About Me

M Hi my name is Mel Githens, and I am a qualified Cert III florist. I am the owner of “Flowers by Melly B”. My story is not like many florists. Several years ago, after a life changing event, I decided to leave my profession as a registered nurse, and study to become a florist. With the support of my gorgeous husband, family and friends, I have now achieved my dream and have now opened my own flower, succulent, and hand made flower and foliage gift business, working from a home studio.

L I am also a mother of two gorgeous children, (son and daughter). My daughter is also very creative, and enjoys being mummies flower assistant. She now dreams of becoming a florist when “she grows up”! She is the creator of our gorgeous pink flower on our logo!


The name “Melly B”

B The name Melly was created due to my childhood nickname from my best friend Leah (since we were thirteen), we still remain besties! And the “B” evolved due to Melissa meaning “honey bee” in Greek.   And now here I am!! Enjoying every step of the way, feeling re energised, youthful and enjoying the creative side I have hidden for many years.
