Rare Sparrow is a boutique, custom floral studio located in San Francisco, offering full service floral and event design as well as corporate and personal deliveries. My customers aren't afraid to get a little creative, (or let me do so!), they have a lot of fun, but still want to get their pretty on! They trust me to hear their visions, understand their needs and use my intuition to deliver flowers beyond their wildest expectations. They love it when I do my thing - which is a little bit edgy, a little bit whimsical and a WHOLE LOT romantic. What I love most is realizing my clients visions; whether its classic, bohemian or totally wild! I look forward to helping you realize your floral dreams!
Philosophy: I believe every event should should have it's own personality and that the flowers we choose should speak to yours! Whatever the vision, whether highly detailed or just a vague concept, I will work with you to capture the essence of your event or wedding. I listen to your love stories, your grand plans, dreams and questions to guide the design process. This makes each occasion as unique as you. I truly look forward to working with you on your event or wedding!
