MEET THE LADIES
JANINE SOLOMON - LEAD DESIGNER & OWNER
FAVORITE FLOWER: JAPANESE LISIANTHUS
I am a Georgia peach, transplanted to Texas about 25 years ago. My love for flowers was grown deep in the heart of the south planting countless bulbs and flowering plants with my mom and grandmother. Some of my fondest memories were made in the garden feeling the soil beneath my hands, as we planted our family's veggies.
I've always had a knack for creating and crafting because it keeps me busy! Combining my love of fresh flowers, design and foraging for treasures (and Jaelynn) has pulled me right out of retirement.
On my days off, you can find me spending quality time with my husband of 43 years, Lee (we still have date day every Monday), my two sons, and daughter-in-law, and my two precious grandchildren.

FAVORITE FLOWER: CORAL CHARM PEONIES
I'm wifey to the man of my dreams, mommy to two of the most precious little peanuts, and co-lady boss of a business that lets me live my passion every day. A passion that started for me when I designed my first wedding flowers at 15 years old.
I followed my love of design and graduated from Texas A&M with a BA in Horticulture with an emphasis in event planning. I was one of the lucky students who studied under the notorious Jim Johnson. After graduation, I went on to work as an event and wedding coordinator, but floral design was always there pulling me back. In 2012, Janine and I combined our love for blooms and brides and Urban Rubbish was born.
On my days off, you'll find me homeschooling & hanging out with my littles, Lyric & Valon or going on a last minute adventure with them and my sweet hubby Brett.
