June & December at the Flower House Detroit by Pot & Box

This October we took the kids to see the most amazing transformation of an old abandoned house in Detroit. The Flower House was dreamed up and orchestrated by Lisa of Pot & Box. She brought together local and national florists from all over the country to cover this house from roof to foundation in flowers. The results were stunning! The one thing the photos didn’t capture was the earthy, flowery smell that filled the rooms throughout the house. My favorite photos are over on The Flower House site that our talented friend and photographer, Heather Saunders took, it’s worth checking out! The neatest part of this project is that now that the event is over, they’ve raised enough money to deconstruct the house with the plan to turn the plot into a flower farm. My hope is that when that happens, people can visit the fields of pretties, all lined up in rows.
