Spotlight on a Supplier: Twig & Grace
4th February 2014
Doesn’t this lady just look like a whole lot of fun! This is none other than the gorgeous Dezley from Twig & Grace, a florist/homewares store/cafe located in the Noosa hinterland and brimming with unique style. Having been a vintage enthusiast long before it became “trendy”, it’s no wonder today’s Sunshine Coast brides love Dezley’s adorable store. Today, Dezley is in our spotlight.
When talking to brides about their wedding flower arrangements, Dezley really takes the time to get to know you, your family, your loves, your style and everything that is special to you, because she strongly believes that it is these important elements that will define a brides day as “her day”. Dezley wants to know about your favourite colours, any family heirlooms, favourite scents – she wants to find out who the bride is, so that she can create flowers that are not necessarily the most expensive flowers or the latest flowers, straight out of a magazine, but that hold special meanings and that sets it a part from other weddings so that it is not only beautiful, but memorable.
Committed to supporting local businesses, Twig & Grace use locally grown flowers where possible. Dezley knows and loves all the local Sunshine Coast flower farmers, they are like family to her and they even bring her in pumpkins from their farm when they deliver her flowers – cute! Buying local also often cuts down costs, which in turn saves brides!
Dezley really has her finger on the pulse. Not only has Twig & Grace been featured in Home Beautiful magazine, but she has worked in Melbourne alongside the very talented team at Cecilia Fox. These guys are well known for specializing in bespoke flowers & styling for huge special occasions and large events.
Twig & Grace make one of the best cups of coffee on the Sunshine Coast, so make sure you try one whilst you are kicking back, being inspired by Dezley’s creative awesomeness. In the meantime, grab yourself a cuppa in the comfort of your own home, sit back and get to know Dezley intimately via our interview with this truly lovely lady. Enjoy!

T&G: Start with a fantastic florist – haha, I know of a good one! Build a good rapport with the professionals you have chosen and trust them.
