Beauty is all around us, so how can anyone resist the prettiest gifts Mother Nature has to offer - gorgeous, boldly coloured, fresh flowers. If you're currently thinking of buying a bouquet for a special someone in your life, here’s a list of Top 10 to help you decide which florist you can turn to.
Whatever blooms you fancy, it's likely that Fleuriste has them. From pretty peonies to dashing dahlias, you'll be certain to find something that will suit your tastes here. In addition to custom bouquets, the company also has a flower subscription service. If you'd like to beautify an area in your workplace/home, a flower subscription request begins at $85 which is inclusive of delivery charges as well. For custom bouquets, the minimum order is $80 with a flat rate of $15 for delivery, and 2 days notice is required for your request to be completed.
2) Marche Aux Fleur
Got green fingers? Then head on over to Upper Thompson Road because this place would be right up your alley. Why? Well in addition to an array of gorgeous flowers, they also have terrariums in stock. For the uninitiated, terrariums are glass containers that house small plants. If you can't head on over personally, just click away on their website and you could have bouquets, terrariums, flower stands and the like delivered. They are also able to fulfill requests for bridal bouquets, and wedding car decorations.
3) Petite Fleur
Since 2015, Patricia has been creating works of art with elegant flower arrangements, something she'd been enjoying as a hobby for years before that. If you have an event that requires eye-catching and stunning flowers, give her a call. From shades of pastel blue or fuchsia to multi-coloured mixes of flowers, Petite Fleur is committed to creating works of art to suit your taste, whatever the occasion.
4) Events n Such
As their name suggests, their services extend beyond floral arrangements, which makes them the perfect company to contact if you have an important party or celebration coming up. Check out their blog on their official website to see wedding venue arrangements they have done, or sign up for one of their workshops where you can get inspired to decorate for your own event. They have several packages available for weddings, so check those out if you're planning to tie the knot.
5) Floral Magic
Family is at the very heart of Floral Magic, which explains the longevity of the company - their doors have been open for 16 years! They're available for consultation by appointment only at their store on King George's Avenue, or you can shop online via their website. From flowers arranged harmoniously according to colour themes, to lovely bridal bouquets to suit any bride's fancy, you will be spoilt for choice here.
6) The Floral Atelier
Enchanting flowers don't always have to come in bouquets, and The Floral Atelier's offerings are proof of that. They have the uniquely named "Bloom-In-A-Box", or you could also opt for a vase of flowers. You can even search for your perfect blooms according to colour on their website, which is a cool option for those who prefer single coloured flowers. What's more, they've also collaborated with Maison Ladurée, to provide blooms together with their exclusive macarons!
7) PoPPy Flora Studio
Beyoncé once sang that girls run the world, and that's certainly true for PoPPy Flora Studio, which is run by six ladies, who each bring their own strengths to the table, thus resulting in a really well-oiled machine. PoPPy has flowers of all price ranges, so you don't have to worry about burning a hole in your wallet when you can get some blooms for as low as $18 (they deliver too!). They also place an importance on minimizing waste and having a sustainable way of working with the flowers, therefore eco-friendly methods are considered.
8) Shop Wonderland
This place has come a long way since its inception in 2010. Operating from their flagship store on stylish Haji Lane, Shop Wonderland also has a cafe, where you can sit down and enjoy a cuppa as you take in the scent and sight of the breath-taking flowers around you. Bouquets and floral gift baskets can also be purchased online, for a more convenient option.
9) A Better Florist
If you want a simple and fast way of getting your flowers, then this is the one for you. A Better Florist gets a daily shipment of blooms from Cameron Highlands, and they strive to make the business of ordering flowers as streamlined as possible, while being affordable and beautiful at the same time. It just takes three steps to get your flowers. Check out their selection online, pick a date and time for delivery, and pay for your purchase. Best of all, there's no delivery charge too!
10) One Olive
Take it from Sunday, One Olive's resident four-legged feline roamer, this place is awesome! It's pretty much a one stop center if you're a lover of plants and flowers of the artisanal kind. Amy and Niki are One Olive's Creative Head and Project Stylist respectively, and with both their skills and passions helping to form the basis of the shop, the place is truly a magnificent sight. Whether it's flowers for a wedding or event, or you simply want to spruce up your living space with some potted plants, head on over and get inspired by nature's finest.
