Bloomex Australia Introduces 10 New Bouquets

Bloomex Australia, the fastest-growing florist in the nation, announced the introduction of 10 new bouquets for its customers today.

The new arrangements range in price from $69.95 AUD to $119.95. Some of the highlighted offerings include the “Strikingly Chic” bouquet, a vibrant assortment of Roses, Dahlias and Gerberas; the “Grass is Greener” bouquet, a colourful mixed bouquet with a gentle, spring-like colour palette; and the “Love’s Divine” arrangement, a stunning mix of red and white roses accented with fresh greens.

Brendan Dyke, Marketing Manager for the company’s Australian operations, said that many of the new offerings are on-trend and expected to become popular, best-selling  products.

“Our continued growth and success allows us to be responsive to the requests of our customers and tailor our new products towards them,” Dyke said. “We have some absolutely beautiful arrangements that we feel will really resonate with people’s tastes and become very successful additions to our product lines.”

Bloomex operates a production facility in Auburn, and the company services the cities and suburban regions of Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Brisbane.
