Let The Parties Begin!

 It's that time of year again when we make time to celebrate the wonderful things in life with family and friends. And what a better way to celebrate than by having a party! But we all know that no party is complete without flowers!
 Floral centerpieces can completely change the mood in a room. They can create romance, excitement, and anticipation, just by being around. Every party deserves a little decoration, don't you think?
So make sure you give us a call when your planning your holiday get together. Because it's not just the flowers that make the difference it's the creativity and ingenuity of our fabulous designers that make everything so wonderful. We always say, if you can dream it we can do it, but we like to dream too, so come on in and let us help you plan your fabulous holiday party!

Happy 10 Year Anniversary ... to US!

If there is one thing we ladies (and gentlemen) at The Blooming Idea know how to do, it's party! 
 This year we celebrated our 10 year anniversary with our annual holiday open house. It was fun to see friends and family, loyal customers and new neighbors come and celebrate with us.
 Plus it's always fun to kick off the holiday season and decorate the shop in all the Christmas and Holiday goodies!
 If you weren't able to make it over for the open house make sure you come by and pick up some fabulous decor items for your home!

 Thank you for supporting us for the last 10 years, we are looking forward to another fabulous 10! Happy Holidays!

Bridal Bouquets of October

 We love posting weddings in their entirety, but sometimes it's fun to see pieces of the weddings we've done side by side. One of my favorite pieces to compare are the bridal bouquets. (white hydrangea, white roses, green miniature hydrangea, white miniature calla lilies, green hypericum berries.)
 It's fun to see different trends, colors and styles of weddings all held within a short amount of time. (Pink roses and white wax flower)
 This soft and romantic bridal bouquet of white hydrangea and various sizes of pink roses smelled heavenly.
The fun contrast in colors of this bouquet caught the attention of the brides guests. (Plum lisianthus, lavender roses, tinted green hydrangea, plum stock, and green maranthus.)
 I love the timelessness of a fabulous cascade bouquet and this one stole the show with white dendrobium orchid blooms strung along bear grass mixed with white roses, calla lilies and touches of greenery.
This mix of miniature calla lilies is a striking design of beautiful line, simplistic texture and contrasting color. We love weddings!!!

Sparkling Roses

 Tablescapes are one of our many specialties. With esparance roses, antique green hydrangeas, miniature garden roses and green hanging amaranthus they were the perfect combination of soft, romantic colors for a very romantic eventing.
Using silver pedestal vases for the arrangements and silver goblets for the candles heightened the luxurious ambiance of the dinner. 
 The men's boutonnieres were spiced up a little with hot pink wire wrapped around the rose bud and swirled around the top. The wire is a fun metalic accent, helping to make something very traditional a little more modern.

Don't you love the canopy effect you get with a high and low tablescape? I know I do!

A Few Fabulous Fall Centerpieces

 Grand is always more fun! These centerpieces used at various events at The Club at Carlton Woods were spectacular focal points; with vibrant colors, wonderful movement, and amazing flowers they are a feast for the eyes.
 I'm a sucker for rich fall tones, exemplified by this stunning arrangement. The chocolate cymbidium in the vase accented by orange pebbles and topped with butterscotch football mums, orange lilies, burgundy cushions and amaranthus. Ahhh, it just screams fall, and I love it!
Happy Fall!

Spook-tacular Arrangements

 Halloween is such a fun holiday. With vibrant oranges, lime greens, plum and black the contrast between the shades is fun and slightly mysterious.
 Each year at the Carlton Woods they throw a fabulous Halloween Party for the Children in the neighborhood. So we like to get a little spooky with our flowers.
Plus it's a fabulous excuse to incorporate candy into our arrangements. And honestly, who doesn't love candy?
