When I have planned my personal events, I have tried to complement each event with seasonal flowers, something I find inspiring. For me, I want beautiful flowers, without the heavy environmental footprint. Whilst they can look beautiful, traditional imported cut flowers are an environmental nightmare (intensive farming, CO2 emissions through air transportation, refrigeration and vast amount of waste) and are not something that I want to be associated with nor what I stand for. Instead, I created equally beautiful living displays using edible flowering plants, herbs/ edible leaves. After a few very successful private events where these arrangements were adorned, Lettuce Flowers as a company was born.
