Hospitality means making guests feel at home even when far from home. Essential to that feeling is the presence of a trusted network. Knowing Jackson Hole as well as we do, TCCG introduces our guests to our friends – fellow small-businesses with deep roots in the valley who take pride in providing the best service possible.
On a recent photo shoot for a new villa rental, we collaborated with a pair of talented friends: Teton Thai and Jackson Hole Flower Co. Beloved by all, Teton Thai and Jackson Hole Flower Co. epitomize the inspired creativity coursing through our corner of the West. The warm scene they created for TCCG inside the Shooting Star property speaks to their skills as proprietors. Grateful for their participation in the staging, we wanted to share a sketch of each business to inspire holiday homemaking… with the help of our friends.
Husband-and-wife duo Sam and Suchada Johnson enjoy a cult following at their Teton Village eatery, where a hip vibe pairs perfectly with authentic Thai fare. Abuzz all year, Teton Thai boasts a bustling deck business in the summer and a casual-cool après scene come winter. With only 20 seats inside, take-out is an excellent option. On a stormy night, cozy up by the enclosed fire with a cocktail as you await your spicy repast.
Whether planning a special occasion or decorating for the holidays, Jackson Hole Flower Co. creates stylish floral designs reflective of place and personality. From her cabin boutique in downtown Wilson, owner Sue Bullock makes floral magic happen. Ever attune to her surroundings, she pairs native textures with a contemporary aesthetic to create living works of art. Succulents, orchids, grasses and herbs all find a home in her elegant arrangements. Sue also specializes in garden design by translating the palettes people use in their interiors into natural exterior expressions.
Sam, Suchada and Sue share their talents through retail outlets, conveniently located within close range of the Shooting Star villa they helped us stage. Neighbors in Teton Village, Teton Thai sits within walking distance of the villa, and could even be considered en route home after a day on the slopes. Jackson Hole Flower Co. lies in the nearby hamlet of Wilson, a short drive away from Shooting Star. Pair a visit to the blooming boutique with a hearty breakfast at its neighbor Nora’s Fish Creek Inn, a bagel from Pearl Street Bagels down the block, or a supplies stock-up at Hungry Jack’s General Store across the street. Both businesses serve as Westbank mainstays, as convenient as they are creative.
