You know I love a talented florist and the lovely Roberta of Green & Bloom has been a bit of a fixture on Polka Dot Bride for as long as I can remember (we even featured her gorgeous wedding!). We’ve done giveaways, and featured so much of Roberta’s beautiful work, it’s incredibly innovative, fresh and full of life. Seeing Roberta’s work is always a beautiful breath of fresh air. It always struck me that Roberta was so kind, creative and supportive of Polka Dot Bride and it hasn’t stopped, so I am more than thrilled to introduce you to this talented Brisbane florist as this week’s vendor of the week!
We asked Roberta of Green & Bloom five questions in five minutes –
What is your favourite after five drink?
Orange and Galliano or an old fashioned Pimms .
Your favourite weekend getaway?
Somewhere in the country. So much to love about Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Byron Bay countryside or Stanthorpe. I’m a fan of finding new places to stay any chance we get to go away. I have a soft spot for refurbished homesteads, and rolling pastures of grass.

What can we find you eating for breakfast on a Sunday morning?
If I have no weddings to pack down you will find me enjoying blueberry pancakes with ricotta and maple syrup in the garden with my family. Or when zucchini’s are in season in our kitchen garden – making zucchini fritters with bacon, ricotta and tomato relish.
Your favourite wedding story?
Each wedding has so many stories behind it, both with how our couples met, and their travels together. Its hard to pick just one. Again we have a soft spot for country weddings.
