Using Roses

You know how they look as a bouquet and in vases throughout the home, but did you realize there are other ways to use roses? Here are some unique uses for roses:

  • Rose petals can be used in cocktails, to decorate cookies, and enhance foods like honey, jam, cupcakes, and custard. The thought is that the taste is similar to cranberries.

National Gardening Exercise Day is June 6th

C3Each year, National Gardening Exercise Day is celebrated on June 6th throughout the United States. It is a great way to get the word out about how gardening provides numerous benefits, including helping care for our planet, providing a relaxing and satisfying hobby, and getting exercise.

Yes, gardening does provide exercise and here’s how:

  • There is a lot of bending and up and down movement that looks – and feels – a lot like squats.
  • The movement involved in digging, planting, pulling weeds, and cutting also involves various muscles that are moving and stretching.
  • Depending on how large your garden is you may also have fruit trees or other opportunities that involve climbing ladders, so you have an outdoor “stairmaster” machine.c4

Even if you don’t have your own garden or space for creating one, you can participate in local Atlanta gardening clubs or community gardens to get the most out of this great form of exercise. It is a good way to exercise for people of all ages!

Helping Your Garden Grow

Our Atlanta flower shops offer many ways to help your garden grow. For example, we have many green plants and blooming plants that you can transplant into your garden to enjoy for years to come.

If you don’t have a lot of space, you might also enjoy having a dish garden or garden basket that can provide a hands-on gardening experience. Another option is an orchid plant or topiary. We offer both types of garden items, which offer minimal maintenance but provide a great place to get interested about gardening. april21c3

You may also want to visit any of our Atlanta florist locations and talk to our flower and plant experts on the best types of flowers and plants that thrive within the various Atlanta seasons. Our experts have years of experience in working with all types of flowers and plants so they can guide you through the process of starting up a garden.grand4

You may also feel inspired to start a garden after visiting any of Atlanta’s local gardens and parks or community gardens. The passion of those that are tending to those beauty spots may get you started on this creative and satisfying pastime. There’s no time like the present with the upcoming National Gardening Exercise Day to go ahead and get started!

Happy Memorial Day from Carithers Flowers

c1As the long Memorial Day weekend begins, it’s time to recognize all of those that we have lost in wars and battles around the world in which they fought incredibly hard to keep our freedom. We owe those fallen soldiers so much and this is the time to reflect on what being a soldier really means, including the sacrifices that they have made for us and for those that they left behind.c5

Although Memorial Day, which is this upcoming Monday, may have its solemn moments, there are also many reason to celebrate and join together as a community to focus on our patriotic spirit. Helping you focus on the Red, White, and Blue, we are here with decorative ideas for block parties, barbecues, special events, parades and Memorial Day ceremonies.

Here are some ideas to celebrate our patriotism this Memorial Day:

  • c2American Patriot Sympathy Vase contains a patriotic array of white lilies, red carnations, roses, and more within a sympathy vase.
  • Red Hot features a range of red flowers, including antique hydrangea, roses, spray roses, gerbera, hypericum and more.
  • Sizzle is another red flower arrangement in a cube vase that offers an imaginative design that is perfect as a centerpiece.
  • Mix it up by also adding white themed flower arrangements like White Lilies and Orchids that offers an elegant floral design.c4
  • Then go blue with the Blue Hydrangea Topiary, which is a unique flower arrangement that then can be replanted in the garden to provide years of enjoyment.

Along with these flower arrangement, bouquet, and centerpiece ideas for Memorial Day, you can visit any of our Atlanta flower shops and work with our design team to create custom Memorial Day flower arrangements and centerpieces. We can also custom create any type of Memorial Day wreath or Memorial Day standing wreath for your Memorial Day remembrance ceremony. c3

Decorate in Style with Holland Tulips

c7While tulips make great gifts for a special occasion, they are also a great flower to use to decorate any room in your home. Here are some ideas from the floral design team at Carithers Flowers:

Lemons and Tulips for the Kitchen or Patio

Use a wide-mouthed pitcher or ball jar for this tulip arrangement. Add sliced lemons and/or limes and water to container and then arrange yellow and white tulips inside. This is a great item to add to a kitchen table or counter as well as a patio table.

Vintage Style Tulip Arrangement for the Living or Family Room

Get a crate and old milk bottles. Place one or two tulips in your favorite colors to each bottle and add water. Tie the two tulips in each bottle together to help them stand up straight. Place on a side table or coffee table in a social space like the family or living room.c5

Tulip Topiaries

This unique design idea only requires a topiary ball from the craft shop, floral water picks, ribbon, and, of course, tulips. Place each tulip in a water pick and add around the topiary ball. This can be hung up on a porch or in a social space inside to add interest and color. It even looks great over a table like a floral chandelier.c1

Tulips and a Floor Vase

Use a large container to make a floor vase that includes tulips and willow branches. This can be placed next to a doorframe or fireplace to add a special floral decorator touch. Select colors that complement your existing color scheme for that room.

Tulips on Tables

Tulips are a versatile flower that looks good in every shape and size of container, making them a perfect addition to a dinner party table, event centerpieces, or individual flower arrangements for banquet tables or side tables. Tulips can be easily bunched together to stand up or they can be folded down to float in a large glass container along with candles.c5

Our Tulip Selection

All of our Atlanta flower shops use only the freshest tulips from our flower farm partners in Holland. Known the world around for the most beautiful tulips, Holland offers an array of colorful choices that you can use for gifts and to decorate your home throughout the spring and summer months. Visit our Atlanta flower shops today to start enjoying the beauty of tulips.

Prom Time in Atlanta

C1It’s that time of year again for prom, which means picking out the best attire, getting a limo, and, of course, picking prom flowers, including a corsage and boutonniere. Atlanta high schools, including Blessed Trinity, Greater Atlanta Christian, Lovett, Marist, Mount Pigsah, Pace Academy, Walker, Westminster, Whitefield, and Woodward Academy as well as Alpharetta High School, Lassiter High School, Marietta High School. Milton High School, Pope High School, Roswell High School, Walton High School, and Wheeler High School are all getting ready for prom.C2

To help you get the perfect prom flowers to match your style and budget, we have a wide array of corsages and boutonnieres to choose from.

Common Prom Flower Questions

Every year, the big dilemma is should the corsage match the dress? The answer is not necessarily because it should really serve as an accent or complimentary color to the dress color. Since more corsages tend to be worn on the wrist than pinned on anymore, this helps create a nice contrast.

You may also wonder what trends are prominent this year for prom flowers. The big trend continues to be ‘bling’ corsages that have rhinestones, pearls, and jewels as wristlet straps for the corsage. This can be kept as a keepsake long after the prom is over.C3

Then, the big question is who orders the corsage? While the man always did that in the past, now girls, boys, and mostly moms are involved in the ordering process so that they are ordered together for greater convenience and value.

To learn more, be sure to watch our prom video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuHhVGdQfXE.

Beautiful Prom Flowers and Custom Corsages

Besides our wide array of corsage and boutonniere choices, including favorites like roses, orchids, gerbera daisies, carnations, and more, you can also come into any of our Atlanta flower shops and work with our floral design team on a custom corsage that matches your style and color preference as well as your budget.C4

Atlanta Corsage Delivery

We realize that prom day is a busy day, picking up a last-minute dress that has been altered and the tux as well as getting to the salon for hair, nails, and makeup. To help you make one less stop that day, we offer corsage delivery throughout the Atlanta area. For $5.00, you can receive our “no worry” corsage delivery that is guaranteed to be at your door by 4pm.
