Working at The RHS, Chelsea Flower Show, Aegon Championships, Royal Ascot and Wimbledon, they put the floral designs on the central stage, going above and beyond to deliver stand-out spectacles. (Lavender Green Flowers place a significant amount of emphasis on the whole picture, considering and often advising on every other element of an event that becomes important, such as lighting, furniture and even food.) From the initial brief and design process through to the creation and subsequent delivery, clients know that they can rely on Lavender Green Flowers’ highly inventive, hard-working and experienced team. As is often the case, nothing is ever out-sourced meaning installations are slick and efficient. The designers, florists and installers are all part of the Lavender Green Flowers’ family, and they therefore share the same passion and enthusiasm for the perfect execution of every job. Barnes says, “I was not interested in learning how to be a florist. I was interested in learning how to sell amazing flowers and how to create breath-taking flower displays. I have always wanted to be the very best I can possibly be at whatever I do, and so failure was not an option. It is incredible to make money out of a low margin product. You need the tenacity of a limpet, self-belief, a great team of kindred spirits and to enjoy the experience… plus an awful lot of luck!”...

Prince Charles And Camilla's Wedding Almost Canceled Due To These Unfortunate Events - Latin TimesTuesday, August 13, 2019
Date Was PostponedThe wedding was actually postponed for a day as it was originally set for April 8, but it was reset to the next day due to Pope John Paul II’s funeral in the Vatican. The royal florist, Simon Lycett, shared that the changing of the wedding date at the last minute was stressful because they have already prepared everything for the floral arrangements in the venues. “The most dramatic incident we had was when we created the flowers for the Prince of Wales wedding to the Duchess of Cornwall at Windsor Castle,” he told Hello. “We were creating the reception flowers and his holiness the Pope died so the Prince of Wales delayed the wedding by a day. We always try to have our flowers be on point for the actual day and time of the event to make sure that everything is fresh and perfect but the flowers all had to last another day.”Queen Elizabeth Didn’t Want To Be A Part Of ItQueen Elizabeth and Prince Philip didn’t attend the civil wedding ceremony of Prince Charles and Camilla because, as per reports, it was a sign that Her Majesty disapproved of the arrangements due to religious reasons. The union was going against church teachings, and she doesn’t want to be part of it.

Court again rules against florist who refused gay couple - The Spokesman-ReviewTuesday, August 13, 2019
OLYMPIA – A Richland florist did not face religious intolerance from government officials who ruled she couldn’t refuse to provide flowers for the wedding of a gay couple, the Washington Supreme Court said Thursday.In a unanimous 75-page decision, the court upheld for a second time a finding that Barronelle Stutzman of Arlene’s Flowers violated state anti-discrimination laws by refusing to provide floral arrangements for the wedding of Robert Ingersoll and Curt Freed, saying it was against her religious beliefs.The court had previously ruled against Stutzman, but a U.S. Supreme Court decision in favor of a Colorado bakery that refused to provide a cake for a same-sex wedding sent the case back to the Washington high court to determine whether government officials at some point in the process showed intolerance for the florist’s religious beliefs. That led to a new round of legal arguments and a new review of the case.“We now hold that the answer to the Supreme Court’s question is no: the adjudicatory bodie... https://www.spokesman.com/stories/2019/jun/06/court-again-rules-against-florist-who-refused-gay-/
