I haven’t met a girl yet that is willing to admit she doesn’t like receiving flowers from someone special. Flowers are that luxury gesture that we all secretly need in our lives every now and then, but they can be so darn expensive to buy all the time. The good thing is that gone are the days where the only place to buy decent flowers was the local florist retailer, major supermarkets or dodgy petrol stations. Flowers are now everywhere and far more affordable and convenient. That’s where I, and many other online florists, come into the industry. Hudson Floral Couture was established on the back of the belief that cost, should not be such a barrier when we want to give someone special that warm and bubbly feeling through flowers. Spoiling yourself with flowers shouldn’t seem like an extravagant indulgence.
Hudson Floral Couture has jumped on the online daily flower idea by creating Hudson Daily Blooms. Our Motto is: “Premium, Affordable and Convenient”. We are not the only online florists out there, and we don’t pretend to be either. But our passion for flowers, what they can do, and how they can make you feel, has motivated us to impact every one of our customers with our gorgeous bespoke floral designs.
Flowers have such a beautiful way of telling someone just what they mean to you. Different flowers and bouquet designs can convey different messages; I love you; I’m thinking about you; I hope you’re OK. The history of the meaning of flowers dates back hundreds of years. Mid-1700s Turkey florists put meanings to all types of flowers they had access to. French and English travellers through the area took these meanings home with them. In the Victorian-era, a time where people did not believe in expressing any sort of emotion, they found the language of flowers as an acceptable form of expressing themselves. During this time, the emphasis was on which flowers were picked, and how they were given, to express the right meaning to the receiver. An example of this was that sometimes flowers were given upside down, with the intent of conveying hatred or distaste. Moving forward to today we have progressed in so many ways, including finding it acceptable for women to give men flowers (but let’s be real – they are mainly for our enjoyment). The biggest transformation I have seen however, is how we buy our flowers. When we want to order, how we want to order, and where we want to deliver, has never been so easy.
I’m certainly not saying to ignore all of the beautiful florist shops out there, because there are some amazing local florists producing gorgeous flowers right around the corner. I’m more or less celebrating the fact that “us flower lovers” now have choice. We can buy flowers from our lounge rooms or our offices. We can buy flowers last minute or well in advance. Hudson Floral Couture wants to make purchasing flowers easier for everyone.
If you haven’t ordered a daily bloom online already, Give it a go! Treat yourself or a loved one to one of our beautifully crafted bouquets. Flowers online can start from as little as $35, including delivery in Brisbane. And don’t worry – unlike in the Victorian-era we guarantee to deliver your Hudson Daily Blooms up-right!
