In these modern times, flower bouquets are not just meant for mummies on Mother’s Day. With the right choices of flowers for the bouquet arrangement, we believe that fathers too deserve their days to be brightened up with Mother Nature’s colourful array of creations.
Frustrated with filling up our fathers’ wardrobes with accessories, such as ties, wallets, pens and belts over the years, we finally found the answer to an unorthodox – and perhaps, even surprising – present for Father’s Day this year in Daun & Petals, one of the few bouquet gifting establishments that have set up in the last five years, which has stood out with their curations of wild flowers and succulents.
Cherlyn Tan and Claris Lew are the two self-taught designer florists behind Daun & Petals, who came together through their mutual love for the not-so ordinary flowers, and spreading love and joy through something as simple as a hand bouquet.
Officially launched on Instagram in July 2016, Daun & Petals kick started their establishment with offerings of the artful Oohlala and Woohoo bunches, priced at RM69 and RM109 respectively. Their distinctive floral arrangements have quickly garnered the attention of many, servicing not only the regular bouquet orders online, but also for corporate events, weddings and workshops.
Today, Daun & Petals also added to their growing service the lavish Super Bunch in three sizes (from RM400 onwards), featuring seasonal flowers that are bigger than life itself. Not to mention, the more personalised aspect of things: the unique Custom Bucketlist (from RM200 onwards) sees customers going through quick consultation sessions with the designer florists to concoct a mix of floral and fauna for a very special person; as well as the personalised Gift Box (from RM180 onwards), which senders may pair their bouquets with macaroons from TWG, or cold brew coffee and cold press juice from Life Juice.
