ABOUT MARA @ FRANGIPANI
I spent most of my life in Italy. Trieste is the capital of the county of Friuli, Venezia Giulia, a town that encompasses both sea and mountains. There, I built my experience of working with flowers at Churches, Villas, Parks and restaurants using special frameworks to personalize my works.
Frangipani Flowers & Gifts is the realization of a dream. Flowers and plants have always being an important part of my life. I came across the different ways to arrange flowers in my homeland and my new home here and decided to combine the two realities through something artistic. That is what led to the creation of Frangipani Flowers & Gifts.
The personalized approach I adopt focuses on bringing my client's visions into reality. The intention of Frangipani is that the flower designer and the customer can share a thought that is then brought to life by the designer, whether you love a look that's elegant and natural, chic and modern, or rustic and organic.
All the bouquets and plants that have the signature of Frangipani Flowers & Gifts are hand delivered. We offer to send you a photo of the bouquet before it leaves our workshop.
My aspiration is to make purchasing plants and flowers an easy, exciting, and informative process, so that my customers can experience the same joy we have in working with Nature.
The flower reflects things to which we all aspire: friendship and hospitality. The Frangipani or Plumeria, also known as Pomelia, is a shrub whose sweet-smelling white flower, crowded the coastal areas of Sicily. It made early appearances in small bunches carried by the noblewomen of Palermo in the 18th century. The Botanic Garden of Palermo in Sicily, still retains its oldest specimens.
The variety "Palermo" features white flowers and has the insistent smell of vanilla, cinnamon and rose. It is characterized by rounded petals, partly overlapping, almost forming a closed circle, and yellow streaks, sometimes pink, of varying intensity.Polynesians use the Frangipani in their welcoming necklaces as a symbol of immortality and good omen.
