We believe in flowers.

They can change a room, a mood, a day. They create a feeling. They’re the difference
between nothing and something original, between a great story on paper, and one that
actually comes to life. They can be personal, or professional. They say a lot about a
company, a couple, a person or an event, without a sound.

We have a passion for floral design and bring seven years of it with us to everything we
do, whether a big, momentus event or small, intimate gathering. Contact us today to see what we can create for you! Read less

Working with Parties & Petals was an absolute pleasure. Sharmila did an amazing job designing our mandap and centerpieces while keeping our style and budget in mind. I wanted a whimsical design with an Alice in Wonderland influence but still wanted to keep it modern and subtle. The result was a gorgeous garden design for the ceremony and bright fun floral designs for the reception. I had a very small budget to work with, but Sharmila was able to ensure that the design wasn't compromised. She even offered to do certain elements using paper flowers to help cut costs. The only recommendation I have for anyone that hires Parties & Petals is to make sure that you're clear and completely happy with the designs that are agreed upon. Sharmila will work with you and she is willing to go through multiple iterations until you're happy.

Sharmila is warm, fun to work with, passionate about her work, and extremely talented.
Thank you Sharmila! You're awesome!

Oh I absolutely adore Sharmila and her team! Not only are they amazing but even after sending pictures, having a meeting to discuss ideas, and being pretty specific about what my budget and ideas were... they day of the wedding I was blown away by how everything came out. Everything was gorgeous! From the centerpieces to my bouquet- it completely exceeded my expectations. Sharmilla is a gem- she completely understood the style of my wedding and had the perfect suggestions all while staying in the budget which was beyond helpful. I highly recommend Parties & Petals!

Parties & Petals was the florist for my wedding in April 2011. They provided corsages, boutonnieres, bouquets, pew arrangements, cake decorations, and centerpieces, and everything was absolutely beautiful! Sharmila worked closesly with me in order to meet my budget constraints, and we were able to get all of the pieces we needed for a very fair price. Sharmila also worked closely with me to determine what flower types and colors to use, and which to avoid based on my personal preferences. She met me at the church and reception venues ahead of time, so that she was familiar with the settings before the wedding. I would highly recommend Parties & Petals as your wedding florist!!!

I'm so happy with Sharmila of Parties and Petals! She was early for our first meeting and brought samples of ideas to show me. She worked with my budget so I could get everything I imagined. My flowers were gorgeous and the petal decorations, manzanita branches and vases were perfect for the aquarium setting. She picked fantastic flowers for our wedding cake too! I loved how detail oriented she was, like putting big diamonds in the vases at our head table. I'm so excited to see the wedding flowers in my pictures!

My husband and I can't emphasize enough how wonderful it was to work with Sharmila. From the beginning, she was kind, flexible and willing to listen. She put my somewhat vague idea of what I wanted into focus, and it turned out beautifully. Sharmila gently steered me in the right direction when it came to colors (and even helped me choose a complimentary bridesmaid dress color), flower-type, and worked with my budget, as well. Her taste is impeccable. On my wedding day, when I saw the beautiful, lush flowers (especially the giant, stunning arrangements in the ceremony room), I was beyond thrilled. She and her team worked quickly and efficiently - I didn't see any of the "behind the scene" work at all, just the beauty of her creations. Thank you, Sharmila!

Everything looked GORGEOUS. Sharmila took our "sorta" Lord of the Rings theme and created this beautiful elvish atmosphere. I got so many compliments on everything - my bouquet, the centerpieces, the wish tree, the ceremony area...all of it looked amazing. The bridesmaids' bouquets were adorable, and the flower girl lantern looked absolutely delightful. I loved my bouquet so much!

I have a few complaints - the flowers were a little later than promised (but to be fair, a lot of guests hit really bad traffic, and the flowers still arrived in plenty of time to be ready for the ceremony), several pieces fell out of my bouquet, and the gazebo piece that was supposed to be moved over to the reception vanished after the ceremony (I guess because there was no room).

