On Valentine’s Day, exactly 25 years ago is when Hearts Bloom Event Design opened its doors...so this Valentine’s seemed like the perfect time to begin anew. There are so many wonderful and amazing stories behind Hearts Bloom, and the last 25 years have been a grand adventure but Hearts Bloom no longer matched the passion, joy and exuberance that I have for creating and designing beautiful events that reflect today's current market. It was time for a change, a re-brand, a re-start…to begin with the launch of a new name…same heart, new bloom…Santa Barbara Style.
The re-Launch Party on Valentine’s Day February 14th 2012 was one amazing PARTY! With over 150 of our dearest top industry professionals and friends in celebration, the shop was beyond full…we moved cocktail tables to the outside sidewalk so people could relax while waiting for a peek inside. The beautifully renovated interior was decorated for the occasion with amazing flowers filling every space…except of course for those already occupied by rich delicious chocolate, which there was in nooooo shortage of thanks to the new chocolatier in town… Chocolats du CaliBressan. Guests were treated to sweet treats and beautiful décor as we sipped Champagne Kir Royales with black raspberries.
