Flowers From Heaven

Vernon from Flowers From Heaven

1. How did you get started in the flower industry?
My mom used to do the neighbours functions and small events, so I followed in her footsteps.

2. What is your favourite flower and why?
Casablanca lillies. They have the most amazing smell and last for very long.

3. Where do you look for inspiration?
I get my inspiration from looking at new trends and what flowers are available.

4. How did you develop your signature style?
Our signature style was developed as a handtied bunch with pom poms and willow.

5. What attracted you to the flower industry?
Being in germany and I saw what they do with just a bunch of flowers and how beautiful it looked.

6. How has Bloomable changed your business?
Bloomable's online marketplace system has helped to make life more simpler.

7. Can you remember a specific moment when you realized that being a florist is what you actually wanted to do? Or was it a more gradual transition?
Making my first bridal bouquet.

8. Knowing what you know now, would you say becoming a florist was the right decision?
I have learnt you can't please everyone, but when a bride comes to say thank you in person, it's that feeling, that moment, that makes you want to go the extra mile.

9. What is the biggest challenge facing the floral industry?
I used to fear retail shops selling flowers until I realised it's what you as a shop owner does differently, that makes the smaller florists still mean something. Thank you Bloomable team for all the hard work, marketing assistance and exposure that you provide. Vernon and the flowers from heaven team.
