Tell us a bit about your Sprigs & Stems…

Sprigs & Stems is a new business based in St Albans, Hertfordshire. It was started up by Sarah Haefeli after working for a top London florist for 4 years, decided to take the leap and set up her own baby/ company! 

What made you start up the business…

From a little girl I have always loved being creative and playing with flowers, often being told off for picking flowers from my mums garden or attempting to sell perfume to my neighbours made from their flowers! But never considered making it into a career until 5 years into my decided career working in Mental health was not making me happy; so thought why not follow my passion and become a florist.

I was lucky to get an amazing internship with a top London Florist, who not only encouraged my creativity but helped to hone my skills and experience. Meaning after 4 years there felt ready to set up on my own.

What makes you Unique…

I feel that my previous career helps me understand what clients want as well as the therapeutic benefits that flowers can bring to you. I am passionate in what I do and nothing makes me happier when I see the person receiving my flowers be it a small thank you bouquet or lavish wedding reception and their reaction! 

Tells us what you love about your business…

That each wedding is unique and different so even if someone chooses the same colour scheme it will often look completely different as there are so many different textures, shapes and varieties of flowers and foliage that you can use.

Most favourite event/ wedding…

This is a really difficult question, but I think one of the first weddings i did as Sprigs and Stems is special to me. As not only was it my first wedding for my business, the mother of the bride was growing much of the flowers and also going to the local farmers market to collect local foliage and flowers, so was turning up to the venue a couple of days before the wedding with little idea of what materials I would be using! This was actually quite nice as didn’t have to stress about whether the roses were perfectly open or rush round different wholesalers when my wholesaler had been unable to get the correct shade of gerberea needed the night before the wedding!

I also decorated two butcher bikes for the first time which I loved doing as the couple were keen cyclists. This wedding summed up the couples personality so perfectly and being able to use flowers to do this was such fun!
