About Rosebud Flowers
Paving a way for a floral future.
Hello and welcome to Rosebud Flowers.
I am Eleanor Dean creative director and owner of Rosebud Flowers.
Flowers are my passion, from a young age I have always loved being outside and surrounded by nature, celebrating the beauty of flowers.
Their colour, form, structure and variety always captured my imagination and creativity.
At school I loved art. I would often take myself off to the latest art exhibition in London or to a National Trust property to visit a garden.
My studies continued down the artistic route where I studied Art and Design at Art collage and then Fine Art at at University. Coming home it was actually my mum who suggested using flowers as my form of medium to create my Art. This idea changed everything!!! I enrolled on a one year course at Merrist wood Agricultural collage to gain my Level 2 in Floristry. This was the best year of my life, I had found my true passion a love of creating with flowers. It was the greatest match and has gone on to be my beloved career for over 15 years.
Vision and Mission
Rosebud flowers was set up seven years ago after the birth of my daughter, Rose. Having worked for 10 years as a Florist I felt I had gained enough experience in the commercial world to confidently set up my own business. It felt time to showcase my own designs and to pass on my joy and passion for flowers.
I have always loved teaching, passing on my knowledge is so rewarding and something I find truly gratifying. This is where the vision for a flower school arose.
My workshops at Christmas have always proven popular and with this growing popularity I have now decided to develop a full program of floristry workshops for 2022.
My mission for Rosebud flowers is to be sustainable, to always try and be mindful of the environment. There fore 2 years ago I decided to make all my flower bouquets plastic free. No cellophane here!! as much as possible I will always make my arrangements using the traditional methods of moss and chicken wire but sometimes I do have to use the modern methods to create the desired vision, there fore I will always use the biodegradable forms of floral form.
This is my pledge for my business and with your continued support i look forward to being a part of its growth in years to come.
