Carithers Flowers

Voted Best Florist In Atlanta 16 Consecutive Years!

Carithers Flowers is a second generation family owned and operated flower shop. Our firm was founded in 1974 by Larry and Jane Carithers. The popularity of Carithers Flowers quickly grew and it wasn’t long until Carithers became known as Atlanta’s home to unusual varieties of flowers and plants, trendy design styles, and fabulous wedding florals.   In 1984 Carithers was awarded the Cobb County Small Business of the Year Award. In 1987 Carithers was recognized as the fastest growing flower shop in the United States. We also won the Nations Top Family Florist Award in 1995.
