It’s no secret that I have a bit of an obsession with flowers – I try to implement them whenever possible, whether it be for large get-togethers, my storefronts, or just to have around the house. But there are so many beautiful flowers out there, many of which I never knew the names of – I just knew I loved the look.
As someone who loves flowers and uses them at every opportunity, I am forever looking for tips and tricks that will demystify (and simplify) the process of arranging them. With this in mind, I called on the amazing Yasmine Mei of Yasmine Floral Design, a deservedly in-demand LA floral designer with an emphasis on the ethereal, simple and classic
I stumbled upon Twig & Twine, a wonderful East Hollywood shop owned by floral and event designer Heather Williams, after eating next door at Sqirl – and was instantly charmed.
Earlier this week, I shared all of the design details from my birthday dinner. One of my very favorites: the individual arrangements that Kristen of Moon Canyon created for each place setting.
I’ve already shared several wonderful classes with a floral favorite, Stephanie at Botany. She can always be counted on for swoon-worthy arrangements and invaluable tips and tricks. For this installement, we learned how to perfect those of the edible variety.

I love lilacs, but never feel confident arranging them myself, and am often frustrated with how long they last. I asked the ever-amazing Maurice Harris of Bloom & Plume to teach me some tips and tricks for creating beautiful, lasting arrangements, and was so happy with how they turned out.
I’ve made no secret of my love for Stephanie Schur and her amazing flower shop, Botany. Tucked inside the Brentwood Country Mart, it is a magical Parisian flower shop brought to LA, and my favorite local storefront. I couldn’t imagine a better destination for an afternoon of creating our own inspired arrangements.
I recently shared my love for Moon Canyon Design and the amazing work that they do. Needless to say, I was thrilled when Maurice connected me with the wonderful Kristen Caissie so that I could learn how to create that kind of magic on my own. I invited Ambre and Nicole over for our class on perfectly imperfect floral arrangements, and must say that I am still stunned at how beautifully they turned out. I asked Kristen to share the secrets and steps behind our gorgeous arrangements, and hope you enjoy!
I have always loved the look of a floral headdress – sweet, organic, and simply beautiful. Now that I have a little girl, it seemed the perfect excuse to learn how to make them myself, and such a fun activity for the two of us to do together. We invited a group of adorable little ladies and their Mamas over for a wonderful afternoon with the amazing Amy Blessing as she taught us how to make our own very chic, very homemade headdresses. I asked Amy to share her tips and tricks in creating the perfect floral crown, and hope you enjoy!
I have long been a fan of the work of Kristen Caissie from Moon Canyon Design, so when my friend Maurice of Bloom & Plume connected us, I was thrilled. Moon Canyon specializes in flowers and styling, handcrafting beautiful, intimate details for gatherings of all types. But perhaps what they are becoming most recognized for, is their signature wreaths. Insanely gorgeous, they also smell heavenly, and can be used in the traditional sense or as a stunning centerpiece.
As you know, I love having fresh flowers around but don’t always know how to do them myself without them looking like an amateur arranged them. Thank god for Maurice Harris of Bloom and Plume, who is the best teacher!
I love having fresh flowers around the house and I put them everywhere – they make me so happy and brighten things up. While I try my best to make the perfect flower arrangement, I always feel like there’s something I’m missing. To solve this problem, I recently hired Maurice Harris, the owner of Bloom and Plume, to give a few friends and me lessons on how to make the perfect arrangement.
