[ATLANTA] Step Inside Pollen

Ahhh Pollen!

From the website at least, it looks simply amazing, doesn't it? It appears to contain all of the elements that make a good garden shop/home store in my opinion. Showcasing the beauty found in nature, combining this organic beauty with objects and colors that mimic nature. I'm thrilled that they offer floral design. I've always dreamt of owning a store like this, a home store that sells fresh beautiful flowers where I could employ my wonderful mother to handle the floral side of the business. My mother is a floral designer and landscape artist, my wedding bursted with flowers thanks to my talented mother. Thanks, Mom. My store would also have a courtyard with a beautiful water feature of fountains and a small pond loaded with vibrant orange and red coi. You could enjoy the warmth of the sun, dessert and expresso with friends, al fresco style. I digress...one can dream can't she? :)

Back to beautiful Pollen. I found a review about them on citysearch cited below:

"At this rustic Buckhead boutique, garden lovers can find everything from pots and vases to garden hardware, vintage vessels, bags, pillows, furniture and unique floral arrangements. Also available are outdoor containers, artwork, wicker chairs and painted rockers. Gardening types who find their way here become loyal customers. Pollen's experts can be called upon to arrange flowers for themed parties and events ranging from swamp-inspired bayou bashes to gatherings with a vintage picnic vibe."

Doesn't this sound great?

Looks like they sell Hable Construction, Judy Ross, Lotta Jansdotter and John Derian goodies, too. Fresh flowers and home accessories from these designers? Catch me, I'm falling!

Thanks, Michelle, for linking us to this great store!
