How can we change the way people send flowers to others in a more personal way? These days flowers have a standardized meaning behind them. For example, a dozen red roses is a symbol of love and passion; so naturally on Valentine’s Day, everyone and their mothers are getting the same bouquets. What if we can change this by rethinking how a bouquet can embody the person receiving it? Because everyone deserves their own unique flowers for their own unique self.
Bud is an app that allows users to order flowers for virtually anyone; friends, family, significant others — even themselves as long as a delivery address is provided. Most bouquets today are made with no innovation, resulting in impersonal floral arrangements. Bud revolutionizes how bouquets are made by tailoring the arrangement to the recipient based on their personality. Users will answer a set of questions that helps the florist of their choice decide what bouquet suits the receiver best. Because florists have experience and knowledge in textures, color combinations, and the overall meanings of different flowers, they will take on the responsibility of deciding how each bouquet can represent the receiver, therefore taking away the stress of the users who don’t know what flowers to get. Other floral sites make bouquets based on the sender rather than the recipient, when in actuality flowers should celebrate the person who is receiving it. The ways which we can describe our feelings are infinite, therefore our ways of showing them should be endless.
