THORN & thistle is a creative endeavour by Alexandra Powell and Nicole Ingram, both natives of Victoria, British Columbia. Alexandra and Nicole strive to sculpt floral arrangements that reflect a vintage charm and add a new dimension to traditional floristry. They both grew up with an appreciation and love for flowers, which genuinely shows in their work. Alexandra learned about ikebana (the Japanese art of flower arrangements) and gardening from her mother, whereas Nicole worked on her grandmother’s flower farm during the summer as a child. In 2013, Alexandra and Nicole made their dreams of working with flowers a reality by opening THORN & thistle. They source from local growers and believe in sustainability.
The business offers delivery, setup, and cleanup. Various floral designs are available for weddings, including bouquets, boutonnieres, and head wreaths.
THORN & thistle also offers a unique selection of gifts, vintage and artisanal goods, books, and plants.

Great service and beautiful flowers
The ladies at Thorn and Thistle were amazing and so easy to deal with! The 'a la carte' option was so helpful as I was working on a budget and was flexible about the flowers that would be used. I didn't need much more than just personal flowers for the wedding party and this made it so easy to just pick what I needed for a reasonable price. They took our pinterest inspiration and made us some beautiful bouquets, boutonnieres, flower crowns, and aisle arrangements that even lasted a journey up island for the wedding!
