About Francesca’s Flowers

Hello hello

Welcome! So nice to have you drop by. Hi I’m Francesca and this is our little Flower Studio. For many years we had a lovely little retail shop and Tea room in Paddington. As the world changed so did we. I met my gorgeous Husband Steve (and step daughter) and we had a little human, beautiful Jasper and now we run a homebased studio.  We still deliver beautiful fresh flowers and gift baskets for you, we host workshops and we run our floral subscription Flower Club on the first Friday of the Month. Our Flower Club is a fabulous community of flower friends. We deliver fresh flowers to your door with vase, materials, live video and everything you need to create your own seasonal floral arrangement.

Seeing as we are getting to know each other I thought I’d share a bit about me. It may be a little controversial but those who know me may not be surprised…. I believe in MAGIC.

I want to share this magic with you.  I have a beautiful brother who sadly suffers with mental illness. This rocked my world when he first become unwell. With the darkness that comes with mental illness I knew I needed to create a world filled with more light and joy.

Have you ever had that feeling that you needed to DO something?  Not something little but something BIG. Something special. Something bold and brave and so vastly different from what you find yourself doing day to day. I had that feeling. About 10 years ago I sat in an office and knew I needed something else.

I needed to create, 
I needed beauty,
I needed to connect,
I needed joy  
I needed MAGIC
I started searching, I invited magic in….

I think the first step of finding magic is simple asking for it to appear. (And then being a bit patient) 

I asked myself what I truly wanted. It was a bit scary to do this as where I was at the time was a long way away from what I wanted. And then I wrote it down. (There was some big things in this list! Including a Husband, a business and a baby!) In 2008 in a fluro lite office, while I was working for Rio Tinto I was given a note book and I started writing down what I truly wanted. 

I wanted the share the first line with you… 

“I want to build a business where learning is fun, where we want to work and where there is joy”. 

Sounds simple hey!

Well what an adventure that lead to. The thing about magic is it is sneaky. It sometimes really gives you what you want and then you have to play with it when it shows up. So this is what I do, every day I learn, I play with the magic and I create joy. Flowers hold special magic. They bring comfort, joy and love. Flowers are used to celebrate and commiserate and everything in between.

I want to share the magic of flowers with you. 

I know many of you have felt it, when you stepped into our space, received flowers, when you’ve spent a few hours at a workshop or joined our Flower Club at home, I want this JOY to spread further.

In addition to just a flower shop I started a club, Francesca’s Flower Club (I was once a girl guide and it seemed like a great place to start). Would you like to join the club? Don’t worry it’s a free Facebook Group, it’s fun, it requires no effort, it’s just a place for us to hang and connect with each other. You can share what you have been growing in your garden, flower arrangements you have made, you’ll see Floral arraging “how to” videos. 

This is the link… 

It’s just a little Facebook group for us to share. I want to share with you the joy of flowers. 

Did you know studies have shown Flowers are a natural mood enhancer. (I knew this without a study) When given as a gift, they put a smile on the face of the receiver.  The simple act of receiving such a gift can increase positive thinking for several days following the initial acceptance of this gift. To me this is MAGIC! 

I see YOU. When you come to a workshop or join our Flower Club, I see you relax, you breathe a little deeper, you stop and enjoy the beauty. It’s joy, it’s MAGIC! 

Thank you, if you are still reading, I really just wanted to say hello, make you feel welcome and to invite you to join our Floral Subscription Flower Club, book a workshop, order flowers and play with MAGIC.
