There is always a good reason to buy flowers, for a special someone or even for yourself.
No matter the day or the occasion, flowers instantly brighten up and energise any space. They can instantly make anyone smile and improve their mood.
If you’re in a flower-giving or flower-buying mood today, here are some places where you can buy flowers for all occasions.
Local floristIt is always a great idea to support your local shops. There is an ecosystem of suppliers and entrepreneurs that help keep a floral shop running, and whenever you buy from them, you do your share in boosting the local economy.
It also means that your flowers are sourced locally so they are as close to fresh as you can possibly get. Unless you have a specific flower in mind that is not available in-store, buying from your local florist is fast and easy, and most likely customisable as well. If you want something unique especially on a holiday where everyone else is getting flowers, this is your best bet.
SupermarketThis is not the most sustainable option there is but it has its place and purpose in the industry. Buying supermarket flowers is fast and convenient. It’s for those days when you have to do a million other things and getting flowers is one of them.
It can also be ideal for those with a limited budget. Of course, in a perfect world, we would always buy the best for our loved ones. But in this imperfect world where prices and budgets tend to go up all the time, it is always good to have the option to get beautifully packaged but affordable flowers.
Online flower shopOf course you can buy flowers online! It’s convenient and it gives you access to varieties that may not be easily available in nearby physical shops. It also allows you to send flowers to your loved ones, wherever they are in Australia (or the world, really). The feeling of receiving flowers is incomparable, so making that effort is always worth it.
Buying flowers online opens up your world to options that you may not even have thought possible. For instance, did you know that you can buy roses that last for over one year aka Everlasting Roses?
Our flagship Everlasting Roses are real Ecuadorian roses preserved using a non-toxic proprietary solution which maintains their fresh look for more than a year. The petals won’t wilt and fall off. This also means they require practically no maintenance. Just set them down somewhere indoors and they will make the perfect decorative piece, and a good conversation starter too!
Why more people are opting for Everlasting Roses
With fresh flowers, we know that the beauty is short-lived and sometimes, we factor in this short life span when considering how much we want to spend on flowers. Of course, when we buy flowers for a special someone or to celebrate an important occasion, the price tag becomes secondary. But wouldn’t it be nice to know that the flowers you’re getting will stay beautiful, and thus bring joy to you or to the recipient, for a long time?
If dust accumulates on the petals, you can simply use a gentle brush. The dome can be wiped clean with a microfibre cloth and glass cleaner if it starts to get foggy.
Plus, our Everlasting Roses do not pose any risk to human health or the environment so it’s definitely a bonus.
