About Them

Can you please fully explain your business or product line?

We create preserved floral pieces including vase arrangements, hoop-style wreaths, wall installations, and bouquets. These types of florals are meant to be long-lasting with minimal care so that they can be enjoyed for a long period of time!

With the Winnipeg local maker community continuing to grow, what is the most important thing you’d like potential customers of your company to know?

All of our pieces can be customized to a customer’s liking! We also offer style tips for home accents including, for example, what type of pampas would look best in an already owned vase. 

What inspired you to start your business?

During the second lockdown of the pandemic, the cold kept us indoors for a good amount of time and the cabin fever was pushing us to find new hobbies. We started upcycling vases for our own home and there were a lot of compliments from friends & family. We decided to look at fillers for these vases and discovered the world of preserved florals. We enjoyed putting together pieces for our own home so much that we wanted to do the same for others and par Chloe florals came to fruition!

What was the biggest struggle you’ve had to overcome?

The comparison game. It’s very tricky to look at other makers’ beautiful pieces and not compare your work to theirs, but another kind maker once told us to “claim our space”. That really stuck with us and motivates us to keep trying new things. 

What has been your biggest success as a maker?

Taking part in pop-up markets where we have been networking with other makers and creating relationships with customers. 

Do you have any advice that you would pass on to someone hoping to start up their own business or product line?

I will pass on the message that another maker shared with us (as mentioned above): claim your space! Figure out what you’re truly passionate about; that creates confidence in your work and that confidence will fuel quality products. 

Please share any upcoming events as well as the best place(s) for people to purchase your product!

You can find us at Inspirations Market, November 11-12 @ Assiniboia Downs. All products available for purchase can also be found on our Instagram page.
