Our favourite flower truck has put down roots at this popular new eatery

There are few things we love more than fresh blooms in the home or office, so it should come as no surprise that we’ve long been fans of Millie Austin and her adorable La Femme Fleur flower truck — our go-to for showstopping brimming bouquets that don’t cost an arm and a leg. And while it’s always been a pleasure (and a nostalgic novelty) to acquire our week’s beautiful blooms via her flower shop on wheels, we were delighted to hear that Austin has set up a more permanent outpost to peddle her petals from.

Conveniently located at the entrance of Ponsonby’s favourite newcomer, Augustus bistro, touting everything from whimsical bouquets for every celebration (easily saving many a behind if the special occasion has slipped one’s mind) to seasonal blossoms ready to be carted home to liven up one’s discerning interior, for a little flower power, you know where to go. Also worth noting, for a limited time over the festive season, La Femme Fleur will be offering elegant, long-lasting wreaths either with or without posies to deck one’s halls/door.
