As a brief background, Buckeye Blooms is part of a growing “green” business and wedding industry that caters to clients who are seeking locally grown and environmentally friendly flowers and services. Most of the flowers in florists’ shops have been imported from South America or other regions of the world where they were treated with harmful chemicals. Having lived in Ecuador for over two years, I can attest to the amount of pollution and water shortages created by the commercial production of roses and other flowers that are destined for the U.S.
We believe there is a better way to grow flowers. In addition to being earth-friendly, the quality and freshness of our flowers is unrivaled in the region. Just as a home-grown tomato tastes better than a store-bought one, the freshest and most beautiful flowers come from the garden rather than the refrigerated section of a big box store . Our flowers arrive fresh and fragrant, just as nature intended.
We offer full floral design services and for brides seeking a unique way to choose their wedding flowers, we offer exclusive bridal “flower parties” on our picturesque family farm. For summer and early fall weddings, the bride and her bridesmaids have the opportunity to actually help pick flowers from our fields and gardens for their bouquets. We then give step-by-step instructions and help them to make their very own bridal bouquets. It is a fun and unique way for brides to create personalized bouquets for their special day.

I found some supercute Stitched Monkey Invitations from Polka Dot Designs and even a Pull String Pinata from Birthday Express. I love the idea of a pull string because it will really give the two-year-olds a chance to participate and not just stand around watching the older kids hit the pinata. Finally, there will be a Monkey Visor Craft courtesy of Oriental Trading.
I also know that here will be A LOT of balloons! Peyton is obsessed with balloons and can spot them anywhere, even if it is just a picture of one hanging up on the wall.
I am still in the process of organizing a guestlist, coming up with a menu, and figuring out what the rest of the decorations are going to be but, I am pretty proud of myself for what I have found/accomplished so far.
Tune in September 14th for pictures to see if I really pulled it off!
