A glimpse into previous experiences with Ida Blooms
As a self proclaimed introvert, Annie was excited to partner with SixDegrees Society on Wednesday, October 24 for a night of curated networking and FlOwER PoWeR!
All 15 attendees had a handpicked networking match, and then new and old friends alike transitioned into a custom flower arranging class, taught by Ida Blooms.
This ninety minute workshop at Pinterest Headquarters sold out in ten minutes! All 15 employees created beautiful autumn wreaths out of oak and maple leaves, curly willow branches, and various fall florals.
To honor the deep wood and rich colors at the historical Haas-Lilienthal House in Pacific Heights, Pomp & Whimsy requested some rad, dramatic + moody florals to highlight the space.
After a site visit, Annie proposed four huge pompas grass installations to reach toward the high ceilings in the the parlor rooms (+ a few supporting florals throughout the house). With only two hours to set up, it was a race to the finish, but a huge success!
At this SOLD OUT workshop, Ida Blooms walked 12 lovely ladies through the process of building a boutonniere and floral foam centerpiece.
The class worked with dahlias, eucalyptus, wax flower, and thistle to create whimsical, romantic arrangements. Light bites, lots of wine, and 20% of Jenny’s entire shop made the evening extra special!
Tayler and her bridesmaids chose to DIY their wedding bouquets.
After a several collaborative design consultations, Annie and Tayler identified the budget, colors, and style of the wedding. Then, Annie created a custom recipe card for Tayler’s eight bridesmaid bouquets, and single bridal bouquet. Annie delivered both recipe cards + florals + shears/ribbon/tape the Thursday before Tayler’s wedding.
Bouquets turned out beautifully, and Annie could not be more proud!
Shira and her mother-in-law were very excited to DIY the table decor (bud vases and centerpieces) for this SF wedding. They entrusted Shira’s bridal bouquet, the flower girls’ flower crowns, and Spencer’s boutonniere to Annie.
Leading up to her wedding, Annie and Shira identified her budget, colors, and style. Then, Annie created two custom recipe card for Shira’s centerpieces and delivered them with florals, vases and tools. Then, the morning of Shira’s wedding, Annie dropped off her bridal bouquet and other components on site.
Annie returned to Greater Cincinnati to host this SOLD OUT workshop at The Frock. With 20 women in attendance, ages 25-60+, we flowered for ninety minutes with lots of colorful fall blooms. Students left with hand-made bouquets, and a new set of arranging skills!
In this workshop, five phenomenal ladies gathered at Jenny Lemons’ Mission Retail shop to learn the basics of flower arranging. In the two hour class, Ida Blooms walked students through centerpiece 101: how to work with floral foam, how to be resourceful with the leftovers (hiii boutonnieres!), and tips and tricks to make arrangements special. Light bites, lots of wine, and 20% of Jenny’s entire shop made the evening extra special!

Ida Blooms launched into the world of corporate team building with Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP. The class was so popular, we hosted it twice! With 10-15 employees at each workshop, the ninety minute classes were a hit.
This afternoon of outdoor yoga, hosted by YogaSidekick and Gal Collective, also featured a variety of wellness brands and local vendors including doTerra, kovikai, Nourish Cafe, Curie and many more.
Ida Blooms installed a fun and airy carnation wall to act as a backdrop in the open space.
Renee was Annie’s FIRST DIY client! Leading up to her July 28 wedding in Santa Rosa, Annie and Renee worked 1:1 to decide the flowers, tools, and schedule she needed to build the florals of her dreams.

The Lonely Bouquet is an international project meant to spread love among strangers. With a signature "take me" or "adopt me" card, you can leave a bouquet somewhere in the city for an unsuspecting stranger to find. The stranger might take it. They might leave it.
