Florist opens Nativity and Christmas Expo after recovering from major storm damage - WWAY NewsChannel 3Wednesday, December 11, 2019
COLUMBUS COUNTY (WWAY) — A holiday tradition in our area is making a big comeback this year.It is called the Tabor City Nativity and Christmas Expo. Hurricanes Matthew and Florence caused $20,000 worth of damages to the store.- Advertisement - Now, it is back in business.From the outside looking in, you’d never think there could be so many depictions of the birth of Jesus Christ. Owner Rodney Gore says he is proud to show them off.“No matter how ugly or how pretty they are, they’re still Jesus,” Gore said.Gore is a florist by trade, but he’s also known around town as the man with the nativity scenes.“I also collect Madonnas, and I also collect the flight when they went into Egypt,” Gore expressed.He has thousands of pieces in his shop.“If it’s one that I don’t have then I buy it, and of course everything has a price tag on it, but here, everything is equal,” Gore said.Last year Gore was not able to display his treasures because of damage from the previous storms.However, this year, he’s back and now in a new store, ready to share the “reason for the season” with everyone who walks through his doors.“I just wonder how many people it has touched to know... https://www.wwaytv3.com/2019/11/27/florist-opens-nativity-and-christmas-expo-after-recovering-from-major-storm-damage/
Bloom & Plume's Maurice Harris Reimagines Black Art - ComplexTuesday, November 19, 2019
POST CONTINUES BELOWWhile Harris is aware that the art he creates stands as a luxury and most of his clients are wealthy—he has designed floral installations for everyone from Ava DuVernay to Florence and the Machine to Vogue—he is clear on the power of beauty and has selected it as his weapon of choice. “I think that beautiful things allow us to dream, allow us to escape, allow us to hope and aspire towards other things,” Harris remarks. This belief prompted Harris to extend his brand to a community cafe, Bloom & Plume Coffee, which he owns and runs alongside his brother. Opened earlier this year, the coffee shop employs Black and Brown members of the queer community, and is thoughtfully decorated with Harris’s artwork and aesthetic. It falls in line with Harris’s mantra that “we are only what we see.” Hitting several marks, the shop not only brings awareness and visibility to LGBTQIA people, it provides Harris’s non-elite customers the affordable luxury of coffee in a beautiful space and an opportunity to experience his work.More recently, an even broader community has gotten to sample Harris’s creativity thanks to his current Microsoft Surface campaign, which showcases how technology helps enhance Harris’s vision. “As organic as I like to be, you have to stay organized,” he explains. "And as much as people want to trust your creativity, they want to see a mood board; they want to see a rendering; they want to see something that allows them to have an insight into what's in my brain." ComplexCon attendees got to witness Harris's creativity firsthand at his Microsoft activation, where he incorporated several beautifully-designed floral arrangements into the booth, providing the perfect backdrop for attendees to not only capture great photo moments but also utilize the Surface to enhance them live on the convention floor. The overall experience was a direct reflection of Harris’s core mission of providing people with the power of freedom. “When I think about my values and things that are important to me—and freedom being the thing that’s my vibe—I felt like this partnership really encouraged that. They’ve really been celebrating my creativity and aligning myself with a company that is about that is kind of cool,” he says. “The thing that bums me out is that we do such beautiful work and it's so rare that many people get to see it, but brands like [Microsoft and Complex] create platforms for so many people to be engaged with the magic of what flowers can do. And that’s really beautiful and exciting to me.”TO SEE HOW HARRIS’S COMPLEXCON ACTIVATION CAME IN TO FULL BLOOM, BE SURE TO WATCH THE VIDEO ABOVE AND FOR MORE INSIGHT ON HIS INSPIRATION AND CREATIVITY, WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW.POST CONTINUES BELOWLet's block ads!

Small Business Spotlight: E. Stephen Hein - www.smileypete.comSunday, February 28, 2021
Pemberton’s to open his own shop.
Today, Hein’s floral shop has turned into a true family affair, with his granddaughter, Kelsey Hein Smith, having worked alongside him since graduating from Eastern Kentucky University in 2017. A floral designer and the store’s social media manager, Smith calls her grandfather PoPo – except during business hours.
“It’s weird to call him Steve,” she admitted.
Thoughtful, artistic expression has always been appreciated in the floral business, and remains a staple of Hein’s business model. While centerpieces and corsages are less common than they were at the start of his business, sending flowers across town – or even across the country – remains a popular action, and Hein can help with both. Some of his loyal clients utilize his services not only for local flower delivery but also to coordinate out-of-state arrangements for funerals or special occasions.
“We know what to say to the other florist, the dos and don’ts of what to use and what not to use,” Hein said, explaining that his clients appreciate his specific aesthetic. His penchant for communicating the specifics of that aesthetic when “calling out” orders to other florists hasn’t gone unnoticed, as the shop has often been lauded for orders that Hein helps coordinate across the country.
Former and fellow florists have also expressed their gratitude to Hein over the years.
“They have told me that when I set up shop in Lexington in 1987, I raised the bar for what florists do to make a show with their flower arrangements,” he said. “I thought that was a very nice compliment.”
E. Stephen Hein Florist is located at 380 E. Second St. More info is available at www.estephenheinflorist.com.
Calif. flower shop with no connection to Capitol riot flooded with threats, negative reviews - SFGateSunday, January 17, 2021
Alberti’s business appeared to have been removed from the platform. However, Cudd’s business also has a 4.6 rating.) Two other florists bearing the same name in Kentucky and Scotland were burdened with similar harassment. Alberti said all of them have given up on deleting the comments, and are instead attempting to respond to each one in order to set the record straight. “I offered to send some people maps of the United States,” joked Alberti. “Most people apologize and then they reverse, but some are steadfast. My thing is, I understand the need to vent and get rid of that hostility, but just spend an extra five seconds of time to see that we’re not in Texas. The very platforms that these people are using to type these rants and tirades … it would take them less time to find out we’re not that business than it would take for them to write the post.” He’s concerned about what the future holds for his business, which has been around since 1973 and spans four generations. “We’re just trying to survive,” said Alberti. “Being a florist is hard enough. We don’t have a high profit margin. We do it because we love it and love flowers. To already be suffering through COVID and add this on top of it, it’s stressful.” source srcset="https://s.hdnux.com/photos/01/16/13/46/20494742/3/700x0.jpg 1x, https://s.hdnux.com/photos/01/16/13/46/20... https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Beckys-Flowers-Roseville-mistaken-Capitol-rioter-15871654.php

KOSA. Death threats have been left for Cudd at her flower shop, she told KOSA. Other businesses with similar names to "Becky's Flowers" across the country have also been targeted. In Kentucky, Becky's Flower Basket has received backlash even though its business has no affiliation with Cudd's Texas shop, according to a WKYT report. Amber Sergent told the Kentucky television station her family has been swamped with angry calls from people who are confusing them with Cudd's business. "Very violent language, I'll put it that way," Sergent said. The FBI had not listed the exact charges Cudd faces as of Wednesday afternoon.
