Shop the new Canadian Tulip Festival Collection!

The annual Canadian Tulip Festival is just around the corner and as proud Canadians, we plan to celebrate! Ottawa will be in full bloom from May 11-21 with events happening all over the city including Dow’s Lake, the Aberdeen Pavilion, and the Byward Market. Bloomex is excited to be the Official Florist of the Canadian Tulip Festival this year and we look forward to all the wonderful events taking place in the upcoming weeks!


To show our support, we will be featuring a Canadian Tulip Festival Collection on bloomex.ca to help raise funds for the Tulip Education Program designed to teach students from Canada’s Capital region elementary schools how to plant and care for tulip bulbs. Fifteen percent of product purchase will go directly to help build special gardens that will help preserve the legacy of the liberation of Europe by Canadian troops and the birth of Dutch Princess Margriet in Ottawa during World War II and pays tribute to our Canadian veterans and servicemen. In addition to the gift of these special tulip gardens, participating schools receive teaching resources and enjoy unique opportunities to engage with the festival through art and composition projects.

Tips & Tricks for Simply Beautiful Spring Blooms

The days are getting longer, the air is getting warmer and a sense of hope is all around! This can only mean one thing...Spring!

After months of braving the cold, frigid winter we can rest easy knowing sunnier days are on their way. In our opinion, the best way to celebrate is by filling your house with fresh flowers! But which ones are in season now? We’ve made a list of some of the blooms you should have adorning your dining table this season.

Tulips


These pretty blossoms come in a wide variety of colours and really are the symbol of Spring here in Canada.The annual Canadian Tulip Festival in Ottawa is a celebration of the historical flower and a haven for tulip lovers everywhere.

Olympic Recap: Team Canada in PyeongChang 2018

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Team Canada rocked it at the the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang! Our athletes brought home 29 medals which included 11 gold, 8 silver and 10 bronze medals, a record for Canada!


As the official florist of Skate Canada, we were on the edge of our seats watching our figure skaters take the ice. They've all had such an amazing year and this was truly the crowning achievement! Not only did they win gold in the team event, but Kaetlyn Osmond, Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford skated to Olympic glory in their events as well.







Canada’s darlings, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, set fire to the ice, winning gold in both the short and long programs! Although we are sad to see them retire from competition, they deserve a much needed break….no wait….we’re kidding….PLEASE DON’T GO!!! 


We are also a proud supporter of Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton, which had the largest showing the organization has ever seen in the Games. These guys killed it! Justin Kripps and Alexander Kopacz tied with Germany for gold in two-man bobsleigh while Kaillie Humphries and Phylicia George won bronze.




We want to thank all of our athletes for their dedication and perseverance, proving once again, that Canada is a force to be reckoned with!

Bloomex Provides Flowers for Skate Canada Synchronized Championships


Bloomex was so proud to sponsor the 2018 Skate Canada Synchronized Skating Championships February 23-25, 2018! Our Canadian skaters have had such an amazing season and the synchro teams continued the streak, impressing judges with their breathtaking routines. Bloomex provided all the medalist bouquets which were made of red roses and carnations to coordinate with Skate Canada’s colours. Each bouquet could then be dismantled so that each individual skater on the team received a flower. The competition took place at the Tribute Communities Centre in Oshawa, Ontario, boasting the best teams from across the country.


The top teams, Nexxice and Les Suprêmes qualified for the 2018 ISU World Synchronized Skating Championships in Stockholm, Sweden, April 6-7, 2018. 



We wish all the athletes the best of luck! 

Go Canada Go!
