Florists create bouquets and arrangements of different flowers and accompanying sprays of plants, making special experiences even more memorable through colour and scent.
The thoughtful team at Afterpay agrees there’s nothing nicer than giving or receiving fresh flowers, and has put together this comprehensive directory of the best florists so you can start spreading joy too.
Birthdays are an occasion where sending flowers is fantastically appropriate, and will remind the person you were thinking of them for a whole week after they receive them. Sending a bright bunch of blooms such as gerberas or oriental pink lilies will have them smiling all week long.
Romantic occasions call for red roses: a true expression of love. Roses are a special type of flower that smells exquisite and has an air of exclusivity to it. Yellow roses light up a room, and are given extra depth when paired with bright blue irises. Send an arrangement of roses to the one you adore, perhaps paired with some chocolate for an extra sweet touch.
‘Just thinking of you’ might well be one of the most lovely gestures you can mark with an arrangement from a florist. It’s perhaps even more meaningful than a birthday, Valentine’s Day or Christmas present. It shows the person you just wanted to send well wishes their way, and for them to have something beautiful.
Receiving a bouquet means a vase is required. There are so many options of vases, some glass and transparent, others opaque with beautiful colours and patterns. Choose one that goes with the decor of your home. The flowers will bring it to life even further.
Once you’ve typed a sweet note for the recipient, you can zip over to the online check out and reward yourself for being so nice with Afterpay’s easy instalment plan.
