We turn your special blooms into beautiful, everlasting keepsakes.

Each flower and foliage is handled and careful preservation processes. The flowers are tidied, dried and/or pressed and then designed. Each one is uniquely created and transformed into a gorgeous new art form. Each step cannot be rushed and have various completion times. 

Please note that the frames we use are the best commercial frames currently available, however they are not custom made frames and as such there may be common imperfections that come with commercial frames that are beyond our control. Please get in touch if you would like to have a custom made frame for your preservation, but please be aware that this could double/triple the price.

  • CAN I SELECT WHICH FLOWERS ARE SENT?
    Unfortunately, no. APR is unlike a traditional store front Florist and therefore cannot meet each individual need as such. You can be assured however that APR will do whatever it takes to provide a beautiful end product.
  • I WANT TO SEND FLOWERS ON THE WEEKEND, CAN YOU HELP?"
    My typical delivery days are Wednesday to Friday, however there may be a slight possibility that I can help you, provided there is enough notice. You can contact me here to double check.
  • WHEN IS THE ORDER DEADLINE & WHEN WILL MY ORDER BE DELIVERED?
    Delivery and pick up days are Wednesday to Friday, unless otherwise pre-arranged. For same day delivery, orders close by 4pm. There will be a banner on the product page with the words SOLD OUT with the corresponding date if it's unavailable. You can also contact me here to double check. Orders processed as same day delivery but that are made on or after 4pm will be delivered the next day, unless pre-arranged with me. To keep the price of my blooms as they are I take the most efficient route and therefore am unable to always fulfill timed deliveries. Residential addresses: between 8am-7pm; Everywhere else: between 9am-5pm. An email will be sent to let you know your order is on its way. Please check delivery areas to ensure delivery to your area. If you're sending something to a secure apartment please check that someone will be home, as a $10 fee is charged to you if I need to re-deliver. Alternatively you can provide a time they will be home in the comment sections provided and I will work this into my schedule.
  • WHAT IF I WANT TO SEND SOMETHING TO A SECURE APARTMENT OR NO-ONE IS HOME?
    SECURE APARTMENT If you wish to send an order to a secure apartment you will need to ensure someone will be home to receive thier order. If nobody is home, a $10 fee will be sent to you if I need to re-deliver. To avoid this, you can provide a time they will be home and I will work my schedule around that time. OTHER RESIDENCES If no one is home, I will find a secure, shady spot near the door. Fresh flowers are packed in water and will be fine to be left somewhere safe until someone comes home.
  • WHAT IF I HAVE GIVEN THE WRONG ADDRESS OR THE PERSON IS NO LONGER AT THE ADDRESS GIVEN?
    Please ensure that I am provided with the correct address, including the unit or apartment number if applicable. I am relying on you to be as accurate as possible to ensure a smooth delivery. If I am given the wrong address and am unable to deliver your order, I will charge a $10 re-delivery fee to send it out again that day or the next trading day.
  • HELP! THERE’S A PROBLEM WITH MY ORDER! WHAT CAN I DO?
    The best way to handle this is to call me on 0404 589 087 if it's urgent. Alternatively, you can contact me here. I’ll do my best to accommodate to your change but because I operate on super-quick turn-around times this may not always be possible and I really need 24-hour’s notice to change an order. For any cancellations, 50% of the total amount will be refunded to make up for losses, which are hard to ascertain.

Please note:

APR is in no way responsible for the condition your flowers arrive in. It is imperative that you carefully follow all care/delivery steps to ensure it reaches APR in the best condition possible. Sending a clear image of your flowers beforehand is recommended if you’re unsure of their suitability. Your flowers will be assessed on arrival and if they are deemed unusable, unfortunately a replica may need to be made (extra charges apply) or proceeding further will be halted. Please note that the $150 deposit is non-refundable.
