We’ll spare you the long-winded diatribe that’s more boring than reading a dictionary from cover to cover. We know you want your flowers fresh and you want them fast. Well, here are some fresh and fast facts that will tell you who we are, what we do and why we do it. Kick back, have a read and get to know us!

So, who are we?

Delivery across AustraliaWe’re an Aussie owned and run company that’s been around since 1999. We’re passionate about flowers and about great service. We initially started with two florist stores (one in Sydney CBD, and one in Melbourne CBD) but we had so much success with our bright and creative flower arrangements that we decided to expand. Around this time, technology advanced and the ability to order flowers online revolutionised the florist marketplace. And why not? Why would you sit in traffic and wait in a queue to order flowers when you can do it all online with a couple of clicks? The convenience and ease of ordering a flower delivery online definitely suits us in this fast paced modern climate, and the decision to expand and include other florists in the Fast Flowers brand proved to be a successful one. We’re now one of the most recognised and trusted florist businesses in the country.

Today, our flower delivery network covers most of Australia, and we have partnered with real brick and mortar florists who we speak with regularly and know personally. That’s one of the things that sets us apart in this industry. So what are some of the other things that set us apart, you ask? Let’s just put out there -

What makes us different:

  • We don’t send your orders to random florists in an area with no regard to quality
  • We don’t forget about our florists once they’ve joined the network- in fact, we speak to them on a regular basis and know them personally
  • We don’t take huge chunks of commission like some competitors- we look after our florists
  • We don’t have dodgy customer service practices like some competitors- our Australian based customer service reps are always willing to help
  • We don’t invite thousands of florists to our network like other competitors and we don’t have multiple florists servicing ONE suburb

Our Melbourne floristThis is part of the reason why we’ve grown so popular in Australia. We’re the real deal. We pounded the pavements, boarded the planes and drove the roads that led us to the best florists in the country. After seeing their talent for ourselves, we then invited them to come and hang out under the exclusive Fast Flowers banner.

And because we like to keep our network tight, we can guarantee quality. One florist caters to their neighbourhood, which means you’re getting a local who knows the area. So no matter where you are, we’ll give you access to the greatest florists in the country. It’s that simple.

What’s so great about Fast Flowers?

Let’s get hypothetical. Say it’s your sister’s birthday and she lives on the other side of the country. She loves the colour red, so you figure you’ll send a big bunch of red roses and show off how thoughtful you are. There is only one thing standing in your way- you have no idea which florists in her suburb are reputable and which are mediocre. Because flowers are an emotional gift, you really don’t want to risk flowers being delivered to her on her special day that:

a) resemble dead weeds
b) look like they’ve time travelled from the 80’s, 
c) appear to have been trampled by an elephant.

That is where we come in. We’ve done all the hard work of finding a fantastic florist for you. Simply head over to our website or call 1300 FAST FLOWERS from anywhere in Australia. Tell us what you need and when, and we’ll handle it for you.

Why are flowers so popular?

Sending fresh flowers is undoubtedly the best way to say “I love you”or “Happy Birthday!” Not only does your selection of flowers showcase your imagination and caring side, it sends your feelings in a fragrant, fantastic package. Obviously, the best part is when your special someone is surprised by their unexpected delivery. We asked a few of our staff why they love sending/receiving flowers. Here’s what they said:

“When I get flowers it makes me feel so loved. Especially if they’re delivered at work. I become the envy of the office and all the girls want to know who they’re from. It’s an awesome feeling” says Kelly in Accounts.

“When someone sends me flowers, it totally brightens my day. You never expect them so it just makes you really happy” says Meg in the Customer Service Team.

“I love sending flowers to my girlfriend. She never knows when I’m going to send them, so when they arrive she gets so happy and excited and calls me telling me how loved she feels. It’s a great feeling to know I’m responsible for making her feel so good” says Justin in Graphic Design.

“I sent roses to my mum on Mothers day. She was in tears because they were so nice. I felt chuffed knowing I made her day” says Matt in IT.

For thousands of years, people have agreed that flowers are the best way to send well wishes, declare love, celebrate a special occasion or simply show you care. Why stop now?

So, how does it work?

We lay all of our awesome products out for you on our website. What you see is what you get. Our selection of arrangements have been personally designed by us and we have over 70 floral arrangements for you to choose from. Once you’ve made your selection, simply click the ‘buy now’ button and in mere minutes your order of flowers will be crafted. This is how we do it:

It only takes 5 minutes to organise a flower delivery. It really is that easy.

But I’m on a budget...

Relax! We believe that you shouldn’t have to pay an arm and a leg to buy an impressive bouquet. Have a look at our ‘Under $70’ range. Our flowers might be inexpensive but we don’t sacrifice quality. We have a single long-stemmed rose in a presentation box, hand-tied bouquets of vibrant Singapore orchids, bouquets of roses in a palette of bright and bubbly colours, and attention-grabbing lilies. We even have a balloon bouquet for you if you want something a little different. When finance is a consideration, rely on us at Fast Flowers. We’ll create an awesome gift for you that looks a million dollars and deliver it straight to the door of your recipient.

How fast is delivery?

We offer same day delivery for all orders received before 2pm on weekdays, and 10am on Saturdays. We offer express delivery in most metro areas as well. If you place your order before 2pm, your flowers will be delivered before 5pm at the very latest for a business address, and 6pm for a residence. Our flat rate for delivery is $11.95 with no hidden charges. How’s that for fast and fresh service?

How fresh are we talking?

We only use fresh flowers in our arrangements. No mediocre flowers make it into our floral gifts. Some florists store their stock for days on end instead of sourcing fresh flowers regularly. Not us. We use stems that are cut fresh and choose to source them from local growers and wholesalers. We support local produce and our community as opposed to importing second rate blooms. Fresh flowers look better, smell better, and last much longer. It’s the quality that you deserve and it’s the quality we’re known for.

What does our gift range offer?

We have a variety of great gift choices right here at your fingertips. From a bunch of bright flowers to a potted plant or balloon bouquet, we have everything you need to mark a special occasion. We also offer great add-on gifts like scrumptious chocolates, soft teddy bears, and celebratory champers. If you’d like a great alternative to flowers, choose one of our hampers, filled with a range of gourmet nibbles, premium wine, beer, spirits, pamper products, chocolates and delicious sweets and treats.

Who do I speak to to order flowers?

Sometimes its easier to call than order online, so give us a ring on 1300 FAST FLOWERS (1300 327 835). Our head office is in Brisbane, and our staff are flower savvy, friendly consultants who can assist you with everything from choosing the perfect gift and taking your order, to helping you out with anything post delivery.

We’re real people who actually care and we know all about flowers because we love them! We’ll assist you in choosing carnations for your mother because they represent maternal love. We’ll help you choose bright and festive gerberas to celebrate the birthday of a special young girl in your life. We’ll help you out when you need to send a bereavement arrangement but are at a loss of what is appropriate to send.

We’ll help you select the perfect bouquet for your partner, making sure it is imaginative and suited to their personal tastes. We’ll even help you write your card message.

We love hearing that the flowers you sent were a success, so drop us a line at customerservice@fastflowers.com.au to let us know how your flower delivery was received.
