The Cathedral of St. Philip - Atlanta, GA

Flower Festival: Bringing the Outdoors In

As temperatures dip to remind us winter has arrived in full force, we take refuge in the cozy warmth of our homes and spend less time outside. What if we were to suggest to you that for three days during the Cathedral Antiques Show you could experience springtime and flowers in all of their glory, despite the weather outside?

Beginning on Thursday, February 4, garden clubs and flower guilds are going to transform spaces throughout the Cathedral and “bring the outdoors in.” Spaces throughout the Antiques Show will be adorned with the work of leading garden clubs, and the sacred spaces in the Cathedral of St. Philip will be graced by the designs of Atlanta flower guilds. You can see the best in floral design and encounter masterpieces of classic style as well as examples of all of the latest trends.

Participating garden clubs are Boxwood, Cherokee, Designer’s Club, Habersham, Ivy, Laurel, Northwood, Paces, Peachtree, Piedmont, Rose, and Sandy Springs. Gardens To Love by Marcia Weber will transform the Cathedral Atrium with a stunning display. Flower guilds participating are All Saints’ Episcopal Church, First Presbyterian Church, St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, and the Cathedral.

New this year, the Cathedral Antiques Show is offering a special ticket package for Friday, February 5. The Friday Bouquet offers entrance to the Antiques Show and admission to see two renowned speakers. Veranda magazine’s editor, Clint Smith, will discuss his book The Romance of Flowers at 10:30 a.m. and Belgian floral designer Gudrun Cottenier will demonstrate tablescape designs from her most recent book, Floral Party Table Decorations, at 1:30 p.m. Tickets are available on the website for only $55.

Gather your garden friends, find creative inspiration, and experience the beauty of flowers, no matter what the weather!
