Silk Flowers to Brighten up Any Space

Hi, I am Sue, I own The Flowersmith and have done so since 2014. I trained as a Florist in England before moving to Wellington with my husband and boys in 2001. I worked as a Florist in Thorndon for 6 years before training in Horticulture at Weltec and running my own gardening business. I then went on to buy The Flowersmith business in 2014 and now I am working with what I love —  flowers, and creating beautiful arrangements.

The Flowersmith is a Wellington-based silk floral and planter rental company providing affordable, quality seasonal silk flower arrangements, custom-made to your requirements giving a great alternative to costly fresh flowers for any corporate or domestic situation. My background in floristry enables me to design lovely arrangements for any situation. I only use the most realistic flowers and usually make the arrangements seasonal, just as they would be made in a florist.

"Sue from The Flowersmith provides a fortnightly flower arrangement in our Reception area for our Corporate Sales office in Lower Hutt.

The silk flower arrangements are of a high quality, very realistic and amazing value. Sue provides a great assortment of styles and is very helpful and willing to adapt the composition of flowers and vases to our fortnightly requirements".

"We look forward to every delivery from The Flowersmith! Their arrangements are varied and beautifully presented. A happy alternative to real flowers, the eye-catching displays look fantastic in our reception area."

"I work in a fairly large reception area and one of the visitors remarked on our flower arrangement, which was looking a bit sad and suggested we try The Flowersmith.

From the moment Sue arrived here she grasped what we liked and disliked and is always able to supply us with seasonal arrangements that are just a little different.

People always remark on the flowers and we happily pass on the Flowersmith's details.

Very happy we changed — thanks Sue!"

"I first met Sue when we were members of a business networking group.  I was very impressed by Sue’s passion and creativity, and her commitment to give her clients great service.  When I was looking to enhance the atmosphere of our office, Sue was the first person I called and we have been happy clients ever since.   For very little cost, Sue’s flowers and planter boxes have given our office a more vibrant and professional look with visitors and staff regularly admiring them.   Sue not only impresses us with her vibrant and striking displays using seasonal flowers, but also with her friendly, efficient and engaging approach — making her monthly visits an office highlight."
