The women of A Sea of Bloom have been running full tilt this week to be sure that they have everything you need for this holiday weekend, from napkins to glasses, centerpieces and the perfect hostess gift. In our cooler we have a wide array of ready-made centerpieces and arrangements. In the front of house we have plants, bouquets, aprons, containers and even caramels, which all work as great holiday gifts.


So focused on the main course that you forgot dessert? A sprinkle Saltwest's Salted Caramel Chocolate on vanilla ice cream can not be beat, even by pumpkin pie.

We will be closed on Monday so, come and see us before then. 

very unique

unique gift ideas

From the entire staff at A Sea of Bloom we want to wish you a very happy thanksgiving!

We got what you want....

It's that time of year again. September. The kids are back in school and you are struggling with the routine, packed lunches, chauffeuring to every activity imaginable...that is, if you have kids. If not, while lucky you, your favorite beach isn't packed and, now this. For those of you in the midst of September's struggles, consider this a treat, and for those of you breezing through the month, consider it the icing on your cake. A SEA OF BLOOM IS HAVING A JEWLERY SALE. Starting THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15- FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, two cabinets will be bursting at the seams with sterling sliver and gemstone rings, bracelets, earrings and necklaces at 35% off. Of course, after Thursday I imagine those seams will be less stressed. 

Owner Karen Stones wants to bring the best to Sooke and painstakingly chooses each piece of jewelry on the shelves at A Sea of Bloom. “It's one of the things I find so fascinating about gemstones,” says Stones. “There are just so many types and cuts. I always try to find unique stones or settings when purchasing for the store,” she says.

She is also interested in the healing properties of gemstones. “Each different stone has a very unique physical, emotional and spiritual property,” she says. When I asked for examples, these were just few she gave, with help from her Big Book of Crystals: 

Peridot – Physical Properties
This stone is used to elevate heaviness of heart and all manner of heart related imbalances. It helps strengthen the blood and can be used to counter anemia and poor oxygenation. It is also an excellent stone to use in recovery from tobacco addiction. I can think of better reasons but buying jewelery sure seems like a great excuse to finally kick the habit... if I could name names here, I would.


Rose Quartz – Spiritual Properties
The Rose Quartz is one of the most humble and yet most powerful of the spiritual allies. It turns the heart towards love and bathes the body, mind and spirit in that healing and enlightening frequency. Plus, it's pink.

Lapis Lazuli – Emotional Properties
This stone helps you move your own consciousness beyond the mundane and allows you to identify habits, patterns and lessons that may be difficult to perceive and may be blocking you spiritually. And, it is just so beautiful.

So come in to A Sea of Bloom this Thursday and pick out your perfect piece.

Sunday Funday


We are into the last week of June. Prom has come and gone, recitals are over and school is almost out. As we welcome July and the the first real tastes of summer, like those fresh picked strawberries at the Saturday Sooke Market, here, at A Sea of Bloom we are looking to freshen up too. Come by and you will see a brighter, lighter, beach themed window at A Sea of Bloom this week. A key element of our window displays are the furniture pieces brought to us by artist Deb Wilson. Deb's works embody that beach house, shabby chic vibe and her creations can be found throughout the store from dressers, desks and chairs to chalk boards, mirrors and hooks. 

One trip to A Sea of Bloom and you can find just the right touches to switch up your own home decor to match these sunny, summer days.

Of course a succulent garden does well in this heat....

….and nothing shows off a summer tan like silver.

Above all, flowers can brighten any space!
