About Us

Flowers Of Southport was originally established in 1995, servicing primarily the Gold Coast Hospital in Southport CBD with New Baby and Get Well flowers, teddy bears & balloons.

Glynda and I purchased Flowers Of Southport in 2012, widening the focus and range to include flower bouquets and arrangements suitable for Corporate, Weddings & Events, Birthdays, Romance, Gift Baskets, Funeral and Sympathy flowers.  We continue to offer FREE delivery to the Gold Coast Hospital and widened this to include ALL hospitals on the Gold Coast (Pindara Private Hospital, John Flynn Hospital, Tweed Hospital, Gold Coast Private Hospital – formerly Allamanda, and Robina Hospital).  We also now do not only Same Day delivery Gold Coast, but also recently introduced an “Urgent Delivery” service for customers wishing to have their order created and delivered within 2 hours of their order (during business hours, Monday to Friday.

We pride ourselves that all our florists have been formally TAFE trained and have then gone through further training on-site with Glynda to ensure they meet our high standards.

Opening Hours

Monday – Friday 8.30am to 5pm (subject to change at short notice)

Our Background

Glynda originally came from a large corporate background, and was increasingly frustrated by the time she was 40.  Following serious health issues, Glynda decided to follow her true passion, resigned from her job and went back to college to retrain for a new career.  With Glynda’s love of all things creative, as she is also an artist, Glynda built The Lilac Tree Wedding & Events Florist from scratch, commencing that in 2009.  As the business grew due to awards being given for her floristry designs and customer care from the Australian Bridal Industry Association Awards, Glynda wished to expand the floristry to also widen her range into retail arrangements and bouquets, as well as Funerals and Corporate Designs.

Therefore we purchased Flowers Of Southport, and I came into the business as well full time as Manager, as my strengths were needed in organisation and details, whereas Glynda being creative is not so strong on that side of business!  We were all ecstatic when we won the “Best Retail Florist Gold Coast” voted by Hot Tomato Radio listeners and mygc.com.au website subscribers.

As the Gold Coast Hospital moved, and the introduction of the light rail required the removal of onstreet parking outside in Nerang Street, Southport, we made the decision, when our lease was coming to an end in the Pacific Private Hospital, to relocate our premises.  We are now approximately 5 minutes drive south in the ground floor of a beautiful old Queenslander built in 1898, at 61 Meron Street, Southport, with ample free parking out the front.

Our Range

We have continued to expand our range, and Glynda likes to change the designs on the website approximately every 4 months, so that we don’t have the same things all the time, which can be boring for customers to select from.  With the larger premises, we have also been able to take on a larger amount of Corporate, Hotel and Wedding work, with large bold striking designs, to give the impact our clients wish to have.

Customer Options – tailored or quick purchase options & improved accessibility

With our retail range, we are also now able to offer walk in customers the luxury of either choosing from our instore range of freshly made bouquets or arrangements, or selecting the colours and exact flowers from our flower fridge, so that we make up something to their exact requirements, whilst they relax on our sofas in the shop area for the 5 – 15 minutes it takes, depending on the size & intricacy of the design they want made.  We also have a fully responsive website with shopping cart, live chat, facebook page, so that our customers can always find more information when needed, especially with latest offers.  We offer a newsletter which is emailed regularly with the first “bite” on special offers – sign up to this gives you one free delivery – just call us once you have signed up and we will give you the special code word!  We also of course still take phone orders as well s orders for customers who wish to come into the shop.
