The Floral Design Company Bournemouth
I did not discover my love for flowers until my mid 20’s. I had always been artistic and highly creative experimenting with all sorts of mediums then one day a good friend of mine suggested I go to college to gain a professional qualification. At the time I was helping that friend with her cake business, painting bespoke designs on to the cakes. I went to the open day at a local college in London with a view to enrolling on a cake decorating course but instead found the floristry department! 14 years on including 8 years of professional training I have now gained my Level 4 qualification and have become a certified lecturer in Floristry teaching at Bournemouth and Basingstoke College.
Over these 14 years my style has developed and centred on beautiful detailing. Floristry to me is more than just arranging flowers in a vase it’s about creating something different for a client turning their designs and ideas into reality. I think it is really important for a florist to be diverse and flexible towards the client’s wishes but still to incorporate my own natural flair and twist to the design.
The first industry recognition of my development I achieved was winning the Southern Area UK Skills competition for Floristry. Since then I have gone on to achieve a Silver Gilt at the RHS Hampton Court Flower show and after winning the area heat, beat 400 florists from the UK to compete in the finals at the prestigious RHS Chelsea flower show during their centenary year.
These competitions have given me the freedom and flexibility to showcase my skills to industry professionals receiving valuable feedback and guidance for the future, all of which I incorporate into the running of my company.
