Lauren Bacall’s Bouquet Toss

In honor of her passing, TheWeek.com posted this priceless footage of Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart on their wedding weekend – including a classic bouquet toss. Back in the forties, the bouquet toss had yet to devolve into the single-woman shaming exercise that it has often become today (we at My Little Flower Shop are advocates of the bouquet presentation- a very sweet tradition.)

I am guessing that this was all staged for the cameras.  Movie studios had a way of capiatalizing on a good love story, making stars under contract “date” each other, so a re-enactment of these events wouldn’t surprise me.  But, somehow I don’t think a couple that much in love would have allowed cameras at the real events. In noir parlance- I bet you dollars to donuts that kind of dame would have been looking for romance.

RIP Lauren Bacall.

Thank you, everyone! We love Palm Springs!

What a wonderful Valentine’s Day! We love our community, and need to thank you.  We’ll call it my “Academy Awards speech” post. First I’d like to thank my agent…

Well no.  First we have to thank our designers, our amazing staff and everyone who came to pitch in on this incredibly busy day.  Also an extra big thank you to Alan, who drives to and from Los Angeles to fetch beautiful blooms for our arrangements, and then sets to work creating what can only be described as fine art with flowers.

And who could forget the captain of the ship – Gregory – keeping us all on course, ship-shape and sailing towards Mother’s Day.

But most of all it’s you; our clients, friends, families and fans who keep us doing what we do. Thank you for your support, Desert Cities! We’re so proud to be YOUR Little Flower Shop! We love you!

Be well, and love well.
