Making Arrangements art exhibit explores the many moods of floral design at Goodyear Arts - CLTureSaturday, January 18, 2020
Goodyear Arts. The show will feature works from regional artists as well as artists from Philadelphia, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, and Richmond. Curator Rebecca Henderson said of the show and its title, “I wanted to be able to communicate the duality of the work [the show] contains. Yes, there is a bouquet: the colorful beauty, a tantalizing expression and a bold optimism. But there are also those arrangements whose wilting marks the fragility and banality of living– that the days simply pass.” Henderson has made a name for herself in a variety of ways around Charlotte. She co-curated the 2016 show Unibrow with local sculpture artist Grace Stott, continues to co-curate a mobile and accessibility-driven gallery, Wheeling Art Dealing, and just last year started Southern Ladies Arm Wrestling (an inclusive arm wrestling league open to all femme-identifying folks). Henderson is active in the arts community and handpicked each artist based off the content, concept, or context of their work as it pertains to the Making Arrangements curatorial proposal. Art by Corey Pemberton“This is a group exhibition which reflects on the exquisite task of balancing living alongside the tender clutter of having lived. Beyond unifying floral imagery, themes of joyful resistance, common nostalgia and conflicted sentimentality also run through the work,” Henderson said. “This show was my opportunity to experiment with how to approach curatorial work as a kind of temporal bouquet. Many methods of floral design exist in this beautiful space between language and mathematics, and as a curator, I wanted to challenge myself to work within this same balancing framework.”Making Arrangements opens at Goodyear Arts on Friday, January 10 from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. and features work from Amy Bagwell, Corey Pemberton, Dennissa Young, Garrett Alan Fees, Grac... https://clture.org/making-arrangement-art-exhibit/

Stinnett: Henderson floral shop marks 90 years - The GleanerTuesday, July 23, 2019
HENDERSON, Ky. - In late 1977, Larry Dixon was a journeyman union bricklayer who had also been trained in welding and blueprint reading. He had a good job with a company in Evansville. He was not intending to go to work for his father-in-law’s florist shop, Shaw’s Flowers. Except that the Tri-state was in the midst of one of two historic back-to-back winters that dumped prodigious amounts of snow, making outdoor construction work temporarily scarce. Walter Shaw, father of Dixon’s wife, Cynthia, needed help and promised him a steady paycheck. “He said, ‘Cindy someday is going to take over the business. You need to learn it.’ ” Dixon agreed to try it, but said if the work didn’t suit him, he wouldn’t stay. More than 40 years later, Larry Dixon is still working at the shop with his wife (who started there full-time in 1972) and their veteran staff. But even that doesn’t begin to touch the full history of Shaw’s Flowers, which traces itself back to 1928 and this month celebrates its 90th anniversary, making it the oldest florist — and one of the oldest businesses — in Henderson. The Shaw history of gardening and selling flowers goes back at least six generations to 19th-century Germany, when the family name was spelled Zschau. Three Zschau brothers who ha... https://www.thegleaner.com/story/news/2018/11/15/stinnett-henderson-floral-shop-marks-90-years/1996720002/
How to Make Trader Joe's Flowers Look Expensive - Alstroemeria Bouquet Tutorial - HouseBeautiful.comTuesday, July 09, 2019
It's a stylist's first trick for instantly pulling a room together—something Emily Henderson first revealed to me years ago. At House Beautiful, things are no different. Style director Robert Rufino has been arranging flowers ever since he was a kid—"It's something I've always loved to do," he says—and at this point, he could pluck dandelions out of your yard and make them look chic. He styles the flowers for most HB shoots, so we decided to put him to the test: Could he take discount flowers from Trader Joe's and make them look as fabulous as the ones he gathers from New York's top flower markets? After scoring three bunches of Alstroemeria for $4 apiece—putting our total investment to $12—Robert grabbed a wide, low vase and got to work, creating a bouquet that rivaled ones you could spend $35-$40 on from a local florist. Here's exactly what he did. Brad Holland First, Choose Your Color Palette.A single color is always a safe bet, but for more of a conversation piece—which we were going for here—Robert recommends blending three shades of the same flow... https://www.housebeautiful.com/entertaining/flower-arrangements/a27583792/trader-joes-flower-arrangement-tutorial-video/
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.
Florist Who Bragged About Entering Nancy Pelosis Office Charged - Patch.comSunday, January 17, 2021
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.

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
