an intmate event space for lifes big moments

We are an event space serving clients with 40 guests or less. Our space isn’t about the masses it’s about the memories. Memories made while enjoying a small elopement ceremony, that special birthday party, preparing to welcome that bundle of joy into your life, or celebrating 50 amazing years with that perfect partner.


Not only are Barn 697's flower gorgeous, but the ballon arches will change the whole feel of your event.  Lemona and team came in and transformed the space for an important event.  The whole night our guest wanted their pictures taken in front of the balloons and was all over social media the next day.  Lemona made my event a huge success!  She is extrordinarily talented and pays great attention to detail!

What an amazing transformation of a tobacco barn to a beautiful flower farm and small event space on Dillingham Road in Barnardsville!  I look forward to choosing seasonal flowers that are as fresh as can be.  Lemona Banks has many familiar favorites along with specialty blossoms for the discerning customer.

Barn 697 felt like a piece of home

Beautiful setting! Lemona did a fabulous job. From the fresh flowers to the decor, everything was perfect. I attended a birthday party and didn't want to leave. The fire pit was the perfect spot to watch the sunset and relax with friends. Can't wait to go back one day! Barn 697 felt like a piece of home.
