So say practitioners of Feng Shui, the ancient Eastern metaphysical science that says the positioning of furniture, color schemes and even particular decor can directly influence the comfort of your surroundings and your overall well-being.

Live flowers, in particular, are believed to bring strong healing energy and good luck to your home. What a wonderful excuse for a standing weekly order from Flowers by Tony Brewer!

Feng Shui has its roots in China, where it was used as far back as 3,000 years ago largely to orient tombs, important structures and homes in a way believed to promote good fortune and success.

In modern times, many people continue to use special Feng Shui grids and compasses to map distinct areas of a building and plan decor that promotes good “chi” –  or energy.

Meticulously arranging your house to align with Feng Shui theories may not be practical for you. But adding a fresh-cut flower arrangement by the master florists at our Ritz-Carlton Buckhead boutique is a fast, fragrant way to add a little good chi to your living space! Try these flowers for some fresh-cut Feng Shui :

pink peony, peony, peony flower, pink flower
Peony: These playful perennials have long been used in Feng Shui to influence stronger loving relationships. Try these blossoms in pink or red – a symbol of passion and emotion – to kindle romance and encourage refreshed love. Perfect for a bedroom or even a den.

orchid, orchids, purple flower, purple orchid

Orchids: Renowned for their delicately abstract beauty, these refined blossoms offer a double-shot of Feng Shui goodness. Most classically associated with the color purple, the Feng Shui shade representing faith, they’re also believed to represent the quest for perfection and encourage abundance. A great pick me up!

narcissus, narcissus flower, white flower, daffodil, white and yellow daffodil, yellow and white daffodil

Narcissus or Daffodil: This largely spring-blossoming flower is particularly powerful in white – a color affiliated with strength in Feng Shui culture. Overall, these cheery blooms are believed to encourage the “flowering” of one’s career. Sounds like the perfect choice for a home office!

Chrysanthemum: According to Feng Shui, this popular flower brings something we could all use – a life of ease and balance. Try blossoms with an accent flower in blue – a color affiliated with relaxation – for an extra shot of peace and serenity in your home.
Whether you subscribe to Feng Shui properties or not, adding a breathtaking arrangement of fresh-cut flowers is a quick way to bring beauty, elegance and a little bit of spring freshness to your home year-round!

The Perfect Gift! Valentine’s Day Edition

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, and the standard dozen roses just won’t do anymore.  Don’t worry!  We have three ideas that are sure to make you look like a superstar for the rest of the year.

1.  Unique and beautiful flowers year round from Flowers by Tony Brewer.

Instead of placing one order for flowers make it a reoccurring order.  Whether you bring home flowers weekly or monthly, you will be sure to delight your significant other by letting him or her know you are celebrating your love year round.

This is a wonderful arrangement from Flowers by Tony Brewer with red at the center to symbolize love, purple for passion, and yellow for friendship.  This is just a sample of one of the beautiful arrangements you could bring home every week!

2.  Support a wonderful cause and celebrate love at the Epilepsy Foundation of Georgia Gala.

If your love loves to give back this is the best gift for you.  This year the gala is themed A Taste of Love: An Evening of Food, Wine & Philanthropy.  The gala will take place February 11th with an auction to raise money for the foundation.  The auction will feature the adorable Coco, a golden doodle puppy, who will provide years of love and wonderful memories.  For more information, please visit their website.

3.  Last but not least, a garden!

A garden is a wonderful family activity that your children will love.  This is a great way to appreciate the earth while learning about new vegetables.  This year round activity will make the entire family proud.  If you need some ideas, just stop by our office to see our garden.  Some of our favorites include kale and lavender.

“Oh, if it be to choose and call thee mine, love, thou art every day my Valentine!”

Featured Partner: Flowers by Tony Brewer

Many people don’t know that Tony got his start as a florist, so it was only natural for him to launch Flowers by Tony Brewer last year. Floral design is already a large part of what we do out of our central office, so adding a retail floral design center, right in the Ritz-Carlton Buckhead, allowed us to accept more floral jobs and also fill a void for high end personal bouquet and arrangement design.

Our staff at “the flower shop,” as we call it, does an awesome job designing for special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, births, small dinners and gatherings, and other celebratory moments. And when the occasion arises, they are able to take on small receptions and other social and corporate events, especially in the Buckhead area. With a distinctly elegant Southern vibe, the Flowers staff brings a creative edge that clients have to come expect from a Tony Brewer venture.

Perfect for any occasion (especially for delivery to Ritz-Carlton Buckhead guests!), Flowers by Tony Brewer delivers creative, custom floral arrangements with unparalleled service. Visit their website or give them a call at 404.906.1911 for your next celebratory arrangement!
