Tell me a little bit about your business!
Blossoms by Jilliann was started in 2011. I actually was the Head of Employee Relations at a well known insurance company for 15 years prior to starting Blossoms, and I began this journey after the birth of our 4th son. I have always had a love for florals, cultivated from a college job at a garden and floral center. I took a chance and it grew bigger and quicker than I ever expected. I provide all areas of wedding and event floral design…bouquets, ceremony, reception, and on-site coordination. I have worked at EVERY venue in the greater Pittsburgh area.
What makes your work unique? Why should brides and grooms hire you?
You get a very personalized service with me. I meet with all potential brides; I do all of the ordering, the designing, and set-up. I’m laid back and absolutely stay within your budget.
What is your ideal client like?
I like them all but I especially love a bride with a general vision and budget. Together, we can come up with the best florals that suit your style and wallet. I have worked with every type of bride. My clients include local players from the Steelers, Penguins, and Pirates to the small backyard family barbecue bride. I love them all!
What is your approach to floral design? How do you work with couples to bring their floral dreams to life?
I only order what I need, thus keeping your costs low. I don’t order extra flowers to sell them later. If I have extra, I use them in your event. I love being included in a Pinterest board! I’m honest about what will work and what doesn’t. I know the ins and outs of the venues and can provide details and insight on what works there. Above all else, I stay within your budget!
What other items do you offer?
Everything is included in my quotes – from the rentals of candles, chuppahs, service, to set-up and delivery.
