A Little More 
You can say that flowers found Christy. And, not other way around! After a successful career utilizing her degree from University of Georgia’s prestigious Grady School, a 50 year old family flower shop came to her unexpectedly. 
In effort to keep it alive, she relied on the only resources she had... mainly, a deep knowing found inside. Thankful for those days sent to the garden by her grandmother, Margie Tygart; somehow Christy did it. 
Her innate sense of story telling, honesty, authenticity, grace, and a bigger vision effortlessly translate into the magical world of flowers. Her work drips with soulful details full of loose, wild, texture-full abandon.
Christy's appreciation of beauty in all stages of life have made her one of the south’s most sought after designers -- for her balanced, natural, humble, whimsical and cheerfully peculiar approach to art and life. Believing good fun, strong women, genuine kindness, tight friendships and tough families are what make the world go around, she's original, loyal, tenacious, quiet at times and artistic.

Christy's work can be seen in Style Me Pretty front page + Little Black Book, Martha Stewart Weddings, International Destination Weddings & Honeymoons, Southern LIving's Southern Weddings Best Bouquet of the Year, 100 Layer Cake, Weddings Unveiled, The Bridal Theory, Wedding Sparrow, Coastal Living, front cover of Florist's Review Magazine, Pottery Barn Inside & Out blog and more.

 
Christy was named the 2017 Mayesh Design Star, UGA 40 Under 40, ranked among UGA's Bulldog 100 Fastest Growing Businesses. She's represented the USDA on a trade mission to China with American Grown Flowers and presented design demonstrations at the legendary Rosaprima rose farm in Ecuador.
