Our dried flower wreaths are much smaller than general wreaths, but they are delicate and refined. A perfect gift for a special occasion.

Tell us about your business.

We specialize in delicate hand made air dried flower wreaths. We grow flowers from seeds to grow flowers to make unusual dried flowers. We grow many California native herbs to add a natural fragrance to our arrangements. Since we're in the sunny and dry Southern California, we can pick flowers to make air dried flowers throughout a year. Freshly made colorful air dried flowers are always stocked in our studio. We make our arrangements after we receive our order(s) to sell our arrangements in the best condition with beautiful color, and ship them within 5 business days. Custom design work needs a minimum 10 business days. A custom card with a handwriting message for special occasions (birthday, anniversary, etc.) can be attached to the arrangement with your request. We plan to sell a kit of dried flower wreaths and dried flowers in the future. Currently we can ship our wreaths only inside the United States. We ship from our local post office.

What makes your business stand out?

We grow our flowers to make our air dried wreaths to create the image of seasons in Southern California. Each wreath represents the impression of our California cottage gardens. Our wreath is a painting with dried flowers. Since it is hand made, each wreath is different and lots of personalities. Our farm does not grow the same flowers in rows. We grow flowers, edibles, herbs and fruit trees in the gardens. Most of our dried flowers are not available in the market. We use countless kinds of air dried flowers for our arrangements. I've been testing each flower to see if they can be dried flowers and remain in good shape for a long time. They are 100% natural and organic with no color spray or preservatives. You can touch our dried flowers they are crispy, fresh and colorful. My customers can return old faded colored wreaths made by us, so we can revive them with colorful dried flowers at very reasonable cost. Our business is sustainable.
