'Shark Tank' investment Alice's Table blossoms in Cape Coral, Southwest Florida - The News-PressTuesday, April 16, 2019
Beck is the second in Florida to sign on, the other in St. Petersburg. Peggy Davis, of Bonita Springs, celebrated her birthday with two daughters, Tara Adragna of Naples and Danielle Maiero of Bonita Springs, at the ice cream shop. "I'm a flower fanatic," she said. "This was fantastic." Alice's Table joins the ranks of painting on canvas, jewelry making and personalizing wine glasses among the friends nights out in Southwest Florida. The franchises of national chains set up at homes, restaurants, bars and community centers for nights out where they provide instruction and all the needed materials to create art. "I saw Alice's Table on 'Shark Tank' when it aired in January," Beck said. "And when I wanted to take a class, I went onto the website and noticed there wasn't a single class listed for 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... https://www.news-press.com/story/news/2018/04/28/shark-tank-investment-alices-table-blossoms-cape-coral-southwest-florida/510159002/

Holiday traditions continue with The Nutcracker at Bridges - Claremont CourierTuesday, November 28, 2017
You don’t want to miss these inspiring dancers who all bring fresh and unique qualities to their roles.”The Nutcracker was first presented in 1892 at the Maryinsky Theater in St. Petersburg, Russia. The ballet was an adaptation of the 1816 story, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, by E.T.A. Hoffman. The ballet was choreographed by Lev Ivanov with music by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Marius Petipa, the reigning choreographer at the Maryinsky, fell ill, so the job passed to Ivanov. Tchaikovsky only reluctantly accepted the commission to compose the score which, when completed, he considered “infinitely worse than Sleeping Beauty.”At the premiere, the ballet was deemed a complete failure. More than 60 years and many productions would pass before The Nutcracker would become a staple of the repertoire in ballet companies around the world and one of the universal traditions of the holiday season.IPB’s educational outreach program, “A Young Person’s Guide to the Ballet,” is back this season for students from local area schools. Students are encouraged to participate in simple movement activities in their seats and then view the professional ballet performance, followed by a question and answer session. Teachers also have access to a free study guide to continue the conversation back in the classroom with pre- and post-performance activities aligned through the California State Content Standards for Dance, California Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and the California English Language Development Standards. For many of these students, this will be the first time they get to experience live performance art, being in a theater and learning about ballet.Children’s tickets for IPB’s The Nutcracker start at $23, senior tickets start at $38 and adult tickets start at $41, with premium seats at $59. Group discounts are available.Performances take place from December 9 and 10 at 2 p.m. and December 9 at 7:30 p.m. at Bridges Auditorium at Pomona College, 450 N. College Way, in Claremont.Additional regional performances are offered on December 15 and 16 at 7:30 p.m. and December 16 and 17 at 2 p.m. at Lewis Family Playhouse in Rancho Cucamonga; and December 22 and 23 at 7:30 p.m. and December 23 at 2 p.m. at the Fox Performing Arts Center in Riverside.For more information or to purchase tickets, visit ipballet.org.

Be Local when preparing for prom - Uniontown Herald StandardTuesday, May 01, 2018
Christmas with 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...
