Dream Job

Floral Designer

September 23rd, 2014

Since moving to Austin eight years ago, floral designer Carly Blair has made quite a name for herself with her innovative and beautiful floral designs at Margot Blair Floral. Specializing in wedding and event designs, Carly describes her work as “edgy, romantic, and simply stunning.” We wholeheartedly agree and have been lucky enough to collaborate with her on a few of our favorite shoots (take a look here). Since I’m sure I’m not the only who has wondered what it would be like to be a floral designer (get paid to play with flowers all day? Sign me up!), we asked Carly to be the latest subject in our Dream Job series. She kindly obliged and invited us to join her for a day in her flower-filled life —  from client meetings to creating jaw-dropping arrangements and squeezing in a little trip to Cali. Hint: the girl loves her coffee.
