Our Story – Bud Floral and Home

Our Story

My favorite thing growing up was helping my beautiful Grandmother Margaret set a party table.

Even at 90, she teased that I would blow in like a hurricane and rearrange everything she had just done.

Having “company” meant line-dried linens, well-worn silver, and, of course, Grandpa Bud’s prize-winning flowers; orchids being his favorite.

With buds and stems still warm from the green house or garden sun, I couldn’t wait to help my Grandmother arrange these colorful treasures into a centerpiece.

Bud’s passion went beyond our table... An illness, birthday, death or “just because” would prompt a beautiful “Grandpa Bud bouquet” and my young eyes saw our neighbors’ worlds become immediately brighter and our community closer.

What better way to honor my Grandparents’ legacy than to continue it...and name my inherited passion after them.

I’ve always strived to make others feel special.

One way I love to do that is through thoughtful and unique gifts.

When I heard that Jamie was looking to expand the Home and Gift side of Bud Floral, it seemed the perfect opportunity to blend my love of specialty items, including art, home decor and artisan jewelry with Jamie’s beautiful floral designs to create a customized shopping experience that is special and distinctive to the Chattanooga area.

Come visit Bud Floral + Home, where we not only strive to make you feel special, but help you, in turn, find the perfect gift for a special person in your life or a unique item for your own home.
