Client Profile - Carley Jones - 'Carley Jones Floral Design'
How did you get into the flower trade?
I have always had a passion for flowers and design. I started in the flower trade at the age of fifteen, working at ‘Margarita Florists’ after school. From there I worked at several Dunedin florists, eventually opening my own store, ‘Joseph Jones’ in 2000.
How long have you been going as Carley Jones at St Clair?
My new store, ‘Carley Jones Floral Design’, was opened November 2010, and specialises in contemporary flower arrangements for every occasion, including corporate functions and weddings.
What's the best thing about your job?
The best thing is working with flowers, it is so great to be able to do something I love, I’m really lucky. I really enjoy creating beautiful floral pieces.
What are the main services you provide?
We provide a wide range of services, catering for all your everyday needs, such as birthday and thank you bouquets, to your special occasions and corporate requirements. Flowers are making a big comeback, and are appropriate in many situations; we pride ourselves on our fresh modern designs, which “stand out from the crowd”. I have been doing weddings for a long time, and specialise in ‘Modern vintage’ designs, featuring classic elegant blooms, lace, and pearls, arranged in a clean contemporary style.
What does the future hold for ‘Carley Jones Floral Design’?
At the moment we are concentrating on getting the ‘Carley Jones Floral Design’ name out there. We would love people to come down and visit our beautiful new store, whether for fresh cut flowers, bouquets, gift baskets, or to discuss your wedding or corporate requirements.
