It has been my dream to run my own florist store since my first florist job in Currumbin at 14. Floristry and floral designing has always been a passion, since opening my own store my passion has blossomed into a love for small business and the different aspect and challenges along the way. When I'm not thinking, working breathing FT&G I'm with my Partner Tim and friends laughing over lunch with a beer and my blue dog underfoot.
With over 25 yrs experience within Floristry I have gained my cert 4 qualifications and advanced design. My Hubby and I moved from New Castle for the sea change to the beautiful Tweed. I Have been with FT&G since, you'll see me or hear my voice in store and out on the road dropping off beautiful blooms to your door. I love learning new tricks and building on my floristry skills. When I'm not working in store soaking in all Alicia can teach, I'm Jet setting back home to New Castle to spend time with my Mum.
Hi I'm Toni, I graduated floristry in 2011 with my Cert III and have worked for many florists through the years but I now work freelance. I love creating and meeting the customers in store during the busy periods through out the year. I also run the FT&G flower crown parties. My absolute passion is designing cascading lush flower chandeliers and arbours. In my spare time I enjoy breathing in the fresh air on my motorbike.
I have a strong passion for floristry and I'm working on gaining my Certificates for floristry with the help of the FT&G team. I'm not yet qualified but that doesn't hold me back, I am determined to be the best I can be. When I'm not learning from the supportive Flower team I a found at tafe classes or practising this trade at home and to unwind I love challenging my fitness at the gym.
