Wild Poppy Florist
About Paula and Charla
Paula Horn and Charla Hanson are the owners of Wild Poppy Florist in Sunriver, Oregon. They are designers, business partners and friends. They love the way beautifully arranged flowers make people smile. They are creative, combining unique materials, textures, layers and colors for memorable floral designs.
Beauty is the cornerstone of Wild Poppy Florist — and of Paula’s and Charla’s careers. Charla began her floral career at the age of 16 with her mother in San Luis Obispo where they used the deep blue ocean, rolling hills, and vineyards as backdrops for their design. She’s been active in the floral design business ever since, both in Central Oregon and in Teton Valley, Idaho. Charla’s floral designs were featured in the 2003 Martha Stewart Weddings magazine and she designed the floral arrangements for President George W. Bush during his stay in Crosswater in 2003.
Paula planned family and friends’ weddings, birthdays, baby showers, and other special events for more than 20 years and is now bringing that experience to clients of Wild Poppy Florist. She has worked at Sunriver Resort’s banquet department, in the fashion and retail industry, and as a personal Pilates and fitness trainer.
Both Paula and Charla are long-time residents of Central Oregon. The beauty of the region and the richness of the seasons are inspirations for their floral designs. They believe flowers should reflect their clients’ personality, spirit, and individuality. They work closely with their clients to create the true essence of their special day and special wishes. They translate feelings — love, admiration, happiness, comfort and joy — into stunning floral designs.
Each wedding, birthday or corporate event creates a new and lasting memory for Paula and Charla. Their clients become their friends. Each event becomes a special moment. They would be privileged to work with you to make your special day beautiful and unforgettable.
