‘Tis The Season to Decorate Your Door

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, you hear it time and time again. I wholeheartedly believe that. From the message of the season to the holiday décor … I really get into it. The second Halloween ends, I’m ready for that annual viewing of A Christmas Story, and I force my family into compiling their Christmas wishlists.
I think it’s incredibly fun to approach holiday design in a different way every year. Starting at your front door. LBJ floral + events is taking a page from our parent company’s, Lanson B. Jones & Co., book and using the world around us as inspiration. Taking a cue from their impeccable gardens, we’ve come up with 3 unique wreath designs perfect for every taste, style, home and family!
 
Boxwood Wreath:
Using the contemporary approach to holiday design with a black and white bow, we’ve taken this monochromatic Boxwood foliage and woven it into a spiraled wreath for the more modern eye.
Grapevine Wreath:
We’ve taken a grapevine base and woven materials that could be foraged from any garden. The Pampass Grass, Magnolia, and Myrtle create contrasting textures and shades that make this wreath ideal from Thanksgiving to Christmas. To make it more “holiday-y” then after the Thanksgiving season, pop some red berries into the foliage for a transitional pop of red.
Evergreen Wreath:
Using mixed greens and berries, we’ve created a very rustic, seasonal piece. I like using unexpected shades when it comes to holiday design like this pop of tangerine and a neutral ivory bow. It plays off a traditional look with a whimsical elegance.
Let us design a wreath perfect for your style!
Wreath sizes are starting at 24″ all the way up to 36″, and prices are based on design.

An Intimate Affair

An Intimate Affair

Often times, I will travel to our gardens with our landscape design team and become inspired by the work they create and the spaces they inspire. On one such particular day, I was inspired by the languid elegance of this garden in South Hampton. Designed and tailored specifically to the needs of the family, this Oak branch drifted out over a little cutout of gravel, an outdoor room as our team would call it, off of the porch where the family sips their afternoon cocktails. I imagined a small intimate wedding of no more than 20 or so, gathered together on a warm summer night sharing in the love of an “at-home” wedding. So I had to make it!

 

Swift + Company. helped us to pull the look together with their stunning rentals and these blush Silk & Willow napkins offer a contrast to the table creating a softness and picking up some of the floral shades to tie our entire scape together.

What’s a place setting without a beautifully designed menu and what’s a wedding without an invitation? Katie & Co. is one of my favorite stationery spots in town, and she’s one talented graphic designer! Using gold scrolled font, we worked with a plethora of mixed metals from rose gold flatware to gold chairs to silver goblets.

And then our bride … stunning in a romantic and ethereal piece from Ivory Bridal Atelier, she dazzled in this outdoor setting really highlighting the ambiance of this “faux-outdoor gathering.”

 

That talented Kelli Durham pulled it all together with her stunning photos, and now we’re swooning over them. A styled shoot, any designer will tell you, is a chance to flex their creative muscles and to image something outside the everyday – which is the fun that comes with job. And we’re so fortunate to have these amazing gardens in which to set our stage. After all – that clever Anne of Green Gables says, “Because when you are imagining, you might as well imagine something worthwhile.”

Yet Another … Bouquet Breakdown

On Saturday, October 29, we capped off a busy fall wedding season in Hempstead, Texas. Here, we designed hand-laid runners, a breathtaking ceremony altar overlooking a gorgeous little country pond, small touches, and the sweetest autumn bouquet you ever did see. I love the way the colors timed together, and the way these wispy pieces all pulled together to create a “just picked from the garden” dreaminess that we all know and love. Let’s break it down, shall we?
Lisianthus: I love the way Lisianthus blooms move and sway off the stem. When they blow open they create this stunning flutter that delicately just floats off the surface of your bouquet.
Quick Sand Rose: Here, she’s the star of the show! This rose was integrated into the bouquet with another rose called an Earl Gray Rose, each boast a dusty romantic tone. Quick Sand’s tone is more champagne while Earl Gray is more silver. But here, Quick Sand is the prima ballerina!
Olive Leaf: Lately, we’ve seen Olive Leaf dictate our bride’s Pinterest boards. The way these leaves read both misty green on one side and very verdant on the other is a great play on texture, and the way the stems bend and lean gives this foliage a lot of movement ideal for a bouquet.
Gumphria: Gumphria, here in white, is a playful little button shape that flatters these more delicate stems and gives the wildflower look that this outdoor wedding embodied.
Brezilla Berries: To play off of the silver shade of the dusty miller, the Brezilla Berries unify the cool tones and promote a different texture.
Astrantia: Our bride wanted lovely lavender and purple shades woven throughout her day, and Astrantia provides and elegant deeper tone while being a delicate inclusion with it’s wispy nature and fluttery-ness (is that a word? It is now).
Dusty Miller: I often hesitate to include dusty miller when it’s not immersed in water, because it has a tendency to wilt and wilt fast. But, I took a risk here because I felt like it really framed this bouquet and provided a softness that was essential. I believe, the risk paid off … look how pretty!
Lavender: Our bride just wanted Lavender – Lavender everywhere! From the fragrance to the texture to the color, it suited this event so well. So, using the more substantial Spanish Lavender, I carefully timed it throughout the bouquet to pop that subtle dose of purple.
Seeded Eucalyptus: Those Pink House followers know the Seeded Eucalyptus is some of my favorite framing foliage. No different in this case!
Ranunculus: Ranunculus petals are so soft and romantic. They are one of my all time favorites, and in this bouquet we had so many fluttery textures I felt that we needed some roundness to … well … round it out.
Hellebore: Rarely are there stems out there as romantic as Hellebore. The way it bends, folds open to reveal shades of monochromatic tone-on-tone, the multiple little petals on each stem. Golly, she’s a pretty flower, and that bright, bold green was so needed here.
I can’t list enough reasons why I love this bouquet so much, but when I finished it off with just a simple champagne ribbon, I had a feelin similar to what I think “beaming with pride” feels like. I didn’t want to hand it over … occupational hazard it seems!
Cheers!
