Tessa Slade Floral Design is an artisanal floral business based in a home studio in Cape Town.

Tessa creates artistically designed flower arrangements suited to each individual client, keeping a close eye on the details.


Tessa has worked in floral studios in Cape Town and San Francisco. During her travels, she immersed herself in the floral world, gathering inspiration that she now brings to her floral designs.


Her floral creations can be ordered for any occasion or venue, from weddings to guesthouses and everything in between, bringing a refreshing splash of colour and an artistic flair to any space.


Tessa was one of our top designers at Urban Botanica. As the owner of a growing upscale floral studio, I found Tessa a joy and pleasure to work with. She took each and every assignment as an opportunity to hone her craft and step up her design skills. Her spirit seemed innately calm, kind and co-operative, and her work ethic solid.

Tessa ensured our home office had exceptional, artfully designed floral arrangements. She has always been incredibly friendly, thorough and professional throughout my time working with her. Her arrangements brought beauty and warmth throughout our office space.

Tess is a creative genius! She has created both a flower crown and bouquet for me, and I couldn't be happier with or more amazed by her arrangements. She has a natural ability for creating arrangements that are beautiful, unique, and meaningful!
