About Daily Bouquet Blog
It’s been found that getting a bouquet brings more natural and sincere joy to recipients than other gifts.

In Bloom Daily* is a curation of daily bouquets created by independent florists and home gardeners.

They say that how you start your day has the greatest impact on it, and I believe we should all begin with beauty! I hope the daily posts inspire you. If you see some lovely bouquets from your area florists or farmer’s markets that speak to you, please consider supporting them- you’ll both benefit!

Please join me: subscribe to In Bloom Daily* and receive an e-bouquet every morning. Just enter your email in the “Subscribe” field at the top of the page. If you enjoy one of my artworks, know that I am donating all proceeds from my 12×12″ pieces to Kiva, which helps empower recipients of their micro loans.

All the best,
Oana

About Oana

I’ve loved flowers since I can remember. I capture them in my art and live with them daily. While my background is in architecture, the longer I worked with buildings, the more respect I gained for nature and specifically, flowers. Having lived in San Francisco, I got to enjoy the abundant farmer’s markets weekly. So much so, that at one point I wanted to work weekends at a flower shop in addition to holding a full time job. (It was Oak Hill Farm – who offered their lovely, sustainable flowers at their Ferry Building location – that first inspired and sparked my awareness/desire of wanting to work with flowers. Thank you!) I’m doing the next best thing- creating art inspired by the beautiful bouquets of talented, independent florists.

I’ve envisioned this blog for many years now, and am happy to provide a daily e-bouquet, courtesy of the florists, home gardeners and photographers who created them.

In addition to showing a bouquet each day, I also use the posts as inspiration for my art. I currently live and work in Spokane, WA.

I’m so glad you have joined me here. Enjoy and thank you for your support! O*