I would still happily recommend Parties & Petals. Sharmila took all my vague ideas and made them a beautiful reality, and she really does give you great value for your money.

Parties & Petals responded with the following comments:

P&P is appalled that there was an issue with the Bride's bouquet. We have never had an issue with a bouquet holding together and we sincerely apologize.
As for ceremony pieces "disappearing." The items was not moved as there was simply no space in the room for it to be moved to. By the time the Bride and Groom were done with pictures, the room was full of guests and any free space taken. We make every attempt to honor our Brides' requests but sometimes they are just not feasible, given the constraints.

Sharmila Gokel Garg of Parties & Petals is a gem!! She has great vision and created a floral visual for our wedding that reflected our personalities perfectly. There was everything from a simple touch, like a few well-placed buds, to elaborate, sculptural floral designs, utilizing bamboo and reeds as vessels for the flowers. My bouquet was amazing, with miniature apples and artichokes along with beautiful pinks and greens. Beyond the flowers, the table elements she created were wonderful as well - silk brocade in the perfect bright fuschia to match our theme. The compliments for her work were endless.

Sharmila made the 140 guest wedding ceremony site gorgeous, complete with Japanese river rocks as well as great bridesmaids bouquets and groomsmen boutonneires. The reception at Castle Green in Pasadena was highlighted by the beautiful creations in the cocktail area, foyer and grand ballroom. I especially liked the table assignments that doubled as favors for the guests - miniature square glass vases filled with tiny river rocks, live lucky bamboo and bright pink nametags/table numbers.

I was extremely pleased with how well she communicated not just with me, but with all of our other vendors as well. The Parties & Petals team was professional, expedient, responsive. I appreciated the great value for the cost as well - hard to find such top-notch artistry at a reasonable cost in a large city such as Los Angeles. I could not have asked for more, and it certainly was a huge part in making out wedding perfect!!

1) Florist: Parties & Petals (Sharmila Gokel - highly recommended!) - My florist was by far my best pick as a vendor. The pictures of the flowers and décor at my wedding really speak for themselves! With very little guidance from me, she picked up a vision and pulled it together to make for a most elegant and vibrant wedding site. All I told her was that I wanted calla lilies, and that I wanted orange to be the dominant color. Here’s a list of some of the things she provided, really, I can’t think of a detail that she did not cover! ·

* Decoration of huge concrete Greek amphitheatre. Flowers and ribbon along the aisle and fabric and flowers draped around the amphitheater. Numerous free standing arrangements with roses at the ceremony, decoration of mandap with orange and red lilies and roses that were beautiful and elegant. We had little Indian lady statues, and even the lady statues had beautiful flower arrangements to hold! Peacock style arrangement at the program table, and coordinating fabric on the tables, the stage, the aisle and along the perimeter.

* Decoration of huge ballroom at the Hilton Pasadena. 15 tall centerpieces with calla lilies, 15 short centerpieces in beautiful copper gold bowls, with lilies and roses. Huge arrangement on the placecard table with lilies, several arrangements on and around the sweetheart table, flowers and décor on the guestbook table. Orange and gold zardosi table squares to snaz up the reception table cloths, and orange and gold napkin treatments to tie it all together. Cake was highlighted within a gold lighted gazebo, courtesy of Parties & Petals, and that gazebo even had orange roses artfully placed on it. The ballroom entrance had lady statutes with flowers, at the foot of which were paisley floor designs in the shape of mango leaves – just beautiful. The cocktail tables, buffet and dessert tables all had smaller arrangements. The décor was beyond my expectations, so elegant, so creative – just beautiful!! I would highly recommend this florist, her work is tasteful and classy, that people are still talking about how beautiful everything was at the wedding. If she can pull off a 300 person wedding and decorate both a ceremony and reception site like ours, she can pull off anything!
