Isari Flower Studio and Event Design produces unique arrangements for every occasion

Staff Writer

Tam Ashworth is the owner of Isari Flower Studio and Event Design.

Mother’s Day is coming May 8 and Solana Beach’s Isari Flower Studio and Event Design has a bouquet of ideas on how to make the day special for the mom in your life.

“For moms who have everything and you don’t know what to get them, get them exquisite flowers,” hints Isari Flower Studio owner Tam Ashworth.

Isari is celebrating Mother’s Day with a menu of flower arrangements that celebrates “women through the arts,” ranging in price from $75 and up. The “Mother and Daughter” arrangement features perfumed lilacs, sweet peas, tulips, spray roses and other blooms, paired with a box of Belgian chocolates.

The sophisticated “Baroness” comes in a white bowl filled with coral peonies, “magnificent” roses in apricot, peach and soft pale lilacs, and rich green garden foliage accents.

Isari has also partnered with neighboring Trios Gallery for a Mother’s Day special—purchase a unique blown glass vase from Trios and Isari will create a spring bouquet to pair with it.

Ashworth has been working with flowers since 1989. After coming to America by way of Thailand and England, Ashworth got her start working in a floral shop in Los Angeles. She later went out on her own, making a name for herself and eventually becoming the flower studio for the Four Seasons in Carlsbad.

When the resort switched over to residential rentals, she found the space for the studio on scenic Cedros.

“We love being here,” said Ashworth.

In addition to flowers at Isari (which is Ashworth’s full Thai name and pronounced Is-ah-ree), everything in the retail section of the store is for sale—tables, books, vases, candles and artwork.

The place transforms into a studio for photo shoots regularly—this week it was the site of an “urban, cool, Manhattan-style” wedding shoot, complete with Isari’s statement-making flowers and a lush green bridal bouquet held together by twine.

“All weddings are totally different,” said Ashworth. “I think I’m much more versatile than a lot of florists because of the different gamut of arrangements we can do.”

Isari can provide creations for grandiose weddings at the Grand Del Mar to simple beach weddings. Her florals range from romantic and sweet to tropical or “glam chic.”

When she does have time, Ashworth loves understanding the full picture and intent of the wedding, styling every element and every last bit of floral frill for the couple’s special day.

After Mother’s Day, Isari will launch right into the prom season with their beautifully innovative line of corsages and boutonnieres.

“Our corsages are so unique it’s ridiculous,” Ashworth said.

Ashworth encourages teens to check out the flowers online and shoot her an e-mail with a photo of the dress the girl will wear. Ashworth will then work her magic and “snazz it up a little bit.”

“We will make something really fun and different,” Ashworth said.

To learn more, visit or call (858) 345-1701. The studio is at 414 N. Cedros Avenue in Solana Beach.
