Since 1989, Botanica International Design Studio has served the greater Tampa Bay community to provide the very best in eventdesign and technique. From weddings to anniversary parties, to corporate gala events, our talented design team is able to handle all your floral event design needs.

Botanica is owned and operated by Ian Prosser. Born in Scotland, Ian has over 30 years experience within the floral industry. After getting his start in Glasgow, Scotland, where he owned three successful floral design shops, Ian moved hia family to Tampa in 1985.

A graduate of Woodburn Horticultural College in Scotland, Ian has won many design awards. He was the youngest person to receive the honor of "Floral Designer of the Year" for Scotland. Ian has also earned the "National Diploma of the Society of Floristry" (NDSF), the highest European honor in floral design. He has been inducted into the American Institute of Floral Designers (AIFD), The American Academy of Floriculture (AAF) and Professional Floral Communicators International (PFCI) . He is also a member of the FTD Design Team, which sends him around the country demonstrating, commenting, and teaching floral design to his peers. These travels have also sent him to China to lecture students regarding current floral design and upcoming trends.

He was invited by the Society of American Florists to participate in designing the inaugural decorations of President Bill Clinton and President George W. Bush. In 2005, Ian was given the honor by the Society to serve as "Floral Design Chairperson" for the second-term inauguration of President George W. Bush. As "Floral Design Chairperson", Ian helped in the selection and management of the 160 florists picked from across the country to create the floral decorations needed for the many events surrounding the inauguration. Working in close association with the Presidential inaugural committee, he helped to style the rooms for 14 official events, including the 9 inaugural balls.

Botanica has been featured in Instyle Weddings Magazine, OK! Magazine, The Knot, Brides Florida Magazine, The Tampa Tribune, The St. Petersburg times, Floral Management Magazine and Florists Review Magazine. Read less

It was a pleasure working with Ian and Zoe. They have been doing this for so long and are true professionals. We had a vision of what we wanted and they brought that vision to life. Everything turned out better than we could have hoped. Our wedding was outside, and we had a gorgeous altar that was blown down by a huge gust of wind. Most people would have paniked. It was no sweat for Ian. He improvised and had it back up in no time. Botanica also did our rehearsal dinner. Both venues looked absolutely phenomenal. Ian and Zoe are top notch.

Botanica exceeded every expectation we imagined for our wedding floral design. We were directed to Ian by our wonderful photographer, Djamel Ramoul, after hearing our desire to achieve an elegant old Florida look that would be earthy and natural but classic, not rustic (we weren’t even sure what this would be but we wanted it!) and we were a little concerned on how to make this work at our venue (MFA in St. Petersburg). After meeting with Ian in Tampa, there was not a reason to visit another; he took our ideas and grew them into something absolutely amazing. Ian understood the design goal and direction, provided helpful suggestions to guide our choices, listened well to our feedback, and he left no doubt that he and his team would create a beautiful and unique expression of us through the floral design. When we returned months later to see a mockup of one of the centerpieces, I actually cried (and felt ridiculous!) but apparently this is a normal reaction for Botanica brides as their work is truly this moving. In addition to our centerpieces, Ian had added a few design touches to the table that made the whole unit work perfectly in concert. Yes, our budget needed a little adjusting as we spend disproportionately more on floral but the cost benefit is huge, it really was the highlight of the wedding and guests continue to tell us how impressed they were by the décor. Everything Botanica did for our wedding (church and reception floral, lighting, feasting table centerpiece, guest table centerpieces, bouquets, cake floral, flower children headpieces, escort card table grass/box) was outstanding. While we were on our honeymoon, Botanica even emailed to let us know that nursing home residents were enjoying our floral and that made us so happy to know others would continue to enjoy the beauty and joy Botanica had brought to our wedding!

I would highly reccomend Botanica for wedding florals and decor. I used them for my destination wedding (I live in NYC, the wedding was in St Pete, FL), so we only met once in person. The rest of our dealings were via email and on the phone. When I saw the first samples, I was not thrilled with the design. They were incredibly responsive and Ian and Zoe expressed that their goal was to make 100% sure I was happy with the result. I sent more photos, they reviewed my pinterest page, and set up a second sample. I was much happier the second time, and we made a few more tweaks, and finalized the details. Needless to say, I was still a little nervous that they would not be able to create what I envisioned.
I could not have been happier with the result. The chairs, linens, candles, utensils, and florals were absolutely PERFECT! The bouquets and boutonierres were exactly what we wanted. I cannot express how grateful I am to the Botanica team. They made the ballroom so beautiful that the venue's catering sales manager took photos for her sales materials! She said she hadn't seen the ballroom look that good in years.
Botanica worked tirelessly to bring my vision of my wedding to life. I will be forever grateful. I would recommend them to anyone!

The Botanica team is incredible and hands down the best florist and wedding design company in the area. Ian and Zoe were incredible to work with from day one, and they did such a great job of understanding the things that were important to me and my vision for the day, then creating an event that was much better than I could have ever imagined. They were incredibly responsive and flexible, making changes down to the last moment due to weather to ensure that everything was perfect. I received so many compliments from guests and from our venue, and I would absolutely recommend Botanica and Ian Prosser productions to anyone looking to plan an amazing event in the Tampa/Orlando area.

As the mother of the bride, it was such a pleasure to have the confidence of knowing we had THE best floral/event decor designer in Tampa (and I'm sure well beyond!). Every event is different, and no proposal or inspiration board--no matter how detailed--can fully prepare you for how the finished product will look and feel in actuality. Which was potentially a little scary for me, given that Ian Prosser Productions was a decent chunk of our overall budget. But expressing the bride's style visually was important to us, and I was familiar enough with Ian's reputation to know that whatever Botanica did was going to be fresh, original, and fabulous. And we weren't disappointed!
Everything was exquisite, and both guests and vendors still can't say enough about it--people raved not only about the delicious details (hanging lanterns, the wine bar, pashmina cabinet, orchid lamps...) but also the overall style, layout, and flow. So if you're considering using Ian Prosser Productions (which is, for lack of a better term, Botanica's "full Monty" in terms of services) for your wedding, just know you're getting a lot more than just gorgeous floral arrangements, linens and furniture (beautiful as they are!). You're also getting a layout that will be ideally suited to your venue, catering, and timeline. They're experienced with crowd flow and behavior, when and where people will congregate, sit, etc., which is really essential if your guest list is over 250!
For my husband and me, having only one daughter, this was a once-in-a-lifetime event, and Botanica/Ian Prosser productions truly provided the dream-come-true decor that our family will treasure forever. And Botanica is now and forever my go-to for any and every future event! (I'm thinking/hoping a baby shower will be next but the bride is telling me to give it a rest...)
