BLOOM specializes in seasonal, fresh floral designs for celebrations, corporate accounts or as gifts. We use the freshest materials available and are committed to making beautiful, long lasting designs.
The creative director and owner of BLOOM is Susanne Hay. A native of Germany, Susanne studied Biology at Ludwig Maximillian University in Munich and has a lifelong love for nature and gardening. She received a certificate for floral design from Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania and continues to take classes with visiting floral designers from around the world. She exhibits at local flower shows including the Philadelphia Flower Show where she entered several blue ribbon winners in competitive design classes in 2016, 2017, and 2018.
Our designs go beyond the expected. We strive to combine beautiful natural materials, looking to nature for design inspiration and sometimes adding unexpected elements. Arrangements may be lush and overflowing, minimalist modern, tropical or monochromatic. We listen to your wishes and make recommendations when appropriate.
"One arranges flowers as the spirit moves you; to obey some inner prompting to put this colour with that, to have brilliance here, line there, a sense of opulence in this place or sparseness in that; to suit your surroundings, your mood, the weather, the occasion. In a word, to do as you please, just as, if you could, you might paint a picture."
Helpful Tips to Keep Your Flowers Looking Their Best
Conditioning Fresh Cut Flowers
Our flowers have been conditioned in fresh water and the appropriate amount of flower food prior to arranging. This ensures a long lasting arrangement in your home. Some of the blooms may not have opened yet, but they will, and will make your arrangement last even longer.
You can further extend your arrangements lifetime by placing it in a cool environment, such as a covered porch, a fridge or a cool basement, during the night time. Also keep it away from ripe fruit and direct sunlight.
