Meet Fouzia Tariq
Fouzia Tariq is the florist and Founder of Simply Elegant by Fouzia, a Milton based business. She is a happily married, mother of 2 children (now adults) and 3 fur babies. She’s been a very crafty person since her childhood and coming from an entrepreneur family, she always wanted to have something of my own.
Fouzia started teaching silk painting, candle making, cooking, baking and designing flower arrangements to women and within a few months, she started getting orders for flower arrangements for restaurants, homes, offices, and hotels, as well as requests to provide event decor. That is when Simple Elegant by Fouzia was born.
When asked, how that made her feel, she responded, “All the orders gave me a great sense of achievement, which gave me the confidence to transition from a hobby to a professional business.”
Fouzia went on to explain more about her entrepreneurial journey, “I had to take a break from working professionally when my children reached their teenage years but I kept educating myself with different online courses and training. I resumed again with more maturity and professionalism when they reached adulthood. I’m thankful to have a career that I have been able to start and pause based on the needs of my family.”
About Simply Elegant by Fouzia
Fouzia has been in business for the last 12 years and since then she’s always tried to push the boundaries of floral designs and decoration and bring the latest decor trends to my clients.
When we asked Fouzia what she feels has been a success factor in her business, she stated, “The most important thing for me in my business is my Integrity and my client’s satisfaction. I personally take care of all my clients from their very first call, whether the order is for just an arrangement or a grand event until the final product is delivered.”
How do flowers make you feel?
“To be honest, it’s an inexpressible feeling of delightment, to be explained in words; but, I would say that working with flowers makes me feel instantly happy and brings great satisfaction when I see my clients face’s light up with joy. I firmly believe that Flowers bring happiness when life starts and closure when it ends.”~ Fouzia Tariq
