Someone asked me once what my favourite thing about floristry was... I found it hard to answer this question as all I knew was that I loved flowers and creating things with them. I started my training in 2008 and was fortunate enough to get a placement in an incredibly busy shop with an amazing reputation and heavy workload. I absolutely loved my placement instantly, and through the years that followed worked my way up to becoming the manager of the shop. In 2015 the shop was sold and this began a whole new adventure for me; LadyLissy Floristry was born. I didn't think that my passion for flowers could grow any more, but this journey has made me love my job on a completely new level and means that I now know the answer to my original question: whats my favourite thing about Floristry?
First are the stars of the show: the flowers themselves,. I love that I can buy the same variety of flowers week after week and every time they will have a slightly different colour, shape, scent, or petal formation, which makes them perfect to me. They are alive,natural beauties and every one is completely unique. We are spoilt with hundreds of new varieties flooding the flower markets every year and this just adds to the adventure of limitless possibilities. There is no set path of what works best; a lot of it comes through experience, product knowledge, and a very good eye for colours and textures. The rest comes from having amazing clients who want to try something new and challenge the ordinary. My last answer to the question are my clients. I love being able to provide a personal service and make all of your floristry visions a reality, being challenged to come up with new ideas: versions of a classic or a completely new concept keeps my creative energy well and truly flowing!
Thank you so much for taking the time to peruse my website and I look forward to hearing from you. Lissy X
