Paul Girling, The Owner

Paul Girling - Toronto Florist & plant lover

Paul Girling, owner and head designer at Bloom the Flower Company, has always had an interest in flowers and plants. While he holds a degree in music from the University of Western Ontario, Paul also has spent much of his time studying rare flowers and unusual plants.

While working in a law firm, Paul realized quite early on about the benefits of flowers. When a legal assistant would have a bad day, Paul would run down to a flower shop, pick up a few stems and a bud vase, and would leave a little arrangement on their desks in hopes of brightening their day. The flowers worked wonders, and those little personal touches are things people remember, even some 10 years after they occurred.

After deciding that a law firm was not the place for Paul, he moved over to event planning where he was responsible for planning and executing large scale events  (once having 5 events going on in the same building at the same time!)  During his time as an event planner, clients would ask him if he could design and arrange the flowers for their event. After a few of these events, Paul was repeatedly told he should consider going into the flower business. It was a suggestion that he took to heart, and now has been arranging flowers for over a decade.

Trained at the Canadian Institute of Floral Design, Paul was lucky enough to receive a job offer while still in school, and after a few years of working with the previous owner of Bloom the Flower Company, Paul had the opportunity to purchase the store. It was the easiest and best decision he has made.

Finally having a job that he loves, Paul believes that finding your passion and following your dreams is the best way to lead a meaningful and enjoyable life. Of course, having a few flowers in the home also does help to brighten your spirits.
