About Upscale & Posh

We’ve always believed that when you want to make an entrance, put on a show, and create memories to last a lifetime nothing compares to the look of fresh cut flowers. The colours and scents can bring any space to life and add a spark of inspiration to any setting.  It’s this love of the natural world that led us to set up our business all the way back in 2002, and we’ve been going ever since.

As a family run business we know it’s the fine details that make all the difference to the finished product. It’s no good having a flower shop nearby if you know you’re not going to fall in love with what they create. ‘Okay’ is never good enough because you’ll be left focusing on the small changes that would bring your display to life. We care about everything we put our name to, and it’s this passion combined with our attention to detail that’s made us the online flower shop Dubai trusts.

With orders being sent out every single day, we’ve been able to master the art of online flower delivery. Dubai residents regularly seek us out because of our rich history and renowned creativity. It’s what provides the finishing touch to any wedding or family gathering, as well as adding some inspiring colour and sophistication to any number of corporate settings. Just what you need when you want everything to come together in perfect harmony.

To become the flower shop Dubai businesses and residents can rely on all year round we’ve constantly strived to create new, innovative arrangements. With a team of in-house florists constantly working on bespoke pieces and signature displays, we’re never short of ideas when our customers are looking to really catch the eye. Our designs are carefully crafted stem-by-stem so that nothing is left to chance as we create a premium quality product you won’t find anywhere else.

Whether you’re looking to dress your home with our subscription service, capture the essence of your big day, or bring a corporate event to life, our florists are always ready and waiting. As well as a premium product we’d be proud to have in our own home, we also offer cheap flower delivery. Dubai is a corner of the world that deserves the best, so we never cut corners when it comes to quality, and never make you wait for a little bit of luxury to arrive at your door.

It’s just better that way…
