Getting to Know... Sinikka Floral

Portobello Bride Member: Flowers
Sinikka Floral Design | Website | Blog | Facebook

What’s your favourite part of your job?
When something comes back into season that you haven’t seen in awhile... such as peonies roses in late Spring.

What are you reading at the moment?
Rereading ‘Captain Corelli’s Mandolin’ Louis de Bernieres

What are you lusting after at the moment?
Jonathan Adler Sprout vases

Top three songs on your play list?
Arcade Fire – We used to wait
Camera Obscura – Country Mile
Leeden – Daddy Long Legs

What is your favourite moment during a wedding?
I love a good speech at a wedding... heartfelt, funny stories... even the cringe-worthy ones by an awkward best man!

Who inspires you?
Melanie of Cecilia Fox Floral Studio, she is an inspiration and has been a wonderful mentor.

Favourite Cocktail?
I love a mojito on a summer evening.

What does it take to impress you?
It’s the attention to little details, when thought has been put into something ordinary to make it out of the ordinary.

What is the best piece of advice you were ever given?

Nothing will work unless you do.

Favourite way to spend a Sunday?
Late morning in bed, reading Martha Stewart on my ipad, with a constant supply of hot tea and toast. (the reality is, 6am wake up with our baby girl squealing and smiling and pulling my hair!)

Black Tie or Casual?
I’m a casual lass most of the time, but always love an excuse to frock up and wear a pair of heels.

Your suggestion for a new name for ‘Hens party’
hmmm...all my ideas seem to incorporate a rooster!

Your favourite hostess gift to give?
I love giving my friends and family flowers that they haven’t seen before. Celosia is always a fun one to give because of its texture and shape.

What’s the best gift you have ever received?
My husband took me to a Japanese Mountain Retreat in Montrose for our first year anniversary, because I am obsessed with the film ‘Lost in Translation’ and wanted to wear slippers sitting on the edge of a bed like Bill Murray.

Three words that describe you best.
Thankful, Motivated, Content.

Thanks so much for sharing with us today Sarah!
