our story

We are not traditional florists. We are artisans, designers and educators who are inspired by the outdoors, natural materials, elements and the textures that shift with the seasons.

We live and design in the moment and that is seen in our trend-setting florals, stand-alone wedding styling, curated gifts, plants & creative workshops.

Our Owner and Creative director, Darlene Rupke, is obsessed about all things that grow. At the age of five, she cut all of the tulips in the garden and presented her Mom with a bouquet (she may have destroyed the garden, but she found her calling). She has since graduated from Humber Floral Design and trained in the Netherlands and New York.   

In the past 25 years, Darlene’s designs have been featured in industry magazines, nationwide competitions and found their way into the adoring gazes of prominent political figures and celebrities.   

Jillian Ledlie is just as passionate and that’s how she became our lead Designer and Production Manager. She has mentored under southern Ontario’s top designers and was educated in New York’s finest floral schools. Her creativity is only trumped by her attention to detail.
