What is your biggest success?

Our biggest success would be to waking up every day and doing what you love, and creating special memories for clients as they walk through this journey in life. This business started in a home garage with just two employees, one of them being myself to establishing our name in the industry and bringing something a little different. It is now over the last year grown and established a division of event equipment that are high end, as well as branching out and having an office space that we have been at for over two years. Our success has been growth, in floristry and gaining more clients and more corporate clients. It's been a remarkable growth and that is pure success for us, as in business you never know how you will be received.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

Our biggest hurdle, let me take it on a personal note is having to access funding to buy equipment and support the business. The assets we have now, have acquired by self-funding and by the gains received from clients that has made us be somewhat restricted to what we could offer and build for our clients and build more assets on hand.
