Lavender Green Flowers: The British florist of choice for weddings and events - ITCMTuesday, August 29, 2017
Venues include the British Museum, Claridges, The Berkeley, The Connaught, Coworth Park, Hampton Court Palace, Kensington Palace, The Langham Hotel, The National Gallery, The Natural History Museum, Somerset House, St Paul’s Cathedral, Tower of London, The V&A, The Wallace Collection, Westminster Abbey and Windsor Castle. They also create flowers on behalf of 60-100 discerning brides every year. 2017 has been the busiest year yet, with a huge influx of high profile weddings and outdoor events throughout the summer season. Working at The RHS, Chelsea Flower Show, Aegon Championships, Royal Ascot and Wimbledon, they put the floral designs on the central stage, going above and beyond to deliver stand-out spectacles. (Lavender Green Flowers place a significant amount of emphasis on the whole picture, considering and often advising on every other element of an event that becomes important, such as lighting, furniture and even food.) From the initial brief and design process through to the creation and subsequent delivery, clients know that they can rely on Lavender Green Flowers’ highly inventive, hard-working and experienced team. As is often the case, nothing is ever out-sourced meaning installations are slick and efficient. The designers, florists and installers are all part of the Lavender Green Flowers’ family, and they therefore share the same passion and enthusiasm for the perfect execution of every job. Barnes says, “I was not interested in learning how to be a florist. I was interested in learning how to sell amazing flowers and how to create breath-taking flower displays. I have always wanted to be the very best I can possibly be at whatever I do, and so failure was not an option. It is incredible to make money out of a low margin product. You need the tenacity of a limpet, self-belief, a great team of kindred spirits and to enjoy the experience… plus an awful lot of luck!”...

Fresh from FLORIST - officemagazine.netTuesday, October 22, 2019
In fact, FLORIST proved itself an instant classic. What was once a brand as underground as your favorite Chinatown knock-off stop is now a booming business. office spoke with the up-and-coming designer about fake flowers, spaghetti westerns, and what’s next for FLORIST.How did you get into making embroidered bags? I always like to add little expressions to my clothes, through either painting or embroidery. Hand embroidery was far too time consuming, so I taught myself to chain stitch. Initially I was making bags as a little side project after hours at my old work. I loved working on large motifs and loved the idea that someone would be walking around the streets with my work on display, in the form of a bag. What kind of technical training do you have? I'm not technically trained, I’ve just taught myself everything through trial and error. I really enjoy the process of trying to figure out how to make something or how to use a particular machine. I also think that the fact t... http://officemagazine.net/fresh-florist
Arlene's Flowers v. Washington - Cato InstituteTuesday, October 22, 2019
First Amendment-protected artistic expression. The U.S. Supreme Court remanded the case for reconsideration in the light of its 2018 ruling in a similar context (except a baker instead of a florist) in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission that state officials displayed anti-religious animus and thus could not enforce their law. In the absence of similar anti-religious red flags, it’s probably not surprising that the state supreme court reinstated its previous opinion almost verbatim.Yet the U.S. Supreme Court precedent against compelled speech is strong. In West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette (1943), the Court ruled that school children could not be forced salute the flag and recite the pledge of allegiance. And in Wooley v. Maynard (1977), the Court found that New Hampshire could not require drivers to display the state motto (“live free or die”) on their license plates. (That case is why, if your jurisdiction has a default slogan—for example, “taxation without representation” in D.C.—it has to offer you an alternative if you ask.) In a pair of 2018 cases, NIFLA v. Becerra, and Janus v. AFSCME, the Court found that states could not force a pro-life clinic to read a script advising patients on how to get an abortion, and that non-union members of a collective bargaining unit could not be forced to pay for union speech with which they disagree, respectively.The Court had the opportunity to tackle the issue of whether states may force wedding vendors to create cakes for same-sex weddings in Masterpiece. But the Court didn’t reach the issue of whether the First Amendment—speech or religion clauses—protects a refusal to provide a product or service for a particular occasion, if so how to draw the line between professions that are and aren’t sufficiently expressive to gain that protection, or any other major controversy that continues to roil lower courts. Justice Clarence Thomas wrote a concurrence offering some guidance, but post-Masterpiece state and circuit cou... https://www.cato.org/publications/legal-briefs/arlenes-flowers-v-washington-2
