As gas prices continue to rise across the Triad, it’s not just affecting businesses, but delivery drivers as well. WXII 12 News spoke with a local florist company about how these high prices are affecting them. At Bo-Ty Walker Florist in Winston-Salem, sales associate Courtney Anders said they do a bit of everything. “A bit of everything, mostly floral arrangements for all events like birthdays, holidays, we do a lot of funeral work. We also sell items such as plants and gift baskets, fruit baskets as well as balloons,” she said. Anders said a big part of their business is delivering items to their customers. She said that because of the pandemic, they already had to raise the prices. Combine that with higher gas prices and Anders said it hasn’t been easy. “It was a challenge. It got to the point where we now had to question increasing our delivery prices per customer per item, especially when we deliver to Greensboro, High Point, Kernersville and even East Bend,” she said. declared. Anders also said the cost of filling a delivery van is already high. She said with these higher gas prices, things are piling up even more. “If I remember correctly, one of the drivers delivered it the other day and it was maybe $80 to $95. Sometimes $100 depending on how far they have to go. And then you add in nature these gas prices. Yeah. It’s kind of hard for the manager to have to keep this all going,” she said. But the silver lining in all of this, she said, has been the customers, who have remained loyal, are considerate and have been very understanding “We have a lot of long time loyal customers who are very entertaining that we can just talk to and cut to on a daily basis whenever we get their orders and lots of between them have been very loyal and fully understand how the pandemic has increased our price,” she said.

The age-old art of ikebana combines flowers and other materials in arrangements that express a relationship with the surrounding space and aesthetic elements such as the seasons. The art form, which ranges in styles from modern to traditional, enjoys popularity in Japan and abroad.

Find the perfect balance

Japanese flower arrangement, known as ikebana or kado (the way of the flower), became a distinctive art form in the late 15th century. Today there is an array of styles and variations, both modern and traditional. Ikebana is distinguished from other forms of floral arrangement by the positioning of flowers, stems and other plant matter in relation to the container and surrounding space. Ikebana arrangements can be large, complex displays combining several elements, or small, simple affairs, depending on the style of the room.

Ikebana is a popular pastime, and works can be found in formal settings like banquet halls, traditional inns, and corporate meeting rooms, as well as public spaces like department stores and offices. municipal.

The ikebana emphasizes the harmony between the different elements which, along with seasonal plants and flowers, can also include dried branches, stones and even moss, meticulously arranged in a ceramic container, glass , wood, bamboo or metal. Traditional craftsmanship expresses beauty through subtle detail, with components reduced to their most basic forms.

Early beginnings

Ikebana developed during the Muromachi period (1333-1568) and is thought to have its roots in Buddhist flower offerings, a custom that dates back to the 6th century in Japan. Early arrangements were used to decorate tokonomean ornamental alcove characteristic of the residences of aristocrats built in the shōin-zukuri style of architecture.

Tea master Sen no Rikyū (1522-1591) raised sadothe Japanese tea ceremony, into a refined art form by the end of the 16th century, giving rise to the related art of chabana (tea flowers). He saw the expression of nature as essential to sado and pointed out that the flowers should be arranged to appear “as they do in a field”. Chabana adorning the alcove of a teahouse are usually austere pieces arranged to reflect the season or the taste of the guests, and their development had a great influence on ikebana.

Ikebana flowers

A proliferation of floral masters around the mid-17th century helped establish ikebana as a distinct art form. Ikenobō, the oldest and predominant school of flower arranging, was created by Ikenobō Senkei, a priest of the Muromachi period who practiced under the patronage of the aristocratic class. His disciple Sen’ō developed the art, insisting that flowers should not be admired for their beauty alone, but that arrangements should include symbolic elements, such as a withered stem or twisted branch, which represent the greatness of nature. Author Kawabata Yasunari referred to this aesthetic in “Japan, the Beautiful, and Myself,” his acceptance speech for the 1968 Nobel Prize in Literature.

A number of distinct styles have developed over the centuries. These include the original Rikka styling and shōka, using one to three types of floral materials, which first became popular in the Edo period (1603–1868). Other common styles today include heika (vase flowers) characterized by wide arrangements in narrow vases, and moribana (stacked flowers) in wide, flat follow containers. Stones, moss and even metal can be incorporated for effect.

