We are Jasmine and Bryce of Mint Floral and we do things differently... and this is why we were awarded the 2016 Northland Business Excellence Award for 'Customer Choice'
We are a New Zealand owned and operated company based at 1A Robert Street, Laurie Hall Park, (Adjacent to Farmers) in Whangarei CBD, Northland, New Zealand. We had the passion to open an 'Eco-Friendly', 'Sustainable' and 'Local Focused' florist and gift shop. All of our flowers are New Zealand grown and some are even organic! - Not soaked in chemicals or flown in from far flung corners of the globe. We source a large majority of our blooms from Northland and supplement this with other flowers grown throughout the rest of New Zealand.
Our gifting products are New Zealand made- we support Kiwi businesses! And all of our lines are carefully selected and undergo our unique testing criteria. Our gifts are beautifully and sustainably packaged. Our products are dairy free and egg free, plant based, vegetarian, not tested on animals and are actually good for you!
We offer a unique shopping experience where any person of any age feels confident in trusting us to create an amazing bunch of flowers or a gift of real meaning and significance for their recipient.
We also are both artists- if you ever get to visit our store you will see the bright floral mural we painted along the shop side, facing towards the Laurie Hall Park playground. You will also see our vintage cruiser bike parked outside and ready for doing our local CBD deliveries on. There is a Floral Menu in store to make it super easy for your ordering pleasure- you will see images of what your recipient will receive- this eliminates all the guess work and makes ordering fun!
We hope you enjoy the Mint Floral experience.

JASMINE FULLER - Co-Owner / Florist / Nature Engineer
With over a decade of floral experience, Jasmine's creative hands have no limits. She was born in Christchurch but moved to Whangarei at intermediate age and completed her schooling here. She then went on to study art at the University of Auckland, during which time she sold her paintings and was commissioned to paint many private artworks and public murals. She also studied to become a high school art teacher, however flowers kept calling her back. She worked for many years in Auckland for high end flower shops when she then met her partner, Bryce. As the relationship developed so did the idea of Mint Floral. They both share a love for all that is artistic and beautiful. They both have an eye for detail and love creating quality work. At Mint, Jasmine is the wedding and event specialist but you'll still see her in store whipping up bouquets, developing the website, posting on social media and generally creating a fun work environment for her wonderful staff. Jasmine created our website herself and does all our photography and graphic design. Outside of flowers she is enthusiastic about the Vegan movement and plant based food, exploring nature, camping, wearable art, painting, running and restoring furniture. FAVOURITE FLOWER: Waterlilies
BRYCE WILLIAMS - Co-Owner / Director / Floral Courier
With a career in signage and a background in art, specifically mural painting, Bryce brings an element of flair to Mint Floral. He's a joker and is never short of original one-liners. He has the Mint girls in stitches more than once a day! His calmness and centered nature brings great balance to the team. Bryce is driven by a desire to create consistent and quality work. He grew up in Auckland and also spent some years working in Sydney, Australia, before meeting Jasmine. Their mutual love of art and creativity ignited many collaborative works between this dynamic duo. The greatest of them all being Mint Floral of course! Outside of work he enjoys spending time with family and friends, catching waves, exploring nature, street art, sports and fitness. If you order a delivery from Mint Floral, it will most likely be delivered with a smile, by Bryce, in our fully sign written van (which he did himself of course!) FAVORITE FLOWER:
ASHLEE SMITH - Florist / Botanical Creator
With an open mind and a hungry heart, Ashlee asked Jasmine "How do you become a Florist?" whilst buying flowers as a customer from Mint Floral. Jasmine thought to herself - I like this girl. She has sass and a big personality. I'm going to see if this works. Jasmine said "Well... when you get an opportunity, you take it" ...and then asked for her contact details. A few days later Ashlee started on a one week work experience trial and now over a year on, the rest is history. Ashlee has been a fast learner and is extremely talented. She has the kindest soul and everyone can't help but love her. She works on our front bench and will be one of the first faces to greet you when you visit the store. Outside of flowers Ashlee loves the outdoors, painting and exploring New Zealand beaches over summer. FAVORITE FLOWER: Lisianthus
CHLOE ALDERTON - Florist / Floral Stylist
At the end of 2015, with her Bachelor of Design at Toi Whakaari in Wellington winding up, Chloe wondered what her next move in life would be. She heard from her sister that there was a "really cool flower shop" up in Whangarei looking for staff. She thought to herself - I've always wanted to be a Florist! She sent Jasmine and Bryce an email and they loved what they read, so gave her a chance. Chloe is a great crafter and enjoys the little details. She has the biggest smile and is a glowing light in the Mint Floral team. She laughs so much and we love her for her unique approach to life. There is never a dull moment - she's a real live wire! Outside of flowers Chloe is excited about movies, organizing things and making Performing Arts accessible. FAVORITE FLOWER: Sunflowers
ELLEN LEAMING - Customer Service Queen
With keen enthusiasm to expand her horizons in 2016, Ellen applied for a Customer Service position in our ever-expanding team. As soon as we met her, we knew she was someone special. She's an extremely kind, considerate and friendly person with great communication skills, which were perfect attributes for becoming our front line wonder woman. If you call the shop, visit in-store, email us or place an online order, you will most likely speak to Ellen. She will process your order and make sure all information is passed on to our talented florists. She loves living a healthy lifestyle, running, hanging out with friends and family, and visiting our beautiful local beaches. We've also noticed she's really good at putting on different accents and voices - she's a good laugh and we love her! FAVORITE FLOWER: Carnations
JESS HILL - Junior Florist
While finishing her last year at high school in 2016, Jess worked after school with us and gained enough experience to know that floristry is a career she would like to pursue. Now out of school, she works with us as a junior floral assistant and we are loving getting to know her sweet nature. She's a hippy at heart, is softly spoken and loves going to music festivals with her friends in her old-school Ford Escort. She also loves driving out to the beach with her friends, for the day, over the weekend. She likes to work quietly and conscientiously in the background, but is gaining in confidence and is practicing the floristry skills we have taught her. She's super excited for what her future holds with Mint Floral. FAVORITE FLOWERS: Sunflowers
