'A floral design studio that focuses on using Middle Tennessee and Greater Nashville grown flowers.'

"It's important to uphold your values in all you do - and first and foremost we are stewards of the land. As organic farmers ourselves, we understand the importance of supporting sustainable and organic farming practices and the local economies around us." 

                                                   - C. T. 

As a florist, Christie Tarleton uses what's local and in-season from Nashville/Middle Tennessee flower farmers and often gathers materials herself from the surrounding landscape on her and her husband's organic vegetable farm. In the "off-season" she takes to foraging and responsibly importing from as many small U.S. farms as possible. Her work as a stylist is botanically and seasonally focused, taking cues from nature to bring together the already abundant beauty seasonal flowers have to offer. 

After studying at Parsons New School for Design, Christie has worked with Flower Girl-NYC, Apprenticed at Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture, worked with A Village of Flowers-Nashville, Billy Reid-New York, as well as  her own pop-up shops in Brooklyn, NY + Nashville, TN, to curate her personal style and build her flower experience. She can create a landscape of flowers to accompany your upcoming wedding, dinner party, photoshoot and fashion + interior editorials.
