Once Upon a Time was created in 2014 by professional gardener and illustrator Tracey Spokes, whose interest and passion for flowers started when she was a little girl and would lie on the garden path watching her Dad grow his sweet peas, roses and runner beans whilst drawing pictures of flowers, fairies and castles.
Tracey has years of experience working in Stately homes and English Country gardens, growing and arranging beautiful flowers for weddings, banquets and balls during the day and illustrating stories for children’s books during the evening. Her magical creative quality shines through in her arrangements. Whether it is a small intimate gathering of friends at home or a grand theatrical affair, the flowers will always be beautiful, original and yours. Every arrangement is created individually for each and every event, carefully considering the occasion, season, style and your floral wish list.
Although based on the Leicestershire/Northamptonshire border, Once Upon A Time are more than happy to arrange your flowers wherever your story takes you (… weddings and parties in Tuscany always welcome).
It truly doesn’t matter if you want simple posies or extravagant bunches, if you have plenty of ideas or just the one, Once Upon a Time will listen to your plans and create truly magical arrangements just for you.