Ikebana emphasizes etiquette and manners, with the central aim being to respect the life of the flowers and to enhance the spirituality of the person who arranges them. Mastering a style takes considerable training and practice, and most people spend years learning from qualified teachers.

Dominant styles

The main schools of ikebana are Ikenobō, Sōgetsu and Ohara. Compared to the 550-year-old Ikenobō, the other two schools are decidedly modern creations, having existed for about a century. Sōgetsu was founded in 1927 by Teshigahara Sōfū and is characterized by respect for individual expression rather than adherence to established styles. Ohara was founded at the end of the 19th century by Ohara Unshin and is distinguished by the moribana style.

Ikebana classes are available in most communities in Japan, and many schools have overseas chapters as well. As people progress through their studies, they obtain different levels of certification and, over time, can even become fully accredited teachers.

Florist Maurice Harris seeks to grow in beauty, with accessibility – WWD https://bloomonlineindia.com/florist-maurice-harris-seeks-to-grow-in-beauty-with-accessibility-wwd/ Tue, 25 Jan 2022 16:34:37 +0000 https://bloomonlineindia.com/florist-maurice-harris-seeks-to-grow-in-beauty-with-accessibility-wwd/ Beauty is on the mind of Maurice Harris, founder of Bloom & Plume, the luxury floral studio located in Los Angeles’ Echo Park.

Beauty is on the mind of Maurice Harris, founder of Bloom & Plume, the luxury floral studio located in Los Angeles’ Echo Park. The florist counts Beyoncé and fashion houses like Louis Vuitton among its customers.

“I want to keep growing, from beauty to fragrance to home to home fragrances,” Harris told WWD of upcoming plans. “Soaps, lotions and potions.”

Expanding — and what it would look like — has been on his mind lately, he revealed at Diptyque’s cocktail party, held on the rooftop of the Proper Hotel in Santa Monica, Calif., to wear a toast to Harris’ “Eau Rose” partnership with the French perfumery.

“It was a great experience for me to see how people would engage with the fragrances,” he said of the collaboration.

Inspired by the rose, the limited-edition collection features a $150 eau de toilette and a $190 eau de parfum created with unexpected notes, which are reimagined and deconstructed with four candles – “Chamomile”, “Artichoke”, “ Lychee” and “Roses,” at $76 each.

By creating a bouquet, you are “rebuilding [the scent] when you burn the candles,” Harris said. “I just thought it was so romantic, so poetic and beautiful.”

With Diptyque, he is able to reach a global audience. And while it remains in the world of luxury, it’s a category that has new meaning amid COVID-19, he said: “Home being such a focal point right now with the pandemic, our luxuries that we focus on are more spatial.

Her striking floral arrangements start at around $350, but Harris also runs another business: Bloom & Plume Cafe in historic Filipinotown, which brings her brand to life in a physical space while providing accessibility.

“Coming to our cafe and having a $5 coffee in one of our beautiful mugs, surrounded by all of our beautiful flowers and plants and stuff, it’s so much more accessible,” Harris said. “One of the reasons I got into the cafe space – coffee originated in Africa, but cafes are mostly white male dominated spaces that look like a boring Scandinavian area.”

He sees parallels in the beauty industry.

“We’re so obsessed with the health and wellness space, and things always come from people of color, whether it’s Indian culture, African culture, Asian cultures, Latin cultures, but generally the face that presents it for Americans to digest is still white people,” Harris said. “And it’s still a white woman.”

He added: “Fundamentally, my goal is to be free, to be able to express myself creatively in a way where other people, everyone, can also be inspired.”

Meet Maria Dobrovolskiy, entrepreneur and CEO of Le Boutique Royal, a luxury florist serving Miami, Broward and Palm Beach County. Raised in New York, Maria owned a hugely popular food chain in New York before moving to Miami nearly a decade ago and owning several other successful businesses along the way. However, hHer heart has always been for fashion and flowers, so in 2016 she decided to pursue her passion and open a luxury florist.

