Margaret Brown grew up in Augusta Georgia, home of the Masters golf tournament. Her father, Stephen Brown, MD, was a long-serving member of the Augusta National Golf Club and physician to Bobby Jones, one of the founders of the Club. Margaret learned flower design from many sources: in Augusta from Walter Murray, Augusta’s society florist; in San Francisco; in San Diego; and at Kew Gardens in England. She started Margaret Brown Flowers on her return to Augusta in 1978, and in 1982 became the official floral designer for the Augusta National, a post she held for 27 years. Her talent for design was widely recognized and she often travelled around the country for events in New Orleans, Charleston and New York, while maintaining a busy flower business in Augusta. Her many clients over the years included famous golfers, other sports figures, heads of state, and many others who loved her unique floral creations. She was sought after by industry and national organizations, and her clients included United States Golf Association, CBS, Tokyo Broadcasting, Cadillac, Citicorp, Rolex, IBM, AT&T, and Lexus. She lives with her husband, Tom, in a house across the street from where she was born and raised, and where her mother’s garden first inspired her life-long love of flowers. Because of television coverage for over a quarter of a century and the millions of TV fans world-wide who watch the Masters every year, Margaret’s floral designs have been viewed by more people than any florist in history.
