I created an arrangement this week for IEIaustin, which is "focused on creating spaces that celebrate environmentally-inspired art and design". So sustainability is key, and I love them for championing it.
I pulled succulents and kalanchoe plants propagated at East Austin Succulents, clipped begonia and Crested Bear Paw Fern that have been growing in my house for a very long time (does that make them local?? probably not by the strictest standards), artichoke leaves from my garden, and dianella and aloe blooms from landscaping in my front yard. Oh, and of course I had to throw in a pair of horns from a Barbados sheep ram named Big Boy that lived a good life on my parent's acreage in North Texas. What a strange and beautiful combination it turned out to be!

Oh, it was so fun! The food was amazing and the company was lively. Thanks Rhoda, Anna, & Emily for throwing such a wonderful shindig, and asking me to bring some flowers. I can't wait to see the images that Paige Newton shot, especially of the private dining room setup with gold-dipped bottles and taper candles that Emily set up... really magical.

She-N-He Photography always gets great shots... and Melanie is so fun to work with. This gorgeous day at Hummingbird House is no exception.
I love that Melanie captured the Groom and his Men horsing around with the bouquets... they look like quite the crew!
