private residence wedding with keely thorne

This Sunday this lovely couple celebrates their one year anniversary. This is still one of the most memorable events from 2018. It was hosted by the Bride’s family in their gorgeous private home which allowed us to get really creative and produce something super original.

The client’s home had a gorgeous Italian like feel and we wanted to cary that through the event with lush florals and overflowing greenery. Because it was Fall the Bride also requested touches of berries, fruits and tones that would help set the tone.

We got a chance to work with Veronica Beard last week and was one of the highlights of the year. To see two women create a brand that supports and highlights other women is exactly who we want to work with. They are a modern women’s clothing brand that has a little bit of something for everyone.

We love their passion for color and texture and we tried to create florals that would marry those concepts. They asked us to create a floral installation for their entry of their new space and we thought it would be the perfect touch to their new entry way. We got together with our manufacturer and created a structure that would hold this 12’ x 12’ structure. We filled it with a dozen different varieties of faux flowers and greens to create this over flowing tree like structure.

If only it could smell as good as it looked! It took us 4 hrs of set up to make this bad boy come to life. With temperatures in the 90’s we got a good work out and sweat it out. It made it that much more relevant that we used faux flowers to make sure that they would last long enough to be enjoyed. Faux flowers are not our specialty but we enjoy working with them. They have their time and place and completely understand the value of them too. (Side note, they are NOT more affordable than real flowers. Quite the contrary. They are 2-4 times as expensive as the real ones)

We spend our slow season getting inspired and inspiring. It is crucial to our success to see how elements come together. We have to see how certain linens look with chairs and certain plates look with a mix of flowers. All these elements work together to create a cohesive event that our clients truly enjoy.

We are known for our classic look, but we can give you classic with a touch of modern and still create a beautiful event. It is our job to make sure that all elements are cohesive, but combining odd couplings is important too. I think this is when the magic happens.

For this particular table we wanted to create something pre-Fall. You know, the time between blazing hot Summer and Fall. Particularly in the South were Summer seams to drag on forever we love to create these events that help bridge the gap of the seasons.

We designed this with the help of Archive Rentals whom provided the awesome table top pieces and chairs.

How dreamy is the color palate of soft blues and pink together? When designing this tablescape I’ll be honest we were a bit concerned it would come off as a baby shower but when done correctly with elevated touches I feel we made this look happen correctly.

We’ve fallen in love with french blue, it may be one of our favorite colors. It’s basically a new neutral color and we have yet to pair it with another color that didn’t work. The way the darker hue of the candle and lighter hue of the linen mesh with the almost monochromatic flower design makes you feel a certain way.

The combination of a minimal table setting paired with the warm french country tapered candles and soft textures of garden roses and peonies really pulls it all together and makes you feel welcome at this table. On this day we shot somewhere around six different looks with Alicia Yarrish and Your Butlers Pantry and we can’t wait to share more! We love creating and designing looks to inspire our brides with color and how a a certain look makes you feel.

just a little mood

just a little mood

The juxtaposition of the dark and moody dahlias against the light and airiness of the white and blush truly has us swooning. When we were creating this design we knew the french blue linen and blush taper candles needed a little edge and when we popped these gorgeous dahlias into the arrangement we knew we were onto something.

By combing the dark flatware against the french blue linen also provided an edginess we really enjoyed. This inspiration is for that person who loves the feel of light and airy but also loves that moodiness of a dark color palette. Everyone seems to think you have to do one or the other but here, we’ve proven you can have both.

I feel as if this Fall we will see more and more of this darkness and light contrast in weddings and events and we are here for it. We always love a client who is willing to think outside the box with still yet a timeless look.

Summer is coming to a technical end, but we all know too well that Summer lasts for at least another month for us in Houston. I got a chance to enjoy a fun vacation in Hawaii and this event truly captured all things that we felt while spending our time in a tropical paradise. Bright colors, fresh fruits and textures that represent those summery moments we all love.

We have been adding some unexpected elements to our table scapes as we are always on the hunt for something new. This time we added these floral frogs to hold one stem and give a little unexpected texture. And can we get a moment for the tulip ya’ll? That flower on the far right of this image is a tulip! It’s so fun to see it wide open and ready to be the best it can be.

