Shopping at The San Francisco Flower and Garden Show

Saturday, March 21, 2015



There are so many fantastic vendors at the San Francisco Floral and Garden Show marketplace this year!  Thought I'd share just a few of my favorite stops...

A Silvestri Co. is a manufacturer of fine garden statuary.   They carry statues, fountains, birdbaths, planters, benches and pagodas and are located in San Francisco.  I discovered their booth and loved the variety of painted pots, statuary and beautiful fountains.  Although the large scale painted pieces are mesmerizing, I purchased this adorable bunny sculpture of solid cement- definitely my heaviest, but most charming, souvenir!  It will be the perfect addition to our outdoor table this Easter...


These stylish vases also caught my eye.  Made by Stems Vases, they are available in vertical, horizontal or single stem form.  Simple and elegant, they look stunning with just a few flowers or even a bunch of asparagus added.  A washable acrylic insert holds the contents and slides into the beveled glass and metal vase to create a simple, contemporary look.


PARI Designs creates these beautiful pressed flower notecards and boxes.  So many different varieties of preserved flowers in these artful products...


In the plant market, there are many nurseries and specialty vendors selling orchids, succulents, bulbs and tubers for every flower variety imaginable.  Succulent plants are becoming very popular, and these lovely wall gardens and wreaths from Succulent Gardens show off their variagated beauty.


Monrovia is also onsite with a display of their lovely landscaping plants.  These beautiful plants are available at private nurseries as well, and in my experience, are healthy, high quality plants.  The blue hydrangeas are exquisite!

Garden Design Magazine, a quarterly publication with stunning photography, insightful articles and an artistic book-like presentation is also at the show.  Although I already have a subscription (which I love), I stopped by the booth to take a few blog photos and was talked into posing for one!  So here I am standing by their sign...
