Welcome to The Language of Flowers!
We are a family owned and operated business with a charming little shop in Santa Monica, California. We utilize organic, locally grown flowers, when available, and recycled containers with intent to keep our business environmentally conscious. We buy fresh florals everyday, we do not stock one of everything, but a selection of what is freshest and best at market.
We also include the meaning of the flowers and the message of the bouquet in each arrangement.
So you receive more than just flowers: you get a complete, meaningful expression of your feelings, wishes, desires, thoughts, dreams, and inspirations. Check out our floriography dictionary to read the meaning and history of ‘The Language of Flowers’.
