Inside Look at atlanta's buyers market

 

To market, to market... Wait what is Market? 

some might presume that "market" is a shopaholics paradise! well, take it from this self-proclaimed treasure hunter extraordinaire ~ shopaholics & the shopping shy alike will find market to be a bit overwhelming! this never-ending maze that spans three buildings, over 60 floors & seven million (thats right we said million!) square feet, with showroom after showroom after showroom~ is bigger than big! at the end of the first 12 hour shopping day, your head will be spinning, your dogs barkin', your eyes blurry & red, your tummy grumbling because there was no time to eat and your thoughts haunted by the countless finds that you may have missed ~ realizing that there will never, in a million 12 hour shopping days, be enough time {& energy!} to see it all! 

so why, exactly, do we do this to ourselves?

despite the exhaustion, market is a huge source of inspiration! in this business it is of utmost importance to stay "fresh". we travel to market to dig up new trends, seek out new vendors in search of the unique containers, ribbons, rental pieces and candles you have come to expect from Liz Stewart Floral Design! also, it gives us a chance to reconnect with our existing vendors and open our minds to new ways of implementing visual displays.

"make new friends and keep the old", the saying goes! we had the pleasure of meeting our fabulous new rep for a brand new, hot-off-the-press candle line that we will be carrying! we can't wait for you to be intoxicated by their 6 signature scents! we also got to meet the face behind one of our long-time vendors, napa. i felt like i was meeting a celebrity! In our world, she absolutely is!

Venue Spotlight: WALKERS LANDING AMELIA ISLAND

Venue Spotlight: WALKERS LANDING AMELIA ISLAND

One of our favorite things about being a wedding professional is the opportunity to work in some of the most beautiful locations in north Florida! Many are hidden gems, tucked away in remote locations or closed to the public. We are lucky enough to lay eyes on some pretty incredible party spots and we thought it would be fun to share some of our favorites with our fans... 

Our first feature is Walkers Landing in Amelia Island Florida. This unique venues boasts waterfront views, giant oak trees and a large open floor plan with plenty of places for us to work our "flower magic". We hope you enjoy this exclusive look inside this fabulous space and stay tuned for more of the Venues we Love...

Decoding the {Designers Choice}: Spring & Summer Blooms

Decoding the {Designers Choice}: Spring & Summer Blooms

The number one thing that sets Liz Stewart Floral Design apart from other flower shops in the area is our use of premium and unusual flowers. We are very selective about where we source our flowers~ using only the top growers from California, Oregon, Holland, South America and even right here in sunny Florida {when the season is right}.  

Because we feature such beautiful and unique blooms in our arrangements we often get phone calls asking  "what is this flower called?" when someone receives an arrangement from our studio. So for fun we thought we would create a new Blog series titled "Decoding the Designers Choice". In this series we will show the reader how we create our lovely seasonal arrangements and provide a little info on each bloom featured.

The Educated Bride Mini Series

The Educated Bride Mini Series

Pinning vs Pennies

Lets face it, searching for inspiration photos online is one of the first (and most fun) things a bride to be does in the early planning stages. These dream pics not only help sort out colors, styles, likes and dislikes, they also help set the stage for your expectations of the big day. Pinterest can be a magical place filled with flowers, cakes and dresses you didn't even know were possible - but behind those dreamy images - is a whole lot of materials, man hours and professional knowledge that can cost you a pretty penny! In this post we focus on three of our favorite "must have" floral elements in any wedding and show you how we have taken those fabulous (over the top) pics from Pinterest and scaled them to fit our client’s pocketbook.
