a little something on the brighter side

Brides tend to shy away from color, and we completely understand why they lean towards that direction.  Quite frankly, we love muted tones.  But!!! We love color too. And a couple weeks ago we got to pair up with the talented team from Little Coterie to create a colorful, fun filled fiesta.

This cheerful wedding was what our portfolio needed to get the Summer months started.  Lots of peonies, ranunculus, and garden roses were in their high end sophisticated mix.  And let's not forget those gorgeous details that the owner of Little Coterie, Courtney, does not shy away from.  Turquoise printed escort cards to gorgeous bride and groom signs to make everything feel thought of and well put together.

the introduction

Maria Elisa Maxit Houston Texas

It's me Maria Elisa Maxit, the owner, lead designer, lover of flowers, chocolate cake, mens cologne, empanadas, music, travel, good laughs and guru or all things Maxit Flower Design.  I have never done an introduction on my blog of myself for many reasons but none that really mater or make too much sense.  In short, I don't like talking about myself, I am what you call an introvert.  

But, I have worked so hard to make this little business work and have poured my heart, soul, and time into everything that you see, that showing how passionate about making this happen was just as important to me as all the other details.  I wanted to show that this work is done by someone just like you.  Hardworking, passionate, fun loving, goofy, God-fearing, girl, just like you.  

Maxit Flower Design was created after 5 years of working in a couple flower shops in Houston.  I spent many days working for event designers who created spectacular large scale events.  After meeting my goal of a 5 year study, I set my sights on creating something of my own.  Something that was solely focused on events and weddings and was curated for the likes of my customers.  I was passionate about creating a hand tailored experience for every customer, a detail oriented design concept that started from the moment we met and carried through the proposal and all the way through to the day of the event.  I wanted to show my clients that every single flower was manicured, every detail was purposeful.

I am truly honored to have the trust of my clients.  I cherish the time spent, during the consultations when everything is up in the air, the late night phone calls, the last minute changes, the texts at 2am thanking me for everything directly after the event...  Everything, everyone of those moments shared with them is amazing.  To receive trust from a complete stranger is something that is truly so beautiful and life changing.  The responsibility of owning this business is something that 5 years of experience could have never prepared me for.  I had no clue what I was getting into.  Thank you for your trust! Thank you to all my past clients and to many more in the future!! I adore you.

Random facts:  I was born in Argentina.  I love dachshunds.  I have an amazing boyfriend, more about him later.  Photography is my second passion and believe I might go professional one day.  I am very sensitive to noises, your food smacking bothers me to no end.  I have two older brothers.  My parents are the coolest people I know. Beautifully manicured fingernails are my weakness.  (The large bag in the pic is my favorite thing I own!)
