Putnam and Putnam

The timing is a bit off – I wrote this a couple of weeks ago but discovered it in m y draft box so obviously it was never published!  I enjoyed the event so much and really wanted to share it with you so here goes…

I’ve been on the road and it’s been a bit of a whirlwind this past week but I’m home now and preparing for a luncheon to be held here OPP next week!  My travels began with a wonderful trip to Memphis where I was lucky enough to attend Happenings put on by The Little Garden Club of Memphis…

The fundraiser for their club featured the talented floral design duo Putnam & Putnam of New York…

My luck even extended to attending a small dinner party the night before the event in honor of Putnam & Putnam.  It was not only a beautiful event held in a gorgeous home and garden attended by a cadre of lovely garden club ladies but an opportunity to get to know these gentlemen on a personal level.   Many thanks to my hostess and to all of the lovely ladies of The Little Garden Club of Memphis for extending this delightful invitation.

Michael and Darroch Putnam fell into the flower business about three years ago.  Michael was working in interior design and Darroch was creating fashion photography when the two began posting photos of Michael’s floral designs on their Instagram account. Folks immediately took notice!  A couple of private dinners were booked for floral designs and an editor from Vogue just happened to be a dinner guest.  An email appeared shortly thereafter with the subject line “Hello from Vogue” and the rest is history.

My photos from the event did not do any justice to their creative talent so I went straight to their website and grabbed some of Darroch’s pics which are much more inspiring…
