Happy Memorial Day from Carithers Flowers

As 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. 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: American 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. [...]

Decorate in Style with Holland Tulips

While 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. 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 [...]

Prom Time in Atlanta

It’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. 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 [...]
