The H.Bloom Gifts app is off to a great start, and we’ve now added the service to our website as well! We’re so excited to be hand-delivering a wide range of gifts alongside our namesake blooms, and we couldn’t make it happen without partnerships with some truly incredible businesses in each of our cities. We’re going to be taking some time to share a little more about the talented people behind each gift. First up is Tanya Ngangan of the utterly chic and absolutely delicious Bisous, Ciao Macarons.
Founded in 2004, Bisous, Ciao has been a labor of love for founder Ngangan. Having grown up at her mother’s Thai restaurant, a love and appreciation for food was instilled in her at an early age. Several years in Paris introduced her to the macaron, and training at Le Cordon Bleu allowed her to master the art of French patisserie. Today Bisous, Ciao operates out of two elegant boutiques on Bleecker and Stanton streets in lower Manhattan. With a unique approach to the classic confection, Ngangan’s shops feature inspired seasonal creations like poppy and lavender honey, as well as flavors that harken back to her days at her mother’s restaurant, such as Thai iced tea and kaffir lime.

H.Bloom designer Hannah D’Ottavio demonstrates how to use Spring Growth inspired florals, including green button chrysanthemums, flax leaves, pink cremones, green gladiolus, green hypericum berries and aspidistra leaves.
Branches have bloomed, and the early spring chills have lessened. With these seasonal changes behind us, we’re able to enjoy the new growth of spring. From fresh cut grass to newly foliated trees, greenery is everywhere. This crisp green foliage inspired this week’s arrangements, based on a palette filled with shades of green and pops of pink. Varietals like foxtail fern and green anthurium showcase these vivid greens of springtime, while calypso mokara brings an extra jolt of color.
Other varietals featured in this week’s collection include: pink bouvardia, calypso mokara, green lisianthus, green hypericum berries, green “shakira” alstroemeria, green button chrysanthemums, and flax leaves.
