I don't just love flowers, I live them.

I decided to become a florist when I was 16 (do I dare tell you, back in 1993), I did work experience in year 9 at Julie Ann's Florist in Mentone. Thelma and Kylie inspired me.

Finding and apprenticeship was really difficult so I completed VCE while I was looking.

When I was 18 I was lucky enough to find Pixie Dell Florist in East Bentleigh that needed someone and supported training with Box Hill institute. Back then the trade certificate took 3 years to complete.

In this time the opportunities were amazing. Working at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show in conjunction with Interflora and Box Hill Institute.

The highlight of my career was being 'Senior Florist' at Bloomsbury Flowers in Camberwell.

Since then, 16 years later, three children, a divorce and being Assistant Director for a performance car parts business (I know, so not my thing). I have an abundance of business knowledge to apply to offering you the best service.

Now I'm back doing what I love. Playing with flowers every day.

Hi Cassy, I am getting married in Parkdale on Sat Jan 5th and I’d love it if you could do all my flowers. Its going to be an intimate, stylish, backyard wedding at my sister’s place. It will be an evening wedding, about 30 guests. Ceremony will be around 5pm. My fiancé and I live in the USA and we’ll be arriving in Melbs on Dec 25th. Please let me know if you are available for this day and if you have any packages I can view and the pricing. Thank you, Debbie.

Hi Cassy
My sister, niece, Mum and I have a small Dance School in Charman road. Established 44 years ago in Bayside.
We normally have little posies and bunches of flowers made up for our students and teachers by the florist in lower Dandenong road Mordialloc for our end of year concert. ( This year Saturday 1st December)
We would like to use local though and saw everyone on the Bayside Hub recommending you.
We have been paying $4.00 per posy and $10.00 for a Singapore orchid bunch. Are you able to do something like this for us please ? Hoping to hear back soon
Thankyou
Kind Regards
Vikki Wells
