Village Flower Basket program still in bloom - Pamplin Media Group
Fowler said there are usually 250 baskets installed, though last year there were about 200 baskets installed due to Boones Ferry Road construction. "We reduced that by another 50 baskets this year anticipating donations might be down," Fowler said. "Our donor appeal letter hit mailboxes right as COVID was beginning. We are thankful for the donations we've received thus far." The idea of adorning streets with floral baskets once a year was brought to Lake Oswego in 1990 by former chamber president Doug Oliphant and a group of volunteers. Karsseboom has been helping ever since. The Village Flower Basket program was The Garden Corner's first customer. "That's how we got started," Karsseboom said. "I was terribly concerned because after all of this time ... the basket program was threatened and it's been such a longstanding tradition for Lake Oswego." Oliphant, who died from cancer in 2014, was on a trip to Victoria, Canada with his wife Barbara, when they saw the hanging floral baskets, his daughter Beth Oliphant Hoover said. Doug was inspired and wanted to spread the beauty throughout Lake Oswego. Oliphant Hoover runs the Oliphant Hoover Community Charity, a nonprofit organization that was created in honor of Doug and gives back to local charities by means of a large golf tournament held every year. This year it was suspended due to COVID-19, though there will still be a raffle. This year, the nonprofit and the Oliphant Hoover families are donating $2,500 to the basket program, though Oliphant Hoover said the donations might exceed $3,000 since an email blast was sent to golf participants, sponsors and donors. Responses and donations were immediate, Oliphant Hoover said. "It was a unanimous vote to participate in a new fresh charity this year, an additional charity, and that charity is the village basket program," said Oliphant Hoover, adding that nonprofit's mission is to be a blessing to the community, and an inspiration to others to be intentional and purpose-driven like her dad was. "We love volunteering and we love just bringing people along (as) servant leaders to just do wonderful things to bless others."
The flower basket program is supported by volunteer donations which go toward the cost of the baskets, daily watering, fertilizing and recycling the baskets at the end of the season. The cost of the program averages more than $70,000, with each basket costing about $350. Fowler said the goal is to collect another $20,000 and keep the baskets up until Labor Day. People can make a tax-deductible donation online, by phone at 503-636-3634, or send a check to the Lake Oswego Chamber Foundation, PO Box 368, Lake Oswego, OR 97034. "Sometimes what people don't hear about the hanging baskets is we get a ton of comments about the baskets as we water and maintain them and the baskets — I have come to the conclusion — give people hope," said Karsseboom,...

Killer Kismet Action
One night out when Hannah was living in Charleston and Matt was here visiting family, both headed for a night out with their respective besties—it just so happened her ride-or-die was dating one his wingman. The entire crew ran into each other on King Street at O-ku, where Matt put the debonair move on Hannah by intentionally spilling his drink on her. “It worked!” laughs Hannah. “We finished the night at [the bar] Republic,” she continues, “and decided we would be marrying each other one day. Girls night turned into the best night of my life!”

A Floral-Filled, Lowcountry Wedding in Charleston
June 16, 2018. "We originally wanted to get married in March or April, but waiting until June to have our wedding at Boone Hall Plantation was worth the wait," she says. "The laid-back simplicity of Boone Hall was the perfect backdrop for our vision-and of course, the Avenue of Oaks can't be beat!" Ooh! Events helped the couple capitalize on the manicured grounds and lush greenery, using an ethereal blush and white palette to bring an air of romance to the relaxed, Lowcountry setting. "We knew we wanted lots of flowers and amazing food and cocktails, plus a big band," says the bride. The result? A party that paired elegant accents with Southern charm. Keep reading to be inspired by all the photos, as shot by Dana Cubbage.Photo by Dana Cubbage WeddingsPhoto by Dana Cubbage WeddingsPhoto by Dana Cubbage WeddingsErin's Marchesa gown was a far cry from a traditional, simple white dress. "I wanted something unique, and this was definitely what I was looking for!" says the bride. The blush silk organza gown was covered in 3D silk flowers, paired with sheer sleeves and a flowing train. She borrowed her mother's wedding earrings-diamond studs with pearl drops-and wore Christian Louboutin sandals. "I didn't wear a veil-my dress had enough going on!" Erin says.Photo by Dana Cubbage WeddingsPhoto by Dana Cubbage WeddingsBecause the bride wore pink, she decided to have her bridesmaids wear white. "They each chose the silhouette they loved best from the Monique Lhuillier bridesmaids collection. I loved how they showed off their personalities," Erin describes.Erin carried white peonies, garden roses, and ranunculus to pop against her blush gown, while her bridesmaids complemented their white frocks with bouquets of blush peonies, garden roses, ranunculus, and astilbe.Photo by Dana Cubbage WeddingsPhoto by Dana Cubbage WeddingsThe ceremony was framed by towering oak trees dripping in Spanish moss.

Urban flower farmer will launch Des Moines' first mobile flower truck
Her dream of gardening started nearly 20 years ago while watching her mother grow flowers for wedding bouquets on their century farm in Boone. Her mother pursued other passions after that summer, but the concept stuck with Moeller.Stacy Moeller started Tiny Acre Farms in Des Moines last year. She's looking to grow her business to include the city's first mobile flower truck. (Photo: Special to the Register)"It's always been a strong memory for me, and I wanted to get back in the dirt and be outside," she said. "It was kind of a now-or-never type thing." So she tore up the backyard of her Merle Hay neighborhood home and planted what she could fit. She grows a variety of flowers from Queen Anne's lace to peonies to ornamental kale on about 1,500 square feet of flower beds at her home and land she rents at Dogpatch Urban Gardens, 5085 Meredith Drive.Her bouquets are sold at Dogpatch's weekly farm stand, at local farmers' markets and on her website. She offers bouquets in a range of sizes, plus a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly subscription. She also supplies blooms and mason jar bouquets for events and parties. Her Instagram and Facebook pages are filled with glamour shots of the flowers she grows "in DSM for DSM."Stacy Moeller started Tiny Acre Farms in Des Moines last year.
