When she was 11-years-old, Peggy Fletcher’s parents bought a flower shop in Peace River, Alberta. She has been working as a florist ever since, and this month opens her floral studio in Point Roberts.
“We have a little over an acre here and the studio is attached to our barn,” Fletcher said. “I do a lot of foraging on our property and my style is very garden-ey with lots of texture.”
Brambles & Blackberries is not a retail florist, but a studio, she explained. “It is seasonal and event-related.”
To usher in the Christmas season, the studio will have an open house on Saturday, November 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 519 Island View Lane.
“There will be an eclectic array of different things,” Fletcher said, including items for sale and gift cards. “I really enjoy Christmas.”
Among the services Brambles & Blackberries offers are flowers for events like weddings or decorating your home for the season. Fletcher said she would also consider starting a subscription service if there is enough interest.
