If you haven't visited Augusta's Water Street in the past several months or years, then you have no idea the amount of growth that has happened. Downtown Augusta is growing rapidly, and one of the newest businesses to join the downtown Augusta family is Callie's Flower Shop and Design Studio located at 267 Water St; and it's now open!

When owner Callie Dyer was asked where her love of Floral design came from, you'll be shocked to learn it wasn't a lifelong dream of hers. Even though Callie is a 3rd generation lover of flowers and grew up working in both her mom's and grandmother's gardens, it wasn't something she imagined she'd do full time.

It wasn't until Callie sat down in the break room at her previous job and opened a magazine that happened to feature a "gorgeous floral display" did she know it was where her passion was. From there, Callie and her husband Ethan purchased a vintage ice cream truck, which they planned to create into what they called "Flower Truck Co.". Unfortunately, that didn't work as they hoped and led them to rebrand the business into a brick a mortar with a new name.


Callie's Flower Shop & Design Studio is the perfect place to stop in for a single long stem rose, a whole bouquet for that special someone in your life, and they even specialize in Bridal flowers. Guests looking for out-of-season blooms can make special orders for those items, but they should expect a two-week turnaround time.

The next time you're in the Augusta area, make a stop downtown and welcome Callie to the best community out there!
