About US

Simpson’s Florist is made up of a team of flower-loving, passionate florists who feel incredibly lucky every day to bring joy to others and be a part of some of the biggest events in our clients’ lives.

 

The business was established in 1991, making us one of the oldest florists in Edinburgh. I (Frances) became the proud owner in 2020. Not many crazy people were taking over businesses in the middle of a pandemic but I was that person!

 

I came to floristry as a second career after spending fifteen years in corporate retail as a Head of Sales Operations for a major supermarket chain. Having studied languages at university, I did not set out to be a florist but with a long-time love of flowers and a desire to make the world a more colourful place, I decided to follow my heart, left my retail career behind and here I am today.

 

I have learned floristry on the job which has given me a real understanding not just of textures, forms, and styles but the amount of love, instinct, and consideration that go into every design.

 

Fast forward to today and I am lucky enough to now have a team of five dedicated, talented and innovative florists who share my passion and desire to create beautiful, bespoke, handcrafted arrangements from both fresh and dried flowers. All the team have their own natural style but everyone is highly trained in multiple styles of floristry, meaning that we can help with whatever you’re looking for.

 

Showing what we are capable of, in 2022 we were proud to take part in the prestigious Fleurs de Villes exhibition at the St James Quarter in Edinburgh alongside fifteen other Scottish florists. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and were delighted that our mannequin of Frida Kahlo won Best in Show.

 

As a small family-run business I oversee everything and I hope that this personal approach is evident when customers call or visit us in the shop. Caring and friendly, I want people to feel at ease with us, so when it comes to their vision, whether for a wedding, funeral, event, or gift they are left feeling listened to and happy.

 

We love meeting our customers – whether in person, on the phone or virtually. If you need flowers for any occasion we’d be delighted to help!
