Howdy! I’m Nicola Mehio, owner of Flora Special Occasion (FSO Events for short!). Thank you for visiting my site, here is a little about me…
I have been in the industry since 2009, after qualifying as a florist and balloon decorator I promptly started up business and haven’t looked back. My studio is based in Wooburn Moor High Wycombe on a lovely farm where I produce all my bespoke floral and balloon designs for weddings, special events and corporate functions.
My love of design started when I attended Art & Fashion college, which honed my skills and passion for all things beautiful, before eventually branching out into floristry and balloon artistry. I attended Hillingdon adult education college where I gained my National Diploma in Floristry, following this I worked in my tutor’s florist shop in Hayes for a year.
Although it’s been a long journey getting to where I am now, I have loved and continue to love every second of my ‘not so ordinary’ job. From meeting excited couples talking about their wedding flowers, to having fun decorating balloons for a child’s birthday party, I wouldn’t change any of it.
I continue to learn new trends and skills by attending regular professional trade courses, and by constantly researching and having an active interest in floral and balloon design.
