Let me share a little about my world of blooming beauty!
I am Michelle Johnson, a passionate florist with a love for all things floral. I walked away from a 21 year Social Work post to pursue a passion. Even though I have now been in business for just under two years. I feel I've had a lot of experience.
In such a short space of time I have embarked on a colourful entrepreneurial journey and I have enjoyed mastering the art of creating stunning floral arrangements. I was blessed to be the face of Natwest 'Thrive Together' in 2022 and winning a Prestige Award for Event Stylist of The Year, also in 2022. I also have had the pleasure to provide award flowers for the International Women's Cycling Tour, Northampton Uni's Black in the Ivory and MBCC Awards, both 2 years in a row. It is an honour to provide a service that caters to my community and allows me to regard the cultural aspects of their requirements.
I simply love what I do and the way in which flower arranging allows me to relate to others. It is most definitely a method of communication. One that evokes emotions; bringing joy to many occasions. From weddings and birthdays to corporate events and intimate gatherings, even funerals. I am dedicated to crafting bespoke designs that reflect my customers unique style and vision. I do my best always and take great pride in all I create. With an eye for detail and a commitment to quality, I source the freshest flowers and combine them in exquisite arrangements that leave a lasting impression. Whether you desire a romantic bouquet, a whimsical centerpiece, or a show-stopping floral installation, I am here to bring your floral dreams to life. Let's bloom together!

As far back as I can remember, I have always had a passion for jewellery. Watching musicians and people from all walks of life embrace the culture of hip hop jewellery always fascinated me. I loved how it was a form of self-expression and an extension of one's personality. Now, I'm doing what I love by designing and creating jewellery myself. I strive to create unique and personalized pieces that reflect the individuality of each of my clients. With each piece, I pour my heart and soul into it, ensuring it is of the highest quality and truly one-of-a-kind. My goal is to make jewellery that not only looks beautiful but also makes people feel confident and empowered.
