My name is Brandi Charlot. I am a licensed florist and floral designer based in New Orleans, LA. I am passionate about flowers and offer a truly exceptional service tailor-made to suit your budget and your individual needs with high quality flowers, delivered and managed with exceptional service.
I specialize in fresh floral for all special events that includes weddings, corporate events, baby showers, private events, etc. Using freshest materials of the highest quality to ensure that the flowers you receive will give you many days of enjoyment well beyond your special day. With my passion and enthusiasm, I always strive to create the most exquisite, elegant and bespoke floral designs with a ‘wow’ factor that is totally fitting to your personalities.
With over 3 years of being in this business, I was trained as a protégé by the most amazing talented world renowned Florist, Preston Bailey in New York City. Preston Bailey has been globally-celebrated for his unique ability to transform ordinary spaces into lush, theatrical environments. Preston has been sought out to create one-of-a-kind, transformative designs that serve as backdrops for some of the most memorable moments of his clients’ lives. His dedication to supporting and remaining accessible to the industry initiated the idea for his PB Protégé program, a series of specialized masterclasses that offer mentorship and education to industry professionals at all levels.
The love for flowers have been a part of me since growing up in a home with my grandma, Gloriadean who nurtured her garden daily. I started out in event planner but recognized floral was my peace. It kept me focused on one thing and ways to utilize my artistic skills to create magic. I love to create masterpieces. It’s my happy place.
I appreciate the different steps taken to create something amazing using a personal and tailor-made approach that ensures each bride gets exactly what they want and more that bring smiles on not just the Bride alone but family faces. I work with all kinds of budgets, whether your celebration is small and intimate, or large and extravagant your day will be perfect in every way.
Whatever the occasion I strive to create stunning, bespoke floral designs using a variety of materials and accessories that are totally fitting to your requirements and your day. Throughout my career I have managed and worked at the highest level with many of New Orleans’s leading hotels, caterers and event planners. I’ve also had floral art displayed in the NOMA Museum here in New Orleans. I am cultured driven and love my city, NOLA.
I have managed an extensive and high profile contract portfolio, and I have nurtured and loved a talented team of florists. Flowers radiate positive energy.
With a strong sense of color and design, and a genuine passion for flower it has proved to be a winning combination, establishing Blucid Floral. I’ve had the opportunity to create a masterpiece for ESSENCE Music Festival at the Convention Center for the Crème of Nature booth. It melts my heart to see how much I’ve blossomed as a person through the love I have for my flowers.
Prior to my amazing career and life changes I was a teenage mother of 2 handsome boys that assist Blucid Floral and they have been my strength and motivation since they came into my life. 10 years later God bless me with a now 6-year-old princess name, Milan who prep all the supplies so I could get busy. So, those flowers installed in our large arrangements, nine out ten my kids have assisted in processing before design.
I love jazz music and I have ” footwork”, when I’m free from flowers, you can catch me dancing in the streets with, the Jazz horns blowing in the air! I am Nola. I love NOLA!
I strongly believe flowers have a unique way of evoking feelings and emotions; they are quite simply beautiful. They add drama, excitement and much more.
Flowers have created opportunity for me and my family beyond many understanding and one thing I know for sure it’s all God!
