Meet Tessa from Poppy In April

I'm Tessa, owner, founder and visionary of Poppy in April
Before starting my own business, I spent over 18 years in the floral industry, working with thousands of incredible customers on every type of occasion imaginable.

In 2021 I took the knowledge, experience and trust gained over those years and turned that into my own boutique brand and floral studio.
I created Poppy in April with the vision of providing an exclusive customer experience devoted to creating lasting memories.
You'll see this vision reflected everywhere, from hand-selecting the very best locally grown flowers to the time, effort and care I take crafting every single order from scratch with the final recipient at heart.
I'm based in Tuakau; I love working with locals in Buckland, PukekoheWaiukuFranklin & Pokeno and partner with excellent floral couriers that deliver anywhere in Auckland.


Our style is on trend

Forget limp carnations surrounded by uninspired filler. I'll create exquisite floral arrangements that are contemporary, cool and creative.

We get the good stuff.

I work directly with local growers, which means they look after us. Our flower hauls are A-grade and include those hard-to-find floral gems.

Our flowers are super fresh.

I hand select our flowers ensuring they are as fresh as fresh can be. They aren’t stored which means they’ll stay perky and fragrant for longer.

We love what we do.

This isn’t just a job. I live and breathe roses, hydrangeas, peonies and tulips... the list goes on! Every creation that leaves our shop is infused with love and care.
