Our Story

Our owner and lead designer is Dottie Edwards. Dottie is married to Joel, mother to Stephen, Laura, David, mother-in-love to McKenzie and grandmother to Griffin. Dottie has been playing in flowers since she was 9 years old. “My earliest memories of time well spent were in a garden working in the shadow of my mom. She taught me so much and encouraged years of art lessons and creative expression. Art, flowers, and celebrations have been an inspiration of love and hope throughout my life. Through them I have also come to know and love the Master Designer whose attributes can be seen in a flower garden.” As Dottie’s nest was emptying, she began to formalize her business goals and dreams and Inspired Design became a reality.

We use locally grown flowers as much as possible. Dottie’s garden is a big resource for cuttings from shrubs, grasses, flowers, and unusual textures and pods. Whatever is needed to bring about the desired style whether garden, modern, boho, or farm, we have excellent resources and years of experience. Every event is unique and personal to us.

Inspired Design is a floral and event boutique where work flows out of hearts seeking to love people through a business that designs and delivers florals and décor for celebrations of life. We especially love weddings and parties! We want to listen well to each client, catch their vision which inspires every detail. We work hard to create florals and décor to reflect our clients story. We deliver more than flowers…we deliver a memorable experience.

Inspired Design of NC is located in Asheville NC, serving Western North Carolina and beyond. We love serving people who are coming to our area for the first time or who have lived here their whole lives. We have been in many venues and enjoy collaborating with other talented vendors in the area.
