WESLEY Quarter in the heart of the Perth CBD has been transformed into a floral oasis this week as part of Wesley Blooms.

Renowned Perth florist Rebecca Grace has created two giant bespoke floral archways in the Wesley laneway for Perth’s first pop-up garden experience.

The highly sought-after florist said it was great to bring a bit of heritage back to the Wesley Church, which used to be decorated in flowers as part of Flower Week in the 1950s.

‘The floral heritage at Wesley is really interesting and I had no idea about it until I started this project, but it’s nice to bring something back; wouldn’t it be amazing to completely recreate that floral spectacular?’ Rebecca said.

‘I love using floral to set a mood and I think this really brings something entirely new to the CBD. I haven’t really seen anything else like it around here.

‘The structure is a mix between both fresh and fake flowers. The colours are really indicative of summer and it really adds new life to the laneway.’

Working closely with Rebecca was the Gardens from Eden team, who extended the floral experience through the laneway.

Shoppers in the Wesley Quarter are invited to take floral selfies and upload them to Quarter social media pages. The most creative image will win a $1000 Quarter shopping spree.
