Shopping Local at Wallingford Flowers, Echuca

I thought today I would tease you all with some images I took from a recent visit catch up with local Echuca florist and Flower Queen, Lisa O'Connell from Wallingford Flowers.

Lisa runs her business from a gorgeous old dairy at the rear of her family home on the outskirts of Echuca. She specialises mainly in weddings and other special functions and her floral arrangements can be found in quite a few well known restaurants and venues around Echuca, such as Oscar W's, Perricoota Station, Tindarra resort, Morrison's Winery, Perricoota Vines Retreat,,,,,just to name a few.

With 26 years experience up her sleeve,  Lisa has quite a big and impressive portfolio. She offers a very personalised experience which is exactly what you want when organising a special event.

The day I visit Lisa, her studio is full of flowers (Lisa tells me she has a few weddings and a bridal expo to prepare for). The old dairy is bursting with character and has a very quaint and inviting feel to it, making a visit to Wallingford Flowers a very personal one. You can't help but love the cornflower blue door and a gorgeous old vintage chandaleir hanging from the ceiling, which I think says alot about Lisa's style and her warm and bubbly personality.

Lisa tries to source her flowers as locally as possible, but also from a specialist buyer to ensure the quality is high. Surrounding the studio is Lisa's lovely garden and in particular a beautiful rose bed filled with all types of roses which are also used in her floral arrangements. As you drive up the front driveway you will see a paddock filled with lavender that Lisa uses as well.

Throughout the year Lisa offers a few flower workshops which are held in the old dairy. A lovely and fun way to spend a day with friends and learning some new skills. More information can be found by following on Wallingford Flower's facebook page, or contact Lisa directly.
