With a climate such as the one of Bermuda, it is easy to grow the best flowers, especially the tropical ones.But it doesn’t necessarily mean that all florists will be the same and will all have fresh flowers, or at least the best.
Given all the weddings organised and celebrated in the island by visitors looking for the most romantic location as well as all the events organised here, there are plenty of florists in Bermuda.
There is however one which surpasses every other florist in Bermuda for the last three years. Flowers By GiMi, the florist of Front Street, in Hamilton, has once again been voted the best in the category fresh flowers at The Bermudian’s Best of Bermuda Awards in 2011 after its success at the 2010 and 2009 editions.
Flowers By GiMi is much more than your usual local florist, it is a premium floral design and customised gift boutique. The company has not only a main store on Front Street, it also has a Design Studio in Pembroke, as well as a retail shop at Miles Market, in Pembroke too. It has become the place of choice of many for weddings and receptions.
The reputation of Flowers By GiMi for arranging beautiful as well as innovative bouquets is only matched by the quality and the freshness of their flowers which are known for lasting at least a week and often many more days. Furthermore, the philosophy at Flowers By GiMi is to not only anticipate their customers’ expectations but also to surpass them.
The company can rely on the impressive experience of one of the founders, Michelle Geary, the two others being Bermudian recording artist Gita Blakeney Saltus and her husband Gary Saltus. Michelle Geary worked in England for the country’s finest department store Harrod’s, celebrity florist Paula Pryke Flowers, as well as a floral designer for the Royal Family. After she sold her successful own flower company in the UK, she came to Bermuda and created Flowers By GiMi.
The objective of the company is to support the tourism and the corporate industries of Bermuda by providing them with innovative and splendid floral creations for different local events and convention groups.
The best shop for fresh flowers is also a specialist of wedding flowers, creating exquisite arrangements in the wedding signature colour or the wedding theme. The people at Flowers. By GiMi are great at coming up with new ideas to offer you unique floral arrangements for the ceremony and the reception, with customised bouquets, breathtaking centrepieces and napkin treatments of which only they know the secret.
For example, Flowers By GiMi can design an ocean hue for the perfect Bermuda wedding by using lavender, lilac and blues, or throwing in more colours with fushia, pink and magenta combined with the richer purple of the eggplant that will be contrasted with line and apple green. These are only a couple of suggestions and they have many more to match any theme and atmosphere.
Flowers can be used for many events and the strength of Flowers By GiMi is to be able to stay innovative whatever the occasion is, from birthday party to gala dinner, awards ceremony or even a company event. The floral arrangements are what makes an event more memorable than another and if that’s what you are wanting, Flowers By GiMi are a sure bet.
