Our Story

 

Hi, I’m Rachel, founder of The Weekend Florist (TWF).

TWF started out as a hobby for me. I saw floristry as my way of de-stressing from the hectic corporate life I was leading. This hobby turned into a small business alongside my full-time job. No prizes for guessing how I derived the name ‘The Weekend Florist’.

On the weekends, I styled small weddings and corporate events, held floral arrangement workshops and created flower bouquets for various occasions. This ‘weekend business’ slowly flourished with time. In June 2019, I decided to take the leap of faith and made TWF my full-time commitment. The name stayed even though we now operate 6 days a week, because why not? I love that we have a story to tell.

My philosophy has always been to craft unique and beautiful floral arrangements at a reasonable price without compromising quality. This guiding principle has helped us gain the trust of many of our customers.

My team and I believe that flowers are for every occasion and anyone can receive flowers. Yes! Grandmas, grandpas, husbands, wives, sons, daughters, colleagues, friends, girlfriends, boyfriends, anyone! We understand that when you purchase a floral arrangement from us, it isn’t just mindless shopping. You may want to show your love and appreciation for a loved one, or to send comfort and cheer to someone who’s in recovery. It could be ‘just because’ flowers to brighten someone’s day, or to congratulate someone for achieving a milestone. Our goal is to bring forth your message with every floral arrangement that goes through our doors.

As we strive to do our best each day, it is our commitment to ourselves and to our clients that we will continue to push boundaries in our craft to bring you beautiful and exciting floral arrangements.
