About Hardcore Florist

Hardcore Florist is a unique unicorn of a business that strives to take a different approach to floristry. I am a one woman show and here is my manifesto: I believe in the reduce, reuse, recycle principle. I reject traditional flower shop nonsense such as using toxic chemicals to make things look pretty. I don’t soak stems in a nasty stem preservative nor use flower foam; the latter contains carcinogens such as formaldehyde, carbon black and non biodegradable plastics. I buy as locally as I can. I use my brain to think of new and exciting ideas instead of relying on the tired boring trends that the industry pushes out. Lastly, I believe in kicking ass and doing what I love. I always feel honored and privileged to create arrangements for one of the best days of a couple’s lives. To be a part of a love story that is unstoppable and impalpable is magical. It puts a lump in my throat and punches me in the feels, every d.a.m.n. time. I heart it all so much.
