Summer is in full bloom at Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Market in Waco, Texas. This year, the summer theme is “Flourish,” and Gaines and her team have made that inspiration come alive with beautiful handmade flowers that look like something out of “Alice in Wonderland”.

“Seasonal shifts are so important to us here at Magnolia,” Gaines said in a video posted to Magnolia’s Instagram page. “It’s something that feels not only literal but also very symbolic. So when we get to step into the shop and see that transition from spring to summer, even though both have a lot of color, there is something about summer that feels more saturated; a little more intentional.”

When the Magnolia team sat down last year to think about this summer’s theme, they honed in on just how short and sweet summer can be.

“We just thought about this idea of we have 90 days that we call ‘summer.’ 90 days to grow without abandon, to be wild and free. So when you walk into the market you really see that story played out with these gorgeous handmade flowers.”

Made out of what appears to be paper, the flowers were supposed to have green stems — paint on copper pipe. But when Gaines saw how beautiful the raw copper pipes looked with the delicate handmade flowers, she told the team to leave the stems as they are to create a fun juxtaposition.

“It’s a beautiful moment for me to just step back and really see how gifted this team is at bringing this beauty to life with their hands, with the things that they have dreamed up in their minds,” Gaines said.

“What we’re trying to celebrate is the beauty of every season that we’ve been given,” Gaines continued. “So as you walk throughout the shop you’ll see ‘Flourish’ really come alive in unique, different ways.”

If and when you visit Magnolia Market this summer, you’ll get to see these handcrafted petals up close and recognize just how much hard work and patience went into each one.
