Who we are

"Like bees to honey"... we love everything about flowers. In fact the genus Apis means bee in Latin. Our boutique floral and event design studio brings to life spectacular, beautiful arrangements with a rustic-chic, modern and creative edge.

A taste of honey

Jose Ibarra is the founder and creative force behind Apis Floral. His impeccable creations, love for beauty and his passion for architecture make him a true artist. While his floral work may be what he is most notably known for, he encourages clients to think beyond the centerpiece, outside the box. Using this approach he considers the entire environment be it a home, wedding or a corporate setting, Jose makes every event an experience.
