Lace & Birch is an inclusive multi-award winning wedding and special event florist. Founded in 2019, servicing Southern Ontario areas like Hamilton, Burlington, Niagara, Stoney Creek, Toronto, and beyond. In January 2020, we opened a Flower Shop in the sweet community of Carlisle! Offering fresh flower bouquets and arrangements, a variety of house plants and stylish pots, dried flowers, and a curated collection of local products supporting over 15 small businesses! Modern, natural, and unique - just like our designs.
In late August 2018, I quit my full time wedding + events job and decided to give this business 100% of my attention and effort. I started with wedding planning and rentals, (even had a studio for a short time), but after almost 7 years as a planner; I decided to make the creative shift and leap of faith to follow my true passion of florals and plants. With only 1 year of full time flower experience under my belt, I purchased my flower shop at the end of 2019, and opened late January 2020.
Since opening, my flower shop has won multiple awards, including Best Flower Shop in Hamilton 4 years in a row (Top Choice awards is recognized across North America), and most recently for Top Hamilton Flower Shop (by Canadian Choice Awards). It has been such an incredible journey, and one I wouldn't change! I am a huge supporter of other entrepreneurs and small businesses, and am proud to feature so many amazing Ontario made products at the flower shop.
I have spent a lot of time self teaching and practicing floral skills, investing in education and bettering my skills (both florals and business), and even grow a small cutting garden to incorporate into summer + fall designs and weddings (as well as picking up from + supporting our local flower and plant growers!) I have 2 green thumbs, and could chat plants for days; this is also what drove for the large mix of plants to be included at the flower shop.
On my free time, I love to be outdoors in nature, getting my hands dirty in the garden, travelling with my husband or adventuring with our two pups, and tending to my vast plant collection.
