Looking Back over 100 Blogposts

This is the one hundreth BloomersBlog! Unbelievable isn't it? Some of you have been on board since the very first post on August 19, 2008. Others have discovered us along the way. Here's a look back at some of the topics the Blog has touched on over the past 2 years....

We've certainly discussed all sorts of flowers. Hydrangea, Gardenia, Dahlias, Roses, Bouvardia, Camellias, Carnations, Cherry Blossoms, Amaryllis, and Poinsettia, right up to a review of all-green blossoms and 'blue' flowers.

Sex and the City was a theme a few times, with Carrie being the main fashionista flower lover.

Floral shoes made several appearances...not to mention floral hats, jewelry, and loads of floral accessories.

We scoped out pretend florists in the movies, and real florists in the White House and in Paris.

Holiday flowers of all sorts have been mulled over...Christmas wreaths, Thanksgiving centerpieces, Valentine roses, Halloween party pieces, and ideas for wedding and baby showers.

Flowers as food, flowers decorating food, and flowers resembling food have all been tasty topics.

We've been to gardens in Europe, from lavish castle gardens to grand carpet gardens in town squares and even vertical gardens, as well as wildflower gardens started by a First Lady.
And we can't forget the window boxes and container gardening either!

Wedding topics have ranged from this year's 'it' color of turquoise, to using succulents in place of flowers, and of course, weddings a la Paris.

We've compiled loads of information on topics such as why you should avoid wire services, how flowers are imported, how to buy, care and arrange flowers, and even how to wax flowers!
The 'new' style of flower arranging was reviewed, too, with some eye-popping designs featured.

We've found out fun information about Blooming Teas, and the making of perfumes.

We discovered flowers made of such diverse materials as paper, metal, frosting, Swarovski crystal, fruits and vegetables and even X-Rays.

And of course, famous weddings could not be ignored....
