Chocolate Flowers Made with Love

Have you heard the news? Flowers for Everyone are now selling edible chocolate flowers beautifully arranged to resemble a gorgeous arrangement of flower blooms. Except you can eat them.

Why are our edible flowers so fantastic? Not only are they designed and assembled by professional florists, these chocolate flower pots are made using beautiful quality chocolate.

Edible-Chocolate-Flower-Gift-Pink-and-Purple Edible-Chocolate-Flowers-Blue-and-Green

Our Belgian chocolate foil wrapped treats are made right here in Sydney using Callebaut chocolate. What is Callebaut chocolate you ask? Callebaut chocolate is produced by a Belgian couveture chocolate manufacturer that makes chocolate with a high cocoa butter content favoured by many gourmet and culinary professionals.

In other words, YUM.

Edible chocolate flowers make fabulous gifts for birthdays. They also make a super sweet romantic gesture, particularly if teamed with a long stem red rose, bottle of red wine or bubbles.

Hydrangeas on Manly’s Shelly Beach

Flowers for Everyone recently held a ‘Battle of the Florists’ among two of its retail stores. Our Balgowlah team had a beach theme with the design condition of incorporating ornamental kale.

The girls went all out, photographing their stunning floral arrangement on Manly’s Shelly Beach. Plenty of passers by stopped to comment on how gorgeous it was, but one of our Facebook fans took it a step further, and, after seeing the photo on our page, painted the most amazing still life of the flowers.

The original photo taken on Manly’s Shelly Beach, featuring ornamental kale, hydrangea, Scottish thistle, Eucalyptus foliage and monsteria leaves.

Curiousity piqued, we checked out Terri’s portfolio listed on Redbubble and were wowed. An accountant by day, Terri’s humble confession to art and textiles being a ‘sideline’ is understating her talent.

About Terri

How long have you been painting for?

I studied art at high school & part-time evening at TAFE (over 30 years ago, how embarrassing!). I started again 9 years ago after children etc & have really enjoyed being able to focus on painting again – mostly with pastels & oils.

How did you learn how to paint? 

I started back at art learning pastel painting with Bernard Devaux at Forestville Community Art Centre.  Bernard is a wonderful artist & our group at Forestville was great.  Since moving to Bonny Hills on the Mid north coast in December 2013, I’ve been painting with the Hastings Valley Fine Art Assoc & enjoy plain air (outdoors) painting on a Monday morning the most. We have a gallery in Port Macquarie overlooking Oxley Beach where I exhibit.

What is your favourite flower?

Roses are my favourite flower – doesn’t matter what colour, although I do like the old fashioned roses that have a beautiful perfume the best.

How can people buy your art? 

My original artworks are available from my home studio in Bonny Hills, as well as the Hastings Fine Art Gallery in Port Macquarie. Redbubble has a portfolio of paintings that are available as prints & other merchandise, with the descriptions indicating if the original has been sold.

Terri can be contacted via email at if you are interested in her work.

We are so glad Terri spotted our photograph on Facebook and took inspiration from it to produce such a gorgeous painting. Thanks Terri for sharing!

Autumn Flower Style Tips

Style your home with flowers and foliage in the tones of autumn.

Embrace the change of season and start making a shift from summer brights and whites to warm, soothing colours. You don’t need a huge budget to add fresh floral touches to your living space.

TIP: Bring your vase into your local florist shop. Give them your budget and ask for advice. A good florist will know what works best with your vase and which flowers and foliage provide excellent value for maximum impact.

Flowers and Foliage, Autumn Style

Cymbidium Orchids

Cymbidium orchids have already made their way into the Sydney flower market, indicating an impending change of season. They are not cheap, but are excellent value as they can last around two weeks (sometimes more) if their vase and water is kept clean and away from heaters or direct sunlight. Plus you only need one or two stems in the right vase (tall with a narrow opening) to create maximum impact.

Add a single sculptural leaf or stem of glossy green magnolia foliage with curly, tortured willow for drama and height, and voila! Guaranteed chic.

The variety of colours Cymbidium orchids come in are to die for! Pure white, chocolate, burnt orange, golden yellow, and burgundy are all perfect choices for bringing autumn indoors.

unspecified4 - Copy . orchids .

Fall Foliage and Berries

Nandina, silver dust, magnolia, oak and maple. Autumn-winter foliage and berries are absolutely gorgeous simply arranged en-mass in a vase without anything else. Let the leaves speak for themselves!

A vase that is straight up and down, or wider at the base than the top, is perfect for displaying foliage. The smaller opening at the top helps to make the vase appear ‘full’ with only three to five stems, and the extra width at the base enables you to angle the branches at varying degrees.

Florist shops sell all types of foliage by the stem or bunch. Most varieties are wonderfully long-lasting (providing you keep the water fresh and vase clean), and are excellent value for money. Fresh foliage = Fab feng shui! Your florist can even arrange the foliage properly so all you need to do is pop it in a vase when you get home.

Autumn Branches

Straight or wild, interesting sculptural branches are what autumn is all about. Style your home or office with autumn branches on their own or combined with fresh foliage. Particularly gorgeous if you have high ceilings to add a touch of drama!

You might want to try your hand at an ‘Ikebana-style’ floral design and place one exquisite, gnarly magnolia branch in an earthy pottery vase. Or get your hands on a quirky old alcohol bottle like the one pictured below and fill it with fabulous pussy willow.

You can purchase all kinds of interesting branches and sticks from your local florist!

Apothecary medicine jars are very vogue right now too, and the brown versions (new or vintage) are perfect for adding an ‘essence of autumn’ to your home. Split an inexpensive bunch of long lasting alstroemeria lilies in a series of jars as per below pic or group together in one big jar.

Farewell summer, it’s been fun, but we’re ready for you autumn!

And don’t forget, creating a stylish ‘vignette’ of autumn flowers for the home can be achieved on a budget. Keep your eye out at op shops and garage sales for vases in all shapes and sizes and bee line it to your local florist for helpful style advice.

Win a $250 Flowers Gift Voucher

Unleash your inner florist for a chance to win a $250 flowers gift voucher to purchase and/or deliver flowers anywhere in the Sydney metro.

Simply style your own bud vase with flowers and take a pic. Then either upload via the competition link below or follow us on Instagram and upload using the hashtag #innerfloristcomp

The picture with the most amount of votes will win!

For further details on how to enter and vote go to Entries close 8th January 2015!


A bud vase you say? What is a bud vase exactly? A bud vase has a small, narrow opening to fit one to three single flowers or foliage stems (or a miniature posy). The opening is usually no more than 5cm wide, thus restricting the amount of flower stems that will fit, and also enabling the single stem to be well supported.

Win a $250 flowers gift voucher just for putting a flower stem in a vase you say?

Yep, that’s correct. It may sound like a no-brainer, but the beauty of a bud vase and the thought that goes into styling it for a photo does take skill. Take a look at the work of Japanese Ikebana master Toshiro Kawase and you will see what we mean.

Perfection in a single stem and a bud vase by Toshiro Kawase

The Vase is as Important as the Flowers

Get creative with your bud vase. Scout op shops and garage sales or rummage through nanna’s kitchen cupboard. Use this as the basis of your design, then select your flower stem and/or foliage from there.

Getting the Photo Just Right

You may have a lovely bud vase arrangement but your picture lets you down. Instagram offers lots of lighting/colour effects but you still need to get the background and composition just right. Take a look at these examples below – whether you opt for a plain background or a scene set up with ‘props’ to create an overall look is up to you!
