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.

I worked with Zoe and Kellie a lot and they are both such sweethearts and you can tell they really are passionate about what they do. The whole Botanica team is amazing. I really appreciate how easy they were to work with and what a great vendor they are. I will say there were a couple of things that didn't turn out exactly the way that we had talked about but I was so happy overall with the flowers and that it didn't matter to me. The bridesmaids bouquets were supposed to have ivory ribbon but had blush which was a little off from the bridesmaids dresses blush color but it looked fine and was not a big deal. The flowers themselves were not exactly as I had pictured with the open, wide concept so that when everyone holds up their bouquets they flow into each other. However, the flowers were gorgeous and I loved the bouquets anyways. I did have to cut the stems of of my bouquet because they were so long and I had requested that the bouquet be wide and open with criss-crossing stems and provided a photo of a bouquet like that and they were very tight and long. We clipped them a little bit so they weren't quite as long but were exposed and it was fine. Overall the bouquet was absolutely stunning and I can't stop looking at it in photos. The centerpieces turned out beautiful. They do a sample viewing of your centerpiece which I loved and was a big reason I picked them so I could see the centerpiece before the wedding. They show you the middle price tier and you have the option of going cheaper or more expensive. They do say the centerpiece won't get smaller if you go cheaper, just less full, and I did feel that they were smaller. BUT just like with everything, I loved them anyways and they turned out beautiful. The arch they created was stunning and better than I envisioned. The cake flowers we agreed on were different but it still turned out beautiful. I am overall thrilled with Botanica and would recommend them to someone wanting a beautiful wedding!

Zoe at Botanica is fantastic! We had a hard time finding examples of what we had in mind and we were trying to use a unique combination of flowers and colors, but Zoe captured it perfectly. Everyone commented on how beautiful the flowers were and about how they have never seen that combination of flowers in our color palette. I wish I could have kept them forever in my home - everything was stunning, down to the tiniest details on the boutonniere! Everything was soft and feminine, but definitely had the "WOW" factor. I am a perfectionist, and Zoe very patiently worked with me until the centerpieces and place settings were perfect, and they were. Also, Zoe designed the centerpieces for the rehearsal dinner, which had a completely different but equally stunning look and fit that *very different* venue perfectly, as well! Thank you, Zoe!

Botanica truly made my wedding vision a reality. I didn't do much with decor at the wedding, so I was heavily relying on the florals to make up for minimal decor. Zoe, Kellie, and the rest of the team at Botanica was wonderful to work with throughout the entire process! They were all so kind and flexible. Whenever I had questions, they would get back to me almost right away. They made my whole experience so easy, and I couldn't believe how incredible the venue looked for our wedding! I can't get over how stunning the flowers were, and my bouquet was to die for! From the beginning I felt like Zoe was on the same page as me and what I had in mind, and I am so thankful they were our florists, because they really did make our wedding so incredibly beautiful! Thank you girls for everything you've done to help me along the way and for making our wedding day so beautiful!

After my initial meeting with Botanica, I knew right away that I wanted to use their services for my wedding. Ian completely understood my vision from the very beginning, and his enthusiasm made me feel even more excited! Kellie was so, incredibly helpful throughout the entire process. She was always readily available to answer any questions I had. I was so happy when I saw the reception space the day of the wedding - I couldn't have asked for anything more perfect! It was exactly what I had envisioned, but even better! I received so many compliments on how gorgeous the flower arrangements were. Botanica truly went above and beyond, and I cannot thank them enough!!

Botanica was an outstanding choice for our wedding florist. After researching a number of florists and narrowing down a few to meet with, Botanica really listened to our vision and was genuinely excited to share in the day with us! Their excitement, honestly, was what sold us on choosing to work with them for our big day. From the beginning, they were easy to communicate with, share ideas, and help to bring our very specific vision to reality. When we walked into the ceremony and reception, we were awestruck. The work that Botanica had done truly took our breath away. Our guests enjoyed the evening so much more because of the personal touches that Botanica included. During the planning process, we were able to share our story with Zoe of Botanica and got to know her and her team as individuals. Our wedding became a project among friends. The love they put into their work and preparation really shined as we entertained and celebrated the event. Thank you for going above and beyond, Botanica!

I work in the industry and work with a lot of amazing vendors, but when it came to choosing he we were going to trust on our special day I knew it was the Botanica team. They are truly so talented and pleasant to work with. Their designs stand out and I could always tell as soon as I saw a setup that it was theirs. They take a classic look and put a twist on it. I gave them very little direction as I did not want to hinder their creativity and I am so happy that I did. I knew without a doubt that I could trust them to put together an exquisite design, and they completely nailed what I was hoping to achieve it the look and feel of the ceremony and reception and completely surpassed my expectations! Zoe, Ian, Kellie, Athena, and Jordan (and the entire team) were absolutely amazing. So professional and organized, and just easy to work with. I can't thank them enough for everything they did to create such a breathtaking and memorable day for us!
