Get in the Christmas Spirit

The best time of the year is Christmas.  There's love in the air and smiling faces everywhere.  As you shop at your favorite store, you hear the sounds of holiday tunes playing, you see the Christmas trees and the warm lighting. Stores all across the country are getting into the Christmas spirit by creating a wonderful and pleasant atmosphere that's perfect for shopping during this joyous time.  The great news is you don't have to go to a local store to experience the spirit of Christmas, you can fill your home with the sounds of holiday tunes, warm lighting, pleasant fragrances, and fresh Christmas bouquets.
If you are trying to get into the Christmas Spirit, here are few more favorite things to help you thoroughly enjoy your Christmas this year!

Create a countdown to Christmas.  One way you can get into the Christmas Spirit is to create a countdown before the big day arrives. You can be creative with your ideas, such as buying a big calendar and putting Christmas trees on each date of the month, crossing out each one until the day Christmas is here!  You can also hang up ornaments with numbers tagged on them and hang them on a string in the den of your home.  Simply take down an ornament each day until you get to 1 left, then hang it at the top of your Christmas tree on Christmas day!

Decorate your home with Christmas flowers.  To get into the Christmas Spirit in your home, you can always count on flowers to create the Christmas atmosphere you desire.  You can buy some the Best Christmas Flowers in Atlanta from Peachtree Petals and place them in various places in your home.  Watch your home come to life as you add a rich red poinsettia plant basket to your foyer.  Watch your dining room table capture the season as you add a Christmas centerpiece right in the middle of it.  

Watching Christmas movies.  There's also nothing like good old-fashioned Christmas movies to get into the Christmas Spirit.  Sit down with your family, enjoy some egg nog and cookies, and watch some of the best classic movies of all time during the holidays!  For the kids, you can always pop in How the Grinch Stole Christmas to show them what the season is all about.  For the grown ups in the house, nothing compares to watching the classic It's a Wonderful Life by the fire. 
Bake some Christmas cookies.  This is a great way to have some holiday fun with your family and kids too.  Once all of the family have arrived from out of town on Christmas Eve, you all can get some cookie dough and all kinds of sweets to put on top of them once the baking is done.  The kids will love putting Christmas-colored sprinkles, decorative toppings to cause them to look like Christmas trees, ornaments, a snowman, and more!   

Peachtree Petals is indeed an excellent Atlanta Florist that you can turn to for Christmas flowers, plants, centerpieces, and more.  We even have our very own Christmas Collection comprised of a variety of floral arrangements that you can easily select from for the holidays.  We take pride in providing high-quality and fresh flowers that our customers deserve.
If you need your flowers in a hurry this holiday season, it's not a problem for Peachtree Petals.  Our popular same-day delivery of our premium flowers is available daily up to 3pm.  We deliver throughout the Atlanta and Metro-Atlanta area, therefore you can call us if you need an Atlanta Flower Delivery or even a Norcross Flower Delivery.  Peachtree Petals does it all, even during the Christmas season!  For the best Christmas flowers, come and experience Peachtree Petals!

Centerpieces Great for Fall

When we talk about centerpieces, we’re usually talking about weddings. Centerpieces seem to get short changed a bit because of this. We like centerpieces for a lot of occasions especially intimate dinner parties and backyard barbecues. With the fall season officially here, floral centerpieces are a great way to incorporate fall hues and fragrances into your home. We’ve come up with some tips for selecting your perfect fall centerpiece that will work whether you’re choosing one for your wedding or for a girls night in dinner party.

Deep hues are a great way to incorporate the feeling of fall into a centerpiece. Rich, bold colors look great when juxtaposed against lighter cream and peach tones. The play on the dark colors creates an autumnal moodiness while allowing for any color scheme to be applied.

Rustic chic touches are perfect accents to an autumn centerpiece. We love to incorporate gourds, pumpkins, acorns, and wooden accents in a fall centerpiece. There are few things more rustic chic than bright zinnias arranged in a white pumpkin with a shiplap wooden board underneath. Rustic chic accents give endless possibility to fall centerpieces!

Wine colored flowers are some of our favorites for fall. Shades of burgundy, ruby, purple are a great base for centerpieces. Not only do these colors embody fall, they can be added to darker colors for that moody feeling, or lighter colors to lighten up the mood. The versatility of these shades make them perfect for weddings and home decor.

Gold gilded accents round out our tips for choosing a fall centerpiece. We chose to finish with gold gilded accents because they work so well with all of our other tips for fall centerpieces. Gold gilded apples, pumpkins, acorns, even antlers, alongside wine and dark colored flowers create a gorgeous fall themed centerpiece. Gold gilded tipped pine cones arranged in a bed of dark green foliage is a unique and unexpected arrangement. Your pumpkins and gourds will last even longer when dipped in gold, allowing you more time to enjoy your centerpiece, or buying you time if you need to make it a few days in advance of your event.

