A Few Fave Florists for Valentine’s Day

Words by Tamarin Morley
February 9, 2018

Let’s preface this post by saying romance is for life, not just for Valentine’s day. Then again, any excuse for a day of bountiful blooms is a-ok by us!

We’ve rounded up a few floral friends across Australia and New Zealand who are offering something a little different to the tired red rose. Think mixed seasonal blooms with plenty of texture and form.

Sure, it’s easy to go to your major flower delivery website and order a carbon copy bouquet, but we’re pretty sure you’ll get extra brownie points for supporting local and choosing something lovingly crafted by a floral guru.

Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your boo/bestie/dog etc. xo
