We made it!!!⁣ .⁣ .⁣ This is one of the 15 wedding bouquets Alyssa created on the weekend.⁣ .⁣ .⁣ I'm so grateful to work by my best friend's side every day. . . Alyssa is not only a floral genius, she's hardworking, inspirational, motivational, a damn funny chick and the best business partner a girl could have.⁣ .⁣ .⁣ I'm so proud of her and this business we're continuing to build. . . We're most definitely #notyouraverageflorist⁣

Happy hump day!⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ If you work a 9-5 congratulations, you're on the home stretch!⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ If you're a little bit nuts (like us!) and work in the events industry, hold on to your hats, your week's just about to kick off.⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ Either way cake is always on the cards!⁣⠀ ⁣. . ⁣📷 @lemonade.lane

We always aim to be off-site before the bridal party arrive.⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ It helps create that magical vibe of a wedding, when all the ideas and the vision you've planned for so long finally come together.⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ But sometimes the bridal party rock up early and in the rush of the moment, as you're adding the final touches and someone is sweeping and someone else is adjusting that last little detail and then you hear the bride gasp "WOW!".⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ It gives us such a buzz!⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ And well, it makes us kinda want to hang around, like behind a curtain or something, just to see the reactions.⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ But that's not entirely professional, so we'll just settle for the occasional early bridal party.⁣⠀

Bec’s bouquet.⁣⠀ …

Bec's bouquet.⁣⠀ ⁣.⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ As some of you know, delivering the bouquets is one of my favourite parts of our business.⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ Arriving to the bride is always a little nerve racking but in a good way.⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ And to see your bride look closely at her bouquet that has, until now, only been 1 dimensional pictures and words on a quote and for her to say "ooh, what's that" or "ooh, I love that one" while pointing at a particular flower... Or she might smell it, or ask to hold it, and you can just see the excitement growing, as she realises it's hers and she will shortly carry it down the aisle... It's just the best.⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ .⁣⠀ Thank you to all our brides who trust us with this moment, really does give us all the feels, each and every time!⁣⠀

Saturday stunners

Saturday stunners! . . Sometimes you gel with your brides like you've known them forever, Gaby was one of those brides. . . She dropped into our studio a few days after the wedding with gifts, a thank you card (swipe to read) and the biggest hugs ever. . . This is our "why". . . It's why we get up at stupid-o'clock to hand-pick wedding flowers from the market, why we complete late night pack-downs after all the guests have gone, why we spend countless hours at the desk creating custom quotes, why we drive all over the country side to set up special backdrops, why we spend (sometimes) entire nights at the workbenches putting the designs together, why we climb endless ladders and stairs to suspend inspiring installations and access awkward back entrances to venues, why we constantly push ourselves to improve our business and to quicken our response time, always hungry to learn new techniques and to bring you THE BEST FLORAL EXPERIENCE WE POSSIBLY CAN. . . Each and every time this response is our goal, it’s our “why”. . . Our "why" is you. 🥰#notyouraverageflorist #haveflowerswilltravel📷 Kyra Boyer Photography⠀ #thriveflowers #thriveweddingflowers #melbourneweddingflowers #weddingflowersdecor #weddingflowersau #weddingflowersinspiration #weddingflowersdecoration #weddingflowersideas #weddingflowersdesign #weddingflowerspecialist #weddingflowersinspo #weddingflorist #weddingfloristmelbourne⠀ #weddingbouquetmelbourne
