New Hampshire florists see demand bloom despite event cancellations - New Hampshire Business ReviewWednesday, December 02, 2020
However, the continued postponement of large gatherings for funerals and nuptials is not hardy news for florists powering through less than ideal conditions. “Weddings are our bread and butter for the summer,” Cote said.Floral shops, like other retailers, are adjusting their operations to address customers’ hesitancy to browse in their aisles. In addition to offering delivery and curbside pickup, Hewson encourages people to visit her open-air greenhouse where she transferred many of her ancillary gift items. She also posted that same inventory on a revamped website.“We’re still using that [the greenhouse and the website] for people who don’t feel comfortable coming into the store,” she said. “Being inventive is what got us through.”Catalysts for compassion‘We have been crazy, crazy, crazy’ busy, says Shirley Wrenn of Shirley’s Flowers and Sweets in Nashua, who recently added a third vehicle to keep up with demand for flowers. (Photo by Sheryl Rich-Kern)Community well-wishers also helped merchants withstand the pandemic’s aftermath. One customer started what Hewson calls a “flower chain.”In April, Maryanne Jackson of North Conway purchased 20 table-sized bouquets of friezes, roses and greenery from Hewson with a note wishing people “joy and color,” asking them to support small businesses and consider paying forward the gift. Many of the recipients heeded the suggestion and called Hewson’s shop for more orders.“It was a real Easter bunny, Christmas elf, tooth fairy kind of opportunity for us,” said Jackson.That investment of kindness restored the dreariness of March, generating enough revenues to maintain Hewson’s cash flow.With the Mother’s Day rush behind them, florists are mixed on what the future will hold.Pandemics don’t have silver linings, but they’re catalysts for compassion. Aimee Godbout of the family-owned Jacques Flowers in Manchester, said she expects sales to drop off during summer, but she’s seen an uptick in customers placing orders outside of special occasions.“There’s the everyday ‘I miss you,’” as people choose flowers for parents they’re unable to visit, a neighbor who can’t get out of the house or the local nursing staff, she said.“Right now there’s a lot of ugliness happening in the world,” said Godbout. Working at a flower shop provides contrast. “Every time you pick up the phone, it’s someone calling to be nice.”Wrenn, of Shirley’s Flowers, has noticed that requests are grander and more intricate. Instead of ordering simple bouquets to honor birthdays, customers want floral cakes dotted with lavender blooms and candles. Or they request novelties: flower arrangements designed to resemble mermaids, unicorns or cats.Meanwhile, proms and graduations are canceled. Godbout said her company normally sets up the stages to honor these milestones, but “all that business is gone.”Offsetting a potential summer slump is Godbout’s garden shop. Springtime has pollinated a kinship for plants and with people spending more time at home, even those without a green thumb are taking up the horticulture hobby to cultivate a backyard escape.In the last week or so, Godbout has arranged phone or video consulta... https://www.nhbr.com/new-hampshire-florists-see-demand-bloom-despite-event-cancelations/
Kirkwood-based Cott Studio offers buttercream cakes and flowers for delivery - St. Louis MagazineWednesday, December 02, 2020
Bakery and flower studio Cott has just opened, offering buttercream cakes and flowers for delivery within a 12 mile-radius of its Kirkwood base.

Flowers and Home Décor on Nucleus Avenue - Flathead BeaconWednesday, December 02, 2020
Within two weeks of her move to the East Coast, her mother was diagnosed with stage four stomach cancer. Kavanagh and her husband returned home to Montana following her mother’s death in 2019, and she lost her father shortly after. In the wake of her parents’ deaths, she switched gears and opened Rose Petal Floral and Supplies in Cut Bank, her husband’s hometown. “I lost both of my parents within a year of each other and just felt like I always wanted to start my own business,” she said. “I helped other people bring their businesses to communities with marketing and I felt like if I was going to do it, now is the time.” In September, Kavanagh purchased the former Glacier Wallflowers business in Columbia Falls and opened the second Rose Petal location in the former Yoga Hive on Nucleus Avenue. Now with locations on the east and west sides of Glacier National Park, she’s featuring local retailers and florists as well as exotic plants that wouldn’t normally be found in rural areas. “Our goal is always to bring things to communities like Columbia Falls and Cut Bank that have more of an urban feel to them — brands you wouldn’t normally see in Montana — and then we try to do the same thing with our flowers,” K... https://flatheadbeacon.com/2020/12/02/flowers-home-decor-nucleus-avenue/

‘I’ll give it back!’ -- Video shows trapped intruder put $$ back, beg floral shop owner to let him go - SILive.comWednesday, December 02, 2020
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- The president of a Bulls Head business says she is frightened after a worker had a face-to-face encounter with an intruder in the second burglary at the shop this summer.Dana Montana of Grapevine and Florist on Richmond Avenue said she had just left the store at around 7 p.m. on Monday when an unidentified man entered the shop.Montana’s manger was still in the store, however, and saw the man on the security cameras.A video shared with the Advance/SILive.com shows a man wearing a gray hoodie, gloves and a face covering with an American flag on it taking money from the cash register.The video shows the man rummaging through the register and putting what looks like cash in his pocket.Not knowing if the intruder was armed, the manager “walks slowly and closes the door” that separated him from the suspect, Montana said.This closed off the intruder’s exit, trapping him in the shop.Shortly after, a brief interaction between the manager, who was holding the door and could not call 911, and the masked man begins, Montana said.“I’ll give it back. I’ll put it back,” the man can be heard saying in the video, as he pleads with the manager to let him leave.“Look... right... https://www.silive.com/news/2020/09/ill-give-it-back-video-shows-trapped-intruder-put-back-beg-floral-shop-owner-to-let-him-go.html
