THE FLOWER SHOP @ Young Blood

Hello friends!  Blogging and getting you up to date on what's happening has been on my mind for weeks. I'm glad I'm finally getting around to doing it!

About a month ago I opened a flower shop inside of Young Blood boutique in the Poncey-Highlands neighborhood.  I've always been a huge fan of YB so the fact that I'm now slinging flowers out of there is such a dream.

I've always thought there was a need in Atlanta for a whimsical, modern flower shop.  I've mostly experienced flower shops that you walked in and got this tight traditional bouquet or a handful of wildflowers - not that there is anything wrong with that but for those of us wanting something different and new there wasn't really a place to go that wouldn't cost you. So, the flower shop was born.

We offer walk in's Wednesdays and Fridays as well as a few select bouquets available on Thursdays and Saturdays.  There is only one arrangement that changes bi monthly (every two weeks) and it comes in four different sizes; petite, small, medium, large.  Being able to walk into a florist and pick and choose is a great option but unfortunately in the flower industry that creates a lot of waste and there are many a florists that do that so why be the same when you can be different?!

In addition to walk ins we also started a bi monthly (every two weeks) flower subscription service. There are 1 Month, 2 Months, and 3 Months subscriptions available.  The subscriptions follow the same idea as walk ins in that its one arrangement that changes every two weeks.  The subscriptions only come in the medium size and are hand tied (again waste - who wants a bunch of vases piling up?).  We do offer delivery and vases for an additional charge if you would like to add those on.

We are excited for this fun new adventure!  To stay up to date on exact times and what availabilities the shop has be sure to follow along on Instagram and to sign up or read more about the flower subscription click here.

Today I had some free time so after the morning errands I came home, pulled my clippers out, and set out for the garden.  I recently bought some hellebores from Trader Joe's and after planting them they are blooming like crazy.  I can't get enough of them or the unusual, rich color. I clipped some fresh oregano, budding wisteria, and cypress maple leaves.  I found all these in our yard (and maybe our neighbors).  When there is no agenda and I can just create, especially clipping and using what my garden provides, those are the days when I'm most happy.
