There's a food truck for every palate, so it's only apropos that a former food (well, ice cream) truck has been turned into a mobile florist. The trend mavens at Daily Candy steered us towards Jennifer Kaplan and her sweet (smellin') Flower Truck.

"We are a mobile flower shop, we roll around town and sell flowers and 'to go' vases for a spur of the moment gift or a pick me up for yourself," explains Kaplan on the Truck's site. Freshly cut flowers, ready for your bouquet, are stocked on the colorful truck.

Right now the truck parks on weekends on the Westside, splitting time mostly between Santa Monica, Culver City, and Venice. Follow The Flower Truck on Twitter and Facebook to see where the mobile florist will be bloomin' next.
