Brighten Your Day at Plush Floral Studio

This is a post for the series, Rediscovering Hastings St. – The Heights in Burnaby.

Let me start this blog by saying, I LOVE this blog series.  I think, that’s even an understatement.  I am so lucky to be in such vibrant community with merchants so talented and creative. I am so privileged to get to know them in person through my blog.  I am happy that I decided to do this.  What I am experiencing and learning is just invaluable.

Every time I walk along The Heights (we are on the north side of Hastings and Esmond), I see this beautiful flower shop, Plush Floral Studio, across the street but never had the chance to take a look inside. This time, I’m glad I did! The beauty you see from the outside is incomparable to what you’ll see inside! And I came at the right time.  All the flowers have just been delivered! The whole studio was packed with beautiful, colourful flowers!

Plush Floral Studio has been in the Heights for almost 4 years! Wow! That is success! Mandy Karpoff is very talented, creative, artistic and as vibrant as her flowers.  You can all see that very evident in her studio, not just in her floral arrangements but also in her sign boards and visual displays.

Mandy has been doing flowers rooting back when she was a teenager in Alberta until she moved to Vancouver and finally found a home in The Heights for her passion for flowers. Mandy has been trained and worked with a lot of European style flower arrangements. She describes her arrangements being contemporary and minimalistic with not a lot of fillers, bringing emphasis to the beauty of the flowers.  She also uses flowers that last a long time like orchids.
