We are beyond ecstatic to show you some pics from the Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair last week. It’s our chance to share with you the exciting projects we’ve been working on (because there is so much time, effort, fun and love in them you just won’t believe}

We call our booth Starry Night by Colonial House. It makes us think of Vincent Van Gough though it doesn’t carry the same magnificance. It makes our inner artist smile. ūüôā

For those of you who do not know, Colonial House of Flowers has been a part of the fair for as long as we can remember. After a short few year hiatus, we returned to the scene in 2012 (in the parade & display) as we reminisced of the Christmas House by Colonial House of year’s past. Though we didn’t revive the old peek-through into Santa’s world, we did enter a booth display. And, oh, oh, the fun it was – so we did it again this year!
Love the tandem bike ride through downtown Statesboro to the Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair Parade. BEST NIGHT OF THE YEAR!

This last photo is of Mike Bowen & Greg Ponder post the party, end of the week after it was all over. You guys represent a whole lot of people that we want to thank for the endless hours of hardwork and enthusiasm that you and the Kiwanis put into this Statesboro tradition. 4-H. Pittman Park Church. And, we know there are many others.
The fair holds a special place in our hearts. Thank you for the best one, yet. See you in 2014!

The Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair has long been a highlight of the Colonial House of Flowers year. 2012 is no exception. For years, Mr. Elmer and Mrs. Carolyn Phillips presented a Christmas house where passers-by could peep in a window to see a festively, perfectly decorated room. Do you remember it?

Mrs. Carolyn said they spent a lot of time arranging it “just so,” that there was a light inside to illuminate a scene with Santa, a tree and presents.

This year’s booth and parade entries are inspired by the Phillip’s emphasis on customer service and impeccable, timely delivery. These values have proven the cornerstone of the florist, and part of what make the Colonial House of Flowers so special and magical.

The doors to our little flower boutique opened in 1968… and, we’ve been making deliveries ever since!
