    Busy Holidays in a Retail Flower Shop with Floralista

    Floralista is a brand that is born out of Alice’s lifetime love of botanicals. Alice had tactile, firsthand experience with verdure through her family, who were professional horticulturalists, while walking through her parents’ greenhouses as a toddler. Alice has a keen eye for design, demonstrated by her strong personal aesthetic. Therefore, it was only natural for Alice to live out her passions through the art of curating and arranging flowers. Alice employs design principles such as colour, texture, and composition to reflect her environment and individual style. She has matured into a strong business woman, an artist, and a compassionate caretaker of plants. Follow her incredible work on Instagram at @floralista.

F-LOW-ER G-IR-L ,

Talks over guests with personal anecdotes too much

The one podcast I listened to, Kelly spoke over the guest and sidelined off subject with personal comments about her baby, husband, household. In the end, wasn’t able to glean much because Kelly focused so much more on herself rather than the guest. Many better flower podcast hosts out there that are able to listen and draw out information from their guests for the benefit of the audience.

Educational and inspiring!

If it weren’t for Team Flower, my floral business would never be where it is today. Through their online courses and flower community and now this podcast, I’ve gained invaluable tips and tricks over the past three years that I’m forever grateful for. Thank you, Team Flower, for showing me how I can love the world and each of my clients through flowers!

THANK YOU!

I just want to say thank you Team Flower and especially Kelly. This last podcast was beautiful and comforting. I am feeling the weight of what is happening to our flower friends and people like Kelly have the perfect ways to communicate love and a sense of peace. The overall message of Team Flower is always beautiful and I am thankful you are here for us all. Keep going, you’re doing a great job Kelly😊💕
