HOME: Spring Florals with The Flower Bar Bangalow

IN A STATELY HERITAGE-LISTED BUILDING IN THE GORGEOUS BYRON HINTERLAND VILLAGE OF BANGALOW IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FLOWER SHOP.

It assaults the senses in every which way when you walk through the door.  It’s the sweet, sweet fragrances, the visual abundance of colour, shapes and textures, the feel of soft, velvety leaves that invite a sneaky touch as you walk past and so much more. 

The Flower Bar Bangalow is one of The Bower’s top picks for unique, fresh and dried flowers as well as statement grasses such as bold Pampas or striking palm or monstera fronds.  Their delightful array of flowers arrive fresh in everyday from local growers and markets, and the choices are simply divine. We’re regular visitors not only for their flowers, but statement vases, selection of gifts and homewares too, and sometimes we’ve been known to drop in just to see how beautiful their exquisite displays look and snaffle some ideas for home!

The girls at The Flower Bar have given us a few tips for Spring florals.

Top blooms for Spring: poppies, hydrangea, snowball and lilacs.

Favourite colour combos: we love all colour but the main hues we love are deep burgundies, muted browns, apricots and plums.

Creating a simple bouquet at home: just a mass of one type of bloom is lovely or a put together a clutch of romantic, vintage hues and flowers or even a bouquet of flowers you’ve dried yourself – lavenders, grasses, tea tree, natives

Top tip for keeping flowers alive longer at home: it’s super simple.  Cut the stems on an angle and change the water daily.

We loved the Christmas wreath The Flower Bar created for us last year, and it could well be worth your while to take a trip out to Bangalow from your Bower accommodation to tap into one of their wreath-making workshops.  We promise you it’ll be worth the visit!
