Armidale florists create and design beautiful, affordable flower arrangements to bring sunshine into any occasion. Whether it’s creating dreamy bouquets and stunning bespoke arrangements for weddings, funerals, christenings and graduations, or styling commercial spaces, they are specialists at turning blooms into works of art. Gathering gorgeous favourites like peonies, roses, tulips and lilies, and an array of native and exotic foliage, fruit, berries and branches, local florists will make your wedding really special. They create bouquets, table settings, stunning floral arbours, corsages and flower crowns. Luscious flowers and foliage are used to complement wedding gowns, hairstyles and wedding day themes. They can even provide fresh blooms to decorate the wedding cake. Trained staff can also prepare flower arrangements and wreaths convey sentiment and demonstrate sympathy. Funeral flowers are a traditional way for families to personalise a funeral service. They also make a lovely memorial gift. Funeral arrangements range from coffins decorated with native foliage, to standing displays of traditional blossoms and delicate bouquets. Florists can help decorate your baby’s christening or baptism event with flowers designed to suit the church and reception, or to decorate the cake. Designs range from candle and wreath arrangements, to timeless favourites and pretty table centrepieces. Pre-ordering university graduation day bouquets and leis to make a graduate’s day merrier is also becoming a popular way to congratulate
a clever member of the family. From tulips to carnations, flowers declare love and hope for the future to your loved one. Experts at styling retail and other commercial spaces, there’s nothing so welcoming to guests or clients than appropriately sized arrangements of beautiful fresh blooms in the foyer or on the shop counter. Talk to your florist about ways to brighten up your commercial space on a regular basis. Your florist will also appreciate you being open about your budget from the start. There is a great demand for flowers of all shapes and sizes. Out of season flowers may also be sourced but florists can always create something unique with in-season blooms to suit every pocket. Flower studios are also great gift shops, where you can order everything from teddy bears, to chocolates and pot plants. Often, your local florist is well stocked with vases, pots and cute ornaments to send along with the bouquet. Some people prefer a gift that will last when the blooms have faded. Many florists offer a subscription delivery service where you can organise for a special someone to have fresh blooms delivered to the home or workplace on a regular basis. Ask your florist about their same day delivery service. Many offer refrigerated vans, which minimise wilting, ensuring your blooms arrive in perfect condition.
