Blüm, Design in Flowers was founded in 2005 by Jordan Gladow. We are a floral design studio focused exclusively on creating exceptionally beautiful flowers and decor for weddings, events and weekly deliveries.
Jordan Gladow began professionally working with flowers at a small shop in Salem, Oregon while attending college as an Art History major at Willamette University. Several years later she decided to develop her passion for floral design and accepted an internship with Mary Jane Vaughan Designs in London, England. While working for Mary Jane she also took intensive floral design courses from Paula Pryke and Judith Blacklock. After her time in London, Jordan moved to Boston where she worked at Winston Flowers in their weddings and events department as well as providing weekly flowers for Boston companies and private homes. In 2005 she decided to move back home to the Pacific Northwest and soon after started Blum with the hope of providing Portland with the same quality of floral design and service that she had grown to love in both London and Boston.
Blüm’s floral designs have been featured in Oregon Bride Magazine, Portland Bride and Groom, PDX Magazine, The Oregonian, Sunset Magazine, Gourmet Magazine and in Judith Blacklock’s book “The Judith Blacklock’s Encyclopedia of Floral Design.” In addition, Jordan has been interviewed about flowers on AM Northwest, Portland Weddings Style and WE TV. In 2012 we were honored to be named the Best Florist in Portland by the Wedding Expert Foundation. For 5 consecutive years we have received the amazing honor of being voted one of the top florists in Portland, Oregon by Oregon Bride Magazine and in 2009, 2010, 2013 and 2014 took home the top price.
