How a plain and tired lawn became the Rose Garden - Washington PostMonday, June 27, 2016
Trumans and Eisenhowers, who brought elements such as a putting green, a porchlike balcony to the South Portico, and foundation shrubbery on the north side worthy of a Levittown Cape Cod, “only much bigger,” writes McDowell.You cannot blame successive presidents and their families for the urge to tinker thus. This is, after all, their home for up to eight years — a palace, playground and fortress rolled into one. Harry Truman called it “the great white jail.”No wonder its accumulated elements have included such functional features as Gerald Ford’s swimming pool, George H.W. Bush’s horseshoe pit and Bill Clinton’s jogging track. These somewhat dull accretions weave a historic fabric into the White House garden, but we discover that some of its finest horticultural features have been lost. The Wilsons’ East Garden was a Beaux-Arts jewel designed by Beatrix Farrand, who went on to give us her masterpiece at Dumbarton Oaks.An extensive greenhouse complex was developed between the 1850s and the turn of the 20th century, but it was pulled down to make way for the West Wing expansion under Theodore Roosevelt. Henry Pfister, the German gardener there for 35 years, lost not only his plants but his job. He was forced to open a florist shop, but “the Roosevelts gave him excellent references,” McDowell writes.First lady Michelle Obama, who has just harvested her last spring vegetable garden at the White House, has added a powerful layer to this chapter. The vegetable garden, its apiary and pollinator garden all capture the horticultural zeitgeist of our age.One of the most accomplished gardeners in recent White House times was Laura Bush, but she waited until her return to Texas to engage in some serious landscape creation. When it comes to gardening, being a tenant has its limitations.Adrian Higgins writes about gardening for The Washington Post.

Langhorne shop celebrates 20 years at Philadelphia Flower Show - The Midweek WireMonday, March 28, 2016
It’s a lot of effort for an exhibit that’s just 1,000 square feet — but then again, that’s nearly the size of their Langhorne storefront. “I think it’s a riot that a nurse from Levittown can exhibit at a show that’s seen by 200,000 people,” said Robin, who always says she “married well” when she partnered with her florist husband.“We try to base everything on quality and freshness and a little different approach: It doesn’t have to be what you’ve seen before,” she continued. “We just love flowers and we hope that comes out in our work.”The Philadelphia Flower Show takes place through March 13 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, 1101 Arch St. in Philadelphia.

How Much Does a Wedding Cost on Average?Tuesday, August 28, 2018
Geography matters, too. Getting married in New Mexico only costs, on average, $17,000 according to The Knot. But if you get married in New York City (Manhattan), expect to pay around $76,944. Your head-count matters regardless of budget. The cost of a larger wedding, with 100 people or more, is significantly more than that of an intimate wedding. According to the website CostofWedding.com, 50% of couples keep their wedding costs below $15,000 by opting for an intimate wedding. Yet invite 100 or more guests for a larger wedding, and you're looking at costs totaling twice as much (or more, if you're getting hitched in a big city like San Francisco or New York City). Traditional Wedding Cost Splits Wedding traditions, at least from a financial point of view, haven't changed much over the years. Exhibit "A" is having the bride's family pay the most for the wedding. According to The Knot, the bride's family pays 45% of all wedding costs. Right behind the bride's mom and dad are the actual newlyweds, who contribute 41% of wedding costs. The groom's family pitches in, too, paying 13% of total wedding costs. While traditions remain strong, figuring out who pays for a wedding can be somewhat complicated, given that so many people are getting married (and remarried) later in life. Historically, here's a list of who pays for what in a traditional wedding. It's an important piece of knowledge, considering that you'll need to set up a wedding budget beforehand, and you'll want to know who's paying for individual wedding costs. What the Bride's family traditionally pays for: The reception, complete with drinks, food, music and a wedding cake The wedding ceremony, including flowers and any special decorations The bride's wedding gown The photographer and videographer Limousine or special transportation to the wedding and reception What the Groom's family traditionally pays for: The wedding rehearsal dinner Wedding gifts for the bride and groom What the Bride traditionally pays for: The wedding ring for the groom Any wedding gift for the groom The bride's hairstyling and make-up Wedding gifts for her bridesmaids What the Groom traditionally pays for: The bride and groom's marriage license The bride's engagement ring The honeymoon Any wedding gift for his groomsmen The officiant's wedding fee Five Ways to Save Cash on Your Wedding To have a champagne wedding on a Budweiser budget, you'll need to be creative, innovative and be ready to make ... https://www.thestreet.com/personal-finance/education/how-much-does-wedding-cost-14693474
FIORE florist grew business out of grit and hustleTuesday, August 28, 2018
Pensacola and across the Gulf Coast. The unexpected journey from scrappy college-aged entrepreneur to New York florist to downtown Pensacola business owner took a lot of drive and persistence. Pallin’s 25 years of experience is comprehensive and hard-earned. She quit college at the age of 19 to open her first floral shop, All Occasions. “I told my dad, ‘I’m going to drop out of college and open a flower shop.’ He said, ‘No, you’re not,’ and I said, ‘Yes, I am.’ And I did. I had some flyers made, got on my bicycle and rode around La Jolla, an affluent community near San Diego where we lived, putting flyers on the windshields of Mercedes Benz and Rolls Royce’s, offering to sell flowers, do home decor design and help with events. My grandparents helped me get my business off the ground,” Pallin said. Her parents met in Pensacola — her mother lived here and her father was a pilot in the U.S. Navy. When Pallin and her brother were young, the family moved to her father’s hometown of San Diego and Pallin developed her love of design and event planning from her grandmother. Her grandparents were “big entertainers” and Pallin’s grandmother would give her free reign to explore and utilize the contents of their party supply closets to help them throw themed parties for their friends. “That was how I got interested,” explained Pallin. “She let me have fun with it and I loved it, playing in her enormous linen and candle closets and coming up with themes and vignettes for these parties. Their friends started hiring me.&rdqu... https://www.pnj.com/story/life/2018/08/25/pensacola-florist-grew-fiore-business-out-grit-and-hustle/1070517002/
Four Floral Businesses To Receive The Century Award In Palm SpringsTuesday, August 28, 2018
Century Award recognizes companies that have been in business for 100 years or more. The 2018 Century Award honorees are: City Line Florist in Trumbull, Connecticut; Gould's Flowers in Lockport, New York; Janousek Florist & Greenhouse, Inc. in Omaha, Nebraska; and Lake Forest Flowers in Lake Forest, Illinois. "Each year when we gather at the SAF convention, we interact with business owners who have determination, vision and grit," said SAF Awards Committee Chairman Marvin Miller, Ph.D., AAF, of the Ball Horticultural Company in West Chicago, Illinois. "But to sustain that for 100 years or more is truly an impressive feat." City Line Florist Trumbull, Connecticut City Line Florist has been owned and operated by the Roehrich/Palazzo family since 1918. When Charles Roehrich returned home from World War I, he already had a family history in the floral industry; his grandfather had grown plants in greenhouses in Stratford, Connecticut, in the late 1800s. Charles borrowed a horse and wagon and sold flowering plants and cut flowers at the entrance of St. Michaels cemetery in Stratford, eventually opening up a storefront in Bridgeport, which sat on the city line of Stratford, leading to the name, City Line Florist. In 1975, Charles' son Bob and his grandchildren, Susan and Carl, decided to move to a new location in Trumbull, where they turned an old horse barn into a charming new florist shop. Bob received the Connecticut Florist of the Year Award in 2005. City Line, located in a quaint New England town of 30,000 people, &nb... http://www.perishablenews.com/index.php?article=0069973
