Happy Place Flowers is a unique and personal Florist, based in Johannesburg. Before Sandi started the company, she worked in advertising and always knew that her creative background could be used to create special moments in people’s lives.
She often heard the phrase “nature versus nurture”, and wondered if talent could be passed down or learnt? Sandi grew up watching her mother, spending countless hours creating dresses for brides and bridesmaids, helping them realise their special day.
It’s thanks to her mother, she got to see a different side to weddings. In a way she “arranged” for her first steps into floristry.
She always loved the idea of working with her hands and beautiful objects and so naturally, she started with flowers, but her full vision for the company is about creating happy memories. This is why she followed her dream to be a florist and hopefully a guardian of happiness.
Sandi feels like she is a living cliché, “if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life.” Hence the name Happy Place.
