Venues include the British Museum, Claridges, The Berkeley, The Connaught, Coworth Park, Hampton Court Palace, Kensington Palace, The Langham Hotel, The National Gallery, The Natural History Museum, Somerset House, St Paul’s Cathedral, Tower of London, The V&A, The Wallace Collection, Westminster Abbey and Windsor Castle. They also create flowers on behalf of 60-100 discerning brides every year. 2017 has been the busiest year yet, with a huge influx of high profile weddings and outdoor events throughout the summer season. 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!”...

Larkspur flower shop focuses on local, sustainable arrangements - Marin Independent JournalTuesday, September 24, 2019
A native of Tokyo, Morlock had worked in the hospitality industry in Southeast Asia before immigrating to America and embarking upon her childhood dream of working as a florist when she was trained as wedding designer in 2011.“Because I was trained as a wedding designer, my aesthetic is a garden-style design that uses lots of greens with airy and beautiful seasonal blooms,” she explains. “I like to see movement and texture, and I try to not pack my flowers too tight.”Daily, she maintains local restaurant accounts, makes arrangements to deliver or for walk-in customers, and fulfills online floral orders.“We occasionally have weddings, birthdays parties and showers on the weekends,” she says. “I’m also writing proposals for weddings in 2020.Almost 95 percent of her blooms and fillers are sustainable and grown in California or on the West Coast, although she does purchase some from Japan or Holland if customers request them.Photo by Aimi DuongThe Little Flower Shop, a newcomer to Magnolia Avenue in Larkspur, opened in May.Besides receiving flowers from local farms, she also travels to the San Francisco Flower Mart three times a week to pick the freshest flowers and always looks for unusual blooms.Right now, her shop is stocked with garden roses, dahlias, zinnias, marigolds, strawflowers, lisianthus, amaranth, cedar, palms and dried plants and products, including special Japanese floral shears.She does not stock floral foam or flower food, however.“We do not use floral forms because they are toxic and not biodegradable,” she ... https://www.marinij.com/2019/09/13/larkspur-flower-shop-focuses-on-local-sustainable-arrangements/
Spring Park Woman Operates Organic Flower Shop from Her Home - Lake Minnetonka MagazineTuesday, September 24, 2019
Susan Snegosky says. “But cosmos are beautiful and abundant in September, and Queen Anne’s lace is wonderful, too.” Snegosky owns Fiddles and Fronds, an organic florist business that she operates from her Spring Park home. As summer fades, she continues to find flowers that inspire her. And her inspirations don’t necessarily stop with flowers.“Basil is really wonderful in summer and fall arrangements,” she says. “The fragrance adds something special. I really like to use basil, and people comment on it a lot.”Fiddles and Fronds has been in business for about two years. Snegosky grew up on a farm and worked in a flower shop when she was in college. When she was laid off from her office job, and after years of being asked by friends and family to do flowers for parties and events, she decided that she’d try her hand at creating a business from her passion for flowers.From the beginning, she knew that it was important to her the flowers she used were organically grown and locally sourced. She has a cutting garden in her backyard where she gets some of her cuttings and, when she isn’t just walking out the back door to find her flowers, she also uses a few loca... https://lakeminnetonkamag.com/spring-park-woman-operates-organic-flower-shop-her-home
Florist is the unisex underground bag label you've been seeing all over Instagram - Fashion JournalTuesday, September 24, 2019
I’m-doing moment and then find yourself in New York City with your own company. But Melbourne-born George Banks has done all that, creating his accessories label Florist in just a couple of years.By doing what most people only ever wish they could – ditch your uni course and move to Manhattan – George is pulling off a version of what I call, The Carrie Bradsure. By lasting not so long at uni and redirecting his passion, George is starting to take up space in the fashion world. He is an advocate for following your instincts. “There is this movement of avant garden fashion that I have noticed in New York as young designers follow on from their final collections and start their own label,” he says, explaining his move. “They continue on their own trajectory, they don’t go and work for someone or work in production, they just go for it. I think the Internet has allowed that space to move forward.”He makes doing New York in your twenties seem worth it. But it wasn’t without its grunt work.“I use a Singer chain stitch machine from the 1930s for the embroidery, that’s what they used to use for varsity jackets. I used to stay after hours at my old job and practise on it, but I would spend two days on one design and then sell it for $200 US dollars because I had a full-time job.”With a business model that relied on a single person hand-cutting patterns in his spare time, sewing leather bags from scratch and then embroidering designs over the top was not sustainable for the return George was getting on them. He had to switch it up. “I had to stop because I couldn’t afford to sell a bag for $200 when I spent two days on it. So all I did was the lettering and waited until people enjoyed it.”And they did. By Christmas last year the orders came flooding in, and the stream of customers haven’t stopped. The embroidery is eye-catc... https://fashionjournal.com.au/fashion/florist-unisex-underground-bag-label-youve-seeing-instagram/
