FLOWERS ARE HERE TO STAY: In 2020, the pandemic had many of us craving beauty—something to uplift and enliven us in a time of uncertainty, isolation, and fear. The floral subscription box market had already seen a 6.7% increase in sales from 2018 to 2019 and when the pandemic hit, companies like The Bouqs and UrbanStems exploded. Consumers began supporting more locally-owned flower businesses and spending more time outside in their gardens.
