The Little Shed Flower Company
The Little Shed Flower Company was born from love in 2015. Literally, out of a small shed constructed by one of my closest friends, in my very own backyard. With rough sawn local lumber for walls, reclaimed windows and recycled electrical wire, it's second hand cobblestone path was a pleasant walk from the squeaky back door of my home. It was here that I designed beautiful fresh florals, hosted my first open house, and chatted with friends over wine while I worked. The Little Shed has since graduated into a beautiful old church on a quaint country road in Varna, ON. Here, we house our carefully curated event and styling inventory, converse with our clients while designing the custom floral creations of their dreams. We create unique recipes, custom seasonal workshops and wash glassware of course.
Starting out in the flower and design industry at the age of just fourteen, I began my mentorship under an esteemed florist in Stratford, ON. I started washing flower buckets, conditioning fresh flowers and wrapping bouquets. I learned about colour, texture, large scale floral design and what excellent customer service was made of. While attending the University of Western Ontario, I continued my love for flowers and event design recreationally, designing fresh flowers for friends and family. After pursuing a career as a full time Registered Nurse, I longed to submerse myself back into the world of event and floral design, and so I began working for a local designer with incredible talent and vision. It was blatantly apparent that this was my real passion in life, and so I decided to make the leap. I gently opened The Little Shed Flower Company in 2015, a full service, eco-conscious custom floral and event design company, using locally sourced products of the highest quality.
