Based in Canmore

We are so happy to be in Canada and to have chosen to live and work in Canmore.

After visiting Canada in 2017, Canmore became the obvious choice for starting a new life for us, our two daughters, and our dog Max. 

We bring over 28 years of experience in the international floral business, specifically from Brazil and Europe. We have had the opportunity to learn from the best and most renowned floral design teachers of Europe. At Floral Design Brasil, thousands of students have learned to become professional florists and decorators. 

At Blue Lakes Floral Design, we apply everything we know to create the most stunning bouquets and floral decorations for Rocky Mountain weddings and events.

We look forward to hearing from you!
