NJ Florist Gets Back to Business with Flower Delivery and Classes as New Jersey Reopens - TAPinto.netSunday, February 28, 2021
I’ve always had an interest in gardening and floral work,” said Coy, who worked with a florist in Philadelphia for over a decade learning the business, before she moved to New Jersey and starting her own business here.

I definitely did some sobbing,” Coy said. Her calendar for the spring had been loaded with events. “To have all of that gone in an instant was really kind of hard.” Once New Jersey began its Restart and Recovery Program, Coy waited until it was safe and deliveries could be made before reopening just ahead of Mother’s Day. “To be closed for so long and then jump in with both feet into the biggest holiday of the year was really an intense week.” She has resumed deliveries and now offers an at-home floral arranging kit for both parents and kids “if you’ve ever wanted to try to make something for your table.” Blooms in Hand is also holding a floral arranging event in person and outdoors this summer, at Morgan’s Farm in Cedar Grove, but with some important changes, such as enrolling less people over more nights and incorporating social distancing. “It’s also great to give back to a local farm,” said Coy.

Farmer/florist to speak to the Boca Grande Garden Club - Boca BeaconSunday, February 28, 2021
Ms. Love is well known for permitting only sustainable elements into her work. She also forages materials such as the citron-green blossoms of Philadelphia’s remaining chestnut trees, wild ferns and masses of wild flowers.These arrangements are known for striking color palates and texture. She is insistent that vases not be used, rather vessels. “We use the term ‘vessel’ rather than ‘vase’ because we love piling beautiful blooms into unexpected, often vintage and one-of-a-kind containers, especially tarnished metal,” she explains on her website.A hallmark of her designs is an arrangement that stretches outward rather than upward. This horizontal style gives a warm, even embracing look. It also has the advantage of allowing one to appreciate the whole but also notice more intently individual blooms. And it answers the question of many a dinner party guest, blinded by a towering bouquet, about just who it is sitting on the other side of the table.Her original work has won her callouts from the New York Times, Philadelphia Inquirer and Bride’s Magazine. Notably, the exacting Martha Stewart organization named Jennie Love among the nation’s “62 Top Floral Designers.”As for the rest of her work life, somehow Ms. Love shoehorns workshops, online classes, webinars, public speaking and even a unique flower strategy for the do-it-yourself bride into her jam-packed life. She is vice president of the International Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers (ascfg.org) and a columnist for Cut Flower Quarterly.Check out the Love n’ Fresh website at lovenfreshflowers.com; not only is it pretty but highly educational, as well. Her drool-producing Instagram account is lovenfreshflowers, and she is on Pinterest. Posted by Marcy Shortuse Marcy Shortuse is the editor of the Boca Beacon, and has been with the paper since 2007.

Eric Buterbaugh with his floral arrangement in front of Fred Segal on Sunset near La CienegaRenowned floral designer Eric Buterbaugh is the mastermind behind each of the arrangements. 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/
