I entered the Benfleet in Bloom competition in 2010 & 2011gaining a ‘Silver Award for Recognition’ on both occasions. Along with this recognition and my arrangement to dress the local funeral directors showroom and window I have enhanced the Petite Fleur profile within the local area, which has lead to more corporate work to include a local builders merchants, estate agents and Town Council office displays.
This has also led to several local press articles and more excitingly a TV appearance; taking an active part in Channel 4 “60 Minute Makeover” to be screened March 2012.
I endeavour to keep standards and quality high in all aspects of work and customer service using the best quality blooms, which is sourced from both local growers and Dutch markets.
I am very pleased with progress made and any apprehension I had initially seems now a long way off. By popular demand from the local community, my goal and next project for year three is to provide ‘fun with flowers’ arrangement lessons.
With my new team of three part time local ladies we look forward to further and future growth in all business ventures within my local area. “Bring it on!”
