It all started when...
Two long time friends, Emily and Liana decided to team up to provide an affordable event service. Whether it be floral arrangements or event design, our focus is to create a look and feel that is tailored to your specific needs.
Liana and Emily both have an extensive background in home design and fine art and have always promoted "shop local" and support Ontario farmers. Liana currently lives on a rural property in Hamilton where a large part of the business focuses on growing sustainable and seasonal plants to add to their arrangements. Emily is constantly researching and developing new ways to reduce our carbon footprint as well as alternative options for our business practices.
Burlap and Lace is here to help make your visions come to life. Come with a few simple inspirations that need some creative love and attention or with a pinterest board full of ideas that just need putting together. We are ready for the challenge and love creating something truly memorable for our clients.

Then, we set up a phone consultation meet-&-greet. Ideally, we hit it off and decide we are a good match to proceed!
Next, we put together a design proposal for you to make sure we are on the same page with both style and budget.Finally, we ask that you move forward by signing our contract & placing a deposit to officially book us for your event. We are not able to hold your date without a deposit!
DECOR & DESIGN
“WOW! Really all I have to say! Emily was exceptional to work with. From day one Burlap and Lace went above and beyond by creating beautiful flower board, visiting the site with me and always being in open communication. I was blown away by their work and they truly exceeded my expectations. I could not have asked for a better florist! True professionals!” - Jurenda, November 2018
“Emily and Liana are an absolute pleasure to work with! The vision they created from my (very general and nonspecific) ideas were exactly what I pictured for our wedding. I would recommend them to anyone, I've already had a few friends use their services for their own weddings, to which they had only glowing reviews themselves.” - Maddy, July 2018
“Emily did an amazing job of providing stunning flowers that really fit my vision! I chose them because they fit my modest budget and I liked a lot of their work but was a little unsure at first as this is a fairly new business and they didn't have anything in their portfolio that was quite like what I wanted -- but now they do, because she completely got what I was looking for and pulled it off beautifully. The bouquets were gorgeous and the boutonnieres were perfect too. She also filled 80 bud vases with blooms on-site the of for an exceedingly reasonable fee. My mother-in-law thought I had splashed out for lots of nice flower arrangements, because the bridesmaid and bridal bouquets looked so perfect in vases on the dining, gift and cake tables after the ceremony. This is a small home-based business and worth supporting!” - Emily, June 2018
“A special thank you to Liana who provided my bouquet, the bridesmaid bouquets, the boutonnieres, and corsages. I know absolutely nothing about flowers much less floral arrangements. I met with Liana and she made it so simple all by asking me what flowers I like and the color theme. From there she created floral inspirations and my only task was to either approve or disapprove...she's good at her job because there wasn't any disapproving on my end! @burlapandlaceflorals came recommended by a coworker who'd wedding day is just around the corner and @ferkyferks they were AMAZING! Thank you for the suggestion!” - Philesha, March 2018
“Working with Emily and Liana was such an easy and lovely experience. They were so organized, and worked so hard to help us create the simple modern, and elegant look. Their expertise and connections were invaluable, and made the whole process run smoother than I could have imagined. I’d get married all over again to be able to work with them again. (Or maybe I should just host more parties) THANK YOU EM & LIANA!” - Olivia, September 2017
“Emily & Liana, thank-you, thank-you, thank-you! You two are both rockstars and did such an incredible job with our flowers and decor. You truly outdid yourselves in making our special day absolutely perfect. I appreciate all the hard work, time and love you put into everything - you captured my vision brilliantly! Sending so much love and gratitude to you both.”
- Burgundy, October 2016
“Emily & Liana, Wow. You two really went above and beyond. I can’t believe how beautiful our wedding was because of your talents. Thank you both for all your hard work. Our wedding would not have been the same without you.
- Paul, October 2016
“Burlap & Lace did all of the florals for our wedding and we couldn't have been happier! Unlike most brides who probably spend a lot of time on pinterest for inspiration, I went in with very little idea of what I was looking for (other than wanting to use succulents, and not wanting roses!) Emily and Liana were totally fine with that and made me feel very comfortable as they helped me select exactly what I needed. They worked within my budget, their prices were more than fair, and the end result was absolutely stunning! They paid attention to every little detail - the bridal bouquet was incredible. Couldn't have been happier. Thanks Em and Liana!” - Heather, May 2016
