The doors opened in 1968 close to the south Georgia countryside and just up the road to the coast. Originally founded by Elmer & Carolyn Phillips, a flowers shop is not something I ever dreamed. It came to me unexpectedly. I am grateful. Colonial House of Flowers brings me joy and provides in ways I never could've expected.
Today, we create, share and ship from Atlanta, Georgia.
Plants, flowers and a story are my medium to create intimate, high-end, bespoke, artistic partnerships, workshops and inventory lists for our new CHOF at HOME line. I’d say my style is old-world, painterly, elegant yet rebellious and individualistic in a way that's always the same, yet always different.
I’m thankful for childhood days being sent to the garden by my grandmother plus, my mother's allowance of creative independence. Through both I learned a dirty and elegant language that's honest, authentic and graceful that effortlessly translates into the magical world of floristry.
May every floral connection we make drip with soulful details - loose, wild, texture-full abandon, and shared inspiration.
Come along with me. Good fun, strong women, genuine kindness, tight friendships and tough families make the world go around. And, what's kept our business alive for over 52 years. It isn't always easy but it's always rewarding. Today, our belief is the same as the day our shop started: beauty brings joy to life, work and home. Thanks for stopping by and being a part of my family, and the Colonial House story.
