La Petite Fleur Story

La Petite Fleur, a blossoming venture, was nurtured by our visionary founder, Jess. For over 15 years, Jess endured the plight of flower allergies, an affliction that kept her distanced from the very beauty she longed for. On a poignant Mother's Day, her loving husband, aware of her pollen sensitivity, reluctantly abandoned the idea of gifting her flowers. Yet, Jess, like any woman, yearned for the heartfelt appreciation symbolized by a token of love.

Determined to bridge the gap between her allergic reactions and her love for flowers, Jess embarked on a profound journey of exploration and discovery. It was during this quest that she encountered the world of Preserved Flowers, captivating her like a newborn mesmerized by the enchantment of light. Intrigued, she delved into extensive research to learn where and how to obtain these wondrous blooms.

To her dismay, Jess found a lack of high-quality preserved flowers in Canada. Despite this setback, she sought out the unparalleled preserved flower technology and skills found in Japan. Through her remarkable tenacity, Jess established contact with her mentor, Moon, a distinguished student of the revered Great Master of Japan Ange Preserved Flower Design INT Association. Their shared language background fostered a profound connection as Jess began her arduous journey, taking early 4:30 am courses overseas to master this ancient art form.

Armed with her interior design background and the inspiration derived from her newfound expertise, Jess birthed her latest creation: La Petite Fleur. From that transformative moment onward, her vision to create beauty and bring joy to allergy sufferers began to materialize. Jess weathered numerous hardships in her life, including the untimely loss of her parents, yet her unwavering determination transformed adversity into strength.

Each piece of floral art crafted by Jess and her team at La Petite Fleur is infused with love and blessings. With unyielding devotion, Jess endeavors to create life-changing gift experiences, utilizing flowers as vessels of happiness, appreciation, empathy, and love. Her resolute mission is to transcend the limitations of allergies and spread the boundless beauty of nature to all.

As La Petite Fleur continues to flourish under Jess' nurturing care, it serves as a testament to her unwavering spirit, resilience, and her commitment to making a difference. With every delicate petal meticulously arranged, Jess redefines the essence of floral artistry, transforming ordinary moments into extraordinary memories.

Preserved Flower Story

According to Legend, there was a deeply in love couple who were about to split up due to a war breakout. The boy must go to war for his hometown. But they both knew that the chance to survive this war is slim. The poor little couple had to say their farewell in tears. Right before he left, the boy picked a stem of rose from the garden and gave to his girl. Then he told her, “When the last petal of this rose fell, it would time for you to forget about me and more on.”
The girl was buried in tears as she put the rose in a vase with water. She then prayed to God everyday sincerely for his safe return.
Days have gone by and only terrible news had come back. But there was still no news for her boy. The rose slowly lost its moisture, color and was no longer pretty and fresh. The fragrance was fading and the rose was dying. However, the surprising thing was that none of the rose pedals had fallen off.
Finally in the following dawn, the boy, limping in his scars, exhausted but excited, came back in front of the girl in his triumph. As a result, the story of the lovers being favored by the god of luck passed down.

Preserved Flower Techniques

“That’s the reason I don’t buy flowers for her”, a boy said once, “because they only last a week or so and that gets costly every time I buy flowers for her.”
We’ve heard this many times from the boys and husbands and even from anyone who enjoys fresh flowers. The traditional way of cut flowers is not only wasteful, it’s also harmful for the environment and sometimes creates uncontrollable allergies for the receivers. But what if you could buy cut flowers that last for years and their pollens are removed?
Yes, you can indeed. As this has become a concern for many, the technique of preserving flowers was born in France about 30 years ago and embraced even further in Japan. This innovation is not only eco-friendly and also beautiful to look at as if they were fresh.
At La Petite Fleur, you also get a chance to encounter the floral arrangement of preserved flowers as a relaxing and therapeutic experience. And after all, you still get to keep your floral creation which can last over 2-3 years.
