Poise and Presents

Biographical Info

Hello my name is Sharon Kerr and I work from home in Glengormley creating faux floral gift arrangements, my business is called Poise and Presents. Although my business operates online from Facebook and Instagram, I don’t operate from commercial premises but I have collection points within the Newtownabbey and Greater Belfast areas. My most popular arrangements to date have been my unique bespoke wrist corsages and button holes. Wrist corsages are primarily but not exclusively linked to school formals. I create wrist corsages for various occasions such as to compliment your outfit if attending a wedding, gala dinner dance, day at the races, fashion show, to compliment your gown if you are off on a cruise and for your bridesmaids. I like to create pieces of art that you can wear to compliment and not overpower your outfit of choice. Attention to detail is paramount to me and I won’t compromise on quality. Attention to detail is something customers have complimented me on and has been one of the unique selling points that have brought me repeat business and recommendation. When creating button holes and ladies spray I like to create something unique and bespoke that can be used time and time again. You can view a small selection of my corsages at The Sassy Boutique located on the Lisburn Road in Belfast, The Dainty Doll Boutique & Balmoral Dress Hire located on the Upper Lisburn Road in Belfast, the Bridal Elegance Boutique located in Larne and at the Urban Hair Company Salon located here in Glengormley.

Besides the aforementioned arrangements, I like to create gift arrangements that the recipient will remember you and the occasion for. One idea that I had was to create unique faux flower arrangements incorporating vintage handbags. The benefit to this arrangement is a ‘one-off’ statement piece that can be a vocal point in the home and a conversation starter .

Although my wedding was over 20 years ago, I remember how expensive wedding cakes were and indeed are today. It takes great skill to create the perfect wedding cake and the remuneration is justified, but not all couples can afford to purchase such beautiful cakes. For that reason, I wanted to create beautiful dummy cake tiers that are affordable and help couples have some of the vow factor their tight budget cannot stretch to.

 

Since I started Poise and Presents I’ve had a lot of enquiries for bridal/wedding items and this is something I’m working on over the coming months. I have created a couple of faux flower hair pieces and a bridal bouquet all of which have brought great feedback.

 

 

There are two things that are central to my business; attention to detail and great customer service, I’m pleased to say that those are 2 key comments from my customers. I am self-taught in what I do, but I’m pleased to say that some of that artistic flair is genetic with both my maternal and paternal families having worked in creative industries for generations. I do know my limitations and I won’t over promise and under deliver, if I cannot create for you what you would like I’ll certainly do my best to help you find someone who will. If you’d like a little inspiration, take time with a cup of tea/coffee and browse through the photo gallery on my Facebook page I hope you enjoy.

Biographical Info

I trained in floristry over 8yrs age here in Ireland but always just did flowers for family and friends given that I had a ‘job’ working in sales/marketing. I started my career with Coca Cola in a merchandising role and progressed through the sales ranks to account manager responsible for 70% of the volume going through the channel.

When I turned 30 I moved to Yellow Pages as a sales consultant and stayed with Yell for 10 years during which time I had 4 children. After taking voluntary redundancy I did a spell at Greer Publications managing the Ulster Grocer magazine covering maternity leave, then I went to U105 as a sales consultant full time although I found the full time impossible with a husband working in Dublin and 4 young children.

After U105 I worked part time in a number of sales/marketing/training roles but nothing really made my heart sing. After my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer in February this year I decided to take my love for flowers to the next level. I decided to set up a studio at the house and in June/July I set up Lily Rose Floral Designs.

My daughter is Lily Rose hence the name and it’s very much a family affair – this Christmas the children helped with Fayres donning their uniforms and my youngest son happily wears his Lily Rose Floral Designs coat to school daily. Into the mix we recently added a pup – Bella so I negotiate a new business, 4 children, house, school, cat and a new pup

In terms of the business I do all things floral and this Christmas have decorated homes and businesses which is an area I would like to build

I’m a Florist.

I’ve been a florist for over 30years, {scary}
I love flowers, plants, animals anything to do with nature.
I have done the shop thing, the corporate thing and now all I do is weddings, {this keeps me busy}
My job is to use flowers, foliage, plants, twigs, moss etc, whatever I can get my hands on to help define your wedding look.

I have worked in most wedding venues around the north west, near and far, but as they say,

“ Have van, will travel”

I am passionate about only using top quality flowers and foliage, which I source from around the world and where possible I use locally grown.

For a once in a lifetime event, only the best will do!

From your first contact, {just a wee informal chat} I can supply you with an itemised estimated for what you require. Once we have discussed in more detail all that you would like I again will provide an itemised quote, and if you are happy to proceed then you pay the deposit to secure the date.
