The Green Door Florist is located in Clontarf, Dublin. The shop is hard to miss and will usually have a beautiful floral display outside. It is one of the only truly unique flower shops in Dublin. Read on below to find out more about Lilla's extensive experience as a Dublin florist and her passion for infusing originality into her arrangements.

Meet Lilla, the owner of green door florist

My name is Lilla. I worked in Green Door for seven years and in 2013, I bought this tiny florist shop for myself. Owning my own business is a dream come true for me and I have enjoyed every minute since. I have had the opportunity to bring my own sense of style and my floristry training to fruition and I am having a fantastic time doing it! My passion for floristry started years ago as a small child whilst watching my grandmother in her garden. She loved her flowers and plants and would spend hours tending to them. Her simple style has left me drawn to earthy natural textures and colours with a continental feel.

At the time one of her favourites was a near black tulip which was rare then but common now. I was amazed at the combinations and contrasts you could get from nature and this started me on my floristry journey.

Black TulipI studied horticulture and specialised in floristry loving that exciting mix of nature and design.

There’s always something new arriving in the flower world, and I regularly attend floral design classes, learning new trends and skills.

My passion from my Granny’s garden is still as strong today as ever, and I hope you enjoy reading about the next steps of the journey and coming with me on it.

Green Door Florist is the home of the lonely bouquet in Ireland and also of the second chances idea.

Lonely Bouquet

The Lonely Bouquet idea is fantastic! Sometimes we enjoy spreading smiles and showing the love throughout the year. On random days from time to time, we deliver flowers all over the city in small decorative tins. We leave them in assorted public spots with a note telling the person who finds our Lonely Bouquet to take it away and give it a good home. This always gets a good reaction. See more and our special guest appearance on TV3 at International Lonely Bouquet Day.

Second Chances

This idea came to me on a plane! A pal of mine rescues animals of all types particularly horses. It struck me, that in my business, so many flowers don’t make the grade. They are rejected.

When looking for the perfect arrangement or bouquet, this is understandable, but what a waste!

We decided to give away flowers not quite up to the mark in exchange for a voluntary donation at the discretion of the customer to go to the animal rescue charity and help horses who have also been rejected.

Too old, a little lame etc… See more about this idea at Second Chances

Not only did Lilla go out of the way to call me when I couldn't get through to the shop, but she also redelivered the flowers when I unknowingly supplied an incorrect address.
