Colonial House of Flowers was founded on the principals of how flower shops traditionally have been run but transitioned to the front of the floral industry by changing the business model. From there, we've changed to focus on businesses to strategically communicate marketing, public relations and team building strategies naturally, using flowers and plants. 

We value intention, meaning, education, honesty and relationships first and support our values with innovation and technology. We strive to empower you to build a business that includes garden inspired communication, design, techniques and products.

The best brands in the world are ones that have the courage to change... no matter what. The Colonial House of Flower's entrepreneurial spirit and love of nature do exactly this... while enthusiastically family run for 55+ years!

It Doesn't Have To Be Perfect To Be Beautiful.

You can say that flowers found Christy. And, not other way around. After a successful career utilizing her degree from University of Georgia’s prestigious Grady School, the family flower shop came to her serendipitously. To keep it alive, she relied on the only resources she had mainly, a knowing found inside. Thankful for those days sent to the garden by her grandmother, she used a lot creativity and tenacity. Christy did it! 

Christy's gritty sense of story telling, honesty, authenticity, grace, and a bigger vision effortlessly translate into the magical world of flowers and plants, and small business. Her compositions drip with soulful details full of loose, wild texture and abandon with a respect for beauty in all stages of life are what make Christy one of the most sought after designers in Atlanta, the south, the country and the world. Her organically balanced, naturally humble, whimsically cheerful, peculiar approach to art and life help.  Believing good fun, strong women, genuine kindness, tight friendships and tough families are what make the world go around, she's original, loyal, tenacious and quiet at times.
