Hello and welcome to my page! I’m Rebekah – flower addict, musician and mummy. For those of you interested in the story behind Rose & Rhubarb…read on!
Flowers have always been a fascination for me – even as a toddler, I was captivated by their shape, scent and colour. I was fortunate to grow up in a family of keen gardeners in the beautiful Suffolk countryside, surrounded by nature at its best. I have always loved the changing seasons, and the English countryside, and wherever possible, I try to use local, seasonally-grown flowers. Growing up, I got involved in flower arranging at quite a young age – entering my first competition at the age of 8! After several years of competing in flower festivals and shows, I decided to focus on my other love – music. A music degree, a decade of teaching and a baby followed. Apart from the odd floral request from a family member, floristry took a back seat – until my brother asked a 6-month pregnant me to do the flowers for his wedding…! Although quite stressful at the time (I had just returned to work before the wedding), I loved every minute of it, and various people made me think that perhaps I could do this professionally…
Fast forward nearly a year, and I am beginning the journey of running my own floristry business. As the saying goes, watch this space…!
The name of my business is inspired by my two gorgeous, albeit mischievous, young children, who together with my ever-patient and constantly supportive husband, are my inspiration.
