From a farming background where 'growing your own' for the local show was a must, I have had a love of flowers since I was a young girl. My Grandad Woodley gave me my first bunch of sweet peas for my bedroom straight from his allotment, and that was it!
I began 'learning the ropes' when I was 13 years old with a Saturday job at a local garden centre, being trained by an amazing floral designer. Since then I have used my flair for floral design to produce flowers for all occasions. I still enter local shows and national 'NAFAS' shows where I have won many prizes.
It's now time for me to realise my forever dream with my own florists, so here we are. Why Mad Hatter? Well, I have a love for everything 'Alice in Wonderland' - the story set in the countryside with a young girl's imagination running wild seems very apt. All my floral creations are bespoke, using seasonal British grown flowers wherever possible.- Kerry Thomas
