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
Crystal City Florist's Business Blooms Around Valentine's Day - ARL nowTuesday, February 27, 2018
Much of their business comes from party work for the businesses and hotels in Crystal City.Flowers With Love is one of only a few florists in Arlington, according to Hossini, but having competition from elsewhere in the county is actually a good thing around Valentine’s Day, when there are sometimes just too many orders to fill at the last minute for one store.“We can only do so much, and everyone wants flowers,” said Hossini.
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.

Be Local when preparing for prom - Uniontown Herald StandardTuesday, May 01, 2018
March and April being the busiest time — especially for seamstresses who make alterations. Lovat said her shop, which also carries silk flowers, receives customers from as far away as West Virginia and Ohio.This year’s trends for prom include mermaid gowns with a fluffy bottom as well as a two-piece gown that includes a separated bodice and skirt.“Some like the plain but more like the bling,’’ said Lovat. “Then they get the accessories: shoes and jewelry. It all has to blend in.’’Popular jewelry pieces include rose gold and blue sapphire, Lovat said, while popular colors for gowns this year include black, gray, white and champagne.Regarding tuxedos, Ptak said, “Basic black is still used but many are going for fashionable colors in the blue family: navy, cobalt and indigo. Slim-fitting pants are almost a must for those who like and can wear it. Slim-fitting tuxedos are extremely popular. It’s the look you see on TV: a shorter coat and slim fit is very popular.’’Ptak said many youths want to coordinate with their date’s outfit but some want their own looks. Matching vests are as popular as colored vests.“What’s really popular are bow ties,’’ said Ptak, noting some even choose plaid and multi colors.He observed that where youths came in alone or with their dates in the past, today it becomes a family event with lots of photographs taken.Photographs are also popular at hair salons where many youths are experiencing their first formal hairstyle.“Braids are in at the moment,’’ said Morriston. “But it’s usually an updo where you curl and pin everything.’’Morriston said hairdressers can add glitter or a piece the youths bring in, such as a broach, to accessorize the young lady’s hair.Don’t wait too long to order flowers as Steve Neubauer, of Neubauer’s Flowers in Uniontown, noted many proms are taking place over Mother’s Day weekend, already a busy time for florists. Order early to find the best selection of flowers.When you do order, there’s a variety of choices.“Hand-tied nosegays are the most popular this year,’’ said Neubauer, “followed by wrist corsages and arm bouquets.’’As for colors, Neubauer said, “With technology, everybody has plenty of colors. The colors are as varied as the dr...
This Virginia Farm Will Have Thousands of Tulips in Bloom This Weekend - Washingtonian.comTuesday, May 01, 2018
Dawley calls it “the great tulip tragedy of 2018.” But don’t let that deter you from what could be a pleasant outing in the country, and some colorful Instagram posts.Every year, Burnside Farms in Virginia plants one million tulip bulbs for its pick-your-own spring festival. It’s an idea that Dawley, a former florist who once owned Hedgerows in McLean, germinated—and she says it’s now one of the largest pick-your-own tulip farms in the world. But after the Haymarket farmland Dawley was using was sold by the owner to developers, Dawley and her son, Mike, had to find new land for their flowers. They found it in Nokesville, about an hour’s drive from DC.Moving a farm, as you can imagine, is no easy task. You don’t know the land intimately, nor the vagaries of the growing conditions. The one million bulbs went into the ground. By January, all looked rooted and well. Then, says Leslie, the spring rains came. And came. Half the field, it turned out, was too low-lying and the standing water wouldn’t drain. The bulbs in that section were lost—around 400,000 of them, she says. Almost half.Some 600,000 tulips in bloom—almost four acres—is still a lot. They’re due to peak this coming weekend, May 5 and 6. Visi...
