ailee Weil first starting working for Leo at Willow Haven Flower shop when she was 11. In high school Kailee worked at Willow Haven doing whatever jobs she could to be a part of the shop. Leo sent Kailee to flower school in Holland to train and when she came back she worked at Willow Haven before moving to Vancouver to work in a North Vancouver flower shop.
When Leo announced that he would be selling Willow Haven to pursue opening a fashion store Kailee bought the business.
Kailee just opened the doors to her new Willow Flower Company location right beside Rapunzel's hair salon in Canmore. I stopped by the shop today to find Kailee busy assembling centre pieces for events and took a few quick photos to give you a sense of her beautiful new space.
You have to go check it out. I'm really excited about it.
Kailee at work assembling centre pieces.
Kailee had lots of great and creative containers for centrepieces.
I am thrilled to FINALLY see airplants available in the mountains. I fell in love with them in Vancouver when I visited so I was excited to see that Kailee is now carrying them at Willow Flower Company. I have one hanging in my window and would love a collection like this. They are so beautiful and really really easy maintenance.
Willow Flower Company also has a great selection of cards from one of my favourite shops in Vancouver, The Regional Assembly of Text. So nice to have some great cards in town.
Congratulations to you Kailee on your beautiful new space!!! You can find Leo in the same spot on main street in Canmore where he has now opened Vida fashion.
