Where can I buy flowers?
Currently we sell fresh flowers in two Half Moon Bay locations: In front of Sam's Chowder House restaurant at 4210 North Cabrillo Highway, on most weekends (weather dependent), and seasonally at Mariner's Church at 100 Stone Pine Road, on Sundays, between 9am and 12:30pm.
Be sure to follow us on Facebook @bubblesandbloomshmb to learn our latest locations and schedules.
Can I pre-order flowers?
Yes! We love pre-orders because it helps us manage our product, inventory, and staffing, and enables us to provide beautiful arrangements for you just when you need them. Please select and purchase your choice of arrangement by Tuesday, and it will be available for pick up at Sam's Chowder House on Saturdays between 9-11 am, and seasonally at Mariner's Church from 9am - 12:30pm. Please specify when you plan to pick it up in the notes section of your shopping cart.
Why do you do this?
We all work to live, but it's really great if you can also live to work. Currently over 75% of people with disabilities are unemployed in California. Job choices that are meaningful are few, and our community very much wants to contribute. Our goal is to change those statistics by offering meaningful employment for people with special needs, while providing a quality product and value to the community.
Where are the flowers from?
We source our flowers from local farms and growers when possible. We also have a small farm of our own nearby and our future plans include using that location to grow flowers.
What is a "Bubble Bowl"?
A simple low glass vase in the shape of a "bubble", bubble bowls allow our community to make beautiful creations in any color. Our team can more easily organize and place the flowers into taped sections of the vases for beautiful arrangements. Our customers love them because they make elegant table arrangements, but sit low enough that they can be kept on a table during a meal without being in the way of great conversation.
Can you provide flowers for events?
With advance notice, we love to help you with parties, receptions and weddings, and can provide bubble bowls for those events. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you deliver?
For the 2019 holiday season, we will be delivering flowers for a nominal fee of $5, within the cities of Moss Beach, Montara, El Granada, and Half Moon Bay. For our regular season, we are unable to deliver at this time, but we have several pickup locations on the coast, including Sam's Chowder House and Mariner's Church.
