black orchid and olivia

the shop: black orchid

location: 253 wardell road, dulwich hill
contact: 02 9559 7731
signature style: urban cool

the florist: olivia

number of years in floristry: 4

best thing about being a florist: funnily enough my career in floristry was 15 years in the making, so i still enjoy every aspect of it- from the dawn starts, to walking through the markets and hand-picking all the things i love that day, to delivering my little creations.

favourite flower combination: spanish moss, succulents and cattleya orchids.

most memorable event/occasion you have done flowers for: an enormous wedding at new year this year. peak heat season. peak rain season. peak grower holiday season. not only did we get through it, we had flowers arriving on the hour every hour from every corner of australia. hydrangea, roses and tuberose were as far as the eye could see. it was simply stunning!

you are inspired by: the changing seasons and the people around me.

you are passionate about: my life, my business, and my family- i love all three.
