It all started when we were wee little bird's ; those daisy chains and wild flower bouquets we made for my mom and dad. Mel and I (Aim) would sit for hours in the warm sunshine and cool breeze on the back hill, scourging for wild daises, butter cups, snapdragons and dandies. We love flowers, we love the complexity, delicacy, fragrance and mystery. Flowers convey emotions and personality through colour, texture and arrangement.
Flowers can tell a visual story about you, your passions, your reflections, your sensuality.

Flowers have been Mel's life as a professional designer schooled in arts and design and Floral design from Canada to the Netherlands and back again. Together we would love to help you express yourself for your special occasion by creating something just for you.

You can put your trust in us because...
Schooling in Art's and Design at Sheridan College Oakville, Professional floral design program from Humber College in Toronto Ontario AND within a week of finishing her year long study in Toronto she shipped off to Gouda, Netherlands for a year to study under a well respected Master Florist. In Holland she journeyed through the Dutch Master Floral program with her girlfriend and Master Florist Hanny. LET'S JUST SAY THE GIRL CAN DESIGN!
Recently Mel stepped away from the fresh flower industry and now WE have the pleasure to be apart of our most favorite vintage floral movement.
We simply adore creating wedding bouquets and decor from vintage fabrics, brooches and paper flowers. It is truly something special when we can shape the flowers by hand and style them into a bouquet that we have envisioned with our clients.
Each piece of fabric, paper or jewellery is specifically chosen for colour, texture, shimmer or movement, each an integral piece of the wedding story.
