I am ecstatic that spring & warm weather are finally here! This past winter was one of the coldest & snowiest on record. It was miserable. I didn’t mind winter when I was younger. Snow days were always welcome when I was in school! But that’s changed as I’ve gotten older, and the past couple of winters have been particularly awful. As a stay-at-home mom, being trapped inside month after month is especially difficult for me.

We’ve even talked about moving to a warmer climate. It’s painful to think about because both of our families are here — but we’re an active, outdoor-loving family, and winter genuinely depresses us. It takes a toll on our quality of life for a solid four months out of the year.

Anyway, those are just some of the thoughts swimming around in my mind lately. On a much brighter note, this post is actually about spring which brings two of my favourite things: parties & flowers! Honest to goodness, those two words make my heart sing. I just love to party plan and for me, there’s nothing better than warm weather & outdoor parties, BBQ, s’mores, cold beers, and warm sun. And of course, no party is complete without some beautiful decorations — most especially, fresh flowers.

Presently, I’m planning Roman’s 2nd birthday party. Remember last year’s party — Camp Roman? This year is going to be much smaller, I simply can’t do as much with a newborn in tow, but I’m still wildly excited about it. The theme is “The Wild West.” It’ll be in our backyard and there will be cow print, red bandanas, and hobby horses to boot! I’m still debating on flowers, but I’ll DIY something beautiful like I always do.

Speaking of parties, flowers, & DIY — I’d like to introduce you to Bloominous. Bloominous is a company that’s on a mission to make DIY flowers easy — you already know why I love this! They sent me the beautiful roses that are pictured in this post from their Party Pop collection.

This June will mark our three-year wedding anniversary, and of course three years since I DIY’d our wedding flowers, too. As someone who’s been through the process, I appreciate the Bloominous mission to make DIY accessible for everyone. They ship Priority Overnight to ensure freshness and provide video instructions that explain how to arrange your pieces easily. They also ship their flowers clean, which saves you from the time-consuming process of stripping leaves, thorns, and excess petals. I know first-hand how time-consuming that process is, since I spent hours doing it two days before our wedding! 😉

One thought on “spring, blossoms, parties // Bloominous”

  1. Absolutely gorgeous flowers. And great idea for a company/service. Who knew?! California’s definitely a much warmer climate (*wink wink*) but disgustingly expensive. Boo 🙁 We actually talk about moving elsewhere, too. But wouldn’t happen much, much further down the road. -Misty
