The Loving Touch With Karen Hill Floral Design

Reserve your beautiful blooms early this Valentine’s Day, with this local family business, Karen Hill Floral Design, which will be fully stocked and ready to supply everyone with bespoke and custom floral arrangements and bouquets.

With Karen’s roses most popular, this highly-respected local florist recommends getting orders in early to ensure your loved ones receives the flowers they deserve this Valentine’s Day.

“My roses are coming from South America, they are very big and beautiful,” Karen explained.

“I find the import roses are much stronger in the stems, double the amount of petals and, a bonus for us florists, no thorns!”

However, Karen also stocks a wide variety of Australian natives.

“I highly recommend our Australian natives as well; they will be amazing. We always sell out and numbers will be limited. So, get in early for these!”

With 2024 being Karen’s 36th Valentine’s Day as a florist, she is more than ready to cater for and create the most perfect floral arrangement.

“The reason I do what I do is because I love the emotional side of the business,” she explained.

“I get to put my troubles aside and focus on making other people happy. As a third-generation florist, master florist, I'm able to come to work and make a difference on many levels for your loved ones.”

“I absolutely love what I do, the smiles and gratitude is overwhelming sometimes, that's the reason I'm here and the reason I'm your community florist first.”

Karen also has great range gifts, including candles, lotions, and diffusers, which add a little something extra to the bouquet.

“All this and much more are online at until sold out. And I must stress, we will sell out so get in early!”
