As much a product of her roots as the blooms she grows in her fresh-cut garden, Clare is forever influenced by her childhood in the English countryside, where country lanes were lined with cowslip and wildflowers.
The daughter of passionate and knowledgeable gardeners who particularly loved flowers, a respect for nature’s magnificence, and an eye for the best of what she has to offer runs deeply through Clare’s veins. 

Her personal love of events cross-pollinated with her fascination with florals, and thus, Smith & Lily bloomed!

Smith & Lily is a reflection of Clare’s deep connection to the wild and imperfect beauty of nature. Her arrangements — whether for a big event, an intimate soiree, or a simple bouquet for a best friend — blend interesting foliage, locally grown and season blooms, and her signature artful flare. 

The result? Unforgettable florals for your most memorable moments.

Clare currently lives in Sherman Oaks, CA with her family, her pup, Manny, and a sweet little garden of her own.

Meet Clare, Our Florist In Chief

Ben - Studio City

My husband and I had a very clear vision for what we wanted the flowers at our wedding to look like; Clare at Smith & Lily not only understood what we were going for, she took that vision and, with the utmost taste and sensitivity, expanded upon it, delivering a final product that was beyond our expectations. Clare is a true artist and a dream collaborator.

We have worked with Clare for arrangements for an event as well as a workshop we hosted and she is the best of the best! The floral arrangements she delivered for an event we hosted were so extraordinary, guests still comment on how beautiful they were months later. She captured our vision perfectly and they were better than we could have imagined! Above all that, she worked with us to host the most enjoyable workshop EVER!

Working with Clare was such a joy! She sent over great suggestions for color palettes but I left it up to her to come up with the final florals and she created such beautiful floral arrangements for my husband’s birthday dinner. Our guests also loved the flower arrangements!
