This day in June was the epitome of Texas weather. Prep began with cool temps of low 70s, then the almost summer heat kicked in with low 90s, followed by a super rain storm and a quick cool off with the evening back to the low 70s. I laugh when I think about this day […]

Polo Bridal Classic

August 1, 2021

Veuve inspired this coastal + classic bridal shower for my sister’s BFF. Fun fact, I too have known Allison since she was 7 years old! To be part of this celebration was so special – to see your childhood friends step into the next chapter of their lives is amazing and makes me so happy! 

Free spirit roses, pink garden + spray roses, orange tulips and touches of pink textures completed this fab bridal luncheon. Also – I must say corsages are NOT dead and if I had it my way, they would be part of everyone’s party + everyday look.

I remember this day vividly – sitting in my garage and brainstorming with my friend discussing her upcoming three-year-old’s birthday party. WE LOVE THEMES, can you tell?! The struggle this day was real – her daughter LOVES hippos, ballet, and disco balls but how do we do all of this and make it cute, you know? We kept bouncing potential ideas, when from the dark corner of the garage we heard a voice from a boy we thought had tuned us out. David (my assistant + boyfriend) emerges and says, “Hippo Disco Party. Put pink tutus on hippos.” WOW – ARE YOU KIDDING ME. We inspired him right?

In the courtyard garden of Hotel Emma, we designed one of my favorite events ever – an intimate wedding and dinner party (ft. champagne tower!!). Trailing the end of the summer, we went with peaches, light pinks, creams, featuring my all favorite all-star lineup of dahlias, garden roses, ranunculus, snapdragons, and some fun greenery. Please enjoy one of my favorite events of 2020!
