I live, eat, breathe, Beautiful Blooms by Jen. It’s been my entire life since 2008 when I began my company out of my house. Fast forward a few years and it’s been 7 years this January that we’ve had our full retail shop open!  People couldn’t believe that I planned my first pregnancy to be due in December so I could have Cooper when it wasn’t wedding season. Hey- I couldn’t believe that it worked either but we were totally going to stop trying if we hadn’t gotten pregnant and wait for the next off season. We lucked out again when I became pregnant again and am due November.

Beautiful Blooms by Jen started off as just me, working out of my house. Now I have a staff of 7 other amazing individuals!  6 plus our awesome delivery driver, Scott. There is no way I would be able to design over 100 weddings a year in addition to tons of parties, events and daily deliveries. In fact, my main job is at a computer and meeting with clients about their events. Days go by without me even getting to touch a flower, which is sad, but I love the business aspect of owning a business as well. So even though the sign says Beautiful Blooms by Jen, any of my talented staff could have been the ones to design your fabulous flowers!

The moral of the story is that I have an amazing staff that will take care of each and every customer just like I would while I’m on maternity leave. Sarah and Colleen have each been on my team for over 5 years! And Hailley is going on 3! Plus, I am still able to be emailing and chatting with brides while I’m not physically in the shop.

Business goes on as usual while I’m on maternity leave, whenever Jaxon comes, and everything will still be perfect for our fabulous customers! We have some super exciting projects going on that I am so excited to be able to focus on and share when we can. If you email me, Jen@beautifulbloomsbyjen.com, please know that I will be answering emails as soon as I can, in between holding my brand new baby : )  If you need immediate assistance, please call the shop at 419-517-8821. Thanks to everyone for your support and patience during this exciting milestone!

Two years ago, we began our Charity in Bloom program, as a way to give back to the community. It’s now time to apply to be one of our 2018 Charity in Bloom non-profits. Please see below.

October 2017 Charity in Bloom

October 2017 Charity in Bloom

To Whom It May Concern:

As a part of our community outreach to different non-profits, we have a program in place called Charity in Bloom.  Each month a different charity is chosen and will receive 20% of all the sales from a dedicated arrangement.  When the arrangement is sent out, it includes a card that shares information about your organization. This is an example: BBBJ Charity in Bloom October (1).

Please fill out the provided Charity in Bloom application if you may be interested and return to Beautiful Blooms by November 30th. Twelve organizations will be chosen in December, one for each month of 2018. Charity in Bloom Application

In order for this to be a successful program it is important for you to help us promote in any way possible like in your newsletter and website with the Charity in Bloom link and picture provided.  It is also shared on the Beautiful Blooms by Jen social media, email lists, blog and more. In return, we would like the opportunity to quote any of your upcoming events for any floral needs. Please contact Colleen at 419-517-8821 or colleen@beautifulbloomsbyjen.com with any questions.

Thanks,

Colleen Barnhart

We had such a blast at our fall Wine and Wellness in September. 11 ladies designed an arrangement from local flowers and then learned about Essential Oils from Mary Bryant, of Melaleuca, The Wellness Company. Oils that were discussed were lavender, lemon and Peace which is a Tranquility Oil Blend that includes tangerine, orange, patchouli, tans, elemi and German chamomile blue.

Our flowers were almost all locally grown flowers from Barnswallow Farms.  They included sunflowers, celosia, roses, snapdragons, ageratum, globe amaranth and explosion grass.

...

Traci and Ana made our class a Mother-Daughter night out. Ana is such a talented designer and I love watching her creativity bloom. Her designs are very zen because she even uses her stems in her design. Plus she is so sweet, she made her arrangement for her teacher at school!

...

These two ladies made the class a girls night!

...

I love the way every arrangement looked just a little bit different!

...

Mother-2 daughter night out! Love these ladies and how supportive they are of our classes!

We love to host classes of any kind. As the only Certified Florist in Northwest Ohio, Jen Linehan, CF, CFD is your class instructor and all classes include all tools and supplies needed to make a gorgeous arrangement. We can custom design a class to fit into your budget. Most classes are in the $35-50 range. Please call Beautiful Blooms by Jen at 419-517-8821 to schedule your class!

We are so excited to share our May Charity in Bloom pick! It’s the perfect option for a Mother’s Day gift or to add a little spring color to your day!

Through our Charity in Bloom program, Beautiful Blooms by Jen is proud to contribute 20% of the proceeds from this floral design to the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life for the month of May!

My beautiful sister-in-law, Meghan got married in April! Her vision for her wedding was pastels with a pop of coral and twigs because her fiance’s last name is Twigg! Adorable huh?  She shared her pinterest page with me and her budget and we went from there. Love how everything turned out and the photos from Photo Tableau are absolutely stunning!
