Blooms was envisioned in 2015 by Elizabeth Blaikie. As the eldest daughter of Bob, she grew up in the greenhouses of Lancaster Gardens, learning the difference between a marigold and a petunia from a young age. Her interest in art and design and all things beautiful grew with age. After graduating from Wentworth with a degree in architecture, she ended up focusing on building her family.
Now, with her daughter in school and the itch to put her design skills back to use, Blooms has become the perfect combination of her interest in nature, her mad crafting skills, and her keen eye for design.
"I love how every celebration brings out something new, and can't wait to bring your unique vision to life. By letting the seasons and flowers guide me, I am able to provide one-of-a-kind arrangements and floral decor for any occasion." -Liz Blaikie
Whether you simply need an assortment of succulent favors or dream of Pinterest worthy peonies on every surface, Blooms can help!
Blooms was started with the idea to bring another option to floral decor. In a business based on ephemeral beauty, our focus is on being as eco-friendly and budget savvy as possible, while still providing high quality products and custom designs.
Our practice includes:
Sourcing local, seasonal, farm direct or certified sustainably grown flowers
Recycling vessels and plants through our rental program
Mixing in homegrown, seasonal, potted plants and arrangements to ensure some décor will last long after the party
Crafting and DIY supply services, advice and inspiration
Servicing the local Massachusetts and New England community, never affiliated with national wire services
Ordering fresh cut flowers on an as-needed, made-to-order basis only, reducing waste
Composting all stems, leaves and floral waste, never thrown in the trash
How much do you charge?

How does your rental program work?
When planning an event, we want to offer the most affordable options to our clients. One way we can do this is by renting decor items, as well as the vessels our arrangements come in. This not only reduces the price for each arrangement, but also saves you from having thirteen matching vases, and a 'Sign our Guestbook' sign, lingering around after your event.
What flowers are available for my event?
Although we do have the ability to order in almost any type of flower, at any time, from anywhere in the world, we prefer to source seasonal flowers, from the closest available growers. Our location within the expansive garden center that is Lancaster Gardens, also gives us the unique ability to use our own homegrown plants, flowers, succulents and cacti in our arrangements. Come see what we have growing, or use the table below to see some of the most common seasonal choices.
