Thorn by Thorn Ready made or customised dried floral bouquets based in Auckland, New Zealand �

Operating as usual

17/11/2021

ANNOUNCEMENT:

Thorn by Thorn will be taking a break indefinitely from all custom orders (including wedding orders). We will be available for wholesale orders only (this means orders of 10 or more minis) and stocking the stores that currently stock our bouquets/minis. This means you don’t have to worry! You can still continue to purchase our flowers from the stores listed in our bio! NOTE: for all wedding orders booked in for 2022, we will still be doing your wedding florals as promised.

As explained in the video, we started this business purely for fun (and while we were still students). Over the past year and a half we have seen the business grow bigger than we anticipated and while we are so grateful for all the orders, our mental and physical health has taken a hit and we’ve been really trying to prioritise our health, careers and family lives over the past few months. We’ve found that the efforts going into this business have been decreasing which isn’t fair to you all. While we did consider hiring more staff in addition to our lovely team now, we’ve decided to take this much needed break before we make any long term decisions.

We are so thankful for all the support we have received to date and really hope that you all will continue to support us by purchasing our products in our stockists’ stores. We are still replying to DMs and emails, so if you ever have a question please don’t hesitate to drop us a message!

Love,
Carmen & Sally

It’s been over a month since I last posted on here! 😬 how are we all?

Just popping in to let you know there will be a re-stock of bouquets at Gloria Jeans Lorne st this week so if you’re grabbing yourself a coffee, grab a bouquet too! We’ve made all the bouquets a bit more affordable this time round as we know this pandemic has been tough on a lot of people but we still want you to be able to treat yourself and your loved ones! ✨

Two more weeks until we can hopefully have some takeaways Auckland! How are we all doing?
To be real with you guys, I’ve been feeling so unmotivated to do my day job (which has also been turning into an all-day job with working from home and being bad at setting boundaries!) Level 4 also means the rest of the TbyT team can’t come round to the studio (which is at my house) so your orders are being fulfilled by a one man team currently 😬

As always, still so grateful for the orders coming through even in lockdown and for your continued support. Hope you guys are keeping safe and well! 🤍✨

Owning a small business is hard.

The constant feeling that you could and should be doing more to grow your business, the need to wear all the different hats - accountant, courier, IT, HR 😂, the time lost with family and friends because you’re too busy fulfilling orders, balancing a full time job and speeding home to meet with customers afterwards and the guilt you feel when taking a night off because you could be thinking up new ideas and doing more!

Can anybody else relate? This is not meant to be a whiney, complaining post, but perhaps a message to everyone else feeling the same lately. To everyone who is feeling a bit uninspired or just plain run down, I’m with you. Let’s all take a breather and remember the reason we started on this journey in the first place. 🧡
