DC residents call for American University to save local florist - W*USA 9Tuesday, January 16, 2018
WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - After 84 years, a local DC florist is closing its doors, prompting action from community members who are sad to see the business go.Johnson’s Florist and Garden Center in Tenleytown announced on January 3rd that they will be closing their D.C. location on or before January 14. In a letter posted to their website, they wrote that the reason for closure is the “result of the significant increase in rent and other related fees of occupancy imposed upon us by the building’s owner,” which they say they were unable to negotiate with their landlord.On Sunday, community members called for the American University, which owns the building on Wisconsin Avenue, to save the florist, gathering in front of Johnson’s Tenleytown location. They carried signs that said "AU save Johnson's" and "Burwell save Johnson's," referring to American University President Sylvia Burwell.According to a statement put out Mary Alice Levine, a resident of Tenleytown, a committee has been formed to save the florist. The committee is call... http://www.wusa9.com/news/local/dc/dc-residents-call-for-american-university-to-save-local-florist/506011439
As wedding costs top $25000, couples and businesses adjust - AZ Big MediaTuesday, January 16, 2018
There are even vendors that specialize in coordinating and planning the event itself, all of whom have their own brand, business model and goals.Arizona wedding planner and florist Skyla Wilson started her business when she was 22.“I gained my event planning experience through working with nonprofit organizations, planning galas and fundraisers,” Wilson said. “Then, through that, I found that planning weddings, and working with two people on the most special day of their lives was more fulfilling for me.”Wilson said her market demographic appeals to customers between the ages of 25 to 32.“I think that I tend to work with younger clients because of how young I am,” she said. “When it comes to florals, wedding design and style, I think that younger couples trust me to know their vision.”Wilson said couples of the millennial generation prefer to personalize their weddings and add elements that represent who they are as a couple.“They’re bombarded by trends and inspiration on every social media platform, so when it comes to their own personal experience, they want it to be unique to them,” Wilson said.Vendor-client communicationVendors have found technology and social media have made a significant impact on communication and relationships with their clients.For Wilson’s business, Skyla Brooke’s Weddings and Events, technology has helped her communicate with her clients more thoroughly.“It’s a platform that allows me to communicate with the couple, their families and even their wedding party simultaneously,” Wilson said. “We can add people to the forum and we are notified whenever any activity occurs. This also keeps me from getting texts and phone calls at all hours every day.”Other vendors say technology has created a 24/7 industry and can cause delays in the planning process.“Since everything can be done through a phone in our pockets, it’s human nature to push things to the last minute. I get more calls after hours and more texts on Saturdays and Sundays. The expectation in this industry is that you are available 24 hours a day to the couple,” said Jocelin Meesenburg, event manager at the Sheraton Downtown Phoenix.Andrea Micetic and Christiana Hammond from The Elegant Barn said they mostly communicate with couples via email or text. Taryn Pollock, the owner of Serendipity vide0 and Simply Cinema services, said sometimes she won’t actually speak to the couple until the day of the event.“There’s constant communication and yet my phone never rings. Sometimes I wonder why I even have a business line,” Pollock said.By contrast, Meesenburg said in her experience, every couple wants to sit down in person and talk through the details leading up to the wedding.“Even millennials, they want to come to lunch and go over the final details of their wedding face-to-face. The more complex the service is, the more couples want to meet in person. To the bride it’s a concept of, ‘I see your file, I see your notes. You look so confident. I feel better,’” she said.However, most vendors agree reviews and especially complaints happen almost purely online.Social media in the wedding market“People find a lot of security in hiding behind a computer screen. They can be a lot more vicious, a lot more angry and a lot more mean. Then when you go and call the couple, suddenly they’re saying that it wasn’t that bad and they were just frustrated, when on their review or email, they said that I ruined their wedding,” Pollock said.“It’s very scary for business owners because reviews are awesome, but at the same time, clients have the opportunity to be the judge and the jury in that situation. If you get a bad review it is impossible to get it removed, even if it’s not true,” she said.In addition to keeping up with clients and coordinating, vendors need to create a presence on the social media platform, adding an entirely new sector to their business. During The Knot Workshop, an industry event held in Scottsdale this summer, there were sessions dedicated to social media practices.Social media, esp...

Cosentino: How horticulture has changed in Auburn and at large - Auburn CitizenTuesday, January 16, 2018
When I have lunch with my business friendsThey say, “Florist do you knowHow rapidly your weeks all go?You’re perplexed and out of reason,You’re ahead of every seasonIn the summer, you are livingPlanning sales for next ThanksgivingCome Thanksgiving, you don’t pause,You’re unpacking Santa ClausBefore the presents are deliveredYou plan Valentines for giversWeddings you do all year longAren’t you bewildered and sometimes wrong?"After last week’s column about all the things I am grateful for as I lead my life in horticulture, I thought that this week I would talk about how things have changed in my 80-plus years of growing and selling plants and flowers. As I look back, in some instances, nothing is the same — and at the same time, I think that the more things change, the more they remain the same. Confusing? You bet it is. As I tell this story about florists and growers, I base it on my experiences at our flower shop. After all, it is what I know best. And, to be honest, I’ve told the story many times in the past, especially in my seminars f... http://auburnpub.com/lifestyles/cosentino-how-horticulture-has-changed-in-auburn-and-at-large/article_36e43940-eac9-51ab-90d2-e74cf45439ae.html
