For the wild at heart with an appreciation for refreshing design and locally sourced blooms, we create artisanal florals in a way that celebrates the eclectic diversity of our clients, reflecting the love around them on their happiest of days.
We believe in being bold.
We believe in the beauty of vibrancy.
We believe flowers should be fun.
With our roots sewn deeply into the love of botanicals and earthy textrues, it is the hope that the designs created at the hands of Lush Florals come to life organically, artfully and even unexpectedly.
|Melanie Ripa Lead Designer + Founder|
She paints pictures in the air with her hands when she talks about flowers.
The journey that led Melanie down the path to owning and operating her own floral studio was a fateful fork in the road two decades in the making: a choice between floral design or arboriculture as an elective in her Horticulture program at Niagara College, Melanie’s leap of faith has revealed itself to be one of the wisest and bravest decisions she’s ever made. With success comes grit, focus, and, a great deal of determination and Melanie is willing to get dirty and work hard to service her clients. She strives to share the real-life, authentic, behind the scenes work of her creative life. Find Melanie in her studio space and she’ll surely have her golden mane in a giant bun, her latest album obsession over the speakers, her cat’s at her feet and her head, heart, and hands, immersed in blooms. She lives firm in the belief that doing one thing impeccably is better than doing many things, just okay.