We also have been experimenting with color and wanted to show you more of this. We have noticed that in the last couple years we were starting to get to be known as the white and green design team. And we needed to show you all this gorgeous colorful work we are doing to make sure we bring in those colorful clients too. We love color and hope you do too!

Many clients don’t know that we offer event design services on top of our normal floral design. We still focus our efforts on floral centric clients but add another service that truly pulls everything together.

We have found that clients have a hard time pulling their look together, from invitations, to room layout we take care of all the details that make it cohesive. Floral designers are always the ones that create the finishing touch be we found that our clients were asking us for a little bit more. We heard their needs and over the last 3 years we have been dedicating our selves to meeting those needs.

Our event design clients are ones that have a budget over $10,000 in florals and are looking to complete their look with our guidance. We currently source all our items through partners that we’ve created a close relationship with. From soft seating rentals, to custom hanging installations we believe that having this all under one companies supervision creates a cohesive elevated event, that we are best known for.

Here is one of the more recent clients that we helped with her event design. Meredith was such an easy client that wanted a modern, clean event with high impact. We met a couple times and each time she came with a vision that aligned perfectly with the path we created.

After our fist meeting, we sent over a comprehensive design board that allowed us both to use as a road map. If there were items she wanted to source herself she knew where to go back to for inspiration. This board developed through time as we both added and shifted where we wanted to be. As the vision became more refined the board is edited to make everything cohesive.

We allow our clients to be as involved or as hands off as they desire. We understand when family friends need to create something and have your event more personalized. But we also understand our busier clients that don’t have time or desire to be involved. We love it all and can make magic happen from every angle.

father of the bride

Morgan & Holman were another easy couple, and those are to be celebrated! Truth be told, we never met them until the day before the wedding. The whole wedding was planner with her sister, mother, father and event planner Alyssa Meeks. It was a magical combination of people who loved her and knew her so well that she never needed to involved. To work with such a kind, loving group of people was a highlight of 2019.

The father drew up the floor plans, and worked closely with the tent company to create a space that fit perfectly in their back yard. It was the most seamless extension of their gorgeous home and we couldn’t have felt more fortunate to be the ones that they entrusted.

To design in someones home demands more attention to detail and I am so proud to say, that is what we are known for. Making sure that we are respectful of every space and taking care of their property as if it was ours. Because let’s be real, it’s super intrusive to have all these strangers in your home. We have a responsibility to make sure that they are so comfortable, that they would like us back.

The bride wanted something classic and timeless. She wanted lots of greenery and touches of blush colors to add dimension. We chose a selection of seasonal flowers including roses, garden roses, spray roses, ranunculus, lisianthus and many other seasonal blooms that helped us fill out the arrangements.

When designing the space it was important to do a walk through so that we could see the space and understand how the guests would be walking through the space. As all guests entered they would walk through the front door. And we were so excited to hear that the family was on board with making this a spot that would shine. Focal points where guests feel welcome are so important.

sometimes we don't meet the bride

sometimes we don't meet the bride

Can you have that much trust for your mom, event planner and floral/event designer to not meet with them to plan your wedding? I am not 100% sure if I fall into this category. I can give trust, but this bride gave more than her fare share, and I was left so impressed. From our end of things, it truly makes up step up to the plate as you know she was always setting up for success. Leaving the professionals to do what they love and what they do best.

Who could ask for more?

They got married in The Forrest Club, an old Houston club that has gone through some refreshing updates. Their outdoor space is so under utilized for a ceremony that is was nice to try this out for a change.

pink and yellow: soft summer blend

One of my all time favorite color combinations for a Spring/Summer event is this light blush and buttery tones. It allows you to bring color into a space with out dominating it with an overwhelming bright color palette. This is soothing and can be used for a variety of different events.

Bridal shower, birthday, 40th celebration the options are endless with these color tones. We added some fun textures with a large variety of flowers and with a touch of skeleton leafs that truly made it pop. We used garden roses, ranunculus, alstroemeria, viburnum, spray roses, and anthuriums.

