Shelbie and I have known each other for years, since I was her teacher at Southview years ago. She is totally not a girly girl so it was fun helping her pick a fun bouquet that she loved. It was perfect for the season and really popped!

We LOVE weddings on water! Rachel came to us looking for bright wedding flowers for her Lakeside, OH wedding. Talk about a gorgeous location! My employees were fighting over who got to deliver!  Plus it was such a gorgeous bright colored wedding!

Mackenzie had a beautiful coral color palette which popped off of navy dresses!  She rented vases from us, bought bulk flowers and put her bridesmaid’s to work! I hope they turned out great!

Ever wonder how to shop for gerbera daisies? How do you tell if they are fresh or not?  At Beautiful Blooms by Jen, we pride ourselves in only selling the freshest of the fresh. We love when customers call and tell us how happy they are because their arrangement lasted for weeks!  We found these pictures from Gerber Specialists, Holstein Flowers, that demonstrate what to buy and not buy.

This is what a gerbera daisy should look like. The key is looking at the eye, right around the black circle in the center.

The yellow is still close to the center, so this is still a good gerb to purchase.

This is an example of a gerbera daisy that you should not purchase... See all the yellow around the eye?  This gerbera would not last very long.
