Because the earth laughs in flowers...
Camellia Cottage was established in 2008 by Shannon Marlin, a freelance floral designer. As a child, she watched her grandmother work in the flower beds surrounding a small cottage in the backyard. She was captivated by the lush camellia bushes, and so the name Camellia Cottage was chosen.
At Camellia Cottage our passion is flowers. We create flower arrangements, wreaths, and wedding flowers. We also sell live plants and we are located in North Carolina, just north of Charlotte.
All of our arrangements are handmade by Shannon. She is a certified floral designer and currently working toward a degree in horticulture. She has always loved to garden, growing all kinds of plants. Camellia Cottage allows her to share her passion for flowers in our arrangements.
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator
I'm a floral designer with a love of all things vintage! My free time is spent shopping for antiques and gardening. I'm a floral designer for Camellia Cottage, and a graphic designer for Demure Designs. My vintage shop is called Call Me Cordelia.
Camellia Cottage creates cottage style floral arrangements. These can be made in anything from tea cups, antique planters, or old purses. We turn vintage finds into beautiful florals. Each arrangement is one of a kind and hand made. Camellia Cottage has its own unique style of arrangements which resemble cottage style gardens.
We specialize in silk because they are the "forever flowers". No green thumb, no problem! We can create greeneries for any style home, dining room centerpieces, and other small arrangements. We also offer various planters, vases, silk flower stems, handmade bows, and floral crafts.
Camellia Cottage offers a full line of wedding flowers. We create bridal bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres, alter arrangements, table centerpieces, and so much more!
Custom designed arrangements are also available. These allow you to chose the size, color, and flower types. If you can imagine it we can create it.
Accepted payment methods
- Money Order
For custom orders, we require half down before the order will be created. And the other half must be paid before custom orders will be shipped.
Custom arrangements take longer, and estimated shipping dates are included on a custom item's invoice.
Most items are shipped via United States Postal Service, but some larger arrangements ship via UPS. Our shipping fees are calculated in one of these two ways:
1. Whenever possible it is based on flat rate boxes from USPS.
2. For larger items, it is based on the weight of item, plus packaging materials (i.e. boxes, bubble wrap, ect.) .
Whenever possible, I'll ship more than one item in a box and refund the difference. If you feel you have been overcharged, please contact me and shipping overcharges will be refunded.
We ship internationally, please contact me for special shipping charges.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are unsatisfied with your floral arrangement, we will be glad to change it. Or you can exchange it for another item of equal value.
There are absolutely no returns on any real flower stems, fresh arrangements, or live plants. All sales are final.
Down payments on custom arrangements or wedding flowers will not be refunded, should the order be cancelled.
If an item you ordered is received damaged, please contact me, with a photograph. Most damages will be refunded.
Additional policies and FAQs
We often use props along with our products in order to achieve that magazine cover look with our photos. These props are not for sale, and are not included with your purchase.