We called in our good friend Kelly Durham to photograph it and here it is, this gorgeous arrangement in all it’s beauty.

rice university wedding

The images speak for themselves, the couple wanted an easy, clean, yet thoughtful wedding. The details came together to create such a unique timeless event. With concrete vessels and acrylic table numbers the clean lines fit so perfectly in their venue.

Did you know Rive University has an event and wedding venue with their very own chapel? You guys have to check it out! It is one of the event industry’s hidden gems and one of my all time favorite spots. As Rice University as your backdrop you can’t go wrong.

The chapel holds less than 100 people and creates a super intimate vibe that allows the couple to fully focus on themselves and the importance of the day. Roughly a block away guests can proceed to the reception with no fuss. The Cohen house is just a skip and a jump away and invites guests in with a gorgeous view of their gardens.

With large windows and room for roughly 200 the space is perfect for the low key couple. Enough room for a small dance floor and lighting that comes through those windows that people travel all around the world to find, this venue is a hidden gem that we love.

We were so excited when this bride wanted to explore a punch of yellow in her color palette as it is not a frequently requested color palette. But we LOVE it! Soft blushes with a buttery yellow create such a gorgeous garden style that we are very well known for. We hope you love this wedding as much as we did.

the corinthian:  modern luxe greens

the corinthian: modern luxe greens

This Corinthian wedding was one for the books. From the understated luxurious elegance of the bride and groom to their fun easy going personality, we would gladly do their wedding over again and again. The brides love of cleans lines and gave us a lot to be creative with.

Michelle and Soo had recently moved to Atlanta to pursue a budding real estate career, but their heart was still in Houston. Most of their family lived here and when they found The Corinthian they new they minds were set on getting married back home.

We met them once and we knew they were the perfect match. Their love for timeless beauty and classic elements and their vision for elevated simplicity was right up our alley. We headed on the design for this event making sure that every rental piece matched their aesthetic. We worked with our local favorites HTX Rentals to create this modern, crisp look.

The tulip tables, acrylic chairs, velvet linens and amazing acrylic head table truly made the room look amazing. We added the floral touches that were mostly greens to accomplish a garden style that was seamless to the overall modern aesthetic. We also wanted to show how these two looks truly look amazing and timeless and believe we accomplished it.

We worked with Kelsey of Spell Events, a local event planner, to create this indoor modern garden wedding and could not be more thrilled with how everything came together.

centennial garden wedding: the oasis in the city

centennial garden wedding: the oasis in the city

Do you know of this gorgeous venue? It is one of our favorites.

This oasis in the city is one of our all time favorite spaces. It has the versatility of a clean space without too much fuss, all in the middle of an urban garden. It has the best of both worlds and allows for our creativity to get to work. With a neutral color palette the space also allows the client to bring in whatever color their heart desires.

We worked with Jennifer Laura Designs, a local event planner, who played a crucial part in putting all the pieces together. Hope you love this one as much as we did as we got to introduce some fun elements that we think turned out perfectly.

What’s more timeless and versatile than an all white china? This is one of the easier china options to change the design aesthetic for hosting year around. Whether its a simple silver or gold monogram or fine line around the edge of the plate. We love this timeless look.

BE INSPIRED BY YOUR CHINA PIECES

This white china inspired this shoot to be entirely white for a chic minimal design. You can’t go wrong using this look anytime of the year. Don’t over think a monochromatic scheme. From here you can add decor, change the candles, or the floral colors to dramatically change the aesthetic. It is a blank canvas.

CHANGE UP THE LINENS

Just by adding two colors to this table scape it made such difference. Sometimes we aren’t sure what direction to go with our linen choices, but as you can see this simple blue monogram napkin adds a classic touch to this minimalistic design. Adding in a touch of blue to the arrangement was the finishing touch in this table scape.

Mottahedeh Tabacco Leaf China on a white Scalloped Charger. Design by Maxit Flower Design. Houston, Texas Floral and Event Production Firm

This is personally one of our favorite classic china patterns. It is a perfect fit for every home or interior. This colorful pattern represents the joy, quality and style. Whether the interior is made in mid-century, industrial, modern or shabby chic style, the tobacco leaf pattern fits it all. Tobacco Leaf, one of the most prized of Chinese Export patterns, was developed circa 1780 and it is still a staple today.

