Antique Handcrafted Stain Glass bottle Artistry!

  What a wonderful thing to put in your house. I have two at my own home that are connected to an antique glass baby bottle and you can actually put your childs first hair cut, first lost tooth and anything else that is very sentimental in the bottle as a beautiful keepsake. 
A must see!

Sugar Magnolia's New Favorite Lafco Candle

Lafco does it again with their new fragrance from their dream home collection called Ranch House Big Sky. White Patchouli is layered with rich notes of pink peppercorns and camelia. It is a sure winner for fall and winter. I cannot wait to burn this in my own home!

Don't let the Pigeon Drive the Bus

A great book by Mo Williams and wonderful to have the pigeon stuffed animal that screams "Let me Drive the Bus!!!!" My youngest son walked out my store today with this under his arm. I got home from work and he is still carrying it around.  A great gift for young boys and girls! 
Remember Sugar Magnolia always gift wraps for free!

La Vie Parisienne

If you need a show stopping piece of jewelry you must come in and make this purchase. I clearly own one of my own and cannot go anywhere without women stopping me asking where I bought it. Its on a 40" chain that can be worn long or doubled up. The rich uniqueness will turn any classic outfit to modern chic in a heartbeat!

"If I had a hundred wishes I would give them all to you"

If you asked me on any given day what my absolute favorite item in the store is, nestled in the front corner of Sugar Magnolia,  in a vintage table drawer are "WISH TICKETS."  It is the most amazing gift on it's own and carries with it the most incredible sentiment...who would not want to extend to someone you love 100 wishes??....this simple gift captures the heart and delivers love like nothing else.  It is a great gift on it's own, the perfect add on to a flower arrangement, candy display,birthday gift, shower gift or even a house warming gift.   The "WISH TICKETS" are ageless, a child, teen, or any adult will feel, know and understand the sentiment behind this simple yet powerful vintage gift.

Vintage Florals through the lens of photographer Stacy Kokes

This is an example of vintage wedding floral design courtesy Stacey Kokes photography.
I absolutely love the textures brought in through the use of succulents and the pop of eggplant calla lilies. Nothing is more vintage than antiqued mercury glass. LOVE IT!

No words needed for this bouquet!

Dedicated to Michael Brown

My blog today is dedicated to one of the Sugar Magnolia Founders Michael Brown married to original owner Jeanette Brown and father to co-owner Jenni Taffe. He was and will always be loved throughout the community. Mike was a wonderful Friend to anyone that met him and was such a wonderful husband to Jeanette and father to Jenni, Alex, and Bobby. I can and will always say that myself and my husband were blessed to have known him. We will never forget him and will forever remain in our hearts.  Thank you for being you and enriching all of our lives with happiness and laughter that surrounded your total being. You leave a legacy of love!

I am so proud of our store but I don't feel like our website is a good reflection of us. That is why I have been working on a new website for a couple months with Net-Craft Media and the lovely Keith Pitts Photography for all of our product images for the new website. Expect to see a magical website by us at the End of august.  Where you can actually order flowers!!!! :)
