Little Thistle

Specializing in Weddings and Events


Little Thistle is a boutique floral studio offering services for weddings, funerals and special events.


I offer complimentary private consultations to sit down with you and walk through the design process. Together we will create the floral look you envisioned while staying within a budget you are comfortable with. Feel free to bring a friend or loved one with you.

As the owner and sole employee of Little Thistle Floral Design, I book only one wedding or major event per week. Therefore, you can rest assured that my time and attention is fully committed to planning, ordering and designing floral arrangements for your special day. Delivery and set-up available upon request.

Funeral Arrangements

Casket sprays, standing sprays, wreaths and vase arrangements are available with 3 business days notice.

Special Events

I can also create and deliver arrangements for special events such as birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, new baby, graduations, dinner parties or “just because”.


After completing my biology degree at Queen’s University, I knew I wanted to branch away from academia and spend some time tapping into my creative roots. Having loved arranging garden bouquets for my mom as a little girl, I decided to try my hand at floral design. That is when I approached Eric Cardinal - the owner of Mood Moss Flowers in Ottawa, and now a dear friend. Eric took me on as an apprentice and I spent a year studying floral design under his guidance and mentorship.

Since then, I have been asked by several friends to make flower arrangements for their weddings. I decided to start Little Thistle Floral Design as a formal way to continue my passion for florals. You can now find me creating unique and beautiful arrangements in my newly renovated home studio, with my trusty sidekick Louie the bulldog.
