I found this Black-owned florist through a Google search when I needed to send some flowers to a grieving friend. I’m so glad that I found Warren + Forrest and I’m very excited to use their services again.
When I ordered, you can choose one of three sizes for individual arrangements—15, 25, or 35 stems—and also decide whether you want it wrapped in paper or arranged in a vase. Each arrangement is put together by a floral designer and will cost between $55 and $115. I chose a petite arrangement with a vase—total $65—and my friend received a lovely bouquet of pink and white roses, orange lilies, and more.
Since I ordered, Warren + Forrest has added more options. You can order eucalyptus, lavender, or pre-packaged rose petals for $10 or less. There are also 7 additional options for individual arrangements, which include The Scarlet (long-stemmed red roses) and two collaborations with Black-owned businesses—Chocolate Covered Kisses, which includes chocolate covered strawberries from Apple Butter Bakery, and Little Black Dress, which comes with a candle from Len + McAddy Candle. These new options can cost up to $200.
The ordering process is super easy and gives you the option for in-store pick up or metro Atlanta delivery. Pick up is free while their delivery fee starts at $10 for the deliveries made within the City of Atlanta and goes up to $25 for deliveries made to the furthest edges of the metro Atlanta area. You can even request same day delivery, provided you order before noon when the shop is open.
One unique aspect of Warren + Forrest that sets them apart from other floral shops that I have encountered is that they kinda require you to trust their expertise. Although you can note the occasion, they do not guarantee that specific flower varieties will be used in an arrangement. Requests for specific flowers will be accommodated based on availability. Although I was hesitant at first, it was nice to not have to stress over whether I was picking the right flowers or colors for the occasion because I knew I was leaving those decisions in the hands of the experts. They did not disappoint.
Outside of individual arrangements, Warren + Forrest designs for intimate events, and hosts experiences as well. If you want Warren + Forrest to be part of a special day, you can choose the Floral Design Service, which allows you to work with them on the design, or the Full Service Design, which leaves everything to the experts. The curated experiences have included workshops on arranging flowers from the grocery store, couples making wreaths, and more. I have not yet attended one of these experiences, but they look super cute on Instagram.
Overall, my experience with Warren + Forrest was seamless, and I look forward to ordering from them again.
