Flowers That Fit - Richmond magazineTuesday, June 25, 2019
I pay attention to the space and to the scale. Will there be eight people at a table or 10? That makes a difference with the centerpieces. I have been in The John Marshall Ballrooms hundreds of times. I know what to do there.
Bride: How much money should a couple expect to spend?
Hansboro: I try to work with the budget that is presented. I have developed a bespoke full-service business, so my clients receive my full-time attention. I work with flower budgets ranging from $4,000 to upwards of $50,000. For $500, I can do a bridal bouquet and not much else. For smaller weddings with budgets less than $4,000, I’ve created Pastel Posies by The Flower Guy Bron, which is a cash-and-carry package service — basically a $2,500 wedding in a box. I’m not involved personally, but clients will get my team of professionals, and the same quality design and beautiful flowers.
Bride: What are pitfalls to avoid?
Hansboro: Brides need to be true to themselves. I ask clients to come with inspiration pictures, but there’s no need to follow trends rather than your inner voice. Sometimes, I have to help a mother and daughter navigate that delicate space between the event host — the person paying for the wedding — and the bride. It can make sense for a bride to defer to her mother, but this is 2019. My couples are professional people. They should plan [the wedding] and pay for it themselves. Let the parents be gracious and contribute in a meaningful way, but they shouldn’t be footing the bill.
Bride: Is more always better?
Hansboro: That depends on your definition of “more.” “More” includes quantity, flower type and how the space is designed. I have luxury brides who don’t want luxury flowers. They want dramatic centerpieces — towers or terrariums. My personal style is lush and full and luxurious. But that’s not for everyone. Some people care more about the design rather than the flower itself. I can have a centerpiece filled with flowers, but there’s a big difference if it’s filled with hydrangeas or peonies. For me, the design has to be all about the person, their taste, and their perspective. My goal is for the couple to see the design and say, “It’s perfect! I never thought of that.” That’s why you pay me.

This is how the Easter lily became the holiday's flower - NOLA.comThursday, May 02, 2019
By 1945, there were about 1,200 growers producing bulbs up and down the Pacific coast, from Vancouver, Canada to Long Beach, California. And, believe it or not, right here in southeast Louisiana.The following information is quoted from Louisiana – A Guide to the State compiled by Workers of the Writer’s Program of the Work Projects Administration in the State of Louisiana, first printed in 1941.“Between Junior and Venice, interspersed by orange groves, are small farms devoted to a new and interesting industry – the cultivation of the Creole lily."The Creole lily (Lilium longiflorum) is generally called the Easter lily; its local name merely exemplifies the tendency of this section to apply the term ‘Creole’ to both people and things. The flower of this special stock, which is well suited to home gardens, is said to be more vigorous, prolific and resistant to disease than other varieties. Each stalk bears from 3 to 18 white blossoms, which reputedly last 4 or 5 days longer than those of the Japanese stock. More emphasis is place on the production of the bulbs for shipping than the sale of the flowers. "In the spring the blooms are nipped, allowing the bulb to retain the full nourishment of the plant juices. In midsummer the plants are dug up and the bulbs placed in a hamper protected from the sun by palmetto leaves. … the lily roots are shipped by express to northern cities, where they are kept in cold storage – 32 to 40 degrees – through the winter. In early spring florists set them out to bloom for Easter and Mother’s Day.” 32 summer-flowering bulbs to add to your garden Most summer-flowering bulbs are native to tropical and subtropical climates and will reliably bloom here for many years. These were tall growing Easter lilies grown for cut flowers, not the shorter types used for growing in containers which is more common these days.But, producing quality, consistent lily bulbs proved to be an exact and demanding science with specific climatic requirements, and bulb production diminished in Louisiana. Over the years, the total number of Easter lily bulb producers dwindled down to just ten farms in a small, isolated coastal region straddling the Oregon-California border. This region, called the Easter Lily Capital of the World, produces nearly all of the bulbs for the US blooming potted Easter li... https://www.nola.com/homegarden/2019/04/this-is-how-the-easter-lily-became-the-holidays-flower.html
Effort to end florist licensing in Louisiana nipped in the bud with Senate panel's rejection - The AdvocateTuesday, April 16, 2019
A Senate panel has rejected an attempt to do away with retail florist licensing in Louisiana – the only state that requires such occupational certification to arrange flowers.The Senate Agriculture Committee shot down House Bill 561 in a 6-1 vote on Tuesday after hearing objections from florists who said they agree with tighter regulations on their industry."Having a license is not a barrier," said Annie Taylor, a licensed florist in Scott. "To say you are a licensed florist sets you apart in the industry."She warned committee member that if the measure passed then it would denigrate the profession."You have let us down and you have demoted us," she said. "We are artists. It's not an occupation." ... https://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge/news/politics/legislature/article_4058ed8e-4d59-11e8-aced-a3f61ef63b1c.html
