Welcome to Havarni & Me

Hey there!

I'm Olivia, a wife to my amazing husband Nathan, and a proud mom of two beautiful girls: Milani (four) and Havarni (two). I'm the heart and soul behind Havarni and me, where we create everlasting blooms.

Our home base is in Maitland, Hunter Valley, but that doesn't limit our reach. We travel far and wide, and we ship our creations Australia-wide.

If you've been following me on social media, you probably know my little tribe well. Nathan's often busy crafting frames for wedding arbors and installations, while the girls love to "help" me with my floral creations. I'm all about showing the real deal on social media – the good, the bad, and the chaos. Life as a business owner working from home with little ones isn't always picture-perfect, but it's real, and I hope it makes you feel like you're not alone in the daily adventure.

My journey started with a career in business management and leadership, believe it or not, with a decade at McDonald's. I even had the opportunity to travel the world with them, opening the first McDonald's restaurant in Vietnam. But when my children came along, I faced the challenge of balancing demanding hours and shift work with a husband who was away for long hours. That's when I decided to venture into the world of floristry, despite being entirely self-taught in the field. My business know-how has been a valuable asset, and I pride myself on top-notch customer service.

My mission goes beyond making sales; I want to be an entrepreneur and an advocate for fellow mothers in business. I want to inspire local moms, showing that they can start a business with limited resources, learn and grow without formal qualifications, and create a flexible schedule that allows them to be there for their children's growth.

So, whether you're searching for a wedding florist, event stylist, craving a creative workshop, or looking for a custom arrangement, let's kick-start this conversation!
