Maxit Flower Design for flower Magazine, Fall Inspiration DIY Arrangement

Every year my amazing mother encourages me to creating a top 5 list of the most desired accomplishments of the year.  This has dramatically changed my views on my life and to see my goals come true has been amazing if not a little scary.  It's beautiful to see how much power we have to making decision that make things happen.

“If you have a goal, write it down. If you do not write it down, you do not have a goal - you have a wish.”

One of those goals that was written in January of this year was to get featured on flower magazine.  That goal came to fruition this weekend! Eek! Being recognized by a magazine that highlights some of my favorite floral designers has been a dream come true.  Thank you so much flower magazine for the opportunity. Go HERE for the original article and to read more goodies from this issue and so many others from the previous issues.

Here are some pics I snagged from the article, photographed by insanely talented Julie Sofer and to give further credit, the article was produced by the amazing Abby Braswell.

My Inspiration for this design was Houston’s urban, concrete jungle—also known as Central Market. The lush, colorful selection in the produce aisle can be a game changer for a floral designer. Everything from squash to the highly textured kale can be a unique element in an arrangement. Scents really guide me as well. One of my personal secrets is to add herbs to an arrangement for not only the play of colors and textures, but also the intoxicating aromas, which will make others fall in love with the design.
