‘I am one of those lucky people who just adore what they do! I love inspiring people for the momentous moments & special occasions in their life with exquisite flowers and beautiful styling props.

My love of flowers stems from spending hours amongst the blooms and herbs in my grandmother’s garden as a little girl. Playing inside cavernous branches of the magnificent hydrangea, picking one of my Grandfather’s prized roses to carry around with me all day to enjoy it’s sweet perfume…. relocating snails out of the garden and worms into the garden.

Now, on my farm, I wake up bright and early to collect the florals for the day as Lewis, our grandpa rescue Goose & his little buddy Frankie,  cheekily welcomes the sun and watches protectively over his family of hens & guinea fowl.  Rosie, my rowdy pup runs happily through the rows of peonies with a basket to help/hinder me collecting them. Tex the little black rescue cat stretches out in the sun on the top run of the garden bed. Rod, my main squeeze, plays flamenco guitar under the weeping fig while I design a fabulous floral gown for a photo shoot. Life is perfect, I’m living my dream.

I love creating & designing beautiful pieces of floral art – from sweet and simple all the way to the spectacular! Working with event coordinators, I help bring a room, marquee or simple area to life with flowers. Flowers relax, be-dazzle, impress and evokes the senses through sweet perfumes.

I take the utmost pride in my Designs & my Name.  Julia Rose is the Creative Director for the Main Beach Spring Flower Festival.
