The Best Florists in Canberra

13

Is there anything more beautiful than a vibrant, perfectly arranged bunch of fresh flowers?

Whether you are wishing someone a happy birthday or anniversary, congratulating them on a new baby, or simply letting them know that you are thinking about them, flowers are an incredibly touching gift. What’s more, flowers bring event venues to life, whether that be for a wedding, party, or business launch.

If you are looking for a talented florist in Canberra to purchase the ultimate bouquet for a friend, loved-one, or family member – or even a bunch of flowers for your home – you’ve landed in the right place. We’ve consulted with the locals and come up with this list of the top four florists in the region.

Let’s get started right away.

What makes an excellent florist?

Not sure exactly what you are looking for when comparing Canberra florists? No worries. Start by keeping an eye out for the following must-have traits:

  • A delightful range of fresh flowers. All flowers are beautiful, especially when they are fresh and full of life. The best florists offer a delightful collection of flowers and foliage.
  • Expert arranging skills. Flower arranging is an art form. The best in the business are detail-oriented and have an eye for design.
  • Experience with events. If you need flowers for an upcoming event, such as a wedding, birthday party, baby shower, or funeral, it’s best to work with a florist that has extensive experience.
  • Reliable delivery. A fresh bunch of flowers delivered directly to someone’s home or workplace makes a lovely gift. You want to be sure the arrangement you order shows up on the scheduled date.

On a side note, theword, have you requested congratulatory messages for your mother’s anniversary? For a 50th wedding anniversary, you can get a message from the Prime Minister and Governor-General at a minimum (maybe a few more depending on which State/Territory your parents live in).

This is a free service.

Florever in Dickson is highly recommended. They did my wedding. The price is reasonable, the arrangements are beautiful and the staff are friendly.

Can not speak highly enough of the Poetry in Flowers in Gunghalin near the cole. They were absolutely lovey.
I had several reccommendations for them for my wedding and way cheap ($650 for 1 bride, 4 brides maids, 3 flower girls and 5 buttonholes)

Manuka Flowers. Very good quality stock and capable florists.

Woolworths usually clear their flowers out a couple of times each week. You will save yourself a bundle if you get the timing right.

I used Capital Flowers recently – http://www.capitalflowersact.com.au/ – and found them to be very reasonably priced and flexible. they have set arrangements on line, but you can also phone them and indicate what style you like but change the colours etc to suit, or pick a designers choice and give them some general guidance.

Florever in Dickson helped me with custom made arrangements about two years back. Reasonably priced as well
