About Noshi Floral Design
Amy Yu, a San Francisco native and manga (Japanese comic book) editor by day, is the creator behind Noshi Floral Design. Making floral bouquets and arrangements allows her to share the natural beauty of flowers with others, particularly through events like weddings and birthdays.
"I love seeing that beaming smile on the bride's face when she's holding the bouquet I designed just for her. I enjoy making unique bouquets and arrangements that make people feel special."
Whether you're looking for a custom handmade bouquet and boutonniere set for a civil ceremony at City Hall, a one-of-a-kind flower arrangement for a loved one, or help with the floral decorations for an event, Amy will design something that will suit your budget and style using seasonal flowers and local vendors.
The Story Behind the Noshi
In olden days, noshi (thin strips of abalone that represent longevity) were bundled together and attached to gifts as a symbol of good wishes in Japan. Today, noshi (now primarily thin strips of paper) are still attached to gifts for weddings and other congratulatory events. Amy likes to think of her floral arrangements as symbols of good fortune for the recipient, very much like a noshi.
