  “I go directly out into nature and forage,” says Antonio Bond of Transplants Floral, speaking about the artful tangle of cedar driftwood that anchors this abstract, sculpture-like centerpiece he crowned with roses, white peonies, yellow ranunculuses, spherical yellow craspedia (aka “billy balls”), and silver brunia. “Finding just the right piece of wood is a big part of my process.” The preferred florist
of Austin’s modish, LGBT-owned Saint Cecilia and San Jose hotels, Bond also regularly travels throughout the state for wedding clients.

“I added the striped ribbon for a preppy, summer feel,” says Maria Elisa Maxit of Houston’s Maxit Flower Design. “I like to choose bright, cheerful flowers and colors during this time of year.” Evocative of a breezy meadow of Texas wildflowers, Maxit’s design uses parrot tulips, aspidistra leaves, garden roses, hellebores, garden and spray roses, daffodils, privet berries, cymbidium orchids, and dusty miller.
