Exotic flowers, burlap, and mini disco balls: How Sara Perez-Ekanger built a floral design company - The Advocate
Starbucks coffee shop for a bit, but the real architects of her future were around the corner from the apartment they rented: Carrollton Flower Market and then-proprietor Lisa Rogers. Perez-Ekanger (jokingly at first) mentioned to her husband how much fun it would be to work in a flower shop.“He literally pushed me through the doors,” she says. She was hired, and “the owner, Lisa, took me under her wing, teaching me a lot of things about aesthetics.”As Perez-Ekanger’s skills evolved, Rogers encouraged her to “keep practicing and owning it,” and Perez-Ekanger began freelancing as a floral designer for venues around the city, including Stella Plantation. After three years of working for other businesses, the plan to open Antigua Floral + Styling took shape. The company turned three in February, quickly surpassing its humble beginnings in the living room of the Ekangers’ one-bedroom apartment. Now, she and her team have a dedicated studio space in Gert Town.“At one point, I couldn’t take more business because of how small the studio was,” she says. Now, she and her team can travel for special events. They’ve been flown as far as Key West, Florida to design and style a wedding for a client.
Poets-for-hire Lecco Morris and Daniel Shkolnik, decked out in vintage clothing and toting old-fashioned typewriters, are bringing Bohemian fl…
“It was an incredible opportunity,” she says. “It was cool to represent [a class of creatives] from New Orleans.”Just as her work space evolves, so does her design aesthetic. The most-viewed photos of her work feature exotic tropical flowers, such as proteas and anemones, and vibrant colors, such as coral and fuchsia, but Perez-Ekanger likes to think of those designs as a “branchin...

Caretaker Finds Body Of Infant Inside Flower Pot At Cemetery In Carrollton - CBS Dallas / Fort Worth
CARROLLTON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – The body of an infant was found inside a flower pot at a cemetery in Carrollton by a caretaker on March 11.
According to police, a caretaker at Perry Cemetery emptied a flower pot that was “out of place” and found the body under soil inside the pot.
The medical examiner determined that the infant was a girl and was 34 weeks to full term. She weighed six pounds and still had the umbilical cord attached to her.
So far they have not determined if the child was stillborn or not.
“We are awaiting further test results to determine whether she was born alive,” Carrollton police spokeswoman Jolene DeVito said in a news release Wednesday.
Investigators say the flower pot may have been placed inside the cemetery between Wednesday, Feb. 27 and Saturday, March 2.
Police say it appears someone was trying to craft a burial spot by putting the body in the pot and placing flowers inside.
“It would seem that whoever placed the baby’s body there also put the flowers, we... Nov 17, 2017

Flower arrangement tips and trends for summer brides
No longer the much-maligned floral filler of the 1970s, baby's breath is trending in a new way. The idea, according to Barbie L'Hoste of Carrollton Flower Market, is to use it as a "star attraction," not a supporting act. "When it's done tastefully and used in quantity," she says, "it can have a presence — and it's economical."Have your flowers and wear them, tooL'Hoste says some brides choose a wrist corsage, a flower ring or flowers in their hair rather than carrying a bouquet, leaving their hands free to dance the night away.Get personalSonnier and other florists can help brides think of ways to add a unique, personal touch to a ceremony. Sonnier has attached a photo charm to a bouquet and created a special memorial table with a flower arrangement and a candle for a deceased loved one.Procrastinate notDIY florals can save money, but they need not look like you scrimped on them. Order ahead (most florists have cash-and-carry flowers) so you have the variety you want and the quantity you need. Make sure you have time to compose your arrangements without a last-minute scramble. Note for the novice: Carrollton Flower Market offers

as how to keep flowers in place and how to create a pleasing composition.Give it a goIf different and unique are your goals, experiment. There is one caveat: Do it with plenty of lead time. Rather than duplicating what you see in magazines or on the internet, L'Hoste suggests using those images as a springboard for thinking outside the box.Ask the expertsThe internet and overnight shipping from all over the world have made it possible to achieve almost any look. Villere says florists can send pictures of what you're looking for to suppliers, which in turn can send photos of things they are growing. However, he recommends using common sense: Don't have exotic tropicals shipped in the dead of winter or order anything sight unseen. Ask your florist for advice if you are unsure.Do "you"With individuality trending in all aspects
