Master instructor shows art of flower arranging - Budapest TimesTuesday, March 19, 2019
She liked to sing jazz. She practised her Spanish and Italian. With Arab ladies, she dressed from top to toe in black robes. She was responsible for a flower show at Westminster Cathedral, London. Overall she sharpened her individuality, freely using other materials as accessories to flowers, and carefully choosing containers.
She gave a solo exhibition of iron containers. She has designed her own glass receptacles. She has become known as an artist who designs stainless and titanium flower vases, finding imaginative effects in her materials’ unique properties.
Some of her arrangements have been huge, built in public places and outdoors. Some have graced the displays in department store windows. She says she is "charmed by cloth, handmade Japanese paper and thread," and incorporates them, as descendants of organic materials, in her arrangements. They have inner spirits, she says, but "plant material is the first for the arranger to think of."Once she taught an ikebana class of blind women. Their adjustments to life impressed her, and from them she learned a new vision for herself. "To touch with the eye, to taste with the eye, to sense fragrance with the eye, to catch sound with the eye — such an expression is the goal of my ikebana."https://www.facebook.com/koka.fukushima https://www.hu.emb-japan.go.jp... https://www.budapesttimes.hu/2019/02/19/master-instructor-shows-art-flower-arranging
What Flowers Will Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank Have At Their Wedding?Tuesday, July 31, 2018
Getty Images Eugenie may also find some inspiration in her parent's royal wedding, which took place in July 1986 at Westminster Abby in London. Even though Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York's wedding was held at a much larger venue than St. George's Chapel, Eugenie and Jack could pay tribute to the bride's parents by including some of their floral choices at their wedding. Sarah famously carried a bouquet in the shape of an "S." Designed by the florist Jane Packer, it included gardenias, roses, lily of the valley, and the traditional sprig of myrtle. Sarah also wore a flower crown, but removed it during the ceremony, and wore the York Tiara for the rest of the wedding. Eugenie could look to her mother's unique floral choices for inspiration on her wedding day. Getty Images Getty Images Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's recent royal wedding could also give the bride and groom some ideas on how to decorate St. George's Chapel, the venue for both ceremonies. Harry and Meghan used florist Philippa Craddock to design their wedding flowers, and the couple included white garden roses, foxgloves, and peonies, along with branches of beech, birch, and horn... https://www.townandcountrymag.com/the-scene/weddings/a21946955/princess-eugenie-wedding-flowers/

Interview: florist Philippa Craddock on life after Harry and Meghan's royal wedding. 'Of course I was nervous'Tuesday, June 19, 2018
I knew that was it,” says Philippa Craddock. As the florist behind the archway of tumbling foliage that dressed Windsor Castle for the most anticipated nuptials since William wed Kate at Westminster Abbey in 2011, it’s fair to say she achieved her goal. In fact, along with the bride’s Givenchy gown, the Kingdom Choir and Bishop Michael Curry’s now famous sermon, the mass of white blooms that framed Meghan Markle and her 16ft silk-tulle veil as she entered St George’s Chapel was one of the most modern and memorable spectacles of the day. The magnificent displays outside and in, constructed using a variety of boughs gathered from Windsor Great Park, took a team of 30 people just… Want to read more?Register with a few details to continue reading this article. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/interview-florist-philippa-craddock-on-life-after-harry-and-meghan-s-royal-wedding-of-course-i-was-nervous-0mn0p7w96

58-year-old Beaufort flower shop to reopen in August - Hilton Head Island PacketTuesday, March 19, 2019
After working on a luxury skincare line and getting it on the shelves at Harrods, Stone took her two sons on a summer trip to South Carolina in 2013. Vacationing on Fripp Island with friends and family brought back happy memories of growing up in the South. Returning to London was a little sad for Stone and her sons -- ultimately, the city's "cold, gray" weather and commuter culture weren't working for the trio anymore.

Tennessee's 2019 Offseason Outlook: Safety - 247SportsTuesday, March 05, 2019
The Vols got a glimpse of life with them not in the picture last season, when Abernathy missed four games due to injury and Kelly didn't play much defensively outside of the starts he made against South Carolina and Charlotte.Abernathy, slowed by injury in two of his three seasons as a starter, had just 38 tackles and three tackles for loss in 2018 after he was third on the team with 81 tackles the previous season, while Kelly was hindered the past two seasons by knee problems that were bad enough he won't be continuing his football career.WHO'S HERE> Nigel Warrior (Sr.), Theo Jackson (Jr.), Shawn Shamburger (Jr.), Cheyenne Labruzza (R-So.), Trevon Flowers (So.), Brandon Davis (R-Fr.), Jaylen McCollough (Fr.)Warrior returns for his senior season and presumably will remain in his starting role. The former top-100 prospect has yet to make the kind of impact the Vols have hoped he would, though he's been Tennessee's second-leading tackler the past two seasons. Despite his production, Warrior occasionally struggled with his pursuit angles and tackling in run support and in coverage, but he likes the Pruitt, knows new defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach Derrick Ansley from recruiting and has one final season to put it all together.The competition for the other starting safety spot alongside Warrior quietly could be one of the better ones on the team this offseason.Flowers has be to considered the favorite even though he had some freshman moments last September before a collarbone injury during the open date essentially made him a non-factor for the rest of the season. He's a favorite of Tennessee's coaching staff and should benefit from a full offseason of reps as he continues to transition from baseball to football, which he didn't play in high school until his senior year. He was starting to turn the corner last year when he got hurt.Jackson and Shamburger drew starts and saw increased playing time when Abernathy and Flowers were injured in the middle of last season, and each had their moments, both good and bad. They figure to remain in the mix for playing time at safety and the Star/Money positions, which both played last season. Shamburger was in and out of Pruitt's doghouse last season (he didn't even make the travel roster for the Georgia game and started at Auburn two weeks later), but the Vols still think he can be a quality player.Labruzza has played in 11 games, primarily on special teams, the past two seasons, but Davis should be able to get in the mix in the secondary after redshirting last season... https://247sports.com/college/tennessee/Article/Tennessee-Vols-safety-2019-Offseason-Outlook-Nigel-Warrior-Trevon-Flowers-129598306/
