Pronounced 'fol-ye', which is Italian for 'leaves', Foglie is all about those pretty things that brighten our day ... and more.
Owner Lily Contento is first and foremost an artist, a poet, a fact which is immediately evident in her creations. She uses the many standard and exotic plants in her shop to compose unique verses of colour, texture and scent to the delight of her clients.
Roses of all colours, callas, orchids, protea, lilies, gerberas, leucadendrons, gingers, birds of paradise, St John's wort, Bells of Ireland, Queen Anne's lace, China berries as well as a vast variety of stunning greens are just some of the phrases that Foglie can combine into your poetic arrangement. Pick the flowers yourself or let the professional staff help you.
You might also consider commissioning a poem to accompany your arrangement, a service you will not find anywhere else.
With a Masters in English and floral training in Europe, Lily ensures Foglie will provide you with something that is truly distinctive. Combining creativity with research, Foglie can help you create a period wedding, from the Renaissance to the psychedlic 60s and all eras beyond and in between.
Distinctive gift baskets, with or without floral details, can also be made to reflect all occasions at hand.
Lily likes to share her talents, offering workshops every month into topics such as Ikebana (check the Events link above for details).
Located in the Hillcrest Village area of St Clair, just west of Christie, Foglie can deliver anywhere in the GTA, or the world, as a member of the FTD network.
Whether it is an occasion of remembrance or celebration, a poetic floral creation from Foglie will make 'your love grow'.
