In 1988, working my way through Cal Poly, I stood on the street corners of San Luis Obispo, arranging and selling flowers for a local company. There I fell in love with the art of flowers. Later, my travels to Europe inspired me to take an organic slant on floral design. In 2004 I established my own company, and today my team and I create flowers for everyday, birthdays, anniversaries, engagements, showers, loss, holiday parties, and — most of all — weddings.
Fleur's style can be described as organic, whimsical, romantic or rustic. We have no "signature style" but instead we extract our clients' and brides' and grooms' personalities to create their vision for their designs. We source as many flowers as we can locally. We create flowers in all budgets from $500 through $10,000. No wedding is average however an average floral budget ranges from $1500 to $2500.
Tami's natural ability with flowers includes cut flower design and raising award-winning garden roses. Tami studied interior design at Cal Poly and graduated with a BS in '91. Fleur is the compilation of European flower shop concepts and ideas Tami collected over 20 years. Fleur's studio is in beautiful downtown San Luis Obispo. We service the counties of SLO, SB, Monterey, Fresno, LA, and SF, anywhere in the US, actually, even abroad!
Fleur's approach can be described as "natural" or "organic." We use paper lanterns, umbrellas and string lights, structural floral and non-floral components to create a whimsical, romantic or vintage mood. Our multiple meetings and personal service are designed around the customer's wants and needs.
Fleur designs flowers for everyday, and any special affair such as baby showers, anniversary parties, tea parties and rehearsal dinners.
The idea of Fleur is Tami's translation for European style market flowers; but the innovative efforts that have been put into this flowering business concept have resulted in so much more. We put our heart and soul into every individual design and consultation, and look forward to working with you!

I really wasn't sure what to expect when I was searching for florists online, but on my wedding day the flowers from Fleur were EXACTLY what I wanted. It was nice to see that Tami made my vision a reality! I appreciate that she asked me a lot of questions about what I wanted and was friendly and easy to work with.

I was recommended by Tami to work with Kristen. Kristen was my florist as well as my wedding coordinator. She did above and beyond with meeting with the vendors, contacting everyone, and meeting with them during the site visits. Kristen did a fabulous job! My wedding day was beautiful and and we stuck to the timeline. I'm from out of town, and Kristen even allowed us to ship and store things in her house! She created one bouquet for the bride, and four bridesmaids bouquets and a boutineer for the groom. I loved that she did site visits with the caterer, photographer, and DJ. We met with her and she has an eye for detail. She decorated grape vines for our wedding ceremony. She did a GREAT JOB and I highly recommend her! THANK YOU KRISTEN!

Tami was fantastic to work with! When I met with her, all I had was a general color palette and rustic theme but I didn't really know what kinds of flowers would look best. Tami was full of wonderful suggestions for what kinds of flowers would fit with the colors/theme and also be affordable. We gave her a budget, and she worked within that budget and produced really beautiful bouquets and arrangements that made our ceremony and reception spaces pop!
Tami's creativity allows her to design amazing arrangements that add a special touch to any event!
Tami with Fleur is so awesome! She is so sweet and incredibly creative! The few weddings I've done with her have had beautiful arrangements and my brides were very pleased! Call her today to see what she can do to make your wedding really stand out!
Tami at Fleur-Very Pretty Flowers is an amazing florist...so much so that I will be using her for my own wedding next year! I brought her a picture of a bridal bouquet that I really loved, then all I had to do was sit back and watch her put together a package that was exactly what I envisioned. She is so much fun, very energetic, and obviously loves what she does! I highly recommend her services!
