Hope everyone is having a lovely day with family and friends.
I've got a news for you, Some of you may have already found out if you have visited the webpage.
I'm taking a break from wedding flowers for a while.
For those that have book me for their wedding in 2012 - thank you :)
I will of course be doing your flowers; and for those who are considering me, please don't hesitate to contact me. It just means that I'm not handing out info to new enquiries.
This idea came as I became a little more aware of the environmental impact of flower industry.
I do what I can do to help the environment;
-Using 100% recycled paper and not printing when I don't need to
-Buying local flowers as much as possible
-Recycling cardboard, paper and plastic as much as possible
-Composting green waste from weddings
-Driving prius (to reduce carbon emission)
But that's about it I can do - I can't do anything about the environmental impact of growing and transporting of flowers and greenery.
So I came up with an idea of growing my own flowers and greenery to create a "pick and make your own bouquet/arrangement" destination in Melbourne.
It's going to take a lot of planning/investing/planting and growing, but if this is going to make me more confident and happy in what I do, I'm determined to do this.
I will keep my email address, blog & the facebook page just to give you some updates in what I'm doing; and I'd definitely let you know through here when I'm ready to open up the "community flower garden"! :)
In the meanwhile, I'll be one of the organisers of a new NPO in parmaculture and sustainability.
Also, when my friend opens up a cafe mid 2012 I'll be selling flowers there too - which I will also let you know when it happens.
Thank you so much for your support in the last 3 years, and hopefully, I'll come back bigger and better in a couple of years! :)
