It seems like only yesterday when, as an excitable child of nine, I tentatively unwrapped the secrets of that brown paper package my father had brought home. Something special. Something just for me.

Running down those steep and uneven stone steps into the Kantina, I must have spent the whole day playing with those beautiful dahlias, carnations, chrysanthemums and gladioli I had freed from their protective paper sheath.

Fast forward – rather appropriately – to Workers Day, 1st May 2007. The day when I decided to start that little experiment. The experiment I called Flower Arts.

It wasn’t easy to fit this part-time love around my full-time commitments, sourcing the best blooms available from the local shops and suppliers, but I vividly remember standing back – having just finished decorating my very first wedding with fresh flowers – exhausted, sweating, shaking with stress!

As time went by, that stress was replaced by a feeling of achievement and a sense of pride. It was clear that this little experiment was growing and maturing, the abundance of blooms being surpassed only by the abundant realisation that my part-time pleasure was now outgrowing my full-time obligations.

After just five short years, it was time to grasp the rose quite literally by the thorns, and commit to my baby 100%. Flower Arts was no longer a back room hobby – Flower Arts was now in business full-time!

Focused on creating something different for the local market, we started to look to overseas suppliers, directly importing our own top-quality flowers and foliage direct from the professionals in the Dutch flower auctions. Picked, packed and shipped by our trusted partners, direct to our growing list of valued customers.

From our roots in a small room at home, to being commissioned to decorate the venue for the 2015 Commonwealth Heads of Government gala dinner, providing arrangements for Hollywood wrap parties, embellishing foreign embassies and government departments – and of course, making those special days even more special for our hundreds of brides and grooms – it’s been a crazy but rewarding decade of different!

But that’s not the end of the story. 2017 promises to be a special year, and we have some great surprises in store.

We’d like to thank you all for believing in us and entrusting us with your events. Without you, we couldn’t have made it this far…

…and with you, we intend to go even further, maybe even beyond that too!