Being an FTD Top 100 partner, Buckhead florist, Peachtree Petals, has the access to unique flora and fauna selections you won’t find just anywhere. Our experience in creating unique arrangements has caused our recognition as Atlanta’s number one florist by several local organizations including 11Alive News.

Whether you’re near or far to our floral boutique, we have flat-rate Atlanta flower delivery and nationwide flower delivery.

Best Places to Have Outdoor Wedding in Atlanta

With historic charm and the natural beauty of decades old Magnolia, Oak, and Peach trees, and temperate weather, Atlanta is an unrivaled city for a wedding. There’s no place like it, and while that’s wonderful news for fellow Atlantians, it can be difficult when it comes to selecting a wedding venue. Many brides and grooms are looking to plan their special day in a lovely outdoor setting, hoping to incorporate the natural beauty the city has to bring. With so many choices for Atlanta weddings, we’ve compiled a brief list of some of our favorite places to have an outdoor wedding, with the help of The Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Smith Family Farm: The gardens at The Smith Family Farm are a great choice for the couple that desires some rustic, country chic elements on their wedding day. The farmhouse was built in the 1860s and currently is part of the Atlanta Historical Center, giving tours and educating groups about farm life in the Civil War era. The backdrop for the wedding are original Civil War era farm buildings, immaculately kept penned gardens. You can even arrange for costumed interpreters to hold craft demonstrations and have the Smith Family Farm sheep welcome your guests to further enhance the rustic tone of the evening.

Margaret Mitchell House: Most Atlanta natives know about the Margaret Mitchell House. Many can tell you where it is, but few have ever been inside it. This historic landmark makes for such a versatile wedding space. Though best suited for a smaller wedding, the Margaret Mitchell House works well for many wedding themes and concepts. The ceremony and reception can take place within the house or in the elegant backyard, making it a venue well suited for the possibility of inclement weather on your wedding day. Plus, the historic charm of the house makes an excellent backdrop for pictures taken in the front yard of the home.

Rhodes Hall: Once the residence of Amos Rhodes, founder of Rhodes Furniture, Rhodes Hall is a classic Atlanta icon. Located on the prominent Peachtree Street, this castle-like venue is the perfect location for a bride who wants to feel like a princess on her wedding day. Rhodes Hall has a variety of spaces to be rented for your wedding depending on your needs and your wedding size. We especially appreciate the gorgeous rolling lawns on the hall grounds, which serve as an excellent space for an outdoor ceremony. Rose Garden at Atlanta Botanical Gardens: The Atlanta Botanical Gardens are one of Atlanta’s most popular attractions. The Rose Garden within the city’s Botanical Gardens make for such a unique wedding venue. The fragrant perfume of the garden’s many variety of roses linger in the air as guests watch you exchange heartfelt vows. This venue incorporates even more of Atlanta’s charm as the Midtown skyline hangs in the backdrop.

There is no shortage for gorgeous, unique outdoor Atlanta wedding venues. With so many places to choose from for venue, we want to make your selection for Atlanta wedding flowers easy. Peachtree Petals has been named best Atlanta wedding florist by WeddingWire.com and TheKnot.com several years in a row. Quality and service are synonymous with wedding flowers from Peachtree Petals.

Joanna Gaines Farm Table to Bouquet

From her adoration of her husband’s onscreen antics, to her ability to spot shiplap under almost any wall, to her incorporation of personalized touches in her homes, it’s hard not to fall in love with HGTV’s Joanna Gaines. Recently, Joanna Gaines shared a handy tip to spruce up any flower arrangement. Our flower experts here at Atlanta florist, Peachtree Petals, are always looking for exciting new takes on traditional arrangements, and this tip certainly fits the bill.

From her Magnolia farm table to bouquet, Joanna explains her unique trick to flower arranging is using leftover basil in her flower arrangements. She uses the remnants to add pops of color and fragrance to flower arrangements she’s placed around her home. Even if you’re not cooking with basil regularly enough to have leftovers to add to your arrangements, a basil plant needs careful trimming once it begins to flower, so if you’re not ready to use it in a fresh salad or pasta sauce, you can use the leaves with your flowers. Conversely, if you’re constantly using your basil leaves for yummy recipes, this trick works well with other herbs like rosemary, mint, and thyme.

