Hello! I'm Helen, a floral designer and educator, passionate about inspiring more creativity in this world.
Creating bold, artistic and whimsical floral magic for weddings and events is what I do best, whilst sharing my journey and craft along the way!
I've had a life-long creative addiction since childhood. When I was a kid, I'd religiously watch Art Attack on TV twice-daily, followed by multiple craft projects of my own inspired by the show.
After nearly heading down the path to study fashion design, I ended up studying business and foreign languages. Spending a year in Paris in 2009 for a study exchange reignited my artistic passions and entrepreneurial spirit.
Following university, I began working at a software company during the day, and blogging / crafting at night, whilst also fostering a balcony garden on weekends. My appreciation for flowers grew as I nurtured seeds into beautiful specimens, like tulips and chincherinchees. I started teaching myself how to make terrariums and arrange flowers. And fell in love with it all.
What started as a hobby in late 2014 slowly grew, with the support of friends and family, and I soon began designing and creating bouquets and floral arrangements for weddings around Sydney.
When I'm not floral-ing it up, I enjoy practising yoga, watching Australian football, and feasting on cinnamon donuts.
My floral designs
I'm known for my bold, artistic and whimsical floral designs. My inspiration comes from my love for fine art (particularly the Impressionists) and wanderlust.
Passionate about supporting the local growers at the Sydney flower markets, I love making use of fresh, seasonal flowers as much as I can in my work.
The floral design services I offer include: wedding bouquets, ceremony and reception floral decor, events floral decor, workshops, gift terrariums and special bouquets made to order.
I truly believe that every single person in the world can be creative, and it represents itself in so many different forms. Whether it be making something by hand, or having a vision and collaborating on it with other people to turn that into a reality.
Through Lime Tree Bower, my mission is to cultivate and inspire creativity amongst flower lovers all over the world, through the magic of floral design.
Grow the world's creativity.
