Teri Brand opened Twigs in the fall of 2008, but she had been working out of her garage as a floral consultant for weddings since 2000. Her vision for a retail location was based on curating American-made products for the home and garden, with a special interest in promoting local artisans. Twigs has also evolved as an authority on fairy and miniature gardening, stocking miniature plant varieties, fairy garden accessories and offering classes in the art of creating enchanting miniature worlds.
True to it's beginning, Twigs by Teri continues to be a full service florist offering comprehensive floral capabilities for weddings and special events, as well as catering to retail customers who can walk in and pick up a unique floral arrangements, bouquets, corsages or boutonnieres on the spot. Customers have a choice of ordering in person, over the phone or online and Twigs will deliver flowers throughout San Diego and Southern Orange County.
And the name, Twigs? Not botanical in origin at all. Twigs is the childhood nickname Teri's Dad bestowed on her because of her long, skinny legs!
