French-inspired family-style rehearsal dinner inspiration | Hill Country Wedding Florist

There is nothing I love more than gathering around a big farm table for an intimate dinner with friends. As we prepare for Thanksgiving, I feel so blessed to be a part of a community that feels like my home away from home, and friends that have become family. 

I'm grateful that I get to design beautiful things for a living and co-create with like-spirited creatives. I had fun creating a sweet an simple rehearsal dinner inspiration shoot with some super sweet vendor friends recently, at my second office and neighbors on the square, The Root Cellar Bakery + Catering Co. in Downtown San Marcos. This historic space is full of warmth and good vibes, not only because of the amazing smells of fresh-baked goodies (you much try the savory croissants and vegan cinnamon rolls!) but also the friendly and warm staff. When I'm not knee-deep in flower stems, you can find me here dreaming up new ideas and indulging in sweets. :) 

Thank you to Tashira Bradley with Lott of Events for dreaming up this rehearsal dinner shoot, and the always fabulous Kelly Costello Photography for capturing it so beautifully!

Making beautiful tables also inspired me to use some gorgeous wedding leftovers to design my first of three family Thanksgivings at our family ranch in LaGrange, Texas! I loved taking our mismatched decor and making an un-fussy table under the Texas sunshine.

Wishing you and your family many moments of food, fun and fellowship this Thanksgiving!
