A self-taught designer, you could say that flowers found Amy rather than the other way around. After a successful career as a professional ballet dancer, Amy’s innate sense of movement, grace and grand vision translated seamlessly to the magical world of florals and design. At first glance, her signature work evokes a sense of loose, wild abandon while her keen eye and desire for precision have cemented her reputation as one of the south’s most sought-after even designers. Clients, colleagues, and friends alike admire Amy for her balanced approach to art and life. She believes in the power of good fun and strong females make the world go round.
Amy has been recognized as one of the country’s top floral and event designers. Her work has been featured in Martha Stewart weddings, Brides Magazine, HGTV, Vogue, Domino, Architectural Digest and many others. She has collaborated with renowned brands including Home Depot, La Croix and Goop, to name a few. Amy has been a friend of Accent Decor’s for many years and has avidly used our products for her picturesque events.
We love designing in the Bentley Bowl, because of its unique shape – as opposed to urns that are so large and round, this vessel lends itself to arrangements that are large in-scale and height while providing a bit more length to design in. We find this vessel is perfect for alter and grand entrance arrangements (our go-to is styling them on Accent Decor’s Newport Column) – plus, with its long and narrow shape, Bentley can easily be repurposed on guest tables.
The Chelsea Vase is our number one most requested and preferred vessel! Its subtle colors blend with any palette – from bold and colorful to classic neutral and blush. All of our clients (and us!) love how timeless it is; and from a designer standpoint – it is perfect container for creating cascading arrangements.
The Brentmore Stand is another of our clients’ favorite vessels! Our clients prefer a mixture of both low arrangements and tall arrangements; but when it comes to tall arrangements, our clients always voice a concern over guest’ visibility – no one wants their flower arrangements to prevent guests from seeing one another at the table! The Brentmore Stand solves this problem, and allows guests to chat at their table, while also providing height to the room – it’s the perfect addition to any reception! We also love creating a sort of tall “floral runner” by lining an entire Head Table with varying heights of these stands.
The Trinity Votive was a special request from one of our most recent brides! Her and her mother had a very specific look they wanted for their re-scheduled wedding due to COVID. After sending me a photo of their favorite votives, I immediately knew where I could find them – Accent Decor never disappoints when it comes to having a wide variety of vessels, votives and more, and we know we can always find exactly what our clients are looking for or options our clients will love!
We often tell our clients that the easiest way to elevate any space is by adding candlelight – an entrance automatically becomes more inviting and romantic when we style these Stanley Lanterns + varying heights of pillar candles to it! We love their gold finish and how sleek and modern they are!
