MEET THE TEAM:
Get to know some of our dynamic Ellermann family.
Diane, Founder & Creative Director
Most likely to be found…Travelling around Asia, working on exciting projects or finding new ideas and inspirations. When I’m in Hong Kong, you’ll find me brainstorming with my team (most likely with a piece of chocolate and a coffee in my hand) or working on floral proposals and designs.
Favourite flower… It’s like naming a favourite child – it would break both mine and their heart! But if I’d have to pick (what a bad mother!) I’d say I really admire Iris. I find they hold their heads up with pride and have an almost regal appearance while remaining humble, never fighting for attention.
Favourite Ellermann moment… Every time I hear our team members talk passionately about Ellermann and how it feels like a family and how working here inspires and fulfils them. It makes me very happy and proud.
Maggie, Principal Florist
Favourite part of my job… I love every part of my job, but if I really have to pick one part, I would say it’s when I’m working on a flower arrangement. That's when I feel a true sense of calmness within myself.
Favourite flower… All flowers are my friend! I have a different favourite for every occasion or gifting purpose.
Favourite flower moment… Way back when Ellermann first started, Diane, myself and a group of our team worked our first event with over 100 tables. It's just a really memorable, happy memory!
Last time I gave someone flowers…I can’t remember! Rather than gifting flowers, I am usually the one who receives them! :)

Favourite flower… Iris because it always reminds me of my best friend of the same name!
Did you know… I am a Sentō (Japanese public bathhouse)addict. I always have a small towel and shower gel ready in my bag when travelling to Japan so I can pop in any random bathhouse around the city and enjoy!
Last time I gave someone flowers… My mum. I gave her a bunch of purple flowers on a random Friday. I just wanted to surprise her and it worked perfectly.
Flora, Floral Manager
