Bloomex teams up with Starlight Children’s Foundation

Bloomex has launched the beautiful Starlight Christmas Collection to help support the outstanding efforts of Starlight Children’s Foundation (Starlight). Bloomex is proud to be a supporter of Starlight, which is dedicated to helping seriously ill children and their families across Australia.Proudly-supporting-CMYK

Bloomex is donating 15 percent of product sales to help fund Starlight’s amazing programs that give children a much needed break from the grueling routine of treatment. In addition, customers can opt to donate $3 at checkout for any purchase made at Bloomex during the month of December.

For Starlight Children like six-year-old Nicolas and her family, Starlight provides a way for them to laugh and have fun, something they don’t get a lot of during treatments. Nicolas’s Starlight Wish was to star in his very own superhero movie. And with the help of Starlight his wish came true! Complete with film set, blockbuster special effects and a ride in a limo for Nicolas and his family. “The smiles and laughter I enjoyed seeing on my boy’s face during the worst time of his life was ‘priceless’.” – Nicolas’s Mum

Each product in the Collection was carefully chosen to represent the spirit of Starlight Australia and the joy of Christmas. Red and white blooms accented by Christmas greens are perfect for any holiday dinner table, while our sweets hamper makes gifting super simple.

 

Initiatives like Starlight Express Rooms, Wishgranting and Captain Starlight provide children with games, movies and crafts so they can focus on having fun, while their families get a chance to recoup.

 

We know these programs are vital in the recovery process, allowing kids to heal emotionally as well as physically and that’s why Bloomex is so proud to be doing our small part to help the cause.

Give back to your community this year and feel good knowing you’re helping child’s wishes come true! Shop the Starlight Christmas Collection here.

New Baby Blooms

The arrival of a new baby is a very exciting time and should be celebrated by family and friends alike!

 

The new parents may have already been showered with toys, blankets and bibs, but what about after the little one is born? Sending a beautiful bouquet of flowers to brighten up their home is a special gesture they won’t soon forget. It’s the perfect choice for those who are out-of-town and can’t be there to give congratulations in person. 

Flowers can also be the perfect finishing touch to the decor of a baby shower. Use pink, blue or gender neutral blooms to liven up the tables or present to the mother-to-be. 

Bloomex has a New Baby Collection full of stunning bouquets and gifts that are perfect for welcoming a little bundle of joy:

The Power of Flowers Series; Who Inspires You?

Using our social media channels, we recently asked our customers: “Who inspires you?”

At Bloomex, this question came from our desire to get to know our customers a little bit better. Who would you buy flowers for? Who do you know that deserves a boost? Why would flowers be the perfect gift?

We decided to create a contest in which people can win a bouquet of flowers to surprise someone they care about simply by sharing their stories with us on social media. The best way to make someone smile? Give away some free blooms!

We call it, The Power of Flowers.

We expected to read some beautiful sentiments but what we received was an enormous outpouring of love for people who put others before themselves everyday!

What started as a simple contest will now be transformed into a monthly blog series documenting stories of sacrifice and love. We are excited to share these acts of kindness and are truly honoured to have such amazing people as our customers.

Our first story comes from Ryan Holl of Bibra Lake, WA who wanted to surprise his wife on their anniversary.

“My wife who has delivered four beautiful children and works her guts out, deserves a wonderful treat like this to say thank you.”

The surprise went off without a hitch and their eldest daughter caught the whole thing on camera!

“Thank you for the flowers and chocolates – the wife was very happy!”

Thank you for sharing your story with us Ryan and taking the time to film your wife’s reaction. It’s moments like these that make us all believe in the power of flowers! 

Keep watching Facebook and Instagram for your next chance to enter!

A Night of Stars with Hockey Australia

We had so much fun at Hockey Australia‘s awards Gala, held at the QT Gold Coast Ballroom on Sunday October 28th.

As the official Florist to Hockey Australia, the Hockeyroos and the Kookaburras, Bloomex was delighted to provide flower bouquets for all 50 awards winners – you guys rock!

Our Brisbane production was honoured to create a green and yellow themed bouquet for the winners! They put together a beautiful mix of vibrant yellow roses, elegant lilies, wild snapdragons and more.

Approximately 400 guests were in attendance at the event, which took place following the 2018 Australian Hockey League Finals. This year, one of our super talented florists was able to attend and personally present our bouquet to the award winners!

Legendary skipper Mark Knowles and midfielder Jane Claxton took home the prestigious Kookaburras and Hockeyroos Player of the Year awards. Click here for a full list of all the award winners.

If you love yellow as much as we do, shop our line of beautiful yellow bouquets, here.

Yarrunga Field Special Reserve Shiraz 2017

Sam Trimboli has been creating bestselling wonders for us for nearly 20 years, so when we asked him for an exceptional Shiraz the great man was happy to oblige. Once again this 2017 ‘Special Reserve’ is made with Shiraz sourced from premium vineyards owned by many of Australia’s leading independent growers.

Lavishly aged in oak, it’s rich in delicious spice and velvety smooth black fruit. It’s a treat with a rare T-bone steak, a rich game casserole or strong farmhouse cheeses.

Discover these two amazing wines when you purchase a Bloomex gift hamper which can include cheeses, chocolates, artisan crackers and other savoury snacks. They come with your choice of red or white wine (or both) and are delivered right to the recipients door.
