hello!

My name is Patricia Durkin and I am the owner and designer at PD Florals.

I am a one woman show, creating naturally tailored designs for weddings and events in South Western Ontario.

I design out of a studio at location very close to my heart, the family farm I grew up on outside of Langton Ontario "Spearit Farms". 

Floral design wasn't something I considered doing until my second year of horticulture school at Niagara College. I took an intro design course and fell in love with the art. After graduating with a Horticulture Technician Diploma, I decided to pursue floral design and enrolled in a one year course at Seneca College, Toronto. 

After Graduating, I moved back to my home town and worked in a small retail floral shop for three years.

Needing to advance my skills I decided I wanted to do something bigger!! I was hired for a floral design position downtown Toronto at large floral event studio. There I gained skills in managing a warehouse, purchasing hardgoods and florals, managing a production team of designers and assembling large events in some of the most prestigious hotels and event spaces in the city. 

After being in the city for five years, it was time for me to return back to my roots in Norfolk County and thats when I became PD Florals.
