Hanging Wreath

When hosting a party, especially a holiday party, you want to make sure that the ambiance is warm, personal and inviting. This is exactly why we make these hanging wreaths. Not only do we make them in-house, but we have searched high and low for the best designers to make these creations. In fact, Jenny Coulter, who is extremely talented with her wreath design, is using the Colonia House of Flowers as her exclusive design house. They are only available in the shop. We are sooo proud!

Yes, back to the topic of wreaths for soiree’s:  simple wreaths on their own are fabulous. But when guests see a few of these beauties hanging around your home, it’ll be as if you’re casually saying, “Oh, did I forget to mention that I’m an amazing hostess? Sorry about that!” When you’re inevitably complimented, of course, you’ll act as if it was just something you threw together. Inside, we know you’ll be glowing – it’ll be our secret.

Kinfolk Volume 6 in Statesboro

Kinfolk has been a favorite magazine since our introduction… that first publication.  Yes. We still like print and paper around here… it’s a quarterly magazine that celebrates simple living and creating special moments with friends, family, and people you love. These are all the things we covet.

A breath of fresh air, Kinfolk inspires you to get off the computer, cook a meal with friends, play a game, go camping, have a cup of tea in bed, pick flowers, take the long road home or just take a moment out of your life to do nothing. It’s outdoorsy, peaceful, rustic, refined and real.  It’s calm and relaxing. It’s easy and elegant.

It’s what we aspire for… leisure, love, living.

Kinfolk is brimming with practical ideas, impractical ideas, recipes, stories, and vivid photography.  It’s nostalgic, classic and traditional, elegant and real.

It makes a pretty good gift (if we can say so!) with fire-building techniques, recipes for cozy weekends, ideas for venturing out-of-doors, fragrant simmer pots, a foraging guide for pine trees, and inspiration for the dark days of winter.

It’s nostalgic, classic and traditional, elegant and real. It’s wholesome hearted. It’s everything that we are and aspire to be, which is why we are so extremely, excited and honored to tell you that: KINFOLK HAS A HOME ON OUR SHELVES. Yes. We are over the moon, indeed.

You can come in a get a copy, or we are happy to deliver it.

Kitchen Remodel.

Kappa Kappa Gamma

The girls of Kappa Kappa Gamma House on the Georgia Southern University campus have a gorgeous, friendly new kitchen. This commercial cooking area designed by Interiors by Malinda it is sure to make the 100’s of women who use this space on a daily basis proud… and, anxious to cook.  Wow.

Malinda, who just started her own company, says, “I have longed to use my creativity and God given talents in a way that would please God and serve others.” Malinda, we think your longing is quenched. This is so pretty, and functional. We wish you the very best in your new venture.

When Malinda came into the shop sharing her ideas of incorporating a floral into her photo shoot, we beamed as the creative wheels immediately started spinning. After considering centerpieces and elaborate arrangements, we decided a simple, elegant, hand tied bouquet of garden roses is the perfect compliment to the chic and polished  kitchen design.  The Colonial House of Flowers is charmed by the way the photos turned out. And, honored to collaborate on this project. Thank you so much, Malinda.

Here’s to your exciting venture and successful journey!
