Decadent Godiva Gift Baskets

The holidays are right around the corner and at Bloomex we are busy gearing up for another wonderful year! 

We are always looking for new and exciting gift options to offer our customers and this year we are proud to announce a new partnership with world-renowned chocolate maker Godiva Chocolatier. 

Founded in Belgium in 1926, Godiva began as a small praline-making business in a private home owned by the Draps family. Joseph Draps decided to expand into making chocolate and purchased a separate storefront in Brussels (where one of the original Godiva shops still stands today). 

The name Godiva was chosen based on the legend of Lady Godiva who rode naked through the streets of Coventy to help protest high taxes. Her courage was successful and Draps hoped that his chocolate would one day become just as legendary. And he proved to be right! In 1966 Godiva crossed to America and continued its expansion across the world. 

Bloomex is pleased to partner with such a renowned brand of truly delectable gourmet chocolate creations. Godiva chocolates are always a decadent treat, and the perfect way to send someone a remarkable gift this holiday season. 

We've created four amazing gift baskets in a special Godiva Collection. Each one includes an array of special Godiva treats paired with other delicious nibbles so that you can impress even the most discerning recipient this year. 

Even better, the Godiva Collection is half priced for a special holiday introduction! Starting at just $54.99 these baskets are even more amazing. 

Don't miss out! Order your special Godiva Collection basket with delivery across Canada. It's Christmas made easy!

Bloomex Supplies Flowers for Skate Canada International

The 2016 Skate Canada International proved to be another exciting skating event for international and domestic skaters alike. This year's event took place at Hershey Centre in Mississauga, Ontario and hosted many of the world's top skaters. Skate Canada International is the second of six events in the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Series. Skaters compete for qualifying points as well as cash prizes. Our Canadian skaters did superbly!

For the ladies event, it was Evgenia Medvedeva of Russia who took gold (landing seven triples!), while Canada’s Kaetlyn Osmond took the silver medal with a beautiful skate to "La Boheme." Satoko Miyahara of Japan skated off with the bronze.

In the popular ice dance division, Canada's own Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir took gold, while Canada's Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford took gold in the spectacular pairs event.

In men's competition, Canada's Patrick Chan also skated off with the gold medal.  

As official florist of Skate Canada, Bloomex once again had the privilege (and the fun!) of designing and supplying all the flowers for this event. The Skate Canada event team requested red and white "Canadian" themed bouquets and event flowers. 

The podium bouquets were a beautiful combination of deep red roses, white spider mums, white chrysanthemum daisies and assorted accent greens to provide a striking combination enjoyed by all the winners. 

Bloomex also provided a visual boost to the venue with flowers for key areas such as registration, skater's and VIP lounges and the "kiss and cry" area. This year's event also saw a fun crowd activation set to music, with a "Pass the Bouquet by Bloomex" event in which some lucky winners took home a beautiful Bloomex bouquet of their own.  Bloomex was happy to also provide gift baskets and hotel bouquets to welcome and thank key volunteers and VIP's to the event. 

Bloomex also supplied bright and colourful dinner centrepieces to warm up the evening celebrations.

Congratulations to all our amazing Canadian athletes on their stellar performance at this event!
