Among Bangkok’s glitterati, Plaza Athénée Bangkok, a Royal Méridien Hotel, is a favourite downtown location for glamorous wedding receptions and anniversary parties. One of the reasons for this is the reputation of the florists at the hotel’s flower shop, Athénée Flower, which is conviently situated opposite the dedicated Wedding Gallery. Garlands, posies or bouquets, the shop’s team of floral specialists is adept at matching blooms to the style of the client’s wedding function or event. So much so that the hotel decided to open what was previously only an in-house service to the public in early 2013.
Athénée Flower has a cozy boutique-style feel and a wonderful fragrance thanks to the many colourful florals on display. Here unique arrangements are created in many forms using a mix of indigenous and freshly imported blooms, all displayed in splendid locally made vases. The kaleidoscope of fresh flowers available include roses, orchids, hydrangeas, gerbera, and various types of lily. Given enough time (at least 24 hours, and depending on the season), certain non-indigenous flowers can also be ordered from overseas.
Athénée Flower caters to almost any type of large event, themed or otherwise, but delivery service outside the hotel is unavailable. Still, if you’re looking to make a romantic impression on that someone special this Valentine’s Day, drop by the shop for a handcrafted bouquet.
