We weighed the pros and cons.”But now both say they will be able to spend more time with their families.“Over the years, we would always say to one another that someday when we retire, we would do this or that,” Tom said. "And now, maybe we will."MEMORIESBitterswe... http://www.ncnewsonline.com/news/weingartner-s-through-the-years-eight-decades-of-business-comes/article_f8745a4c-c35d-11e7-aeb5-6720a670647b.html
The Flower Bar: flowers, coffee, pastries and more - Hometownlife.comTuesday, December 05, 2017
She had closed due to health issues."The Flower Bar offers flowers, coffee, baked goods and gifts at the corner of Pontiac Trail and N. Territorial. (Photo: LeAnne Rogers)While working at a florist in downtown Plymouth, Laura Huey had the idea to open a florist shop at the building. "Then I thought maybe flowers wouldn't be enough, so we added what we like," she said. "It took us almost three years to the day to get the work done on the building. We did a lot of it ourselves."More: Call to South Lyon police finds problem is a sleepy dadMore: That cup of coffee may help give this family a better ChristmasMore: South Lyon Hotel reopens after rebuilding from massive fireThat includes coffee from Uncommon Coffee in Southgate, espresso drinks, tea, chai latte and other drinks. Baked goods come from Cantoro's in Livonia and Crust in Fenton. Some baked goods also come from the Shimmy Shack."We try to sell local stuff as much as possible — from Detroit, South Lyon, Southgate," said Brett Huey, who previously had an automotive related-business. Some unusual dishes are offered at the Flower Bar. (Photo: LeAnne Rogers)That includes bath bombes and other products from Made With Love Essentials. Another product is a line of flavored vinegars, ranging from watermelon to beet and carrot and lemon ginger."You can just drink them or use them as drink mixes. They taste better than regular apple cider vinegar," said Celia Huey, who is studying business management at Wayne State University. "We work really hard to find things that you can't buy in downtown Plymouth."Due to restrictions of its building, the Flower Bar is allowed only outdoor seating. "We would like to do outdoor events. It's ever-evolving. We want to be a destination — let's stop by and see what they are doing today," Brett Huey said. "We see mostly South Lyon customers, people on their way to Ann Arbor.

Chillipetals Florist & Coffee Shop Tuxford Maiden Hurdle - Grandnationalpro.comTuesday, December 05, 2017
Chillipetals Florist & Coffee Shop Tuxford Maiden HurdleAshkoul, a dual winner on the Flat in France, finished runner-up in a three-horse race on his hurdling bow at Kempton but should have improved for the experience. First Du Charmil found 2m4f stretching his stamina at Newbury in May after a better run over this trip at Towcester but SIR EGBERT ran well for a long way before blowing up at Ffos Las on his reappearance and may have come on enough to take this. Wenceslaus hasn't really shown enough but Phoenix Rock will have come on for her run at Worcester in October and should do better. Winning point-to-pointer Copper West has his first start for Tom George after transferring from Ireland where he showed promise in bumpers while Scorpion Express landed a bumper here before well beaten at Aintree. http://www.grandnationalpro.com/odds/racing/southwell/chillipetals-florist-coffee-shop-tuxford-maiden-hurdle-20171205/
An 'It' Flower for a Feminist Moment - New York TimesTuesday, December 05, 2017
Adwoa Aboah holds a glossy anthurium that matches the cherry red of her Le Marc liquid lip crayon and contrasts the makeup’s matte finish.Vases of anthuriums, arranged by the florist Brittany Asch of Brrch, decorate the Glossier Showroom on Lafayette Street and Totokaelo’s store at 190 Bowery. Ms. Asch collaborated with the artists Petra Collins and Madelyne Beckles for their Museum of Modern Art performance piece, “In Search of Us,” creating anthurium-focused arrangements for the mantel at the center of the set. Ms. Asch’s bouquets also helped set the mood at two New York Fashion Week events in September: Sandy Liang’s presentation at the Standard East Village and Mansur Gavriel’s all-pink pop-up shop.Mansur Gavriel, a leather accessories brand, was Ms. Asch’s first big client.“I met with them, and there was just a lot of synchronicity,” the florist said, between “the work I wanted to produce and wasn’t able to produce because I didn’t have an outlet and what they wanted.”Her chosen flower turned out to be a perfect fit for the company’s aesthetic.“A lot of their work was very sculptural and art driven, and it’s such a graphic flower that it made so much sense,” she said.As her profile rose, Ms. Asch began fielding requests for weddings and other events. Emily Weiss, the C.E.O. and founder of Glossier, asked her to create the bouquet for her wedding, which consisted of reflexed roses, poppies and ranunculus. Pleased with the result, Ms. Weiss then asked Ms. Asch to design the flowers for the introduction of Glossier’s Milky Jelly Cleanser product.“I was going through my Rolodex of flowers,” Ms. Asch said. “What’s kind of glossy and waxy? I wanted people to have this floral translation of the Milky Jelly. What flowers can I use that elicit that kind of sense memory?” She went with anthuriums, and filled out the arrangements with flowers like the ones Ms. Weiss had loved so much on her wedding day. Since then, she has been the company’s florist of choice.Anthuriums are native to South America, where they grew for centuries...
