Business in bloom - Hollister Free LanceWednesday, March 14, 2018
Hollister since 1997, always had affinity toward event planning. As a stay-at-home-mom, she took pleasure in planning school fundraisers and parties for her children, Bradley and Amanda, now 22 and 21.“I just love putting parties together,” she says.Working in restaurants, and at the Santa Clara Convention Center, gave her the hospitality experience she needed to begin coordinating events for Fox Creek Ranch, which is owned by Laurie and Florian Barth.“I helped Laurie with a couple of weddings that she already had set up,” Christin explains. “After that first year, she said, ‘I don’t want to do any of this—I just want you to do all of it.’”Christin accepted the challenge.And by taking it, a new business opportunity opened up for her at The Lemon Grove, which was recently opened on Southside Road in Hollister, and owned by Ty and Janet Lompa.Christin says, at the request of the Lompas, her company has taken over their events as well.And now, she has a new business with The Flower Girl—a shop with something for everyone.For locals, she has fresh flowers in bunches, where people can pick out flowers they want in an arrangement. And for the tourists visiting the town, she sells plants and homemade items.She also has arranged bouquets in cellophane to take home, and balloons for birthdays or cheer-me-ups.She also carries cards—but not just ordinary cards.Christin has gone to great lengths to ensure they aren’t ones you find at the nearest drugstore.“I put a thing out on Facebook saying I was looking for local people that make cards and want to sell them,” she says.“I got a whole bunch of responses on that; it was fantastic. Right now I have four different people that I am showcasing—they have very unique, very beautiful cards. And they’re all $5 or less, which is nice for handmade card.”As for her future goals, Christin and Greg plan on offering La Casa Rosa as an event venue, with her flowers being part of the “package.”“I really just want to be Leal,” she laughs. “I actually just want to follow behind him and pick up his little crumbs. I just want to be a kind of mini Leal.”All joking aside, Christin is serious with her ultimate business vision within the town of San Juan Bautista. And part of that vision entails the renovation of La Casa Rosa.“This town really needs more restaurants,” she says. “There are four different places in town that serve alcohol and don’t have food. We really want to do a venue that’s easy to deliver; we’re going to do tapas plates and gourmet sliders, and salads, something that’s totally different for this town, and also easy to do a delivery service to the other places here on Third Street that need food.”Margot Tankersley, owner of Margot’s Ice Cream Parlor in San Juan Bautista, has been impressed with Christin’s drive to succeed.“She’s gonna be a really good asset to San Juan Bautista,” Tankersley says.“She just seems like a real go-getter and willing to put the extra effort in. And that’s what’s gonna make her great.”Tankersley is not the only person in town who is excited to have Christin and her shop in town.The day before she first opened her doors, Christin was approached from a lady who does flowers at the Mission San Juan Bautista.Finding out Christin was indeed the owner of the new flower shop in town, the lady exclaimed, “You just saved my life!”The Bishop of the Diocese of Monterey was coming that weekend, and floral arrangements were needed for the Mission.“So we made some bi...

Be Local when preparing for prom - Uniontown Herald StandardTuesday, May 01, 2018
April being the busiest time — especially for seamstresses who make alterations. Lovat said her shop, which also carries silk flowers, receives customers from as far away as West Virginia and Ohio.This year’s trends for prom include mermaid gowns with a fluffy bottom as well as a two-piece gown that includes a separated bodice and skirt.“Some like the plain but more like the bling,’’ said Lovat. “Then they get the accessories: shoes and jewelry. It all has to blend in.’’Popular jewelry pieces include rose gold and blue sapphire, Lovat said, while popular colors for gowns this year include black, gray, white and champagne.Regarding tuxedos, Ptak said, “Basic black is still used but many are going for fashionable colors in the blue family: navy, cobalt and indigo. Slim-fitting pants are almost a must for those who like and can wear it. Slim-fitting tuxedos are extremely popular. It’s the look you see on TV: a shorter coat and slim fit is very popular.’’Ptak said many youths want to coordinate with their date’s outfit but some want their own looks. Matching vests are as popular as colored vests.“What’s really popular are bow ties,’’ said Ptak, noting some even choose plaid and multi colors.He observed that where youths came in alone or with their dates in the past, today it becomes a family event with lots of photographs taken.Photographs are also popular at hair salons where many youths are experiencing their first formal hairstyle.“Braids are in at the moment,’’ said Morriston. “But it’s usually an updo where you curl and pin everything.’’Morriston said hairdressers can add glitter or a piece the youths bring in, such as a broach, to accessorize the young lady’s hair.Don’t wait too long to order flowers as Steve Neubauer, of Neubauer’s Flowers in Uniontown, noted many proms are taking place over Mother’s Day weekend, already a busy time for florists. Order early to find the best selection of flowers.When you do order, there’s a variety of choices.“Hand-tied nosegays are the most popular this year,’’ said Neubauer, “followed by wrist corsages and arm bouquets.’’As for colors, Neubauer said, “With technology, everybody has plenty of colors. The colors are as varied as the dresses.’’He explained flowe...
