Why flowers?

My hope at Blossoms and Blessings is to be instrumental in creating a wedding that truly reflects you and your dream for your wedding day.  We hope to get to know you and your love story so we can bring those details to life in your flowers.  We desire to make your wedding planning as uncomplicated as possible and be a blessing to you and your guests.


Designer and owner – Barbara Forbes

In God’s timing, the arms of Jesus greeted my husband in 2007 – and nearly 18 months later I IMG_0384began researching flower design schools in hope of finding a way to share comfort and joy with others. The dream of Blossoms and Blessings grew from my heart’s desire to bring joy to others through flowers. After five years working in a flower shop, my passion to help create beautiful wedding and event flowers has taken form in Blossoms and Blessings.

All of the design work is done at my home in Newberg.  Let’s get together over a  cup of tea or coffee at your favorite cafe to hear all about your plans and hopes for your wedding or special event. Your special day – whether small and intimate or an elaborate gathering should be a reflection of you.  My goal is to be a blessing to you and your family during the planning stages and especially on your wedding day.
