Three Glamorous Gardens for Your Outdoor Wedding Celebration - Boston magazineWednesday, December 02, 2020
DEN FRESHWhether you’re after the classic glamour of flowering bushes, the drama of cascading vines, or the mystique of seemingly hidden gardens, you’ll find it all at Elizabeth Park. Located in West Hartford, Connecticut, the scenic space encompasses more than 100 acres of land. Stop and smell the roses (and get hitched while you’re at it) in the historical Rose Garden, planted more than 100 years ago. Not to worry about refreshments: The onsite Pond House Café restaurant serves up fresh fare using ingredients from its very own vegetable and herb plot. Dine in a window-lined space that offers ample views of the park, then retire to the terrace to watch the sun set over the pond with your beloved. And don’t forget about dessert: The Pond House team will prep a tiered cake so you and your guests can end the evening on a sweet note.GUEST DIGSGet the party started with complimentary champagne at check-in at Delamar, a stylish space in downtown West Hartford. Guests can unwind at the hotel’s spa or grab a bite to eat at Artisan, the onsite eatery where executive chef Frederic Kieffer whips up seasonal dishes with ingredients from the restaurant’s garden.Photo by Haven PhotographyGREENER PASTURESSkip the florist and go right to the source at the Greenhouse at Highland Farm in Scarborough, Maine. A multigenerational family business, the flower farm added “wedding venue” to its impressive resume after the couple that owns it decided to host their own nuptials on the property, inspiring them to open it up to others who want to do the same. Walk down the aisle in the greenhouse, complete with a translucent roof and retractable walls, or say “I do” on the verdant lawn, surrounded by wildflowers. Once the cake is cut, sneak off to Legacy Grove, where the farm permits couples to carve their initials into one of the trees—and live out their teenage dreams in the process. Not ready for the night to end? Cozy up to the fire pit: a surefire way to keep the party going without catching a chill.REHEARSAL DINNERPour a pint and toast your guests at Nonesuch River Brewing, the first (and only) craft brewery in Scarborough.

Melbourne Florists Feel the Force of the Pandemic - PRNewswireWednesday, March 31, 2021
MELBOURNE, Australia, March 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- One industry that has been severely affected by prolonged and snap lockdowns is Australia's florists. Local Melbourne flower shops, such as Amazing Graze Flowers, have been forced to discard blooms they could have otherwise sold.Continue ReadingFlower Delivery in MelbourneWhile other industries have also been affected, the florist industry, in particular, is a slave to the nature of its product. Once flowers have been cut, they have a short shelf-life where they either need to be sold or discarded. Lockdowns have put Amazing Graze Flowers and many florists into a less-than-desirable situation as they were forced to get rid of stock ordered in anticipation of flower delivery in Melbourne.The halt of events and weddings also had repercussions for local florists, reducing one of their most profitable revenue streams for close to a year. Now that gatherings are permitted, there are those who are making big orders again. However, local florists say that many have decreased their budget for flowers, opting to have a scaled-back version of the event they'd once imagined.On the other... https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/melbourne-florists-feel-the-force-of-the-pandemic-301243018.html

Bloomin’ good: Clinton florist business is awards finalist - 100 Mile House Free PressWednesday, March 31, 2021
I’m still trying to make heads or tails out of it. I’ve never been very good at honouring myself, but I’m very proud, and very thankful, to whoever nominated me.”Lawrence began working at a florist shop in Prince Rupert when she was 14, and continued until she went off to college for theatre school. At that point, she put flowers aside, but found they kept coming back to her: “I did my own wedding flowers, and flowers for friends.” Finally, at her mother’s encouragement, she decided to go for it, and Bubbles’ Blossom Design was born in time for Mother’s Day 2018.When Lawrence and her husband Jordan moved to Clinton in October 2016, she realized a florist shop was something the area needed.“At first I thought I’d research it for a couple of years, see how it goes, see how much interest there was, but then I decided just to jump in and do it. If an opportunity comes along you jump in with both feet.”READ MORE: Clinton hires new Chief Administrative OfficerShe says that the overhead was low: “I bought a used cooler and a couple of buckets, so it was an easy thing to do.” Until recently she worked out of her kitchen and dining-room, but last year an extension was added to the back of their house at the corner of Dewdney Avenue and Cariboo Highway for a small storefront.Lawrence nearly sold out of flowers that first Mother’s Day, and she says that the support from the community has been incredible. “It was a great initial reception, and I have the best customers. It was all by word of mouth and Facebook.”The business has since expanded beyond Clinton, with Lawrence delivering orders to Cache Creek and Ashcroft.“My end goal is to have ... https://www.100milefreepress.net/news/bloomin-good-clinton-florist-business-is-awards-finalist/
