We are Colonial House of Flowers, created Christy Griner Hulsey.
Watch videos, shop home & garden products, explore design and other creative workshops and visit us in Atlanta, Georgia.
The shop doors opened in 1968 -- in little Georgia town called Statesboro just up the road to the coast not far from the countryside in southern eastern part of the United States by our relatives. In 2004, my husband Brian and I came together with a rallying cry to re-work an old business model in a snobby industry. With a young family, energy and courage we committed to the success of the business but wanted to make it real even at our own risk.
They said we shouldn't do it but we did.
Since that time, a lot's changed. But, what was true then is still true today: home is my favorite place to be. We've found that through life's challenges and joys home is always right in the middle of it, for us. It's messy and fun... and beautiful.
Home's what holds us, and lifts us. It’s where we relax, rejuvenate, and gather with friends and family. We've also learned home isn't a place. It's not a location. Home is a feeling that you know, love and always come back to... it's where you are.
In 2022, our goal is to focus on home and garden inspired decor and interiors like our shop did when it first started. Share naturally designed florals, orchids, succulents and plants especially within the Buckhead, Vinings, Alpharetta, Milton, Roswell area.
I love Atlanta, all of the southeast, the USA and the world. It's our home.
I wholeheartedly aim to make home a better place naturally with spirit, products, classes and tutorials in hopes of inspiring a life of joy and grace with more flowers and plants. Whether you find us online or delivering a custom composition in real life, inside the pages of our blog or on Youtube videos, it's our goal to make sure that the time you spend with me helps get you home.
Good fun, honest kindness, tight friendships, tough families and home make the world go around... and the truth is, It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful.
I hope you find inspiration from my Colonial House of Flowers story. Thank you for being a part of the family and story with me.
