How two sisters formed Laurel Floral out of a backyard - Suffolk TimesTuesday, September 24, 2019
Outside her home on Delmar Lane in Laurel, Laura Carrillo, 31, snags a red rose from a storage shed in her backyard. She brings it inside and places it in a glass vase brimming with blossoming red and pink roses. She ties a red ribbon around the bouquet and snaps a photo with her phone. About an hour later, in the home across the street, sister Christi Carrillo, 28, uploads that photo to the duo’s Instagram account, @LaurelFloralDesign. It’s just a typical day for the Carrillo sisters.In early February, the sisters registered the name of their flower catering business, Laurel Floral Design, in Suffolk County. The “shop” — which operates out of Laura’s backyard – had already catered birthday parties, weddings and baby showers prior to the registration.Instagram is where Christi receives most requests for bouquets. It’s ideal for a company hoping to cater to a younger demographic, she said.“A lot of it comes from Instagram, and a lot of people that we know, too, just from... https://suffolktimes.timesreview.com/2019/03/two-sisters-formed-laurel-floral-backyard/
Floral artisans re-create de Young Museum's works with flowers - San Francisco ChronicleWednesday, March 14, 2018
Flowers flow through Joan McLellan Tayler’s blood. She was born that way, a child of the McLellan flower empire that grew orchids on the Peninsula. As a girl attending the Katherine Delmar Burke School in Pacific Heights, McLellan Tayler would accompany her father to the San Francisco Flower Mart in the predawn hours to shop the floral vendors. At nearly 90 years old, McLellan Tayler regularly shops the Flower Mart, as she did last week while preparing her annual floral entry into the de Young Museum “Bouquet to Arts” exhibition.For the past 34 years, select florists and floral artisans have been invited to re-create pieces from the de Young’s collection of artwork — with flowers. One hundred and 20 (give or take) “exhibitors” select or are assigned one piece of artwork, including the really modern stuff like video installations, and interpret it with flora and fauna. The fragrant results remain on display throughout the museum for a single week. And then, for the most part, they die.“I got my first choice,” McLellan Tayler said of the artwork she’d chosen to re-create with flowers. She has participated in 32 of the 34 “Bouquets to Art” exhibitions, and she fully...
Flamenco Flowers Is Now Open in the Loop - Riverfront Times (blog)Tuesday, July 18, 2017
Heit knew exactly what she needed to do: She decided to buy the shop.Earlier this month, Heit reopened the small storefront as Flamenco Flowers & Sweets(6346 Delmar Boulevard, University City). Her shop is more single-minded: Gone are the dog balloons and quirky candles that previously animated Fleur de Lou. In their place: a beautifully simple space that focuses on flowers and plants, with a few prepackaged kosher chocolates to boot. Heit is a one-woman show. She greets customers at the door and personally designs all the flowers, with striking designs that seem completely at home in the brick-walled space. She's responsible for the store's lushly romantic look — and even wired the pipe-based lamps that light it. It is her baby, through and through. "I've been thinking about all of this for a long, long time," she confides.Indeed, for Heit, a native of St. Petersburg, Russia, the store is the promised answer to a long-ago dream. "I walked into a floral shop in Russia and said, 'This is exactly what I want,'" she recalls. "That was 27 years ago."click to enlarge

Botanical illustration: Putting a timely focus on nature - New Haven RegisterTuesday, September 24, 2019
Femke Speelberg, associate curator in the department of drawings and prints at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. "As a source of inspiration, the relationship between decor and nature has always been very important," she says. Today, as we lose biodiversity, botanical drawing is also an important way to examine and document plants that might not always be there, says Helen Bynum, who with her husband, William Bynum, compiled "Botanical Sketchbooks" (Princeton Architectural Press, 2017), a compendium of botanical illustrations by 80 artists from around the world. "Being a sketcher of whatever ability makes you really engage with what you are looking at it," says Bynum. Botanical drawing dates back to at least to the times of the Pharaohs. It was particularly developed in the Middle Ages, when plants were often used for medicinal purposes and people needed to be able to tell safe from poisonous plants. A lot of plant families contain both. For instance, the nightshade family of plants includes Belladonna, a poisonous plant, and also edibles like tomatoes, peppers and eggplants. Explorers often brought a botanical artist along to record the plants encountered. During "Tulip Mania" in 17th century Holland, when rare bulbs sold for the equivalent of an average person's annual salary, it was crucial for collectors and breeders to record each flower's unique patterns and contours. And botanical art can be about more than accuracy. ... https://www.nhregister.com/living/article/Botanical-illustration-Putting-a-timely-focus-on-14463500.php
