FLORAL DETAILS: This particular piece is my signature aesthetic: free form, textural and romantic with pops of interesting organic pieces. Negative space and “movement” are important style components in our designs. Arrangement includes two types of ranunculus.

THIS ARRANGEMENT IS SPECIAL BECAUSE Ingredients from this piece are all sourced right here in Preston Hollow. I love encouraging neighbors to find inspiration in our neighborhood. Japanese maple, pittosporum, and nandina foliage are in most back yards. For beautiful blooms, I recommend our neighborhood Central Market. Tom Thumb in our area is another good resource – especially for orchids – well priced and beautiful.

FALL FLORAL TRENDS: The fall forecast for floral trends lean toward muted neutral color palettes: soft taupe, terra cotta, dusty mauve. Dried pampas grass and bleached dried botanicals are popular this season. Nationally, minimalist designs may be trending – but I predict Dallas will pass on that one.

DIFFERENT ABOUT TRENDS THIS YEAR: Floral trends follow current culture. As an event florist, I’m seeing that even though weddings and corporate events are scaled back, “smaller” does not mean “less special.” Clients still want guests to experience the “wow” factor with florals and installations, such as arbors and greenery chandeliers as much as ever.

NEIGHBORS ARE ORDERING: No matter what the current trends may be — Preston Hollow residents still love and order classic, lush florals and “light and airy” garden style designs. Floral subscriptions are more popular with folks spending more time at home.
