Twig & Bloom

Starting off her career life as a Medical Laboratory Scientist, Caro’s fascination with biology, her creative brain and love of flowers, led her to go on and train as a florist. She has alternated between the two careers for the past 30 years. Caro dreamed of one day owning her own florist shop in a beautiful place.

Dreams do come true and it was by sheer coincidence, being in the right place at the right time, that Caro came upon purchasing Twig & Bloom, in Matakana Village.

Living in Wanaka and holidaying in Whangateau every year since she was a child, Caro was having lunch in Matakana when she saw the for-sale sign in the window of Twig & Bloom. “I knew instantly that fate had brought me there. I purchased the shop pretty much the next day! I’m incredibly happy and feel as though my life has done a full circle. I’m back where I belong!”

The shop is mainly focused on fresh flowers, online shopping, beautiful bouquets and floral arrangements of every description and, of course, wedding flowers. However, it also has a colourful array of indoor plants and pots and a range of unique gifts and gift hampers. Being fiercely anti-plastic, Caro likes to focus on natural products.
