OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH THORN & THISTLE FLOWERS

VerbenaSingle_WorkingFile.png

In the spring of 2016, Verbena Floral Design joined forces with Thorn & Thistle – a brick and mortar neighbourhood flower shop owned and expertly operated by Alexandra Powell and Nicole Ingram. Together, we hit the ground running with wedding season well underway. With the two industry components of retail and events under one umbrella, we’re proud to provide our clients with a full floral experience year-round, as a daily destination or occasion-specific service. Our partnership allows us to maintain and grow relationships with our clients via our brick & mortar location, and connecting with people is at the heart of why we love what we do. Our first few months in partnership were a whirlwind, but many hands make light work and we were never without a lot of laughter.

We love when our clients and customers pop in to our quaint neighbourhood shop and catch up with us. We also love working with each other and feel extremely fortunate to be a part of our local community – one with a long history of family, friends and flowers.
