sustainability

dearheart_rr2016-43

We have spent time finding the balance between delivering the product our clients want and responsible stewardship of our natural resources. We have incorporated sustainability into our business by:

  • Sourcing flowers and foliage from local farms
  • Growing of our own interesting flowers and foliage, which we water from our borehole
  • Composting cutoffs and greens
  • Recycling and reusing plastics and packaging
  • Training staff to make candles from recycled wax

 

You can join our sustainability initiative by allowing us to deliver any flowers, not taken home from your wedding, to local hospitals and old age homes and spread the joy for a little longer.

TESTIMONIALS

My fiancée, Chris, and I were thrilled to work with Coral for our wedding. They are so incredibly talented and we simply cannot speak highly enough of their great work. From our first meeting, I knew that Coral was not just your average florist. She took the time to get to know us and to understand the look and feel that we were going for (which at that point was a handful of random style ideas and a color palette). When my fiancée and I arrived at the mock up, we were floored by how beautifully and creatively she interpreted and executed our vision. We thought she couldn’t possibly out do the mock-up, then the day of the wedding arrived and, WOW she really, REALLY exceeded our expectations. The flowers were exquisite. All of the décor was stunning, creative and unique, with no small detail overlooked. A month on, we are still receiving compliments

Breathtaking!!! Thank you so much Coral. I had an idea, you took that idea and went beyond what we could have imagined. True artist. The attention to details was amazing and the most beautiful array of flowers. And my bouquet, wow, again amazing! Thank you!

Coral did magical flowers for me at my home recently. She is so beautifully creative it is astounding! Her stock is also fantastic - never seen such amazing Ranunculas in my life. Thank you Coral for your professionalism and your calming relaxed nature - I loved all the bouquets.

The first time I met Coral was on our wedding day, when she walked in, beaming, with the most beautiful bouquet I have ever seen! We planned our wedding from overseas, and all of our correspondence with Coral was over email. From the start, her emails were both warm and professional, she created a Pinterest board for me based on my emails and ideas, she was patient with my back and forth (and our indecision!), worked her quotes and ideas around our budget and in the end delivered something that exceeded all of my expectations. The attention to detail in even the button holes, was beautiful. I cannot recommend her enough -not only for the incredible product they deliver but for what a pleasure they are to work with! Thank you both so much! Tarryn

The most caring florist you will ever meet. Coral is fantastic and takes the time to understand her clients in order to bring their ideas to life. I was completely blown away when I got to my wedding and saw what magic they had created. It was clear to see the love that went into every detail. It looked like a fairy tale. Thank you so so much!!!

I absolutely love working with Coral - she simply "gets it" Every brief I have given her is always executed with passion, style and attention to detail. My clients are always so incredibly happy when they see her finishing touches and how her floral designs bring our styling to life!
