      • We do not offer personal delivery of fresh flowers to areas further afield. If you are unsure whether or not we deliver to your area please give us a call on 022 477 0255 or email

        Can I place a pre order?

        • Yes you can pre order up to 30 days in advance on our website and this is a great option as we have been selling out fast due to current flower shortages.  

        Can I request a custom order or specific flowers?

        • If you are wanting something more tailored and specific please give Camila a call on 022 477 0255 to discuss your requirements. Please note that we may require up to seven days notice depending on what flowers/arrangement you have in mind. We will always do our best to source what you want, however, due to the nature of flowers and Mother Nature we cannot guarantee specific flowers. It's always best to have an alternative or generic colour scheme in mind. 

          What happens if the recipient is not home:

          • If no one is home we (and our courier drivers) will leave flowers in the best safe place, away from pets and the elements where possible. Generally at the front door of a home. 
          • If you want your delivery to be a surprise but are not sure your recipient will be home, we suggest ordering a boxed or crate arrangement which has a larger water source than our wrapped bouquets. 
          • In the event of no access to the homes front door area - (a closed gate, dogs and no answer from recipient) we will keep your order safe and contact you (the sender) to arrange a re-delivery. Please note that there is a re-delivery fee charged for this service so we ask that you try to choose a date where someone is likely to be home. We cannot take responsibility for flowers that perish if your recipient is not home for the date or days following when flowers are delivered. 

          How will my flowers be packaged?

          • Your flowers will arrive presented in a wrap, crate or box as requested in your order. Bouquets will be delivered wrapped in a flower-food saturated tissue to keep the flowers hydrated until the recipient arrives home. 

          What if I need to change something in my order?

          • If you’ve discovered that you need to update a card message, a delivery address or any other details, please call us as soon as you can or email us at with your order number.

          Can I collect my order in person?

          • Your order can be collected from our home based studio in Katikati. As we open by appointment only please phone us or email us with your order details so we can ensure the flowers are ready before you arrive -  please note we are open Tuesday to Friday but are out delivering flowers in the afternoons.

          Can I cancel my order?

          • We cannot cancel any order that has already been made up. If the cancellation request is made prior to the order being made up, we will accept cancellation and provide you with a full refund.

          Will my order look exactly like the bouquets/arrangements pictured?

          • As seasons change, so too do flowers. Please note that arrangements pictured in our product catalogue are examples only and we will endeavour to match your chosen colour palette with the seasonal flowers available at the time of order. If you would like a custom order, please phone us on 022 477 0255 to discuss 

          Do you have a physical store?

          • To continue hand delivering our Waihi - Katikati orders personally, we have chosen not to have a physical store. This means we can dedicate more time to creating your order and ensuring the recipient receives their flower delivery in tip-top shape!

          Does Mini Petals flower Weddings?

          • Due to complications around flower shortages and unpredictable pricing, we are no longer booking large weddings for the 2024/25 season. If you are looking for Bridal Party flowers only and are flexible with your flower choices - please give us a call. Alternatively submit an email request via our "Events" Page.
