About Us

Who we are

Eric and Carolyn are a husband-and-wife design team who specialize in weddings and special events. We are a design studio not a flower shop. As a design studio we focus all of our time on our carefully selected customers and give each of them the attention they need when planning their special day. We hope that from the first time you contact us via an email or phone call that you will feel very special. Our goal is to make sure that every client enjoys the design process just like we did when we planned our own wedding just 38 years ago.

About

Carolyn

Carolyn focuses on sourcing all the beautiful containers and fresh flowers that we use in our designs; allowing our clients to sit back and not worry about any details going untouched.

Our clients are looking for the convenience of getting everything from one designer. If you need floor plans, lighting (candlelight, up light or chandeliers) pipe and drape, ceiling drape, floral walls, a concrete wall accented with paper flowers or a hand painted wall behind your cake we are the design team you are looking for. We can do many design styles organic, modern, industrial, vintage or a combination of two styles. Some of our clients know exactly what they want, and others have no idea. Eric will work with you and help you develop your aesthetic and turn an ordinary place into extraordinary place.

Eric

As our lead designer, Eric is more excited about the design process than ever before. Our brides today challenge him to be more creative and an out of the box thinker. He works with our clients to create something that is truly a reflection of the couple he is working with. Eric’s ultimate goal is for guest to be wowed by the end product and that guest realize from the minute they walk in that all the details are a reflection of the couple just with a designer’s touch.

Eric’s creative background comes from his very talented parents. Thirty-four years ago they opened the doors of Bee’s Flower Shop. They took the first letter of each of their names Bernice Elliott and Eric and came up with the name Bee’s. the logo has changed but the name has stayed the same always reminding us where we started. Eric is a graduate of the Art Institute of Houston. With his degree in design and his family of many talents he has a sharp eye for design, color, balance and harmony all the elements necessary for creating a beautiful event.
