Shout Out: Michael Brown, owner of The Eiffel Flower in Arlington Heights - Chicago TribuneTuesday, February 27, 2018
On a recent bleak and blustery morning in downtown Arlington Heights, longtime resident Michael Brown's new shop, The Eiffel Flower, offered visitors a cozy enclave to escape the winter chill.Brown, 51, said he is enjoying the third act of a life that has included serving as a director of day programs at Glenkirk, followed by two decades as a stay-at-home dad, and since last September, the co-owner of The Eiffel Flower, 11 W. Campbell St., alongside his wife, Denise Brown.Pioneer Press recently visited with Brown, who as a florist and purveyor of high-end coffees, teas and chocolates, was busy stocking his shelves in anticipation of Valentine's Day.Q: For starters, how did you come up with the name, The Eiffel Flower?A: Well, it's kind of a long answer. But I used to design the centerpieces for the St. James (Catholic Church) Jubilation events, which are their annual fundraiser. They sent me a thank-you note with the Eiffel Tower on it, and I started to think 'Eiffel Flower' would be a great name for a business. I had a brief stint own... http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/arlington-heights/news/ct-ahp-shout-out-mike-brown-tl-0208-20180201-story.html

Hometown Holidays Open House revives downtown tradition - North County OutlookTuesday, December 05, 2017
The city of Arlington and local businesses helped to revive an old downtown tradition featuring fire pits, s'mores and holiday cheer on Olympic Avenue with the Hometown Holidays Open House on Nov. 25.A portion of the downtown street was closed off for fire pits while the Arlington High School band provided holiday music during the evening and many downtown businesses opened their doors for extended evening hours.The event was a joint effort between the city of Arlington, the Arlington Smokey Point Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Arlington Business Association.Local businesses also chose Nov. 25 to hold the Hometown Holidays Open House because it was Small Business Saturday, a national day meant to celebrate small businesses.Many merchants on Olympic Avenue were open for the event, despite it being later than usual for them."I've talked to a couple of the stores and they've been busy all day," said Christy Brubaker, secretary and treasurer for the Downtown Arlington Business Association.

Petal Talk - Columbus MonthlyTuesday, August 15, 2017
Peonies are a popular request for weddings and carry hefty symbolism, says Liz Kemmerer, wedding and event coordinator for Bloomtastic Florist in Upper Arlington.“They're a lush, full sort of rounded-bloom flower,” Kemmerer says. “They usually mean romance, prosperity; they also can represent an omen of good fortune and a happy marriage.”But if you want a peony in your wedding, be aware: “Sadly, they're only available for a very short time period, so we work mostly with May and June brides with peonies,” Kemmerer says.“Almost anything goes” when it comes to wedding flowers, says Kim Meacham, owner of The Paper Daisy Flower Boutique in the Short North. However, “roses are still super traditional, especially beautiful garden roses, because they have such a lovely scent,” she adds. “Roses in general just evoke that feeling of love.”Roses as a whole symbolize beauty, says Kemmerer, adding that specific colors have other nuances associated with them.“Red, obviously, means love, romance,” she says. “Then white can mean purity or innocence. ‘Bridal white,' as we would call it, means happy love; light pink is admiration, joy, sweetness. And coral means desire,” she says.Kemmerer says her favorite floral meaning comes from the anemone. “Their symbolism basically means excitement for the future, anticipation. So that's a fun flower to involve in a wedding,” she says. And with 120 different species, to-be-weds will have plenty of variety to choose from when including anemones in bouquets, centerpieces and boutonnières. A winter-spring flower, anemones typically are available as early as October and as late as April.Other ... http://www.columbusmonthly.com/lifestyle/20170724/petal-talk