This trick would perfectly compliment a Peachtree Petals flower arrangement, especially as a means to spruce up a days old bouquet adding additional verdant pops of color and enhancing the fragrant quality of your gorgeous floral arrangement. The Buckhead and Luxury collections are perfect arrangements with which to try this trick, in addition to our copious selection of centerpieces.

The Atlanta flower shop is a full-service florist with expertise ranging from unique custom floral arrangements, wedding flowers, luxury gift baskets, and indoor plants. Peachtree Petals has arrangements of all sizes and price points for any occasion with flat-rate Atlanta flower delivery and fast, inexpensive nationwide shipping. It’s easy to see why Peachtree was recently named Atlanta’s Number One florist by 11Alive news and Wedding Wire and The Knot’s top Atlanta Florist for several years in a row.

Visit www.peachtreepetals.com today to browse our extensive online collection of arrangements from our exclusive Buckhead and Luxury collections, or to contact a florist for a custom made arrangement. Whether or not you try Joanna’s tip with one of our arrangements, we’re confident you’re going to love your order, which is why we stand by our Peachtree Guarantee for freshness and quality. Contact us today to take advantage of our same day shipping and begin enjoying your arrangement immediately.

Wedding Day Advice from Officiants

Immediately following their engagement, brides are filled with prenuptial euphoria. This giddiness often lasts into the beginning stages of wedding planning until they realize just how many minute details there are to account for on their wedding day. These details can become so overwhelming, completely overtaking the minds of once recently excited couples. The sheet amount of planning can cause unnecessary anxiety and tension between couples and their friends and family members.

Many married couples would tell newly engaged couples not to sweat these details, and instead to enjoy the planning as much as they enjoy their special day. With all there is to plan and consider, this advice can often be forgotten. Chicago Tribune writer, Donna Vickroy, consulted wedding officiant, Jeannie Walton, a wedding professional with years of experience in the wedding industry first on the hospitality side, and more recently as an officiant, to find what couples can do to help them maintain their perspective during the wedding planning process. Jeannie gave some tangible suggestions or couples that can serve our Atlanta brides.
  • Allow for More Than Enough Time For Every Aspect of the Day: Some things will take longer than anticipated and some things will move along more quickly than planned. Either way, it is best to allow for plenty of time for each aspect of the day so it can be fully enjoyed.
  • Don’t Pick a DJ Based on Showmanship: As Walton said, “This is not a race car event; you don’t need exaggerated voices.”
  • Make Sure There’s A Mic: Having a microphone stand for your officiant is one detail you won’t want to overlook. This is especially important for larger weddings. It can be frustrating for guests when they can’t hear the special words of the officiant, or the intimate moment of the vow exchange. Prevent this frustration and make sure everyone is included by providing a mic for your officiant.
  • Discuss Family Problems Ahead of Time: No family is perfect or free from some degree of issue. Whether these problems be generations deep, or recently developed schisms, it’s important to discuss and anticipate ahead of time what problems family members may have with one another and try to prevent them. It’s impossible to ensure everything will go smoothly in this area, but anticipating it ahead of time will help couples prepare.
  • Be Upfront With Vendors: It’s important to communicate with vendors the vision, flow, and budget for the day. While vendors usually have a great deal of expertise in the wedding field, they aren’t mind readers and need cooperation and communication from the couple to ensure the day goes as expected.
Peachtree Petals is the premier Atlanta wedding florist. The full-service florist has over six years of wedding flower experience from bouquets to centerpieces, and has worked with Atlanta brides with budgets and visions of all shapes and sizes. Knowing how important communicating with vendors is for a harmonious and enjoyable wedding day, Peachtree Petals offers a wedding consultation with their experienced wedding coordinator to discuss all of the important details of the wedding day, provide a price quote, and coordinate the next steps in the process.

Weddings Pricier Than Down Payments

September marks the official wrap of “wedding season.” As we move out of the warm weather season, wedding vendors find themselves with less bookings, thus making weddings held between the months of September and April significantly less expensive than those held during the peak wedding season. In fact, CNBC has recently reported the staggering cost of having a wedding are now pricier than a down payment on most homes. The average cost of a wedding in 2014 was $31,213, up from about $27,000 in 2010. The inflation in wedding costs rose 16% in just 10 years.

Not surprisingly, the location of the wedding has quite the bearing on the cost of the wedding. In areas with higher costs of living, the average wedding cost is typically higher as well. In the San Francisco Bay area, the average cost of a wedding now tops out at $39,690, and even higher in Chicago with a whopping average of $50,934. For perspective, CNBC compared these numbers against the average cost of a home in 2015, $190,000. For a home in this price point, one could put a 10% down payment for the same cost of a wedding. For those marrying in peak wedding season, the costs of the wedding can be even higher.

