Bloom is a small, family-owned floral delivery subscription service in Sacramento. We deliver fresh, local bouquets right to you each week or month. Our blooms are perfect, everyday bouquets ready to bring some joy to your home or office! All of our blooms come from right here in Northern California — either from our own small suburban farm or from other local flower farmers. Unlike companies that import flowers from other countries or far-flung parts of the country, our blooms are sourced right here in Northern California. You’ll be supporting farmers less than a day’s drive away from Sacramento and getting the freshest flowers possible at the same time.

Natalie has shared a love of flowers with her grandmother since she was a child. Natalie’s small family guides the way she runs her business. Florecita does not spray any herbicides or pesticides because her children are being raised on the same land that she grows her flowers & for her, the choice is simple: she owes it to her children & all children, to leave the Earth better than she came to it. Florecita exceeds organic standards because Natalie believes that we are all connected. Florecita also utilizes no- till methods; these methods are better for all beings; from native pollinators to the tiny organisms in the soil, and for the lovely people who frequent Florecita’s Farm Stand.

Florecita runs an Honor System Farm Stand April – October and features each season’s most magnificent blooms. Natalie loves sharing her creativity with her clients. She creates everything from curated arrangements to celebrate momentous occasions, bridal bouquets and a variety of special events. Natalie moved to Auburn when she and her husband started their family; no place has ever felt more like home. Her design aesthetic is reminiscent of her love for Auburn’s breathtaking landscape. Contact Natalie to make all of your Florecita dreams come true.

I started Flourish with the belief that every wedding should be a unique reflection of the couple. Every couple has a story and that story is beautiful. Using the freshest, seasonal and local flowers to inspire, amaze and to tell that story is my passion.

My husband Jim and I were married in 1994. Aside from having everyone we loved in attendance, we knew a few things needed to happen for our wedding to feel authentic to us as a couple. I wanted a wedding gown that was simple and classic (It did have a butt bow… it WAS 1994), Jim, a musician, wanted to choose all the music, and I absolutely had to carry peonies down the aisle. I wore a floral brocade gown and carried Sarah Bernhardt peonies. We danced the night away, with our closest friends, to such gems as “The Groove is in the Heart” and “Friday I’m in Love.”

When I design flowers for a wedding, I am as invested in those flowers as I was in 1994 and I placed those precious peonies in my own bridal bouquet. Every time I see a pink peony I think back to that day in May. Your wedding flowers should be just as perfect and just as meaningful.

Redhead Flowerbed started in 2017 and is a small scale family flower farm located in Rio Linda. Amber and Aaron graduated from Rio Linda High School where they first met and started dating, and Amber’s Grandmother owns the property that is farmed. Amber is the driving force behind the business but so much of the heavy lifting would not be possible without Aaron’s help. The land has been dormant for close to 30 years, and it’s our goal to bring it back to life through organic practices and no-till methods. We primarily grow for seasonal CSA shares but also offer DIY buckets and plan to begin offering wholesale to florists in 2019. We sell our extra blooms at the Rio Linda Farmers Market, the occasional pop-up around Sacramento, and through direct requests via email, Facebook or Instagram for small-scale arrangements.

Dawn Creek Farm is located in North Sacramento, and focuses on offering seasonal specialty blooms and fun foliage for local flower lovers and designers. We are a wife and husband team that moved from the Santa Cruz area to Sacramento in 2017, and after nearly a decade of farming and flowering for others we now have a chance to invest in our own land and vision! In addition to running the farm, Kori is a textile artist/teacher and an active natural dye producer for the bay area Fibershed, and Toby is a local contractor specializing in Japanese timberframe construction and custom homes.

We love the joy and life that fresh local flowers spark in people’s hearts, and want to be able to offer designers beautiful, unusual, and wild floral elements that are not currently available in the Sacramento flower scene. We incorporate low and no-till methods on our farm, and use organically certified inputs. Our farm’s small scale and ecological growing practices in turn support the building of soil structure and biodiversity, and our blooms are free of toxic chemical preservatives and pesticides common in the global flower industry—in short, we grow flowers that you can feel good burying your face in!

My name is Jamie, and while my love of flowers is inherited from my mother (who often made us late to school so that we could stop and smell the sweet peas growing on the side of the road), the decision to embrace this appreciation professionally is my own. What started as an internship with Emily Thompson Flowers in NYC led to a fervor for every flower, whether fancy or floppy, and I eventually took on the role of Events Director for EMILY’S luxury design studio. After four years working in Manhattan, I have relocated to Sacramento where I am enthusiastically  embracing a new local ecology and it’s homegrown abundance.
