About Yours Truly Flowers
Yours Truly Flowers was created by Master Florist, Jennifer Allen Thompson
Having left a stressful international management job 18 years ago to start a family, I decided to follow my passion for flowers and retrain to be a florist. My studies took six years to complete whereupon I completed the Master Diploma in Professional Floristry enabling me to become a Master Florist. My love and enjoyment of everything to do with flowers has continued to blossom and grow. I will always strive towards excellence in all aspects of floristry and flower arranging work. I’m proud to be a member of NAFAS – National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies and to be a Fellow Member of the Institute of Professional Florists. I regularly put myself through continuous learning on courses and I regularly attend workshops.
I am proud to be a Master Florist and feel blessed to be an independent florist working from home in my design studio
I love fresh flowers. I have so many favourite flowers and these include Astrantia and Cosmos, Scabiosa and their beautiful architectural seedheads and this includes the intricate Papaver seedheads, Skimmia, & Sedum, Roses and Ranunculus, Nigella and Muscari, Hellebores and Eryngiums. There are so many. I love the textures, the forms and the contrasts you can get when you create designs. I love working through the seasons of flowers and appreciating the scent of the garden Roses and the herbs that can be used alongside them; the strong scent of Eucalyptus and the beautiful colour harmonies inspired by the seasons.
I also like to challenge myself by entering flower competitions and even more challenging, I get enormous pleasure in crafting my own floral stands and containers.