As many engaged couples sit down to plan their futures, it can be difficult to compromise their dream wedding and their dream home. In order to make each a reality, couples look for the best deal in wedding vendors. Peachtree Petals, Atlanta’s premier wedding florist, is a great option for Atlanta area brides who don’t want to compromise quality in favor of getting a good deal.

Bringing the Bridal Shop to Your Home

When Ohio native, Christie Martin, found her dream wedding gown while on a shopping trip in New York, she had a wonderful idea: what about the other women who might not be able to get out and try different brands and styles? What could make the process of finding that dream dress a little easier for brides to be? Armed with this inspiration, Martin, along with friend Annie Tsiliandis, started Ivec & Rossa, an in-home bridal boutique concept last fall. Much like other in-home shopping concepts that are gaining popularity like Stitch Fix or Gwinnie Bee, Stella and Dot, and so much more, Ivec & Rossa provides brides to be with the opportunity to try on wedding dresses in styles and by designers they might not otherwise find access to right from the comfort of their own home.

This bridal shopping party costs $150 for a sample dress, fitting key, a measuring kit with instructions, bouquet of flowers, and five days to try the dress. The $150 fee can then be applied to the cost of the dress when the bride has found the one. According to Martin, so far, all brides have decided on the first dress they try, though there are options for trying additional dresses. Martin and Tsiliandis strive to make Ivec & Rossa more than simply a courier service for dress sample sizes. In contrast, their business model puts the home experience at the forefront of the design.

"It's not just, 'Here's a dress, see you later,'" Martin told Columbus Business First.

Friends are encouraged to chip in and attend the party, making it about more than just trying on another garment, but rather a momentous milestone meant to be shared with family and friends.

Martin and Tsiliandis are testing new markets locally with new designers and styles hoping to find what will best meet their customers' needs and meet the many demands of the bridal gown industry with their unique business.

Atlanta wedding florist, Peachtree Petals, strives to create the same one-of-a-kind feeling for couples planning their special day. Peachtree Petals knows how important wedding flowers are and has employed an in-house wedding florist to ensure the highest quality of flowers and arrangements are used for Atlanta brides.

Women's Friendship Day is Saturday 9/17

For centuries, women have relied on one another for assistance, guidance, compassion, and understanding. When author Jeffrey Zaslow studied 11 women who maintained their friendship over decades of life changes in his book The Women from Ames, he found that women with strong female friendships reap the benefits of those friendships in every aspect of their lives from familial and romantic relationships to their careers. Zaslow also found many health benefits for women with strong friendships. Knowing these benefits of strong female friendships, or sisterhood as they prefer to call it, the women of Kappa Delta founded a day for women to celebrate their friendships, and since 1999, the third Saturday in September has been recognized as National Women’s Friendship day.

What makes this day so perfect is its low-key, non-commercialized nature. There’s no pressure to do anything in particular and no need for an overwhelming of pomp and circumstance. Instead, this day gives you the freedom to celebrate your female friendships in a way that is special to them, whether this is writing a sweet note, spending a spa day, making a call to let them know you’re thinking of them, or simply giving them some space to spend the day in meditative calm. Alpharetta’s florist, Peachtree Petals, has a wonderful array of gifts perfect to send to your favorite friends with easy Alpharetta flower delivery, or even nationwide. Here are just some of our perfect options for this special day.

Wildflower Mix Bouquet: The Wildflower Mix Bouquet comes from our Peachtree Petals Originals collection, a unique collection exemplifying the creativity of our talented Alpharetta florists. This bouquet is perfect to send to a friend with its sunflower feature, and is perfect for the fall season with its accompanying wildflowers in vibrant, rich hues. Your friend can usher in the fall season while knowing how much they are cared for.

A Splendid Day Bouquet: Let your best friend know you hope she has a splendid day on National Women’s Day with the Splendid Day bouquet. This gorgeous arrangement features your choice of 13, 18, or 23 stems of lavender roses and lavender monte casino asters with purple matsumoto asters set against a variety of rich and light green accents all skillfully arranged in a clear, bubble bowl glass vase.

Schefflera Arboricola Container: More commonly known by the name Dwarf Umbrella Tree, this plant is the perfect way to bring nature indoors and enjoy the feeling of fresh plants with a longer shelf life than fresh cut flowers. Our Schefflera Arboricola arrives to your friend in a round graphite container that brings a look of modern sophistication to a home and works well with any decor. This verdant plant qualifies for our special same-day Atlanta flower delivery.

