Meet Your Florist

Creations inspired by something so beautiful and cheerful, meet June, your florist at The Flower Affect. A local florist in the Twin Cities area, June will bring your mental image of a perfect floral arrangement or bouquet to life. June specializes in bringing the floral “bling” to your wedding day and other special events.

It takes someone with an extra special touch to cut, twist and tie these uplifting arrangements to customize your floral designs. In asking your florist, “what do you love about your job?” June quotes, “I love working with flowers and how can you not want to work with something that is so beautiful and cheerful! You can be having a bad day or moment, open the cooler and just smell and see all the flowers. It is an instant “pick me up!” In addition, I get great satisfaction from designing and creating an arrangement. I also love the feeling of when someone receives a bouquet, you know it is just brightens their day!”

As a little girl, June had informal experience putting boutiques together, where she would pick and cut flowers from her mother’s garden. She started taking floral design classes five years ago. In addition, she attends floral shows, seminars and watches online videos for new trends and colors. June shared, “The best way for me to learn was learning on the job, getting advice and tricks of the trade from other individuals who have worked in the industry.”

I inquired from June what her favorite flower is (assuming all florists have a favorite to work with). She states, “My favorite flower is an Astra purple (purple daisy).” She also likes white daisies, which was also her mother's favorite flower whose garden inspired June. “Daisies are simple and pure, they also last extremely well in cut bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres”, June shares.

The Flower Affect is different from other local floral businesses as it is a home studio and not a storefront. This enables pricing to be very competitive. In addition, working in a home studio allows her to be completely focused on your event without interruption of incoming customers. June does all the designing herself and meets with her customers face-to-face. She is very hands on and, when requested, will do sample arrangements for her clients so they will have a visual of the final product.
