Founder of Flower Nation
I’m Katharina – florist, business owner, mum of two humans, nine chickens and several foster cats. Located in Perth (SoR),
Flower Nation grew from the seeds of my passion for sustainability, textures and weddings, and has blossomed into a multi-award winning business since it was first founded in 2011.
I specialise in floral styling that is not only gorgeous, but also ethical, eco-friendly and efficient.
The Flower Nation difference is that I do not simply provide flowers, but complete table and venue styling so that you don’t have to worry about multiple vendors, organising deliveries and excess costs — instead, you can relax and enjoy your day! I proudly offer Perth’s largest range of rental preserved florals through my revolutionary Real Flowers for Hire option, which is my solution to the problem of having to choose between beauty, affordability and sustainability.
Flower Nation is your one-stop destination for sustainable floristry services in Perth, offering everything from flowers, to styling, and even education. I love to teach and when I’m not busy setting up dreamy events, I run Workshops to share my dried and preserved floral arrangement techniques.
Check out my website gallery, Facebook page and Instagram account to view pictures of my offerings – if you have an upcoming event and like what you see, then I would love to chat about making your vision a reality!
My work has been recognised by the Australian Bridal Industry Academy (ABIA) as well as the Wedding Industry Awards in recent years (see below), so you can rest assured you are in experienced hands when you book Flower Nation.

Sustainable Florals for Beautiful Events
The Flower Nation philosophy is that beauty can be found ethically, sustainably and affordably.
Coming from a traditional floristry background and having worked mainly with fresh flowers for years, I know first-hand how much wastage can be involved in styling events with fresh blooms.
Our commitment to sustainability, dedication to our clients, and passion for gorgeous floral styling has led to a unique offering on the Perth event scene: a floristry business that provides everything you need to style your events, including our revolutionary Real Flowers for Hire range of preserved blooms!
You can enjoy the beauty of real flowers without worrying about seasonal availability, shortages, blooms that might wilt over the course of your event, or not last should you need to reschedule – all while saving on material and labour costs.
Your peace of mind is guaranteed when you book Flower Nation florals because we not only provide flowers, but also award-winning event styling services.
While our commitment to sustainability has shifted our focus to our Real Flowers for Hire range of preserved florals, bespoke fresh floral styling is still available on its own or to mix and match with our Hire Range.
Flower Nation arrangements incorporate florals and foliage from all around the world – including Japan, South East Asia, New Zealand, Ecuador and Kenya – but centre heavily on the flora of my adopted home: Australia. Part of my commitment to sustainable floristry is buying locally whenever possible, including from a lovely couple in the Wheatbelt!
If you are looking for supremely beautiful styling for your event without compromising on your ethics and blowing out your budget, you’ve come to the right place.
I can’t recommend Katharina enough. She did our wedding flowers and exceeded our expectations with her talent. Everything was just beautiful – the church, the bouquets, the corsages, the bridal table and hanging installation. She even managed to do all this and come in under budget.
Katharina is very well organised, meeting multiple times to make sure she understands what you want.
We honestly can’t thank her enough for how beautiful everything turned out.
Katharina created stunning bouquets and table decorations for our wedding. She made everything so easy and we could not have been happier. She knew the venue, made recommendations to ensure the flowers could be reused between the ceremony and reception and was full of commonsense advice. All of the guests commented on how beautiful they were.

Thank you so much for the beautiful job you did with the flowers! I absolutely loved them (so much so that I kept my bouquet rather than follow the tradition of giving it away) and everyone commented on how spectacular they were!
You did an amazing job and I will recommend you to friends and family! Even the cake lady commented on how she’d set up at many weddings but the flowers and presentation was the nicest she had seen. Thanks again.