Florist is the unisex underground bag label you've been seeing all over Instagram - Fashion JournalTuesday, September 24, 2019
It is hard to believe that you can start embroidery at 24 years old, have an idk-what-I’m-doing moment and then find yourself in New York City with your own company. But Melbourne-born George Banks has done all that, creating his accessories label Florist in just a couple of years.By doing what most people only ever wish they could – ditch your uni course and move to Manhattan – George is pulling off a version of what I call, The Carrie Bradsure. By lasting not so long at uni and redirecting his passion, George is starting to take up space in the fashion world. He is an advocate for following your instincts. “There is this movement of avant garden fashion that I have noticed in New York as young designers follow on from their final collections and start their own label,” he says, explaining his move. “They continue on their own trajectory, they don’t go and work for someone or work in production, they just go for it. I think the Internet has allowed that space to move forward.”He makes doing New York in your twenties seem worth it. But it wasn’t without its grunt work.“I use a Singer chain stitch machine from the 1930s for the embroidery, that’s what they used to use for varsity jackets. I used to stay after hours at my old job and practise on it, but I would spend two days on one design and then sell it for $200 US dollars because I had a full-time job.”With a business model that relied on a single person hand-cutting patterns in his spare time, sewing leather bags from scratch and then embroidering designs over the top was not sustainable for the return George was getting on them. He had to switch it up. “I had to stop because I couldn’t afford to sell a bag for ... https://fashionjournal.com.au/fashion/florist-unisex-underground-bag-label-youve-seeing-instagram/

How two sisters formed Laurel Floral out of a backyard - Suffolk TimesTuesday, September 24, 2019
August 2017.“She’s the creative one,” Christi said, “I just go along with whatever she does.”Laura, who took design classes at the New York School of Flower Design, said her design experience developed after working with Southold catering company Grace and Grit for roughly 8 years.Once the sisters receive a shipment from their distributor in East Moriches, flowers are kept in a storage space in Laura’s backyard. In coming months, she said, she hopes to construct a temperature-controlled refrigeration system for the summer.While the price of a bouquet is determined by the flowers used, Christi said, a traditional bouquet typically ranges from $40 to $65.The sisters, who moved to the North Fork 17 years ago, are currently taking floral design classes at Western Suffolk Boces. Additional experience, Christi said, has come from working in the hospitality industry.“We’ve learned so much from the people that we’ve worked with throughout the years,” she said. “They introduced us to the hospitality business, and that’s a great characteristic of our business. We know how to cater to people’s needs that makes them feel appreciated.”The duo previously worked at Love Lane Kitchen in Mattituck. Christi said owner Carolyn Iannone has offered them guidance on running a business.“She’s given us a lot of advice in terms of how to manage money and plan now, so problems don’t arise in the future,” Christi said. “We disagree on things, but we go back, talk and work it out.”When she’s not working with her husband’s contracting company or taking care of their three children, Laura designs custom shirts, party invitations and other personalized apparel a la carte.Christi said the pair is scouting for a retail storefront on the North Fork. Once a formal storefront is open, they’ll consider merging the apparel and floral design businesses.“That’s why we wanted to do the shop,” Christi said. “Eventually, who knows where that might lead us.”Laura said the company aims to guide a “build your own arrangement” class later this month. The business is also planning on offering discounts to college or high school students around Mother’s Day.“Working locally, you develop relationships, you know? That sets you apart from other businesses, because you want to make people truly happy with what you do,” Christi said.Bouquets are available online via Instagram or by contacting Christi Carrillo at 631-680-0449.Capt... https://suffolktimes.timesreview.com/2019/03/two-sisters-formed-laurel-floral-backyard/
