Gardens of Bammel Lane Fall Open House

Last week at this time we were having a ball at the Gardens of Bammel Lane's fall open house!  It was such a beautiful night and an incredible line up of vendors.  We love showcasing our inventory at this darling venue and were so excited to show off our mint green mantle in a "mock ceremony" set-up.  Carol and the Something Special in Flowers team blew us away, as usual, with their beautiful floral designs.  Thank you to Ashley from Two Be Wed for organizing the open house and for the Gardens of Bammel for letting us be a part of it!

Vintage Camping Family Session

Hello Lovelies and Happy Monday :-)  We have a very special family session to share.  It is always a treat to get to work with vendors on styling their personal photos because we already know they will come to the table with awesome ideas!   Christa Elyce did not disappoint when she came up with an idea for a fall family camping session incorporating plaids and s'mores!  We provided the tents and props for the shoot and Christa Styled her family perfectly!  Aren't they all just precious?!  Oh, and to top it off Kimberly Chau was the amazing photographer who captured this sweet session!  Enjoy!

Bon Fleur

Last Thursday we hosted a lovely group of floral enthusiasts at the studio for the Bon Fleur Seminar
We spent the night mixing and mingling with old and new friends, eating french sweets, and amongst the incredibly gorgeous floral designs of Houston's own Something Special in Flowers!  Welcome to the photo recap of the event captured by the fabulous Sarah McKenzie!
Guests were greeted at the door by our vintage bicycle overflowing with lucious florals!  A taste of what was waiting inside!
We handmade booklets of floral tips and displayed them in our French market basket
Our schoolhouse chalkboard displayed an array of lovely blooms identified by name and meaning!

A Bridal Shower Fit For a Queen {of hearts!}

This next shower I am about to share is very special to us becuase it is for a client who over the last year has become a dear friend and part of the Recollection family!  We first met Amanda last year when we styled her engagement session.  Since then, we have worked with her on several shoots, and have loved accompanying her on her wedding journey!  When she asked us to help design and implement her "Alice in Wonderland" bridal shower, we were ecstatic!  We worked with her invitation and pinterest board as inspiration and took it from there, desiging the tablescape, floral, place settings, and more!  Amanda has impeccable taste and always dazzles us with her fashion, accessories and personal touches.  To top it off, Archetype attended the shower to photograph the fun, and here is the result!

Venue and Styling: Recollection Vintage Rentals
Photography: Archetype
Macarons: Petite Sweets
Bride's hat: Lisa's Mini Mad Hattery
 Bride's Dress: Besty Johnson
