Milestones Floral Décor for Events is a new (created in 2012 ) dedicated and focused division of parent company, Village Green Flowers & Gifts (created in 2002). After 10 years as a singular entity, we realized we needed a unique branch to handle the growing wedding and event business, thus the birth of “Milestones.” So, while Village Green handles our retail location and European-style flower market, delivering signature, recognizably styled arrangements daily throughout Metro-Atlanta, Milestones Floral Décor for Events handles weddings and events. Both companies work in tandem to help each other to do what we do best in both fields as we continue to grow.

Service- When choosing a florist, you want to make sure that you are going to get the quality and prompt service you deserve. With Milestones, you work with the same Event Specialist throughout the entire event planning process. All emails and phone calls are answered within 24 business hours.
Quality and Reputation Count- Once you have chosen your florist paid the balance and decided on all the details it can be nerve-wracking to wait for the big day. You want to know that the people you have chosen to fulfill your vision are reputable, visionary, smart and will execute your design impeccably. We have the Quality, Reputation and Execution to ensure your designs will exceed your expectations.
Defining Visions- Sometimes when planning a special event, you may not know exactly what you want. It takes a special kind of person to listen to your ideas, give feedback and help you define what your creative vision is. Outside of our slideshows on this site, we have an even more extensive Portfolio to help you get inspired and excited about what we can do for you!
What types of events do you handle?
We can arrange flowers for any special occasion you have. Of course, one automatically thinks of weddings, but there are also social events and holiday parties, fundraiser events, corporate events, bar and bat mitzvahs, bridal and baby showers and all other celebrations from shindigs to soirees! All the most important occasions in your life require flowers!
Do I need to set up an appointment?
Appointments are recommended for your consultation and for making payments, finalizing or making adjustments to your contract. If you have general questions to get you started, or if you live out of town, you can always email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 770-435-9393.
The initial consult and quote lasts about an hour, or up to an hour, and that is complimentary. After that will there is a charge for our consultation service, however, if you book with us and make a deposit, more time is allowed as is necessary. Also, if any questions come up after the initial consult, we are happy to answer those free of charge as well.
What is the process for ordering flowers for my event?
Milestones Floral Décor for Events offers one free consultation per potential client. During this consultation we review different arrangements, flowers, colors, design and the style, theme and overall feel you are looking for.
Prior to your appointment, we may ask you to send us some information that will help us to prepare for your meeting and make it more efficient so that we can get right to talking about YOUR flowers!
Generally, we will be able to give you a quote by the end of your consultation.
Once you have made the decision to go with Milestones and you feel comfortable moving forward, we ask that you sign a contract and make a deposit to reserve our services for the date of your event.
After that, we handle the rest!
Where are you located?
Our retail shop is located at 3246-H Atlanta Rd. in Smyrna GA. This is the ideal place to meet for your consultation, as you are able to see, in person, the changing inventory of flowers that we carry on a day to day basis, as well as the rental pieces we have to offer. If you live out of state, or cannot come into the shop for any reason, we also offer phone consultations.
Do you offer on site consultations?
We do offer on site consultations. Sometimes your venue may have special requirements or you may have grand ideas and need a florist who can bring them to life for you. In that case our on site service helps make sure that all the special details will be perfect and in place for your event.
When should I start planning the flowers for my event?
It is never too early to start planning flowers for your special day. Wherever you are in the process we can help you. Many brides book their flowers at least a year in advance. While we can certainly work on less time, you will want to book our services as early as possible in order to ensure our availability for your event date.
What if my wedding or event is next week? Can you still help me?
Normally your flowers are ordered from the farms at least 2-3 weeks in advance of your event, and we usually plan for those purchases months in advance. That being said, we have been known to pull together a great event in a week's time. While we recommend that you plan early for your special event, we can still help you with anything you may need. As you get closer to your big day, quantities, colors and types of flowers can be limited. We can get much better pricing and the best quality as well with the advance time.
Do you offer packages?
Because every event is unique, we do not create package pricing. We have never had two clients want exactly the same package in over 20 years. We do, however, have itemized price lists available to give you an idea of some basic pricing guidelines, and a few different examples based on some common budgets. We will work with you to create an event that is custom fit to your style, theme and price point.
How much do flowers cost?
The price of flower arrangements varies dramatically based on the seasonal pricing of flowers, the amount of items you need, how full or large they are and what type of flowers you choose. Our specialty is guiding you based on the factors that are important to you, whether it be the perfect look no matter the cost, the best bang for your buck or somewhere in between. We do not discriminate! While we love the artistic range we can display on large projects, we are happy to do any size event. Our goal is happy clients!
Do you have a minimum order?
There is never a minimum order with us. We can work within the price point at which you feel comfortable.
What happens on my event day?
While some choose to pick up their flowers from our location in Smyrna GA, we offer delivery to over 100 zip codes in the Metro-Atlanta area. We are also available for events in tropical locations : ) Just let us know where we need to go!
We offer full-service delivery. We can discuss what is best for you during your consultation. This could include on-site set up and design, lighting, drapery, linens, rental items and late-night or next day pickup service of rental items, among other things.
Can I see some of your previous work?
We frequently update our Instagram Page and Flickr Portfolio which has over 1000 pictures. This is a great way to peruse some of our work as well as get inspired about what we can do for you! It is organized by item so you can easily go right to what you are looking for. All the photos posted are our unique designs and we update this portfolio as frequently as we can. Instagram is actually more new pictures and designs. Flickr has more of our archives of photos. : )
Can you get the specific flowers I want?
We can get any flowers that are traded commercially throughout the world. Throughout the year, flowers fluctuate in price and availability. Luckily for you, we are experts at determining what will have the best quality and price for your look at the time of year of your event. We will advise you of the availability risks and rewards of your choices during your consult.
Do you have rental items?
Yes, we have a wide range of rental items available and we are consistently adding to the products we have available. Some of the items we have available are arches, chuppahs, columns, stands, urns, votive candles, centerpiece containers and vases and White Pipe & Drape ( fabric backdrop).
Do we create sample arrangements?
Yes! We can definitely create sample arrangements. There is normally a charge for that. Please inquire if you are interested. Sometimes brides will get a sample arrangement and use it for their shower in advance.
Do we preserve bouquets?
We have 2 companies that we recommend to use for flower preservation. Please inquire!
