Today it gives me great pleasure to spotlight a modern and stylistic floral designer that until a few years ago was pursuing a completely different career. I first came across her work at Louise and Ben’s wedding earlier this year where I was immediately struck by the beauty and elegance of her creations. I introduce to you, floral artist Erica Elder of Erica Blossoms. Erica’s work is always impeccable, unique and breathtaking. She is friendly and always excited to collaborate with clients to create the flower arrangement of their dreams. Even though Erica only recently become a floral designer, this florist is truly a master of her craft and it is obvious that floral design is her passion and this comes out in her attitude and her art!

Where are you located, and what geographical area(s) do you service?
Whilst I am located in the Blue Mountains NSW, service covers from Mt Victoria to Penrith and anywhere in-between, I am also more than happy to deliver to the Sydney metropolitan area. Wherever a wedding may be… flowers will travel!!
How long have you been in business?
Since April 2009
What drew you to Floral Design as a profession?
For 15 years I worked as a Special Education Teacher, but always knew my dreams and passions were with Floristry. So I undertook re-training for over 2 years, with hopes of owning my own business. That dream became a reality in early 2009 when I created ” Erica Blossoms”. Specialising in Wedding, Funeral and Corporate work. I have built a business around my passions.
What do you feel sets you apart as a Floral Designer?
I personally handpick all the blooms for each wedding, making sure the style of flowers reflects each individual bride and their special day! I only use the best quality and freshest flowers in all of my work, sourced directly from the growers. I am a dedicated florist who is extremely reliable and takes pride in making sure the flowers are absolutely perfect for each wedding day.
What do you love most about your job?
I love the pleasure beautiful flowers gives to each person – their delight, amazement and sheer joy at my flower creations! I enjoy the journey each wedding brings and I love sharing the joy of flowers with others.
