Vendor Spotlight The Blooming Idea
At Ashelynn Manor, we believe that much of your wedding day success hinges on the professionals you hire to execute your vision and your dream. One of the ways we help our brides is by connecting you with some of our favorite wedding professionals in the Houston area. We choose them because they are reliable and the best in their field. Even though we refer to them as our preferred vendors, I guess you could say they are our wedding BFFs!
We are excited to announce that we will be shinning a spotlight on each of our preferred vendors in a special blog post series.
Today, we are shining our spotlight on Mary McCarthy with The Blooming Idea!
AM: Tell us about The Blooming Idea and your experience as a florist?
MM: I have been a florist for 15 years and opened my shop in 2002 in Magnolia, relocated to the Woodlands in 2007 and opened a second location in 2013. We have 9 floral designers on staff, 5 of which are Certified with the American Institute of Floral Design. The Blooming Idea has been voted Best Florist in the Woodlands for 6 consecutive years. We also have Weddingwire Couples’ Choice Award for 2015.
AM: What do you like best about decorating Ashelynn Manor? 
MM: One of my favorite areas to decorate is the gazebo. I love the outdoor country feel to it and often when I’ve decorated it a horse from the adjoining field would come over to the fence – it’s just such an idyllic, romantic setting. Of course the chapel is also beautiful and lends nicely to adding wedding colors with flowers on the pews and in the altar area.
AM: Do you have any tips for our Ashelynn Manor brides?
MM: Yes, a great way to re purpose ceremony flowers is to move them to the reception area after the ceremony and use on the buffet stations or accent tables.

Hear what other brides have said about The Blooming Idea: 
Mary was wonderful to work with and the flowers were stunning! I provided pretty vague ideas of colors and arrangements that I wanted and she turned it into an absolutely gorgeous display. Incredibly professional, calm, and collected amongst the havoc of a wedding. So many people commented on how gorgeous the flowers were, especially my bouquet, I kept it alive as long as I could! I would hands down go back to Mary any time I need flowers.
I worked with Mary McCarthy for my wedding flowers and was very pleased. She did an incredible job and was very helpful. She worked with me to help meet my budget and still create my dream wedding! Strongly recommend!
