We reckon if food is the way to a guy’s heart, and diamonds are already a girl’s best friend, then flowers MUST be the way to a woman’s heart. Right?
The gift for love, life, loss, and pretty much every other occasion or experience, a bunch of blooms say everything when your brain turns to mush, or words just won’t cut it.
But, there’s a massive difference between those bouquets slapped together and wrapped in cellophane that sit for days in the supermarket, and a thoughtfully-gathered floral masterpiece that earns a prime position on the coffee table.
We don’t want you to fall short on your flower-giving duties, so we’ve hunted down the best florists on the Sunshine Coast for Valentine’s Day. They’ll have you on the receiving end of “ooohhhs” and “aahhhhs”, lifting the flower game across the region, as soon as they’re delivered.
Even if we didn’t know the reputation of Flax in Coolum Beach, we’d still fall for their pretty bunches at first look. This floral design house has a fresh approach, designing unique arrangements from flowers and foliage delivered daily. Our pick is the mixed bouquet. Trust us, order one of these babies and you’ll easily make it past first base with your new love. Oh, and if your girl is more of a food and less of a flower-lover, Flax does incredible hampers. Delivering from Caloundra to Noosa, if you want the wow-factor (as you should), give ‘em a call or place your request online.
We’re suckers for stunning bouquets of blooms delivered straight to our doors, and Willow Bud Shop hits next-level every damn time. From humble beginnings as a hobby to a fully-fledged business, Willow Bud Shop whips up boutique, carefully-crafted floral creations for those special occasions AKA Valentine’s Day (where as the events arm, Willow Bud focuses on weddings). One of the best florists on the Sunshine Coast, to place an order for your better half all you gotta do is jump over to their site and get selecting. So simple, you’d be a clutz to get it wrong.
Old news: we’ve had a long-time crush on Heavenly Blooms creations. New news: they’re now not only at Eumundi markets BUT have their own cute-as-a-button studio. Open Wednesday to Saturday (and at the markets Wednesday AND Saturday) if you did the whole dinner thing on V-Day and want to back it up the following morning with blooms, drop by and see Nat.
The Posy Co.
Let’s be frank, posies from $30 is a total bargain. But, that’s just how The Posy Co. rolls. While there’s no actual shop front, you can pre-order blooms for your love online. And, if you wanna go a step further, which we totally suggest, you can even grab one of their special Valentine’s Day hampers complete with bubbly, a cookie from Caloundra’s Stormie D’s Cupcakery and some sweet-smelling soap. Major brownie points with this one, guys!
So you really, REALLY want to send flowers to your special someone but you’re on a pretty tight budget? Enter: Flower Bomb. Delivering rustic bunches of flowers for as little as $50, all the way from Caloundra to Noosa, this has got to be one of the best florists on the Sunshine Coast for your Valentine’s Day needs.
That Little Flower Shop
We love their name as much as we love their flowers, and if you’ve got something super specific in mind for your Valentine, then check out this Buderim florist. Go traditional with a tonne of red roses or show her she brightens up your day with a big bouquet of happy sunflowers.
