'Shark Tank' investment Alice's Table blossoms in Cape Coral, Southwest Florida - The News-PressTuesday, May 01, 2018
Florida. Since I was really interested, I sent an email to Alice and less than a month later, I became the Southwest Florida event exec."She is pleased with the initial response, with classes at Anthony's on the Boulevard in Cape Coral, private classes at Shell Point in Fort Myers and bookings for bridal showers, holidays and even themed events. Petals and Pilates is a pilates class on May 11 followed by the Alice's Table floral arranging class with snacks sponsored by Kind. A second one will be held an afternoon on May 12 at Lynq restaurant called "Mom's Day Out at the Lynq," which includes a complimentary glass of Champagne. A return to Tipsy Cow is set for May 20. "People are looking for more relaxing activities to do around town — and this one really uses the sense of touch, sight and smell," Beck said.The attendees don aprons to protect their clothing, and get a brief introduction to flower arranging, with tips liberally sprinkled in along the way. They can do arrangements, wreaths and flower crowns for flower girls or other festivities."I love the fact that many of the instructional tips you learn can help someone create an arrangement at home the next time they run into their local grocery store for flowers like a pro," Beck said.From how much water the flowers need and the water temperature, stripping the leaves off to keep them above the water level, and marking the container off in a tic-tac-toe grid with tape to keep proportions right, she kept the class on track.A mishap with hydrangeas had her scrambling at the last minute."They get a little persnickety," Beck said. "We're not giving you brown flowers. We want you guys to make the most beautiful arrangements."She substituted a solitary yellow rose."We're not cheap and chintzy with these flowers," Beck said, the value of the flowers and container in each arrangement about $50. After adding Italian ruscus for greenery, stripping thorns from roses, snipping tulips to a good height, and spritzing the flowers, the arrangement "recipe" was close to complete. The attendees could add to their bouquets from the...

A Colorado baker, a Richland florist: Do religious beliefs justify discrimination? - seattlepi.comWednesday, January 03, 2018
The case drew an unusually long 90-minute argument before the Supreme Court and more than 100 amici curiae briefs.Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, author of seminal gay rights opinions, appeared likely the deciding vote.With the Trump administration arguing the case of baker Jack Phillips, Kennedy asked whether Phillips could have put a sign in the window: "We don't bake cakes for gay weddings." He described the administration's argument as offensive to the "dignity" of LGBTQ people.But Kennedy took Colorado officials to task in their treatment of Phillips, saying: "It seems to me the state in its position has been neither tolerant nor respectful of Mr. Phillips' religious beliefs." The justice suggested a state civil rights commission was excessive when it ordered Phillips to have remedial training for his workers.The case poses a basic question: Can religious beliefs be used to get around laws that forbid discrimination based on sexual preference or gender identity?Yes, the religious right has argued. "Pray that the Supreme Court will protect religious liberty and people of faith across our nation," evangelist Franklin Graham tweeted, with a picture of Jack Phillips.No, said the state of Washington in a strongly worked amicus curiae brief."Allowing commercial businesses to use the First Amendment as a shield for discriminatory conduct would undermine state civil rights law and the vital benefits they provide to residents and visitors , leaving behind a society separate and unequal by law," said the brief, filed by Attorney General Bob Ferguson.EMAIL NEWSLETTERS: Get breaking news and the day's top stories in your inbox"Many Americans would face exclusion from a host of everyday businesses or, at the very least, the ever-present threat that any business owner could refuse to serve them when they walk in the door -- simply because of their sexual orientation, or their race, religion or gender".The Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative legal group, has represented both Phillips in Colorado and Stutzman, owner of Arlene's Flowers, in this state.The group's attorney Kristen Waggoner, described Phillips' wedding cake as a "temporary sculpture", and that his services cannot be equated to other vendors."The tailor is not engaging in speech, nor is the chef," Waggoner argued."The baker is engaged in speech, but the chef is not engaging in speech?" asked Justice Elena Kagan.Phillips has argued through the case that he is a creative artist, befitting the title "Masterpiece Cakeshop." The Trump administration argued that under the First Amendment, Phillips is protected from crafting something that "inherently" sends a message opposed to his religio...
