Paddy Gibb Flowers is a unique, professional florist that has been in business for more than 40 years. Paddy Gibb Flowers is a trend setting florist, knocking the conventional gladioli-crucifix arrangements sideways and with the cottagey floral hats and baskets. He became the leading florist during the 80’s and 90’s. Today, the same unique, magical, compositions of floral arrangements continue to captivate clients.

Alec Gibb, an international flower person, a master florist, and extravaganza planner started the florist in Durban before coming to Johannesburg, and as a conspicuous consumerism, he was in his natural habitat, a creator of magic in a grand style.

Gibb orchestrated Sol Kerzner’s son’s Barmitzvah, Gordon Wadell’s 50t birthday and weddings for the daughters of everyone from the Gallo’s to Greta Abrahamson. The Carlton Hotel and other prominent hotels, including flowers for Nelson Mandela, Princess Anne on her visit to South Africa are some of the notable achievements.

Recent achievements include mother’s day events at Prada Sandton city, cover shoot for the Mango Juice magazine and extravagant flowers cakes for BBC’s great South African bake off.

For two years running Paddy Gibb Flowers won “the florist of the year”award from Leisure Options best of Johannesburg reader’s choice award.

The staff, all trained under the watchful eye of Gibb remain committed to the uniqueness and quality of floral designs. It is the design, technic and ensuring only top quality flowers are used, that all carry the Alec Gibb stamp of approval.
