What do you get from a florist with flowers? Pure magic.
Sure you can pick up flowers or the odd mixed bunch from a supermarket or a petrol station but have you ever stopped to wonder how ‘fresh’ those “fresh flowers” are, and if anyone lovingly put them together?
Florist with Flowers is a specialty florist set up for just that: to lovingly put together fresh flowers for any occasion or, no occasion. Our talented team of Emmra, Karina and Shannon each bring their own special brand of magic to the business, each with unique talents and strengths that make this business flourish. Behind the scenes co-owner Julie as well as our little bud Joshua work diligently on the website, sourcing giftware and making sure the heir to the business is growing and learning all that he can!
Want to know a little bit more about our special people?
Owners Emmra and Julie met and fell in love in their early years in the industry. Initially Emmra began in distribution in 1994, and Julie had started her career as a junior florist back in 1991. From there the two have gone from strength to strength, learning the ins and outs of the industry and learning how to one day make their business a success. Julie rose through the ranks of a large retail and online florist from retail assistant, to store manager, retail manager and eventually became the Operations Manager before she and Emmra took ownership of what is now known as ‘Florist with Flowers’.
Emmra– is our charasmatic, dedicated purchasing manager who takes great pride in what he buys, sources and creates.He certainly doesn’t mind getting his hands dirty! He loves his trips out to the farms where he buys our stock direct and he passionately pots up our gorgeous succulents and terrariums by hand.
Karina– our talented, and diplomatic store manager creates beautiful, rustic, organic arrangements whilst also managing to keep the peace! Karina began her career 13 years ago and is a qualified and very particular florist, with a keen eye for colour and design. She has a down to earth personality, and finds it a touch hard to relinquish control at times, but, that is, after all what makes her so good at what she does.
Shannon– is our resident perfectionist. Every team needs one and we love that ours is qualified in both floristry and design. Shannon takes great pride in all that she does and for this reason, has fantastic customer service skills and is always looking to better herself.
I can’t tell you how many times a day customers come in with a fulldose of flower envy- “oooh what a lovely job you have“….”oooh I always wanted to be a florist“. Its true, we are a lucky bunch (yes, I know what I did there!) and each day we are blessed to head into ‘work’ to create beautiful, pretty things just for you.
So, if you love us and love what we do, show us some love (and likes!), and remember sharing is caring! We would love to meet you or some of your friends in store, on instagram, facebook or our mailing list soon!
