Find More Than Flowers at Blooming Branches!

Flowers often make the perfect gift for special occasions. Whether it be for wedding decoration, sympathy flowers, an anniversary, or even something as a symbol of appreciation, a bouquet of flowers can brighten anybody’s day. While exploring the scenic byway through Clayton County, stop into Blooming Branches in Guttenberg for a cup of coffee, a smoothie, or a special gift for mom. For any occasion, a gift from Blooming Branches can make anybody’s day special.

On a brisk autumn weekend, I decided to host a dinner party for family and friends to celebrate the last few days of summer and bring in the new season. However, I had nothing prepared, and the living room needed something to brighten up the space. Luckily, I knew just where to go; off to Blooming Branches!

As I walked through the doorway, Linda welcomed me inside and showed me some new items that she just got shipped in. While I gazed upon the shelves, I laid my eyes on a row of four glass milk jugs tied together with rope with silk grasses and leaves spraying out of them. It was a charming piece that I just couldn’t resist. I asked Linda to hold it back for me, while I continued my loop around the store. Soon, I came across different soup and cheese ball mixes; what a life saver! I grabbed a few and started planning out the dinner menu.

With décor items and mixes in hand, I made my way to the cashier counter when a bouquet in the cooler caught my eye. It was a simple glass vase filled with hydrangea, orange carnations, and gillyflower; it was a beautiful arrangement, and I knew it’d be a perfect fit on my dining table. Coming to Blooming Branches turned out to be the perfect plan; one stop, twenty minutes, and my dinner party was planned and ready to go!

While waiting at the counter, I noticed a smoothie and coffee drink menu by the register. As I read through all the different flavors, ‘cotton candy’ stood out to me the most. Unable to resist the temptation, I left the shop with new décor, a beautiful floral arrangement, mixes for treats, and a sweet, delicious smoothie to enjoy on the ride home.

Blooming Branches was the perfect place to get everything I needed for my dinner party. They had all the things I needed, their staff was very helpful and friendly, and my party went without a hitch. For any occasion, Blooming Branches has whatever you need to make an evening or someone’s day special.

    I completely agree that flowers work for just about any occasion. Mothers day, Valentine's day, graduations, and just about anytime, well, not Fathers day. I least my dad wouldn't think they're all that great, LOL! He is a hard working guy and would prefer others things.
