“I love flowers, people and making things look pretty. I am always up for a challenge to help make my clients events memorable and creating something unique and lasting.”
I had the privilege of spending a couple of hours in this person’s presence and what a presence it is!
It is impossible not to be infected by her passion and the joy she gets from doing what she loves.
We sit on the porch of their farmhouse in the city, sipping tea with freshly baked cake. Her two beautiful kids run around the house playing catch while the horses nod happily.
Hanania tells me that she grew up in the “little city” of Bloemfontein. Her youth was by no means typical as she became an international model at the age of 15 and spent most of her time on contracts in Italy, France, Greece & Japan. Finishing school via the post made her someone to reckon with and her business shows exactly that.
Lots of creativity, a great personality and a beautiful unique product.
She got her hands on secondhand ivy walls from Facebook to decorate an eyesore of a wall in the garden and realized after some investigation that there was a gap in the market. With a leap of faith (equally so from the hubby) she ordered silk flowers from China in 2018 and since then has been head over heels for these beauties. Roses, peonies and orchids are just the tip of the rose bush… 😊
The name hannah was the obvious choice when choosing a name for the business as it was the name of her late grandmother who was a strong, dynamic woman and an amazing artist. Flowers run in the family apparently. Hanania’s mom has been a florist for years and passed the skills onto her while working side by side.
The hannah team has created the backdrops to fashion shoots, transformed venues into flower fantasies for weddings, birthdays and baby showers. It took them a week of glue gun magic to create two massive flower walls (2.0 x 2.4m each). These are available to rent with a variety of other beautiful creations to make your day special.
“I have a background in marketing, event management as well as a law degree, but the creative blood inside me got the upper hand and I decided to create this boutique business.”
This team is not afraid to get their hands dirty and can customize pretty much anything you can think up. They mix fresh; dry and silk flowers to create the perfect look!
Their offerings include:
- Flower Walls,
- Floristry – Wedding; corporate; personal, Décor rentals,
