Floral trends are always changing and no one knows that better then floral expert Lachelle Huron, owner of French Inspired Floral. She was an attendee of the recent Texas Floral Expo and we wanted to know all about it and the newest trends! When we met with her she was so excited to share her amazing experience at the expo, from meeting her mentor, greatest inspiration, and former Chief Florist at The White House, Laura Dowling, to learning to think outside the box and create new designs that aren’t her usual lush European garden style. Now, let’s check out some great photos from the expo!

Relaxed & Romantic

“We are seeing the trend is larger, looser, romantic looking blooms. Clients want a more relaxed floral design.”
