Meet the Makers Behind Kendall Jenner's Unconventional Floral Headpiece - Vogue.comWednesday, March 14, 2018
The flower crown, in recent years, has gone from unconventional to ubiquitous—less free-spirited wild child, and more “every single girl” at Coachella. But London florist Rebel Rebel is making the flower crown unusual again, as they proved with a creation for Vogue’s April Issue cover star Kendall Jenner.“Crown,” perhaps, doesn’t do the structure justice. It’s an extravagant floral headpiece, overflowing with Gypsophila (better known as baby’s breath) shaped delicately around Jenner’s face. “I call it a lion’s mane,” says Phil Perry, one of the Rebel Rebel florists who made it.Rebel Rebel, who count Dior, Stella McCartney, and Swarovski among their clients, was founded in 2000 by Athena Duncan and Mairead Curtin. Their avant-garde and bold designs made them the poster children for London’s ongoing floral revolution, which saw an explosion in radical creativity and surrealism. While other florists fiddled away at crowns, Rebel Rebel perfected their floral diadems and mohawks. “I was quite bored with what was coming out,” Perry says of their experimental visions. “Flower crowns are so beautiful and so wrapped up in culture. It’s a shame for it to...

Labor of love: How do florists get ready for their big day? - Lexington Herald LeaderWednesday, March 14, 2018
Dozens of truckloads of flowers will hit Lexington streets on Wednesday, but for local florists, the preparations have been ongoing for months.Starting Monday, Ashland Florist on East Main Street received over three hundred orders for flowers, said Jane Willoughby, who owns the shop with her sister. On Valentine’s Day itself, the shop usually delivers five times the normal amount of orders.Some customer’s aren’t quiet sure what to send their loved ones at first, but many go with a tried and true staple of the holiday.“We usually start out asking what the recipient’s favorite flower is, what their favorite color is, but usually on Valentine’s it’s the red rose,” Willoughby said.At Ashland Florist, preparations start a year in advance with evaluations of what flowers sold well, and the shop starts ordering before Christmas, Willoughby said. Along with the rose, stargazer lilies and carnations are popular choices this year.While delivery orders are certainly elevated on Valentine’s Day, flower shops also see many come by the store on the holiday, said Robin Michler, whose f... http://www.kentucky.com/news/local/counties/fayette-county/article199966579.html
Why yes, that is a giant flower bouquet in a Raleigh trash can; here's who's behind it - WRAL.comWednesday, March 14, 2018
N.C. Museum of Art is behind this ... well ... work of art.As I wrote last week, the museum's annual Art in Bloom event will run March 22 to March 25 and will feature more than 50 florists from around the country. Florists are randomly assigned a work of art in the museum's permanent collection and tasked with building a floral display inspired by the art.During the four days of Art in Bloom, tickets are required for admission to the permanent collection in the Museum’s West Building. East Building and the Museum Park will remain open and free to visitors. Tickets are $18. It's free for kids 6 and under. As part of Art in Bloom, the museum will offer a flower-themed scavenger hunt from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., March 24 and March 25. The drop-in event lets visitors, who have purchased tickets, follow clues on a scavenger hunt card to find flowers and "artful" treasures in the galleries.The trash can bouquet is part of the museum's effort to get the word out about the event. Eventually, five corners of downtown Raleigh will be decorated this week with these colorful floral displays. They are created by Steve Taras of Raleigh's Watered Garden Florist and are inspired by a similar effort in New York City called Flower Flashes.The public is encouraged to take photos of the displays and post to social media using hashtag #NCMAbloom and #PNCartinbloom for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the event.And be on the look out for more trash can bouquets.

Slow Flowers - Sacramento MagazineWednesday, March 14, 2018
Why one florist got behind a movement to purchase local flowers.First came the slow food movement, which promotes regional food systems and traditional cooking as an antidote to the ubiquity of fast-food chain restaurants. Now there’s the slow flowers movement, which aims to reconnect florists and consumers to regional flowers and the farmers who grow them.Sacramento florist Shannon Cosgrove-Rivas of Flourish, an adherent to the slow flowers movement, says that for years she has made a point of buying as many local blooms as possible. She says local flowers not only hold up better in bouquets because they haven’t had to travel long distances, but also that “you want your flowers to look like the season” in which they were used. “It seems simple, but it’s kind of a revolutionary idea.”In fact, Cosgrove-Rivas feels so strongly about seasonality that she planned her wedding date so that she could carry Sarah Bernhardt peonies down the aisle. “I think it’s important that our flowers have a sense o... http://www.sacmag.com/Sacramento-Magazine/March-2018/Slow-Flowers/
