Getting married? Designers make case for 'unusual and beautiful' Minnesota-grown flowers - Minneapolis Star TribuneMonday, August 24, 2020
Two years ago, Prinzing launched the Slow Flower Summit, a conference to help growers and floral designers connect. At the third annual summit, which was held recently in the Twin Cities, designers toured area farms and watched demonstrations at the Twin Cities Flower Exchange (TCFE) in St. Paul. Founder and owner Christine Hoffman started the exchange three years ago to create a wholesale market for locally grown flowers. The 13 “core growers,” plus some occasional suppliers, pledge to grow their blooms chemical-free, without the use of pesticides. “It’s better for the people growing the flowers, it’s better for the person designing the flowers, and it’s better for the planet,” Hoffman said. TCFE has 80 registered buyers, about half of whom are wedding designers, she said. TCFE has streamlined the process of designing with local flowers, Fox said. “When I started my business, I looked up flower farmers in the area and began to drive to them and pick up flowers. Some days, I’d be driving around for four hours. It was worth it, because of the variety. But with the exchange, I can go to one place 20 minutes from my home.” Hoffman has a floral design background, “so she knows how we think,” Fox said. For example, flowers are displayed in color-coordinated groupings, for easy shopping by designers who are trying to work within a bride’s chosen palette. https://www.startribune.com/getting-married-designers-make-case-for-unusual-and-beautiful-minnesota-grown-flowers/561464922/
Business owners tell state lawmakers they are ready to reopen - Dayton Daily NewsSunday, July 05, 2020
Bill Bader Jr., owner of Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk.Coronavirus: Tell us your story ideasBader previously generated controversy when he publicly stated recently he would reopen with or without the state’s permission. He said Monday that he would limit events and change business practices to prevent the spread of the virus.“I don’t think you’re really doing any harm by doing business,” responded state Rep. Nino Vitale, R-Urbana. “We don’t need any more central government planning and restrictions. We need to get Ohio open again.” >> Cash flow key to post-crisis economic recoveryTim Burga, president of the Ohio AFL-CIO, also testified Monday and said the state should take more action to protect and compensate workers. The union leader advocated raising the minimum wage, requiring paid sick leave, offering hazard pay for workers deemed essential and making it harder for companies to classify employees as contractors.“As this task force looks at at the many issues of reopening the state and restarting the economy, I ask we first look at those who are putting their life on the line to support their families and serve our communities.”>> Coronavirus slowing Dayton region housing marketThank you for reading the Dayton Daily News and for supporting local journalism.

The florist-to-the-stars told WEHOville that he gave special care to create an arrangement appropriate for each location.“I always check out the surrounding elements for inspiration,” said Buterbaugh. “For example, I thought it’d be fun to incorporate pink pampasin front of Pink Dot. I was inspired by the yellow building at the Sunset Plaza sign so we incorporated stunning yellow forsythia, yellow acacia, yellow lipstick pincushion protea and lots of soft pinks for an opulent, springtime vibe. We are using vibrant colors for the installation in front of Fred Segal to play off the use of colors in the Fred Segal logo.”Floral arrangement in front of the new Pendry Hotel at 8430 Sunset Blvd. at Olive DriveButerbaugh is excited to have created these special arrangements because stunning florals are something he associates with West Hollywood.“When I think of West Hollywood, I think of glamour, beauty and style which are the same adjectives that I associate with flowers,” said Buterbaugh. 0 0 voteArticle Rating/div... https://wehoville.com/2021/03/28/floral-arrangements-placed-along-sunset-are-gift-to-weho-from-the-soon-to-open-pendry-hotel/
