Flowers: The Classic Valentine's Day Gift

Trying to think of the perfect Valentine's Day gift for that special someone? Look no further! There’s a reason why flowers have remained one of the top romantic gifts for decades. They symbolize blossoming love and new hope. They make people feel special, and not to mention, they’re beautiful! If you take the time to choose your Valentine's favourite bloom, they will never forget. 

Roses have been the symbol of Valentine’s Day for as long as anyone can remember. They are classically lovely and come in a wide variety of colours.

Bloomex for Business!

Bloomex is proud to announce our expanded Bloomex Corporate Program for all your business needs!

Although we have been offering bulk ordering for businesses for years now, we have added some exciting new features that we believe will add to employee satisfaction in the workplace.


Wellness Snack Baskets


We are offering a new service to help support health and wellness in the workplace. Your snack basket will include individually sized snacks convenient for employees to grab throughout the work day. Choose from weekly, bi-weekly or monthly deliveries and avoid that mid-day slump! 


Bloomex Corporate Greetings


We work with you to recognize important dates and achievements of employees and clients. Remembering birthdays, work anniversaries and special announcements is a great way to make your employees feel valued. 


Bloomex Team Builder


FlowerNite is an interactive design workshop perfect for team builder events. Employees create and take home beautiful floral masterpieces while communicating in a positive way with their co-workers. Our hosts take care of set up, instruction and all clean up.


Corporate Floral Service


By signing up for a corporate account, you and your employees will receive 20% off all flowers, gift baskets, cakes and other gourmet gifts. We also have a subscription service for regular floral deliveries should there be a need to have fresh flowers in your office monthly, weekly or for special events.







To launch our new corporate program, Bloomex is honoured to be attending the HRPA Annual Conference and Trade Show in Toronto January 31- February 2, 2018. Our team will be there to promote our new initiatives and an expert florist will be on-site creating beautiful arrangements while discussing the benefits of having a FlowerNite workshop in your workplace.

PR and Roses

Bloomex had the distinct honour of sponsoring the Second Annual Humber Public Relations Conference: "Autobahn: Your Journey to a Fast-Paced Career in PR" on January 11, 2018 at Humber College. Third year Bachelor of Public Relations (BPR) students hosted the educational networking event in the new Centre for Entrepreneurship at LakeShore Campus. The evening featured a panel of industry professionals such as Emily Whalen, Account Executive at Edelman, and Abby Albino, Communications Manager at Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment. Bloomex provided white roses and alstroemeria that adorned the venue with simple elegance.

Bloomex supports Canada's figure skating super stars!

The 2018 Canadian Tire National Skating Championships were the last stop before PyeongChang for Canada’s top figure skaters. The best of the best competed for the chance to join Team Canada at the Winter Olympic Games on their journey for gold.

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir dazzled judges, twirling into first place in all their categories. The dynamic duo was also honoured with the responsibility of carrying Canada’s flag during the Olympic opening ceremonies on February 9, 2018. Patrick Chan, Kaetlyn Osmond, Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford are also among the athletes competing for Canada in their respective events.

Team Canada

As an official sponsor for Skate Canada, Bloomex provided all the flowers including the medalist bouquets presented to all winners. Our team in Vancouver had so much fun designing the arrangements which were a combination of vibrant red and white blooms, Skate Canada’s official colours.





We wish all our athletes the best of luck over in South Korea and will be cheering them on from here at home! #PyeongChang2018

Mix it up with a mixed bouquet!

Winter is in full force, which means we will be seeing a lot of white for the next few months.

This is the perfect time to send someone you care about a mixed bouquet of flowers! Something vibrant and pretty to brighten up their day.
