With a passion
I’d like to introduce you to a very special florist … Antonio, or Tony to his friends is one of those guys that just loves his work with a passion. Not just any old florist, Tony holds qualifications in Hotel Management, but that was just for mum and dad, then choosing to study Interior Design with Floral from the University of Fashion Institute of Technology in America working for a chain of Florists in New York, in total almost 8 years and really, this guy is on another level !
The family were from Famagusta, and Tony told me when he was about 7 he used to spend time with his Pappou who would cut flowers for him to play shop keeper and he would arrange all the different colours and greens … he said, I suppose that’s when I got hooked on the many variations, colours and distinctive aromas!
Weddings are where Tony excels, everything from just a Bridal Bouquet to Corsages, Button Holes, something for the Bridesmaids, displays for the head table, hanging flowers and artistic floral arrangements, and Tony is more than happy to help whatever your budget, tbh, all I can say is; give him a few days notice and you’re gonna love him ! … oh and check out more wedding photos on his Facebook Page …
Say it with Flowers
Whatever the occasion Tony creates really cool Bouquets for religious occasions, Christmas, Easter, Name Days, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Valentines, Mother’s Day, maybe a new baby, just a simple sorry for Funerals, Wreaths, Arrangements … or just because!
Flowers in Boxes
I love this idea and Tony loves creating them … Flowers in Boxes, lots of different shapes and sizes, all with a flower arrangement and a little draw at the bottom so that you can hide a few chocolates, macaroons, maybe an engagement ring or he’ll even hide a teddy bear in a balloon, brilliant !
Antonio keeps in touch with fashion and new ideas by visiting exhibitions at least 4 times a year, working closely with many local shops, decorating shop window displays with such a creative passion and at several hotels, working closely with Capo Bay Hotel, Golden Coast and Sunrise Hotel Group, so if you want it to attract attention, give him a call !
Getting to Know you
I’ve known Tony since he opened 1993, and a simple call these days and I know he will create exactly what I was looking for … Delivery in the surrounding area is all part of the excellent service and Tony is the only florist in the area who is a member of Direct 2 Florist (UK) so you can send flowers internationally via his shop !
