Q&A with the Team
We believe that flowers have the ability to heal, to bring joy and to transfer emotions.
Our mission is to exceed our customer’s expectations, pluck ideas from their head that they didn’t even know existed and to deliver more than they had envisioned. To create beautiful, inspiring works of art with nature.
I originally began working from home under a different name (From the Heart Flowers) in 2005 and then purchased Thrive Flowers in 2010, gradually merging the two. I started out specialising in Weddings with the forward-thinking idea back then to start a home consulting service, where I was able to visit Brides in their homes with their families and get to know them (their likes/dislikes etc) It soon became a success so I decided to move into a Collingwood studio and purchase the corporate business “Thrive Flowers & Events”
Meet that team:
- Alyssa, Founder and Head Florist
- Rosie, Co-Owner, Operations and Marketing
- Kris, Senior florist and Creative Consultant
- Steph, Qualified florist and all rounder
- Simone, 1st year Apprentice
- Rana, senior creative consultant
- Bruce, dedicated floral only courier
We provide full Wedding services and flowers and styling for Corporate events.
Anything from a simple bouquet or arrangement to a full-blown wedding/event including, not only flowers, but décor, styling/theming and hire.
We have a huge range of hire items, anything from glassware to signing tables, from umbrellas to arbours, flower walls to candelabras.
We love to meet with all our brides face to face, sometimes it’s not possible, but if it is, then we invite you to our studio in Collingwood for a private consultation. It generally takes about an hour and we spend time looking at your inspiration, going thorough our flower reference books and getting all of your wish list out of your head an into an itemised quote. We still offer home consultations, however most of our brides now want to be amongst the action so they enjoy coming into the studio; it creates a lot of interest and inspiration, there’s always a lot going on here.

News from the Garden
Epic #foamfree head-table runner created onsite for J&T.⠀
Using #nofloralfoam can take more time as things can’t be made in advance as easily… But it’s something that’s important to us and we’re striving every day to challenge ourselves, educate our clients and work towards becoming 100% foam free.⠀
It’s not always easy; the industry and therefore the clients have learnt to become accustomed to the ease of using foam and the shapes and designs that can be created with it. But it is not biodegradable and a huge hazard to marine life, as so much of it goes down the drain. ⠀
The challenge of learning to create our designs differently is exciting and thinking outside the (floral foam) brick is incredibly rewarding.⠀
Would you go foam free for your wedding?⠀
