Newsflash: We Love Weddings.

Did you know? We love weddings.  We love gorgeous bouquets, place cards, people in love, vows, diamond rings, aisle runners, wedding dresses, ballrooms, tears of joy in everyone’s eyes, dance floor monograms, fake lashes, scrumptious wedding cake, country clubs, ring bearers, tuxedos, poetry, sunsets, centerpieces, proud parents, something borrowed, hors d’oeuvres, parasols, table linens, boutonnieres, hotels, ring pillows, and of course, brides and grooms.

We love weddings. If you need us, we’ll be here in the Design District making all of our couples’ weddings meaningful, and beautiful.

Be well, and love well.


Thank You for Creating Our Dream Wedding! A Walk-In-Florists’-Shoes Inspired Moment of Gratitude.

It is high wedding season here in Palm Springs! And inside My Little Flower Shop, the bouquets, boutonnières and centerpieces are flying. As a team member at MLFS, my participation is usually electronic. But this weekend found me riding shotgun in the My Little Flower Shop truck, spray bottle loaded and ribbon scissors at the ready.

At the end of the day, having dropped off and set up flowers for three different weddings, I was zonked as we celebrated Cinco De Mayo at the lobby bar (El Jefe) of the ever-so-colorful Saguaro Hotel.  I wasn’t just celebrating the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France, I was celebrating the victory of sitting down.  (BTW, Saguaro folks, that weird banquette thing in the front of the bar could use a little more cush for the tush).

So where am I going with this? I want to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. You see, I am a My Little Flower Shop bride.  Not only did they do the flowers, but were our event planners ensuring our beautiful day was flawless (see the album below). Yesterday I saw only a snapshot of how hard the team works.  We thanked Greg and Al on our wedding day, but this experience taught me to thank My Little Flower Shop over and over, whenever I can. There is no such thing as “too grateful.”

Live well, and love well.



PS – Thanks to all the Wedding Warriors who made Friday’s Dream Wedding possible! You guys are AWESOME!

What Makes A Bride Feel Like A Bride? Her Bouquet.

All brides’ bouquets are very important to the way they feel on their wedding day, but none so much as the women we meet who are here in Palm Springs to elope or have tiny family weddings.  The bouquet is central in making that bride feel no less important than Kate Middleton taking her vows in front of the entire world.  This inspiration board we’re sharing is from an elopement at The Lucy House here in Palm Springs. The bride, in an adorable cocktail style dress, was definitely in love with her bouquet. Oh yeah – and the groom too.  Enjoy.  Photography by Debi Parker.
