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

America's Most Beautiful Botanical Gardens - CBS SacramentoWednesday, April 11, 2018
Brooklyn Botanic Garden990 Washington AvenueBrooklyn, NY 11225(718) 623-7200www.bbg.orgFree admission on weekdays may be coming to a seasonal end but the best time of year to visit the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is just around the corner. Although not nearly as large or nearly as famous as the New York Botanical Garden, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden (BBG) does have some clear bragging rights of its own, especially when it hosts Sakura Matsuri on April 28-29, the famed annual cherry blossom festival that’s been described by the New York Times as the “biggest event in an American public garden”. But before then, nearly 200 cherry blossom trees are expected to begin blooming in late March or early April within the Garden and coincides with the arrival of the bright yellow trumpet daffodils that will blanket Daffodil Hill and dazzle its earlier springtime visitors. Spread across 52 glorious acres in the heart of Brooklyn, the BBG features several specialty gardens to consider as part of a spring tour, such as Magnolia Plaza, Osborne Garden and Shakespeare Garden which will all feature peaking blooms in March and throughout the season. The BBG is easily accessible via the Metro, with two stations nearby and an added plus is the opportunity to visit the prestigious Brooklyn Museum, which is practically surrounded by the Botanical Gardens and very close to the main entrance.Related: Visit These 5 European Castles Without Leaving The StatesDallas Arboretum & Botanical Garden8525 Garland RoadDallas, TX 75218(214) 5... http://sacramento.cbslocal.com/2018/03/14/americas-most-beautiful-botanical-gardens/
