to say i “love” KAT FLOWER does not really begin to express my respect & appreciation for her…recently i had the honor of shooting the national cover & fashion spread for THE KNOT…yes THE KNOT…i still can hardly believe it (keep an eye for the fall cover & you’ll see what i mean)…anyhow, KAT FLOWER was kind enough to fly out to LOS ANGELES from NEW YORK on a moments notice to do the floral styling for THE KNOT editorial shoot…we worked a long beautiful day…anyhow, after most shoots i head home & leave all the flowers & decor behind…but this was different…you see KAT FLOWER was staying with me…so her and ALL the flowers came home with us…the next morning KAT conducted a impromptu flower class with my daughters…it was a thing of beauty…what i most loved was how KAT treated them like adults, explaing how & where to cut the flowers etc…she offered her thoughts on arranging but mostly encouraged my girls to do whatever they wanted…the end result was just perfection & everything smelled as beautiful as it looked…thank you KAT FLOWER…xoxo

a little more sweetness...

    how cool is that?! It looks like good family fun. Those flowers look so FRESH, as in cool. I can't wait to see the Knot cover. And yes, Kat is great to work with. I've had the pleasure once, so far ;-)

    [...] This is the best time of the year in Sweden and finally the slowers are blooming outside and indoors. I was so inspired reading Elizabeth Messina’s blog this morning about KAT FLOWER. [...]
