I am so excited to share this news with this fabulous group! Can a Westboro Institution and an Upstart Get Along? You Bet! Tivoli and Flowers Talk Amalgamate upon Owner’s Retirement For immediate release Ottawa Ontario, July8, 2014: After 25 years of blooming success, Tivoli owner Michael Corbeil is retiring and transferring the keys to his corner floral shop to Elizabeth Young of Flowers Talk. A community institution, Tivoli was trendy before the word was invented, and has been “the place to go” for all things decorative and floral well before Westboro, where the shop is located, assumed its present “hot” destination status. If one can imagine someone taking a chance on a road strip filled with auto dealerships and parts, gas stations and modest motels to open a flower shop, that individual would be Michael Corbeil. Since 1989, he and his staff have not only had one of the most beautifully decorated street corners in Ottawa’s west end, but have extended their magic touch from Westboro to events, homes and businesses throughout the National Capital Region and beyond. Flowers Talk – Tivoli marries Tivoli’s long-standing reputation for the largest selection of fresh cut flowers, the most exotic plants in Ottawa, and an experienced and dedicated team with Flowers Talk’s design and customer service excellence to bring clients the best of both retail floral worlds. As Michael puts it, “Those of you who are familiar with Elizabeth and her shop will already know what a talented and capable florist she is and that her amalgamation of Tivoli and Flowers Talk will be a fantastic shop. Of course, Pat, Jennifer, Yoshi, Tammy, Cate and all of the Tivolians you know and love will still be here to look after you, and the quality and selection you have come to depend on will not change a bit.” Elizabeth, who first got her “fingers in the dirt” at three years of age picking flowers with her mom to decorate the lampshades for the Young’s part-time lamp business, has always wanted to run her own business. She first came to know of Michael when she opened Majestic Events in the Westin Hotel and began ordering all her flowers from Tivoli. “I feel I’ve come full circle in a wonderful way,” says Elizabeth. “From initially ordering flowers from Michael for my first business and being so impressed not only by the stellar arrangements but by the way Michael treated his customers; to opening Flowers Talk in 2005; to having the incredible honour of carrying on the “Tivoli” name, I am truly fortunate.” Elizabeth has come a long way indeed – now providing flowers for such luminaries as Oprah and Hilary Clinton. Despite this heady exposure, Elizabeth stays grounded by continuing to serve her community exceptionally well. Something her pioneering Tivoli predecessor would heartily agree with.