This Mottahedeh print in versatile in many ways. There is such an array of colors to pull from. We chose the navy linen from the darkest blue in the print. The berry napkin from the beautiful tabacco flower in the center and finished it off with touches of gold. Changing each detail of your design when pairing with the Mottahehedeh print is so easy you can’t really go wrong. However you you choose to design your tablescape using the Tabacco Leaf print, you will surely wow your clients or guest with the amount of options there are available.

Our all white flower arrangement was inspired by the ability to take a timeless design and pair it with a modern and monochromatic look. While the pink flowers are seen in a more traditional glass compote that allows the timeless theme to be carried throughout. Because of our love for this print we had fun shooting these two looks in our studio.

southern table scape series: blue and white china

After receiving china, whether it be passed down from a family member or gifted from your wedding registry - we tend to continually set the table the same way over and over again. It’s easy, you already have the design memorized and everything needed. However in this Southern Table Scape Series we want to show you ways to simply change a few minor details for a completely different look.

be inspired by your china pieces

Use your china pieces as the inspiration for your details. This plate’s navy color is repeated in the candles and the blue touches in the floral arrangements. We pulled from the white of the blue and white and layered it with the linen and charger. Don’t over think it, repeat colors makes it easy, timeless and beautiful.

change up the linens

Whether it be in the table linens or the napkins, changing the color and texture of those details can make an impactful difference. For the look bellow, we went for a monochromatic route with the china and linens. Sometimes we are afraid to add a bold linen, but as you can see this blue on blue is so fun and different and truly highlights all the shades of blue in the china.

be bold with color

You can never go wrong with taper candles. Whether it be a more casual place setting or special occasion taper candles add another level of detail to your table setting that can really pull out fun details in your china. This is an easy color detail to continuously change.

update the flowers

And our absolute favorite, getting creative with your flower color options. This is the easiest way to drastically change your table scape, from season to season or occasion. Your flower color choices can change the entire aesthetic.

Committing to another linen, napkin, or charger might not be in the immediate list of to-do’s. Instead, order some flowers for the special dinner in a different color palette that you are used to and watch it quickly transforms a space.

Creating a wedding from scratch is a daunting task. It’s difficult for us, and we do this every day. There are so many decisions to make and considerations to take. One of the more important ones is choosing your flower designer. I don’t have much to say here on this post about how to choose one, as it is as simple as choosing your Dr. Read reviews, ask friends and go to a consultation. Do you like them, do you have an innate trust in them, have you reviewed their work? Great, then book them.

Now what? This is what I want to dive into. And here are 4 tips to making this process as easy and seamless as possible.

1 - Find Your Inspiration

Is there a favorite pattern, color, art work, piece of architecture that inspires you? Is the venue or your dress inspiring the aesthetic? Find the item that inspires you and bring that to your consultation. Designers want to know what we can build from. Give us a little something and let us create from that point.

2 - Get Out of Their Way

Hand over your trust and allow a professional to create. We love your opinions and absolutely need time during our consultation to hear about your vision. When that time is up, we need room to let ideas grow. When hiring someone it is important that you will have complete trust in their abilities. When micro managing a creative the inspiration to create new innovative ideas dwindles.

3 - Communicate

Be truthful with budget and design and communicate any changes that might have occurred. Budgets change, color choices might need to be updated. This is ok. Tell us. Nothing is too late to update and our 30 day out review is a perfect time to make that happen.

4 - Sit Back and Enjoy

After all this work, you deserve to sit back and enjoy. Decision making is tough and we understand how overwhelming it can be. This is where we shine and produce the work we are best known for. Allow us to wow you and make your wildest dreams come true.

We have grown up hearing the saying that goes… “you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with”. This might or might not be true in your life, but in mine I have found it to be mostly true.

