Review


Bloominous is a fantastic, new concept for me. As you can imagine, flower coordination is one of the most expensive and stressful components to wedding and party planning. They have to match outfits, match decor, match furnishings... and they cost a small fortune. Agh!

Bloominous is a refreshing newcomer to the party planning scene, that allows you to arrange a set of flowers—whether it be centerpieces or bouquets—yourself!

There are five outrageously beautiful collections Bloominous has designed, and I was sent a trial kit for the Bohemian Desert collection, which consists of an elaborate centerpiece that is oh-so-simple to put together. I have NO former training in or experience with flower arrangement, and even I was able to make a magazine-worthy centerpiece!

The flower kit was overnighted to me in a box padded with cold packs and carefully lined with brown paper. The bundles of flowers were artfully packaged in paper and tied with twine, and the cut stems were salvaged with wet sponges to prevent them from drying out.

This kit was SO easy to put together and the flowers were absolutely gorgeous. There's a little instruction manual and packet of flower food to keep your flowers from wilting; Bloominous really thinks of everything you'll need! The step-by-step manual walks you through the process of arranging the bouquet, from brief explanations and illustrated keys of each individual flower included, to the order in which you need to arrange the flowers. There's no way I could have made my centerpiece so beautiful myself, even if someone did send me a bunch of pretty flowers.

The professionally designed and individually catered centerpiece arrangement really looked amazing on our dining table. It looked exactly like it did in this picture:


Here are some Instagram pictures I snapped of the flowers fresh out of the box!
Just look at those colors! Do they not scream summer?

The entire Bohemian Desert Collection consists of a Bridal Bouquet ($60), Bohemian Crown ($40), Boutonnieres ($5), my gorgeous Desert Blooms Centerpiece ($50), the equally gorgeous Earthy Blooms Centerpiece ($70; pictured above), and Trial Kit (on sale for $70). You can purchase the entire collection, or each component à la carte, which allows flexible floral decorating and can be streamlined for your budget. As you can see, these kits are very reasonably priced considering you're getting pieces that look professionally done, but have actually been built by you!

Here's a glimpse of the other Bloominous collections, that are absolute flower porn:

All DIY fanatics, brides-to-be, and event planners should consider Bloominous. Their flowers aren't only visually appealing, but they're also easy to assemble, affordable, and fresh from the flower markets.
