Inspiring creativity with our floral artists

Flowers Vasette are proud to offer Melbourne’s finest quality floral designs, lovingly created at our creative studio in Port Melbourne. With an incredibly clever and highly-skilled team, we work tirelessly to bring excellent and exciting installations, always.

If you have ever wondered where all of the artistry happens, the answer is here, at our purpose-built creative studio. With the opportunity to work with the limitless potential of nature’s offerings, it’s no surprise that the home of Flowers Vasette is based here in Melbourne, Australia’s most liveable city.

At Flowers Vasette we are committed to championing the spectacle of nature, whilst continuing to push the boundaries of floral style and design.

It’s no understatement to say that we are constantly inspired by the abundant beauty surrounding us. With such a passionate and talented team, every day at Flowers Vasette simply gets better.

A day behind the scenes at Flowers Vasette

Three days a week, our experienced buyers meet at 2:30am at the flower market in Epping, Victoria. From here, they source a variety of the finest seasonal blooms and foliage that are to be brought back to Port Melbourne and used in each and every creation.

The van, filled to the brim with fresh flowers, soon makes its way back to the creative studio where our enthusiastic florists await. There are always gasps as the vehicle door rolls open.

And so begins the craft of floristry! As is the sheer delight of working with nature, no two market mornings are ever the same. The team at Flowers Vasette are forever flush with inspiration.

From simple en masse bouquets to grand-scale and opulent installations, our skills are always in practice and the creative brief, ever-changing.

We value every order as an opportunity to share the flair and joy we find in our exquisite blooms. From house arrangements to unforgettable events, know that every order placed with Flowers Vasette is treated with love and care – as every flower should be.
