NJ florist died trying to save stranger in Point Pleasant Beach surf - Asbury Park PressTuesday, October 24, 2017
Glen Carullo if they knew the tiny northern Jersey borough of Ho-Ho-Kus. After all, Carullo and his wife, Margaret, had owned Ho-Ho-Kus Flowers & Gifts on Sheridan Avenue for more than 35 years."I tell my wife this can't be possible," Jesse Carullo said Tuesday. "It's like a movie. It's kind of like a dream, a different time zone, whatever. And then every day you realize that he's gone."More: 2017 recorded most rip current-related fatalitiesMore: Why Eatontown man risked all to save drowning boxer in Long BranchJesse Carullo recounted some things that stuck out to him Sunday. Glen Carullo's truck was left in the beach parking lot, Jesse Carullo said. Someone had to go pick that up. Two beach chairs — Glen and Margaret's — were still opened on the sand, unmoved, as if hardly any time had passed at all. And as Margaret Carullo accompanied her husband on an emergency trip to the hospital, she had a red Elmo toy tucked into her purse. Earlier that Sunday, before heading down to the beach, the couple had eaten lunch at Martell's Tiki Bar on Jenkinson's Boardwalk before twiddling with the claw machines, Jesse Carullo said.Glen Carullo had aimed for one of the plush toys clustered at the bottom of the claw machine, a kaleidoscope of technicolor and fake fur.The claw dangled, dipped, seized a stuffed Elmo, and, in uncharacteristic claw machine fashion, hoisted the toy up and out of the machine in one move.Glen Carullo then held Elmo in one hand, pointed to the toy with an opposite finger, and smiled jubilantly for a picture.

(Photo: Courtesy of Jesse Carullo)He and Margaret decided this Elmo would be the first toy they would give to their first grandchild, due in March, Jesse Carullo said. Margaret Carullo stowed Elmo in her bag for safekeeping.That picture of Glen Carullo with Elmo was the last photo he would ever take. Jesse Carullo uploaded the picture Tuesday to his own Facebook page as a dedication to his brother. As brothers, they were close, and not just in age, as they were only one year and 11 months apart, Jesse Carullo said. In childhood, growing up in Wood-Ridge, this was how it went: If Glen did something, Jesse did it... http://www.app.com/story/news/crime/jersey-mayhem/2017/09/27/glen-carullo-bergen-county-florist-ocean-county-hero/706078001/

Go ahead: Steal Newark designer's flower arranging tips - The News JournalTuesday, November 08, 2016
This autumn arrangement was put together under Theresa Clower’s guidance, following her advice to make nature your own.(Photo: Courtesy of Moira Sheridan)When you see Theresa Clower in action, it comes as no surprise that she’s an award-winning floral designer.Owner and principal designer of Theresa Floral Design, she works out of her home studio in Newark with her goldendoodle, Jeff, close by. Moving at warp speed she cuts, strips, bends, binds and weaves random flowers into an art form fit for a magazine cover.When I visited her on a rainy morning last week, she guided me through the process in a sort of master class/coffee klatch during which she shared wisdom and insights.Clower’s philosophy toward her art comes up again and again: “Use what’s available in nature, but make it your own, alter it in some way. People take things from their garden and think they have to re-create what it looked like out there and the reality is it’s much more interesting if you don’t. Cutting things a certain way, placing them a certain way – that’s the art of it.”Since I’m guilty of cutting and plunking without a thought to design or creativit... http://www.delawareonline.com/story/life/home-garden/backyard-gardener/2016/11/02/go-ahead-steal-newark-designers-flower-arranging-tips/93168130/

And with that milestone, the owners recognize the three generations of florists that came with it.Today you will find the mother-daughter duo of Michelle Rosenthal and Heidi Parker in the back of the shop putting together assorted arrangements of vibrant flowers.Rosenthal learned the art of flower arrangement from her Aunt Babe.

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...
