l am the owner and head of the team. l first opened the shop when l was only 21 and in that time l have turned the shop into the hub of the main street with a friendly, welcoming and passionate take on floristry. l love speaking to all my customers and finding out what flowers, colour and styles they like, it’s a great wee feel in the shop most people find it a fun experience and there’s always lots of laughter. My specialties are hand ties, wedding work and modern arrangement, finally my favorite flowers are hydrangeas, peonies and calla lilies.
I’m Amanda and have worked at Showers of Flowers for 4 years. I enjoy working with our team of florists who are like my second family. Helping our customers, whether it’s a last minute hand tie or a bouquet for a celebration, or wedding flowers for our blushing brides or even funeral flowers to say a last goodbye. My job is so varied and interesting, I love it. My favourite flowers are peony roses, calla lilies and oriental lilies.
l have been with Showers of Flowers for over 10 years. I first came in to give Rowena a hand for the day and never left! l love working in the shop, my job first and foremost is to serve and take the phone calls but in the years working here I have undertaken to do more and more floristry as we are a team and all muck in. My favourite flowers are orchids and calla lilies.
l have been with showers of flowers for around 2 years now, but l have been in floristry since l left school and worked my way up from a junior to a confident florist. l am still learning every day and Rowena is giving me the chance to do more experienced jobs such as bridal work and funeral work and l am loving the chance as it seem to come natural. My specialities are hand ties, baskets corsages and buttonholes and my favourite flowers are pink roses, hydrangeas and gerbera.
I am Derek, the driver for Showers of flowers although some may know me as Martha’s husband. I am quick and prompt with my deliveries but still always up for a gab with the customers.
I’m Dayna, the baby of the shop and Rowena’s niece. I came to the shop as a Saturday girl and, like Martha, never left. I love working in the shop and the friendly environment I’m in along with the community atmosphere in the east end
