Botanicamuse designs whimsical, luxury florals for weddings and events throughout San Diego and Southern California.

We gather inspiration from art and architecture, weaving principles of color theory into our floral and event installations. We hand-select each botanical ingredient, with the utmost attention to color, texture, scent, and movement. The Botanicamuse client places their trust in our team and knows we will bring their vision to life and exceed their expectations. We value quality over quantity and take on a limited number of clients and projects per season.

We enjoy the challenge of creating from scratch or embellishing upon a selected theme. We utilize vintage and modern vessels, conceptualize and fabricate custom-made installation pieces, and lead with a heart-centered approach to service. We are fully insured and licensed.

Botanicamuse events dazzle with warmth and personality. We hope to spark a sense of wonder, crafting a one-of-a-kind, customized atmosphere to savor and recall for years to come.

My name is Madeleine Shelton and I am the owner of Botanicamuse. I fell in love with floristry five years ago while living in San Francisco.

I am deeply passionate about design. I enjoy working with local farms and global suppliers, I source floral varieties for each individual project, using color, texture, shape, and scent as my guiding principles. I love developing unusual color palettes and sourcing one-of-a-kind vessels.

I am equally as invested in offering my clients exemplary customer service. I dedicate my time and energy into creating environments that reflect the setting, season and occasion. For this reason, I take on a limited number of wedding and event clients per year so I can offer a high-touch level of service.

When I don’t have flowers in my hands, I can be found practicing yoga, catching a concert, enjoying gin and whiskey cocktails, and traveling both near and far. Favorite places include Medellin and Cartagena in Colombia and the Cinque Terre in Italy. I am an avid listener of the Crime Junkie and New York Time’s Modern Love podcasts. I very much look forward to getting to know you and creating a space that is beyond your wildest dreams.
