Tell me a little bit about you
My background is Italian, growing up my Dad was a hard working entrepreneur and inspired me in the person I am today in being a woman business owner. Before I decided to be a florist I was in the food industry with my Mom who was a entrepreneur has well. I found this was not my calling and moved toward the Auto motive factory industry although the money was good I didn't have much stability then asked myself what is always going to be needed? As a child I loved art and crafts even for my Co-up volunteered in a flower shop. At Christmas I would help family and friend by making wreaths and other floral needs. So then I had my answer! I was going back to school to get my floral certificate. My first job placements was Forest of Flowers full time and Michael's crafts store as the assistant florist part time and seasonal help.
What inspired you to start your business?
I am a single mother of three when I was on my mat leave at the time Forest of flowers was going though a change in franchising the company and feared I didn't have a job to go back to. At that point I decided to open my own flower shop and, with the Small business centers help, here I am Today Owner of Graceful Petals flowers and more.
What do you do for couples?
I’m thrilled to be creating bouquets and flower displays that bring together the theme, colours and personality of a couple’s wedding day into their decor and so much more!
Tell me about your favourite part of the job
Seeing the finished product and how happy my clients are. What could be better?
In their words “ I love the shop. Its beautiful you can find anything for any occasion. Prices are really good and I love the service. I really recommend this place. When working with a bride and groom my first advice I give is when working with stem dyed flowers the dye can be transferred easily to clothing and damaging wedding dresses. Some flowers do not do well without a water source or in the floral foam.”
