Homegrown Blooms specializes in & strives to be unique by utilizing as much of our own grown flowers as possible during the seasonal months. Our passion is flowers…from growing to designing with some of the most sought after varieties that create bouquets and arrangements with a completely custom feel.
More recently we've been seeing trends for and requested to design with an "organic & whimsical" feel- which often involves soft, lush greenery like penny cress and dusty miller and endless varieties of eucalyptus. Flowers we grow like anemones, lithianthus, dahlias and of course garden roses are growing more popular and requested in designs. Of course there are brides who have a more traditional vision- a structured bouquet filled with roses, baby's breath and hydrangeas. Being a non-traditional, creative, seasonal farmer-florist makes it hard to bring these more traditional, structured visions to life.
As for color trends- we've notices everything from blue and peach pairings (which we're excited to use June blooms like peach Icelandic poppies and pale blue delphinium for) a lot of blush tones and lavender and when the wedding season begins to shift more towards fall, a lot of burgundies and deep violets.
Pinterest: Pinterest can be a lovely thing- I have to admit I make each one of my brides a styled board on Pinterest to keep track of their colors, style and visions. Yet- Pinterest can be very overwhelming because the flowers shown on here are usually very high end and pricey to replicate. A bride might see a pretty garland and think "Oh, it's only made of greens it must be inexpensive" But the cost of the individual greens adds up and time and labor factored in to making that Pinterest worthy garland must be taken into account. Remember, in the end it is your bouquet. Our goal is to create our bouquets and arrangements completely custom for our wedding couples. It is our passion to bring a magical essence to each order and use as much of our own grown flowers as possible. Flowers are hand-picked just a few days before each wedding and designed with the very best floral ingredients available at that time in the season. We love all the delicate details in the flowers we grow, the romantic fragrance you experience with the freshest cut blooms, and the unrestrained color palette to choose from. Each bouquet designed at Homegrown Blooms is a true labor of love!
