Floral arrangements, hampers, balloons & locally made gifts
I love the name Sugabuds. It conjures up images of Gumnut fairies playing in the lush green meadows.
This quaint little florist and gift store is in an old church on the main road between Greensborough and Yarrambat. Phyllis and Marlene previously owned it. The shop was known as The Grace of Plenty Treasures.
Floral arrangements of different shapes and sizes
Like the previous shop, Sugabuds stocks plenty of lovely and unique locally made goods. As well as the old stock, the new owner Katie, has purchased new stock to add her own flavour.
A young businesswoman, Katie, has been working as a florist for 10 years and has operated her own business from home but this is her first independent business venture. Katie is a part of Interflora which means that she is likely to be open more often. As a new business owner, she's currently testing the popular days and is open seven days a week.
Beautiful christmas gifts
Katie also delivers and caters for corporate businesses. She believes that initial impressions are important. She designs fresh flower arrangements that will soften spaces that would otherwise be harsh lines and architecture. Sugabuds also provides a range of products for the boardroom, centrepieces, seminars and social occasions. Katie guarantees 100% freshness and the highest quality.
A unique chocolate box
Birthdays, anniversaries, births, sympathy, weddings, funerals or just because, you name it, Katie can provide the floristry work just for you. She also sells boxed chocolates, balloons and prepares hampers. I liked the little chocolate box; at first glance I thought it was a floral arrangement.
Personalised hampers created for you
If you loved The Grace of Plenty Treasures or you have never dropped in, this would be a good chance to have a look at what Sugabuds has to offer. Katie has big ideas for her new business so look out for the new features in the future.
