Fall is finally here! Officially at least because in Houston the fall weather won't arrive for a while longer! But with the official season shift, we acknowledge that floral decor also shifts towards the deeper, richer "fall" colors and vibe!
Enter Flower Magazine! They have collected floral insight from eight different floral designers and we are so happy to be included on their list! My feature is entitled "A Recipe in Bloom" can be found here! It is a How-To where I outline step-by-step what you need to create your own arrangement like mine! Below you can find a few details from my feature and some of my other favorite designers in the article!
For me, fall means more time hosting family and creating delicious spreads of food! One day while I was shopping at Central Market I fell in love with the colorful selections in the produce aisle and knew that I wanted to utilize the scents and texture I was enjoying into an arrangement! 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!
I had such a fun time crafting this arrangement and capturing my step-by-step process so that YOU can create your own fall arrangement the next time you find yourself in a grocery store with amazing produce! You can check out my full how-to here and I'd love to be tagged in any photos you take of your our creations!
If you'd rather eat your veggies than decorate with them, the article has seven more articles for you to enjoy! I feel so very lucky to be featured with some of my all-time favorite designers!
One designer I admire, Erin Benzakein, has her own flower farm and her contribution to the article "Top Tips for Working With Mums" utilizes many blooms from the chrysanthemum family. You can check out Erin's tips here.
Another personal favorite designer of mines is Joy Thigpen from Atlanta. In Joy's feature, "Fall Out: A Bold Autumn Arrangement", she outlines the materials and steps she took to create the bright and beautiful arrangement below! You can check out Joy's how-to here.
So even if the weather outside does not agree that it is fall yet, you can still utilize florals inside your space to invoke the colors and smell of autumn!
Thank you so much to Flower Magazine for allowing me to be a part of this feature! I hope that you enjoy the insight into my flower design process and that it inspires you to create your own fun fall arrangement. XOXO
