A lot of work goes into choosing the perfect, meaningful gift for someone, but the accompanying card is often an afterthought, scrawled as you’re heading out the door. It can be a little overwhelming to stare at a blank card and try to think of something to write, but it doesn’t have to be difficult! Next time you receive a birthday invitation or the calendar tells you it’s a special occasion, ask yourself these questions to avoid the struggle. What is the occasion? The message in a card will, of course, depend greatly on what the occasion is. The most common occasions for gifts and cards are: ...

Celebrations of mothers and motherhood can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals in honour of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele, but the clearest modern precedent for Mother’s Day is the early Christian festival known as “Mothering Sunday.” Once a major tradition in the United Kingdom and parts of Europe, this celebration fell on the fourth Sunday in Lent and was originally seen as a time when the faithful would return to their “mother church” – the main church in the vicinity of their home – for a special service. Over time the Mothering Sunday tradition shifted into a more secular holiday, and children would present their mothers with flowers and other t...

You all know that we love chocolate here at Edible Blooms but we love the people over at Chocolatier Australia more (and not just because they make chocolate)! Like us they believe that not all chocolates are created equal, and the ones created with extra love, care and a special artisan touch taste so much better. The Australian company started by brothers ( siblings just like us ) David, John and Mark found their business sweet spot by creating world class chocolates and pralines and grew their business to what it is today, making 1000 hand-made chocolates a week. What’s...

So when one of our gorgeous bouquet designers, Sally, recently got her heart broken, we listened while she cried, we gave her the keys to the chocolate cupboard and then we let her create a cathartic anti-Valentine’s Day range to vent her feelings. Funny thing is, the more women we tell, the more women who want to buy from our anti-Valentine’s Day range that doesn’t officially exist. Seems there’s quite a market for...

Working for Edible Blooms, we’ve become accustomed to the strange looks on people’s faces when they ask us what we do. “How can you possibly make an edible balloon? ” is one of the most common responses we get (perhaps we need to work on our pronunciation).

Our chocolate bouquets are made by hand at our store locations, where our creative ‘Bloomettes’ take each ind...
