Last weekend I had the pleasure to do a walk through of the Texas Floral Expo with my father-in-law. He is an excellent florist and is well known throughout the state. He asked us to bring his grandson to the Texas Floral Expo to meet his friends and we happily obliged!
Texas Floral Expo
The Texas Floral Expo is an annual convention of the Texas State Florists Association. At the convention they offer classes in floral business and design as well as a product gallery and many displays of new flowers from around the world!
We started off going around the hotel to meet my FIL’s friends. It was so nice to meet them and they were all happy to meet Little A. There were also tons of flowers in the walkways! So beautiful!
The moment I walked into the workshop I knew I should have asked if it was alright to take pictures. Next year I will get permission to take pictures in the workshop because we saw some of the coolest arrangements here. My favorite was a farm themed display with several full sized sheep made of flowers! Another amazing arrangement used vases stacked in a pyramid.
The Texas Floral Expo Product Gallery
Next we went into the product gallery! What an amazing place! I finally got brave and asked if I could take pictures so you can see my favorite displays!
This one I call “The Living Dress.” It was made by Johnsen’s Wholesale Florist, and it was my favorite!
I also loved this heart tree by Alpha Fern!
On the way out we saw this special arrangement designed by Becky Roper. Her arrangement brought back so many memories of growing up in the country! My dad used to take us to look at cotton when we were small and this display reminded me of that.
Sorry I didn’t get more pictures for you all. Hopefully we will get to go to the 2018 Texas Floral Expo and I can do a better job of reporting. I hope you enjoyed the pictures I was able to share and that all these flowers remind you to spend some time outside!
Have you ever found yourself doing something that turned out to be way more amazing than you thought it would be? Tell us about it in the comments!
