What is BOKAY?

Founded by a fourth-generation florist, BOKAY™ was created to give you complete control of your flower arrangements by letting you pick every aspect from the flowers and greens to the colors and vase! 

There’s no collection of pre-made arrangements and no questionnaire to try to match your style. Plus, we have honest pricing, so you only pay for what you create and order based on your selections. 

Whether you design something whimsical or traditional, vibrant or subdued, or a completely new combination no one’s ever made, each design is your vision brought to life. Plus, with BOKAY™, what you order is actually what you get. 

Made with farm-fresh flowers from around the world, your BOKAY™ is assembled by hand with care in the U.S.  — then delivered to your recipient with love. 

As a florist, BOKAY’s founder Kevin McCarthy realized there were two main problems plaguing the flower industry today.

Problem: Flowers have lost their personal touch.

Everyone loves flowers, but each person is unique. Everyone has their own style, preferences, and tastes. Why should the flowers you send to someone special be pre-made and the same as one sent to thousands of others? Your recipient is unique and their flower arrangement should be too.

Solution

Enter BOKAY™ Flowers. Instead of trying to search an online catalog looking for flowers that you hope someone will like, BOKAY™ Flowers lets you design flowers specifically for the person you're sending them to. Does she love pink but hate purple? Does he like roses but can’t stand sunflowers? We make it simple - you create the design uniquely for your recipient and they’ll know you took the time and effort to make something special just for them!

Problem: What you order is not what you get.

After scrolling through hundreds of options online, you finally find an arrangement that you like. The vase, the colors, the flowers — they all look pretty nice. The price isn’t too bad either. You place your order. It arrives soon, but you don’t see a picture of the finished product before the flowers are delivered to your recipient. Then when the arrangement arrives, it looks nothing like what you ordered. You’re disappointed and so are they. When you order from hundreds of pre-made choices online, you rarely know what you’re actually going to get. Our competitors may not be as forthcoming about what flowers they have, or if they are even the ones designing the flowers. Many online shops outsource your order to someone else, and they make your arrangements with the flowers and vase they have available — not what you ordered. If you’re lucky, you order from a company that actually designs their own products; however, oftentimes they’ll substitute another flower, color, or vase without your knowledge.

Solution

At BOKAY™, we think there’s a better way. What you order is what you get. We carry thousands of the freshest stems from around the world. If for some reason the flower you selected isn’t available or doesn’t meet our standards, we’ll let you know and offer a substitute - or your money back. We believe you should get exactly what you pay for and what you design.

Our mission is simple — Deliver Love.

What’s in a name?

BO-KAY, BOO-KAY, B-OKAY... What’s right? Well, even if you can’t pronounce it, you’ll love what we do. We believe that flowers can make everything Be OKAY. BOKAY™. The name is also an homage to the beginnings of our company. All the way back in 1952, Bud McCarthy founded Bud’s Bokay Shop in Scranton, Pennsylvania, where he worked with his father to create fun and unique arrangements for customers. His grandson, Kevin McCarthy, continues the family legacy with BOKAY™. With the same creative and “punny” spirit, BOKAY™ embraces its origins while using the latest technology to design unique flowers for everyone.
