Happy Independence Day, y'all!

(We know, we are totally fashionably late.) 

We have spent some time out of the office to celebrate the holiday and refresh with family and friends. While the tiny break was much needed, it is always so nice to get back into the office and back into the swing of things. It's even nicer when there is a gorgeous photo shoot sitting in your inbox upon arrival!

 To say that we get to work with some of the best creatives in Houston is an understatement. We are truly so lucky when it comes to collaborations, that we sometimes have to pinch ourselves. This latest shoot is part of a dinner party series by House of Harper.  Caroline (the creator) is an entertainer extraordinaire, fashion virtuoso and a supermom blogger of two boys.

When Caroline reached out to us to work on this 4th of July inspired event, we immediately started dreaming of an all white floral spread. Keeping all of the flowers the same shade makes such a surprising impact and veers away from the traditional blue and red overload. The massive arrangement that was the centerpiece of the dinner table, featured some of our favorite blooms:

  • garden roses
  • spray roses
  • ranunculus
  • viburnum
  • peonies
  • seasonal greenery

We also provided small cocktail arrangements to adorn the adorable drink station. We fell in love with these small woven basket containers and just had to incorporate them somewhere. A backyard dinner party was the perfect setting. We kept the theme of all white florals for one of them and then filled the other with a heaping amount of viburnum.

Besides working with Caroline and House of Harper, we also got to brush creative shoulders with our long time calligraphy guru friend, Meg Grant. Our flowers got to provide a stunning backdrop for her gorgeous hand lettering. Meg provided menus, place cards and drink containers for the soiree.  

Although we didn't get to enjoy the fare, we can't get over how beautiful all of the catering was. Huge thanks to Smart In The Kitchen for making us crave watermelon all over again. We can't wait until its our turn to taste test these amazing treats.

The sweet lady behind Kate Robinson Photography provided us with all of these gorgeous detailed images. We must say, she sure does know how to make all of our hard work look good- especially in this summer heat!! Make sure you check out more of her work here. 

We hope all of you enjoyed your holiday with family and friends. We are so lucky to be able to celebrate our freedom! Cheers!
