Arch of celebration

Arch of celebration

We are so excited to announce our installation on Melbourne’s iconic architectural landmark, Flinders Street Station!

In line with Urban Blooms we are delighted to have been invited to create a flower encounter like no other.


Urban Blooms, a Spring floral concept running from Saturday 14 - 27 November 2020 was created in partnership with the City of Melbourne’s reopening and revival and Flowers Vasette is a proud partner, celebrating the return of resilient Victorians to their city.

The triumphal archways that populate the city, date back to 1901 and the arch of Flinders Street Station has stood as a site of public celebration, decorated to commemorate significant moments in Melbourne’s history including centenaries, achievements and visiting monarchs.


Flowers Vasette are honoured to be invited to amplify such an important and publicly recognised landmark with a fresh floral & foliage installation.

 This is also a wonderful opportunity for collaboration, particularly after the devastation of bush fires earlier this year and most recently the impact of Covid-19 on our industry.

We are overjoyed to be entrusted with the iconic and Internationally recognised Flinders Street Station location. We are pleased to bring together local growers and many of our long-standing suppliers to hero locally grown seasonal plants and flowers in an installation like no other.

Inspired by the colours of the building’s facade, the archway will showcase the beauty of Victoria’s flora, with an array of green foliage, accented with flowers in gold, red and yellow tones, sourced from local Victorian growers and Beechmont Garden Retreat, Flowers Vasette’s own expansive gardens situated in the Dandenong Ranges.


Showtech Australia have partnered with Flowers Vasette and will construct, engineer and install the impressive scaffold armature which will stand in front of the Flinders Street archway, the foundation for the floral concept which is our largest single installation to date.

We are pleased to gift the people of Melbourne a breathtaking and spectacular botanic archway in celebration of Victoria’s re-opening. Aiming to inspire the City of Melbourne, celebrating the iconic landmarks, laneways and boulevards in full bloom.

Urban Blooms xFlowers Vasette will be available to view from Saturday 14 - 27 November, 2020
Flinders Street Station, Melbourne City


Flowers Vasette will also have two limited edition arrangements available for purchase, in-store and online, that celebrate this iconic concept and inspired by the Flinders Street installation.
