Once upon a time
In the sepia-soaked 70s, a little girl loved spending her time in the vegetable and flower garden with her mother; whilst her little brother cooked up creative plans.
A passion for flower and colour led the little girl to study Garden Design at the Chelsea Physic Garden and then Floristry after that.
Meanwhile, a passion for marketing led the little brother to business school and to travelling the world being inspired by great brands.
Growing up in a garden full of unusual flowers, their mother encouraged them to pick, experiment and express their creativity.
They were free to explore their own styles, dream up crazy creations and grow a deep understanding and love for all thing’s food and floral.
From designing small London gardens to hundreds of weddings and being resident florist at the Principality Stadium – stunning, unusual, wonderful flower combinations is what Lisa, the heart of FlowerBe’s creativity does best.
But don’t take our word for it – look at some of the events she has designed for…
The FlowerBe Recipe
So, what happens when you mix Lisa’s flower power with Sean’s 20+ years of marketing and brand experience around the world…
A year and a half of start-up testing, designing, building, listening, talking and only sometimes arguing (as only brothers and sisters can), to create a recipe for the perfect flower service – FlowerBe – the first flower brand to put you and your space at the centre of the story.
OUR MISSION FOR FLOWERBE
There are literally thousands of varieties of flowers out there but sadly you’re not likely to see them on the high street. There are fewer florists, hardly any markets, and supermarkets dominate the industry with mass-produced, low-priced, machine-arranged flowers.
The flowers all look the same, in every store. You get home, ‘plonk’ them in a vase and that’s it.
We think there should be more to the experience of bringing flowers into your home: allowing you to express yourself; styling your home with the seasons.
We want you to rediscover the joy, art and creativity of flowers, the whole essence of taking time and experiencing what it is like to create something beautiful, something unique and something to be proud of.
FlowerBe is the idea of bringing together seasonal flowers and inspirational interiors, learning about flowers and artful arranging. As much as there is not one type of rose or dahlia, one shade of blue or one design of chair, there is no single way of enjoying and expressing flowers in your own home.
That’s why we don’t do arrangements. We give you the tools in a box – loose and un-arranged – with some great ideas and inspiration, but essentially, it’s your home, your style, your experience.
We do the designing, nature does the blooming, but you get to do the best bit.
Enjoy! Sean and Li
