​My best advice is to definitely do your homework when comparing pricing and quality of a Florist before making your final decision. Make sure the Florist you choose has photos of their recent previous work. Go over each detail of your wants and needs to be sure they can provide everything to you with then the budget that you have discussed. Lastly make sure they have good reviews and they are licensed and insured especially if they are not a store front location.  ​Happy Planning :)

Meet my 9 year old daughter Laylah she is soo stubborn and hardheaded at times and she always wants to do everything her way. She is soo passionate about creating beauty with flowers and art she loves taking my conditioned flowers and making stuff out of them every chance she can lol :)

Thank you for taking the time to consider me as your Florist and get to know me:) I am a mother of 4 beautiful children that I exploit as often as I can in the family business LOL. Unfortunately for me they don't think cleaning flowers is as fun as I did at their age ugh! kids SMH I am a wife to an amazing supportive husband who unfortunately is currently stationed on the other side of the United States for the next 3 years. Needless to say we have been racking up the frequent flyer miles. The military and I have a love hate relationship for sure  >:( Love conquers all and his job isnt forever! If I had a dollar for every time I have told myself that I would be rich haha. Something you may not know about me is I am a chicken hoarder shhh dont tell on me, but I have a few more chickens then I probably should LOL, I can't help it Chickens are the best pets ever! I mean come on does your family pet provide you with fresh breakfast everyday? Mine do!


Lucky for me, I grew up with a Grandmother that owned one of the oldest & well known Flower shops in the South Bay Area. She also believed firmly in child labor LOL, so I was blessed at a very early age with a life long creative gift & priceless valuable knowledge in the industry <3 By about the age of 8 I had my heart set on being either a Lawyer or Florist. Through the years I was subjected to child labor, I truly grew to love flowers and being creative not to mention law school was outrageously expensive! hahaha My mind was made up! I convinced my Grandmother to retire and sell her shop to me ("Carson Florist and Gifts" was located in Carson, CA). By the age of 19 I owned my first storefront Flower Shop and I have never looked back in the choice I have made for a career.  <3 ​

The Services that I offer will stand out above others in my industry because I strive for excellent quality and affordability for my clients, I take great pride in my artistic creativity and the quality of product I offer to my customers. My job is to provide my clients with a stress free gorgeous special day. My number one goal is to exceed all of my clients expectations they have based on inspiration photos they have found on pinterest!

I specialize in Weddings, Fresh Flower Crowns, Funerals, Baby Showers, Corporate & Personal Events, Large Parties, Baby Showers & Bridal Showers :)

As an Event Florist and not a storefront Florist, I am able to offer a more personal experience and better pricing due to having less overhead to my customers.
