A Rose By Any Other Vase: Meet The British-Maltese Florist Granting Flowers Glorious Immortality

Article Featured Image

If nature was a woman, flowers would be her bosom – beautiful to look at, soft to touch and (we hope) scented with grace. Flowers brighten up any table, corner, wedding, funeral, break up, garden and the occasional hairpiece whenever a Royal Wedding rolls around. But what happens to those flowers once they’ve been picked?

They die.

But did you know that not all flowers have to die?

You do now.

Petal Parlour is a floristry business in Malta that preserves roses and stores them in old, recycled hat boxes instead of a the traditional vases. The project is headed by Emily, who was born in the UK to Maltese and British parents.

She had always wanted to grow up and work with flowers and when she came across this method of preserving roses she knew exactly what she wanted to do.

Emily noticed a gap in the market for an alternative to traditional floristry and thought it would be a perfect idea to open up shop in Malta, where she operates from Sliema. She already had a flower wall business set up in the UK and loved the idea of bringing the concept to our shores.

Emily simply adores the hat boxes as she feels they add a unique touch to the flowers and stand out against the norm of a conventional vase.

Her personal favourite bouquet is the Tiffany blue rose, with extra diamanté sparkle, in a clear box with a ribbon wrap.

Emily loves to bring joy to others through her expression of floral art, making a particular effort to personalise orders with letters and such to make it just that extra bit special for her customer. They can even choose the colour of box and rose they would prefer.

Petal Parlour has only been in operation for a short while but that hasn’t stopped Emily from aiming big with plans to reinvent the Maltese floristry scene.

Tag your beau in the comments below and let them know you expect more than just an ordinary bouquet from here on out.
