Bloem is a multidisciplinary experiment in nature. We are a studio based practice, specializing in sculptural and contemporary design. We grow a quarter of an acre of our own specialty cut flowers that we carefully curate and collect for our designs. Bloem is an appointment only design studio and flower farm located in Adjala-Tosorontio.
What are your services?
We are a semi-seasonal operation, meaning our services change depending on the time of year.
For individual gift orders, we require 5-7 days notice to source and secure product. Weddings and events we recommend booking 6-8 months in advance. We do not book over a year out from your date.
Where do your flowers come from?
Where do you deliver to?
Local Delivery is a 23km radius from our farm outside of Alliston. This is calculated at checkout. If you do not see a Local Flower Delivery Option, it means you are outside of our delivery zone.
What happens if the recipient is not home?
Please ensure that the recipient will be home on the day of your delivery.
If the weather is good and there is a safe place, like a covered porch or a concierge, we will leave the flowers there for the recipient. We ask that you provide a phone number for the recipient so that we are able to touch base for circumstances like this. Flowers cannot be left unattended in weather under 2 degrees, or in hot weather, so in the event that the recipient is not home and we are unable to leave the flowers, we will attempt delivery on the same day, if possible. Otherwise, delivery will be attempted the next day, with an additional delivery fee.
How long will my flowers last?
Tell me about your packaging...
We strive to be environmentally conscious at every step of the growing and design process. Our vase arrangements come floral foam free with either a tape grid or chicken wire mechanics, with recycled packing paper, and a small amount of cellophane to catch any water spillage during transport. Whenever possible, our bouquets will come with no water pack. This enables us to avoid plastic altogether. In the event that hydration is necessary, our bouquets come wrapped in a small water pack that we called "The Oma Method." This is a wet paper towel around the stems in a cellophane bag (a modified version of how my Oma always transported flowers from her garden). This helps keep your bouquet hydrated during transit, while avoiding the use of floral foam. Water may spill out from the water pack, so we recommend keeping your bouquet upright and opening the packaging over a sink!
How do I care for my flowers?
Give bouquet stems a fresh cut, on an angle, and be sure to use a clean vase with fresh, cool water.
What is your return policy?
Flowers are perishable goods and can not be returned. If damage occurs during transport, or there are any immediate quality issues, please contact us within 24 hours with a photo so that we can provide a replacement, if appropriate. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with photographs of your flowers so that we’re able to see what happened, and rectify the situation for future deliveries.