La Boutique Royal is not just a simple flower shop, the company takes floral arrangements to the next level. Maria’s vision was to create luxury arrangements presented in designer hat boxes and unique displays to meet every customer’s wants and needs. The company has been hugely successful, having provided arrangements for the Setai, Four Seasons, Kiki on the River and Seaspice, to name a few. They also worked with celebrity clients such as Kim Kardashian, Enrique Iglesias, 50 Cent and Haute Living magazine.

Recently, Maria spoke with Haute Living of La Boutique Royal about her love of flowers and why you should absolutely use flowers for your next event.

Haute Living: Why did you create La Boutique Royal?

Maria Dobrovolsky: Miami is all about luxury and after living here for a while I quickly realized Miami was lacking in truly exceptional flower arrangements and good personal customer service. I wanted to bring a unique style of flowers that would become one of the most sought after and popular gifts. I always say “La Boutique Royal is the Chanel of flowers – chic, elegant and absolutely top quality.”

HL: Do you feel that a flower sends a message better than a word?

MARYLAND: Absoutely. Each Le Boutique Royal arrangement is a reflection of deep feelings and emotions, embodying a special message in itself. Our professional florists always aim to exceed your expectations. Whether you’re looking for a more creative “thank you” or a sweet “I love you”, we always deliver an everlasting impression.

HL: How is the Le Boutique Royal brand unique?

Since we import our own flowers from Holland, Colombia, Ecuador, we always have a very large and super fresh variety to choose from. We also offer same day delivery for all our arrangements.

HL: Do you feel that the appreciation of flowers has diminished in recent years?

In fact, I have the impression that flowers are more and more appreciated. Especially with the recent changes brought about by the pandemic, many people haven’t been able to see family and friends and celebrate birthdays and holidays together for a long time, so sending flowers was a great way to tell your loved ones how much point you care.

HL: What is your best memory of the company?

MARYLAND: Our first Valentine’s Day. We had so many orders that a whole team worked non-stop for 5 days. The support, hard work and dedication of the team was truly special. It taught me that your company is only as strong as your team and that day I realized that I really had the best.

HL: What are the three best things about being a florist?

MD: Being part of something special

We love hearing our customers’ stories and being part of special memories for them. It’s a privilege to be able to meet so many people and create something special for each of them.

Express creativity

Flower arranging is truly our passion and our creative outlet. Our master florists have spent years perfecting their craft and making a name for themselves in the industry. Indeed, our bouquets are original, unique and stand out from the traditional. We love to offer different bouquet designs and experiment with everything from flower and color combinations to the shape of the bouquets. Even figuring out the names of our bouquets is fun!

To be surrounded by what you love

This one goes without saying (but I’m going to talk about it anyway), being surrounded by beautiful fresh flowers every day is wonderful. Your surroundings really have an effect on how you feel, and it’s hard not to feel super happy working in a place that’s filled with something that’s not only nice to look at but actually gives you joy.

Rice Village florist says flowers are her way of giving back to Houston after cancer https://bloomonlineindia.com/rice-village-florist-says-flowers-are-her-way-of-giving-back-to-houston-after-cancer/ Tue, 30 Nov 2021 15:06:05 +0000 https://bloomonlineindia.com/rice-village-florist-says-flowers-are-her-way-of-giving-back-to-houston-after-cancer/ Folk rock plays as Thalia Jaguande, clad in a linen apron, artfully mixes soft lilac pinks with bumps of raspberry blossoms, tying a dramatically oblong vase into a shiny ribbon repeatedly embossed, “Let It Bloom” .

Folk rock plays as Thalia Jaguande, clad in a linen apron, artfully mixes soft lilac pinks with bumps of raspberry blossoms, tying a dramatically oblong vase into a shiny ribbon repeatedly embossed, “Let It Bloom” .

Opening the door to her new Rice Village flower shop, Isidora, Jaguande loads vibrant arrangements into her pink delivery van with letters that promise “Flower Vibes” inside.

For Jaguande, Isidora is a way of “giving back with flowers all the good things I have received in town”.

Jaguande first visited Houston at the age of 22, arriving from her home in Lima, Peru, to visit the MD Anderson Cancer Center after an alarming diagnosis of primary mediastinal lymphoma.

Settling in Houston for an aggressive treatment plan – each round of chemotherapy meant five nights in the hospital – Jaguande, homesick for friends and family in his coastal hometown, was surprised at how quickly Houston grew up on it.

