Haute House Studio July Happenings
The Haute House Studio word of the month is FREEDOM . How lucky are we to live in a part of the world where we get to celebrate independence? FREEDOM has allowed us to start our own small business, reinvent it and grow it again. Our team members all have the independence to work a flexible, varied schedule and do what they love. We feel fortunate always, but as we celebrate our country on the 4th of July, we feel especially lucky to create and invent everyday. Thank you to everyone that has supported us thus far and continues to as we grow and bloom. If you live in the Minneapolis/Edina area, come see us in the Edina 4th of July parade in our signature yellow flower car. To all, we hope you have a safe and happy 4th!

Haute House Gardens - Tips from Marsha
Knowing how to garden, what to plant, and how to take care of all of it can take years of experience. At Marsha's Garden tour on June 19, she taught us the best tips and tricks on how to grow hardy perennials, how and when to divide them and how to achieve color in the garden all-season long. For those of you that attended the garden tour, you are all set, but for everyone else, click here to read her blog post that summarizes the best points. We even included two short videos from the garden tour.
Haute Entertaining
Summertime is the perfect time to experiment with beautifying cocktails and mocktails with florals. While some flowers simply add a visual touch, many enhance the flavor of the drink. We scoured the internet for the best sites and recipes and we loved this one and this one. You can make simple syrups, mixers, muddle the blooms and/or add them as floaters on top of your drink. It's a quick and easy way to "up" your drink game. Happy creating!
Haute House Flower of the Month
The Craspedia flower is sure to brighten anyone's day! We love using craspedia because it's unique shape, texture, and versatility allows it to be added to many different arrangements. A native of Tasmania, New Zealand and Australia, its name come from the Greek word kraspedon for “edging,” referring to the feathery foliage that accompanies its fruit. Nicknames of this flower include billy buttons, billy balls or wollyheads depending on the species.

Two tips: 1). The vibrant yellow color of this bloom fades over time, so make sure you wait to prune them until they are in full bloom and put in water right way. 2.) They work very well as a dried flower. Simply hang them upside down in a cool, dry place.
Haute House Studio: Smart Women Social
On June 25, we hosted a Smart Women Social series at Haute House Studio. It was an amazing night of mingling, connecting and creating. Co-owner Bridget Connell led the group through a fun herb garden class in our signature "Lady Celfie" vases.

What is the Smart Women Social series? It's a group that brings awareness to female-owned businesses in Edina while connecting bold women within our community. Their intention is to foster connections through quarterly social events, partnering with local vendors and businesses to bring brand awareness to our tribe of women. We hope this platform will grow as a resource for women pursuing goals and passions - a network to lean on and learn from through collective experience.
