Get Your Floral Fix and Help Sustain the Rhode Island Flower Economy - Providence MediaThursday, April 02, 2020
Flower delivery and curbside pick-up seems to be the new normal,” says Jeffrey Kerkhoff of Jephry Floral Studio in Providence. Kerkhoff has been busy turning his Broadway store “inside out” to showcase every product from his shop windows enabling customers to browse from the safety of the sidewalk. “Change necessitates innovation, and we are working to adapt the way we do business to both keep our employees and customers safe, as well as continue to serve our customers and employ our staff through this crisis,” notes Kerhhoff, who has also been adding items to his online shop.In the East Bay, Anna Jane Kocon, owner of Little State Flower Company, has been ramping up for a season essentially put on hold. “We’ve been growing flowers and plants all winter preparing for spring,” she begins. “The flowers we are selling are visions of hard work, healthy grown product, and a women-owned business pushing hard to be creative under difficulty to offer something simple and positive: beauty. There is beauty in the now, and I can at least offer that,” says Kocon. “We are thrilled to share this beauty as safely as possible.”A sea of daffodils may be blooming in Bristol at Blithewold Mansions, Gardens & Arboretum but the venue has dutifully postponed all upcoming private events, classes, and programs.

Florists will ask you to 'Petal' It Forward Wednesday - WLNE-TV (ABC6)Saturday, January 18, 2020
Twitter: @BComakABC6 PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) - On the streets of Providence Wednesday will be a sight having you ask, 'What in carnation?' "It can change somebody's whole day," said Owner of Frey Florist and Greenhouse Richard Espeut. "That's what we're trying to do - trying to change someone's day." Espeut and his team will be on Kennedy Plaza Wednesday morning handing out 400 stems of flowers - for free. "First people are skeptical of it," explained Espeut, who says they've been doing it the last four years. "And they say like, 'Well how much are they?' Or, 'I'm not buying these.' And we say 'No, no, no they're free.'" It's part of the Society of American Florists campaign to 'Petal' It Forward. Folks Wednesday will be handed two stems of flowers: one they're supposed to keep, and another they're supposed to give away. "This is a way to reach out to people that maybe no one ever gives them a flower," said Espeut. So what's the point? According to the Society of American Florists, it's to demonstrate rese... https://www.abc6.com/story/41218548/florists-will-ask-you-to-petal-it-forward-wednesday

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
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.
