For the fellow flower addicted, and the lovely people picking up a bunch to make someone’s day (high five, you!), we’ve picked the florists in Singapore with spectacular style, online delivery and studios you can drop in on to pick up a bouquet… check out a few floral styling workshops while you’re at it!
For us, Charlotte Puxley’s wild style and mesmerising arrangements are the ultimate treat (just look at that scene above). Charlotte brought her signature boho bunches from London to Tiong Bahru, and is one of Singapore’s most coveted florists. Think English countryside meets the tropics: unexpected colour combinations, massive blooms, lush foliage, and wild beauty. And just saying: she was part of the team that created Kate Moss’ wedding bouquet. Lush.

Triceratops wins for the most fun floristry website we’ve come across so far! Choose your budget, then the recipient’s style and favourite colour, and away you go.

In the process, she discovered her natural talent for the art. Ching takes great pride in her ability to customise every one of her pieces to individual customers: check out the image gallery to see some of her amazing work.
