Bespoke Florida Design is the brainchild of Key West Native Natalie McIntyre and is a true culmination of her lifelong love affair with pretty things. McIntyre spent her childhood roaming the streets of Key West picking and plundering plumerias, gardenias, and any array of local foliage she could get her hands on (with permission of course). When she wasn’t busy hoarding blooms and making flower crowns, she could be found skimming the sea shore for sea glass and other treasures that she would later sell to visitors.
Bespoke Floral Design is the next chapter for the already accomplished florist and designer. The blonde and bougie beauty started at age 16 working at a floral shop in old town on Lazy Lane. It was there she cultivated and harnessed her never ending love for petals and blooms. She quickly discovered she had a knack and love for pruning and manipulating stems. McIntyre would eventually go on to help curate and plan hundreds of weddings for those in love as a premier wedding planner. Although she thrived as a planner, she could see there was niche missing in the floral market. She stayed close to her roots and found herself pawning to be back in the creative saddle. Within years, McIntyre would go on to open her own flower shop on Truman Avenue.There she operated as an in-house florist catering to an elite line up of clients. She created elaborate one-of-a kind floral bouquets for soon to be brides and delivered the freshest stems to deserving recipients. While operating and doing what she loved, McIntyre met her future husband. The two would eventually go on to get married and start a budding family of their own.
Today, the mother of three brings her love of all things luxurious and opulent to the very bouquets her fingers touch. Each arrangement is sculpted and trimmed to perfection courtesy of McIntyres eye for design and love for the craft. Her attention to detail is almost an obsession that guarantees the perfect arrangement.
