The other day I was catching up on Snippet & Ink, one of my favorite blogs for wedding and event inspiration, when a gorgeous table design caught my eye - I loved the subtle, elegant neutrals touched with a playful pop of orange.
Instead of my usual quick scan of the photos, I slowed down to read and find out who was behind the florals. I was thrilled to discover that the talent behind the table was McKenzie Powell Floral & Event Design - right here in my own backyard.
After two years of managing events for an Seattle-area angel investment firm, McKenzie Powell left to launch her own boutique floral & event design studio. "Raised amongst gardens and trained as a graphic designer" McKenzie's joy in flowers comes through in her work space and in her work.
Her philosophy from the age of 10: "Dinner tables are to be lovingly set, candles to be lit. A home (or an event) must be filled with beautiful things." I couldn't agree more, and would love to throw a bash just to work with her.

And if you live on the other side of the world her blog is full of beauty and inspiration. Because one must have sunshine... and a little flower.
