We agree with these findings as we have our plans underway for these special holiday events and encourage you to join us on any or all of these special shopping experiences.

November 29 is Black Friday

The infamous Black Friday is nearly here. Some retailers are trying to push it forward to just after the Thanksgiving meal, but for our employees and our customers we believe they should be with their families. We will be ready Friday morning with specials and promotions.Christmas Centerpiece

We’d love to see you at any of our Atlanta locations to get in the holiday spirit and find beautiful décor and gifts for Hanukkah and Christmas.

November 30th is Small Business Saturday

Following Black Friday is the nationally recognized and celebrated Small Business Saturday. While we all love the big box stores for certain items, nothing can replace the small business that offers unique products and services as well as personalized service.

We want to do everything we can to keep small business alive and well in this country, so this is a great opportunity to stop by our Atlanta flower shops and enjoy this small business shopping experience not to mention help our own local Atlanta economy.Christmas Vase

December 2nd is Cyber Monday

If you can’t make either of these special holiday events in person, you can still support small business by shopping online on Cyber Monday. Our online flower shop is open and ready to take your orders with a wide range of Christmas bouquets, Christmas décor, Christmas flower arrangements, gifts and gift baskets. This way, you can still take advantage of special promotions and shop on your schedule from your smartphone, tablet, laptop or personal computer.
