For today’s Blogmas we have another Small Business Spotlight and today’s small business spotlight is on the wonderful company called Catkin Studio. Who are a florist with a twist but I was first drawn to them on due to their baubles.
Catkin Studio is a florist with a twist they Specialise with dried flowers that have a celebratory feeling to them whilst bringing fun & colour to their unique pieces. This is something I wanted to include as a small business spotlight during Blogmas due to the fact they are making the most adorable dry flower baubles. Something I think people would love this time of year.
This spotlight is being done slightly differently as Louise has provided a lot of information about how she got started with this incredible small business so it just had to be shared. Louise has also kindly sent some photos of her products to be put in this post so you can all see just how amazing this company is!
Please can you provide a short background to how you got started in floristry?
Floristry inspired me when I was lacking direction in my second year of graphic design and looking for my creative niche. I wanted a change from screen-based work to setting where my interests in nature and colour would be better serviced in creating art not just in the image of but formed from the world around us. This led me to start studying floristry and spent time working in shops to gain experience and further developing my own unique style.
What makes your work different to other florists in Scotland?
I’d say Catkin is different because I’m doing what I believe is current and true to my own artfulness. There are endless ways to modernise floristry and that keeps me interested in new scenes and styles that has my work constantly evolving and the trade popular.
How are you as a business ethical?
All of my arrangements are free from plastic floral foam,single use plastics and will feature recyclable materials where possible. I’m continually look for more ways to promote ethical floristry and improve this within my work.
They are based in Glasgow & the West of Scotland.

Working with Louise on creating this post has genuinely been a lovely experience. I would like to thank Louise for giving me the opportunity to write about this wonderful company and also for being so lovely through-out.
Anyone who knows me well knows that my obsession with Christmas goes a little overboard regularly but that means I love looking for quirky additions to my decorations and that is how I fell in love with this adorable little company. Dried flowers in baubles isn’t something I thought I would need in my life but it 100% is.
