Its a way of life, a sense of community and tradition. Its rocking chairs on front porches and sweet tea. Family and college football. Lightning bugs in a mason jar and recipes passed down from generation to generation. Yes, ma'am. No, sir. Y'all. And maybe even a few "bless your hearts" thrown in for good measure.
And in the South, hospitality is an art form. It means personal touches and always caring about even the smallest of details - fine invitations, the perfect guest favors, hand-written thank you notes.
A native of North Carolina, Elaina moved from Charlotte to St. Petersburg with her husband and dog in 2013. Elaina brings with her a background in both interior design and event planning, and values the importance of personal touches and an attention to detail.
At Cotton & Magnolia, Elaina marries her roots in Southern hospitality with a love for flowers to create natural, garden-style boutique floral designs. Her designs offer an updated, sophisticated look that is eclectic and textural.
Simple. Elegant. Southern-inspired.
