Erin came to us because her fiance is a customer of ours. We love when that happens! Erin was so laid back and pretty much let her mom plan everything with us. We love how everything turned out!

If you haven’t ever seen the Periodic Table at Element 112, you have got to stop in! It’s the perfect place for a small wedding, shower or event!

Here at Beautiful Blooms by Jen we like to stay on the cutting edge of trends and education so we took a road trip to one of our wholesale houses. For those who do not know, wholesale houses are pretty much a florist’s candy shop. They have everything there from vases, decor, and fresh flowers. Since it was my first trip to one as the newest employee at BBBJ, my favorite was touring through the cooler. There were flowers that I recognized, but in colors that I never knew were available. Here are some of the highlights just from the cooler alone!

Nice bright yellow/orange to shake up the darker fall arrangements!

Soft pink tulips with dusty blue/green may hint to spring but still cold like winter.

We use hydrangea all the time for weddings but is this not just the greatest color combo of green and pink!

I love the shades of deep purple to help punch up the color of fall arrangements.

I know that was a lot of photos, what can I say I live behind the camera! Sorry about the photo quality on some of these, that is the downside to spending too much time in a cooler!

After the tour of the cooler we spent some time wandering the vast aisles of everything you could ever think of! There were vase’s in all colors, sizes, and shapes. Rows dedicated to different types and colors of ribbon. Everything a florist could ever need or want!

We also watched a design show focusing on the upcoming fall season and a transition to winter arrangements. They had the most impressive silk flowers that I have ever seen. ¬†They looked so real! My favorite part of the demonstration was watching the florist create arrangements on the spot just for us. I couldn’t believe how fast they designed! Definitely something I need to work on.

Wholesale houses are a business to business organization, sadly the public can not just go in and purchase items. But stop in to Beautiful Blooms by Jen and see our new items! We were inspired by the arrangements we viewed and are ready to create a masterpiece just for you!