She noticed how warm Houstonians were, she said.

“I didn’t have hair on any part of my body and people didn’t even pay attention to it,” she recalls. “I never felt uncomfortable. Everyone was ready to help me and it felt right at home.

She found Houstonians to be friendly and welcoming, she recalls. “It’s such a diverse city, you learn a lot from other people from other cultures. “

After her chemotherapy was successful, Jaguande returned home to Lima, traveling regularly to Houston for check-ups until her MDACC team declared her cancer in remission.

Free to focus on his future again, Jaguande began to explore MBA programs. The University of Houston’s Bauer College of Business quickly topped its list.

“I wanted to spend more time with the city and live in the city with me in good health,” says Jaguande, 30.

Focusing on marketing, Jaguande graduated with the goal of starting his own business. With an eye for design and the arts, the idea of ​​a floral business began to form.

Whenever she offers or receives flowers, Jaguande says she saw a void in the market for a style that resonated with her personally.

The pandemic gave time to explore floral design. Living in San Francisco, where she has family, Jaguande has spent days scouring the San Francisco flower market for inspiration and studying the evolution of selection.

She signed up for Skype classes to learn from a Brazilian florist she admires and began to perfect her art of arranging.

Using color theory and an arrangement based on opposing colors, Jaguande’s style is distinctive. She describes it as a “free garden style”, rich in greenery and striking with a palette of its own.

Deep violets contrast with chartreuse. Sweet lavender and pale yellow roses blend with sienna orange tulips.

The effect is consistent, and her customers tell her they’ve never seen the grape varieties she uses.

On her website – as colorful as her store – shoppers can shop by shade, choosing “Pink Fever”, “Vanilla Linen” and “Enchanted Pastels” or, instead, by style.

Who wouldn’t want a delivery from “Sunshine Feels”?

“I love that my arrangements make it look like they were in nature,” says Jaguande, who says she gives flowers freedom and space inside their containers.

“I like to feel the flowers have movement,” she says.

Jaguande sources flowers locally, with the exception of some from South America.

She gravitates towards the gigantic garden roses for their sturdiness, she says, arranging them according to the key. She also uses bellflowers, peonies and lisianthus.

Jaguande, who lives in Montrose, says she finds inspiration at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. Her location in Rice Village helps her meet new people every day.

“People are walking around in this area, and you don’t see that much in Houston,” she says.

“You have the big brands but also the family businesses that have always existed,” she says, referring to “cozy” cafes like Croissant Brioche.

“I find it very authentic and very unique.

Owners of neighboring businesses visit it regularly, she says, which gives the mall a small town feel.

Near the shelves of floral arrangements, plants and succulents, Isidora offers Peruvian chocolate, poppy seed folded soaps, bath salts, an instant champagne cocktail kit, baby diapers, petal-based lollipops. of daisy and other natural products that entice the customer to participate in daily luxuries.

Jaguande worked with a Texas company to develop an exclusive line of spark plugs. Scents include Spiritual Lavender, Homey Vanilla, and Woody Blossom. Others have names such as Breathe and Flow – Jaguande is an avid practitioner of yoga.

Jaguande is building a company around comfort and the pleasure of daily living.

Isidora translates to “gift from the goddesses,” an apt trade name, she says, for someone whose outlook has changed dramatically after being diagnosed with cancer at a young age.

“Every time you give flowers, you give life. Life is a gift from the gods, and today is a gift, ”she said. “It’s a celebration of life every day, that’s what cancer made me open my eyes to, every day you have to appreciate.”

Character-wise, “He’s very careful to treat customers well, to be polite, to not make mistakes,” Gladwin said. “Because in the field of flowers we have a wide range of products, [such as] inauguration wreaths and stands. Imagine if a customer has a grand opening of their new store, and we mix that up and send a wreath to their store… that will be a huge deal for us!

Such an incident took place once, though Gladwin is quick to note that was before his time. Apparently the delivery driver had some floral arrangements in his van and accidentally delivered the wrong arrangement to the wrong place, which understandably upset the customer. “[The customer] called our company several times, [asking] talk to my grandfather. There was a lot of explaining to do. But we had to deal with it because it was our fault.

