Blossoms Florist blooms in downtown Milledgeville

MILLEDGEVILLE —  

Mother-daughter duo Sabrah Braddy and Brandy Hudson-Adams have seen their full service florist business pick up during the past three years. So, they recently relocated Blossoms Florist to the heart of Milledgeville’s downtown district to help create even more foot traffic.

“I worked at Lawrence Flower Shop on Thomas Street, and after having my son, Aiden, I didn't have a job to go back to. Me and my mother talked about it and decided to fill the void. We we came up with the idea of a flower shop,” Adams said. “We opened at Ivey Weaver Road in 2010 and business just started growing really quickly.”

Blossoms Florist moved in October 2012 into the 1,750 square foot space at 144 W. Hancock St. which formerly housed Harrold’s Formal Wear.

“We actually weren’t looking to move, but we were approached with the opportunity to move down here, and we thought about it for six months. We thought the only way to continue to grow and be more visible would be in a central location like downtown,” Braddy said. “The community and other downtown merchants have been real receptive. Customers tell us they prefer our new location.”

The business offers custom-made seasonal wreaths and one-of-a-kind floral arrangements for all occasions — weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, showers, funerals and holidays — as well as home decor and gift products at affordable prices.

“Even when we do business for a sad occasion like a funeral, it’s still rewarding because we put a personal touch to everything we do to reflect the deceased. It’s something that gives families a little bit of happiness to help get them through the service,” Braddy said. “[Adams] offers more of a modern twist to all of her bouquets so it’s not just a standard bouquet. We’re also the only people here and in the surrounding counties that have rainbow roses where every petal is a different color.”
