Because you will get exceptional quality, freshness and value.
We’re celebrated as the northern rivers’ best florist and our unique and inspiring studio is filled with the freshest blooms available. Our flowers arrive daily and come direct from local and Australia-wide growers, as well as flower wholesalers in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
Quality and flower freshness are paramount. Amazing flowers and our passion to create beautiful floral designs with a personal touch sees us continually striving to exceed individual needs and our customers’ expectations.
We give great value for your money. Whether you purchase a small or large item, you will know that every dollar you spend with us goes into providing quality designs.
We are a member of Interflora Australia and organise delivery of flowers to locations throughout Australia and the world.
We do not work for any online order gatherers who use very real looking websites to gather online orders. Order gatherers are not attached to a physical, bricks-and-mortar flower shop; instead, their web pages come up when you search for a florist in any town or location in Australia.
When a customer orders with an online order gatherer, their order is sold on to a florist for a much less than the customer has paid online. It is highly likely that the customer is not aware that there is a middleman involved, or that a large percentage of the money they have paid for a floral gift stays with the order gatherer. Florists who accept an order from an order gatherer like Sarah’s Flowers, Lily’s Florist, Bloomex, Ready Flowers, Easy Flowers, Roses Only, deliver a design which is the value they have been paid, and not the value of the design shown on the online order gatherer’s web page.
We encourage you to shop local and support local and be astute about where you’re spending your money, so you get what you pay for. When you use an order gatherer you get less, are likely to be disappointed, and become are dissatisfied with the whole flower giving experience.

The flowers, chocolates and wine are just perfect. My parents are so happy! Thank you. Mandy (23 April 2020)
Just wanted to thank you the beautiful arrangement of flowers for my mum’s funeral on the 24th March. You captured all the flowers she loved. Today I have started the process of drying the flowers, something I did with her many many years ago. It gives me a sense of peace that even though the funeral was heavily impacted by Covid 19 restrictions the flowers were perfect. Well done. Sue and Diane (28 March 2020)
