A new direction for Botanica Bird
by Andrea Martinello
Ahh 2020, what a crazy year to be a florist. The pandemic’s impact on the wedding industry as a whole is nothing short of devastating. We did what many wedding vendors did at the time, we recalibrated and changed direction to take our blooms to the people with #bbdelivery!
Now we’re in 2021, and amongst all the chaos that COIVD-19 is continuing to provide, we have a BB Baby on the way! That’s right, our founder, Rachael’s little bump is due in December.
This means Botanica Bird is stepping into the family-friendly chapter of the business to create a sustainable work/life balance that can withstand snap lockdowns while continuing to support the local community.
A farewell to wedding florals for Botanica Bird
Weddings have been a major part of Botanica Bird’s story from the very beginning. The wedding industry was Rachael’s first foot in the door as a budding florist and has continued to be a source of happiness and creativity throughout the years.
We’re very grateful for this time in our business adventure, but it’s time to take a step back and re-centre ourselves at home.
NOTE* We are still fulfilling all currently booked wedding couples floral dreams. Bring on our 2021/2022 weddings - we are going to be closing this chapter with a bang!
This next page in our chapter is an exciting one and we think you’ll love it as much as we do!
There are some exciting things happening at BB HQ: we’ll soon be welcoming the tiniest and cutest member of the BB team AND we get to grow our engagement with the wonderful Newcastle community by brightening your homes and workspaces with our six signature bunches!
More BB Deliveries and Corporate displays
Bunches delivered to your door
Every one of our blooms are 100% Australian grown, meaning your bunches will feature seasonal blooms grown by Australian flower farmers and freshly picked from the Sydney Flower Markets.
The delivery wrapping is 100% compostable. They’re wrapped in kraft paper, bound with Australian cotton cord, wet wrapped in compostable sleeves and stickers.
We deliver our six iconic bunches to all City of Newcastle Council suburbs every Wednesday through to Friday. Please note that our delivery service is completely contactless and only available to residential addresses.
Brightening local workplaces
We LOVE working with businesses to design floral arrangements for corporate and PR events or workspaces! Having a BB Corporate Display will bring that WOW factor to your professional space and have a lasting impression on your staff and clients.
We work with local businesses to help enhance their brand and the vision of the event to life through the language of local and sustainable flowers.
Our flower arrangements cater to all types of corporate and PR events. From opening nights, product launches, seminars and conferences, Christmas parties and more!
We’ll see you around town!
You’ll be seeing a lot more of Botanica Bird’s flowers at your doorstep, at your favourite restaurant, at work, Christmas parties and even at your hairdressers.
We’re thrilled to bring the Newcastle community along with us as we turn a page in this new and exciting chapter. Over these few weeks in lockdown, we’ve been humbled with the amount of support received from people ordering our bunches.
They say that a picture speaks a thousand words, but we know that now more than ever, a bunch of flowers can mean a whole lot more. Thank you for choosing us to bring light and happiness into yours, and your loved one’s lives because this is where we want to be.
