Adding to event space
New Albany has increased its space for holding meetings, dinners, parties and other events with the opening of In Bloom downtown.
In Bloom, which is a flower and gift shop, has a companion space that can accommodate at least 125 people for sit-down events. Depending on table arrangements, as many at 140 to 160 can be seated. It also has a catering kitchen.
The business, which opened this week, is owned by John Hickey and Cathy Garrett.
The owners hope to provide an in-town outlet for events that might be too large for the Magnolia Civic Center meeting room or for caterers whose requirements might not be able to be accommodated at the center or at local church or school facilities.
Garrett emphasized that In Bloom wants to complement, not compete with, the Civic Center.
We think the In Bloom meeting space is a positive addition to New Albany and likely will lead to fewer events being scheduled by local people at out-of-town venues.
