Olive & Blooms Gives

Not only do we love pretty details and gorgeous flowers, we are honored to get to use a percentage of our profits to bless others and give back. Your support of Olive & Blooms allows us to put three children through school in Lily’s birth country, El Salvador.

Lily Roden | Owner

Lily is a Southern California florist specializing in fine art and organic floral design. Her strong attention to detail in florals and decor is evident in just one quick scroll of her Instagram feed. She loves to make the world a brighter place by working with blooms and supporting non-profits along the way.

Friends of Lily know that she is a lover of Jesus, nature, and the Bachelor. She is wife to southern hunk Matthew and recently added “mama” to her list of titles when Camila Jane entered the world. Lily is an immigrant from El Salvador and a UC Berkeley grad—which happens to have inspired the name of her first child: adopted pup Berkeley Mae.

With a bachelor’s degree in sociology and a job in HR, Lily never planned on becoming a florist. Her floral design stemmed from a season of high work stress, and soon she found herself arranging Trader Joe’s flowers during the weekend. Four years of floral design later, she is still as excited as when she created her first bridal bouquet.

Lily doesn’t have clients; she has friends. She considers it the highest honor to be part of their big day and loves the moment when a bride holds her bouquet for the first time.
