What: Transplants: Eclectic Floral Design book release party
Where: Hotel Saint Cecilia
The lowdown: On Thursday, November 30, Transplants: Eclectic Floral Design, the new book from Austin floral designer Antonio Bond, celebrated its release with an enchanting affair at the Hotel Saint Cecilia. As a DJ spun 45s, guests sipped wine and mingled on the hotel's beautiful grounds. Bond created a few special arrangements for the event, which were placed around the celebration as sculptures and tablescapes — some were even nestled in the trees above.
The evening also provided guests with the opportunity to scoop up a copy of Transplants, the gorgeous new 200-page coffee table book featuring Bond's work. The book's photographers, Alison Narro and Houshang Ghaharie, joined guests in the festivities.
Who: Antonio Bond, Emily Waldmann, Tate Donovan, Dan Winters, Alison Narro, Houshang Ghaharie, John-Paul Garrigues, Audrie San Miguel, and Cody Cowan.
