  • Christmas Bush Care and Handling Tips

    We are excited to see the return of the always favourite at this time of year the Australian Christmas Bush. At Boydita Flowers Delivered  at our Fountain Plaza Erina store we will have bunches available as from Monday 10th to celebrate the Christmas season. Christmas bush can last even longer if you follow a few simple tips we have listed below.

    Botanical name: Ceratopetalum gummiferum

    Common Name : Christmas Bush

    What to do:

    Keep slightly damp by misting,Christmas Bush appears to take up water better through the flowers and foliage rather than by the stems.

    Re-cut the stems before placing in water.

    Use a preservative  in the water.

    Keep cool and out of sunlight and draughts.

    Mist regularly.

    Here are some Web links to  expand your knowledge on the truly Australian Christmas Bush.

  • Would You like to become a Florist????

    If you are looking for a career that provides an outlet for your creative flair,then floristry may be for you. Florists design and create bouquets and  floral arrangements for many different occasion's,such as the birth of a child, a birthday ,anniversary, get well wishes or to honour people on occasion's such as funerals. Many people just love to have flowers in their office or home.

    What Does A Florist do?

    A Florist daily duties include preparing and conditioning flowers so that they will last,creating bouquetsand arrangements,setting up shop displays as well as taking customers orders. Most people order via the telephone,but as online buying becomes increasingly popular, florist need to have computer skills

    To satisfy our customers florists  have to have good communication skills, they need to be able to translate their customers wishes into an  artistic floral design. Being able to manage the use of your time is also very important , as there is always delivery time frames to be met.

    Emotions are the main reason for customers buying flowers, which is why we as florists need to understand and consider carefully customers requests.

    Floristry is also hard on the hands, and physically demanding because you are on your feet for most of the time and you are required to lift heavy  flower filled containers and buckets.

    Working  days for a florist is generally 9-5 , this can  change from shop to shop. However at special times of the year such as Mothers Day, Valentines Day, Easter and Christmas, it is not unusual for florists to work through the night.

    Education

    There are no formal education requirements for entry into the floristry industry, however most retailers do prefer applicants to have completed Year 10. Entry level courses and traineeships are available through Tafe and some private providers. to become a fully qualified Florist, you need to complete a Certificate III in floristry. Certificate IV is also available for those who would like to own  or manage a shop.

  • Formal Flowers

    Professional Advice

    Our creative team of professionals can give you advice on the best choice for your formal flowers. We consider such details such as colour and dress style, accessories that will be worn. There are many ideas and possibilities for your formal flowers,just ask one of our friendly team for our advice.

    Wrist Corsage

    The Wrist corsage is by far the most popular at this current time. The wrist corsage should be optimally tuned to match your formal dress. At Boydita flowers Delivered we use a handcrafted wristlet to attach the flowers to giving a very individual look, flexibility in sizing and a lovely memento to keep in remembrance of the special occasion once the flowers have passed.

    Buttonhole

    A  Buttonhole is usually worn by the male and can be made to match the wrist corsage, making it an unforgettable experience with everything matching together. At Boydita Flowers Delivered we structure our buttonholes onto a buttonhole clip to make it easier to wear just like a badge.

    Selection of  flowers to use

    We like to keep the flowers and foliage's in proportion to the wristlet and person wearing them. Flowers such as Roses,Miniature Roses,Singapore Orchids, Alstroemaria, Hyacinths, Statice  and Babies Breath are all great choices with the addition of foliage's such as ming fern , asparagus fern, ivy leaves or Camellia leaves make a great compliment.
