Born to Be in Flowers 

In 2016, Sherry Xia opened her flower shop in Johns Creek, Summer Breeze Flowers & Gifts, named after her only daughter, Summer Hang. But the story began for Sherry in China many years prior to moving to the States. 

Sherry said she was a tomboy growing up and never envisioned herself designing floral arrangements. Her husband was a prominent television producer in China. He came home one day and announced that he bought a flower shop! Just like that, out of the blue. So, Sherry found herself running a flower shop and designing arrangements and bouquets. She found that working with flowers was relaxing and that she had a real knack for it.

Eventually, the family moved to the United States. Summer was young when Sherry opened Summer Breeze Flowers & Gifts. An obvious name for the shop was after her beautiful daughter. As Summer grew, she quickly learned the business and designing arrangements came very naturally just as it did for her mom. Summer took over the shop in 2021. She then expanded and opened a second shop in West Midtown. 

Summer says she loves being both a business owner and a working mom. She now has her first child, Jaxson. Hopefully one day she will be able to pass the business on to her son, "but only if he's interested!" says Summer. What Summer most loves about the flower shop business is the meaning behind each arrangement, from congratulating a newborn, to celebrating meaningful days or remembering a loved one. Each arrangement has a beautiful story behind it and is given to express love or thankfulness. Flowers are part of everyone’s life on almost every special occasion. The story continues when a customer calls Summer to let her know how beautiful the arrangements are or how happy the recipient is when they receive the flowers.  That is truly "happily ever after."
