best thing about being a florist: the first glimpse of something coming into season and the mad dash to get your hands on it first.
favourite flower combination: our signature style is vintage, vintage, vintage......the shop breaths vintage and the girls do it with their eyes closed. my favourite flower combination would have to be gardenias, field roses and hydrangea.
most memorable event/occasion you have done flowers for: breakfast for a fashion magazine at bennelong. it was just a perfect time of the year! we used david austin roses of various colours, hydrangea, love lies, peonies, camellia flowers, giant pears, lemons and the list goes on...all the styling was left up to us- a florist's dream.
you are inspired by: travelling to source new products for the shop. my guru and fashion.
