Hi, I’m Kelli, owner of The Petal Provedore. I am a florist, and I’m the person who lovingly puts together beautiful bouquets and other gorgeous, flowery things from my studio in Hawthorn East. I’m absolutely, hopelessly in love with all things floral- if it has greenery, flowers and a stem, I’m in heaven.
I always, always wanted to be a florist, but I put my dream on hold. After 25 years working in the disability sector, I took a deep breath and went back to school full time to follow my dream. I launched The Petal Provedore in 2016 and now my dream is my livelihood.
I love the creative challenge of creating a beautiful arrangement from a bucket of flowers and foliage. There’s incredible art involved in floristry, and I believe in being guided by the product themselves. Personally, I can’t stand arrangements that are gaudy, mass-produced, over-done and over-priced. My focus is on individuality, affordability and beauty, and I’m confident in the quality, style and value of each and every product I create.
I create arrangements, posies, flower crowns, centrepieces and bouquets, as well as an extensive range of plants and candles all delivered to your home or workplace. All flower arrangements are handcrafted by me, for you, with care and attention to detail. As an Independent Florist I create each and every arrangement, carefully and thoughtfully. I personally select all flowers from local growers and markets, so you can be assured that they are fresh, seasonal and of the highest quality. You won’t find my arrangements in a catalogue; I’m not associated with any relay agencies or order gatherers. All of my work is guided by the seasons and so no two bouquets are ever identical.
The Petal Provedore supplies gorgeous fresh flowers and gifts to homes and offices, for weddings, events and celebrations, as well as just because– flowers are a fabulous act of generosity to the people we love, and of course ourselves.
I deliver from Monday to Friday to Melbourne CBD and suburbs and there’s not much more I love than the smiles on the faces of the lucky recipients of my blooms. I’d love to be the florist to make you smile.
