The Flower Picnic is a small florist shop but it is big on friendly service and offers a variety of floral arrangements.

My first impression was not the expected buckets full of bunches of flowers. What greeted me were individual vase arrangements of floral beauty, all beautifully crafted by Nic and her team.

Nicole, the owner of The Flower Picnic is rightly proud of her displays.

Flowers are not the only products available. Some unique gifts are on display and would add to any flower gift.

A small range of cards were displayed, certainly not the cards you would find in a card shop.

The card display.

What I thought was an unusual flower intrigued me. On asking, Nicole said it was a tulip that had opened up.

My observations were that no two arrangements were the same true floral art.

Nicole's words sum up The Flower Picnic. "Most of our flowers and plants are home-grown within the Yarra Valley region and surrounds and our gifts are sourced from right here in Australia. We believe there's beauty in simplicity - so whether you're celebrating something big, making your house feel more like home or letting someone know you're thinking of them - we'll make it easy to find what you need."

I noticed a selection of indoor plants. They are a gift that keeps on giving.

It's a new business and looks like becoming an old business.
