    The online store working in conjunction with the bricks and mortar space allows the team to send their dried flower masterpieces including everyday dried flower bouquets to dried wedding stories all across Australia.  Dried flowers Melbourne.  Dried flowers Sydney.  Dried wedding flowers Brisbane.  Dried wedding flowers Adelaide and Perth.  And yes, dried flowers Kirirrukura if you choose to live in a remote town in the Australian outback.  

    Dried flower and vessel combos are recent additions to Gather’s online store and have been incredibly well received as well as large statement pieces aimed at the corporate market.  Unique handmade palm baskets housing native floral arrangements such as the Holiday House or if chasing a more coastal vibe, the Palm Beach in white tones might be more suited.  All the hard work has been done and these long lasting beauties are perfect for owners of air BnB’s or hotel/motel accommodation.  No need to water and replace each week - they are the flowers that just keep on giving.  The most important thing to remember is to keep them out of direct sunlight and they will require a dust off every now and then to keep them looking fabulous.

    It must also be noted that Gather are the leading dried wedding flower specialists in Australia creating romantic dried flower bouquets … memorable wedding stories from understated minimalist designs such as Desert Dust to rambling and wild romantic stories such as Wild Woods or Cara Mellow.  If you are more of a coastal bride, Mykonos Days might be more your vibe or an understated and chic Aphrodite.  Hooray Mag bridal endorse Gathers bridal collection with their Editor Emily Coates purchasing a number of bouquets from the Everyday Bouquet collection for a home styling event.

    Also worthy of mentioning is the fact that Gather’s dried wedding flowers can be re-purposed and enjoyed long-term.  Get this. Not only can the bride and groom enjoy their floral creations for their big day but they can, and most importantly, enjoy their wedding flowers for years after the big event.  Imagine being able to use dried flower wedding table centrepieces as a piece of wall art above a bed or in a living room!  A most precious and memorable keepsake for all newly weds from their big day.

    Housing the first dried flower bar in Australia, the Gather bricks and mortar store situated at the southern end of the Gold Coast in Currumbin is a sensory packed space where all your dried flower dreams literally do come true.  You can pick out your favourite ingredients and let one of the team do the floral arranging magic for you or of course, you can stay and play and make your very own for a creative and unforgettable day out.   It must also be mentioned that Gather store is located right next door to the ‘fearlessly creative’ Dust Temple cafe and art gallery - a curious industrial space totally worthy of a visit on it’s own accord.  The two spaces are linked by an outdoor green space filled with outdoor patio plants and hanging lantern lights and rustic treasures from yesteryear.
