Home Florist

Hi! I’m Melissa, a home florist in the Long Beach, CA area. I’ve always been a creator and I love nothing more than helping other and seeing people smile.
I’ve loved flowers since seeing my grandfather’s giant dinner plate dahlias when I was a kid. Creating with flowers and taking floral courses has always been so enjoyable for me that it didn’t even occur to me that I could make a career out of it. But then Covid hit and I realized that I should be creating more and doing what I love! So here I am!!
With that giving spirit and love of flowers I decided to start my own business in September of 2021 and am committed to learning more sustainable floral practices and implementing them. I’d love to create something beautiful for you!


Sustainable floral designer

Hi friends! Thanks for checking out my website. I’m a certified floral designer working toward becoming sustainable and eco-friendly. What does that mean? Well, it means that I’m trying to eliminate plastics and instead work with items like compostable foams and recyclable wires in my designs. I’m also befriending some really awesome local farmers so I can use locally grown florals and greens. Beautiful designs for you, safe for the planet. It’s a win-win!

While I’ve been trained in the classical designs of floristry, I’m also really interested in the wild side. I love arrangements that follow nature and look fluffy and free!

Floristry is always changing, and so am I! I enjoy taking a new class or trying out a new style. Taking classes and learning new things from florists around the world helps me with trying to keep my designs new and innovative!
