WE ALL LOVE FLOWERS

there is a flower shop in my neighborhood that i really adore. last week my boyfriend’s mom was coming to our house to celebrate her birthday and i wanted to create a centerpiece for a small party we were going to have together.

these shop owners are the coolest around (and check out their pup!) and they agreed to let us photograph them creating this beautiful wild flower arrangement - and she even let me help choose some of my favorite flowers from the shop.

what i like about clementine is they always have the best selection of unique flowers and succulents. i am always telling my boyfriend “i reallllly love this place” because sometimes boyfriends need obvious hints, right? my favorite part was watching the assembling magic…teri put together this really modern centerpiece and even said to me that it might be a little too “2014″…and i replied that we like to keep things 2014 around here.

i somehow look like i am the happiest girl in the whole planet in that picture above. i guess flowers do that to a gal.

so this was what we ended up with! i absolutely loved it. and those enormous dahlias were my favorite part.

and then i wanted to show you guys the part of this shop that really brings me back too often. they create these little bundles of happiness for under 10 bucks. they have them sitting on the counter and i can never resist. they are the perfect gift for a friend that i just want to cheer up, or if i am going to a dinner party to give to the hostess, or even to bring some joy to my desk that day.

they are wrapped in a piece of a burlap sack and tied with some twine. (you should just go in there one day and watch her work, it’s so entertaining!) so then i left the shop with one of these too…

do you have a favorite flower shop that you always go back to? it was fun to show you mine and hopefully i have convinced you to make your way over there (or to recreate these little flower bunches at home.)

    oh my gosh. I burst out laughing at the photo of the dog. so so cute! lovely photography, as well!

    Pretty sure all of these images just brighten my day a little. Flowers are so powerful in that way :)

    My mom’s backyard (around the house) is the best floral place for me! Since I live in an area where the florists cater to mostly funerals… I don’t have the best selection in the trendy floral shop department, but home landscaping is perfect place for me to gather inspiration and the limited selection forces me to be more creative! Thanks for the fun floral post bri!

  • 4. Cori Magee  |  August 29th, 2012 at 8:13 am

    Lovely!! It’s a BIG problem that I can’t enjoy fresh flowers at home… My cat eats them! And she eats succulents too. Don’t know what to do, advice anyone?

  • 5. anna  |  August 29th, 2012 at 8:54 am

    very pretty photographs! i absolutely love fresh flowers… i put little bunches into mason jars around the house.

    Floral Art on Abbot Kinney is AMAZEBALLS!! I am hoping one day my hubby buys me these guys! http://www.floralartla.com/product-detail.php?ItemID=495

    I love those $10 bundles, they would look great in my daughter’s nursery…

    Flowers are pretty pricey here, and the selection is slim! I can’t wait to live somewhere with a place like this =)

    Beautiful! Just looking at these images brightened my day!

    I haven’t found the perfect little flower shop for picking up or creating small little bouquets, but the flower shop right near my house seems to specialize in gorgeous succulents, air plants, and other potted plants and I absolutely love stopping in. They have great vessels for replanting too which helps!

  • 11. Rachael  |  August 29th, 2012 at 11:22 am

    Hi Bri. Lovely pictures, the flowers and your blouse complimented each other. If you don’t mind me asking where is your blouse from?
    Thank you for your time, take care.

  • 12. Eat Breathe Live Color  |  August 29th, 2012 at 11:37 am

    I love all the colors! Beautiful! Don’t bright flowers just make you so happy?!

  • 13. Latrina  |  August 29th, 2012 at 11:39 am

    Gorgeous photos! Very vibrant. :) What an adorable shop, too. I don’t have my favorite floral shop here in Sac but now I’m determined to find one! I normally get my flowers from the Farmer’s Market.. :) I am definitely going to visit that shop once I’m back in LA! <3 I love watching them work their magic.

  • 14. Alison  |  August 29th, 2012 at 12:08 pm

    A great little flower shop like this is like drinking of happiness concentrate. I always love going into flower shops, farmers’ markets, and even the floral section of my local grocery store to see the surprising new additions for the season. My favorites are Ranunculus, Dahlias, Lisianthus and Scabiosa and succulents. :) I’ll have to check this store out. – Alison { aliology.com }

    these are absolutely lovely. im on the hunt for a flower shop near me to create my own arrangements for my wedding! and at 10 bucks?! too good to be true!

  • 16. Deborah Cosentino  |  August 29th, 2012 at 2:13 pm

    CLEMENTINE has the MOST GORGEOUS arrangements ever!! They are without a doubt the best florists in town, I would never consider using anyone else. Speaking as a retired Set Decorator, who used flowers everywhere, I can say without a doubt, that these arrangements are superb. They are beautiful, creative and trendsetting. I love them!!!!! Thanks for writing this article and showing the photographs of the flowers in all their glory!!

  • 17. Leigh  |  August 29th, 2012 at 7:04 pm

    I’ve never been into buying flowers. But for my wedding, I found this place where they teach you to make your own arrangements for your wedding and I simply loved it! It was a blast with our group class. There were six of us the Friday before the wedding, and now I’ve been dying to go buy 100 more sunflowers for my own home!

  • 18. Noor  |  August 29th, 2012 at 8:00 pm

    Wow I really love those little flowers they make, so cute and creative. I miss that about home since living in KSA I feel like no one is creative here and its such a bummer for me.

    And your centerpiece is gorgeous.
