Seasonal flowers for all occasions.

Blessed Blooms is a cut flower farm providing fresh, locally grown flowers for events and everyday enjoyment. Middle school principal by day and a flower farmer by night, April Smith has turned growing flowers into a business, sharing her flower farm experience with others. Her daughter, Alyssa Short, makes up the other half of their team, designing unique arrangements grown with love. They grow their own blooms from April through October and specialize in wedding florals, market bouquets, and floral subscriptions. In 2023, Blessed Blooms expanded into a location with local vendor farmers market and events as well as a vintage furniture and decor storefront.

There is no cost to attend, but registration is required. To register for any (or all) of the meetings in this series, visit or call (618) 695-2441.
