Amy and I recently took a trip to Europe to see the latest trends in European floral design, relax before a busy wedding season and EAT!

Here are some places that you can’t go wrong with.

St. John Bread and Wine

Vancouver has a tremendous diversity of ethnic foods, but they don’t have proper British food like St. John’s.  Head here if you want to experience local British Fare.

Neal’s Yard Dairy

This was definitely a treat.  The cheese was delicious and the staff very helpful.  We bought a serious selection of cheeses, picked up bread from the nearby Le Pain Quotidien, then had a nice lunch outdoors.

Jamie’s Italian

Our pictures don’t give this yummy restaurant justice.  It was our favourite meal of the trip and I highly recommend it.  You can even get half orders of each dish so you can try a larger variety.  I think we ordered everything!

Wheeler’s Restaurant

We came here to dine after watching Anthony Bourdain’s latest TV show “The Layover“.  Wheeler’s is owned by a Macro Pierre White who had become the youngest chef to be awarded three Michelin stars at the time.  Book a table here for more British fare, good portions and be sure to order the Governor ale.

Le Pain Quotidien

When you’re in England, you have to have your fix of a proper British Breakfast. When you’ve played out the English Breakfast, check out Le Pain Quotidien.  It’s convenient, light and reasonably priced.

Floral Design Courses

If you love flowers as much as we do, there are many florists in London that offer one day and half day courses. A great way to spend a day if you’ve been to London before and have already seen the sites and attractions.

Boho-Themed Bouquet For Summer Photoshoot

August 22, 2020

We were recently given the opportunity to design a stunning 'Boho-themed' hand tied bouquet for one of Abbotsford's local photographers, Sandy Sekhon's summer shoot! This bouquet was made to feel simple and light, filled with movement and bright tones. The finished product is beyond gorgeous, and we are so proud...
