Our Special Holiday Shopping Events

c1c5Although we close all of our Atlanta flower shop locations on Thanksgiving Day so that we and our staff can enjoy this special day with friends and family, we have been busy ahead of that preparing for Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, three of the biggest shopping days of the year because of the great deals to be had.

And, not only are we planning some special pricing promotions, but each of our stores will also have some great demonstrations, a showcase of our new holiday collection, and some great goodies.

Plus, you will be able to meet with our floral design team to custom create anything festive for your home or office.

Or, you can schedule time with our consultants for a winter wedding or Christmas party or event.

We haven’t forgotten all of our customers who enjoy shopping online on their time.

All three shopping days will involve online specials and content directed at anyone that wants to shop from home using any device they prefer.

To give you a little taste of what we will offer this holiday season, here are just a few of our newest floral designs, including wreaths, garlands, miniature trees, flower centerpieces, flower arrangements, poinsettias and more. Here are some highlights:c6

  • Glorious Holiday Wishes offers white roses, red dianthus, evergreens and gold ornaments. It’s great for a room accent or you can use it for a holiday table centerpiece for a special meal.c3
  • The Winter Wonderland Cube is a rustic display of roses, hypericum, holiday greenery, button poms, pinecones and a ti leaf ribbon in a glass cube.
  • Festive Winter Greetings features lilies, white birch, and hydrangea to highlight the colors of the season.
  • Christmas Red Poinsettias are the traditional symbol of the holiday and we offer both red and white in multiple sizes.
  • A First Snowfall reflects the winter wonderland with white alstromeria and lilies in a vase that has been tied with a holiday bow.
  • The Holiday Orchids & Roses is a festive display of red roses, green cymbidium orchids and holiday accents in a clear cube vase.

This is a just a small sample of our ever-growing holiday collections of flowers, plants, gifts, gift baskets, greeting cards and collectibles.c1

We look forward to seeing you in our stores this weekend!

Make a Difference Day in Atlanta

1   20150810_101809Make a Difference Day is Saturday, October 24th, and this is an opportunity to do something for someone else. It can be helping them out but it can also involve raising money or contributing to a charity.

At Carithers Flowers, we like to focus on community involvement, as we believe that a small business like ours is responsible to those in our community that support our business. We have an obligation to give back and we do so willingly.1  20150810_101444

To help our customers also get involved in the local Atlanta community organizations and charities that do so much for others, we offer the Helping Hands Program. This program benefits local schools, churches, and non-profit organizations that are located throughout Cobb County.

With each order that a customer makes, they can also donate to one of our participating organizations, which currently include Find A Cure, WellStar Foundation & Hospice, United Way, Hope Lodge-Emory, American Cancer Society, High Meadows School & Camp, Good Mews Animal Foundation and Hightower Middle School.

Our website features a convenient way to make this donation as you purchase your gifts online. On the online order form, you can select “Helping Hands” from a pull-down menu and then select the organization that you would like to have receive your donation.1  20150810_101551_001_edited-1

This is a great way to give back to the community as you make a purchase from us. It’s also a wonderful way for various local organizations to receive some very necessary funding. If you are an organization, you will first need to enroll and then you can distribute our information cards to parents, families, and others.1  20150810_101642_edited-1

Once they place orders from these cards, your organization will start receiving the donations in the form of a check that is sent to you at the start of every month. This gives you control over the funds to use how you like whether that be for charitable cause, equipment, or anything education-related.

It’s that easy! The upcoming Make a Difference is the perfect opportunity to make a contribution or get started with the Helping Hands Program!
