There is always a time to buy somebody a bunch of flowers; whether it be somebody special in your life’s birthday, a job promotion, a way to sorry (we’re looking at you fellas), or even just a way of bringing some fresh energy into your home.
Getting your hands on amazingly vibrant and fresh flowers can seriously make anyone’s day — if not week!
In order to help you maintain that bestest friend ever status — or help you out of the dog house — we’ve compiled an easy list of places with the freshest flowers and the brightest bunches!
Moss & Stone
With two different outlets in Southport, there’s no denying these guys are big players when it comes to the fresh flowers — their multiple awards also cement this fact! You might get distracted from your flower mission with the exciting selection of homewares, skincare, and gifts, but remain focussed — you got this!
Where: 4/41 Musgrave Avenue, Chirn Park or Gold Coast University Hospital, Southport
When an occasion calls for some serious flower power, then you need to grab the phone and have a chat with Haylee from Huckleberry Flowers: because what this girl can’t do with flowers isn’t worth knowing. You’ll catch her at The Village Markets Burleigh or see her arrangements for sale at the craftsy Heartfill store in Miami.
Where: The Village Markets and Heartfill, 1/29 Lemana Lane Miami
Tugun Fruit and Flowers
Taking a trip to Tugun is always a great idea and a fabulous way to slow things down and enjoy a more relaxed village-style vibe to the Gold Coast. Swing by Tugun Fruit and Flowers, and not only will you find amazing juices (yum), you’ll also discover adeptly put together flower arrangements and a collection of dried flowers which are sure to brighten any room.
Where: 4/467 Golden Four Drive, Tugun
Village Flower Emporium
With free delivery for Sanctuary Cove and Hope Island residents, if there’s somebody up north who you want to spoil, then these guys are very much an option. Besides delivery, the shop caters to all tastes with a wide range of bouquets and gift packs as well as plush teddy bears — now if that doesn’t make somebody’s day, we don’t know what will!
Where: The Marine Village, 31 Masthead Way, Sanctuary Cove
Now it may be a touch off-topic, but the selection of gifts that online Gold Coast florist Bloom Jar has at your disposal is nothing short of impressive. Jazz up any flower order with the addition of candles, chocolate, body oil, and wine! Their ‘everlasting collection’ are carefully curated dried flower arrangements and vary in style and size: perfect for any situation!
Canvas Palm Beach
It didn’t take long for this Nobby Beach crafts store come café to extend its reach on the Gold Coast, and the recently opened venue in Palm Beach is a destination of gifts, homewares, crafts, and marvellous coffee. You’ll also see daily fresh flowers of market bunches and arrangements (made exclusively by the Canvas team) as well as great specials (like their recent sunflower weekend), perfect when you know you need to bring something to your friend’s BBQ!
Where: 3/1328 Gold Coast Highway, Palm Beach
