Flowers and Strings, Farthingstone

We are so in love with this beautiful boutique florist and artisan macrame biz with an emphasis on being kind to the environment.

Fancy a slice of The Good Life? Talented florist and macrame whizz Katrina Leahy has cut herself a big wedge, having recently set up her creative business from the home she shares with her flock of children, chickens and various other animals too numerous to mention.

Flowers and Strings is all about creating stunning pieces with a low carbon footprint so Katrina grows many of the flowers used in her arrangements herself with an emphasis on native species, often bringing unexpectedly beautiful elements into her work such as chard flowers and grasses alongside everyone’s favourite blousy dahlias and striking alliums. This is the most fabulously eye-catching art in flower form. Katrina also offers a flower drying service, so your wedding bouquet will look gorgeous as a memory to keep.

And speaking of art, the Strings part of the business refers to the gorgeous macrame pieces Katrina makes by hand, from pretty wall hangings, jam jar vase hangers and air plant hangers to fruit hanging nets, key rings and even water bottle carriers.

With a sharp eye for the fine details, Katrina will work with you to create the perfect flowers for your wedding or event, or to create a beautiful and personal gift for someone special.
