cool green and shady This #flowermonday marked a first for us—it’s the first time driftwood has made (an artfully placed) appearance in one of our bouquets! This unique arrangement is the work of
Toronto florist Cool Green and Shady. It’s the perfect transitional bouquet—the pink roses nod back to summer, but the berries and thistles are giving us major fall vibes. Ready to meet the mind behind this creation? Read on to hear more from the team at
Cool Green and Shady!

What was the inspiration behind this arrangement? We wanted to showcase an earthy element arrangement while hinting that fall is in the air.
What are you looking forward to about fall? We love the textures of flowers, berries, grasses and leaves that we have available to work with in the fall! It’s so much fun to change our designs with the seasons, and in the fall we focus on making florals that are warm and comforting.
Any Thanksgiving floral table decoration tips? We are known for our fresh pumpkin centrepieces! We take pie pumpkins and hollow them out, and fill them with our tight lush florals. They are perfect for the Thanksgiving table and a family tradition for many of our customers.
What are the best flowers to buy in the autumn? Sunflowers, dahlias, hydrangea, cabbage, thistle, berries and grasses.
Tell us a bit more about the business! Amber, the owner started working at a flower shop in high school. She knew that flowers were her life right away. And not too long after finishing school she started
Cool Green & Shady, which is already 13 years ago! The best part of our business is the variety. We have a lovely retail and online store where we get to make floral arrangements for all of life’s special occasions. We deliver from our Beach location to the entire GTA daily. That said, our favourite is wedding work. We love helping couples make their weddings beautiful!
