Stop and "Send" the Roses

You would think that after coordinating and creating over 700 orders for Valentine's Day, that we would be tired of roses....but NOPE, we still love them!  Roses are a classic flower to send for many occasions, however we like to take a bit of a twist on the actual presentation of these beauties.
We suggest sending this modern looking creation. 18 classic "Freedom" roses, with bupleurum greenery in a glass bubble bowl.  Once these blooms open up, they will present a lush expression of beauty.  Order this bouquet for only $85 plus delivery.  Click here to order now.

Flower Bar is a full service florist, offering custom designs for daily delivery, special events, weddings, movie/television production and weekly accounts in the Atlanta area.

Kayla's Lavendar Bridal Bouquet

One of my favorite things to do is to put together a last minute bridal bouquet.  We had a two day notice on this one. It was an intimate affair at a family restaurant, so they just needed a Bridal Bouquet and the Groom's Boutonniere.

Of the many purple/lavender weddings we've been doing recently, this romantic hand tied bouquet is one of my new favorites. I find it simple and refreshing, just like Spring.

Kayla's lavender bouquet is made of cool water roses and wax flower, wrapped in salal leaves and lime satin ribbon.  $85

Sunflower Bridal Bouquet

Here is Karen's bridal bouquet for an outdoor wedding this past weekend.  Sometimes as a florist, no make that A LOT of times as a florist, I am more concerned with getting everything done just right, that I don't stop to take photos of anything I've created.  Then I hope I can remember to catch up to the photographer or bride at a later date to get the actual professional photos of our flowers.  In this case, this is the ONLY photo I took :-)

Guess I'll put this wedding party on the list for photo follow up!  Their flowers also included.....

Bridesmaid bouquets with sunflowers and red roses, hypericum, solidago, brunio berry, freesia and more, as well as 22 mason jars with lily grass, sunflowers and hypericum berry- bouts corsages and buffet arrangements.

I did want to share this venue with you, as it looks soooooo COOL. The 5 Star Lodge, located in Ellijay. These are photos from the website....our bride's family picked up all their flowers to bring the Ellijay about 1 1/2 hours away. We are anxiously awaiting to see how everything looked decorated.  Happy Wedding!

Cypress Pint & Plate Occasions and General Decor

We love these little vases!  Last week we received a last minute request to make 10 "very small" arrangements for a rehearsal brunch at Cypress Street Pint And Plate. Their table linens were white so they wanted something bright and cheery.


In these 3" rectangular vases, we used purple monte casino, yellow viking poms, orange ranunculus, hot pink spray roses and our favorite greenery, bupleurum.

Got a last minute event? Call us, we can help! 404-641-0590

Budget friendly table centerpieces- Floataway Cafe

This week we did flowers for a wonderful woman's 90th birthday dinner party.  Her friends came in to ask about flowers for their tables at the Floataway Cafe.  I've been to this restaurant many times- its airy, cozy and relaxing atmosphere is a great spot to host an intimate affair.

We didn't have a large budget for the tables, but they wanted something "sweet and pretty".  I suggested doing a collection of bud vases on the main table and the side tables, and they loved the idea!  This fit their lower end budget, but even more exciting-- it gave each guest an opportunity to bring a bud vase home with them after dinner.

The birthday girl wanted mostly soft pinks and peaches.  Here's what we did......


We used veronica, roses, stock flower, lisianthus, variegated pittosporum, hypericum berries and spray roses.

My photos came from my phone again, so they are not fantastic photos.  My point of posting was to emphasize that you don't need a big budget to make an impact!  Try using collections of different sized vases or containers and do a little something different in each one.  This makes for interesting aesthetics, and gives your guest a nice parting gift after the party!

Flower Bar specializes in floral decor for events.  Whether you have an intimate affair or a large event, we have the staff and resources to help you make your vision come true.

Beth and Michael Wedding

Once again we had the pleasure of doing wedding flowers for a Bride and Groom at Callanwolde Fine Arts Center in June. Callanwolde is one of the most popular and photographed locations in Atlanta, and is a unique wedding venue. Located in Atlanta’s Druid Hills neighborhood, the magnificent 27,000 square ft. Gothic-Tudor style mansion is situated on a 12.5-acre estate of beautifully landscaped gardens and wooded grounds and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Michael and Beth had an intimate affair at the Sam Goldman Retreat Building located on the Callanwolde property.

 Their wonderful photographer, Donna Permell of Prime Phocus was kind enough to send some early photos from the event. Click on her website to learn more about her photography!

Our Bride Beth wanted simply stated elegance, with beautiful burnt orange mini calla lilies for her bridal bouquet and orange roses with pale blue hydrangea for the table centerpieces.

Here's a sneak peek at her flowers.....

Mango Calla Lily Bridal Bouquet
We love the lighting and color in these photos!

There were just seven tables to decorate, each with their own version of pale blue hydrangea and a collection of orange roses including "Santana," "Orange Unique" and "Versillia." These came in a clear glass cube vase with a sprig of looped lily grass.


Beth and Michael contacted us just one month before their wedding....which we don't mind at all!  We tend to get quite a few last minute weddings requests from those who are finishing final details, as well as those who plan far in advance.  Either way, we are thrilled to be a part of each special occasion, and enjoy working with Brides to make their wedding flower dreams come true...whether that's for a large event or an intimate affair.

Flower Bar would love to hear from you about your special event or wedding.  Just email us at, visit our Flower Bar Website or click on our Facebook page.
