grand changes June 10 2019
We are MOVING!
It's been 10 years of joy & success at this location in Santa Monica!
And it is with great love & gratitude that we are moving on to Ojai.
Still keeping our French inspired, SoCal style of exquisite seasonal blooms... to a new locale.
We will be closing the SaMo shop by the end of June 2019.
Meanwhile, come visit for a squeeze and a sniff and some fleurs over the next couple weeks.
And next time you are in Ventura County or the Ojai area, look us up!
We'll see you then,
Mother's Day May 14 2019
Thank you to all our amazing customers, friends, staff, suppliers, mamas, mamacitas, mamans, & mother figures extraordinaire!!! O Happy Day!
In delight & defense of daily florals March 15 2019
We are a floral design studio and boutique that offers a myriad of floral services, including daily delivery. There's not a lot of us left!
It's a difficult business model combining logistics in Los Angeles with a perishable and not easily deliverable product. And that not taking in consideration the art part. So we want to say~
to our flower friends and amazing customers:
We are balancing it all, all OF the time. As, we are sure, you are too.
Personal and professional lives. Art and commerce. Daily deliveries and events. In home florals and photoshoots.
We still haven't quite figured out how to be in two places at the same time. But we're working on it.
So we'll be here flowering as much as we can & in between...we send you much gratitude for your patience and understanding.
We will be closed March 16-19.
And have some shorter hours between the 20-29.
So here's to a happy end of March!
all our love and gratitude,
L'amour March 04 2019

Happy Weekend January 18 2019
"We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies."
“Not everybody can be famous but everybody can be great because greatness is determined by service… You only need a heart full of grace and a soul generated by love.”
Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day~ may we be our best selves.
We will be closed for the long weekend. Back on Tuesday.

autumn October 26 2018
October is one of our busier months and already we have done events almost every weekend and several in the same week including the GirlUp GirlHero awards and staging a $10 million dollar house, parties of all kinds and many happy, flowery occasions.
We have had to close most Saturdays to do so. We appreciate our customers and all your graciousness and patience.
Cant wait to celebrate thanks with you all next month!
aaaaaand we are closed for a few days, again. September 11 2018
Hello flower friends,
Thank you so much for your patience to our wonderful, loyal, old customers & to the patient potentially new.
We will be CLOSED the rest of this week.
There is a birthday to celebrate!
And the contemplation of this new year life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness...
and small business.
Ya know, trying to balance it all.
This is my 10th year of creating and committing to the best kept secret flower studio & garden in Santa Monica. It is humbling and amazing, so much hard work, lessons learned the hard way, lots of laughter, lots of tears, blood, sweat equity, and a ridiculous amount of love! And unbelievably gorgeous flowers and products.
Couldn't be more grateful for all of it. And for you. Yes, you. You a & Anybody & Everybody that has checked in, stopped by or become a customer & friend.
Closed for the weekend August 31 2018
It's been an interesting summer in an unusual year.
Here’s to the good: the light on the undersides of leaves, peaches, sunsets, dahlias, basil, sand between your toes, laughing in the sunlight, rainbows in our hair.
and farewell hot days, befuddlement, stagnancy, persistent pests, temper tantrums and lazy communication.
Hello autumn, we see you peeking at us behind the flip flop sales rack, in the now crisp edges of the leaves, in the slightly metallic taste of evening.
We will be closed this weekend to celebrate the last of summertime and contemplate the imminent fall...
back on Tuesday the 4th.
voyages d'été : summer travels July 23 2018
We are back from our summer travels!
It was an amazing journey full of literal and figurative ups & downs.
Life is a highway...
When there's one day here and the next day gone
Sometimes you bend and sometimes you stand
Sometimes you turn your back to the wind
Where blues won't haunt you anymore
Where brave are free and lovers soar
Come ride with me to the distant shore
To break down the garden gate
There's not much time left today
I wanna ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I wanna drive it all night long
