Hi friends! Did you all know that I recently moved? Studio C Florals has now moved to a new space in Newport Beach! We are in a lovely studio facing a courtyard full of greenery and seating – appropriately titled Pelican Courtyard after their Pelican Fountain!
Prior to this big move, I had been in my home studio since the founding Studio C Florals in 2014. I have two amazing kiddos at home and always loved the idea of having a home studio – working Moms and Dads, you know how busy but fulfilling this balance can be! However, I knew that the next big step for Studio C Florals was to move to a public venue – I wanted clients to be able to visit me and pick up arrangements not only for pre-thought special occasions but also for day-to-day dinner tables or, just because!
In 2017, I completed flower arrangements for a wedding at the Villa in San Juan Capistrano. It was such a vibrant, colorful wedding with hot pink toned flowers at a gorgeous venue that was different than the usual earth tones I have been doing the last few years – such a fun way to change things up! Fast forward these past two years, and I was approached by Kathy Shaw – building owner of the shops at Pelican Courtyard, and asked if I’d ever thought of opening up my own public Floral Studio! Kathy was so complimentary of my work at that 2017 Villa wedding. She convinced me to tour the shopping center – and from there, I was hooked!
I completely fell in love with the space that was available – it was bright and light and peaceful, just how I want my floral arrangements to make people feel. Not only was the space spectacular, but the neighbors were amazing as well. There is a collective next door to me – Seaside Gallery and Goods – where other private businesswomen such as myself showcase their lines of paintings, clothing, handcrafted jewelry, and more. There is a salon, a esthetician, and soon a Pilates instructor on my other side – all businesswomen welcoming and supporting each other, just the way we should be!
I would love for you to come visit me at my new space – not only will you find it to be super charming, but you will be able to smell and really see the flowers that I always have available for you! I am also in the works of launching my luxury giftbox line that will include items such as candles, chocolates, and of course, flowers.
Come take a sneak peek at those items and say hi! Open 10 – 2 Monday – Friday or by appointment.
Crystal, it’s beautiful! It really is a charming location and so peaceful. You couldn’t have chosen a better location. I’m so excited to see all the creative and beautiful floral arrangements to come from your studio. You’re such a talented floral designer, you will bring great vibes and beauty to the new space. Love your work, congratulations!
