Pink Saturday at the Flower Mart

This week, I needed to go to downtown Los Angeles to buy some mini tiaras for a Princess party this weekend. I brought my friend Sandy, my shopping buddy, and after we got the tiaras we headed down the street to the Flower Mart. I just love the Flower Mart!!! Whenever I am hosting an event (when am I not?), I buy my flowers here.
Upstairs in the Flower Mart is GM Floral. This is where all the fun decor is! Going here at Christmas time is such an inspiration!
Sandy and I have an unusual ribbon fetish!

Is that Zac Efron?
Sandy and I decided we should decorate others peoples homes because there is so many different styles and we can't have them all :).
We could have spent a small fortune in here even though they have wholesale prices.

This is a giant elf hiding in the tree!

This is an upside down ROTATING tree!
I don't think it would go in my home!

Downstairs in the flower mart, it smells just heavenly!

Sandy is picking out some cedar.
I want all of it!

These hydrangeas are gorgeous!

Walt Disney Concert Hall is down the street.
On the way home, we pass through Hollywood.
The Capital Records building always has a giant Christmas tree on the roof. It looks great at night!
Taking a small detour before we head home.
Going through "Beautiful downtown Burbank" where they tape the
"Tonight Show with Jay Leno"
My parents grew up down the street. My mom would go to many television show tapings when she was younger.
Warner Brothers Studios is right next door to NBC.
AAHHH! Our destination! My favorite...Bob's Big Boy for lunch. My parents ate here when they were in high school together. They even have a car hop service and classic car night!
Thanks for coming with me downtown. Hope you found some holiday decorating inspiration.!
Check out all of the other fun pink stuff at Beverly's.
