When we pick up a bouquet of flowers for a loved one (or ourselves!), we rarely consider the time, effort and deep thought that has gone into creating that arrangement. We recently spoke to Trish Fairman, owner and operator of Village Emporium Flowers and were astonished at her level of knowledge and care for her craft. We’ll never look at a bouquet in the same way again!
After spending 27 years in a senior executive role in the corporate sector, Trish made the jump in 2020 to retire and make her dream of opening a florist come true. “Whilst living in the USA, I pursued a number of professional development courses as well as creative arts courses in fabric, floral art and design” she says. “I’m passionate about flowers in any form and the pleasure and comfort that they can bring in times of celebration and sadness.”
