In the Tradition of the World's Greatest Hotels

While the Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa is working feverishly to complete the revamping of its highly regarded Trellis Spa, the tree-shrouded resort in the midst of Houston is adding to its hospitality portfolio. With not only special events and weddings in mind, Sage ‘n’ Bloom floral design has also opened up shop as The Houstonian’s on-site floral studio.

The exceptional work of floral designer Wendy Du can be seen in the massive and magnificent arrangements that welcome guests as they enter the hotel lobby. Likewise, her work is seen in Tribute, the hotel’s full-size restaurant.

We can’t help be recall the floral extravaganzas of the Four Seasons George V in Paris, the Four Seasons Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills and London’s Claridge’s where renowned floral design house McQueens has an on-site boutique.

Sage ‘n’ Bloom quietly opened in May and has provided flowers for several weddings. But with the COVID-19 situation, Houstonian waited until this past week to launch its official grand opening. With that, glorious bouquets were sent across Houston to a handful of influencers. The one that arrived at my home was delicious in its design reminiscent of an English Garden with roses, ranunculus, Canterbury bells, delphiniums and more.

With blossoms sourced from around the world and from local merchants, the menu of possibilities ranges from show-stopping grand arrangements to mini floral confections perfect for a coffee table or accent piece.

In addition to providing floral arrangements for a variety of occasions and customers, Sage ‘n’ Bloom offers floral design workshops where guests work along side Du for an afternoon of instruction in the flower-decked studio.
