I am the owner & creative director of Sophie's Flower Pedals.
My vision is to flood the streets of Vancouver with beautiful flowers and to give people the opportunity to build something with their hands that is both personal and unique; we offer a ‘build your own bouquet’ style concept on wheels- with our sweet bike cart as well as our new Flower Truck.
2 questions I'm asked every time I take my flower truck out into the city:
· Are they real? Yes all my flowers are fresh and very real!
· Why a Japanese mini truck? My love affair with all things Japanese …
I really do LOVE all things Japanese, for starters I’m 1/2 Japanese, my favorite city to visit is Kyoto, I'm studying ikebana (the Art of Japanese flower arranging), I had an obsession with my Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle not to mention my taste for sushi & sake. So, it really was an easy choice to transform a Japanese Mini Truck into my flower truck.
I have so many dreams for Sophie’s Flower Pedals and can’t wait to share them with Vancouver.
It’s a wonderful thing to dream for the future, but enjoying the present is ever-so-sweet, too.
Beautiful flowers and gorgeous arrangements! I've received both a Valentine's Day flower box and a lovely Mother's Day bouquet this year and they're some of the prettiest arrangements I've ever had. Plus, they last a long time! In my books -- nothing beats supporting a local momprenueur who has an eye for simple, yet sophisticated floral arrangements. ~Sarah Z.
As a Vancouver photographer I have used Sophie's Flower Pedals on multiple occasions for stylized portrait sessions, primarily showcasing their beautiful flower crowns. Tanya always does an amazing job! I love her work so much that I started ordering her flower boxes for my wedding shows and marketing events, they were perfect! I had so many compliments! The customer service I have had from this business is second to none. As a small business owner it is so nice to know that you can communicate your vision with someone and they listen, always delivering what you need. It is businesses like this that I want to be a part of because I am always inspired to deliver the best for my clients and expect the same from the companies I work with. Thank you Sophie's Flower Pedals for your amazing creations! ~Dawn Stenzel Photography
I absolutely love Sophie’s Flower Pedals! The bouquets are always gorgeous and fresh and they last much longer than any other flower arrangements I’ve ever had! Tanya, the owner, is so great too! It’s apparent how much she cares about her customers and she even delivers! I highly recommend buying flowers from her for any occasion, you’ll definitely be happy with what you get! ~Journey Henkart
