“We are a floral delivery service online and brick and mortar store in Kapiti, we do weddings, sympathy tributes, new babies, birthdays and thank you and any other floral occasion. We have New Zealand made Chocolate soaps and candles and are always on the look out for other NZ product”

Experience, highly qualified staff, fresh flowers, plants , design and fantastic delivery service and investing in a great website.
I trained as junior florist at Copseford Flowers gained senior and diploma NZPF and wanted to have my own floral design store and purchased it when the opportunity came about.
My Biggest Challenge was moving out of coastlands mall into Kapiti Lights as we needed more space as working conditions were very cramped. Also having to update and revamp our website knowing we would lose foot traffic and it would take time for people to realise we had moved. This we achieved with the help of Web Genius and Ecwid and google
The unpresentened Covid 19 challenge, not knowing when we could reopen and if we could get flowers due to restrictions, retain staff and manage with little or no income and a rent increase two weeks before lockdown would have been one of the biggest challenges to date. Along with the massive increase in flower prices.
This year has certainly been challenging with Covid 19 shutting shop for 5 weeks, learning cloud flower market buying , very strong flower prices (never seen before) due to covid and shortages in flowers and gapes in their production. The biggest Mothers day we have seen in many years due to family not being able to get together because of travel restrictions with Covid 19. We were able to open in level three with click and collect and contactless delivery and thanks to my wonderful dedicated staff and fantastic customers we made it through the busiest and most craziest time we have seen.
Gaining a 60 percent increase in visibility for our website in the last six months with Web Genuis. A bigger selection NZ made products and locally sourced flowers and greenery. Top 10 in Interflora for 10 years running Nominated to Interflora Board,and Exec of New Zealand Professional Florist Increased website sales and foot traffic

Sent my mum flowers (I’m in Australia) and everyone was so nice and helpful! They delivered same day and drove all way up the driveway and made sure got delivered to my mum. She was so happy.
The ladies on the phone were so nice and lovely!
The flowers were exactly what I asked for! All the colours were what I asked for 🙂
Thanks so much!
Highly recommend
Dear Celeste & team
Both my sister & l would like to thank you & your team for the exquisite floral tributes you prepared & hand delivered & placed on my mother’s gravesite & her younger brother’s grave.
It was the first year anniversary of our mother’s passing. Both my sister & l live overseas & because of the on going Coronavirus pandemic we are unable to return to New Zealand.
Celeste & her team did an absolutely wonderful job. Their advice & help in selecting the flowers was invaluable. The extra special touches of photographing the flowers on the grave sites was so thoughtful.
I highly recommended Copseford Flowers
