If you’ve left your friend’s birthday gift to the last minute (we’ve all been there) or perhaps you’re looking for a little something special for a new arrival, Alba Roses in Nobby Beach has you covered with beautiful bouquets, deliciously sweet scented soy candles from Franki Gusti, potted plants and other such niceties. The pretty pastel pink and white space is housed in the former Bakery (next to Grill’d) and is the work of local lady Mel Pinkey, who also happens to be the brilliantly talented hands behind the blooms. If you’re super organised (go you!) you can pre-order a bouquet online or just pop in and Mel will weave her magic while you wait. In addition to flowers, you’ll find organic skincare from Urban Rituelle, adorable stuffed animals from Jellycat and swoon-worthy stationery from Rifle Paper Co. If you’re in need of a gift for any occasion, Alba Roses is your one-stop shop.
