Crystal City Florist's Business Blooms Around Valentine's Day - ARL nowTuesday, February 27, 2018
Much of their business comes from party work for the businesses and hotels in Crystal City.Flowers With Love is one of only a few florists in Arlington, according to Hossini, but having competition from elsewhere in the county is actually a good thing around Valentine’s Day, when there are sometimes just too many orders to fill at the last minute for one store.“We can only do so much, and everyone wants flowers,” said Hossini.
Sang, Cuffe rule Bridge of FlowersTuesday, August 14, 2018
Teague O’Connor of Burlington, Vt. (26:10). Shelburne Falls’ Dan Smith was the top local runner across the Iron Bridge, finishing ninth in 27:21.Cuffe and Leibold moved to Massachusetts just two weeks ago, as Leibold began medical school at UMass in Worcester last week. Cuffe said the pair was looking for something to do over the weekend, and discovered the event. Leibold said it was a nice escape from a chaotic first week of school.“We’re kind of aficionados of old races so when we saw this one, it was a no-brainer,” Cuffe explained.While she mostly competes in shorter races, Cuffe, who was 22nd overall in the field, felt right at home on the 8K course. She said she raced against Rees in a 5K last year, and knew the Bridge of Flowers defending champion was the one to watch when the opening gun went off.“I figured she knew what she was doing,” Cuffe said of keeping Rees in her sights.Semehar Tesfaye of West Roxbury, the 2016 champion, finished third in the women’s race with a time of 30:18. Karen Bertasso of Albany, N.Y. was fourth in 30:31, and Mohawk Trail star and Plainfield resident Meghan Davis was the fifth-fastest woman across the tape in 30:55.The weather cooperated for the 3K Charity Race and 8K Classic, as rain held off and the overcast morning made for comfortable, mid-August temperatures. The traditional charm of the race was evident throughout the course, with bagpipers, drummers and fans lining the streets and trails of Shelburne Falls to the delight of the over 800 runners combined between the two fields.“I love the history of Massachusetts races,” explained Leibold. “Old, long-standing races like this one, the community can get behind it and come out and support every year no matter who is running. That’s the great thing about it, it’s really an event that gets people coming back every year.”Locals ruled the Steve Lewis Subaru Charity 3K Run and Walk, with Buckland’s Bryan Dole finishing first overall in 10:24. Jacob Hughes of Shelburne Falls was the runner-up in 10:31, while Toby Hughes was fifth overall in 11:40. Amherst’s Cortney Berling was the first woman across, as she was third overall in 10:54. Leyden’s Kate Ashley was next in fourth place as the second woman across in 11:34.In the 8K Classic, Greenfield’s Aaron Stone was the top area finisher behind Smith as he crossed 31st overall in 30:10. Shelburne’s John Herron finished 36th (30:33), with Davis’ showing making her the top area woman and fourth-fastest Franklin County finisher overall. Shelburne Falls’ Jeremiah Jones was 40th in 31:01, and Shutesbury’s Andy Reagan joined him in the top 50 thanks to a 49th place performance in 32:09. https://www.recorder.com/Bridge-of-Flowers-19415790

He also hopes to eventually open a store at the farm.To read the 435 story, visit 435mag.com. http://www.tonganoxiemirror.com/news/2018/jul/11/agribusiness-accolades-grinter-farms-featured-coun/

Nine Secrets To Petal It Forward SuccessTuesday, June 05, 2018
Petal It Forward was an opportunity to randomly make some strangers' day by sharing a simple act of kindness," said Jennifer Eaton of Copper Penny Flowers in Concord, Massachusetts, who was a first-time participant in 2017. "By handing out two roses to each stranger on the street, we were then asking them to hand out the second rose and make someone else's day," Eaton said. Two-time participant Valerie Lee Ow of J. Miller Flowers and Gifts in Oakland, California, enjoyed a similar benefit after giving away 400 mixed bouquets. "Their smiles made it all worthwhile and created happiness everywhere we went," Ow said. "The happiness and joy level was really off the charts, even much more than I had anticipated. It was not only fun for everyone to create and design, but to share in the outcome with the receiver, which few people really get to see on a consistent basis, except for our delivery drivers." Ow's helpers had such a good time last year, they all want to join the fun again this year. The shop was the first to sign up for the 2018 nationwide effort: safnow.org/piflist. While witnessing the joy of giving was one of the best parts of Petal It Forward, Copper Penny also received a "shout out" and a photo on the town's Facebook timeline. For Ow, the hugs and thank yous led to at least one sale she could trace. "Someone even placed an order the next day," she said. And who knows how many future sales were generated by press coverage and photos in her local newspaper, a regional chain of eight papers and an online publication. Another article on her event in the East Bay Times cited the Society of American Florists' research that shows the positive benefits of giving flowers. For Steph Cook and Carla Fussell of Cullman Florist in Cullman, Alabama, their first Petal It Forward in 2017 was an opportunity to connect with... http://www.perishablenews.com/index.php?article=0068394
