A Little About Laurel
While living in Halifax, Laurel Munro landed a job at the local florist’s shop. Little did she know that this would lead her to discover her life long passion and give her the confidence she needed to become a successful and talented florist. The time spent working at this shop and seeing how things were done, Laurel knew she could take her new found passion and transform it into a successful business.
As well as being the owner, Laurel is also the lead florist at Mint. When asked about what her other passions were, she said gardening! Beautiful flora and fauna makes Laurel’s heart race with happiness. Even when she’s not in the shop helping bride-to-be’s imagine their perfect bouquet for their wedding day, you can find her in the garden with her little dog, Abby. Her favorite flower is the magnificent Dahlia.
Laurel has now been in the floral business for 10 years. The Downtown Whitby (108 Dundas St. W.) location is the newest and second location of Mint Floral Co. Thank you Laurel for bring the creative and modern florals to the GTA!
Mint Floral Co. delivers to Whitby, Oshawa, Brooklin, Courtice, Bowmanville, Ajax and Pickering.

Only the Best for Your Wedding Day
Laurel has hundreds of stunning and successful weddings under her belt, it’s what she specializes in. You don’t have to travel far to get the modern and unique bouquet you have always dreamed to be a part of your wedding. Mint Floral Co. is for the less than traditional bride who isn’t caught up in following the latest trends. Mint Floral Co. has a style all their own, a relaxed natural garden gathered look that will make every lady in your life swoon. Greenery is becoming a very popular addition to the modern bride’s bouquet. Laurel loves this new emphasis because it enhances the loose, organic look that Mint likes to create. “Greens can be just as beautiful as flowers and are not necessarily ‘filler’!” noted Laurel.
Choosing a florist that you can trust is crucial. The best way to find a florist is talking with friends and family. If your close ones speak highly of their experience than you know it’s the best place to start. You also want to be aware that using in season flowers are important. They are more available and it means they are locally grown. Laurel says “We are sure to advise each bride who books with us that there are NO guarantees for requested flowers. Most brides don’t realize that they should focus less on specific types of flowers and more on the colour scheme. Trust your florist to use the best available flowers for your budget.”
Have a clear and concise vision for the look you want at your wedding before sitting down for a consultation. Mint Floral Co. wants to have all the info from you so that you will be nothing but overjoyed at the outcome. Come with defining words like romantic, feminine or natural and inspiration photos so that the communication between you and the designers is rock solid.
