Happy Spring! No better gem to share to celebrate the new season than the most perfect shop in SF by the name of Ampersand. Its bright teal storefront is that of Instagram gold and the two gents that own and run it are just as darling as the flowers they sell.
Aside from the amazing floral scents from just about every direction, the playlist they had playing featured some Band of Horses and Bon Iver, and had me so nostalgic of my Palm Springs wedding. So naturally, when one of the gents (Emerson) came to help me out, I immediately requested a bunch similar to my wedding bouquet. He asked me how much I wanted to spend and a rough idea of what kind of flowers I wanted. I told him $20 and a rustic mix of David Austin (garden) roses, ranunculuses, with a whole lot of greens. What he whipped up in a few short minutes was an absolute dream and looked gorgeous at the house for almost two weeks.
If you're ever in the Mission District near 16th St. BART, make sure you stop by and pay a visit!
