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
Want something aerial but don't know what to ask for or what will suit your venue & budget?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ We've been creating suspended installations for the past 4 years all over Melbourne and have a wealth of knowledge around what will work for your space and how to make it happen.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Shoot us some inspirational pics and we'll let you know how your vision can become a reality.
So, just while we're in the thick of it with tight timelines looming and flowers coming out our ears, we thought we'd take a second to let you know...⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Our bookings are already filling up for next season, so if you're thinking about who to book, shoot us an email, we'd love to hear your requirements!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Plus we've got a bunch of helpful info ready to go so you can see if we're going to be the right fit for you.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ But get in quick, next season's shaping up to be another big one!⠀
⠀ Ahh wedding season, we love you but you're intense.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ We're sending March off with a bang and pumping out 8 events this weekend, so if we don't immediately reply to your email or can't grab the phone in time because we're elbow deep in flowers, bear with us... ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Hopefully we can reply before April! #kiddingnotkidding 😂⠀ .⠀ .⠀ See you on the other side!⠀
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.⠀
Feeling chilly? We're going to ramp up the heat this Thursday with a tropical bloom workshop. Limited spaces are still available to get you some of those island vibes in our Collingwood studio.Head to www.bloomcollege.com.au to lock it in!
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!⠀

It may look grey but this was the Sunday of that obnoxious heatwave a couple of weeks back... . .⠀ So... pretty sure the guests would have been happy about it!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Stunning "triple halo" backdrop from @fulldebloom
Amanda & Tristan. . . These two are currently enjoying their reception as we speak! . . The George Ballroom has been on our ‘to do’ venue list for a while... . . So happy to finally get to create these #foamfree centerpieces in the space for these two love birds.@ The George Ballroom
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

Can't wait to show you!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Oh and happy long weekend to all you 9-5ers! . . As for the rest of you/us; you got this!!
More of Bec & Dvir's #foamfree suspended install at the gorgeous, local @thecraftandco space. .⠀ .⠀ They have the best beams.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ As an event florist that's something you find yourself saying apparently! 😂⠀
Let the party begin!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Apart from the fact you've just married your beloved, isn't half the fun of the wedding the epic party you get to enjoy afterwards?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Bec & Dvir finally getting a chance to cheers their nearest and dearest at another one of our fave local venues @thecraftandco ⠀ 📷 @sorrento_wedding_photography⠀ ⠀
