Flowers After Hours
Aside from being conveniently late night for spontaneous date nights or "I'm sorry" blooms, we love FAH's posy selection: fresh flowers with lush foliage in a beautiful glass vases. Flowers aside, FAH's delicate packaging alone is lustworthy. Top tip: sign up online for their mid-week special. Available for online order only, every week a bunch of the Wednesday flower market's finest florals is on offer, at prices starting from $20. Bargain.
Wild Poppies spreads floral happiness to Auckland central, every hour! If that's not a delivery service, we don’t know what is! For an all-round sensory experience, the weekly flowers are accompanied by Little Cake Kitchen cupcakes. Or for something truly wow, the Brandy and Bluebells Bouquet. Seasonal flowers in a colour palette of blues, lilac and peach brandy tones will have Pantone devotees swooning.
For those of us who are bit last minute, Miss Blossom's daily designs can be ordered online until 12.30pm for same day delivery. Or you can send on a later date. For a random act of kindness or just an "I'm thinking of you", we love that Miss Blossom makes it easy and affordable to celebrate little everyday occasions. The only decision that remains is "small bunch or big bunch"? The answer is big bunch, always.
Ruby Rose Flower Studio
The girls behind Ruby Rose have a real eye for a colour. Not only does Ruby Rose craft fresh, seasonal flowers with a designer edge at an affordable price tag, their arrangements are simply gorgeous. There's a posy bag and wrapped bouquet offered daily but Ruby Rose offers more than typical flowers. We reckon the potted lavender and the concrete planter of succulents are beautiful alternatives to flowers and would look stunning in any office.
