Fat River Flowers is a flower farm and floral design studio in New Orleans East.

Margee is a flower farmer and the floral designer for Fat River. Eight years ago this vegetable farmer started growing flowers for friend's weddings and hasn't stopped! Margee believes that flowers are not just a luxury, but a way people share love, diversify pollinator habitats and take care of the earth. Farming is a way we not only feed people, but take care of them. Margee is also the Executive Director of SPROUT NOLA.


The Historic Swoop-Duggins House, located in a historic three-story, three-bay, brick house with an attached two-story service wing located in New Orlean’s CBD, offers a private, second floor exclusively for events complete with private entry. For larger events, or guests wishing for a progressive event experience, you may opt to also include the courtyard as well as the entire first floor, Swoop’s dining room and bar, as part of your event.

The Historic Swoop-Duggins House’s event space can be privately accessed by both its own beautiful wooden staircase as well as the courtyard, both leading to the immaculately decorated rooms on the second floor. Rich colors and ornate fabrics complement the artwork that adorns the walls as well as the multiple fireplaces. The “gallery” (a balcony spanning the depth of an entire sidewalk and the full length of the building) allows guests to experience the sites and sounds of New Orleans during your event.

The space at The Historic Swoop-Duggins House provides your guests with a unique event experience in that not only do you have access to the second floor during your event, you have the option to utilize the courtyard as part of your event.
