OPENING in Bathurst eight years ago, Vanessa Pringle Floral Designs provides fresh flowers and floral designs to the region.
Owner Vanessa Pringle said the company specialises in event floristry and flower subscriptions.
"We offer same day delivery, with the freshest flowers, which we source from the Sydney Flower Markets," she said. "Our Friday flower special 'Posy Express' is very popular."
"We are absolutely thrilled to win this prestigious award. In a town of so many incredible businesses, it's very hard to take home an award like this. It's an honour that we are so very proud to hold."
Vanessa said the team of four staff specialise in creating bespoke floral designs and pride themselves on their high quality customer service, whether you are buying a single rose or a whole room full of florals.
"There's no secret to success, its hard work and really having a vision for what you want to achieve, having the right people around you who share your goals and not being put off by setbacks. Dust yourself off and keep going," she said, adding the flower studio was her 'happy place'.
"It's full of fresh flowers, berries, and foliage. It's a great source of inspiration that changes daily depending on the market availability.
This advertising feature is sponsored by the following business:
"In addition, I love the customers who come into our studio, and being able to brighten days or help commemorate milestones in people's lives. I'm very grateful for that opportunity."
Vanessa said being involved with the community important to the business.
"Engaging with our customers and finding out their individual needs ensures a high level of customer satisfaction. We pride ourselves on always going the extra mile.
We really like to get involved with local community groups, often making donations to raffles and giveaways. We also help with the 'pansy picking' at Kings Parade, we help the local primary school kids pick the end of season flowers before the next planting goes in and gift them to the local aged care facilities.
"We know it's the little things that make a difference in people's lives and we try to get involved wherever we can lend a hand."
Soon to be on the move after recently purchasing a new shopfront, Vanessa said she looks forward to expanding the business at a sustainable rate. "It's a much bigger space and we'll be able to offer more service and expand our team of staff."
