Order elegant bouquets in signature blue wrapping from this art deco flower shop on Macleay Street.
January 25, 2014
This Potts Point florist has changed hands over the years, but it's never lost touch with its local customers — and that's because the team here keeps things simple, elegant and exquisitely wrapped. The store's signature blue wrapping paper means if you're receiving a surprise gift, you often know where your flowers have come from before you've read the label. Dropping into the art deco Macleay Street store is a sensory overload — there are masses of colourful tulips, roses and potted orchids, as well as a selection of scented candles and botanical soaps from Ayu and Church Farm respectively.
For those shy of the experience of ordering a bouquet in person, Poho's online store guides you through tonal suggestions and variable pricing, depending on how much you're looking to impress. Whether you opt for natives, a sculptural arrangement or a specific colour palette, you'll see the price vary from $85 for a small bunch to $320 for something lavish. When you're not limited by budget, there are add-ons like handmade chocolates from Kakawa and bottles of Bollinger. Whatever you choose, Ed West and his team will provide the highest quality service they've become known for since taking it over in 2015.
