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!”...

Florist Can't Use Immigration Status to Avoid Paying Overtime - Bloomberg LawTuesday, October 22, 2019
A New York florist can’t get out of a settlement agreement that resolved a former employee’s overtime case just because the employee is an unauthorized immigrant, a federal district court ruled.Mrs. Bloom’s Direct Inc. refused to pay any of the $25,000 it agreed to pay Monica Saavedra in December 2017. Doing so would condone a violation of the Immigration Reform and Control Act, the company argued.That law bans employers from knowingly hiring unauthorized immigrants and makes it illegal for such immigrants to use fake documents to gain employment.

Fall Home Show: A bouquet workshop with a local twist - Vancouver SunTuesday, October 22, 2019
Blossom & Vine, who will offer a bouquet workshop at the Vancouver Fall Home Show. Learn how to create a beautiful bouquet at a workshop led by florist Michelle Hodgson. If florist Michelle Hodgson has her way, consumers will soon start incorporating the concept of “buying local” into their bouquets.“We have one of the largest growing markets in the world—it runs 12 months out of the year, with growers on Vancouver Island, in the Fraser Valley, in Pemberton,” says the owner of Blossom & Vine, who will offer a bouquet workshop at the Vancouver Fall Home Show. “We have the biggest Dutch-style flower auction in the world, outside of Holland.”She rattles off a long list of items grown locally: chrysanthemums, dahlias, zinnias, roses, salal, boxwood, strawflower and all manner of grasses, foliage and textural components. In addition to supporting growers and businesses, Hodgson says, customers might benefit from buying locally because they could access fresher, more unusual products. Café au lait dahlias, for instance, only have a three- to five-day shelf life and don’t travel well; it makes the most sense to only offer them locally.In her workshop, Hodgson will show attendees how to make bouquets using only locally grown elements. She takes a very modern approach, usi... https://vancouversun.com/homes/westcoast-homes-and-design/lifestyle/fall-home-show-a-bouquet-workshop-with-a-local-twist
The return of the ‘90s flower: meet the florist putting gerberas in the spotlight again - Vogue AustraliaTuesday, October 22, 2019
Now, it seems our love for nostalgia has made it all the way to the flowers we want in our homes. “Flowers used in floristry can be considered like any other artistic practice — art, fashion, and music — there is always room to look back at history and take it forward to contemporise past ideas,” says Hattie Molloy, a Melbourne-based florist making waves for her unconventional use of traditionally dated flowers. Focusing on colour and shape, Molloy’s arrangements are less about quantity and more about telling a story and conveying a feeling. Works of art, but for the everyday. Image credit: Lucas Dawson Photography“I would consider carnations and gerberas to be making a real comeback,” she says. “Gerberas have recently been a huge component in my work, as I was inspired by a new colour variety. I enjoy the challenge of using any flower that inspires me, even the ‘90s gerbera, a flower some might consider an uninspiring flower from the supermarket, can be given a second life on a contemporary platform.”It’s a bold statement, and one some florists would balk at. Known for their plastic-wrapped, often cartoonish-like flower, the gerbera is one plant most contemporary arrangers would steer clear of. But, as Molloy’s healthy Instagram following and sold out workshops will attest, it’s clearly got an audience. ... https://www.vogue.com.au/vogue-living/arts/the-return-of-the-90s-flower-meet-the-florist-putting-gerberas-in-the-spotlight-again/image-gallery/1d35b8d987fd13a085877bcb856fcdb4
