Flower Stories by Naoko
Hi I'm Naoko, the owner and floral designer of Flower Stories by Naoko. I'm from Japan where all the pretty cherry blossoms are! I started my career in 2014 after completing a Certificate III of floristry at Pearsons School of Floristry in Sydney. When I got married in 2008, I was totally amazed by the work that my florist had done for me and soon my passion to be a florist began.
I'm enthusiastic and love my job. I enjoy creating bouquets and floral arrangements using a variety of beautiful blooms that nature can offer. My style is so called 'natural elegant'. I enjoy using many colors and textures to create a nature inspired style arrangementment like one of the top floral designers in Japan, Flower Noritake. I also like romantic French style floral arrangements. Whenever I have a chance, I try to take lessons from experienced floral designers and Ikebana masters to improve my skills and techniques.
I believe that flowers can bring us joy and happiness as well as heal our souls. It's my passion to bring them together and create magic for any special occasions including weddings, events and corporate gatherings.
Hope you enjoy my work!
