Flowers are a popular purchase for people living and working in the city centre. They provide a break from the dullness of an office building and can help to improve their mood.
Fortunately, there are plenty of beautiful Auckland flower shops to choose from. If you’re after something special for a loved one, here are a few places to check out.
Located in the affluent Parnell district, Blush Flowers is a modern flower shop with a twist. Owner and florist Kelly Karam, who left a successful fashion design career for floral styling, repurposed her home into a boutique with a well-considered aesthetic that celebrates flowers as an art form.
In addition to stunning floral creations, Blush offers a curated selection of living plants, cleverly designed vases and elegant packaging for the most discerning of shoppers. The company has a winning formula, and with their impressive new store opening in April, we can’t wait to see what’s in store for them in the future. The aforementioned swanky store, complete with eye-catching design touches and a jaw-dropping brass counter is a must-visit when you’re in the market for something a little special.
