I don’t know how we got so lucky to have Brooke Howsley of Pollen Floral Art as our featured florist at the upcoming warehouse warming party on Feb. 21, but we’re excited nonetheless! Her creations have been featured in Southern Weddings as well as the Austin’s Modern House Tour. Brooke’s whimsy-infused arrangements easily fit into many different design genres, but demand your ogling wherever they glow. No, that’s not a typo. They G.L.O.W.
You’d do well to hire this fabulous lady to help florify your event. Why not sit a while and sip on a little Brooke Q and A, will ya?
What are your favorite Austin haunts?
Oh, there are so many! I lived out of the country for a while, so when I came back I just drove around town visiting all my favorite places… Uncommon Objects for antiques and people watching, Uchiko for sushi, Wheatsville Coop for groceries, VinoVino in Hyde Park for wine and atmosphere and sliders, Daily Juice, Austin Flower Company, and any of the Farmer’s Markets.
What was one of your most memorable meals and why?
I had the pleasure of eating at the soft opening night at Uchi, all those years ago. You could really tell that something special was happening with the presentation and combinations of flavors in the food. It’s still amazing.
