Ever stroll around the fantastic “Santa Monica Place” on a warm Los Angeles day? It has to be one of my all time favorite summer staples. Get in a little shopping, indulge at one of the complex’s delicious restaurants, and pick up some weekend kitchen supplies at their own farmers market. In addition, Magical Blooms: a quaint flower shop inside of the market boasts some beautiful blooms and spectacular service to match. I simply love picking up an arrangement to place on our kitchen table through the week. I was always curious about learning how to duplicate these small treasures and now I can, as the shop is now offering floral classes in their new floral studio adjacent to their original location!


Unwind in this rather chic and intimate setting filled with the scent of fabulous flowers. The farmers market has a rather modern decor, with plenty of natural wood seating to sit and enjoy a quick bite to eat and espresso in between your classes.


Join in every Tuesday morning from 10-11am or evening from 7-8pm for an abundance of new floral techniques and classes!  Each class has a theme for every week: 1st Tuesday, ABUNDANCE Learn to take a variety of flowers and turn them into a beautiful, abundant arrangement full of life! 2nd Tuesday of the month – HARMONY. Who says certain flowers don’t go together? Learn to create with drastically different colors and textures. 3rd Tuesday of the month – PEACE Learn how to create floral arrangements that bring a sense of peace and serenity into your space. 4th Tuesday of the month – RADICAL  Lets go crazy! Learn to take drastically different flowers and make them work in a beautiful way. A way to stretch the mind and add flair to the room.

The coolest part? Take home your masterpiece at the end of class to enjoy all through the week, or give to someone special!


You will find a healthy mix of tourist and local at this bustling outdoor mall.
