In Focus: Mary - Flower Bird
Posted on February 07 2016
Mary, Founder of Flower Bird is an incredibly special soul who in her work exudes energy, talent, creativity and passion. Seeing Mary's creations made of natural materials often transport me away to a place of magic.
In the section below, Mary - Creative Director and Designer at Flower Bird shares her vision behind her design studio.
Flower Bird is an artisan floral design studio creating floral happiness from a private country garden right here in the city. We offer sustainable floral and foliage designs for custom orders, weddings, events and occasions. Flower Bird floral design studio offers styling, as well as prop hire of recycled and vintage ware.
At Flower Bird our interest is in creation rather than imitation. Our work is informal, relaxed and unique: nature is our inspiration.
We pride ourselves on being a sustainable floral design studio. We don't use floristry foam and we avoid plastics where possible. We endeavour to use fresh blooms grown locally; a practice that the planet prefers. All of our green floral waste is composted back into our Flower Bird studio garden. The worms like it that way and so do we! Our vintage vases and vessels are pre-loved and recycled.
We enjoy consulting with bridal couples who benefit from the broad range of skills in our team, ensuring a comprehensive service. Between us we have qualifications and many years of finely tuned skills in the areas of floristry, design, photography, theatre, fashion, education, event styling and event management. Our experience enriches an organised yet creative approach.
With Bhumi we are honoured to work on window installations of flowers, foliage, natural and recycled materials, as well as collaborative projects and occasions.
Yours in floral happiness,
