This Texas Independence Day, I look forward to celebrating true to our state’s motto: Friendship.

It wouldn’t be complete without some true Texas icons; the placemats scattered with Texas emblems, a lovely bluebonnet takeaway made by the Texas hallmark, Round Top Collection, as well as other elements to reminisce on our time together with friends and family. I set the scene with a bright arrangement, a nod to our beautiful spring just around the corner, as well as some weathered boots that could tell tales of traversing with the greatest friends. Celebrating friendship doesn’t have to be a big show, I like to incorporate pieces that will start the party off with a story! On special days like this, while celebrating a very special state, we remember our friends and one great thing that ties us together, being Texans!
