Shop local on Valentine's Day with these gift ideas

With that in mind, Madison has planned a full week of imaginativeshop events in advance of Feb. 14. The goal, she said, is to honor the holiday’s traditions, while also making sure the shop is chock-full of uncommon and locally crafted gift ideas for the loves of your life — whether that’s your partner, your family member, or you.AdvertisementOlives & Grace’s shop motto is, “A curtsy to the makers,” and Madison focuses on the stories behind the companies she works with as much as the products themselves, carrying bespoke and handcrafted items almost exclusively from small and family-owned businesses. Here are Madison’s picks for Valentine’s Day things to do and gift ideas, in her own shop and beyond. Sterling silver jewelry from Ashley ProcopioWest Roxbury jeweler Ashley Procopio quit her day job to pursue her entrepreneurial dreams, and though her road to self-employmentdidn’t go exactly as planned (she ended up having to return to working full-time), today her handcrafted line of minimalist sterling silver jewelry is an Olives & Grace favorite, especially the daintystacking rings ($32). The local artisan will host a trunk show at the shop on Feb. 10 from 1 to 4 p.m.Wine at Haley.Henry“It doesn’t get much better than the old school playlist at Haley.Henry to get your night started,” Madison said. She recommends the snug Downtown Crossing wine bar as a cozy spot for a romantic night out, though she said the scene there is “open arms to couples and singles alike.” Diners can expect to graze on a selection o...

Korge matriarch celebrates 100th birthday with family, friends

She found me the right kind of help and it made all the difference in my ability to advance in my life,” he said.“I used to bring her flowers when I was maybe 6 or 7 years old. I picked them for her from around the neighborhood and she was extremely happy. The neighbors didn’t mind, but I don’t think my arrangements were that good.”Tom Korge said his mother “taught me practically everything about being a good person.”“She taught me about being a great example, like my father.

From Fragile to Funky: Flowers in Fashionable Fabrics, 1500-2000

Exhibition Galleries (now showing Royals of Pasadena: Rose Queen® and Royal Court) starting at 5:00 pm and a wine and cheese reception. Advanced ticket purchase is recommended; purchase online at or by calling 1.800.838.3006, ext. 1.About the LectureWhether woven or printed, embroidered or embellished with trompe l’oeil petals and three-dimensional bouquets, or pushed to their abstract limits in design, flowers continually captivate and provide endless sources of natural inspiration to fashion designers and interior decorators. Carnations, pansies, and roses decorated the most sumptuous Renaissance fabrics in a codified, symbolic system; “tulip mania” enthralled European collectors and textile designers in the seventeenth century, harmonizing with a surge in published botanical studies and naturalistic themes in silk weaving. Oriental flora on Indian and Chinese export goods held sway in the Age of Enlightenment, while historical revivals in the nineteenth century saw bolder versions of bygone floral patterns. Art Nouveau artists arranged irises and poppies in fresh, exciting compositions, and catapulted a whole host of blossoms, blooms, and buds into the modern, twentieth-century world—a world that at times proclaimed “Ornament is Crime!” and, at others, “Flower Power!”About the SpeakerLeigh Wishner is Museum Coordinator at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising Museum, Los Angeles.

A florist's advice for saving money on flowers

For weddings, Heather Cole, owner and designer of Forever Cole Events in Oklahoma City, says it's best for couples to plan six to nine months in advance so she can secure flowers from her farm suppliers. Pictures on the internet can be deceiving.Florists know busy consumers might want to save time by purchasing flowers online or on the phone. But they encourage people to come into their shops to make the best decision when purchasing a gift or arrangements for events, such as weddings."I suggest you stop in and look at them, because pictures on the internet can be deceiving," said Drummond. "It's difficult to tell size."For example, there are hundreds of varieties of roses with unique characteristics including stem length, bud size and how full they bloom, color, petal count and fragrance.This is equally important when picking out wedding flowers and trying to match colors with bridesmaid dresses, for example. "Flowers change throughout the season and throughout different farms," said Cole. "So the color can vary slightly."Orchids and succulents give you more bang for your buck.For those who are looking for options that may last longer for their budget, Drummond says that succulents are popular and trendy - especially among millennial consumers."They last for weeks and weeks. Some of our customers have a green thumb, and they can get them to bloom next year, so there really is a long time they can be enjoyed," Drummond said. "They are easy to take care of and fun." We really want you to give us a budget.For Valentine's Day, if you are on a budget, Drummond says every florist has a value option and suggests that consumers ask what's available at their local shop."It might just be like a really cool little container with a succulent and maybe some decorative stones and maybe an orchid," he said. "Just real simple, but the vase is kind of cool and it's trendy and it has a lot of interest, but it's not very large. So sometimes you can get something very fun, very different, without breaking the bank."For weddings, budgets obviously are bigger. Drummond, who owns Plaza Flowers in the Philadelphia area, says his customers spend about $3,000-$3,500 on wedding florals. Burns says her customers spend about $3,000-$5,000. Burns says she always asks the budget upfront, not to try to maximize a budget, but to offer cost-saving tips, such as using bridesmaid bouquets as centerpieces. She says she can find flowers within anybody's budget."There's always thousands of choices when it comes to flowers," she said.For example, for those who like peonies, which are a premium flower with a higher cost, Burns says she can recommend other flowers, like a football mum. "So you can always see what they like and then recommend other options if they don't have the price point," she said. Stick with one florist on your wedding day.When picking venue and reception locations, ask if they have their own florists. Consumers are better off partnering with one expert vendor to ensure design styles or flower colors match, Drummond says. Talk to your florist, he says, and even tell him or her about what you were looking at to see if they can match the price or suggest something similar. "By dealing with just one vendor, it is one less headache," he said.Location matters - a lot.Flowers can be shipped from all over the world, depending on wh... (KTVB)

Grammys orders for white roses keep pouring in at local florists

Madison Square Garden, leaving local florists with little time to prepare. Many said they hadn’t ordered any extra flowers in advance. Palliser said his shop was in the process of filling an order of 20 of the white flowers, priced at $20 each. Projecting the orders will only increase in the final hours leading up to the ceremony, the shop was looking to order more from the 28th Street Local Flower Market come Saturday morning. Richard Sonnick, the owner of Flowers By Richard in Hell’s Kitchen, said the orders were coming in without an explanation. “We’re not sold out yet, but people have been ordering. We’ve sold about 100 white roses, normally we wouldn’t have ,” he said. “They want the same for men and women, and white corsages.” Peter’s Flowers NYC, just three blocks from Madison Square Garden on 36th Street, had completely sold out of white roses by Friday afternoon after filling orders of nearly 500. The push for the flower comes after two execs at labels Roc Nation and Interscope Records, Meg Harkins and Karen Rait, reportedly sent a letter to industry insiders asking them to clip a flower to their tuxedos and gowns. “Please join us in support of equal representation in the workplace, for leadership that reflects the diversity of our society, workplaces free of sexual harassment and a heightened awareness of accountability that our sisters started on January 1st and continued through the Golden Globes and onward,” the letter said.According to Billboard, Halsey, Rapsody, Kelly Clarkson, Cyndi Lauper, Dua Lipa, Rita Ora, Tom Morello and others, including host James Corden, have said they plan to participate. The choice of a white rose is symbolic of “hope, peace, sympathy and resistance.”The Grammys, returning to New York City after a 15-yea...
