Northside Flower Market

Northside Flower Market has long been recognised as one of Brisbane’s premier florists, celebrating important life and love moments – celebrations. A local family-owned business run by husband and wife Kim Dodwell and Brendan Nolan, they source their roses from the best local growers and international suppliers, ensuring freshness, quality and vase life.

Northside Flower Market’s top tips for romance

1. Order your flowers in advance – do not wait until the last minute, as many florists will have limited supply later in the day.
2. Organize your flowers to be delivered in the morning – getting flowers at the start of the day makes a woman feel remembered.
3. Sign your name in your message card – it will be kept and cherished and actually makes the gesture more romantic.
4. Make sure you know your loved one’s favourite colour and flowers – personalisation will make a difference, trust us!
5. Do small romantic gestures often, not just once in a blue moon. Everyone loves to feel loved and appreciated, and sometimes being reminded of this is just what your partner needs.
6. Make time to spend with your special someone – a walk to the park, treat yourselves to an evening at the cinema (without the kids), pizza on the deck with candles and fairy lights, and always flowers – you can never give or send too many flowers.
