The new Flower Café by Petals Group is a magical new setting where flower lovers can explore their creativity, while enjoying some of Cape Town’s finest coffee and homemade confectionary.
“While COVID-19 may have locked us out of hosting large events for a while, it couldn’t lock us out of helping Capetonians unleash their inner florists in our one-of-a-kind space,” says Petals Group founder, Flower Walker.
Starting off, Petals Group will open Flower Café on Wednesdays to Fridays from 09:00 to 16:00 and on Saturdays from 09:00 to 13:00, when their friendly floral designers will be on hand to assist guests with their unique creations; whether arrangements in vases, floral wreaths or even flower crowns.
“We want guests to be able to create whatever their hearts desire in our Flower Café. We can give guidelines if necessary, but there will be absolute freedom to play,” adds Flower.
“Being prevented from coordinating corporate events and bespoke weddings inspired our team to reinvent the way we use our unique resources,” says Veronica Yankelowitz, one of Petals Group’s event coordinators. “With a large, whimsical workshop space; a warehouse full of custom-made event props; and a team of exceptionally talented floral artists who know how to host a great party, it was an easy transition to make,” adds Vee.
“Petals was perfectly positioned to pivot their business into a fresh space that is appealing to hundreds of local floral enthusiasts,” says Lisa Aspeling from Anago Marketing. “The hands-on creative experience that they are offering to Cape Town residents and visitors is unlike any other, which is why it is resonating with so many people,” she adds.
Flower is somehow not surprised at the public’s jubilant response to Flower Café: “I think it’s the combination of our quirky aesthetic with the power of natural beauty, as well as our innate desire to create and appreciate beauty as human beings that has gotten people so excited. Adding a safe, social element to the creative floral experience just made sense.”
They request that guests book in advance in order to help manage social distancing and other safety measures. A R70 non-refundable booking fee per person secures your spot and is deductible from your floral purchases on the day.
