Although the bustling South Island city of Christchurch was devastated by a series of earthquakes in recent years, the Kiwi spirit of resilience and optimism has proven itself once again and today Christchurch is back in a big way. One of the greatest indicators of the resurgence of a metropolitan city is its success in tertiary, or luxury, industries. The tourist dollar in New Zealand still reigns supreme, and visitors to Christchurch today can enjoy the clean, crisp air and delicious New Zealand wines for which Christchurch is famous. Another tertiary industry that is currently thriving in the city of Christchurch is floristry, and there’s no better time than now to pick up some beautiful flowers in Christchurch for your loved ones or to add some fragrance and natural beauty to your home.
Florists, the professionals who arrange and sell flowers and flower arrangements, tend to be a versatile bunch. Charmed Flowers, a florist based in Christchurch, offer flowers and flower arrangements for every occasion, including birthdays, as means of congratulations or thanks, and, of course, as gifts for your loved ones. A gift of flowers never goes astray, and for more sombre occasions such as funerals or as a sympathetic gift, you can consider lilies or other subdued, respectful flowers. You can even send “get well soon” flowers to sick friends and family members, brightening their days with colourful petals and beautiful scents.
Floristry takes years of practice and expertise. A successful career as a florist requires a botanist’s skill with identifying and taking care of various plants as well as an artist’s eye for colour palettes and aesthetic value. Similarly, an expert florist’s familiarity with flowers will manifest in their ability to identify the various uses of certain plants. For example, throughout the British Commonwealth (of which New Zealand is a member), red poppies are used to commemorate fallen soldiers, particularly those who died in the First World War. It’s not uncommon for Kiwis to wear poppies on ANZAC Day to remember the brave men and women who died fighting for their country at Gallipoli. Florists provide, cultivate and arrange flowers in anticipation of special occasions such as ANZAC Day and Valentine’s Day with all the subtlety and finesse that their trade demands. Similarly, when you need flowers in Christchurch for a special occasion such as a wedding, funeral or religious ceremony, you can consult the advice of a florist such as Charmed Flowers, who will be able to advise as to the appropriate flowers for your occasion.
Charmed Flowers actually goes beyond the call of duty of most florists and will deliver flowers to an address of your choosing, meaning that you can deliver flowers to anyone, anywhere in Christchurch. They’ll even deliver to outer Christchurch and surrounding suburbs for an additional fee, but for orders in excess of eighty dollars, you’ll be surprised to find that delivery is absolutely free. It’s never been easier to send and receive flowers in Christchurch than with free delivery of floral arrangements and bouquets.2016-02-18
