LANSON B. JONES FLORAL & EVENTS BEGAN AS A SEED OF AN IDEA ROOTED IN A LOVE FOR GARDEN ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN.
Since our inception, we have been pioneering unique and creative event concepts and executions in Houston, Texas and beyond to destinations in the southwest and southeast. We are a floral design team with a passion for linking our pieces back to the garden. Whether we are clipping bougainvillea straight from the garden to accent a bouquet or cultivating a collection of herb-inspired boutonnieres, the details drive our passion.
We love to create. It is as simple as that. We work with a client directly to learn their vision, concept and aesthetic, pulling out the most important desires and executing it to the utmost detail. Whether you’re in the midst of wedding planning or busy coordinating flowers for an outdoor party, we will work closely with you to create breathtaking, noteworthy décor.

Lora Blackstone- Floral & Event Designer
Lora joins the Lanson B. Jones & Co. Floral + Events team as a Lead Designer with 5 years of design experience. While studying business at Texas A&M University, Lora interned with a Dallas wedding and events floral company and discovered a passion for working with flowers, caring for clients, and concepting event design. This internship sparked a side business that Lora carried on ever since: producing weddings and events on her own time while working in marketing for an interior design firm. When Lora relocated from Dallas to plan her wedding to a Houstonian, she found that joining the Lanson B. Jones team as a lead designer was the leap into a design career that she had been dreaming of. She looks forward to growing the Floral + Events branch of Lanson B. Jones through a creative, detailed, and thoughtful approach to event design.
Megan Chandler – Floral Designer & Event Coordinator
Megan Chandler began her career in the events industry working for one of Charleston, South Carolina’s top planning and design firms. She found her passion working with clients to design, manage and execute their weddings and events, and with the support of an incredible team she forged a path in this highly creative world.
After 4 years and over 75 weddings and events with this East Coast-Based firm, she felt herself called to Texas to begin a new chapter. In May of 2016, she joined the team of Lanson B. Jones & Co., a landscape architecture firm, to pioneer their newest endeavor: floral + event design. Working with this creatively charged company, she rooted her designs with a true-garden inspiration. Using freshly foraged pieces, unique stems, and carefully collected vessels, our team has begun to set the stage in some of Houston’s most exciting venues. We’ve even traveled as far as Brenham, Texas, and Savannah, Georgia.
As Megan and team continue to design flawless soirées, we derive inspiration from our clientele first and foremost. The passion of our company remains friends first, business second. We believe the relationships we establish with brides or clients and their families is the true foundation of a gorgeous design because we take the time to get to know you and what you want to celebrate from style to emotion.
