About Alice

If you were to mix fascination and creativity and a passion for natural beauty, you will have found Alice de Crom, designer and creator of Floralista Flower Studio. Alice’s love of beauty in nature began when she was born into a world of flowers. Commercial flower production was the family business, and her parents were professional horticulturists. Blossoms of living colour where the fascinating reward of every fragile seedling Alice learned to transplant and nurture. But, she is an artist, and what do you suppose she turned to for inspiration when she chose her life’s work?

Alice enrolled in floral design at the prestigious Thomas Hobbs Florist in Vancouver and later studied business at British Columbia Institute of Technology. She worked in the industry to gain skill and experience, testing different techniques and markets. Alice has also travelled to New York and Portland for an exclusive Wedding Masters Class and Design Class through ‘The Little Flower School’ with world-renowned florists Nicolette Camille and Sarah Ryhanen of Saipua. As well, Alice has taken a sustainable flower farming course with one of the nation’s foremost organic ‘farmer-florists’, Erin Benzakein of Floret Flower Farm.

Floralista Flower Studio was created by Alice for all who love or need flowers, whatever their whim or occasion may be. Her floral design is whimsical and natural, and it plays with loosely structured forms and movements. The studio is located on Billy Brown Road across from the apartments in Bedford Landing. There, you will find Alice in her storefront studio surrounded by flowers, creating arrangements and bouquets of rare and exquisite beauty.
