After 2017 fire, Blue Iris Flowers coming back to Catonsville - Baltimore SunWednesday, April 11, 2018
We just think it’s wonderful to have Blue Iris back,” said Teal Cary, director of the Catonsville Chamber of Commerce. “We need a Frederick Road florist.”Cary said that two years ago, the Chamber awarded Glascock with the “Retailer of the Year” award, because of quality service and Glascock’s efforts to fix up the old building before it was destroyed by fire.The two-alarm fire last year started in the basement and burned through the upper levels of the more than 100-year-old three-story building, Baltimore County Fire Department Battalion Chief Blaine Kurrle told the Baltimore Sun last year. The building was empty at the time and no one was injured.Cary said she will bring the ribbon and the big scissors for the ribbon cutting, taking place at 10 a.m. on Monday, April 16.Glascock said thatafter the ceremony, the shop will be open for business throughout the day. Then in the evening, sometime after about 6 p.m., she said the shop will host an open house celebration with wine and snacks.The shop is known for its fresh-cut flowers, and Glascock said this time of year she is busiest filling wedding orders.Shoppers familiar with Blue Iris will see some new products, Glascock said, including locally or U.S.-made gift items, air plants, greeting cards and jewelry.Looking forward, Glascock hopes to stock a wider selection of easy-care indoor plants, like succulents and cacti.Glascock praised the Chamber and the Catonsville community for making her return possible.“Honestly, the entire community of Catonsville has rallied around us,” Glascock said. “People who we’ve never met before found us and rallied around us over the past year – following us to Arbutus, sticking by us, just generally being there for us.”“We’re excited to be back,” Glascock said. http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/baltimore-county/catonsville/ph-ca-at-blue-iris-0411-story.html

How to Save on Wedding Flowers - New York TimesWednesday, April 11, 2018
The founders of Bloomerent, Julia Capalino, left, and Danit Zamir, right, with the florist Carly Ragosta, demonstrating how flowers are reused from the first wedding to the next.When Nathalie Guedes and her husband, Christopher Zardoya, were planning their wedding at 501 Union in Brooklyn, they knew they wanted flowers — and lots of them. “We’re both from Miami, so we’re used to tropical plants and flowers everywhere,” she said. Still, they didn’t want to spend too much money. Centerpieces and bouquets are often thrown away after the night ends, and as architects, they believe strongly in sustainability.“Weddings can be so wasteful, so we tried to reuse as much as we could,” said Ms. Guedes, who budgeted $2,000 for florals. She and her husband used discarded squares of marble from finished architectural projects to make decorative table number plaques and seating number assignments. Then Ms. Guedes discovered Bloomerent, a company that finds ways for brides and grooms to share wedding flowers. “We loved that our flowers would have a second life,” she said. And, of co...
