Why Twenty Three? No, there is no heart wrenching, tears-inducing story behind the number; neither did I start out at age 23. It all began when I was working part time at a commercialized florist while schooling and after a year or so, a very close friend of mine encouraged me to step up and out to start my own. Hence, I left and began selling flowers on Carousell, sharing an account with the same friend who was selling her pre-loved items. We decided on Twenty Three as both our birth dates fall on the 23rd and it stuck with me till now.
Twenty Three Flowers. It holds the dream of a then 19-year-old girl of opening a florist-cum-cafe serving piping hot melon matcha latte while selling fresh blooms with the occasional sprinkle of weddings. But of course, a home-based one will have to do for the time being.
I enjoy talking to people and I'd love to find out more about your love stories - how you met, how he proposed, how she embarrassed herself, all the love under the sun! These will help create the perfect event/bouquet and have your friends saying "that was so them!" I’d love to be part of your tender moments and turn your dreams into reality – be it flowers or a surprise event!
With love, Xiao Rui
