Flower Duet Heart Aeriums

Heart Aeriums as alternatives to a dozen red roses – By Flower Duet

As fea­tured in an arti­cle enti­tled, Shower your Valentine’s Day love with California-grown blos­soms, by Slow Flow­ers founder Debra Prinz­ing in The Los Ange­les Times on February 7, 2015, Flower Duet cre­ated a locally sourced Valentine’s Day gift with air plants, AKA tilland­sias, grown in our own South Bay neigh­bor­hood by local world-renown breeder.

This long-lasting plant duo rep­re­sents bud­ding love. Each aerium fea­tures two types of liv­ing air plants, Span­ish Moss and a flow­er­ing Tilland­sia. Each Valentine’s gift fea­tured a heart theme, red twine to hang the mini air gar­den, two liv­ing plants and pas­sion­ate red moss.

Floral Crowns

Stacey Stewart of Sweet Pea Parties submitted Misha’s first birthday party at the Bel Air Bay Club with some more wonderful photos of our floral crowns and balloon-themed florals. Balloon-loving baby Misha got the first birthday party of her mom’s dreams when we pulled together a hot air balloon themed bash.

With a wide open lawn and amazing ocean view, the Bel Air Bay Club provided the perfect backdrop for the girly affair. A mini hot air balloon at the party entrance set the stage for what was to come, and made a fabulous photo booth.  In addition to flower crowns and silhouettes, the babies were gifted with personalized piggy banks and bigger kids received gumball machines filled with pretzel M & Ms.
