weddings

I’m getting overwhelmed with all the planning, what’s the next step and can you give me an idea of what to allocate to my floral budget?

First, boil the kettle and grab yourself a tea and bikkie. Second, fill out a few simple details about your wedding here and we will send you our very own Wedding Step Guide. It has some starting prices of our most popular items and also guides you through the Garden Graffiti process from our initial consultation leading up to your wedding day.

I’m keeping it small and simple, can you still do my flowers?

We love that you haven’t forgotten about what the day is truly about. We do have a minimum spend of $1500 for our weddings to ensure we spend quality time on each couple. If it’s a few bouquets and buttonholes that you’re after, then look at our online bouquets, we can modify them into a bridal shape for you.

Do you offer set up and pack down of our reception venue?

We sure do! We are a full floral design service so we take care of everything from cake flowers to cleaning off the candle wax of those holders the day after.

Does that mean you offer table styling + decor items for large areas?

We currently offer table styling for our weddings, however for larger areas we partner with some fantastic event hire companies and wedding stylists. Let us know what you have in mind, and we can refer you to our many industry contacts.

But my wedding is at the Gold Coast/Sunshine Coast, can you still be our florist?

Of course! There will be a delivery fee charged accordingly, but if we stop for a swim on the way back and have a Yatala pie or see the otters at Australia Zoo, then maybe that can be negotiated a little.

I have so many more questions!

Not to worry, just email us at hello@gardengraffiti.com.au and we’ll be happy to answer some more.

workshops

I’m desperately wanting a unique learning experience, when is your next workshop?

We have had our last workshop for 2018 but we are planning more for 2019, so stay tuned! If you sign up to our floral newsletter you will be the first to know about new workshop dates!

But what if I want to have you all to myself?

Not too worry, we also travel to you and your friends and teach floral workshops. We do flower crowns, bouquets, tablescapes, pedestal arrangements, wiring, dog collars, you name it! Just get in touch with your request!

Oh no! I think my friend mentioned she’s going home early/is away on business/just been swooped by magpies in October!

It’s ok, things happen. Just let us know as soon as possible if there is a change in the delivery plans and we will do our best to accommodate. If the recipient isn’t home on delivery we will call them and ask for instructions, then we’ll call you if they aren’t answering, then we will make a judgement call on whether it is safe to leave the florals. If we think not, then we will take it back to the studio and try again the next day and this may incur another delivery fee.

How will my ultra special bouquet be wrapped?

No matter which of our lovely bouquets you choose, we take the utmost care in making sure they are looking their absolute finest at the point of delivery. First, we aqua pack the stems (code for travelling in a bubble of water) then fold tissue paper, embossed kraft paper and fine textured weave wrap around the bouquet for protection and just because it looks amazing. No hot pink cellophane for us, thank you very much! Your florals will then sit in a bouquet bag so whomever they are gifted to can easily transport them home - and they will always stay fresh in the special water bubble we learnt how to make in London!

But I can barely keep my plants alive, how on earth do I look after delicate flowers?

OMG you lucky thing you! Firstly, congrats, the person you have in your life who gifted these to you is a keeper, we are sure of it. But take a deep breath, we can go through this together. Firstly rule 101, even though flowers use the sun for photosynthesis to produce their food, that’s only when they are growing! Once cut, flowers like to be in a cool, shady environment, so place them somewhere away from direct sunlight and heat (if possible, we do know it’s Queensland!)

Take your florals out of the beautiful wrapping, re-cut the stems (1 cm) on the angle under running water and place in a vase! Keep the tie around the base as it holds the flowers in shape. And now don’t try adding sugar or salt or whatever you mum said to put in; just clean, fresh water replaced every two days and cut the stems again while you’re there! You know with all that talent, you could be a florist.
