By JOYCE M. ROSENBERG, AP Business WriterNEW YORK (AP) – When heavy rain pelted Central America, Shane Pliska couldn't get shipments of taupe-colored roses he needed for clients' weddings."Of course, this was the season when everyone wanted champagne- and gold-themed weddings, and the champagne part was all taupe roses," says Pliska, owner of Planterra, a commercial florist and owner of a wedding venue where the decor is all about flowers and plants.Pliska, whose company is located in West Bloomfield, Michigan, could have substituted other flowers but wanted to deliver customers' first choices. So he and his employees tinted white roses by hand.Supply shortages can be the bane of a small company's existence. Severe weather and disasters can cause shortages, as can a manufacturer shutting down or stopping production of ingredients, components or raw materials. And shortages can force owners to be creative in finding substitutes or workarounds to mitigate damage to revenue and customer relationships.Shortages can hit companies ...

Fake flowers used to be considered tacky. Not anymore. - Washington PostTuesday, May 01, 2018
Bronx who was once a stylist for Martha Stewart. She has written two how-two books on paper flowers and sells her wares at high-end shops such as John Derian in New York and on her website, the Green Vase (thegreenvase.com). Her blooms start at $35 each. “People like the fact that paper flowers stay around for a while,” Cetti says. “My objective isn’t to be as realistic as possible; it’s to find the character and feeling of each flower and interpret that.”Pottery BarnPottery Barn’s Garden Botanicals category includes such faux plants as hydrangeas, tulips, succulents, topiaries and small trees.Pottery BarnIn her office, Monica Bhargava, Pottery Barn’s executive vice president of design, combined real and faux orchids to give an arrangement a lush, fuller appearance.Design bloggers, who are always photographing their own spaces and looking for ways to add color and interest, have hastened the flowering of faux. “I don’t have the money for fresh flowers in every corner,” says blogger Emily A. Clark. “This gives the look and feel of it. I have five kids to water and feed. I don’t need anything with more maintenance right now.” Incorporating faux flowers hasn’t stirred her readers. “I hardly have anyone call me out on it,” she says. “Some people are still against it, but I’m over it.”[Expert tips for throwing a dinner party your guests won’t forget]“People want to have the fresh-flower look in their home,” says Donna Garlough, style director for Joss & Main. “These let them get the look without the expense or the maintenance.” Garlough says that although single branches and sprigs are still popular, Joss & Main is seeing increased interested in prearranged centerpieces, which can cost from $50 to $150. “There’s a lot of cool stuff out there — from faux tulips in Mason jars to faux succulents in sculptural organic vessels,” she says. Garlough says arrangements are popular for second homes. “Who wants to arrive at a vacation home and be greeted by dead flowers?” she says.Carmel BrantleyDesigner Erin Paige Pitts uses faux hydrangeas in her Florida beach house.Emily A. ClarkA faux orchid Instagrammed by Emily A. Clark. She got it from the French Bee at One Kings Lane.Designer Erin Paige Pitts of Gibson Island, Md., and Delray Beach, Fla., can relate. “The quality of faux flowers has come a long way,” Pitts says. “The flowers on my dining table in Delray are faux, but no one thinks they are, they look so good. It’s nice to get to my house there and have the feeling of flowers even when I haven’t been there in weeks.”Although there’s no watering, artificial flowers need care. Garlough says that when you unwrap them, “they need a bit of zhuzhing, but so do real flowers.” So move them around a bit and fluff out the branches if needed. To keep silk or synthetic arrangements dust-free, you can clean gently with a soft, dry cloth or use the small brush attachment of your vacuum. Cetti advises keeping paper flowers out of direct sun and high-humidity areas. A blow-dryer can be used to get the dust off.More from Lifestyle:That old fussy china can fit your casual lifestyle.
