An in-demand Los Angeles florist shares her essentials for a festive springtime gathering.
The first day of spring is right around the corner, which means flowers will soon be blooming all over. So, when it's time to celebrate the new season, who better to host a spring dinner party than a florist? Our pick is Ariana Lambert Smeraldo, the owner of Lily Lodge. Her chic floral shop is located in Los Angeles, but is named after Smeraldo's family retreat, Lilee Lodge, in north woods of Wisconsin. Fans of Lily Lodge flock to the flower shop known for its elegant, simple flowers delivered in vintage vases and recyclable boxes—a décor decision Smeraldo uses in her own home, too. We asked Smeraldo to gives us a preview of what her spring dinner party would look like.
