clare ashbrook owner of smith and lily floral design


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 stunning 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.