In the pre-pandemic era, Gladwin accompanied his father and grandfather to China, where they met with suppliers, as well as meals with their customers and industry peers. He describes the overall experience as an “eye-opener” and says the learning curve is still steep.

“How they react to questions put to them, how they talk to suppliers, how they negotiate for better prices, how they ask for longer credit terms, or even how they react to questions from customers, because sometimes customers can be quite demanding. I learned from my grandfather and my father how to react to all these difficult situations.

HOLT – Liz Carter took a part-time job at a Colorado flower shop, hoping to meet new people, and instead fell in love with the flower business.

Fast forward more than a decade and Carter, 42, now with extensive experience in working with flowers and owner of her own boutique, built a business around the design and sale of bouquets of flowers that will always be in bloom and never out of season.

Liz Carter of Unwilted in Holt has one of her paper flowers bloated with isopropyl alcohol on Thursday, November 11, 2021 at her workspace in Holt. Each flower is made from Italian crepe paper and handcrafted from Carter’s original designs.

Unwilted, the online business she founded in early 2019 from her home in Holt, offers floral bouquets and designs she designs from Italian crepe paper.

The delicate flowers are created from 100 pieces of foldable crepe paper in the shape of petals, buds and leaves. The bouquets that Carter arranges and assembles by hand are colorful, lifelike, and made to last longer than the real ones.

The crepe paper flower arrangements helped Carter rediscover a love for flowers she thought she had lost when she returned to Michigan in 2016.

It started as a hobby, something she tried after seeing examples of arrangements posted on Instagram.

Today, Unwilted is a successful and growing company. Carter, a graduate of Holt High School, ships her designs to customers throughout the United States and around the world.

This month, the company moved from Carter’s basement and garage to a 3,130 square foot suite near Delhi Commerce Drive.

“This new space will give me the space and the freedom to really open up more options, more availability, for the different types of products that we have,” Carter said.

An art form

To work with flowers is to be kind of an artist, Carter said.

Bouquets are emotional, meaningful, beautiful, Carter said, and organizing them takes creativity, as well as the ability to take what you have on hand and create something that fits a client’s needs.

“I think it’s such an interesting job because you are constantly working with seasonality,” she said of traditional flower arrangement. “Not only are you sending something that represents an emotion, but you are mostly working with what you already have in the cooler.”

In Colorado, Carter went from working in a flower shop to part-store owner for seven years.

After years of working long hours and weekends, she returned to Holt five years ago exhausted and convinced she was done with the flowers.

I have to make a big change, Carter thought.

She met her husband Alex, moved to a new home, and then came across some examples of crepe paper flower designs.

“It was an old-fashioned art form, like crochet or knitting,” she said.

Carter began to dabble in making his own and realized that with crepe paper, flower designers aren’t limited by a season. For example, they can use peonies or tulips at any time of the year, and their arrangements will last longer than a week.

“I was like, ‘Oh my God, there is so much potential here,’” Carter said.

His business started small and grew in popularity. Then it attracted investors.

Carter went from designing and making each flower itself – each taking him between 30 minutes to an hour to complete – to developing individual prototypes and workbooks for making each variety, and then developing it. outsourcing of flower production.

The finished parts are shipped to Carter, who assembles the arrangements herself before shipping them to customers.

How close are they to fresh flowers?

“You can use some weights of this paper differently so that some of the petals are really, really airy, and some are a little more dense, and at the end of the day you put everything in a bunch together,” Carter said. “You end up having this realistic arrangement because you have all of these textures.”

Unfaded creations price range from $ 29 to $ 385, depending on the size of the arrangement.

“They’re full, they’re beautiful,” Carter said. “They’re at peak stage, so what you send out, what you see online, is what you’re going to get.”

She realized she had to move the business out of her home and garage this spring as she filled nearly 500 orders for Mother’s Day.

“It was crazy,” Carter said. “I was also seven months pregnant.”

His daughter Hazel is now five months old. Unwilted’s new workspace is a welcome next step, Carter said.

More space for the crepe paper flowers and more room to put together arrangements will mean more business, she said.

“I can take more orders and hire people,” Carter said. “I’m so excited because for me it’s super creative. I can just play with flowers all day.”
