Boom!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ We have a lot of bouquet photos considering we've been in the biz since 2005. .⠀ .⠀ But @kyraboyerweddings blew us away with her attention for floral detail.⠀

Saturday stunners

Saturday stunners! . . Sometimes you gel with your brides like you've known them forever, Gaby was one of those brides. . . She dropped into our studio a few days after the wedding with gifts, a thank you card (swipe to read) and the biggest hugs ever. . . This is our "why". . . It's why we get up at stupid-o'clock to hand-pick wedding flowers from the market, why we complete late night pack-downs after all the guests have gone, why we spend countless hours at the desk creating custom quotes, why we drive all over the country side to set up special backdrops, why we spend (sometimes) entire nights at the workbenches putting the designs together, why we climb endless ladders and stairs to suspend inspiring installations and access awkward back entrances to venues, why we constantly push ourselves to improve our business and to quicken our response time, always hungry to learn new techniques and to bring you THE BEST FLORAL EXPERIENCE WE POSSIBLY CAN. . . Each and every time this response is our goal, it’s our “why”. . . Our "why" is you. 🥰#notyouraverageflorist #haveflowerswilltravel📷 Kyra Boyer Photography⠀ #thriveflowers #thriveweddingflowers #melbourneweddingflowers #weddingflowersdecor #weddingflowersau #weddingflowersinspiration #weddingflowersdecoration #weddingflowersideas #weddingflowersdesign #weddingflowerspecialist #weddingflowersinspo #weddingflorist #weddingfloristmelbourne⠀ #weddingbouquetmelbourne

How good is a cool change? …

How good is a cool change? If you can call it that when it still hits 27c! . . These beauties went out for Steph and Henry yesterday. . . With roses this fragile and with heat like yesterday's it meant we were up super early to finish creating the bouquets. . . But we allowed a few minutes just after dawn to play with some cute shots! . . What’s your fave, 1 or 2? . . Shout out to @sohoroses who busted her chops to get our massive order filled the week of her own wedding! Also to @grandiflora who never fail to deliver quality! @ Thrive Flowers & Events

Epic #foamfree head-table runner created onsite …

Epic #foamfree head-table runner created onsite for J&T.⠀ ⠀ Using #nofloralfoam can take more time as things can't be made in advance as easily... But it's something that's important to us and we're striving every day to challenge ourselves, educate our clients and work towards becoming 100% foam free.⠀ ⠀ It's not always easy; the industry and therefore the clients have learnt to become accustomed to the ease of using foam and the shapes and designs that can be created with it. But it is not biodegradable and a huge hazard to marine life, as so much of it goes down the drain. ⠀ ⠀ The challenge of learning to create our designs differently is exciting and thinking outside the (floral foam) brick is incredibly rewarding.⠀ ⠀ Would you go foam free for your wedding?⠀ ⠀ Photo @ramifosberrystudios ⠀ Dress @marianahardwick ⠀
