Roses — in full bloom - Financial TimesTuesday, September 10, 2019
Miuccia Prada’s witty and twisted examination of the light and dark of romance. The “gown full of ‘em” is surely one of the show-stopping dresses by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen, where scarlet, pink and white silk taffeta explode like a rose in full bloom.There are more, for the rose is a talented muse and she can encapsulate many moods. One of her more reflective moments during fashion month came at the Chanel show, the first since the death of Karl Lagerfeld, when the actress Penélope Cruz walked the catwalk in white, wearing a black bow in her hair and carrying a single white rose in honour of her late friend. Alexander McQueen AW19 But the rose is, perhaps unsurprisingly, used more frequently in reference to love and romance this season. Flirty, spriggy rosebud prints appear on sexy satin skirts at Paco Rabanne. At Valentino, roses are a recurring theme on prints in a show that could not have been — with its specially commissioned poetry by Greta Bellamacina — more loved up. London designer Richard Quinn, a rapidly rising star, went loud and splashy with his overblown roses, where modern day ball gowns are subverted with latex gloves and boots like some champagne-blasted punks charging the Chelsea Flower Show. Marc Jacobs applied generous amounts of Miracle-Gro to his silk rose sashes, corsages and chokers; so gigantically do they swell off his satiny dresses and blouses, they morph later in his collection into rose dresses, turning those who wear them into a woman-sized bloom. 'Bouquet of Flowers in a Glass beside a Tobacco Pot', by Jean Baptiste Camille Corot © Bridgeman Images And the roses keep on coming. Some 26 of Dries Van Noten’s catwalk looks bore a rose motif. The Belgian designer and passionate gardener often employs floral prints and embroidery.

Volunteers band together to revive recycled-bouquet program - Palo Alto OnlineTuesday, January 08, 2019
We heard about (the closure of Random Acts of Flowers) and decided to reach out and let the volunteers know we planned to do the same mission here," said Jyllian Halliburton, volunteer program manager at Avenidas in Palo Alto.
"We started to get contacted by the volunteers and we got about 30-plus volunteers reaching out to us. They were just so excited."
For now, Avenidas has made space for flower sorting and arranging in a large classroom at its Cubberley Community Center site every Wednesday, but workers are already agitating for more days of the week. Some said they additionally volunteer at one of two other known spinoffs of Random Acts of Flowers: Blossom Buddies in Menlo Park and Flowers of Comfort in San Jose.
Many of the volunteers have maintained their earlier relationships with local donor retailers, florists and markets.
"There's nothing that excites us as much as a bucket of day-old or week-old flowers," said Palo Alto resident Barbara Levin, as the group cheered the arrival of a new bucket of leftovers from Mills Florist. Levin is a longtime volunteer who routinely collects cast-offs from Trader Joe's in Palo Alto. Others pick up from Trader Joe's in Menlo Park and a branch of Whole Foods.
"We never know what flowers or vases we're going to have to work with, so every time we come in it's a new and interesting experience and it's a way of showing off our creative side," Levin said.
The women have no trouble unpacking funeral wreaths and other event-specific arrangements to "create something more interesting," Klause said. But in some cases the used flowers are not fresh enough for a second life and must be discarded.
Volunteer Sandra Bachman, a Woodside resident, said her favorite place to deliver is Stanford University Hospital.
"To go in and see patients that do not have any flowers or visitors and walk in with a bouquet and for five minutes they forget about their problems," Bachman said. "They open their eyes and to get that smile, and to hear through that family what a difference that can make for healing ... A lot of the nurses say it helps them heal. It brings the outside in, the sunshine in."

COVID-19 devastated flower shops. Local florists hope Valentine's Day starts resurgence - Hometown LifeSunday, February 28, 2021
That was the case for Bob Kupfer and Tiffany Florist in downtown Birmingham last spring. When he was closed for several weeks when COVID-19 was first detected in Michigan, he was left with a cooler full of flowers that couldn't be sold. So he would take them outside his shop at 784 S. Old Woodward and leave them in a bucket for those taking a walk and looking to get out of the house during quarantine. "When we shut down, every day I would come here and put a bucket of flowers in the street," he said. "There's a ton of people who walk by here every day. We were giving away flowers for a long time."Unknown factorsThat won't be the case in February. Kupfer said he is confident those looking to buy their sweetie some flowers — including the traditional red roses associated with the holiday — will be able to, whether they order a week early or walk in the afternoon of Feb. 14.Still, he said, it's best to order ahead to make sure customers can get exactly what they're looking for, since it's a guessing game this year as to how sales will go."The big unknown is, who's going to be buying for Valentines Day?" Kupfer said. "Do we need 10,000 of something or 1,000 of something?"More: Lottery awaits Golden ticket call from $1 billion Mega Millions winner, teachers or notMore: Many families eager to get back to in-person schooling. See what your district has plannedDonna Podpora, who co-owns Donna & Larry's Flowers in Northville with her husband Larry Podpora, said they are starting to get more clarity about what to expect for Valentine's Day, but there were still plenty of questions in late January as they got their shop at 1063 Novi Road decorated with hearts a stuffed bears."Even the suppliers are saying they don't where they're going to get the flowers from at this point. They've got the orders placed. They don't know what's going to come in," said Donna Podpora, who's owned the shop north of Eight Mile for nearly 37 years. "They don't know what to charge us because they don't know what they're going to have to pay because they don't know what they're going to get. It's just so different."Valentine's Day and Mothers Days are widely considered the two biggest days for giving flowers, and flower shops across the region have prepped since before Christmas. It's a big holiday for deliveries, though those look vastly different this year compared to previous years.One issue with Valentine's Day this year isn't the result of COVID-19 but of the calendar: Feb. ... https://www.hometownlife.com/story/money/business/2021/02/03/order-valentines-day-flowers-early-year-florists-say/4226899001/
