Blair Brown found her passion for design in the wedding industry five years ago. She began working as an intern for a wedding planner and fell in love with the idea of making a bride's vision a reality. In 2012, Blair was offered a position at a floral and event design company. Within a year, she moved from an intern to the manager and lead floral designer. As a manager, she led a team of five employees, used her knowledge of florals to provide the best arrangements for the clients taste within their budget constraints, and 95% of the clients she consulted with booked. She found that her biggest strength was understanding what a client wants even when given a vague vision. Blair spent three years working with small and large budgets, building custom backdrops, and creating tablescapes. She has chosen to begin a new chapter in her life pursuing the three things she loves the most; design, the outdoors, and dogs.
Blair wants to bring awareness to the importance of protecting and enjoying the outdoors and encouraging individuals to adopt an animal through a creative approach. Blair's three adopted shelter dogs make her time outside more meaningful. She enjoys sharing their love and excitement for the wilderness. She believes that taking animals out of the shelter and outdoors to see the hidden treasures of the world is gratifying, not only for the animals but their humans as well.
As a designer, Blair has been featured on Style Me Pretty, Green Wedding Shoes, 100 Layer Cake, The Knot Magazine, and Grey Likes just to name a few. Her last project "An Enchanted Evening" filled with shades of grey, copper, and gold will be featured soon.
When she's not creating something inspirational, you can find her trying out the latest gear with her dogs, Summit, Liz, and Columbus. Another way she exercises the creative part of her brain by keeping up with the latest fashion trends and going to art museums.
