This experience was incredible! I needed flowers for my daughters wedding which was out of town. Misty worked with me to be able to pick up and transport the flowers 5 hours away! She chose flowers that would look phenomenal the day of the venue and they were gorgeous! By far the best decoration of the event! Misty also helped us pack the flowers into our SUV and loaned us a gorgeous vase! Highly recommend!Sent on 03/23/2021
Team of Misty Acres Flower Farm & Floral Design
Owner & Lead Farmer
Interwoven throughout Shannon's family and heritage is a love for beauty and a deep desire to cultivate, explore, laugh & Jesus,
In 2018, Shannon & her husband Dan purchased 11 acres of raw farmland in Marion, Texas. Having both been raised on acreage, they dreamed of raising their kids with room to grow and were excited about adventures to be had. The first step was to build their dream Farmhouse. It was a long 10+ months hunkered down in an RV, but the inconvenience of trailer living was well worth it!
March of 2019, as they settled into their new home, her children grew older, & Shannon’s need to cultivate shifted. The days of changing diapers, no sleep and constant attention changed to school days, more independence and helping hands.
And so the dream continued with a paper drawing, including shade trees, an orchard, bees, a herb garden, large heirloom pumpkins, flowers, chickens, cats, a pavilion, pool & a few guesthouses.
Cue in Covid…with time in excess, the execution of Misty Acres began. It started “small” with the planting of 100+ small poplar trees around the perimeter of the property, and a fetish with potted plants, as the porches, pathways and house were filled with greenery. Then in a whirlwind of ambition and courage Shannon & Misty decided to collaborate on the Slow Farmer Florist adventure together and thus began Misty Acres Flower Farm & Floral Design.

Misty’s love of flowers first began while walking with her grandmother picking zinnias from the garden or wildflowers from the pasture. These childhood bouquets transformed into floral arranging for family and friends which grew into a career in floral design.
Her garden-style floral arrangements are artsy with unexpected natural elements to bring texture and interest. Misty takes florals to the next level by using seasonal local flowers, and interesting color pallets. She guides students through workshops with a passion for nurturing creativity and inspiring others to create their own work of art.
A love of nature and teaching others has been woven into her floral designs. She has studied floral design at the Texas A&M Benz School of Floral Design, and also has attended workshops with nationally recognized floral designers: Holly Chapple of Holly Heider Chapple Designs & Nancy Teasley of Oak & Owl Design Studio and Ella Rose Farm. Using her interpretive guide and floral training she provides insight into the slow flower movement, native flowers, and our environment.
Flower farming is a new adventure that was sparked by her friend Shannon’s need to grow and plant during Covid, but it returns Misty to her rural roots to carry on as a fourth-generation Texan farmer/rancher.
