Introducing the five behind-the-scenes people who, together, joined forces to create what is now the wonderful world of 89 Petals. Pulling together all of our expertise, from social to sunflowers, analytics to amaryllis and words to wisteria, we found the perfect mix to deliver the best flowers, provide the best service and bring out the best you.
Megan Lily is the face of Megan Lily Flowers and is the floral mastermind behind all of our designer bouquets at 89 Petals, adding a touch of uniqueness and beauty to homes across the nation.
Megan works from her garden ‘shed’ to create eye-catching blooms and boasts Florist of the Year 2013 finalist to her credentials. Not to mention being an exceptionally sought-after bridal florist for stunning wedding bouquets and arrangements. Her floral feel is natural and loose, not manipulating the flowers too much. And while she does enjoy a colour pop, she is drawn to more subtle hues. Between sourcing flowers, styling blooms and running her enterprise, Megan is also a busy mummy to her young daughter. When Megan isn’t knee-deep in petals, she can be found baking, reading a good novel or (timidly admitting) listening to Radio 2.
Gabi is the whizz behind our digital marketing, social media and website here at 89 Petals, and is the point of contact for you, our beautiful and loyal customers. This entrepreneur has a soft spot for daisies and wild flowers, and sits them on her desk, where she can see them when beavering away for 89 Petals, as well as her own bold and bright bespoke stationery company, Chroma. That’s of course when she isn’t dining out, photographing her mini dachshund Toby or swinging her stuff at ballroom dancing.
Clio is a busy mother of three with a communications day job who still finds the brain space to bring the ideas, concepts, flair and decision-making to 89 Petals. When Clio isn’t knee-deep in Playmobil or staring at logo and packaging
options, you will find her subscribing to absolutely anything, from soap to songs, as she truly believes it can make your life less stressful. Hence her idea of flowers on subscription. After a busy day with kids or business, Clio
tries to overcome her fear of animals with horse riding lessons (resulting in her either crying or laughing).
Laura is responsible for all the words and fab reads that come to you from 89 Petals. Having written for well-known magazines and websites on beautiful lifestyle subjects, Laura definitely loves all the pretty things in life. And who can blame her with a professional rugby husband and two energetic boys. Flowers, candles, baths and anything beautiful are her escape from all the testosterone, and a long run to vent her annoyance of a typo (the typo that sent her marathon running must have been bad!).
Mike is the token male in the team. He leaves all the flowery, creative work to his female colleagues and sorts the finance, administration and logistics. When he’s not taking care of the kids, he can be found in front of a spreadsheet with a coffee in hand. He loves sunflowers, but is acutely aware he doesn’t have the final say so in anything (cue wife, Clio). And given Clio doesn’t like sunflowers or anything yellow, he basically never has them.
So that right there is your team who bring you 89 Petals. A varied and motley crew, but all with one common goal; to bring you a touch of happiness and luxury through our designer bouquets, so you feel just that little bit special. Quite simply, because you deserve it.
Together we want to bring happiness to homes across the nation, as we know that everyone is deserving of just a special little something to make life that bit more enjoyable.
