Thinking pink? Take a creative chance, like a glass cylinder of pink orchids ($79.95). While roses are still the favorite, Walker says tulips are becoming more an more popular, partly because they’re in season, but also because they last longer (generally about 10 days) and open and close daily. Specials on tulips start at $45.95 and top out at $69.95 for a fuller display, like the "So Sweet" selection ($57.95) featuring a red, white, and pink dozen.Appropriately housed under the old "My Florist" sign on the corner of Seventh Avenue and McDowell Road, Community Florist is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and until noon on Saturday.

How a Mining Boom Led a Mormon Florist to Invent the Pisco Sour - Atlas ObscuraWednesday, March 14, 2018
Once a florist in Utah, Victor V. Morris lived half his life in Peru and opened a famous bar. Femke de JongOn the first Saturday of February, Peruvians raise a glass to their country’s most well-known cocktail: the Pisco Sour. Since 2003, this simple twist on the classic Whiskey Sour has had its own national holiday. But while the drink evokes a sense of pride in Peru, the Pisco Sour is largely considered the invention of an unlikely figure: a Mormon man from Salt Lake City named Victor V. Morris.The curious path that led Morris from Utah to the Peruvian Andes began not in spirits but in flowers. Born into a large and well-respected Welsh Mormon family, Morris co-ran a floral shop with two of his brothers. But tragedy struck in 1900, when Morris’s older brother, Burton, got into a fight while on a date and was killed by two bullets through his heart. Worse, the assailant was acquitted in a high-profile case after pleading self-defense. An outraged Morris told a reporter that the legislature “should immediately repeal the law making murder an offens...
Shopping with a Side of Flowers: From New York to LA, Flower Shops Are Popping Up in Chic Boutiques - Vogue.comTuesday, February 27, 2018
And this week, Mansur Gavriel took their concept to the West Coast, opening a 2,500-square-foot store (complete with a homewares market and a café) on Melrose Place in L.A. where you can peruse poppies and proteas alongside their products.Floral designer Emily Thompson just opened up shop inside the new Roman and Williams Guild New York—a European-inspired café-marketplace-interiors store that Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch originally imagined as a shop for their furniture, and she has a different take on the industry’s profound love of flowers. “I think there is a fantasy about getting to be surrounded by [flowers], and I think that’s what’s happening at Guild—it’s meant to happen there. You may or may not choose to buy anything from the flower shop, but you still get to have it for the time you spend drinking your tea and being on the premises. And I think that is enriching,” Thompson says.Despite the fact that Guild was conceived as a furniture store, Standefer and Alesch, both masters of creating fantasy spaces, decided to put the flower shop right up front. “You get in, and there’s just this riot of color and flowers, and it’s almost an installation, but there’s also something really basic about it—it makes you smile. It’s so beautiful for that to be the first moment,” says Standefer, who wanted the shop to feel like a home. Thompson’s flowers extend well past her jewel-box-sized shop into the rest of Guild, where her sculptural designs are thoughtfully placed throughout—serving as both décor and inspiration for visitors.Just a few blocks away, another Soho spot has carved out a dedicated space for flowers that, like Roman and Williams Guild, is intended to create an all-encompassing experience. When online consignment retailer The RealReal opened its first brick-and-mortar outpost late last year, they sought out floral designer and Fox Fodder Farm founder Taylor Patterson. “We love the more architectural take Taylor has on flowers. Her educational approach to her displays also fits perfectly with our mission of building an engaging community within our store,” says Rati Levesque, chief merchant at The RealReal. T...
Los Gatos: Local man serves up flowers and smiles in front of Jack Rose - The Mercury NewsTuesday, January 02, 2018
Hacienda Inn for 30 years.The inn was transformed in 2013 into Jack Rose Libation House. His mother’s name is Rosa, “rose” in Spanish, and he’s from Miraflores, which means “looking flower,” in Peru.His flower business has grown from two buckets filled with blooms to several buckets of flowers and handmade wreaths on display for the holidays.“I have generational customers; they come with their parents as children and come back with their own boyfriend or girlfriend as they get older,” Flores said with a smile. “When the children grow up and move away to other states, they often come back to visit and get flowers from me.”He recalled the story of a young man who was a very good student and had gotten a scholarship to attend Stanford University, and then another to study abroad in England.Since the man didn’t have money to purchase flowers for his girlfriend, Flores gave him two dozen roses and told him that when he finished school he could pay him back.“When the young man got his first job after college, he came back and gave me $100,” Flores said. “I was surprised by that.”Before moving to the United States for school, Flores sold flowers in Peru, so he thought setting up in Saratoga made sense.“I used to sell flowers in San Jose, but after six months, I came back,” Flores said. “I love it here. The people are really nice to me.”And he’s has tried to sell flowers in...
Hurricane Irma leads to historic flower shortage for local florists - Kokomo TribuneTuesday, September 26, 2017
That’s all lead to an historic flower shortage for U.S. floral shops.Dave Baird, co-owner of Webster Florist in Peru, said he’s worked in the industry for 57 years, and he’s never seen such a massive disruption to the U.S. flower supply.“This hurricane probably has had the most effect on the quality, quantity and types of flowers we can get that I’ve ever seen,” he said Friday. “It’s been very limited on colors and the amounts. I know some wholesalers just got some stuff in today, but it’s an extremely limited supply.”Lagzdins agreed. She said in her more than 20 years at Banner Flower, she’s dealt with small disruptions in the flower supply, but nothing on this scale.“Most other disruptions you can cope with,” she said. “You can change your shipper, but this was so massive. I guess you just have to go with flow.”And so do their clients. Lagzdins said her shop is providing floral arrangements for two large weddings this weekend. The flowers were ordered and had already arrived in Florida. But the shipment never arrived because the trucks couldn’t get out of the state.“These were all ordered for the wedding and they were shipped for the wedding, but those shipments are stuck in Miami,” she said. “The brides we are working with have been exceedingly understanding. Everyone is bending over backwards to make everything happen on schedule.”For Banner Flower, that means working with four distributors who are trying to scrounge up the requested flowers from other locations from around the U.S. and all over the world. But it’s slim picking, Lagzdins said.And all the effort trying to track down flowers has doubled her workload.“You’re on the horn all the time trying to track down your stuff,” Lagzdins said. “This has been the most stress that I can remember. First, you’ve g... http://www.kokomotribune.com/news/hurricane-irma-leads-to-historic-flower-shortage-for-local-florists/article_ea9f4f4a-9a4e-11e7-9ab0-77d1b200705a.html

Keeb never wanted that. We ultimately decided to travel away, and we’re both very happy that we did. We didn’t have to go crazy with planning a huge wedding. We wish we would have hired a wedding planner. It would’ve been helpful to have someone more experienced and also more familiar with the area to assist us.
