Shopping: The French Bee {Phoenix}

The last place I thought I would find in Phoenix is a shop named The French Bee. It does not seem to me that French and Phoenix go hand in hand. But, let me tell you when you visit Phoenix, you must take in the sights of The French Bee. Currently, Phoenix is home to four French Bee retail locations, in addition to a 12,000 square foot wholesale studio, where the renowned, one-of-a-kind, high-end floral arrangements by owner Michael Hansen are created.

I popped in to the location at 3150 E Camelback Road on my recent visit to Phoenix. It was a $5.00 uber ride from my stay at the Arizona Biltmore. Set in a strip mall, do not let the facade steer you away.

Get ready for some eye candy galore!

If you are a lover of blue and white porcelain, this is the spot for you to visit.

I actually fell in lust for these chairs.

You know how much I love the color green. I love these too.

I loved the tiger-printed pillows. I also love the array of chairs. Oh! And the footstool. Drool worthy!

The arrangements throughout the well-appointed shop were breathtaking. I chose a couple to be shipped home, but the decision was so difficult. Each and everyone is prettier than the last.

Besides the pre-made arrangements, you can also select from the store's wide selection of floral stems.

High-end accessories also fill the nooks, crannies, and extensive shelving displays. Here are some accessories and vignettes throughout the shop.

I will share my purchases in a future blog once I receive my "treats".

The staff also could not be even more accommodating. Customer service really adds to the shopping experience. Here's to some "Phrench in Phoenix".

Be sure to check out The French Bee when in Phoenix. You will not be disappointed.

The French Bee, y'all!


  1. Oh my word, how have I missed this shop. I definitely have it on my list for this week. Thanks so much for the heads up.

  2. Good morning, Ron! Wow, I know you must have been in heaven in that shop! Can't wait to see what you bought! Have a great day! xoxo

  3. Wow, Ron, this shop is amazing! My husband travels to Phoenix monthly on business. The next time I tag along, I am definitely going to make it a point to stop in! Thanks for sharing!

  4. So many pretty things! What a great shop~

  5. Ron,
    I have been in this shop when I was out visiting a friend in Scottsdale. Such beautiful things.
    Glad you could get an Uber ride to shop this fabulous store.
    Hope you are enjoying the pools at the resort with the heat they are having out there.

  6. Gorgeous shop! I hope you came home with lots of goodies!

  7. Well Ron, you are so right. I love this store! it reminds me of our Pottery world down the hill. So much eye candy, it makes you want more... Thanks for sharing this treasure.

  8. Oh la la. Très chic! My kind of shop!!! Sheila

  9. Arizona and I sooo did not get along but that may have been different if I had shopped at this store. How were the prices? knowing they ship, I might do some shopping! I looooove blue and white as you know. But I also love the green and white and the familie rose (I think). Could see those blue and white leopard chairs in your house!

  10. Lawdy I would love to go there sometime...they are probably out of my Social Security Budget but it would be fun to just walk thru.

  11. Beautiful shop, Ron. I hope you are enjoying your vacation.

  12. Wow that is a great place! I couldn't walk out of there empty handed!

  13. Love this place but it is SO expensive. IMO, they are way over priced but every now and again they will have a sale.

  14. This place is a neighborhood gem. As much as I LOVE it (i'm lucky to live right down the street so I see it often), their merchandise is SO expensive. I've purchased a few tiny floral arrangements but have a hard time forking over $200+ for a normal sized bouquet (although beautifully arranged) of flowers.

  15. I am new to the blogging world and just discovered your blog. You have a very beautiful home, and I have enjoyed reading your post on The French Bee. Their items are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing!!!
