City florist set to bloom at floral Olympics in PhillyTuesday, June 05, 2018
Trending Stories “It’s a pretty big thing. I’m representing Canada in floral design,” said Paul Jaras of next year’s competition in Pennsylvania. “It’s like the most prestigious award you can win in the floral industry.” On March 17, Jaras placed second at the Pacific Northwest Cup in Vancouver. On March 23, he took home first place at the Maple Leaf Cup in Edmonton. “I’m having a lot of fun and doing well,” Jaras said. Those finishes qualified Jaras for the 2018 Gateway to the Americas Cup next month in Orlando and the 2019 World Cup of Floral Design — a.k.a. the floral Olympics — next February in Philadelphia, where he will be the lone Canadian competitor. Floral competitions, which are often hosted by wholesalers, involve each participant needing to interpret a particular category by using the same materials available to all competitors. They are then scored based on a variety of design elements from a 100-point sheet. “Many people have compared it to Master Chef, where you get a surprise package,” Jaras said. “We don’t know the flowers in advance. We might know them a half an hour before the competition. Sometimes we do know the categories in advance.” At the Maple Leaf Cup, Jaras and competitors from across Canada were as... http://www.kamloopsthisweek.com/community/city-florist-set-to-bloom-at-floral-olympics-in-philly-1.23295348
Former White House Florist: State Visit Revealed First Lady Melania Trump's 'Formidable' Cultural Diplomacy - Breitbart NewsTuesday, May 01, 2018
Emmanuel Macron, his wife Brigitte, and other guests.Dowling’s perspective on what unfolded inside the White House is one reserved for an insider. Dowling served as the chief floral designer at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue from 2009 to 2015. She’s also the author of two books; Floral Diplomacy at the White House and A White House Christmas.For Dowling, the state visit and dinner were not only an impressive show of what she calls “cultural diplomacy” but also a shining moment for first lady Melania Trump, who single-handedly planned every detail of the ceremonial meal.Dowling was so inspired, she wrote a commentary about it and shared it with Breitbart News.“For many observers, the diplomatic tour de force on display during this week’s France state visit was a master class in the subtle and fine art of international diplomacy,” Dowling wrote. “Even die-hard critics seemed to pause for a moment to admire the multi-faceted diplomatic itinerary that went off without a hitch.”Dowling noted that when the Macrons arrived at Joint Base Andrews, they were given a bouquet of purple irises — the national flower of France.“At the intimate state dinner, meticulously planned and executed by the first lady herself without a coterie of consultants and planners, guests reveled in the elegant setting of a candle-lit State Dining Room,” Dowling wrote. “In the manner of Jacqueline Kennedy, the first lady planned and executed an... http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/04/28/former-white-house-florist-statevisit-revealed-first-lady-melania-trump-formidable-cultural-diplomacy/
