Flowers delivered to Currumbin Waters

We’ve been working hard this week reviewing our survey and seeing where a lot of our customers come from.

Turns out Currumbin Waters is a really popular spot for us and we deliver flowers there at least daily. It covers quite a big area and is basically just at the back of us here in Palm Beach.

Natives never go out of style

Some of our most popular flowers are our natives – earthy, rich and bold colours that combine so beautifully, whether it be for a birthday, bouquet for a wedding or to decorate for a funeral or life celebration.

Lucky with Gold Coast natives

We’re very lucky with these native flowers here on the Gold Coast and they’re a firm favourite of many.

They’re so stylish and with their understated elegance, can be perfect for almost any occasion.

Rustic, natural flowers

The texture of native flowers is so unique that it fits in well with an often rustic look that is so popular.

We love our natives and can put together a beautiful arrangement of native flowers and have them delivered same day here on the Gold Coast.

We’d be delighted to help you surprise and delight someone with a bouquet of native flowers. Call me direct on 07 5534 6655 or order flowers online.

Our Gold Coast florists

Sending flowers to Gold Coast residents

We’re always thinking how we can better help our great customers.

How we can take away the stress and sense of risk when sending flowers to people on the Gold Coast, when you might live interstate or even overseas.

What you see is what you get in flowers!

One of the biggest issues we see is that people often worry that the flowers they see on the web site won’t be the same sort or quality of flowers that get delivered to their loved one/friend/boss/team member/etc!

So we take great care to ensure the flowers we send around the Gold Coast are as good as can be! That the flowers match the description and photo as much as possible.

Fresh flowers every day

And because we buy in fresh flowers every day, we’re really proud of the flowers that get delivered in our specialty courier vans.

Even our couriers are selected based on the care they give the flowers and the feedback we receive. They go above and beyond to get the flowers to our customers in the best shape.

We’ve been surveying our customers (with an online survey) and have been thrilled to see comments like this from Patricia R of Romsey, UK (thanks Patricia!), today.

“…she is always really pleased with them.”

I am from the UK, and I order flowers from you online for my daughter in Elanora. It’s great to be able to do it, and she is always really pleased with them.”

Patricia R , Romsey, UK

If ordering online, know this:

That myself and the team have an absolute commitment to provide the best, freshest and most beautiful flowers every single time.

We’d love if you’d considered Fifth Avenue Florist for sending flowers to your Gold Coast family and friends, knowing we’ll do our very best for you and for them.

Kind regards

How to Keep your Flowers Fresh!

How to Keep your Flowers Fresh!

A step by step guide
By Fifth Avenue Florist

Step 1. First things first, choosing the right vase to transfer your flowers into. You don’t want the stems to be too tightly packed in a vase, they like to have a little bit of personal space. It’s very important to use a clean vase that is free from dirt, grime and any detergents. Scrubbing it out with only water is best for longer lasting flowers.

Step 2. The second step you’re going to want to take is… you guessed it, fill your vase with water. Make sure the water is always room temp and there is enough water in the vase to submerge all the stems of your flowers. Now before you go putting the flowers in the vase, you’re
going to want to check that no leaves are going to be touching the water. If they are, remove them. Otherwise they will turn slimy and promote all sorts of bad bacteria growth. Meaning bye, bye flowers. Side Note: When receiving delivered flowers from us at Fifth Avenue Florist we always put a water bag on the bottom to keep them fresh. And if you purchase in store, we’ll always offer a water bag if the flowers are going to be out of water for a while.

Step 3. The placement of your flowers in your home is very important if you want them to last longer. You don’t want to have them in any direct sunlight or near any heat sources. You also want to keep them away from any draughts like ceiling fans.

Step 4. When it comes to changing the water for your flowers you should do it every few days (Remembering to only use fresh water to clean out the vase and room temperature water to refill it). Before putting the flowers back in their fresh water give the stems a little trim by cutting them on an angle. This helps the flowers ability to absorb the water better. Make sure to use clean sharp scissors and remove
any dead flowers and foliage. The key to longer lasting flowers is all about minimising bacterial growth.

Step 5. Last but not least, have fun with styling the flowers in your vase and enjoy longer lasting beauty!

Plants… they are simply the ultimate accessory!

