roses and tulips at Flowers Vasette

I’ve always loved strolling past or into a fabulous flower shop, what passionate flower lover doesn’t!

Long before I started creating my miniature flower couture I would take photos of flower shops that caught my eye on holidays, Flowers Vasette was one and I have a photo taken of their storefront from about twenty years ago.

So it’s not surprising that in the fledgling beginnings of petal & pins I declared I would love to have my cards stocked at this iconic Melbourne florist and we were excited in March this year when that wish came true!

Recently in Melbourne for Life InStyle we were staying in Fitzroy just down the road from Flowers Vasette so we made a visit to their beautiful shop.

I took these pictures of the wonderful abundance of flowers and our Garden Fairy’s Wardrobe cards on display and bought a bunch of pink runuculus – often referred to as the rose of spring – to help make our apartment feel like home when we got back from long and busy trade fair days.

The Florist & The Fairy

Back in May when I was doing the market I was approached by Janita – a florist  who was interested in stocking my cards in her shop at Bellerive.

I have had a sweet spot for flower shops ever since I met my friend who worked in and then owned one of her own. They always catch my eye wherever I am and I have photos of florist windows and displays interspersed throughout typical holiday snaps from Melbourne, Paris and beyond.

It will come as no surprise my Garden Fairy’s Wardrobe is at home in one and recently I dropped in some more stock and took some photos… so come and have a peek inside Janita Preshaw’s Beautiful Flowers Gifts and Garden.
