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.

Here are some amazing images from one of those ladies that I hold close. She is rocking it you guys. Nothing is stopping her from achieving her goals and she sets them lofty and big. This year Kate Elizabeth photography started her own photography workshop and I am sincerely cheering her on. This is not a small feet as such projects can feel daunting with our everyday work load.

She mastered it and completely exceeded my expectation on design and aesthetics. Go check out more information on her new formed instagram page HERE.

a fall wedding color palette

I have to admit I have not been a huge fan of the traditional Fall color palettes. What comes to mind are the oh so typical orange, yellow and reds that have been combined in the most painful of ways. In 2018 I was determined to change my view and make Fall fun again.

So off I went to explore color tones that were traditionally seen in weddings and combined them with the best of what Fall has to offer. I grabbed some copper tones with some soft mauvey blushes and mixed them with some seasonal textures that when combined made my heart skip a beat.

We just got these images from the super talented Jen Dillenger and could not wait to share them with you. She captured these flowers perfectly and we are so proud of how everything turned out.

it's all in the details

Sometimes the details is where you find love.  These two rockstars got married in Marfa, Tx last year in a quaint ceremony and the most fun reception.  They are my all time favorite photography artist.  So as these images roll in, you will be getting all my gushy comments. 

The Houston wedding community was on pins and needles waiting to see what photographer they would choose and drum roll please... they Bradford Martens, if you don't know him, now you know.  Check out is work HERE.

Melissa, the bride, requested that the wedding be dainty.  Clearly this picture completely captures that.  So brides, as you plan for your wedding day, don't forget the details.  And most importantly remember to tell your photographer to capture them.

amongst the events

We at Maxit Flower Design are known for our wedding flowers and event flowers, but on occasion we collaborate with other creatives to build our stock images and social media goodies. A couple months ago we collaborated with the very talented Hibiscus Linens to help her with such images.  Her amazing photographer caught her products and our florals just spectacularly.  

These crisp, clean images are something to definitely swoon over and I couldn't be more excited to finally share these!

the view from my seat!!!

You guys everything is coming together and we couldn't be more excited.  Are you as curious as I am about people's day to day?  What does their office look like, what cool computer do they use, items on their desk, etc. ?  Well I am, I always want to know what people are up to, but from afar. :-) And of course that is why social media is so popular, because it quenches our thirst of endless curiosity.  And for the people who know me, I am curious to a fault.

For those of you guys that are exactly like me, here is a shot of my desk.  It's a little staged with the new Silk & Willow ribbon we go it for next week's wedding, but it is exactly what it looks like every day. I have my camera sitting right next to me and fresh flowers at my desk.  After all, I got in the industry of flower designing because I LOVE fresh flowers.  And you might wonder, is it always roses?  YES!!! The more scented the better. 

I placed my desk so I can always face the outside.  If it's sunny, I never turn the lights on.  If as storm is rolling in, I've got a front row seat.  Life is good.
