How long have you been involved in floristry?

- Floristry as a kind of decorative and applied art has been my love for 15 years. Every day is a new challenge, and every creation of a flower arrangement is a new story. Education has no end, you learn something new every day, exchange knowledge and creative ideas with wonderful professionals, as well as clients who entrust their special wishes to your hands.

We believe this is the hardest question for a florist, but we asked Anne to reveal her favorite flower.

– My favorite flower is hydrangea, especially the blue one. It is always a special challenge for me to work with it, although it is not always the first choice of customers, first of all, because of the specific appearance of the flower itself.

What are the wishes of newlyweds, what is trending at the moment and what are your recommendations?

– The choice of flowers that prevails in the creation of a wedding decor and other elements of a wedding celebration is the white rose. Its elegance makes it a safe and unmistakable choice for future newlyweds to choose as the dominant decorative element for their happiest day. Although the white rose is the most common choice when it comes to creating the Biedermeier, I can safely say that lately the choice of brides knows how to be especially bold.

- The influence of world trends, the active monitoring of world fashion as well as the belief in us as professionals in our work results in the creation of various forms of the most desired flower bouquet - the Biedermaier. A combination of several types of flowers, unusual shapes and sizes, as well as bold color combinations and many unusual details.

- Ten years ago, it was unthinkable to use peonies, hydrangeas or chrysanthemums as part of a wedding creation because they were flowers that only decorated the courtyards. Dutch roses were considered the only choice to make the wedding celebration look dignified and luxurious.

One of the trends that is current on social networks is Biedermeier and boho style decorations. Tell us a little more about this trend.

- That's right, in the last few years the boho style dominates the decoration of wedding celebrations. Special enjoyment and freedom in creation is felt when you create a boho Biedermeier, kitenki or complete decor for a wedding celebration.

- The predominance of thirty pastel boho tones gives a special dose of calmness and an incredible combination of fresh flowers with elements of dried flowers and accessories

- In addition to the boho style, the succulent style is particularly interesting, which appears as part of the creation of the details of a wedding celebration. I had the opportunity to create an unusual Biedermeier, which was completely made of several types of succulents, the root of which was completely preserved and carefully arranged. After the wedding celebration, the bride or the girl who receives this type of Biedermeier can enjoy its beauty indefinitely if each root is properly planted and taken care of.

Wedding preparations can be very stressful for both the newlyweds and their families. What are your tips as a professional florist to reduce that stress especially around the decoration part which is a very significant part of the whole celebration?

- The preparations for the wedding celebrations can turn from joy and enjoyment in a very short time to stress and tears. My advice to all future newlyweds before they start planning their happiest day is to concentrate on the most important thing, which is their love that they will have the opportunity to celebrate with their loved ones.

- Leave the other details without hesitation completely to the professionals who will make sure that all segments of a wedding celebration look perfect. Always honestly state what their ideas and wishes are, what is the budget they have and of course timely planning always leaves room for corrections and changes that will not create stress for the newlyweds and their families.

Is the traditional decoration of the bride's home and of course the groom's home still respected and what part of the home should be decorated as tradition dictates?

- In my opinion, the most beautiful and significant part when it comes to this type of decorations is the wedding wreath, which should decorate the front door of the home of the bride and groom.

– A floral wreath that symbolizes the joy, love and happiness that home wants to share with everyone who walks through that door.

Sometimes the decision about the perfect Biedermeier can be difficult. When a bride is indecisive and turns to you for help, what are your tips and suggestions?

– My advice for all future brides, before choosing the type of flowers, choose the shape of the Biedermeier they like and the color they want to dominate, and then with full trust in the florist for their happiest day, they will receive a Biedermeyer more beautiful than their imaginations.

- The experience of a florist will result in a Biedermeier that will contain a combination of flowers that at first glance are an incompatible combination, but with the right arrangement technique can be the right combination. The client's desire is the basic guide and inspiration in the entire creation.
