Campanula for Mother's Day!

We've just ordered a ton of beautiful Campanula for Mother's Day bouquets. Campanula is a tall stemmed flower with bell shaped blooms. We'll have these flowers available in purple, pink and white. They are a great flower to incorporate into the larger bouquets, where you're trying to make a big impact.

Campanula also goes well with Delphinium, Bells of Ireland, Lilies, Callas, Snapdragons and Curly Willow. Call 404-525-2244 to order your spectacular, and unusual, Mother's Day bouquet with our fresh-from-the-farm Campanula!

Adapting to Growth

We love our neighborhood. There's so much growth in retail and residential, it's pretty fantastic to be a part of it! This past weekend we sponsored centerpieces for the neighborhood's Butterfly Ball just before the Inman Park Festival weekend.

Flower Bar has been growing so fast, we invited our other neighborhood florist, Adaptation, to join us in the sponsorship, and to collectively come up with an inexpensive centerpiece that was Eco-Friendly, in theme with the event. It turned out to be a really positive experience, and I had fun collaborating with Liz and Mike. Thanks guys!

Here's what we did.

Together we decided to use draught resistant plants like sedum, succulents, and a touch of healthy wheatgrass. Our containers were baskets made from reclaimed birch wood and recycled plastic box straps. Then we finished them with a touch of mood and sheet moss. We were all very pleased with the results and hope that our neighbors are enjoying the arrangements!

We're Growing Like a Weed!

I am so thrilled to announce we've grown...Again! Last week our new production space was completed. The new space is in the building just behind our shop at Irwin Street Market, and it's where we'll create the magic for our larger events, and holiday volume.

We also just purchased a fabulous van (in great condition!) from another florist whom I admire very much! Chuck Henry is a idol in my eyes, his talent is vast and his work has adorned the main entrance of the Southeastern Flower Show the last two years. After taking a director position at the SEFS, Chuck doesn't need the van as much, and I'm happy to adopt it....mojo and all!

Kid's Flower Basket Workshop

Today Flower Bar hosted a flower basket workshop with several children on Spring Break. The kids were part of a program a wonderful woman named Ms. Aida's directs. She owns and operates Grass Roots Institute, a non-profit for children in the area. Ms. Aida and her huge loyal following, volunteer their time to help teach these children life skills through arts and culture.

Grass Roots Institute is one of the many vendors that shares Market space with Flower Bar at the Irwin Street Market. If you'd like to sponsor a children's flower arranging workshop, or help support Ms. Aida in any other way, please feel free to come visit us at 660 Irwin Street, Atlanta GA 30312.
