With a passion for flowers. My father has always had an affection for flowers which he passed down to me. Brittany and I have always been close and we share the same passion for the industry, so we decided to start the business together. We believed that Brisbane needed a more personal and intimate florist. The ‘Shoppe’ mixes the European feel with fresh and modern ideas that show the art of floristry. We want our clients to always feel refreshed and inspired when they visit us.

PORK BELLY CHICHARRÓNES & BABY PEPPERS Peasant Spanish Restaurant
What is your favourite part about being a florist? For me, it’s knowing that people are giving
something I created to their loved one or displaying it in their home to brighten up their life. It sounds silly, but it’s like you get to enter a person’s life (even just for a little while) and make it a tiny bit better.
FLOWERS Dahlias Available all year long, in a range of colours.
What is your favourite flower and/or style? Wild romantic! I love to incorporate several different foliage groups with dark tones and florals to create an illusion of depth and a different feel.
What does a typical day in the life of a florist look like? As a florist, we’re not just a floral designer, but a stylist, interior designer, wedding co-ordinator, event planner, horticulturist and therapist! It’s not always glamorous, but we love every minute and wouldn’t change a thing!
Proteas The protea flower represents change and hope.
Smoky bush Dark foliage and perfect for an autumn wedding.
