Mother, daughter duo's hobby is blooming business
Wichita,” Funk said. “It’s really taken off. I guess the more weddings that we’ve done, the more people are aware.” They also have done shows in Abilene, and are preparing to do a show in Kansas City.“The past three years have been a whirlwind,” Knaak said.The business also offers succulent arrangements in unique holders ranging from spice containers to colanders to mason jars. The duo does some digging to find planters they think are unique.“When we’re short pieces, we’ll go around and go to thrift stores,” Knaak said. “Certain things at a thrift store people will walk by, but we’ll fill it and then they’re like, ‘Oh, wow!’” “In the spring and summer is when we go out and buy tons of stuff,” Funk said.“Sometimes we will do arrangements in tea kettles and sugar bowls,” Knaak said.Since Feb. 1, Knaak and Funk put together roughly 200 orders of succulent and candy arrangements. Most of the succulents were real, but for those with no green thumbs, they also made artificial arrangements. “People love succulents and we try to include them in all of our plants,” Knaak said. “I just love succulents. I think they’re beautiful.”Cactuses were also included in the orders.“We did more cactuses and here we are with kitchen tongs trying to put dirt around them without poking ourselves,” Funk said.The idea for candy arrangements came from an old family tradition.“I’ve done candy arrangements just for my daughters where we take a piece of candy and make it into a rose,” Knaak said, “so we decided to take a spinoff of that.” Each candy bouquet took roughly an hour to an hour and a half to make.While they work together on this business, they also work together at a dentist office in Hillsboro.“It works out well,” Tiffany said. “Since we both work there, we have Fridays off, so we’re able to do this. This is our hobby.”Though the duo works together at their full-time jobs and with this business, they both agree it has brought them closer together, and is a fun hobby to have. “Every time we do something, it’s interesting,” Knaak said. “We never know what’s going to happen, but we just have to roll with it and laugh.”...

Optimists learn about the flower business
The guest speaker at the Dec. 21 meeting of the Abilene Optimist Club was Kylie Lee, a primary employee of The Flower Box. Kylie is the daughter of John and Donna Berger, owners of the business. She related much history about the business. She said her dad had been involved in the flower business for over 40 years. She mentioned you don’t have to have a horticulture degree or know all the different flowers to go into the business. You just need to be somewhat artistic and be imaginative. Her dad learned the trade by hands-on experience working several years at the former Olsen Floral Shop. Kylie said their biggest days naturally are Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day, but every holiday it picks up. They have also handled many huge weddings and funerals. Their biggest fresh flower suppliers are out of Wichita, Topeka and Colorado.

Students at Reagan Elementary School helped make the school grounds a little brighter Friday thanks to a partnership between the Hartford Street campus and a big-box home improvement store.
The Lowe's in north Abilene selected the school as a recipient of the Lowe's Heroes program, and the store will provide $2,500 in materials for a number of landscaping improvements.
The first project took place Friday, which was Earth Day, when team members from the store and the students at the school cleaned up some of the areas around school, planted some new flowers and laid down fresh mulch.
"We're celebrating Earth Day," said Billy Bordin, a department manager at the store. "We wanted to give back to the community and we couldn't think of a better way than by helping out the school. Some of our employees went to school here and some have children at the school."
Friday's effort totaled about $500. The remainder of the funds will be used to insta... (ReporterNews.com)
