Sarah Burnell is the creative force of Flourish & Knot, where she offers a fresh take on floral design. Montreal wedding florist Sarah creates eye-catching florals for events, while incorporating sustainable and eco-friendly design practices. With a penchant for designs that allow the flowers to flow and move naturally, Sarah uses locally-grown blooms and greenery as much as possible. Her career as a music educator influences her work at Flourish & Knot, where she also offers floral arranging workshops and parties.
In 2018, Sarah expanded her home garden, with an eye towards incorporating her own cut flowers in her event work! Sarah is a champion for the local flower movement, and was involved in the inaugural Canadian Flowers Week, presenting a workshop using 100% locally-grown blooms and foliage, and using eco-friendly design mechanics.
In November 2018, Sarah was one of six creatives chosen to design the Christmas decor of a Victorian heritage home in Vankleek Hill, Ontario. Sarah’s design echoed the elegant simplicity of the home, with handmade evergreen garlands, silk ribbons, and beautiful vintage touches throughout.
Flourish & Knot can work within a range of budgets to create beautiful, custom florals to suit your needs. Learn more about Flourish & Knot’s services.
When she isn’t working with flowers, Sarah is busy teaching music, singing in various vocal ensembles, gardening, and spending time with her family.
Here’s what people are saying about Sarah’s innovative floral designs:
“Sarah was an absolute pleasure to work with. She ordered the flowers for our reception and created our beautiful bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages for our entire bridal party – IN TWO WEEKS. In addition, she delivered them to a remote area since we were getting married pretty far from Montreal. Not too sure what I would have done without her and her creative talent. And a great bonus is that she works with local farms to get her flowers, so they are incredibly fresh and vibrant!! Definitely recommend her if you’re looking for a florist for your wedding.” – Judith D. (Toronto, ON) (See this review on Facebook)

“Your workshop was fun and educational! I always thought I was hopeless at arranging flowers!” – Mary T. (Beaconsfield, QC)
“Thank you so much for the beautiful arrangement. My mother was thrilled and your ingenious packaging solution helped to get the flowers from Montreal to Ottawa without incident. Would certainly purchase again!” Annie D. (Montreal, QC) (See this review and picture on Facebook!)
