Floral Subscription Accounts

Flower Bar offers floral subscription accounts for homes and businesses in the metro Atlanta area. We come to you, and create custom arrangements suited to your decor.
Most of our clients request their flowers to be delivered every 7-10 days, and our current accounts range from $50 to $500 per delivery.
Who Should Get A Floral Subscription Account?
Our clients have included residential homes, high rise condominium communities, restaurants, large corporate offices and quaint boutiques.
Servicing regular accounts allows us to plan our fresh floral inventory ahead of time. We can shop directly from growers which gives you fresher and less expensive blooms.
**Ask about our current promotion where we're dropping our minimums to as low as $35 per (local) delivery.

Recession Proofing

Dear Flower Bar Friends,

We have a couple of things to announce. As the economy shifts, we’ve found ourselves needing a little reinvention. Our retail store has temporarily closed, and we’ve moved into a production workshop space to specifically focus on events and weekly subscription accounts for homes and businesses.

This is an especially exciting time for us! Eliminating the day-to-day delivery orders gives us more time to work on our events and accounts, focusing even more on every little detail.

We will be specializing in three areas:

**Weddings and events**- economy sensitive packages…eliminating our daily overhead will allow us to offer our services at a steep discount. What used to be a $1-$3k wedding is now offered starting at $500!!

**Home and Office Subscription Accounts**- have fresh flowers delivered (locally) to your home or office every week.

**Workshop parties**- Hosting a flower arranging party, is a fun way for you and your guests to get creative together. We are the only florist in Atlanta that offers this service.

Thank you for your continued support over the years!! And thanks for spreading the word about Flower Bar’s event, workshop, and subscription account services!

Valentine '09


...And just like clockwork, our phone has started ringing (a lot!) just a few days before Valentine's Day.

This year, Vday falls on a Saturday. Instead of scheduling a delivery, you may want to pick up your flowers and hand deliver them to your honey. If this is your plan, we strongly encourage you to call in your order early. If you wait until the day of, you may have to wait a bit for us to prepare an arrangement for you....or worse, there may not be a lot of flowers from which to choose! We've sold out of flowers every year.

Having said that, Flower Bar will have a ton of inventory for walk in sales on Friday 2/13 and Saturday 2/14....just try to get here early if you can!

Happy Valentine's Day!

It's A Good Sign If the Media Calls US!!

For the second year in a row, Flower Bar has been lucky enough for a media outlet to call US asking to promote our business for Valentine's Day! Last year we had the pleasure of appearing on FOX's Good Day Atlanta, to show off our Valentine's Day specials and host an "Anchor Challenge" where each of the news anchors attempted a floral design of their own. It was great fun and we got a lot of attention for it.

THIS YEAR we are partnering with Atlanta's popular radio station 92.9 Dave FM (a CBS Radio station). Listen all week from Saturday Feb 7th to Saturday Feb 14th for our $50 gift certificate giveaways! Flower Bar will also be sponsoring the music played over the weekend!
We appreciate 92.9 Dave FM's recognition and invitation to participate in their Valentine's Week promotions.
To order your Valentine's Day flowers call 404-641-0590.

Romantic Flowers for Valentine's Day!

Once again we're gearing up for a fabulous Valentine's Day. This year you can send extra goodies with your flower arrangements. Select from a variety of ice cream flavors, cupcakes, cookies, candles, and special beauty pampering gifts. Call now for more information, or stay tuned to our website for details.

VALENTINE'S DAY TIP: February 14th is the busiest day for any florist. Most florists wouldn't be able to guarantee a specific time of delivery without steep "rush" fees added to your order. You wouldn't want your honey to have to wait all day wondering if you sent her anything, would you? We suggest sending your flowers on the day BEFORE Valentine's Day. That way he or she has their gift to enjoy all day long. **You may even get brownie points for being the first bouquet delivered to your sweeties office....oohhhs and ahhhs from the co-workers are always fun! :)

Flower Bar will deliver Valentine's Day flowers throughout the metro Atlanta area. Call 404-641-0590 to place your special delivery.
