Bloomex Sponsors Skate Canada Nationals

It was an exciting weekend in Ottawa last week with the hosting of the Canadian Tire National Skating Championships at TD Place. 

This always-superb skating event took place January 16 - 22 and was enjoyed at the venue and through TV coverage on both TSN and CTV in addition to live stream. Canada's top skaters converged on the nation's capital to compete for gold, treating us all to amazing skating routines in the process. 

Kaetlyn Osmond and ice dancers Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir broke Canadian records in their short programs on Friday night. 
Osmond landed three triple jumps, including two in her opening combo, and earned a Canadian record 81.01 points in the women's event. Moir and Virtue set a Canadian record in ice dance short program Friday night as well and were crowned senior champions on Saturday. 

Pairs skaters Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford took the gold for pairs for a record sixth national title win, with another dazzling routine.

As official florist to Skate Canada, Bloomex was again on hand to help sponsor Nationals by providing all flowers, teddy bears, gift baskets and medalist bouquets for the event.

A red and white theme for all the beautiful flowers paid homage to the Skate Canada colours. Flowers helped accent the venue as well as the dressing rooms and VIP lounge. Gift baskets for VIIPs and the hard working volunteers were also well received. Our Bloomex Ottawa team did an outstanding job!

On Thursday, several hundred local school children were treated to some amazing well as to the fun Bloomex Teddy Bear Toss! 

Friday night saw another fun Bloomex event at TD Place with "Pass the Bouquet by Bloomex" in which people in the stands passed a large bouquet until the music stopped and the prize was won. 

Congratulations to all our amazing Canadian skaters for their effort and polished performance at the 2017 Nationals! Bloomex was delighted to be part of it and to lend its continued support to Skate Canada. Enjoy these warm memories of another successful skating event!

Movie lovers, rejoice! Not only can Bloomex help you chase away the January blah's with fresh flowers, you can enjoy another free night out at the movies with your special someone. 

Bloomex is offering more FREE MOVIE TICKETS to see the advance screening of GOLD, starring Matthew McConaughey and Bryce Dallas Howard. 

GOLD is the epic tale of one man’s pursuit of the American dream, to discover gold. Starring Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey as Kenny Wells, a prospector desperate for a lucky break, he teams up with a similarly eager geologist and sets off on an amazing journey to find gold in the uncharted jungle of Indonesia. Getting the gold was hard, but keeping it would be even harder, sparking an adventure through the most powerful boardrooms of Wall Street. The film is inspired by a true story.

If you love action, adventure, romance, drama...this film has it all! This is your chance to see it first, and see it free! Advance screenings take place on January 25, with GOLD opening in theatres across Canada on January 27.

Now that the busy rush of the holidays is over, it’s time to relax. What better way than with a wonderful night out at the movies?

Bloomex would like to treat you and a friend to a movie night! We have five FREE MOVIE PASSES available for each major Canadian city (*see below for city, time and theatres). This gives you access to the advance screenings, so you get to see the movie first! You can then take your friends...The movie will be released in Toronto on January 13, and other theatres across Canada on January 20. 

The passes will admit two people to a special, advance screening for the brand new movie 20th Century Women starring Annette Bening, Elle Fanning and Greta Gerwig along with other amazing cast members. This wonderful dramatic comedy follows the story of three women of different ages who explore love and freedom in southern California during the late 1970s.

The always-superb Annette Bening plays single mother Dorothea Fields, who is trying to raise her son James during this time of turbulent social change and cultural rebellion. She enlists the help of two other younger women: Abbie, a free-spirited artist boarding with them, and Julie, an outspoken teenage neighbour.  A warm, charming and absolutely delightful story is the result, and we know you will love it!
