"Mum, are you the REAL florist?" That was the question, from my then 4-year-old daughter, as she listened in on a brain storming session I was having with a life long friend about the business I wanted to create. It went a little like this: "I am a REAL florist. I have REAL qualifications. I have a REAL passion for flowers and a REAL talent for making floral creations that truly reflect and connect with the REAL people they have been made for." At this moment, sitting around our kitchen table, The Real Florist was created! Weddings, corporate events and workshop were my passion, then COVID happened and the foreseeable future of the business was lost. I was flowering from my kitchen bench with my kids by my side, dreaming of coffee and one day owning a florist café. So we pivoted the business. Now, here we are, nearly two years later, in a beautiful space that incorporates everything we love!! As someone who loves meeting people and being involved in my community, it fills me with joy to be provided love, spreading joy and providing thanks, or delivering a heartfelt sorry. My team and I put a little piece of our heart into every arrangement we make. We pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality arrangements across the border with flowers that are full of personality. Our flowers are full of personality, because we get to know you on a personal level. It is a beautiful thing to love what you do every day and have built the business to work around my family has been the most amazing experience.
