Adding to its already-impressive list of luxe offerings, The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa now boasts an in-house flower shop. Helmed by floral designer Wendy Du, Sage ’n’ Bloom specializes in extravagant arrangements for weddings and events, but also features smaller blooms for customers in search of a simple yet thoughtful gift. Du’s work can be seen throughout the hotel, so be sure to peep her blossoming bouquets while you’re there. 111 N. Post Oak Lane, sagenbloom.‌com
