Petal To The Metal Floral Design first came to life with our first shop opening in Abbotsford Victoria in 2009.
Founder, Camilo Undurraga who has a background of Art and Design was looking for a city presence and to immerse himself in the music, design and arts culture, hence the name, which reflects his love of music and design.
Now based back on the Peninsula, I came on board in 2015, after 15 years of working as a Marketing Coordinator. I saw the potential and passion Camilo had for Petal To The Metal Floral Design so we made a leap of faith and I joined him in the business. Living and working together can be a challenge but with the same passion for the business, our clients and life, I don’t think we’d have it any other way.
No longer in the retail side of floristry, Petal To The Metal Floral Design focuses on Weddings, Corporate and Event Floral Design.
We have been the in-house florist to one of Australia’s most prestigious and multi award winning wineries, Port Phillip Estate since it’s opening in 2009.
Other clients also include Geoffrey Rush, James and David Reyne, Brooke Satchwell, Wally Debacker (Goyte), Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser, Baillieu Family, Portsea Hotel, Flinders Hotel, R.T Edgar Real Estate, Hvezda Hair & Beauty, Jeep, Two Birds Talking and Flinders Art show just to name a few.
One of our most important aspects is to have our clients trust. Whether it is a small intimate wedding to a big gala event we put the same dedication and importance on our creations.
Camilo prides himself on creating arrangements that stand out, whilst still focussing on balance and the placement of flowers in his designs. He certainly won’t shy away from pushing the boundaries of floral design whenever the opportunity arises.
We would love to hear from you and work together to create memorable arrangements for your special day or event.
