Flowers and Balloons is a modest family owned and operated business in Islington Village, Etobicoke.
We are committed to providing the best quality flowers and balloons at competitive prices. To guarantee your floral arrangements are of high quality and always fresh, we stock our flowers weekly from the best suppliers and growers. To provide an assortment of arrangements, we get our supplies from Ecuador, Columbia and local growers. We maximize our stock from local growers as much as possible to maintain the lowest prices.
Our family wants you and your loved ones to enjoy the flowers and balloons you purchase from us, so we do our very best to ensure satisfaction.
Our florist Susie Kim, is an artist who embarked on the journey of creating stunning arrangements over 20 years ago.
In addition to studying to become a florist, she received personal training in painting from the established artist Sung Ja Chisholm. Her favourite form of artistic expression is to paint flowers, french gardens, bicycles and floral designs. She has had the great fortune to showcase over 50 of her paintings at an art exhibition in 2017 which was a realization of one of her life’s goals. She goes by the artist name Monique.
Susie started off years ago by proudly creating the floral arrangements for her children’s weddings and now offers her skills and services to our customers to help them celebrate, cherish and remember all of their life’s treasured occasions.
A small gallery of Monique's paintings can be viewed in the lower level of the store accessed from the side entrance. It may be locked, so please ask whoever is working at the front to show you there.
