Flowers for the "Stars" at Blooming Gardens!

To own a flower shop in Miami, FL is to seldom have a dull moment, you never know,what....... will happen on any particular day! 

 The "X Factor" phenomenon came to Miami, FL several weeks ago and  Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul were in the news every day as they  presided over the auditions of thousands of wanna-be performers.  With all the audition hoopla happening in Coral Gables, I never guessed that Blooming Gardens down in South Dade in Cutler Bay, FL could possibly be touched by the mania.  Imagine my surprise on opening for business one morning and finding web orders to be delivered to Simon and Paula.  One very enamored fan found our website www.bloominggardens.net and liked what she saw.  After verifying that the orders were indeed real, we designed a very feminine arrangement with hot pink peonies,classic cezanne pink roses, pink hydrangea, penthouse pink oriental lilies, calla lilies and butterlies for especially for Paula and a more masculine arrangement with lavendar roses, purple larkspur, purple mini callas, hydrangea and liatris for Simon.

The flowers were made and sent out for delivery only to have our driver stopped by a very protective concierge at the South Beach Hotel - noone was registered at the hotel by those names!  Oh, no....what to do?  After pressing the concierge, he offered up that he knew what Simon and Paula looked like and if they "happened" to walk through the hotel lobby, he would let them know they had flowers!   Googling in the web indicated that this was the hotel they were staying at, so hopefully flowers from Blooming Gardens graced their rooms! 

You don't have to be a star to receive flowers from Blooming Gardens, but hopefully our flowers will make you feel like one!
