Atlanta Gift Show – Southern Shopping

Friday, July 19th, 2013

AmericasMart in downtown Atlanta, Georgia

The “High Design” Floor

Well I have wrapped up another successful buying and sourcing trip to AmericasMart in Atlanta where lots of great products were found. I saw some wonderful showrooms filled with designer vases and cachepots that I know will look absolutely exquisite when paired with an exclusive Calyx “look.”

The show was definitely busier this time than it has been the past five seasons. Hopefully it is a good indicator that the retail economy is on an upswing.

The color palette was across the board at the show. Blues are definitely trending but there was not a dominant color theme in the showrooms as I walked the floor after floor. There’s still a lot of sparkle and bling out there as well as an “earthy” feel to many products so it really runs the gamut. Holiday patterns and tones were vivid and strong.

On Friday, the temporaries open and I find myself swept away by the offerings in the High Design section. I also love to walk the Gourmet floor and taste the many samples the different vendors offer. This is how we were introduced to our current truffles and carmel supplier, Mary Ann’s Chocolates. One bite was pure bliss!

I look forward to the next show in 2014. I’ll catch the MARTA once again and head to downtown Atlanta, ready for more treasure hunting.

Valentine's Day Orchids with Rouge Royale Gift Set

Here at Calyx Flowers we’re always looking to make our gifts be more than expected. We want the recipient to be stunned by the sheer beauty of our flower arrangements and then see that “But Wait…there’s more!” when they open the box. This year we gave our Valentine’s Day Orchids an added something extra by offering our Flower Lovers the option to combine the orchid bouquet and vase with the Rouge Royale Gift Set by our friends at Fringe Studio.

Arriving with the bouquet in a gorgeous gold gift box, the fragrant gift set is a beautiful combination of bath salts and matching soap on a decorative glass tray.  It really makes an elegant statement as a Valentine’s Day gift.

  • Fragrance: Mulberry & Lily
  • 6 oz. Soap
  • 7 oz. Bath Salts
  • Tray: decorative glass, 4″ x 6″

Perfect for Valentine's Day!

Love This Candle!

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

So you’re sending the gift of flowers or a blooming plant to that special someone. Light up their day a tad bit more with the luxurious Love candle tin we’re featuring in our summer catalog. The fresh scent is a luxurious blend of currant and cassis from Fringe Studio. The dainty tin not only shares your loving sentiments but will showcase them for quite some with its 30+ hour burn time.

Perfect for around the house or on the desk in an office, I have no doubt this a very fashionable, final flourish to an already stellar Calyx gift
