Dublin company styles unique flower bunches and they are stunning
Claire Ryan and Steph Hutch have been friends since they were 12-years-old.
The pair both have backgrounds in fashion and design. They also share a love of flowers.
A noticeable gap in the market and a passion for styled floral arrangements allowed them to set up The Crate - a Dublin based company that creates flower bunches that are on-trend, locally sourced, and most importantly, unique.
The Crate's wildflower bunches are available to order online for same-day delivery provided you place your order by 1pm Monday to Friday.
But these stunning non-traditional bouquets have also been popping up alongside brands like Primark, Topshop, and Taste of Dublin.
Claire and Steph offer one-to-one consultation sessions and have seen their creations decorate everything from weddings to pop-up installations.
The pair told Her that they want to bring their clients' stories "to life through flowers."
"We take a lot of inspiration from Instagram and Pinterest, looking to see what other florists and stylists are doing internationally.
We find ideas from fashion. Seeing colours and trends coming through each season helps us put together interesting designs."
As Claire and Steph like to focus on seasonal designs, they find that foraging locally is a handy way to come up with new ideas to keep their designs as on-trend as possible.
And as their wildflower styles change from week-to-week, customers never receive the same design twice.
Claire and Steph say that this kind of flower arranging appealed to them because it had never been done in Ireland before.
"Our style is very relaxed and we put a big focus on our packaging which is responsibly sourced using recyclable materials including eco-Kraft paper and string."
A single bunch of flowers from The Crate will cost you €35.
