 bouquet and you get to send a COMPLETELY FREE bouquet to your next favorite person. i repeat, send two bouquets for the price of one! we will NEVER run this promotion again so I suggest you jump on it if you're reading this and spread the word! a little bit about our bouquets and our bouquet deliveries: 

  • what: our fresh floral bouquets come wrapped in kraft paper, tied with twine and a small message card, inside a white, ceramic hobnail vase. our bouquets change daily, so bouquets will vary depending on order date this week (we only deliver fresh florals). deliveries will take place wednesday, friday, and saturday of this week - although we can deliver on days not mentioned for an extra price (see our FAQs for more information on deliveries). 
  • when: for any and all bouquet orders placed from october 23-october 28. 
  • why: our bouquets being a new venture, we're eager to increase bouquet awareness, just in time for the holidays! the more people we send to, the more people know, the more people love them. 
  • price: $45, excluding delivery fees (for first bouquet - second is free). 

ORDER YOUR BOUQUETS HERE. PLACE AN ORDER FOR ONE BOUQUET AND IN THE MESSAGE BOX, INCLUDE TWO SHORT MESSAGES AND TWO ADDRESSES. WE'LL CONFIRM DELIVERY DATE AND MESSAGE/DELIVERY INFORMATION WITHIN A FEW HOURS. 

2. this year, our holiday trunk show is scheduled for Friday, December 2, and Saturday, December 3, from 10am-6pm (location currently in the works). we throw this event with Ana Mari Ortega every year and it's always a pretty fabulous event. it's an all day holiday shopping affair (meaning stop by whenever you want) with snacks, holiday gift box/bouquet/wreath pre-orders, and jewelry/handbag sales. we're offering free delivery on any orders placed at the holiday trunk show so make sure to stop by for some holiday cheer. :)

3. onto more personal discussions,

  1. I am reading: Eligible (yes, still reading this. it's actually a great book I just juggle three books at a time and am working my way through it. would highly suggest if you're a huge Pride & Prejudice fan - modern take on the novel); Magnolia (because i'm obsessed with Chip and Joanna Gaines and their relationship and journey); and the Law of Attraction (i'm always reading a book like this - helps the soul. if you'd ever like to discuss the law of attraction, seriously email me - it's one of my favorite deep conversations). 
  2. Dinner this week: Sunday: risi e fagioli; Monday: ground beef picadillo (personal recipe); Tuesday: brown sugar chicken from the Seasoned Life; Wednesday: ground turkey tacos a la my husband; Thursday: sun dried tomato pasta with chicken meatballs from what's gaby cooking (great cooking blog). 
  3. our house renovations: follow me on instagram and stay tuned with my home reno stories. getting there!!
  4. finally, having a one year old is more difficult than a newborn (fyi). which makes me zero nervous about having my daughter in a few months. so there's a silver lining to having a second child. 

update on the recipes from the last weekly dinner i posted about...

Sunday: Ina Garten's spaghetti and meatballs - THE BEST. ALWAYS. HIGHLY SUGGEST. 

Monday: traditional cuban chicken vaca frita - ALWAYS DELIVERS. VERY GOOD. I'D BE HAPPY TO SHARE THIS RECIPE IF ANYONE WOULD LIKE IT.

Tuesday: pre-made turkey burger patties from the Whole Foods butcher - EHHH. WE DON'T HAVE A GRILL YET SO THIS WAS OK. 

Wednesday: chicken marsala (a friend's recipe). THIS WAS VERY GOOD. I'D BE HAPPY TO SHARE THE RECIPE IF ANYONE WOULD LIKE TO MAKE THIS!

Thursday: shrimp and grits from Ayesha Curry's cookbook. THE BABY LOVED THIS. AND IS A GREAT (AND EASY) SHRIMP AND GRITS RECIPE FOR HOME COOKING.

fall + winter gift boxes and bouquets

you guys,

it's been some time since I've been on here - totally not ok but there are good reasons: 1) we found out we were pregnant again right after my last blog post (unplanned but always welcome, of course) and 2) we've spent the summer working on a new office, new collection, new brand image, new website!!!, and our newest addition, our bouquets. out with the old and in with the new. 

re: our new website. it's meant to be much more user friendly for gifters and we're hoping you love it as much as we do. feedback is always welcome!

re: the new collection - our new boxes are probably everything we've ever wanted them to be. it's pretty amazing to finally see your vision come to life so it's a big day for the house of lilac crew. thank you to those who tolerated me throughout this endeavor. you are loved more than you know! our new boxes are simple, categorized, and suit all the giftees in all the land. shop our foodie gift boxes (chocolate, cookies, caramels, cookies and cream bars - yes, this is real and they're the most delicious thing i've ever had), our hers (think hosting, spa, beauty), our his (jerky, bbq sauce, post shave), and of course, our baby boxes.  

small sweet box

 small baby girl box

all of our boxes come with your choice of fresh flower bouquet or planted succulent (shipped orders will be shipped with a dried flower selection in lieu of the flower bouquet). we're offering local hand deliveries monday, wednesday, and friday (dependent on order date) but non-delivery dates can be requested at an additional fee. and of course, as per usual, we're shipping nationwide within two business days of order processing. you can read more about our new delivery schedule in our frequently asked questions page. 

and finally, to the main event: our daily fresh floral bouquets, wrapped in kraft paper, for $45 dollars, and yes, our white hobnail ceramic vase (as seen below) and a custom message is included. die. introducing the gift box bouquets and the floral bouquets of the day has been a brand vision and goal of mine for some time, said introduction finally topping off House of Lilac gifts as depicted in my current creative state of mind (this will change in due time, of course). the somewhat increasing flower selection at whole foods and the desire to gift something easy (and on the affordable side) led me to assemble my own whimsical bouquets for some time (think dinner parties or small tokens of appreciation). but once i decided to incorporate floral bouquets into our gift boxes this past summer, the decision to launch our $45 bouquets was a no brainer. the catch - bouquets of the day will vary depending on flowers available at market that day - so flowers can't be requested. we're not trying to set ourselves apart as florists - we're just really elevated die-hard gifters with a keen eye for style and practicality. mic drop.

to celebrate our launch, we're running a special 20% off promotion for all clients (either use code loyal20 at checkout or mention loyal20 on all custom orders - which reminds me...). 

don't forget custom ordering! it's still our bread and butter and our favorite creative outlet. so if you're getting married, gifting on the corporate side (clients, donors, marketing efforts and events), just want to gift something a little more unique than what you see in our fall+winter collection or maybe mix and match our gift items in your own gift box, contact us at sayhello@houseoflilac.com. 

also, for snippets of our new office layout, follow us on instagram! we're always posting stories and pretty awesome photos. :)
