We believe in our team that surrounds us, we encourage, we inspire and we like to keep the creativity alive. Each of our floral designers have full qualifications in floral design though of course are unique in each strength and by working alongside one another we all learn, teach and motivate each another to keep creating.
Melissa Hart - Floral Director
Co-Owner at Blooms on Darby Mel is by far the most experienced in floral design, having her hands and heart in the game for over twenty five years. After starting her florist apprenticeship in Sydney she has since owned multiple florist studios throughout regional NSW. With an eye for seeing the beauty in the strange of the flora and fauna world, give her a twisted stick and bucket of blooms and watch her create a botanical masterpiece.
Fave Blooms: Hydrangea, Peonies, Driftwood - is that a flower?
Why Floristry: To create
Flowery Vibes: one off floral creations, unusual, texture
Natalie Hart - Floral Director
The other Co-Owner at Blooms on Darby Natalie is all about the rambling, overflowing romance inspired by flowers. Growing up in her mothers (Melissa's) flower shops you would find her hiding small invitations amongst the flowers to a fairy ball. With over six years in event management and ten plus years in the floral world (by choice and not as a daughter!) you can be sure you will get a wildly romantic design out of her.
