Twine & Dandy is a full service florist based in South Lake Tahoe with an emphasis on the whimsical and wild.
Twine & Dandy is the brain and flower child behind...me! I’m Andi and I started Twine & Dandy in 2013 in San Francisco, CA. I started out by making small plant goods and gifts to sell online through Etsy, arts and crafts fairs, and flea markets. To expand my knowledge and skills as a florist, I completed apprenticeships and classes through Urban Botanica and Studio Choo, two of the top floral studios in SF.
In 2016, I moved to South Lake Tahoe to fully focus on growing my business. I started small, putting together bouquets to sell at local business gatherings, markets, and fairs. Soon, I began delivering flower bouquets and providing floral pieces to small offices, yoga studios, and restaurants. Before I knew it, I landed my first Lake Tahoe wedding! And from there, it hasn’t stopped. It’s been a wild and wonderful journey.
Today, Twine & Dandy is full a service florist with a talented, professional team that pulls all the magic together for weddings and other special events. We love what we do and hope to work with you!
Andi was fantastic to work with, and I am so glad we found her. She worked with me to bring my floral ideas to life for our soft, romantic destination wedding. She made me a gorgeous bouquet, arch piece that was stunning, aisle pieces, a flower crown and bouts/corsages. I booked Andi very early on, but by the time my wedding came around she had worked with my venue several times, and just wowed me with everything she posted on social media, so I knew I was in great hands. My friends went to go pick up my bouquet for first look while I finished getting ready and they were so stunned with it that they wanted me to close my eyes before seeing it. My only regret of the day is I never got to meet her and give her a big hug!

I found Andi on Instagram and hired her because she was a new local florist, plus I loved what I saw on her feed. I am SO glad that I chose Andi because she created floral arrangements that surpassed my wildest dreams. She took abstract, vague descriptions of what I wanted and created exactly what I had hoped for - seriously. When she delivered our bouquets to the bridal suite the day of the wedding, I couldn't believe my eyes and neither could my bridesmaids. The bouquets were impressive, large, perfectly curated and left hearts in our eyes. She captured whimsy and romance not only in the bouquets but also in the boutonnieres, mantelpiece and tablescapes. I received numerous compliments about the floral arrangements and I wish I could have spent more time just staring at the floral pieces. I would recommend Andi and her team to anyone looking for a unique florist that is not only kind and professional but creative and passionate. She is simply amazing.

Andi and Jillian are master artists! I do not have a sense of what flower arrangements should look like and I was blown away at how beautiful our arrangements were. I shared with Andi and Jillian what we liked and what we didn't like and then actually said, do what you think is best with our budget. Their best is beyond incredible. I LOVED our flowers, my bouquet and all the details they added. The arrangements are creative, stunning and they incorporated the items that felt special to us. THANK YOU!
