We literally found a magical place in the heart of Cape Town. More specifically, the Flower Cafe is nestled in a bright blue building in the trendy suburb of Woodstock. It is a floral paradise and a captivating destination for families and flower enthusiasts alike! You can embark on an enchanting journey into the world of flowers and artistic expression. It is very difficult to put this place into words as you will be overwhelmed by its beauty the moment you enter its doors, but I will try my best to present an overview of this delightful establishment and the myriad workshops it offers.
About the Flower Cafe
The Flower Cafe came to life in 2020 and since then became much more than just a cafe; it’s a sanctuary dedicated to the celebration of nature’s most exquisite creations: flowers. Founded on a profound love for blooms and a vision to share their beauty, this charming cafe has blossomed into a thriving community. It is now a place where you can come together to become creative, learn new skills, book flower deliveries, plan workshops, host events or take home your own creative kits. The opportunities are endless and it’s definitely a place where you want to come back to over and over again.
We came across the Flower Cafe by looking for something special to do with our kids. I saw on their website that they offer kiddies workshops where children can put together their very own magical garden. Besides the children’s options, they also offer workshops for teens and adults so that all ages of creative minds can be occupied.
The Flower Cafe’s workshops are a gateway to the art of floristry. Expert instructors, skilled in the delicate craft of flower arrangement, guide participants of all skill levels through the process. From crafting timeless bouquets to designing unique floral creations, attendees not only take home their masterpieces but also gain valuable skills.

The kids and I were invited to take part in the most magical kiddies workshop at the Flower Cafe and it honestly was one of the best experiences we’ve had so far in this year. The location was pretty easy to find as you receive all instruction of where to park and how to get there on your phone before the day of your visit.
As soon as we entered the studio, I was literally in awe with the beauty of this place. There are flowers everywhere, beautiful decor items, lounge areas all over the place, the most delicious cake arrangements and a cozy but yet generous workshop table.
All kids were greeted by their names and found little aprons and name tags at their work station. Veronica ran the workshop from start to finish and fully entertained children of all ages with the magical story on how to create their very own magical garden. The kids hugged and kissed their plants, welcomed them to their new homes, sprinkled fairy dust on top of them and decorated their gardens with the most magical items. It was pure delight to watch them enjoy every single step along the way and they were so proud to take everything home that it filled me with pure happiness.
I will certainly go back and do a workshop myself any time soon as this was such a special experience that I want to fully experience it myself surrounded by welcoming and loving people who are truly passionate about the work they do!
