Handley Breaux Designs | After Hours at the Gardens: Botaniko

If you tell us that Deborah Stone and her daughter Alex are doing something new, chances are that we're the first ones to jump on board. We're such fans of this mother daughter duo! When they started the all-natural skin care line Botaniko, it was no different. I, personally, am an addict of their lavender spray. I douse myself in it before I go to sleep almost every night! So in the planning of the pop-up shop for After Hours at the Gardens, I knew that Botaniko had to be a part of it! We know that y'all will be instant fans as well!
