It was this time last year that I began my career as a florist at Bloomies and discovered my intense obsession with flowers and floral design. It’s a sentimental time of year for that reason. Right now, Bloomies is pulling in fresh from market all my late-winter early-spring favorites: ranunculus(!), narcissus, stock, ornamental kale, hellebore, and the list goes on. It’s just heavenly over there. It’s a must visit–don’t forget to take something gorgeous and fragrant home!
Honestly, white ranunculus are the most beautiful, chic of blooms. Maybe I just think this because they go really well with my small craftsman home decorated in neutrals, but either way.
Here we have three different types of narcissus: the variety commonly known as paperwhites (far left), china narcissus, one of my FAVORITES due to the color and rose-like cluster of petals (center), and a scented mini-daffodil (upper right).
This is another of my absolute favorites, and I’ll take it in any color (and it comes in many). I love the delicate, clustered blossoms arranged vertically on the stem, and the soft, sweet scent. One of the best parts about these is that you can actually get them year-round and they are so inexpensive! Bloomies bases all their prices on the market, but these most often go for a dollar a stem. Gorgeous on their own or in an arrangement with other blooms.
Go forth! And get Bloomied!
