Hello my name is Sarah; I began my floral pursuit on a youth training scheme which enabled me to gain the qualifications, skills and experience which was needed for the floristry industry. Over the years I have worked for a high street florist shop based in Hornchurch Essex, and one of London’s top floral designer’s establishments, which held contracts with hotels. With both of these two different backgrounds, it inspired me to learn and observe the vast qualities and skills needed, relating to this wide range of floral knowledge, for all of the different settings, styles, and life celebrations needed.
As I am a very approachable person, understanding the environment, colour scheme and design within a hotel or restaurant area, to enhance the visual space to produce a more appealing atmosphere, I am able to work in partnership with catering event management for venues, listening to a brides ideas and vision for her perfect day, and empathy towards people who have lost someone close to them.
I am helpful with giving out advice on styles, colour schemes, flowers, foliages, size and measurements, and making samples. I know how to compromise on the budget to produce the same effect. I’m very dedicated to working out the ordering process and amount needed, seeking out the best materials to use, working towards deadlines and making sure all items are delivered and set out on time, in a professional and clean manner. I am very enthusiastic about being artistic and producing a new design, or looking at a picture and figuring out how to construct a similar design.
I have now decided to form my own freelance business and to make my dream a reality. As I believe that there is a market for this type of service in and around the East London and Essex area, and I fully understand that it will take me time to build up the cliental basis.
Due to this economic climate it would be the best option to run this on a freelance basis, instead of the running and organisation of a high street premises. As this will result in reduced outgoings, and will reflect on my clients receiving a higher standard of personal customer service and time, resulting in customer satisfaction and receiving more value for money, with the creation of outstanding bespoke elegant floral displays being produced.
