Earth Day 2013

Today is Earth Day. It takes place every April 22 and is the largest environmental event celebrated worldwide. The goal of this day is to promote awareness and to encourage people to reduce their impact on the environment. In my opinion, every day should be Earth Day!

You might ask: what does this have to do with flowers? Well, there are ways you can reduce the environmental impact of your next event. Choosing seasonal and/or locally grown flowers could lower your overall cost. But opting for blooms that were produced in Canada will not only encourage local growers, it will also reduce your carbon footprint.

Let’s all do our part to protect the environment. Think about what you buy and what you use over the coming months. If everyone made an effort to reduce or reuse more, it would have such a great impact globally. Happy Earth Day everyone!

Here comes my blog!

I have been thinking about creating this blog and website for quite some time. So here I am!

Where does Fleurs Design come from? I have always loved gardening and design. Three years ago, I decided to take an intensive florist course and since then, I have been creating floral arrangements for weddings, special occasions and corporate events. There is nothing more satisfying than to see the joy and delight in my clients’ eyes when I show them what I have designed for them. It is such a rush!

Follow me as I write this blog. I will share with you details of events I am working on, what the trends are in the floral design world, and I will also introduce you to different flowers. I like flowers… or rather, I love them! Let me share my passion with you.

Welcome to my blog!
