A Country Rose Florist: Our Favorite Tallahassee Venues

A Country Rose Reveals Our Favorite Tallahasse Venues:

Southwood House and Cottages 

Placed amid a stunning golf course, The Southwood House and cottages offers you and your guests an extraordinary setting for your special event. Rich in history and originally built in 1865 the Southwood House is newly restored to resemble its original and elegant historical appearance. Southwood Plantation started as a large cotton plantation, owned by George Taliafero Ward. The original mansion built in 1865 was destroyed by fire, but in 1939, George Henderson, grandson of Colonel John and Mattie Henderson, moved their family home from downtown Tallahassee on to the old foundation of the original Southwood house. Nestled among acres of rolling hills, majestic oaks, and native flowering trees, the charming manor is now a perfect wedding backdrop. The Southwood House can accommodate up to a 100 person stand-up cocktail heavy appetizer reception inside the house, but will accept events as large as 250 guests, making it ideal for moderately sized weddings. Cottages on the property are also available for rent by the night for your event. Ideal for wedding party accommodations.

  1. I agree! The Southwood house is really a gorgeous spot for a wedding!!

  2. Planning for a wedding seems easy but it is quite difficult to find the right venues. The manager at the Seattle Wedding venues were so wonderful, personable, and responsive. We received the best possible service on our wedding day.

  3. For any event planner, I highly recommend working with guys from BloomThat Bouquets. Your overall experience will be wonderful! Fast delivery and on time service!
