Bloomex does vintage chic with Koffler Couture

Bloomex had the esteem pleasure of providing flowers for the annual Koffler Couture event hosted by the Koffler Arts Centre, December 9-11, 2017 in Toronto's trendy Queen West West neighbourhood. Known as a 'treasure hunter's dream', fashionistas can find vintage gems from designers such as Prada, Chanel and Versace. Bloomex designed vintage inspired arrangements of pink roses and white carnations to adorn the gallery venue.

Bloomex Supports Chai LifeLine Poker Fundraiser


Bloomex was delighted to provide the floral arrangements for Chai Lifeline's annual Go All In fundraiser this year. Our team had so much fun creating vibrant red, orange and yellow centrepieces that really popped on the black and white striped table cloths. Every year, Chai Lifeline throws this poker night in honour of all the Chai Warriors that help fund 24 programs supporting 400 families in the Toronto area. Guests enjoy a classic casino night with blackjack tables, roulette and of course, poker! 







Chai Lifeline is an amazing organization that helps support families of seriously ill children as they undergo treatment. Counselling for each member of the family, tutoring for children who must miss school, family retreats, special sibling programs and summer camps all help to relieve the stress of treatment. Each program is lead by passionate volunteers and is completely free.

Bloomex supports Bobsleigh CANADA Skeleton as they speed towards gold!

In 1877, the Swiss decided to attach a steering mechanism to a toboggan, giving birth to the first ever bobsleigh. Skeleton got its start in 1892 when Englishman, Mr. Child, surprised his friends with a new sled made mostly from metal and shot down the hill face first. Canada has been competing in this adrenaline pumping sport at the world level since the first Olympic Winter Games in 1924. Athletes plummet down a 1300m track made of ice at 150 km/h, navigating at least 15 curves and every millisecond counts. This is not a sport for the faint of heart!

Canada will be competing at the BMW IBSF World Cup 2018 Games in Whistler, November 24-25 at the Whistler Sliding Centre.




As Official Floral Partner to Bobsleigh CANADA Skeleton (BCS), Bloomex will be providing all florals for the BMW IBSF World Cup 2018 Games being hosted in Whistler, BC on November 24-25. 2017. The provision will include podium bouquets for race winners to be given during the medal ceremonies, as well as floral arrangements for the VIP areas at the venue

On November 1, Canada announced their teams for the BMW IBSF World Cup 2018 Games, kicking off in Lake Placid on November 4-5, 2017. The team will then go on to compete in the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang. Kaillie Humphries is returning to defend her gold medal title, piloting the women’s bobsleigh. Her teammates, 16 in the World Bobsleigh Team and  six in the World Cup Skeleton Team, have helped contribute to four Olympic medals, five World Championship medals and 18 World Cup podium appearances throughout their careers.









To help support these Canadian athletes, Bloomex will donate 15 per cent of every sale to BCS when customers use promo code BCS15 at checkout.
