We love talking to members about what they do, why they love North Tyneside as a place to do business. We’ve been chatting to Towers Flowers.
Tell us a little more about the business
I am an independent florist specialising in bespoke yet affordable floral arrangements for weddings, Funerals and other special occasions.
I have a passion for all things floral and insist on only using the freshest flowers and foliage and take massive pride in incorporating my own home-grown flowers and plants into the arrangements I produce.
What is your motivation for doing what you do?
I provide a personal service for all my clients whatever the occasion.
Through consultation and getting to know individual tastes, requirements and lifestyle I design and create unique and unusual arrangements and love a new challenge.
What are your plans for the business?
I currently also work part time whilst establishing my business, moving forward the aim is to make Towers’ Flowers my full-time job/passion/life!
I am extremely proud to have recently purchased a van which I’m currently designing the livery to help promote my business on the move.
How has North Tyneside Business Forum helped your business?
The networking events have given me confidence in promoting my business and have helped me understand the organisation that goes into running a small business.
Have you worked in collaboration with any other North Tyneside businesses?
I have recently held two floral arranging events at Dobbies Garden Centre, Gosforth and have also been invited to host a floral demonstration for the woman’s network to be held in October 2020.
One thing that makes your business different from the rest
Personal touch offering truly bespoke service and arrangements and understanding that clients deserve the best product regardless of budget.
I love to try new techniques and experimenting with designs and materials.
I will literally “flower” anything!!
