Petals + Paint at Social House Lake Worth

 My Valentine's arrangement 

My Valentine's arrangement 

Social House Lake Worth hosted a fun Galentine’s Petals + Paint workshop with Jenny Preston of Port + Palm Co. and artist Grace Gdaniec. My aunt owned a floral shop when I was younger, and I wish I had taken an interest in the art of floral design then! I love having fresh flowers at home and often play with Trader Joe’s hydrangeas and mason jars to create a simple, fresh look for the table. I have even tried cutting lemons up to put in the mason jar for a more decorative look for an outdoor bbq. (Pinterest made it look way easier than it was, as usual) 

My childhood friend, Gloria, attended with me and we had a blast. Gloria is a busy bee, working full-timing, completing her Master’s and is involved with Junior League. We went to a Christmas crafting event last year and enjoyed getting away from the craziness of life to hang out and learn a new craft, or at least attempt to.


How to create a flower arrangement at home

  • Greenery
  • Accent flowers
  • Focal Flower
  • Floral or normal scissors
  • Chicken wire or floral tape 
  • Container

Start by creating a cage out of chicken wire or by criss-crossing floral tape over the opening of the container.

Create a base with greenery along the rim of the container. Try not to let the edge show through. You can have pieces of greenery hanging over a bit.

Add height with accent flowers. These flowers had a great color and were fairly sturdy. The droopy looking pink ones were added to give the arrangement a different direction of dimension.

The delicate pink and white flowers stole the show. I tried to add them at different heights, but somewhat near each other. 

Rule of 3: Your eyes are drawn to multiples of three!

A Lajitas, Texas wedding for SMU graduate

I was delighted to work on my first SMU graduate wedding this past year! The McCoys decided on a fun, modern calligraphy style to complement the calligraphy on their wedding invitations. Navy ink on crisp white envelopes is one of my go-to color combinations! My favorite element of their invitation suite is the envelope liner, a nod to their destination wedding in Lajitas, Texas.
