Our Flower Store in Taihape

About Blush Florist

It's a cute little flower shop, right on the Main Street of Taihape, been around for 8 years and going strong! Lots of people stop at our cool cafe's and pop in to pick up gorgeous fresh flowers on their way to or from their destination. On the corner of Hautapu St and Tui St, with free parking in town.

Taihape is smack bang in the middle of the North Island. What this means is that I can get flowers into all those little places that don't have their own florist. By the magic of awesome courier guys and a really dedicated rural post team who treat my (your) bouquets like precious cargo, your favourite people can have flowers at their doorstep on the same day you order them in most cases.

Like Ohakune, Waiouru, Raetihi, Hunterville, Turangi, Kuratau, Omori,Utiku, Mangaweka.........they deserve flowers too right!!

My awesome locals call in for a chat and inhale the fragrance that wafts down the street, I send their Interflora orders all around the world and put flowers together for their Mum's, Gran's, wives, besties, work buddies....you name it!

The flowers are usually always from our amazing New Zealand growers, sourced mostly from the Manawatu markets so they can be super fresh and beautiful for you. These flower growers know their stuff, the flowers have outstanding quality and lasting power.

Hey......it's not just flowers by the way! The giftware is always changing, I have the most amazing soaps from Blue Earth in Ashburton NZ, good enough to eat. Kearose candles, made locally in Whanganui with amazing fragrance, Seriously Good Chocolate's from Southland, and a great range of indoor plants for that extra long lasting gift, and great for blokes too.
There is a crazy array of vases, vessels, containers, jars, pots and baskets to put all the beautiful flowers into.

I've got soft toys too, for that brand new baby who's Mum you're sending flowers, too many to mention with all sorts of colours and designs, but super soft and cuddly, always.

 Please note: flowers are seasonal and all bouquets and arrangements are subject to availability but the best effort will be made to replicate the order with the best and freshest substitutions.

About Me:

Just a little something about me and what I'm passionate about!
For as long as I can remember I’ve been fascinated by all things floral. I took a big brave step to pursue my passion, got skilled up and purchased my wee shop.

I am in LOVE with flowers, the look, the texture, the colours, the SMELL!!! The way they can be put together to create a beautiful bouquet, and the memory flashbacks. The smell of Oriental Lilies is Christmas Day with my family , stock is like a cloud of cloves and deliciousness, like the smell of freshly cut grass it's spring with earlicheer and hyacinths.

I get all warm and fuzzy personally delivering flowers to people, it's so nice to see their faces light up and I try to do this as much as I can.
I adore all things Wedding. A lot! Honestly, I get a huge buzz delivering the wedding flowers and seeing the look on the brides faces, I love to chat about their ideas and get a kick out of seeing it all come together for their big day.
Every. Single. Time.

For real, I love what I do, and feel incredibly blessed that I get to make pretties for the loveliest of people every day....except Sundays...I love my family too!"
