Where the Wild Things Are

There are many ways to say thank you (handwritten note, e-card, sexual favors).

But if you want to ensure a repeat invite, send flowers from the ladies at Studio Choo.

Owners Alethea Harampolis and Jill Pilotte deliver sweet, unfussy arrangements with a vintage feel using local, seasonal flora from Bay Area farmers markets (and, sometimes, Harampolis’s mother’s garden).

Never overcomposed, bouquets have a homemade, just-picked-from-the-wild vibe: Think wreaths of succulents, or bright poppies, anemones, ranunculus, and passion flower vines arranged in jars and handcrafted vases.

Harampolis and Pilotte shop to order, so flowers are as fresh as can be. And the pair can even work with you on your next soiree.

Appreciate the tip?

You’re welcome.
