1. Tell us how greenlion design came to be.
Greenlion design started in 2005 as a small space garden and container design company. Over the years greenlion evolved into offering floral designs for weddings and events.
2. What is your floral design style?
Our floral design style is a natural garden inspired style. Flowers and plants have beautiful free-form , rambling shapes in gardens and landscapes, and being inspired by that is the style of arrangements we like to create.
3. Do you have a favorite bloom that you always use in your designs?
Very hard to name favorites as we are inspired and love all plants and flowers, I am partial to sweet peas though. Love their tendrils, long vines, and delicately scented blooms. And Christopher loves Geraniums.
4. What key advice do you always give to clients?
Start with seasonal local blooms, to be sure to compliment the environment and season. Helps for you floral designs to soften and compliment a space rather than feel forced into it.
