🍂This arrangement has me easing into fall with five ingredients. Product used: coxcomb, mistral anemones, dahlias, hellebores, and Charity rose.
Also, anyone else think that coxcomb looks like brains? 🙄

Hello there. I’m Ummehani, just dropping in to tell you more about Beginnings and what exactly it is that I do…Well folks, based on this photo right here we do something with flowers, but boy, oh boy, it’s so much more than that! To be more specific, we blend a unique composition of blooms and craft floral artistry based on your individual personality, style, and story you want to tell your guests. We create the perfect ambiance by pairing these blooms with other decorative elements from our rental collection, specially curated just for you. We come in full gusto, like your personal fairy god mother, and transform the space by twirling clippers, slinging buckets, muscle, brooms and a little bit of our bippity boppity boo flower magic. Our team is hardcore invested in creating the dream event for you- going even beyond that to give you something you didn’t even know you wanted till you saw it. If you’re enticed, reach out, and let’s have a little chat. I would be delighted to meet you ❤️

In between events is the only time I really get to focus on creative research (a pretentious way of saying playing with flowers, but let’s go with research). This one was in anticipation for fall, and featuring some lovely produce: foxglove, snowberries, garden roses, aster matsumoto, blue vitex, astrantia, tulips, and plumosa- designed utilizing pin frogs and my favorite stone bud vases. What visual does this evoke for you?

They say conversation is good for the soul. I agree, albeit a slight distinction. GOOD conversation does wonders for the soul- which is why I talk to my flowers. It’s a perfectly symbiotic relationship: They dont judge me, but quietly accept me as I am, and I provide them with a flow of banter that can be classified as mildly entertaining, a heavy dash of neurotic, and most times just weird. It’s this charming environment I provide that encourages them to bloom so beautifully and lovingly for you ❤️

There’s nothing more fulfilling than an afternoon playing with gloves, pearls, vintage details, and of course- blooms. I can’t deny my inner, regency-era-obsessed self a chance to fawn over all this petal prettiness, and it seems only kind to share it with you too ❤️

Utilizing foliage in an arrangement to make it look natural is an a-r-t in itself. It’s easy to stuff greens in- but to make them look good? Whoooole different ball game, my friend. I’ll often spend more time choosing the greens than I will the blooms. Consider this image with flowering privet, eucalyptus gunnii, and mini Italian pittosporum. These are different foliage types with the correct blend of nuances in texture, color, movement, and shape. During placement, they need to be clustered together in the perfect position for a naturalistic balance, and to provide just the right amount of “oomph” to bring the eye towards the bloom. I think of them as my velvet pillows- you know the ones that carry the shiny tiara for display?? They are just as equally important. All hail the supporting stars.

Study of movement: this piece was a study inspired by the movement of butterflies. Ingredients featured are sweet peas, butterfly ranunculus, clematis pods, and lisianthus. Blooms were chosen for their fluttery shape, the delicacy, velvety feel and translucent veining visible on petals - similar to butterfly wings- and overall stem curvature and movement to create a sense of “weightlessness”. The texture on the clematis pods depict blurry, like something that moved too fast to capture, and I loved that. I feel that it is so important as an artist to create with purpose and intention, and individual studies like these allow us to fine tune our techniques and explore beyond our personal bandwidths of creativity.

✨We’re cool for the summer ✨
Psych. Apparently Demi Lovato is not referring to Texas because it’s h-o-t here. We’ve seen some cool brides before but is extra. I love her for making me laugh till my stomach hurt during her bridal portraits, and also, it’s the first time I met and . So all in all- a fantastically awesome day.

We took a vacation. It was fun. I drank lots of coffee, ate breakfast every day, read books, collected rocks (not sea shells) …overall, did absolutely nothing productive, and it was fabulous. 10/10. Highly recommend.

06/06/2023

I’m not sure when I knew I wanted to work with flowers. It wasn’t an unconscious decision, nor was there a single, defining lightbulb moment. No- it was more like a journey through the waves of what we call life that gently dropped me on the shore where I l needed to be. Hearing other fellow florists’ stories about their respective journeys finds most of us on the same boat- kind of unsure where and how we began, but something inspired us and gave us that nudge to keep going in a certain direction- however deviated that was from our original path- and to keep exploring.
“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.” - Robert Frost.

We get to witness some pretty special moments: J+J tied the knot, lakeside, before a setting sun a cool spring breeze at their family estate’s country club. (I use the word breeze loosely because the wind did not come to play that day). After battling the elements with very ounce of determination we had, securing down all items with locally sourced boulders, we held our breath in anticipation for the ceremony to begin and to proceed(safely).
The wind briefly complied and took a breather with respect to the bride as she stepped out, radiant, and all stood up in her honor. As she walked down the aisle bursting with French blue and champagne blooms, many a tear was shed, and when vows were exchanged at the altar, the setting sun’s rays sprinkled through the trees, and you couldn’t help but feel awe at the moment.
Reception took place underneath a romantic light tent and the party began. Looking at the pictures we received, they definitely danced the night away😉.

