Elevate Your Entertaining Game

The season of gathering, celebrating, and indulging is upon us. The Bloom team all love to be the “hostest with the mostest” when it comes to food and entertaining. It’ll come as no surprise that we’ve had a lot of fun with our new line of tabletop and gourmet items. We’ve expanded our collection and want to share what’s new. While we can’t possibly share everything you’ll find here at Bloom, here’s our “Top Ten” favorites, just in time for the holidays. 


1. Jams  

From savory to sweet to zesty, there’s a wide range of flavors. We love our jams and jellies for more than just toast - we recommend the Seville Orange spread as a sauce for pork and the Amaretto Peach Pecan inside of shortbread thumbprint cookies. The top pick for fall? The Pumpkin Honey butter. Try it swirled into cinnamon rolls or keep it “healthy” as an apple dip. 


2. Charcuterie Accessories 

Charcuterie is such a great way to feed a crowd - big or small. At my house, we have a LOT of Sunday night “charcuterie” meals. Our go-to is Genoa salami, goat cheese, apples and popcorn. And while that usually happens on a paper plate, I do like to dress up my display when we have guests! These little wood bowls are great for nuts, olives, dips and more. And the mini fork, spoon and spreader are just the right size for topping crackers or veggies.  



3. Stoneware Baker 

This stoneware dish is a lovely piece to add to your baking and entertaining collection. At 11”x11” It’s the perfect size for a quiche, casserole or appetizer dip to share. We love the big handles for easy carrying to family potlucks. Our top gifting tip? Order our “Bake and Bloom” centerpiece. It features seasonal flowers inside the stoneware dish for the gift that keeps on giving. 


4. Mini Baker 

This little guy is soooo cute and versatile! These stoneware Mini Bakers include a lid and hold approximately 1 cup. They are perfect for a single serve dessert  and are a fun gift. Ask your Bloom designers to fill it with flowers, or pair it with a seasonal jam or some decorative spreaders to make it extra special!


5. Crocheted Pot Holder

Ok, ok, we know - it seems a little silly to make a place on a top ten list for a pot holder, right? Trust us, this little guy deserves its spot! It’s perfectly chunky ,and pretty enough to leave out all the time as a quick pot holder or under a warm candle. We like to pair this with a decorative dish towel as a nice shower gift. 


6. Seasonings 

Spice up your culinary creations with our seasoning blends and salts that add that special touch to every dish. We’ve got a few classics as well as some unique mixes - the “Finch & Fennel” blend invokes the classic flavors of French cuisine. Sharp yellow mustard powder blended with fennel, parsley, and aromatic garlic and onion give this seasoning its fragrant, herbaceous flavor. 

For sweater weather, we love mulling spices to create lots of warm and cozy drinks and recipes. We’ll share a recipe resource here!  


7. Gift Sets 

Giving the gift of gourmet is easy with our gift sets. You’ll find one for any taste and budget in our Gourmet collection. Our kitchen and gourmet items make for exquisite gift baskets that are perfect for foodie friends, bridal showers, or housewarming celebrations. And here's the fun part: we can create custom gift boxes with items you bring in, making your gift as unique as your recipient! 

8. Honey

A “sweet” gift! We carry Savannah Bee Company products because as florists we support their mission - that it’s all about the bees! Sustainable beekeeping and education is important and we are happy to share their delicious honey and honey-based skincare with you. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but their Chocolate Whipped Honey and Hot Honey are definite contenders. The whipped honey is a fun alternative to peanut butter or Nutella, and my kids like it on graham crackers. For the grown ups? The hot honey is awesome mixed into a whiskey lemonade or drizzled over flatbreads or biscuits. You can sample all 10 of our honey products in Bloom.    


9. Dips

Dip it real good! Our new Lemon Dill Horseradish spread is perfect for holiday roasts or prime rib. I like it on a veggie tray too as a “grown up” alternative to ranch dip. Leftover turkey is literally magical on a sandwich with our Cranberry Walnut relish, cream cheese and bacon. 


10. Wine Flower Box 

New at Bloom! Pair a lovely array of flowers with a bottle of wine or cider. This is a wonderful hostess gift - or send it for a birthday, anniversary or retirement celebration! Be sure to ask our designers about using colors that fit your occasion or the season.
