Help #BobTeamMata reach their Olympic dreams!

If you haven’t heard that Australia has a bobsleigh team…pay attention!

With less than two months before the 2018 Winter Olympic Games begin in PyeongChang, the Australian men’s Bobsleigh Team is tirelessly training for a chance to compete on the world stage. They have been away from home for months, training in Canada and travelling the world competing in the BMW IBSF World Cup Bobsleigh and Skeleton 2017. Each race brings them closer to achieving their dream of standing on the Olympic medal podium!

The team is made up of pilot Lucas Mata and four brakemen Gareth Nichols, Hayden Smith, Lachlan Reidy and David Mari. Collectively, they are known as #BobTeamMata and they live for plummeting down a track made of pure ice at 150 km in a sled made of steel. They’re basically superheroes.

Bloomex Australia is behind them all the way, but we need YOUR help! Shop our limited edition Australia Bobsleigh Team Collection that boasts generous gift baskets and beautiful flower arrangements because 20% of product purchase will go back to #BobTeamMata to help fund their journey to PyeongChang in February.

Bloomex teams up with Starlight Children’s Foundation

Bloomex has launched our 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 brightening the lives of seriously ill children and their families across Australia.

Bloomex is donating 15 percent of product sales to help support Starlight’s programs. Together we can help sick kids simply be kids by turning pain, fear and stress into fun, joy and laughter.

Proudly-supporting-CMYK

For children like four-year-old Addy and her family, Starlight provides much needed quality time, something they don’t get a lot of during treatments. When Addy was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, her family needed to uproot their whole life, which meant less time spent playing with her brothers and more time in the hospital. Starlight stepped in to give them all a “great escape.”

Each product 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.

Ghouls, Goblins, Sweets and Treats

It’s almost Halloween and the time of year we all think of ghouls, goblins, witches and warlocks, sweets and treats!

Halloween is celebrated each year on October 31, but is rooted in older European traditions. It seems to have begun with Samhain, an ancient Celtic festival in which bonfires and costumes were believed to keep ghosts at bay. Pope Gregory III later designated November 1 as a time to honor the saints (All Saints Day) and this celebration incorporated some of the older Celtic traditions. The evening before was known as All Hallows Eve, and later Halloween.

Over time, Halloween evolved to include fun activities such as trick-or-treating and carving jack-o-lanterns. It is still celebrated in many countries around the world. Whether you have little ones going out to join into the festivities or you are attending a party or other celebrations, Halloween is often  associated with dressing in costumes –and of  course, with sweet treats!

In honour of this taste for treats, we thought we would provide a few other ways to indulge your sweet tooth. Send a delectable Sweets Hampers to your friends and loved ones and they won’t even have to leave the house to enjoy some yummy decadence. Best of all: these hampers are available year-round (and you don’t have to be in costume to order one).

We’ve chosen four of our faves here, but be sure to check the website for more options.

We wish everyone a safe and happy Halloween!
