We are a Sydney Florist with a retail store in Telopea since 2019, offering same day delivery of fresh and dried flowers across Sydney.
Our friendly flower shop can’t be missed thanks to the amazing mural we commissioned for the community to enjoy. The mural features our favourite native flowers and a giant red waratah, which is botanically known as a Telopea.
Telopea is conveniently situated between Oatlands, Carlingford, Dundas, Rydalmere and Ermington which allows us to deliver flowers to the broad areas of Parramatta, Ryde, Hills District, Northern Suburbs, Chatswood, Sydney CBD and beyond.
Posy & Twine Florist is located directly across the road from Telopea Light Rail Station. There is a free carpark behind the shop (just off Robert Street) and plenty of street parking.
We always have a fabulous array of fresh flowers, dried flowers, potted plants and giftware to tempt you.
Our design style is all about creating unique fresh and dried flower arrangements with stunning earth friendly wrapping that you can feel genuinely good about. The style, products and techniques used in-store have an earth friendly focus, removing the unnecessary use of green foam and plastics that is prevalent elsewhere in the industry. Even our signature wrapping is recyclable or compostable, all the way down to the compostable bags used to keep the flowers fresh. And of course, there’s the reusable twine or ribbon we use to tie off our bouquets.
We adore texture and abundance, so you can be assured that our arrangements will always be filled with lots of interesting elements. We are frequently delighted that customers comment on this point of difference.
MEET PENNY – BUSINESS OWNER
I am very inspired by colour and texture in the world around me. Given free reign, these are the elements of design that I am always drawn to first. This is probably due to spending 12 of my 20 years in the industry as a Wedding Florist, where whites and pastels dominated. Now owning a retail store, it’s a treat to have free reign and choose materials that I love. In recent years, I have been greatly drawn to native and dried botanical ingredients due to the textural impact they add to any arrangement.
Ten things about me:
- Originally gained a degree to be a Visual Arts Teacher
- Bravest act was heading to the UK for a working holiday alone with no plan
- Studied Floristry in both London and Sydney
- Owned a home-based wedding flower business for eight years
- Taught recreation classes for a leading Sydney Floristry school
- Have two wonderful teenage children who challenge me daily
- Been vegetarian for almost thirty years
- Tried to learn ceramics but only mastered the imperfect wabi sabi approach
- Massive fan of musical theatre
- Dreams of retiring to a cottage in the Blue Mountains
We really enjoy creating things that make people happy. We’d love the opportunity to design something amazing for you.
