Phto by Jim Russi (JimRussi.com)by Kevin CodyJust four hours prior to the Monday 7 a.m. deadline for entries in the 90th Annual May Day Lei Celebration, Kahiwalani Miller told her older sister Leilani Kanaauao Huggins, “You haven’t come all the way from Redondo Beach to enter just two leis. Make one more. I’ll stay up with you and cut flowers.” Kahiwalani suggested her sister make a papale, or hat lei, because they are 22-inches and quicker to make than an a’i or neck lei, which must be 30- to 36-inches. In addition to length, the rules required “All lei shall be made with natural plant materials and limited to flowers, leaves, stems, roots, fruits, and seeds.”Huggins had flown to Hawaii a week earlier with Pat Shimamoto of Hawthorne, one of her lei students. They were staying with her cousins in Maunalani, a Honolulu suburb. Their first few days were spent...

Citizen of the Year: Catlins fantastic florist - Champaign/Urbana News-GazetteTuesday, January 08, 2019
Danville, where she met her husband, Tim, then a manager trainee.She and Tim married in May 1987. That October, Tim's job with the department store took them to Iowa and then Nebraska, Kansas, Wyoming and Minnesota. In Nebraska, Welsh — who continued to work as a florist out west — directed community theater, served on the Miss Nebraska Pageant board of directors and directed the pageant for three years. In Wyoming, she was involved with the Cheyenne Frontier Days, billed as the world's largest outdoor rodeo and western celebration.In 2004, the couple and their young son, Tanner, moved back to Catlin to be near family. A couple of years later, Welsh opened Floral-n-Flair, a flower shop and event-planning business, in the same downtown building she started out in. She and business partner Kay Smoot also own and operate a gift boutique called Pauline's Attic.Welsh was working one evening when Stutsman popped in."Who got it, and how are we going to decorate?" she asked, thinking he'd stopped by to discuss the Citizen of the Year banquet at the Methodist Church, which she decorates.She was floored by his answer."It still hasn't sunk in," she said, the day before the banquet.While honored, Welsh was quick to acknowledge her "crew," including local high school students and residents who help her set up for community events, weddings and parties — and family. Tanner, who turns 21 this month, has autism, and Tim is his full-time caregiver and still finds time to help out at work."I wouldn't be able to do any of this without him," she said."It's always been a team effort," she continued, adding she learned that from her dad who helped out in many ways at the shop and home before he passed away a couple of years ago.Welsh recalled sitting at the family table years ago after her brother became a 1,000-yard rusher on his high school football team."My dad pointed to his picture on the front of the sports page and said, 'He wouldn't have done that without his line that blocked for him.' I've always remembered that. You can't do it alone. You have to surround yourself with good people and work as a team."... http://www.news-gazette.com/noelle-mcgee/2018-11-01/citizen-the-year-catlins-fantastic-florist.html

How an Ecuadorian rose makes the journey to your American sweetheart for Valentine's Day - The Denver PostSunday, February 11, 2018
Wholesale Florist in north Denver. Amato broke into the wholesale business in January 1974. (The company started as a carnation grower in 1958.) It ships flowers across Colorado, but also to Kansas, Wyoming and Nebraska.President and CEO Heather Weickum was born in that first year. She grew up roller skating on the warehouse’s concrete floors after hours. Her father was a co-founder and eventually became the sole owner of the business.“This place was my only sibling growing up,” she said.Now Weickum runs the company and employs 70 people. Amato projects it will sell 130,000 stems of flowers over the Valentine’s holiday, tallying up hundreds of thousands of dollars in profit. The most popular varieties of roses can cost a retailer more than $70 a bunch.Amato can stock several hundred varieties of flowers at a time in the warehouse, and more than half of those are roses. They come in a rainbow of hues and gaggle of names, many inspired by the flower breeder’s daughter, mother or lover. Some names, such as Hot Nina, Lola and Jessika, call to mind an old flame. Others read like perfume ads tucked in a magazine: Pearl Avalanche, Sweet Unique, Cool Water. And then there are the names that beckon to whom they’re selling: Sweetness, Engagement, Soulmate. Rose breeders trademark these names and can receive royalties from other plantations that grow their variety.Most roses are natives of Ecuador. The year-round sunshine and high-altitude...
