Parisian Florist – The Flower Shop Joe DiMaggio Used to Send Roses to Marilyn Monroe’s Gravesite for 20 Years

Feb 14th, 2014 | By | Category: This and That

As a child, I remember often hearing about the weekly delivery of roses that Joe DiMaggio sent to the grave of his former wife, Miss Marilyn Monroe, for two full decades.  This was long before my obsession with the blonde bombshell had taken hold, but the gesture stuck with me as an extraordinary act of love, the ultimate valentine, if you will – especially considering that The Yankee Clipper was married to the starlet for less than a year.  So when I recently came across […]

Reed’s House from “Valentine’s Day”

Feb 11th, 2014 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Many moons ago (July 2012 to be exact), Mike, from MovieShotsLA, and I ventured out to Venice for a day of stalking.  Most of our time was spent at the Venice Canals (the history of which you can read here), one of my favorite spots in all of Los Angeles.  As I mentioned in my previous posts about the area, while there, Mike continuously pointed out filming locations as we walked by (the site is chock full of them!).  One locale he identified that I […]

The “Valentine’s Day” Floral Shop

Oct 1st, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

This past weekend I dragged my new husband out to stalk the Burbank storefront that stood in for Siena Bouquet & Cafe – the flower shop/coffee bar belonging to Reed Bennett (aka Ashton Kutcher) in the 2010 romantic comedy Valentine’s Day.  And even though I didn’t particularly like Valentine’s Day all that much – in my eyes it came off as a very poorly executed Love Actually clone – I did absolutely fall in love with Reed’s floral/coffee shop in the movie, mostly due to […]

The Bistro Garden

Aug 12th, 2010 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

A couple of weeks ago, while searching online for different filming locations from The Office, I came across some information about an area restaurant which not only appeared in The Office, but in countless other productions over the years, as well – the Bistro Garden in Studio City.  So, I, of course, dragged the Grim Cheaper right out to stalk it that very weekend!  And I think it is safe to say that we both pretty much fell in love with the place immediately upon […]

The Los Angeles Flower Market from “Valentine’s Day”

May 25th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A few weeks ago, the Grim Cheaper and I headed out to the Original Los Angeles Flower Market in Downtown L.A. to find a florist for our upcoming wedding on August 21st.  For those who don’t live in the area, the Flower Market and surrounding Flower District are something of a phenomenon, the likes of which I’ve never seen replicated anywhere else.  In fact, before moving to Southern California a little over a decade ago, I had no idea that anything like the Flower Market […]