We are not immune to this concept in business. To have business owners that build you up, exceed more, challenge you to do more, might be the best thing we can do. We also have to edit the people we keep close. Making sure that the people are striving for more and are not settling in their style, aesthetic, customer service, reputation, and kindness.

You have seen people get in a rut in life, but I have also seen that in business. Spending time with women owned businesses that are growing and achieving great things is electrifying. It is necessary for my soul and my sanity. We need each other and this past week has solidified that for me.

I have been surrounded with event planners that challenge me, build me up, cheer me on and keep me going. Hearing their worries and lifting them up has made the struggles we deal with easier and more palpable. We need each other, and to deny that is to deny yourself one of the more essential parts of business ownership… one another. You need your community of like-minded strong willed humans. And for that I am thankful.

Many times we find that our clients are confused on where to spend their money. We work in a creative industry that allows so much room for flexibility when budget is concerned. But with all budgets, large or small we are convinced that you need to have 3 main area where you should spend your money on your wedding.

ONE - Your bouquet

Sorry gentleman you are being left out of this one, unless you are wanting to cary a bouquet too. This is an important one that I have seen left out. Someone said not too long ago that what’s the point of splurging on a bouquet when they would only be holding it going down the aisle for a couple minutes.

EEK! Where do I begin? Let’s just list off all the monumental shots that your amazing photographer will capture that will have your bouquet. Walking down the aisle with your loved one as you go to meet your partner down the aisle. Your father, uncle, mother, that special person that means the world to you will be walking you down that aisle and that moment will be captured in your memories for a life time.

When you just got done getting married and now walking down the aisle with your life partner. That bouquet is the perfect decor piece. Family, bridal party, your portrait, couple’s portrait, bridesmaids shots, etc all these pics that we so fondly look back on, all have your bouquet. Trust me on this one, you want one and you must hire someone that makes fabulous bouquets.

TWO- Head Table

This is it, once in a life time. (I couldn’t say that with a bouquet as we, in The South, take bridals, so many times our brides does cary a bouquet more than once) But your head table… this is it. The one time that you get to indulge yourself and your immediate family and bridal party with an amazing, over the top experience.

It creates an anchoring spot for the room and it allows you to sit in a moment where all the most abundant florals and decor will be placed.

And let’s face it, the photographer is not capturing every singe table. They will walk into the room and capture the table that has the most decor, where all the details are centrally located.

THREE - Dance Floor

Either creating a hanging installation or a band front. We suggest having this as one of your main focal points. This is where your first dance will be, your father daughter dance and all those fun, gushy speeches will be held. It is the main gathering location for the rest of the evening. Do not leave this are left out.

We have created band fronts, hanging installations and even added 4 pedestals around each side of the dance floor to help create an intimate area where all images are captured. Allow us to be creative and make something that will be captured and remembered for a life time.

is this weird?

Something super odd about myself I must confess. I look back at the work we do and love it more once I have had some time to review. I just looked back on a wedding we did a year ago and I absolutely love it. On the day I thought we produced good work, but I could not get out of my head about a couple things I though we could do better.

As a creative entrepreneur I have to say that I am incredibly hard on myself. I love what I do, but there isn’t a time I don’t think we could have done it better. Not that everyone didn’t do an amazing job and that the client wasn’t super happy. (And that is what is most important!) But that I can improve.

One random thing I got hung up on was during set up was that I didn’t plan for the floral chandeliers needing to fit through the door. Sounds so absurd, but you guys…. they wouldn’t fit through ANY of the front doors. We had to truck them through the whole entire back end of the country club, roughly two city blocks. Ok, maybe just one, but when you have 4 floral chandeliers it started to feel like a stinking marathon.

That happened Friday as we got access a day early. From that moment forward I could not get that out of my head. I began to have a pity party in my head and it would not go away. I lost sleep, and set up on Saturday feeling like I let my team down.

A year later I have perspective, learned lessons, and can totally appreciate the hard work and pieces of flower art we created for our amazing clients.

I never received professional pics, so please excuse the lack of quality. But sometimes we have to still share what we’ve created no matter the quality of images, right? Otherwise how is everyone going to see what we can make happen for you on your special day? Can I get an Amen?!
