Get ‘bud naked’ as romance blossoms this Valentine’s

LOVE will be in the air today as local couples celebrate Valentine's Day.

And what would the loved-up day be without a few romantic red roses?

Bud Naked Florist in Noosaville opened just prior to Valentines Day in 2019 and is gearing up for one of the busiest days.

"We are already busier than last year," florist Natalie Du Toit said.

While red roses are a popular and traditional choice, Ms Du Toit said they were featuring nude roses in the bouquets for a more "contemporary feel"

"Red means love, it's romance.

"But we're not just trying to do red this year, we have nude roses which are just stunning."

After being a florist for more than 15 years, Ms Du Toit has a wealth of knowledge and her favourite flower - the tuberose.

"They just have the most amazing fragrance."

She said these days dried bouquets we just as popular as fresh flowers, with them lasting up to a year.

Bud Naked work to source their flower from local growers and cater for weddings and functions.

"We also try and source our flowers from local growers, it's like a little piece of Noosa."
