garden & gun: a long lasting relationship

Several years ago Garden & Gun reached out to do a feature on us. We were over the moon that this amazing, Southern magazine would highlight us. I have known about their work and could not believe they knew who we were. They represent the Southern person. Highlighting both masculine and feminine hobbies, this magazine has a little bit for everyone and that is what I loved the most.

Since this feature, that happened several years back, we have maintained a relationship with them. They have reached out for arrangements and as you will see bellow a fun event where we collaborated to make a special evening.

Garden & Gun just recently also launched an event series that host Southern styled events in locations through out the South. Several months ago they chose Houston to highlight some chefs as Houston is known for their amazing food! We are so luck y to be surrounded by some of the most talented chefs in the States.


We used this super traditional and timeless cement colored garden urn for this bar arrangement to create hight and allow the colors to speak for themselves. Garden & Gun asked for a bright Fall color palette and we delivered. These tones are bright and cheerful, yet keeping the Fall palette in mind.


We used dahlias, lisianthus, garden roses, eucalyptus and fall leaves to make an painterly, artistic arrangements.


Adding the pop of blue was the perfect touch to keep that masculine feel that is so well known from Garden & Gun. It was the perfect contrasting tone and believe it really added so much interest. Taper candles has recently made a come back and we love it. This detail is so classic.


a winter palette revisited: adding blush to the all white table scape


We sure do love an all white event. We are a sucker for a classic look as it allows us to concentrate on details and textures that we love. But there is always room in these classic color palettes to add a little touch of the unexpected.

In the wedding industry we see blush all the time. But have you seen in at an event, private dinner or Holiday party? It’s a rare day. So we though we would bring you inspiration on how to add a small touch that won’t send us to the super feminine side and yet give an all white table scape a bit of a facelift.

Here are three easy ways to add a touch of color to your holiday party.


Let the textures be in the color scheme you are wanting to highlight

We created these arrangements in all white and green and allowed the accents of berries to be in blush. This snuck in the color with out overwhelming the color palette. We also added an unexpected blush/copper texture that we then used through out the decor. These sprayed fern were such a beautiful touch that we then manicured for the place settings.



Add a touch of color in your candles

There are so many color palettes that are not able to be created due to availability of flowers, or even quality of the product we receive. Candles are a guaranteed splash a color that can be added with no fuss.



Add a fabric overlay via a table runner of soft fabric that can be placed over the table.

Adding a layer of fabric on top of the linen helps create an ethereal look that we love. It’s soft and romantic and allows us to add that touch of color. For this specific look we bunched up areas while also allowing the fabric to gently hang of either sides, the front and the back.
