Earlier this summer I traveled west to Marfa, Texas for a floral design workshop with the extremely talented Bows & Arrows team. Even though I'm not a florist, my love for pretty flowers began at a very young age. I remember playing on a co-ed softball team when I was nine and completely scared of boys. To avoid embarrassing myself in front of the boys on my team, I spent more time in the outfield picking flowers than I did actually playing the game. Needless to say my softball career was extremely short lived but my infatuation with flowers continued. Over the course of a few days in Marfa, I learned so much about floral design and photo shoot styling. I left extremely inspired to incorporate more floral design into the events Cake & Confetti creates. Here is a glimpse at the trip shot by Ryan Ray.

If you ever get the itch to explore Marfa, I highly recommend it. It was so dreamy and the perfect backdrop for our floral adventure. I'm already trying to find a reason to go back.
