Karen started out by going to Bedford College to study Floristry as a way to overcome her allergies (yes she is mad) in 2009, by 2010 the course finished and she came out of it with a distinction level (top marks). In 2011 she left her job and slowly started building up the items she needed and getting the word out that she was starting her very own company.
Early in 2012 Forever Flowers was born!
It didn’t take long for Karen to become extremely busy, to the point she brought Liam (her son) into the company. With one to one training Liam has become an excellent florist.
They decided to venture into running a shop, so they opened a small shop in Willington home and garden centre for a short while, before deciding to take on a bigger shop.
In October 2015 they opened their shop 23 Chiltern Avenue.
Due to their excellent floristry and fantastic customer service skills, their popularity continues to grow and so, they have been joined by Emma (Liam’s Fiancée) and David (Karen’s Husband and Liam’s Dad) who both volunteer their time helping to answer customer calls, make deliveries and help with the careful conditioning of the flowers.