Super Snacker: Sometimes you just need to talk to a good friend and enjoy some junk food. Some of our best nights with our friends are spent doing nothing at all but enjoying one another and a snack. Our super snacker gift basket is a great gift to give, and the sheer size of it makes it perfect for sharing. We recommend sending this wicker hamper filled with candy bars, cookies, salty snacks, and more, and then inviting yourself over to relax and indulge in the company of your friend and share a snack.

Tips to Save Money on Wedding Blooms

When it is time to begin planning for your big day, the last thing you want to do is spend more than you have to, especially when it comes to having the Best Wedding Flowers. Here are some great tips to having beautiful wedding blooms within the budget that you have.

Farmers Market Stems: One place you can depend on is to cut costs on your wedding blooms is farmers market stems. The farmers market has a many flowers that you can get at in-season pricing. Make sure to have an idea of your color scheme, budget, and the kind of flowers you would like. You can then take your blooms home and arrange them how you desire.

Choose In-Season Flowers: You also can choose in-season flowers to stay below your budget. Many flowers have a primary season of availability, such as tulips in springtime. However, those same tulips will be hard to get at a good price during August.

DIY Centerpieces: DIY means do-it-yourself, and you most certainly can create your own centerpieces. For example, you can create your own custom-designed paint tea-light holders or small glasses with a swipe of gold. Then, fill each with one or two statement blooms such as roses, peonies or tulips.

Don't Overlook Inexpensive Blooms: A superior Atlanta Florist like Peachtree Petals can design marvelous arrangements out of inexpensive flowers. Chrysanthemums and carnations are inexpensive, and when arranged in abundance, they create striking bouquets.

Less Is More: Sometimes, less is more and this can be very true. As an example, per Better Homes & Gardens, begin by selecting a limited color palette of one to three colors so your florist can order in bulk, which also cuts costs. Have an abundance of small displays, as well as having fewer but more extraordinary arrangements. Don't be afraid to use a lot of greenery, such as ivy and texture-rich ferns, and fewer expensive flowers.

Transfer Ceremony Flowers to the Reception: A smart idea to keep your budget low with flowers is to use the same ones from your wedding ceremony for your reception. This means you only are paying once for reception floral decor.

Learn How to Design: To save money, you and your wedding party can learn how to create your own floral arrangements. It may take time, but with your family and friends, you can make it fun! Make time for flower shopping, designing and setting everything in place.

Add Fruit: You may not have seen it often, but you also try pairing fruit up with your flowers. For example, pair some colorful fruit like lemons, limes, peaches, and berries with fresh flowers for a unique reception centerpiece design.

If you don't know where to begin to get the right blooms to match your wedding budget, you can always turn to Peachtree Petals! We absolutely love our brides and we will gladly provide you with great suggestions on in-season blooms relative to the time of your beautiful wedding.

Great Hospital Flower Delivery Tips!

Having loved ones recovering in the hospital isn't easy, but you can always be right there by their side to comfort and support them. You can also send them the Best Hospital Flowers to absolutely brighten their day. Before you do, here are just a few hospital flower delivery tips to consider to make sure your recipient not only receives their flowers, but they are pleased with them too!

Flower Limitations - Be mindful of any flower limitations that particular hospital or nursing facility has. One thing that can be disappointing when you are sending hospital flowers to someone dear to you is when they aren't allowed to have them in their room. For example, some hospital may not allow flowers with strong fragrances, such as lilies, depending upon your recipient's condition. Making a quick call and speak with a nurse to check will go a long way, especially if your flowers are a surprise. You may decide to send a plant instead!

Confirm their current room number - When you're send flowers to a hospital, it's confirm your loved one's current room number. Due to surgery or a specific treatment, they could potentially be in one room in the morning, but be moved to an entire different floor in the afternoon. Find out if they will be in their current room they day your are sending your bouquet. Then, you're able to give the florist the correct location so your recipient can receive their flowers in the time frame you desire.

Flower room holding areas - Many hospitals have holding rooms for flowers that are being delivered to patients. Since patients receive flowers all at the facility at all times, the hospital will put all the bouquets in one room at the time of delivery, then delivery all flowers at one time. If you have a particular time in mind you desire your recipient to receive their bouquet, it would be good to know whether the hospital stores them in a holding area first. Also, knowing if they do informs you where they can check for the floral arrangement in case it gets lost.

Know the flowers they feel like having there - Most recipients don't mind, yet it's great to know they feel like having those particular flowers there at the hospital. Sometimes, the flowers they like outside of the hospital, may not necessarily be the flowers they want, or will bring them joy, while there. For example, their favorite flowers may be roses; however, they may feel like having sunflowers which are bright and cheerful to bring life to their room. Ask them, or if your flowers are a surprise, be creative and have a nurse casually ask also.
