Florist to hand out bouquets Oct. 24 for 'Petal It Forward'
PRINCETON — On Wednesday, Oct. 24, Flowers by Julia will be hitting the streets of Princeton, handing out bouquets of flowers to random people, as part of the Society of American Florists’ “Petal It Forward” program.
Flowers by Julia is joining hundreds of florists across the country in this random-acts-of-kindness effort. This effort is in response to the release of data by SAF, showing the positive emotional benefits of flowers.
After receiving their flowers, recipients are asked to spread the happiness by gifting their extra bouquet to share with a loved one, co-worker, or even a stranger.
“We see the positive impact, day in and day out, when we make our flower deliveries,” said Julia Cain of Flowers by Julia. “People love to get flowers ‘just because,’ so we wanted to create random smiles on Wednesday, and give people a chance to do the same for someone else,” Cain said.
“The impact of giving or receiving... May 24, 2018
As May Flowers Bloom, A Closer Look at White House Gardens Past and Present
Wilson was an educated painter who had studied botany, and she had designed a garden for their New Jersey home when Woodrow Wilson was president of Princeton College.
Amid the women's suffrage movement, Mrs. Wilson hired Beatrix Farrand-the only female founding member of the American Society of Landscape Architects-to design the East Garden. Their August 1913 plan included conifers, boxwoods, annuals, perennials, and a reflecting pool.
Mrs. Wilson passed away in 1914, and her garden remained unplanted for two years. While President John F. Kennedy was in office, the garden was redesigned yet again, later finished during Lyndon B. Johnson's presidency. It features seasonal flowers and ornamental hedges to this day.
The Rose Garden
President Kennedy was also responsible for an update to the famed Rose Garden outside the Oval Office. He wanted an outdoor space to use for official ceremonies, and Rachel Lambert Mellon signed on to redesign the Rose Garden in August 1961 with the goal of making it both beautiful and functional.
Mellon worked with Irwin M. Williams of the National Park Service, who became the White House's head gardener for nearly 50 years. Mellon had four months to make the transformation, and in that time Williams transplanted magnolias from the tidal basin to the Rose Garden at her request. He also changed the steps to allow a platform for the President to stand on and see the crowd without seeming elevated above them, and he planted the beds with some of the varieties noted in Thomas Jefferson's journal.
Today, the Rose Garden is a lawn lined with boxwood hedges, magnolias, and crabapple trees. It can hold up to 1,000 spectators for special events.
Neglected at times, but often reappearing, is the White House Kitchen Garden. President John Adams planted the first vegetable garden in 1797 for the practical matter of feeding guests on a bud... Feb 8, 2018
County Florists ready to help you “Say It With Flowers”
Thief River Falls if the weather is too frigid.Jenn Durkee was trained on a government program almost 35 years ago at Princeton Floral. She later worked at Elk River Floral, 3 Keys Floral in Fargo, and owned her own business, ‘Flowers by Jennifer.’ In addition, she’s “done weddings and other special occasions for friends and family through the years.”Today she works part-time as the preschool teacher for Marshall County Central Schools at Viking Elementary School and has arranged flowers at Nordisk Hemslöjd for two and one-half years.Nordisk Hemslöjd also purchases their flowers from Len Busch. Jenn has this to say about the supplier: “My brother-in-law used to work for Len Busch about 30 years ago when they were a much smaller operation. Now they have 15 acres of greenhouse in Plymouth, Minn. They also source flowers from around the world.”She says a small lily, the alstroemeria, is her favorite flower. “It is the flower of friendship and comes in many colors,” she explains.Her favorite part of being a florist is “choosing the flowers and putting them in a variety of arrangements…I also like the opportunity to speak to the customers and get a feel for what they would like to order.”Does Jenn have any suggestions for Valentine’s Day gift giving besides the obvious roses? “Besides roses for Valentine’s Day, I would recommend a mixed arrangement, perhaps with stargazer lilies, alstroemeria and roses.”What advice does she offer to Valentine’s Day shoppers? “I think flowers are the obvious choice for Valentine’s Day! If your budget allows, go big! But, if not, just a single flower or a wrapped bouquet will still say, ‘I love you.’ Be sure and keep flowers wrapped well when transporting them outside in the cold.”What changes has Jenn seen in the floral business over the years? “For many years, we used wedding bouquet holders, and now bridal bouquets are usually hand-tied. Silk wedding and prom flowers had kind of gone out of vogue for some time, but are now making a comeback.”Jenn is pleased that customers today don’t just buy flowers for special events. “I think flowers should be enjoyed all year long and not just on special occasions,” she says, “Even though I work with flowers, I don’t think I’ll ever stop enjoying them; they’re such a beautiful expression of God’s creativity.”Both Austin Flowers and Nordisk Hemslöjd sell a variety of other items, besides flowers, for Valentine gift giving, such as balloons, plants, candy, and plush animals.Both shops deliver in their local communities and surrounding areas.Say it with flowers this Valentine’s Day!

UPDATE: Local flower shop owner speaks out after robbery, one arrested
UPDATED STORY 11/7/2017PRINCETON,. W. Va (WVNS) -- A man is in jail and another is on the run after the two came up with an elaborate plan to rob a local flower shop.

Brown said last week a man wearing a grey hoodie walked into his shop, knocked him to the ground, and stole his wallet that was full of cash and credit cards. "Took my wallet, keys to my car and I had $1,000 in my bill fold I collected over thanksgiving weekend and $95 dollars in my pocket," Brown said. But the man in the grey hoodie wasn't alone. While the robbery was taking place, another man was in the store. Eric Long was working in the flower shop for Brown in exchange for "flowers for a funeral."

From a single Mother's Day carnation to a riot of flowers
This story was originally published in the May 2017 Princeton Echo.Bang for your buck: Each of the bouquets above cost $35. The one on the leftis from McCaffrey’s. Viburnum’s creation is on the right.Oh, the colorful, fragrant bouquets and flowers of Mother’s Day. They represent one of the busiest seasons of the year not only for Princeton’s florists but also for those across the nation. Indeed, Mother’s Day flowers chalk up a whopping $2.5 billion in sales nationally.It wasn’t intended to be a commercial bonanza. Credit for our Mother’s Day holiday goes to Anna Jarvis, who in 1908 had her mother memorialized at St. Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. Decades later the church took advantage of the occasion by becoming incorporated as the International Mother’s Day Shrine — something to visit should you ever inexplicably find yourself in Grafton.Jarvis chose white carnations to put on her mother’s grave because they were her mother’s favorite flower. With the success of the Sunday service, Jarvis campaigned for a nation...
