Summer Lovin'

One of the many joys of owning a floral design company is the opportunity to design for a friend’s wedding.  So when my sweet friend Kathryn Phillips asked me to design for her wedding, I was super excited.  Knowing my friend’s fun sense of fashion and love for the eclectic details, I knew the weddingContinue Reading

The New Red, White and Blue

What would a summer wedding be without vibrant colors!  Our sweet bride, Sara Logan, certainly chose flowers fitting of her fun personality.  Aqua. Bright red.  Pops of yellow and brown.  It was the perfect contrast of colors for their wedding and reception at The Grove in downtown Houston.  The Grove offers a beautiful outdoor ceremonyContinue Reading

Shiny Happy People

From the minute we met with our lovely bride Kim, we knew we would have fun working with her.  We always say that flowers should reflect your individual style, who you are as a person, and that is exactly what she did.  Everything about her wedding spoke of the happy, bubbly, outgoing person she is. Continue Reading

Green With Envy

I love when a bride puts her own twist on things.  Our sweet bride Katie left us green with envy…literally.  She took the ever popular color gray and paired it with a gorgeous green and a tiny pop of very light pink.  To create the vibrant, but soft palate we used hydrangea, ranunculus, scabiosa, kermitContinue Reading

And It Was All Yellow

There is something beautifully modern about using one color in many different textures.  Caleb and Leeann chose a cool gray as their neutral and made it pop with vibrant yellow textures using lemons, oncidium orchids, spider mums and one of my favorite little accents, craspedia (or billy balls as some call them). Thanks to NineContinue Reading

Rustic Wedding

What does one do when your outdoor wedding is met with rain and mud?  Well, if you are a venue like Marburger Farms you move the wedding into one of your old, rustic buildings with just as much charm as the outdoors.  Thanks to Deborah Bradley, wedding coordinator, this past weekend we had the opportunityContinue Reading

Wedding Magic

An outdoor wedding in January?  You bet!  Katie and Josh got married on a beautiful, sunny Sunday on the grounds of Burkeshire Plantation in Conroe.  Katie loved Black Magic Roses and decided to incorporate them throughout the wedding – in the bouquets, Josh’s boutonniere, on the cake, and with Black Magic petals on the tables. Continue Reading

Is This Your First Time Here?

I think that was the question most asked of us as we made our way through the miles that make up the fields of the Round Top/Warrenton antique fair!  Most people were surprised that we have lived this close and never ventured out that way.  I could hear the slight gasp as we would tellContinue Reading

Every Rose Has Its Thorn…

Actually, every rose has many thorns.  Just take a look at our fingers after Valentine’s day and you will see the cuts to prove it.  If women only knew what it took for them to get that lovely arrangement full of roses; they would appreciate them a lot more. And men would appreciate why theyContinue Reading
