Our owner and principle designer, Abby

I’ve dreamed of being a florist for a long time and I’m so grateful to all the unwavering support people that stand behind me. My faith and family are the most important  things in my life and I wanted to do something that honoured my God given creativity and love for spending time with my family and strengthen the community. (what better way to get free help!). My husband and I farm together in Falun Alberta and have one son, Otto. I grew up in Eckville, where my dad has his greenhouse for wholesale bedding flowers. I studied business at Nait, dabbled in the mortgage and life insurance industries, and worked as a bank teller at the credit union in Wetaskiwin. I have a passion for flowers and I’m so honoured when I get to create an arrangement for someone. I truly believe flowers are an expression of someone and are a beautiful gift of love. I love pink, working on the family farm, dancing, and hot coffee in the morning. I’m so happy you’re here and I can’t wait to work with you.
