History of Samuel's Florist
Established in 1937.
Samuel's Florist was started in 1937 by Samuel Morhaime near the corner of Alameda and Victory as a cash and carry flower stand. In the early 1950's the business was moved into a building at 921 W. Olive (designed by architect John Lautner, a well know student of Frank Lloyd Wright) and became a full-service florist.
Samuel's sons, Billy and Victor joined the business which eventually passed to them and carried on Samuel’s traditions of quality and service as well as being helpful citizens in the community. Both sons were members of many service groups in Burbank, including the Kiwanis, Sertomas, Shriners and Masons. Both Billy and Victor were also active in their respective temples, Temple Sinai and Sephardic Temple Tifereth Israel.
Donna Smith began working with Victor and Billy in 1986 and was instructed not only in floral design but business by both Billy and Victor. She shared their passion for flowers and outstanding customer service. In 1996, Billy passed away and Donna assisted Victor in running the shop until 1998 when Victor retired. Donna took over running of the shop and acquired another long time Burbank florist, Bud's Flowers, and continued operating as Samuel's Florist while became the in house florist for Mount Sinai Memorial Parks. Donna also continued the public service tradition of Samuel, Billy and Victor by supporting many local organizations and directing the Burbank Sidewalk Astronomers, an organization providing free educational events to the public as well as local libraries and schools.
Samuel’s has always stayed true to our beliefs of quality product, outstanding customer service and fair pricing. We value tradition in business and floristry, but we have also kept current with trends and practices. Samuel’s was among the first florists in the Los Angeles area to be fully computerized and have an online presence. We continue to stay abreast of floral trends and design styles while making use of technology.

In 2015, we severed our official relationship with Mount Sinai, although we continue to service our customers with Jewish funerals. In 2017, we moved to a better business model for us, moving from our longtime storefront into a more flexible floral studio. Like many small businesses, a majority of our work came from telephone and online sources and eliminating the store front allows us more freedom to service customers while keeping our prices reasonable.
In recent years, Samuel’s has also started focusing on our place in society and our commitment to the environment which gives us such a beautiful and amazing product to sell. We recycle all of our green and paper waste, buy as much product from local farms as possible, maintain a vase recycling program with customers, and try to limit our use of floral foam as much as we can.
While Samuel's is not owned by the Morhaime family, the staff has continued to be trained with the standards set by Samuel over 75 years ago. Our foundation of honesty, customer relationships, fresh product, artistic design and honest pricing has allowed us to succeed and look forward. While one of the oldest businesses in Burbank, we continue to move forward.
