The Beautiful Blooms by Jen Christmas centerpiece class was fabulous!  We had so many different interpretations of our centerpiece and we love it when people get creative!

This floral design class was packed as we headed into holidays, especially since this arrangement was sure to knock their stockings off!

...

• Sarah explained to everyone the different techniques to making a full and lasting arrangement.

...

• Traci and Ana always have fun at our classes!  The are a creative dynamic duo!

•These ladies were hard at work making sure their pieces turned out perfectly… and they did!

...

• The winter greens make the arrangements so full, long-lasting and fragrant. Nothing beats fresh pine!

...

• The arrangement had a little  more traditional look with greens, red flowers, plaid ribbon and a candle.  They were a beautiful addition to everyone’s tables!

...

• These girlfriends had so much fun and look how beautiful the centerpieces turned out!

Thank you to The Cinnamon Stick for allowing us to use this space as well as indulge in coffee, pies, and other treats!

We 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.

We had the pleasure of being a part of “Holidays in the Manor House” for 2017 at Wildwood Metropark in Toledo, Ohio. It is two week event where interested groups apply with their ideas and if chosen, you are given a room. This process begins right after the year before.

After much brainstorming by Beautiful Blooms by Jen Manager, Colleen, and an interview process, we were given the Tap Room to transform into a fun holiday party spot. Let’s just say- we love SPARKLE as you can see when you enter the room!

...

Colleen decided to have a Gatsby feel in the room with sparkles, feathers, crystals and balloons.

...

Can you imagine being at this party?

This was a perfect spot for our couple to dance and have a photo taken. Thank you to Mager Designs for providing all the lights to make our vision complete.

...

…Shall we dance…

Large martini glasses filled with pearls, sparkle, diamonds and feathers spill out to add an extra pop to our sequin table cloth and chair covers provided by I Do Chair Covers. Thank you to Meredith Party Rentals for supplying the tables and chairs to make our “party” happen.  We love the glitter gold and silver chair sashes that Stone Ridge Golf Club let us borrow. It was a vendor team effort and we loved collaborating!

....

I can only imagine the parties the Stranahans had in this beautiful home!

We even had a beautiful vintage tinsel tree to really take you back in time.

....

…WOW!!

The bar was trimmed ready for a party with it’s own champagne tower.

....

….

Loved adding this fun confetti balloon garland to tower over the martini bar.

....

…The balloons were so pretty with the lighting provide by Mager Designs.

Make sure you stop by and see all of the beautiful rooms that are decorated up for the holidays. Colleen and Mary Beth really worked hard on this project and we think it turned out super fun! We’ve loved seeing everyone’s pictures of our room on social media. Thanks for all the tags!

The Manor House is open daily 10am-8pm until Sunday, December 17th.  It is great family fun with hot cocoa, s’mores and mule rides on the weekend.


Thank you again to all the help from our wonderful vendors!

We are so excited for our annual Holiday Centerpiece classes on December 21st and 22nd. Due to the demand last year, we have decided to have two classes this year! These classes are the perfect Christmas gifts to grab a couple friends and come together, or moms and daughters, etc.

The Thursday night class will be hosted at the Cinnamon Stick at 3535 N. Holland Sylvania Rd. Toledo, OH 43615.  Your investment is $40 and includes all instruction, materials and tools for the design. Coffee, tea, and assorted sweets from Cinnamon Stick are also included. Extra treats and alcoholic beverages are available for purchase. You can also pick up a pie for your holiday celebration while you are there!

We are also hosting an Adult Holiday Centerpiece Class on December 22nd from 7pm-8:30pm at Chandler Cafe. We picked the 22nd so that flowers will be nice and fresh for Christmas or Hanukkah.

We are so excited to offer our holiday centerpiece adult class again this year. We love the design that we’ve chosen and hope you do too! The design consists of winter greenery, red roses, lotus pods, red ribbon and lily grass.

If you’re looking for a floral design class, we typically teach them in our off season which is November-April. We love groups of girl friends, girl scouts, co-workers, birthday parties and more. We can accommodate groups of any size whether it is in our flower shop or another local shop nearby.

My mom and I went to visit Holidays in the Manor House yesterday. I had never been before, but I wanted to check it out since I’d been hearing a lot about it. One of my employees and her family decorated a room and one of our favorite customers had the honor of decorating the entryway!  And then there were more surprises by other friends once we were there!

The first room you walk into was designed by one of my employees, Alisa, and her family. What an awesome Coca-Cola collection they have!  I loved the topper she designed on the Christmas Tree.

Check out this amazing tree designed by one of our awesome customers, Traci and her family. You can see her gorgeous fire place as well with curly willow purchased from Beautiful Blooms by Jen.

I loved how in many of their rooms there were these purple circles that shared information about our local parks as well.

Traci and her husband, Mike, were married 5 years ago in November in the Manor House so it is so cool for them to be a part of this!

And then I came around the corner and saw two sweet trees that were decorated by our friends at the Pinnacle! There was a Mrs. Tree and a Mr. Tree.

Once we went upstairs we saw this awesome snowman and cake room made by Strachn Bakery!

IMG_2460

I couldn’t believe how many people were there to walk through this awesome exhibit. It probably took about 30 minutes to walk through all the rooms because you are following the line of people in front of you. You follow a specific path and can’t go out of order. There is also a scavenger hunt if you want to participate.

Plus you could make a s’more and take a horse and carriage ride which would have been super fun! We were definitely not dressed warm enough yesterday to partake in either activity. But now we know for next time.