Books were my first love and are my secret affairs. Looking back, I feel so nostalgic about my school days, during which, I spent most of my spare time visiting the library. (Yup, I was that girl who skipped lunch and chose to sit in the library and read instead). Digital media wasn’t a prevalent part of the lifestyle back then, and I’m so glad for it. Books fostered my imagination, they educated me and cultivated my understanding about the world and people, and they also brought me and my husband together (A story for another day). It’s not the wildest thing, but my ultimate ideal of blissful contentment is sitting by my window or outside, cup of chai in hand, and a book to explore. What’s yours?

Flowers are my ikigai 🌸. "Ikigai” is a Japanese concept that explores one’s purpose in life and sense of fulfillment in connection with the activities that bring one joy and how it contributes to the world around them. Working with flowers has helped me deal with anxiety, stress, and grief. They’re my escape, my lifeline, my medicine, and my therapy. When all else is going wrong with the world, I know I can steadily rely on my flowers to continue to provide endless beauty and bring joy to the people around me.
They truly are good for the soul❤️

04/07/2023

It’s Ramadan, and as we pass the halfway mark, I think of how this holy month will swiftly fly by, and we will all shift back to our regular universal routines. In this month, we try to be more kind, more mindful of prayer, and more patient with each other, and somehow we strive to embody this while fasting- having less energy, less caffeine in our systems, and less sleep. This relationship in our bodies between our physical being and mental state goes against all expectations of human nature, but yet somehow, here it is ❤️

✨We just wrapped up our busiest season to date✨Trying to juggle everything and working multiple events amidst our move into the studio pushed us rise and meet those challenges. I can’t say we did it gracefully. It was more of a “meet each day’s obstacles as it comes” kind of thing. As my friend Hannah from said, “congratulations on doing the small business thing of figuring out how to do something you’ve never done before!” Well, I’d like to give my team a pat on the back. Seeing this little company slowly grow and bloom and start to find its roots is definitely making me feel proud!

It’s a gloomy, cold, and rainy day in Houston- the land of unpredictable weather. At a time like this, I would love to just curl up by the window and read, or be watching on Netflix, but instead we are doing the Friday dance- running around town for last minute supplies, balloon pick ups, and product hauls. This is where I recall in The Devil wears Prada taking a deep breath and chanting to herself “I love my job, I love my job, I love my job”. 🥲❤️

Dear couples: I genuinely love to meet you. I love to meet your families, your best friends. I love it when the groom comes to support the bride during our consultations, I love seeing how nervous you both are on wedding day when you’re getting ready and you haven’t seen each other yet. I love hearing your vows, and it makes me tear up each time to see the tremendous resolve you have to love each other. I love seeing how happy you are. I love getting hugs from your moms and family members at the end of the night telling me thank you, but really it’s me that’s thankful for getting to be a small part of this momentous occasion in your lives. I’m just a florist, but you always make me feel like I’m on top of the world because of your faith in me, and that feeling is priceless, so thank you!! ❤️

“Her beauty is not the crown. It’s the way she holds it”- Dikshasuman.

One of my favorite pieces that I made for Katie was this intricate floral crown. Delicate, ethereal, and handmade with preserved dried blooms, it was an everlasting piece that became part of her wedding ensemble. Something about wearable flowers always feels deeply personal to create, but this one felt extra special.

Something I promised myself this year was to take the time to explore my roots and find a way to discover and express who I am as an artist and as a designer through my personal journey. When you’re in this sea of content it can be easy to get lost, which, for a while, I felt I had been. It took stepping back, and allowing my self space to find that clarity and realize something was missing. Going forward, I am excited to see where this new chapter leads and what I will discover along the way. I hope to find myself, and be able to share my story with you. ❤️

Swipe next to see the sweetest first look reaction! Kala did a first look with her bridesmaids, and it was oh so special. Seeing her best friends smile, laugh, and cry with joy when they first saw her as a bride is sure to be a treasured memory forever, and it allowed her to take a moment and soak it in with her closest friends right before she walked down the aisle.

As we start getting back to events after a long break, I find myself looking at the mountain load of work coming my way, and I wonder how I will navigate the next few months and make it through the rest of the year. I feel like 2022 just began, and we are already approaching September 😓 On closer examination, I may not have hit all my goals for the year, but I did hit some pretty big ones which I am excited to share soon with you guys, so stay tuned!
