We had such a blast getting to know Katie in the wedding planning process! We designed her brother’s wedding last year and this is just such a sweet family!  Katie and her mom were so organized and we loved helping them create the vision!

We had such a great time at our Blooms and Brews Floral Design class on Friday! We hosted our class at Element 112, during the First Friday Art Walk in Downtown Sylvania. The theme this month was Red, White and Brew and so we wanted to pair with Element so they could provide the burgers, beer and Beautiful Blooms by Jen provided the blooms!

We decided to teach how to design a “just picked” arrangement in a mason jar using many locally grown flowers so that our students would feel comfortable picking flowers out of their garden and filling their mason jar again.

Blooms & Brews- Floral Design class using local and seasonal flowers

The ladies arrived and we had cocktail hour from 5:30-6:30 where we ordered our burgers and beers and mingled.

Blooms & Brews- Floral Design class using local and seasonal flowers

These burgers were so good! Element 112 has a Tuesday night Burger and Beer special you definitely need to check out! Colleen and I recommend the Bubbles beer!

After we enjoyed our burgers, Colleen and I passed out the tools, mason jars, and buckets of flowers. We began our arrangements by adding greenery like a grid. Then we added our larger flowers and finished with our fun textures. It was so fun watching everyone design their arrangements and seeing how they all turned out.

Each bucket had the same flowers, but the sunflowers were either traditional yellow, or a new white sunflower that we just discovered in the last few weeks! With everyone receiving the same instruction, it is so fun to see everyone’s creativity shine through!

Emily was one of my first brides who booked for 2018! We really enjoyed the planning process with her and hope she loves how everything turned out! Her lavender wedding at one of our favorite venues, Nazareth Hall, was beautiful!

We were so excited to offer this super fun wine and design floral design class for the first time right after Mother’s Day where Mom’s and daughters could come as an awesome Mother’s Day gift and make a super fun night out for ladies!  We chose Element 112 because they have fantastic food, drinks and their room, the Periodic Table is a room we’ve used before when delivering flowers for showers, parties and even a small wedding. It was the perfect setting!

The groups of ladies arrived at Element 112, in downtown Sylvania, for cocktail hour! They were served wine and beer and appetizers that were all included in their price of the class. Billie Jo, from Beauty by Billie Jo, was also on hand to help the ladies pick out the perfect lip stick color by LimeLight!  Then once everyone had the perfect lip, they were able to get their picture taken by the Toledo Goof Booth, by Love is Greater Photography!  Then to finish up cocktail hour, they were treated to desserts from So Sweet Pastries!

Then the designing began!  Beautiful Blooms by Jen’s Certified Florist, Jen Linehan instructed the ladies on how to create a pedestal centerpiece in whites, ivories and blushes and we finished them off with draping greenery and a succulent!  It was discussed that this would also be a super fun class for a bride and bridesmaids to come do and design the wedding centerpieces together!

All prepped and ready to go for class!

Cocktail hour while everyone admired their buckets of gorgeous flowers!

Beer and wine were included in the price of this design class. 

After enjoying appetizers from Element 112 and dessert from So Sweet Pastries, we prepared to begin our floral designs. 

We added our hydrangea first, and then our snapdragons. 

What a great Mother’s Day gift!

The last thing we added to our designs was the greenery to fill in any holes we had and to add a romantic element. 

The silver dollar eucalyptus was a hit!

This design class was also a super fun night out for girlfriends!

And Moms, daughters and Coworkers all together!

Love how much fun everyone had!

The finished project!

We had so much fun hosting Colleen’s daughter Madeline’s Daisy troop.  The girls had so much fun creating ice cream sundaes out of flowers! We started out with an ice cream bowl and the girls learned about floral mechanics like creating a design in floral foam which is our water source. Then we added pink carnations, sprinkles and a cherry on top!

Floral sundaes with a cherry on top!  Aren’t they adorable?!

…They loved helping each other….just like good little scouts.

They couldn’t believe they had a glitter red handmade cherry to put on top!…

…Lots of future floral artist in this bunch.

