Our Story

Carla's love affair with floral design blossomed in 2010 in Montecito, California. From the beginning, she dedicated herself to the artistry of floral arrangements, captivating house accounts and curating dream weddings with her signature touch. As she honed her craft, Carla quickly emerged as one of the Central Coast's premier wedding florists.

Carla's unparalleled creativity and commitment to excellence garnered attention far beyond the Central Coast. Her work has been showcased in distinguished publications such as Vogue, Martha Stewart, Architectural Digest, and more.

As the world grappled with the challenges of the pandemic, Carla faced the need to adapt and innovate. In this pivotal moment, she turned to dried flowers—an unexpected yet transformative choice that marked the beginning of a new chapter for Idlewild Floral Co.

Carla's pivot to dried flowers was more than a survival strategy; it was a revelation. Embracing the world of preserved botanicals, Carla discovered a medium that allowed her to encapsulate the essence of blooms in time. The result? Bouquets that radiate the same beauty and vitality, sans the constraints of seasonality.

At Idlewild Floral, every arrangement is a testament to Carla's unwavering passion for floral artistry and her ability to embrace change with grace. Whether you're seeking a custom bouquet, wedding florals, or a timeless centerpiece, each creation is a reflection of Carla's dedication to capturing the enduring allure of nature.
