Tove's Story


Gunnedah’s Stockholm Florist was founded by Swedish born florist and Mum of two, Tove Sparkes. Tove attended floral design school in Sweden for over three years full time and has been working in the industry for 20 years. Her passion for floristry is evident through her designs and unique products that can be found in her store.

“I love to follow trends and learn new techniques. The inspiration comes mostly from nature and from friends and customers who are looking for something special and very different.”

Tove left Sweden for Australia 10 years ago and eventually settled in the thriving New South Wales town of Gunnedah with her family.

“Gunnedah is such a beautiful little country town with wonderful people.”

Her store has become a much-loved stop for many local residents as well as visitors stopping by on their way through Gunnedah.
