VW Bus

The Blooming Bus

We are a local florist in the DC Metro area that has been in business since 1976, providing fresh blooms, indoor and outdoor plants, inclusive of ecological maintenance services. We provide plant installations, exterior & interior scaping services, as well as design high-end fresh florals, custom décor & furniture for weddings, special events, private residences, and corporations.


Owning a vintage VW flower bus has been a lifelong dream for our owner, Steve Ornstein. An avid car enthusiast for over 40 years, he has combined his passions for vintage automobiles, flowers, and plants, to create a mobile flower and plant shop. Finding the perfect vintage VW bus was the first step on this journey; however, refurbishing it was definitely a time-consuming process. After more than a year in production, the vintage VW flower bus has finally become a reality.
