Time for Holiday Bargain Shopping!

With Thanksgiving just days away, we are busy with holiday orders plus we are already preparing our new holiday collection of flowers, holiday plants, and holiday gifts for Hanukah and Christmas. Each year, this holiday shopping season kicks off with some crazy shopping holidays that are now a tradition for most of us with bargains galore and a mad dash to the store to get them. We are now preparing our Atlanta flower shop locations for these special events and updating our website with the new holiday collection not to mention some great deals. In-Store Holiday Events Black Friday falls on November 28th this year while Small Business Saturday is on November 29th. While we realize that holiday shoppers have a choice among many chain retailers to do their holiday shopping, we appreciate it when they come in and shop with small local businesses like ourselves.

These special shopping days are also a great opportunity to spend more time with you, our customer, getting to know you and sharing stories about the holidays. We can [...]

Fun and Festive Events in Atlanta on Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving is more than appreciation for what we have, a food feast, football and Black Friday strategies. There are other great fun-filled and festive things that you can do in Atlanta on Thanksgiving Day that brings loved ones together and creates great memories. Here is information on two of our favorite Thanksgiving Day Events. 2014 Atlanta Half Marathon and Thanksgiving Day 5K Organized by the Atlanta Track Club, the Atlanta Half Marathon and Thanksgiving Day 5K run/walk is an Atlanta tradition. Thousands of participants and volunteers take part in this event that also includes the Mashed Potato Mile Kids’ Fun Run and the Gravy Gallop. This encourages the whole family to be and stay active not to mention work up a great appetite for a scrumptious meal later on in the day. Each year, the Atlanta Track Club donates to a charity to help those in need in the local Atlanta area. This year, they are asking for clothing donations that they will then give to the Atlanta Mission, which serves men, women, and children. Even if you come as a volunteer or a spectator, this is a fun event to get involved with and a great way to spend [...]
