Penny Redmond and Katherine Owens brought 30 years of passion and extensive experience in wedding floristry to Posy & Twine Florist when they opened in Telopea in April this year.

Their ambitious vision was to offer an earth-friendly focus through their style, products and techniques by removing the unnecessary plastics in floristry. In keeping with this ethos, their flowers are sourced locally or from elsewhere within Australia.

The benefit of this approach is threefold: improved longevity of local flowers which have not suffered importation and fumigation; minimisation of their environmental footprint and support of the local economy.

 Posy & Twine’s signature wrappings are recyclable or compostable including the non-plastic bags used to keep the flowers fresh. No conventional design cardboard boxes, cellophane, plastic containers or toxic floral foam are used. Instead you will find lush floral posies and vase arrangements with an abundance of texture which artfully combine fresh and dried seasonal blooms.

To compliment the floral offerings, a unique range of handmade gift wares made locally or elsewhere in Australia have been sourced. This range includes macramé homewares from Rydalmere, sock toys from North Ryde, candles from Winston Hills, chocolates from Rydalmere and Melbourne and soaps from Queensland. A variety of these products feature the work of Indigenous artists who directly benefit from the sale of the products.

“We have only been open since the beginning of April 2019, so we are beyond thrilled to have Sara offer her support in the area of marketing our new business. We know that we have a style and mission that will be of interest to many, but Sara has been a huge help helping us to build awareness in the local area, assisting us with our website, social media, developing our Mother’s Day campaign and acting as a sounding board for our business growth generally,” said Penny and Katherine.
