Meagan Riggs

Lead Designer & Grower

With a background in refinishing antique furniture, home staging, and interior design, we joke that Meagan is the "Jill of All Trades". A self-taught floral designer, she describes her personal taste as "bringing the bohemian soul to the classic Southern charm" she has grown to know and love. Originally from Scottsdale, Arizona, Meagan is a military spouse and mother to four. She has  a tremendous talent at bringing seasonally-inspired botanicals to any space, and likely coined the phrase "Oh, I can do that!" Meagan currently lives on a 9-acre farm in Carthage, NC.
