Accent Decor Behind the Scenes: Pride for Parents

It's easy to get caught up in all the last minute tasks and projects before the year comes to a close, so at Accent Decor, we try to make a point to remind ourselves that one of our priorities is to always give back and reach out to the needs of our community.

We truly believe there's always enough time to put business aside and focus on giving back to the community we're apart of.

For the past four years, employees at Accent Decor have generously donated gifts and their time to Pride for Parents, a community Christmas store that allows parents the dignity to provide gifts for their children.

Started by FCS, this program not only helps parents provide for their families, but also assists in providing jobs for South Atlanta residents.

This year, Accent Decor set up two Christmas trees with handwritten tags showing gifts that children in South Atlanta are wishing to receive this year.

In addition to providing gifts for the store, a few of our employees headed over to the shop at the Carver Neighborhood Market to bring donations and assist in sorting and pricing toys.

We're so honored to have a helping hand with Pride for Parents during the holidays, and from the bottom of our hearts, we wish you all a safe and joyful holiday with your family and friends.

Our office will be closed December 24 and 25 this week, but it'll be back to business for us on Monday, December 28. Until then, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Win a Free Trip to Market!

As we put the final touches on our showrooms this year, we're reminded of how grateful we are of our amazing customers and the support they show us year after year. It's easy to forget that there are individuals behind a business, and in the same breath that these individuals can celebrate success, they can experience great loss. As an extension of the Accent Decor family, helping our customers reach their potential as successful businesses is something we're passionate about.

We're asking our customers and followers to nominate someone in the floral, event, or home decor industry who is deserving of attending market this year. We would love for you to send us one to two paragraphs explaining why you feel this person deserves to go.

This could be someone who just started their business and doesn't have the funds to make the trip, or someone who's been in business for many years, but may have experienced recent hardships that made it difficult to find room in the budget to travel.

We'll provide airfare and hotel lodgings for the winner to attend one of the following markets:

AmericasMart | Atlanta, GA 
January 12-19, 2016

Dallas Market Center | Dallas, TX
January 20-26, 2016

Las Vegas Market Center | Las Vegas, NV
January 24-28, 2016

All we ask is that you send us the following:
  • Nominee's name
  • Nominee's business name
  • Nominee's city and state
  • Nominee's preferred contact information
  • 1-2 paragraphs explaining why this person is deserving 
Please email your submission to by December 27, 11:59 PM EST.

One of the nominees will be selected and notified by January 1, 2016. Nominee has until January 4th to respond to our offer before another person is selected. Nominees must be a legitimate business and a registered customer with Accent Decor. No purchase necessary to qualify.

Ultimate Wedding Style with EMC

Last week, we shared four stunning wedding looks from the EMC+ Intimate to Ultimate floral workshop with you, and this week, we're looking at their ultimate wedding style at the Biltmore Ballrooms in Atlanta.

Fit for a French palace, the grand oval estate table is certainly a sight to behold with more than 20 silver candelabras stacked high with white avalanche roses and swagged with crystal garlands to create a staggering display for 36 seated guests. 

Everything in the ballroom was precisely calculated to fit the space in order to execute this magnificent display of fine floral work. On the north side of the ballroom, the grand window was graced with a curving flower wall of roses and branches.

4 Intimate Wedding Styles with EMC

We were honored to be one of the sponsors of the EMC+ Intimate to Ultimate workshop in August. Led by Hitomi Gilliam AIFD and Tomas De Bruyne, EMC hosted this specialized workshop to provide a complete experience for planning, prepping, and executing large scale, luxury floral design for high-end weddings.

Over the course of three days, students had the opportunity to gain hands-on experience as they learned new floral design techniques.

Here's some highlights from day 1 of the Intimate to Ultimate Workshop in Atlanta!

Intimate Settings at the Georgian Terrace Hotel, Atlanta 

Students were asked to create four intimate looks inspired by mood boards and specific locations in the hotel. From learning bouquet holder mechanics and armature construction to receiving first hand experience in styling a photo shoot, the students had a fulfilling first day.

Look 1: Neo Moderne - featuring our Amaryllis Vases.

Look 2: Classic Romance - featuring our Nikki Candelabra, Etude Vases, and Blush Votives.

Look 3: Urban Organics -featuring our Etude Vases.

Look 4: Tropical Romance - featuring our Moretti Candelabra and Rota Vases

Next week, we'll share our favorite displays from Day Two, where the students moved from intimate arrangements to ultimate displays of grandeur.
