how it all began

rachel's love affair with flowers started as a little girl, roller skating around her neighborhood with rubber bands on her wrist, picking flowers from gardens and selling them to her neighbors. Her first real flower job was delivering flowers for Valentine's Day, and from that moment on she knew she wanted to work with flowers. After many years working for a prominent Berkeley florist, she started fioribei floral design studio in 2001. Her work has been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings magazine, Ruffledblog, The Men's Warehouse Prom Guide, as well as countless Bay area weddings and events. She can also be found teaching classes in the art of flower arranging at Handcraft Studio School in Emeryville, CA.


here at fioribei we believe in using seasonal, locally grown flowers. not only are they better, fresher, and longer lasting, but you are getting to enjoy the timely and fleeting beauty of a bloom, just as mother nature intended. also in doing so you are supporting local farmers, something rachel is passionate about after having worked on a farm for over a year.
