If there’s one thing you should know about us, it’s that any excuse is a good excuse to gather people together. After several months in business, we decided it was more than time to celebrate the launch of Queen City Blooms. Flowers, friends, and food are the perfect party combo in our book!

We held our launch party this past Sunday at The Creamery Arts Center here in Springfield, Missouri. As people walked in the door, they were greeted by festive balloons and sweet smelling floral arrangements in Queen City Blooms brand colors, lavender and burgundy.

A Build Your Own Bouquet Bar was the focal point of the event, where guests could choose their own flowers and wrap them for easy (and eye catching!) transportation. It was a ton of fun seeing what everyone chose, listening as people paired different flowers together to decide what they liked best. Several types of roses, mums, stock, and limonium were some of the ingredients available.

People really seemed to enjoy digging in and creating such different design combinations. Some created chic pastel bouquets while others picked playful bright color palettes. The green ball dianthus in particular seemed to pique people’s interest. (The bright green pom pom-like flower pictured below.)

We had the best time chatting with everyone about what Queen City Blooms has to offer, as well as teaching people how to assemble hand-held bouquets.

We want to extend a huge thank you to each and every person who came by to show their support. Seeing not only our friends and family, but also meeting so many new people was overwhelmingly the highlight of our week. Special shout out, as well, to all of the friends and family who contributed in some way to making our launch party possible. You are so appreciated and we could NOT have done it without you!

This weekend still has us reeling. We are just feeling incredibly excited and encouraged, and can’t wait to see what’s to come. Thank you, thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.
