We love the My Little Flower Shop Newlyweds! All our couples are just the best. And we’ve been receiving such wonderful messages recently on Facebook – it’s a wonderful feeling. We’d love to bottle those good feelings to help show other to-be-weds how much joy we can bring to their celebrations. Won’t you help us by leaving a review? We love our clients!!!!
Think of a major national retailer, you probably have zeroed right in on the one I’m talking about. You’ve got great aim, and you’re a straight shooter.
They’ve got a TV ad on right now that’s driving me crazy. It shows a lovely, fashionably turned-out woman walking through a giant Pinterest board and bringing all her fabulous holiday ideas into being. But according to their chirpy jingle, she couldn’t possibly do it without this store’s credit card!
That’s a load of bullpuckey. Your creative ideas do not require any special thing to be brought to life this holiday season – especially not a line of credit. I’m tired of stores making everyone feel so much pressure about making everything perfect.
Just make it yours! And that you can do with stuff you’ve already got in your house. OK, so you may need a new strand of lights or two. But don’t feel “less than” because you’re not setting up a pre-thanksgiving dinner miniature golf course for goodness sake.
Enjoy a hapy and safe holiday!

We’ve been proudly providing the Coachella Valley’s finest flowers since 2010.
At My Little Flower Shop, we look for inspiration everywhere. There are loads of terrific wedding blogs, and we’re glad to be a part of that sphere. But we also reach outside of it for ideas.
One Kings Lane, a flash sale site for high end decor, offers a curated look at the best in home design. They even pick a favorite Pinterest board once a week- and as someone who’s lost entire afternoons deep in the home design boards, some help focusing is a godsend as far as I’m concerned. I definitely recommend checking out the One Kings Lane Style Blog
In the world of weddings, as in the rest of life, “should” is a dangerous word. As we head into engagement season, I want to address the concept of “should” as relates to wedding planning. A lot of advertising is aimed at to-be-weds about what they “should” do, wear, or even spend on their celebrations. You’ll be happier if you tune out those voices. Let’s talk about why.
Think about what ‘should” actually means. If you should, it means you aren’t. That what you are doing, being, eating, choosing, etc. is ill-considered, misguided and sometimes (depending on how dramatic your mother is) fatal. It could be that you’re not doing it right, or that you’re not doing it at all, but whatever it is, a “should” implies you are wrong and bad.
Even full of confidence and empowered by the fact that this YOUR wedding/life, being told that you aren’t doing something right starts to make you reconsider. “Maybe I should do/be whatever it is that I’m not. Should I have thought of that?” And so it becomes internal. Should means aren’t, and eventually it drills down to doubting who you are.
So skip the “shoulds” people! Tempted in conversation? Try:
- A good option might be to…
- You know, I had a friend who…
- If it were me, I would…
Support your friends – to-be-weds and the general public. If it were me, I’d tell them you love them, too.
Be well, and love well.

This is a reprise from last year…still true…bears repeating!
Did you hear about the bride whose dress was burned in a fire the night before her wedding? Did you hear about the groom who locked himself in the hotel bathroom and missed the whole reception? As a florist in an ideal destination wedding location like Palm Springs, I understand why people are compelled to share bridal nightmare tales with wedding vendors. They know we’ve dealt with our fair share, and in their own way, they are showing respect for the sometimes challenging, but always rewarding, work that we do. But for goodness sake people, please stop scaring the brides! Lord knows they’re a skittish bunch, so don’t follow up “Congratulations on your engagement!” with some tale of a wedding gone horribly wrong. It may be funny to you, but to this person diving into the difficult planning process, it’s no laughing matter. So have a little heart. Save the bridal calamity tales for the bridesmaids. Now THAT’s your demographic!
Check out this pretty party by a posh Palm Springs florist, My Little Flower Shop!
