Flower Arrangements Designs and Our Story

Our Store Front at 1722 Ocean Park Blvd., Santa Monica, CA 90405
This store has been in the same location since the mid 1940's.

We are a local florist that has been in the same neighborhood for over 60 years.  There has been a few owners over the years but our family have owned this flower shop for almost 30 years.   The longest owners in the history of this florist.  

When we came into the flower business in the mid-80's, we had no idea of the family atmosphere and the support our Santa Monica community and loyal clients has given us.    We have seen the impact our flowers has given our clients during the most important life occasions - marriages, births, birthdays, anniversaries, proms, holidays and sympathy.  Many of our clients - we can say are friends and have become part of our florist family.

at Casa Del Mar in Santa Monica.  The Bride wanted a 
simple cluster of white mini-callas and a matching 
boutonniere for the Groom.

Over the years we have grown in our skill and offerings to express our clients feeling with beautifully designed flowers.  We take our job very serious.  We want our floral designs to express our client's sentiments of  joy, comfort, gratitude, congratulatory, excitement, sympathy or apology to a wife, sister, mother, father, child, love-one, friend, acquaintance or business associate.

We have won many national, international and state floral competition design awards over the years with our designs.  Our shop has the distinction of having the only member of the prestigious American Institute of Floral Design in Santa Monica.  AIFD is a international organization and has about 1000 members world-wide.  In the Los Angeles area there are less than 10 members that have the skill to belong to this organization.

Here is just a small sample of the work we do here at Edelweiss Flower Boutique.