…Daisy troop 12300, we loved having you in as Daisies and can’t wait to teach you more fun things about flowers as Brownies!

We love hosting Girl Scouts of all ages attaining different levels of badges. Call us to coordinate a time to bring your troop over to the shop to work towards their badge. We can help accommodate your budget. Typically classes are under $15 per child. We work with the troop leader to schedule a time that works best with your troop meeting! We are able to travel to your meeting location, but we prefer to host you at our store.  Our spring tends to fill up fast in between our wedding schedule so we advise planning a few months in advance.

We also love to host classes of any kind. As the only Certified Florists in Northwest Ohio, Jen Linehan, CF, CFD or one of our other talented designers will be your class instructor and all classes include all tools and supplies needed to make a gorgeous arrangement.

One of our favorite things at Beautiful Blooms by Jen is when prom couples come in together to buy their corsages and boutonnieres at the same time. Or call separate but give us the name of their dates so we can design their prom flowers as a pair so that everything matches. We also love when we can see the dress so we can make sure we match the look and feel of the dress. Emailing sales@beautifulbloomsbyjen.com is a great way to share the dress!

This is a picture of our Bling Bar where we begin by choosing the keepsake bracelet, then the ribbon colors and flower choices and then the accents like rhinestones and pearls. Gorgeous dress on display is from Blue by Atlas Bridal.

Red and gold boutonniere by Beautiful Blooms by Jen.

We love when customers come in looking for something fun and different, like the floral cuff below!

Red and gold flower cuff for Prom by Beautiful Blooms by Jen.

One of the trends we see year after year are black dresses. This is one of our favorites because we can have tons of fun with the flower color and accents.  We also love when we’re shown the dress and told to do our thing. Then we get to be super creative and use the fun things we’re learning at the floral conferences we attend.

Colorful cuff corsage and matching magnetic boutonniere by Beautiful Blooms by Jen

This year we have been seeing a ton of floral dresses so we’ve been matching the corsage and boutonniere flowers to the dresses.

Hot pink prom corsage with matching magnetic boutonniere by Beautiful Blooms by Jen.

We would love to custom design your corsage or boutonniere for Prom 2018! Please call 419-517-8821 or order online. The sooner the order the better, but we can accommodate typically until the day of Prom as long as you are flexible with the flowers. Please order early for a specific color flower and color choice.

Oh my goodness we had so much fun with this adorable bunny Easter Kid’s Class! What a great turnout over the two days!  These cuties visited Beautiful Blooms by Jen, drew on their bunny face, added the pink nose and bunny tail and planted a bulb pant into their vase. Didn’t they turn out so well?!

Jen’s son, Cooper, was finally old enough to join us for a class!

Directions for class participants- After your bulb flowers are spent, let them dry out and die back. Store them in a dry, cool spot like a garage or basement and then plant them in the ground this fall. The bulbs will develop roots when it gets cold and then bloom again in the spring!

We loved planning Megan and Danny’s wedding because I was married at Stone Ridge too! It’s one of my favorite venues in town!  Megan brought in a picture of the bouquet she loved and asked us to design it. She was so excited when she saw her bouquets, she hugged Sarah, her florist for the day. I love it when I hear stories like that. That’s why we do what we do! To make bride’s dreams come true!

Multiple individuals shook my hand and welcomed me and one even wanted to play me a song on the piano!

We are so excited to share that we were invited to participate in the Hancock Hotel Wedding Open House on Sunday! If you haven’t heard of it yet, it’s the new boutique hotel with 90 rooms and a Mancy’s restaurant. Mancy’s does all the catering and room service which is amazing! You have got to check this gorgeous new Findlay venue out!

We were asked to decorate their Junior Ballroom which is a beautiful ceremony space if you’d like to have your ceremony at the Hancock Hotel as well. Or this is a room available to be rented for bridal showers and smaller events. The drapery is so pretty that we used it as a backdrop for our altar. Rust and Lace Rentals provided us with this elegant buffet to design on.

Trio of floating candles and a hydrangea make a perfect accent to the aisle and then can be transferred to the ballroom for table centerpieces!
