My name is Jen Mildon and I have been arranging flowers since I could handle a pair of scissors. I was honoured to train with Paul Stannard who won Gold at the Ellerslie Flower Show, Auckland, New Zealand. Once fully qualified as a florist, I travelled to Australia and worked with florists in Sydney and Townsville.
Whilst still in my early 20’s, I decided to broaden my knowledge and skills by working with florists overseas, so travelled to Germany, England and Canada. I had some really great experiences and learnt how to create flower arrangements in so many different ways.
After this time of travelling, I returned to NZ and started up a florist business called Amazing Arrangements. But Australia was calling me back, so I returned, finally finding a beautiful little seaside town called Yeppoon. I really love it here where I have made some wonderful friends, so have settled down to become a local.
When the florist shop sold where I was recently working in Yeppoon, I decided to set up my own business again and work from home.
I love creating beautiful unique designs, and making a bride’s day memorable in the very best way. I am very fortunate to work in an industry that allows me to express my creative side with colours and textures in the form of beautiful flowers. I also get to share the happiness from all my clients.
