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

WOW... is all I can say about the service provided by Botanica International Design studio. WOW was also what I said at our first preview at the flowers trial, with Zoe providing a small room model set up with the flowers and decor we had chosen for the event.. walking into the model room just only made me feel SO EXCITED to see the final event. WOW.. was the first thing I said when I walked into my ballroom. A room I had found to be previously bland was converted into a magical, victorian banquet room, with beautiful tall arrangements of cherry blossoms, complimented with romantic bouquets of ivory and pink flowers.

All I had given them was pictures of my dress, the bridesmaid dresses, and the groomsmen tuxes, told her I liked gold, and she could not have nailed it more on the head. The flowers, the colors and their romantic feel, totally made the Feng Shui ON POINT!

Botanica's service was absolutely stellar, flexible, and personal. They took all my ideas, personality, and the overall theme of the wedding and really made it a spectacular intimate setting.

My highest recommendations for Botanica International Studio, and I am truly grateful for their amazing talent, caring nature, and GORGEOUS flowers.

From the moment we stepped into Botanica we felt at ease. We spoke about the vision we wanted for our wedding, and with their creativity, they made it happen. Botanica’s ability to envision your wedding day is utterly amazing. Even after seeing the pre-wedding presentation, when the day finally arrived, and we stepped into that reception hall for the first time, we were absolutely blown away by their work!! The details, the presentation, the FLOWERS!!!!!! We couldn’t have asked for more amazing professionals to work with! Thank you Zoe, Kellie & Your Team at Botanica!

The Botanica team was amazing and all of the flowers and tables at our wedding turned out perfectly. I had an overall vision for the wedding but knew no specifics- thankfully Botanica is a team of experts and they were able to take my ideas from our initial conversations and my pinterest boards and turn them all into a beautiful New Years Eve extravaganza. Working with Zoe was wonderful and she listened to all of my requests and questions up until the last minutes before wedding day, she was always very responsive and willing to work with me and some of my crazier requests. They truly made my vision come true and dealt with last minute additions such as a head table with ease and the perfect execution on the day of, everything from the table cloths to the large candelabras were amazing. I would recommend their team to any bride in the Tampa area!

Botanica International Floral Designs provided a floral decor that was absolutely gorgeous. They were organized and helpful during the planning of my daughters wedding and captured the elegance of her vision. The reception ballroom was a winter wonderland with elegant white towers of flowers with gold accents. A truly magnificent job and we would highly recommend them for any event.

From an absolutely stunning wedding arch to giant centerpieces with dangling crystals, we felt that Botanica went above and beyond to realize our vision for our wedding day. I was impressed with their professionalism and responsiveness, especially since I sent back and forth e-mails at least 20 times and Botanica responded within 24 hours every time. I know that all the guests, including myself, raved about the quality of the flowers, and I could not be happier.

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!
