Showcasing our Customers

One of my favorite things about this job is when I get notes and pictures from our customers with pictures of them using our products in their designs. The creativity, the range of styles, it's just beautiful and inspiring - and I love it!

Here are a few recent submissions from customers. You can see more of their work in our Design Center.

Cyber Monday

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and ate a LOT of food. I know we sure did here at our house. And even after declaring that we were so full we would never eat again, we proceeded to enjoy leftovers mere hours following the big meal.

You may have noticed that our website was having some issues this weekend. We were upgrading our server, to make your experience on our website faster and easier. Everything should now be in proper working order, so visit and shop away!

And don't forget about our big holiday sale! Shop online now to save big on lots of our favorite items.

T2, Sale, Thanks & Giving

It's a short work-week this week, because Thursday is Thanksgiving! I know all of us at Accent Decor are especially thankful this year for all of you. Our clients are the biggest reason we do what we do - and we couldn't be more grateful for your support! I am also reminded this year how much we have to be thankful for.
This week's Tips and Tricks video offers a brilliant sparkling design - perfect for the holidays! Hitomi creates a dramatic armature using Mistumata, Fat Glass, and Starbusts (which she calls "sparkle balls"). If you're having trouble viewing it here, you can also watch it on our YouTube channel.

The day after Thanksgiving is the biggest shopping day of the year, right? So here at Accent Decor, we're celebrating the holidays with a BIG sale! We're talking lots of new products, RED wire spheres, the RED Urban . . . in other words, plenty of red products that are perfect for the holidays - but also for Valentine's day. So plan ahead and stock your shelves with our big sale!

Pretty colors right? A little girly maybe, but I love it! From Amorology
Very white and wintery (and beautiful). Rota Vases look so great when they are clustered like this, don't they?

Design Days Slideshow


I hope y'all aren't tired of hearing of Design Days yet. . . I know I'm not! I love seeing all the inspiring pieces, and designs and things that I might have missed, even seeing it in person the first time around!
Anyways, with that in mind, we've created a slideshow on YouTube of tons of pictures from the event. So if you need inspiration, want to see what you missed, or just peek at some of the faces that were there, go visit our YouTube channel and check it out (or you can just watch it right here on the blog).

Visit our Design Center to see a slideshow with more images from the event.

Our Industry Partners

One of the great parts about Design Days was that we had lots of our vendors there, showing our customers their flowers, answering questions, etc. I think it was a great way to network for both sides and I'm glad we were able to be a part of it. Not to mention, there were some seriously beautiful flowers there as a result!

Design Days Recap and Pictures

Design Days is over! I cant believe how quickly it came and went . . . months and months of preparations and flowers and designs and work. We were glad to be able to meet so many of you there, and think those of you who made it out enjoyed the show. Honestly, I was totally impressed when I showed up and saw all the gorgeous designs and everything that the design team had put together. Seriously, it was inspiration overload!

Here's what our customers are saying about the event:
"Thank you to AD and the fab designers for a terrific 2 days in Atlanta. You put on an outstanding event, cannot wait until next time!" -Josette Vest from Bloomers NY

"Thank you for your hospitality over Design Days. We had a delightful time and cant wait to visit again!" -Adina at Frilly Bloomers

"Thank you Margaret and Frank for giving us the best design shows ever at your showroom!" -Kimberly Nelson Floral Designs

For a full recap and more: "Thanks for a great time! I got back to the shop, and felt totally rejuvenated, and ready for the 4th quarter. Here's just a sample of what I took away from the show. Please do this next year: same time of year, it was perfect!" (Kristi at Dahlia A Florist)

Here's a few pictures from the two-day event . . . look for more coming soon on the blog and in our online Design Center.

I can't believe Design Days is over! I have so many fantastic pictures and tips and fun stuff I want to share from the event, but I figured I'd take a quick break from all the Design Days to share a few inspirations I've gathered from across the world-wide-web this week.