A Few Relatable Questions…

Are you missing something in your life, something to liven you up?
Are you feeling somewhat stressed and/or down?
Are you having a hard time concentrating?
Do you feel like you haven’t inhaled fresh air in a while?
Are you feeling a little lonely or in need of a companion?

If you answered YES to any of these questions read below!!!

Picture this… You’re walking down Fifth Avenue in Palm Beach. You’re on your way to grab that much needed morning coffee with a lot on your mind. Then you pass it. You stop right in your tracks and stare at it through the window as is stares right back at you. That’s it. It’s just what you’re missing. All you need is right there.

IT’S A HOUSEPLANT!

Beckoning YOU from within the shop front of Fifth Avenue Florist

Now bear with me.

You’re probably thinking What!! A houseplant, do I need one of these in my life?!? I don’t have time or the patience to care for a living plant. How much is this going to cost me? Do I want dirt inside my house? Plants are for outdoors only.

But seriously, you need one of these in your life!

Majority of houseplants are super low maintenance! They will bring life into your home and help you breathe easier (literally). Plants have the amazing ability to remove harmful toxins from the air that you might not know you even have and improve your air quality. Studies have proven that plants can reduce stress and improve overall mental health giving you an all round feeling of wellbeing. Not only are plants inexpensive, contrary to what people think, it’s a small investment to pay for the variety of benefits. Who’s wining here, you are!!

You can place household plants basically anywhere inside your home. Sit them on shelves, tables or a window sill. Hanging from walls, draping down or climbing up. Large ones to brighten the darkest of corners or weird ones for conversation pieces. You can have fun by matching them with different colours and styles of pots. It’s true, there’s something about caring for a living houseplant that can give you a sense of fulfilment and happiness. Watch it grow, to see it flourish and flower in all its glory.

And why stop there, enhance your workspace with living indoor plants. They’ll benefit your work environment too! Having plants around has been known to help with your concentration and improve productivity. They can also help to create a quiet and tranquil workspace by absorbing sound. More the better to allow you to smash out that work without distractions.

Each plant has a different set of beneficial properties. Here are a few we have in store below:

Monstera.

  • As the name suggests this plant can grow MASSIVE so if you want to stay small we suggest you keep it in a smaller pot or if not, you have been warned!
  • The Monstera is one of the most affective house hold plants for reducing air pollution
  • Regardless of its size, this huge plant only needs moderate watering
  • The holes in the plant’s leaves that give it its nickname -Swiss Cheese- come as the leaf ages

Peperomia.

  • Clearly one of the cutest little house plants
  • The peperomia only needs to be watered when the soil is dry to touch
  • It’s a slow growing house plant that needs hardly any maintenance
  • The peperomia is safe for pets if they decide to have a little nibble. Your pets only need to worry about your reaction once you’ve found out what they have done
  • This little plant thrives off loving neglect <3

Ivy

  • This plant is most commonly seen growing on the sides of buildings but it is even better indoors
  • Ivy is super easy to grow and has a beautiful carefree nature
  • Not to mention it stays green all year
  • One major benefit of ivy is it can reduce the amount of mold spores in the home (perfect for a bathroom)
  • For best results ivy likes a little indirect light to grow and thrive

Pothos

  • Pothos is one of the easiest indoor plants to grow making it another low maintenance plant
  • It can survive in low light and drought like conditions but with slow growth
  • This great plant has even made it on the list of heart shaped indoor plants for its leaves (it just wants to love you)
  • You can train the Pothos to grow on almost anything, have it trailing down or climbing up your walls

Bromeliad

  • This stunning plant produces bright flowers that can come in a variety of different colours
  • Get one of these and it will bring a tropical feel into your home
  • We like to think of them as a low maintenance roommate (if only they’d pay you rent, I guess the company will have to do)

Rubber leaf ficus

  • This particular plant is bred for its toughness
  • It will survive in less light than most plants and can handle under watering better than over watering
  • We suggest the Rubber leaf Ficus as a good starter plant for beginners
  • This indoor plant also has air purifying qualities like many others helping you breathe easier

We have many varieties of houseplants in store just pop in and ask our lovely staff about which plant is best suited for you! Though we do advise you to be careful, as indoor plants are addictive. Start with one green leafy friend and soon you will be living in an indoor jungle. So, what are you waiting for? Your very own houseplant is awaiting your selection!
