Hi Everyone,

It has been eons since my last post.  This is one of the most difficult, yet exciting, posts that I have ever sat down to write.  It is difficult because I am letting go of something that I have held precious for over a decade: I have decided to shut down Parties & Petals in order to move on to my next venture.

I feel blessed to have met so many incredible people whom I am proud to call my friends and for the most supportive husband and amazing family I could ever ask for.   I cannot thank all of you for your support, companionship, advice and love through the years.  You believed in me from the beginning and allowed me to pursue my dream.   It has been a wonderful ride, but the time has come to move on. What a long, strange trip it's been! (Thanks, Jerry!)

Now, that this chapter is ending, I am thrilled at the unknown.  I don’t know what I am going to do, but I know that whatever it is, I will have you by my side.   Stay tuned for updates. Also, if you know if anyone in Southern California who may be in the market for vases, fabric, ribbon, etc., send them my way.  I am liquidating a ton of inventory!  Email me at info@parties-petals.com or call 888 240-4204.

Thanks for all of the memories.  Hope to see you all soon!



Thrilled to see Alannah & Evan's wedding featured on Junebug Weddings!  We loved working with Alannah to create an elegant, romantic floral scene with mixed metallic accents and lots of pretty!  Alannah's bouquet, with its fluffy textural flowers and the addition of champagne-colored garden roses has to be one of my favorites so far this year.

Check out the feature here:  http://junebugweddings.com/wedding-blog/what-junebug-loves/romantic-los-angeles-wedding/


Beyond THRILLED to be featured in the new issue (August/September 2014) of Brides magazine!! Check out Ashley & Donnie's Wedding feature on page 350-351. 


We are so excited to be adding on to our team!  Looking for extra help with event set-up and qualified floral designers.

Hello!  It's been a while since our last post, but we are back and have so many great things to share from events to things that inspire us.  First off, I need to discuss my obsession with flower walls.  Have you seen these?  They have been popping up at various uber-fashionable events.  I cannot get enough of them.  Sure, a room covered entirely in flowers may be a little over the top and budget-busting, but think of each as a statement piece.  A little goes a long way.  How AMAZING would a flower wall be scaled down as a backdrop for a wedding ceremony, sweetheart table, or even cake table?  Here are some of my favorites:

Christian Dior Autumn/Winter 2012/13 Haute Couture show













Dior Haute Couture Raf Simons

























Dior Haute Couture


Piaget Rose Day





































We are dying to do one.  Give us a call to discuss!  :)




Happy Friday!  Trying to get some work done but am having a hard time, especially with this snoozing next to me.  All I want to do is snuggle!

Do you watch Project Runway?  I just watched last week's episode and it was one of my favorite challenges: the unconventional materials challenge.  The episode titled, “The Ultimate Hard and Soft”, asked the designers to create looks that incorporated hard and soft materials sourced from a flower shop and hardware store into their looks.  Some of the outfits were questionable, but it is amazing what they were able to accomplish.  Here are a few of my favorites from the Project Runway Facebook page:
