Flowers of Giverny owner, Terry Furuta, shares the gift of wellness through florals and community.
Terry Furuta has been a floral designer for almost 50 years. Her newest shop and boutique, Flowers of Giverny, resides in the heart of Senior Living Community, Corso Atlanta. The recently expanded shop welcomes residents and esteemed guests of the community with the fragrant scents of orchids and seasonal blooms the moment they walk through the doors.
“It’s all about making people feel good,” Terry emphasizes. “The plants are just a part of it.”
Terry’s creative masterpieces simply make people feel happy. Flowers of Giverny pulsate an organic sense of wellness through the atmosphere while evoking peace and positivity. It is common to see residents and guests gather in her storefront to enjoy conversation with neighbors, moments of relaxation, and witness exotic blossoms in full bloom.
“We smile when they come in and we welcome them into the shop,” Terry explains. “We listen to their stories and we always ask them about their kids or pets, the things that are important to them, what they did, their hobbies and what their interests are. We’re just good listeners who enjoy learning from them too.”
Beyond the scope of florals, Terry also showcases local artists, vendors, and businesses, in an effort to share their talents with the Corso Atlanta community. She often utilizes the pottery and planting vessels created by local artists in floral arrangement workshops with residents. The locally created vessels offer a distinctive and distinguished touch.
Her workshops are truly an all-encompassing experience that takes delight in camaraderie, conversation, and creative works. Each monthly workshop is filled with participants excited to create the next seasonal featured piece.
The presence of Flowers of Giverny allows community members an opportunity to decompress after a long day. The shop welcomes and encourages laughter and smiles through helping hands and captivating friendships. It’s more than just a flower or sundries shop, it’s an experience that builds relationships and creates connections throughout the Corso community.
