From humble beginnings to designer extraordinaire! With Charlene's years of experience in a corporate, busy industry, she was no stranger to hard work, pressure and deadlines. In 2007, Charlene was looking for an exciting new challenge and an opportunity to open her own business. With a keen interest and talent for interior design, coupled with her love for the outdoors and nature, Oopsie Daisy Flowers was born.
10 years later, Oopsie Daisy Flowers celebrates as the leader in Floral Design in South Africa, servicing high profile celebrities, luxury brands and bespoke events. She is passionate about her company and her team and always says that when looking for the right staff, she employs character and integrity over experience. Charlene believes in empowerment and sharing her skills.
Charlene has been married since 2009 and refers to her hubby as a God sent and their children are three lovable dogs and a bossy cat.
She has a strong sense of family and comes from a very close knit unit. Charlene says South Africa runs through her veins, from visiting her favourite place, The Kruger, to finding time to see wildlife as she has a deep love for animals. Charlene builds strong relationships with her clients and suppliers and her greatest satisfaction is a satisfied corporate client and seeing a happy Bride and Groom have the perfect day.
