Cool Things Rhi-flection: DIY Flowers from Bloominous


Dear readers if you haven't figured it out yet, I am all about finding ways to live large on a very small budget. So when I find something awesome I just have to share it and right now I am in love with Bloominous!

This October Mister Rhi and I are celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary. Alas, we eloped because neither of us could afford a wedding but if I were getting married this autumn instead of celebrating an anniversary I would be planning to get my flowers from Bloominous.

So what is it exactly?

Specially designed DIY themed kits for your wedding floral arrangement needs. They do the designing, shopping, and preparing then ship you a kit with step-by-step pictorials so that you can create your centerpieces, bouquets, boutonnieres, and more depending on which collection you choose.

Desert Blooms Centerpiece from the Bohemian Desert Collection

While Bloominous is primarily wedding-centric the centerpieces would make lovely gifts for Mother's Day, a birthday, or an anniversary. As long as you're up for some DIY you should give them a look.

They currently have five unique collections:

Groom & Groomsman Boutonnieres from the Party Pop Collection
• The Party Pop Collection. Sweet. Sassy. Modern. This collection says 'celebration' with fun pops of coral and pink.  -- With roses and gold accents this is utterly classic with modern sensibilities. Perfect for the girly-girl who loves glitter and glam.

Bohemian Crown from the Bohemian Desert Collection
The Bohemian Desert Collection. A whimsical, free-spirited collection with an unconventional twist. -- With asters, delphiniums, succulents, and feather accents this collection is playful yet sophisticated while being on-trend. Perfect for the Pinterest addict who lives for music festivals and Instagram-worthy moments.

Centerpiece from the Vintage Cottage Collection
• The Vintage Cottage Collection. French baroque inspired style that is sweet, charming and romantic. -- With white and blush roses, button mums, and a delicate feel this collection is vintage without feeling stuffy. Perfect for the bride who loves lace and all things Jane Austen.

Bridal & Bridesmaid Bouquets & Boutonnieres from the Eco Chic Collection 
• The Eco Chic Collection. For the one who is sophisticated, modern, and willing to challenge the status quo. -- With ornamental cabbage, eucalyptus, and ferns this verdant collection is androgynous and eco-centric. Perfect for the couple seeking a 'green' option with sleek, minimalist sophistication.


Bridal Bouquet & Centerpiece from the Country Charm Collection
The Country Charm Collection. A "happy" collection of warm colors and rustic details, perfect for an intimate setting. -- With a cheerful yellow centered palette featuring sunflowers, roses, and hypericum berries with wood accents this is farmer's market chic. A bright, charming choice for the bride who knows rustic and elegance are not mutually exclusive.

I have to admit that the only one of these collections that doesn't attract me is the Vintage Cottage, it's too delicate for my personal taste. The Eco Chic collection is so unique and speaks to my lifestyle so very much and yet the Party Pop collection has a really fun vibe that I think would work for anyone. I adore the Country Charm collection for it's gorgeous sunflowers and can totally picture it looking amazing with a wedding where cobalt or turquoise are also included in the palette. My favorite, however, is the Bohemian Desert collection. My personal style would probably lean more toward a gothic aesthetic if I were planning a wedding but it's such a beautiful collection with unusual choices that I know it would suit me very well. Is there one that speaks to your style or tastes? 

Have you tried DIY floral arrangements for a wedding in the past? If you're in the process of planning a wedding where are you trying to save money? What occasions other than weddings would you like to try your hand at a DIY floral arrangement for?

P.S. -- I discovered Bloominous through a Tomoson promotion where they were offering reviewers their trial kits to try so there will probably be a few blogs out there with reviews featuring the actual DIY experience in the next few weeks. Want to try your own? Trial kits are currently 30% off and get FREE shipping!
