Natalie founded Native Poppy in 2015 as an opportunity to pursue creative work: “I knew I wanted to make something beautiful, work with my hands, and not sit under fluorescent lighting 40 hours a week,” she smiles. Natalie shares that this business lets her commit to creating joy in the world by making art with friends - in 2018 her business partner (and employee since day 1) Meg Blancato officially joined as a co-owner. The duo now run two flower design studios in San Diego, California and have grown from Natalie’s apartment floor into a thriving business.
Originally a San Francisco native, Natalie now calls Southern California home where she lives with her fiancé and two cats. Natalie has a deep passion for creating aesthetically exceptional environments, and when she’s not up to her elbows in flowers you can find her tending to her own home garden or cooking a delicious meal.
We’re so excited to have you join us, Natalie.
