Why Li'l Mam?

MAM stands for my initials, Michelle Andrea Mange. I go by Michelle Downey now but wanted to keep the business name representing my maiden name.

Li'l Mam is a local home business which can provide you with the same services as most flower shops and we pride ourselves on excellent customer service! Li'l Mam has a modern approach to floral design and delivers a more artistic product. We educate our clients and are honest and realistic with the client expectations.

About Me

Why do I do what I do?

When I started working in a flower shop I was always so disappointed when I would see unhappy brides as a result of poor communication. Unfortunately this was far too common. I believe that the Bride should know exactly what to expect on her wedding day and be well educated on what is realistic, given their budget, the season, and the effects that other variables (such as perfume) might have on her arrangements! I want to give Brides exactly that service. That is why I started Li’l Mam Flowers. I love working with couples to determine what they are looking for, and creating it.

On September 1st 2012 I married my best friend John Thomas Downey. We were married at Furry Creek Golf Course in Squamish BC. Mike Barry at http://www.m7p.ca did an amazing job with our photos! 2 days after we got back from our honeymoon we got a puppy named Turtle! He has quickly become a member of our new family. He is now 80lb a wonderful big brother to Adrain who was bron on October 8th 2013 and Annabelle who was bron on September 20th 2015. 

Words I live by

I read this quote off a book mark when I was 10 years old and still say it to my self- "You never know how far you can go until you try" – Author unknown

Since then I have added a few more to my repertoire:

"Live life to the fullest and let yourself grow by hunting for the next adventure" – Michelle Mange

"Life is a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs. The downs are what help you embrace the ups. So learn from them, remember them, analyse them, and grow from them. Just remember the ups will come again and you will be that much stronger" – Michelle Mange

"Smile, and make the best of every situation you are faced with" – Michelle
