Charlotte's Florals trucks in 'happiness' bouquets - Herald & Tribune
By MARINA WATERS
You’ve likely picked flowers from a hillside or flower garden before, but have you picked them from a vintage flower truck set up on the side of the street?
Charlotte’s Florals, the mobile flower shop that’s likely to be seen at farmers markets or downtown events anywhere between Johnson City, Bristol and Kingsport, has been rolling up to customers since 2015. But for owner and operator Charlotte Julian, the flower truck business was a way to fulfill a childhood vision — and offer a little happiness to roadside flower lovers.
“I think from an early age I sort of had this entrepreneurial spirit,” Julian said. “I knew I wanted to have my own business of some sort. I knew I had a creative side. I just didn’t really know what that looked like. So when this opportunity came available, I kind of just hit the ground running.”
One of the first steps in creating Charlotte’s Florals was finding the perfect truck for the task; once Julian found her iconic, white, Ford van from the ‘60s to tote the array of flowers from town to town, she knew she was ready to catch the attention of bystanders.
“We really wanted to find a truck that would really catch the eye and I think we succeed in that,” she said. “We found a truck on Craigslist and went and got i... Apr 27, 2019

Artist crafts flowers from paper for Kingwood Gardens exhibit - Mansfield News Journal
MANSFIELD - "Paper Gardens," an art exhibit at Kingwood Center Gardens by Columbus artist Lea Gray, will have some visitors wondering if the flowers are real or fake. Gray said she takes that as a compliment.
The exhibit, open through August at Kingwood Hall, is Gray's first official exhibit for her company, PaperBlooms Design LLC, She will be teaching her designs at workshops at Kingwood in May, June, August and September.
Gray makes the flowers, plants and trees from paper she buys from a company in Germany. She dyes the paper and cuts, curls and bakes the creations in her kitchen oven.
"My walk-in closet has a window and I use it as my spray booth," she said.
Gray, who studied fine arts with a focus on landscape painting at the Columbus College of Art and Design, soon after discovered origami. That led her to explore a more intricate path of creating with paper, she said. Her passion and love for nature spawned a new direction in emulating plants, flowers and trees.

A walk through the history of roses as a wedding flower - Los Altos Town Crier
The special arrangements featured traditional white garden roses, foxgloves and peonies. They also comprised some flowers Prince Harry picked from the couple’s private garden at Kensington Palace, including Princess Diana’s favorite, forget-me-nots, as a tribute to his late mother.
It was an ancient Greek and Roman tradition for the bride and groom to wear garlands around their necks to represent new life, hope and fertility. Brides also carried bouquets made of herbs and spices to ward off evil spirits and increase sexual desire.
In the Victorian era, flowers became a notable part of wedding ceremonies, replacing most of the herbs and spices in the bridal bouquets. For Queen Victoria and Prince Albert’s wedding in 1840, the queen’s bouquet was composed entirely of snowdrop flowers.
Today, there are no rules for wedding flowers. Choose flowers of any color, shape and fragrance to suit your personality, taste and style. Actors Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas used 20,000 cream-color roses at their wedding. If you watched the recent Disney movie “Cinderella,” you were certainly impressed by Cinderella and Prince Kit’s wedding, which was filled with romantic white and pink roses.
Since 500 B.C., roses have played a key element in popular culture. Paintings of roses have been dis... Apr 27, 2019
