Bouquet Chic started in 2013 by Liz and Abi (mum and daughter). In 2010 Liz was given flower arranging classes as a Christmas gift from her husband, she enjoyed it so much that she decided to try floristry.
Abi worked at Karen Millen in Bicester village. Abi started as a Sales Assistant in 2005 and worked her way up to be the Assistant Manager at the age of 18 for four years until being promoted to Operations Manager.
Liz and Abi decided to do an induction in floristry to see if it was something they would like to do. They LOVED it – so every Thursday they went to college for three years to fully qualify in floristry, which included all wiring techniques and floristry styles.
Abi then decided this was something she really wanted to do so started looking for a job in a florist. In September 2010 she decided to join Frosts garden centre – all thanks to James Frost. She stayed there for two years and gained so much experience working in a floristry environment – things she couldn’t have learnt at college. Abi then decided if she stayed she would never give it a shot on her own – so decided to leave Frosts and create Bouquet Chic.
Our aim is to create bespoke floristry for weddings, celebrations, parties, corporate events, sympathy and VIP hospitality. We think that it should be bespoke and designed specifically for you and your special event or occasion. We prefer to discuss and plan each and every aspect of your floristry requirements so we can create a floral design that is truly memorable and unique to you.
We work from home in Cranfield Bedfordshire, we are within easy reach of Oxford, Banbury, Beaconsfield, Gerrards Cross and London. If you would like us to travel further please enquire.
