Flowers are a passion for Hannah Warfield at Brown's Floral Design - ThetribunepapersSunday, February 11, 2018
Weaverville. Brown’s Floral Design is well established and has been in the area since 1926 and at its current location on Main Street since 1976.Having grown up farming and gardening, Hannah Warfield finds that Western North Carolina is an ideal place to grow the flowers she loves. She gained her love of gardening from her mother and grandmother and remembers tending old fashioned cutting gardens as a small child. She is drawn to heirloom flowers like zinnias, anemone, love-in-a-mist, peonies, sunflowers, antique roses and native wildflowers. Hannah now grows many of these in her home garden in Reems Creek Valley, which she bought in 2012 because of the fertile, creekside soil. She now brings home-grown greenery and blossoms to 25 North Main Street in Weaverville to use in her floral bouquets. She calls herself a “Farmer/Florist,” a term used to describe this background in both growing and design.After graduating from Appalachian State in 2002, Hannah managed the grounds and wedding/events at Tuckahoe Plantation, the boyhood home of Thomas Jefferson in Richmond, Virginia. (www.tuckahoeplantation.com) There she tended 7 acres of formal estate gardens, cutting gardens for wholesale and fell in love with historic garden restoration. Her career at Tuckahoe grew to include managing weddings and developing her talent for wedding floral design... http://www.thetribunepapers.com/2018/02/01/flowers-are-a-passion-for-hannah-warfield-at-browns-floral-design/

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.”

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.
