Picking the Right Florist To Send Flowers

Posted by Jeffrey Camarda on
Because of the internet the ease of finding a local florist out of state is a phone call away. So here are a few helpful tips to remember when picking a florist. Consumers might not know, but not all "local" florists are local. Some out-of-state telemarketing and online firms pose as local florists. These companies mislead consumers into feeling they are ordering flowers from a local florist, but without their knowledge, are being call-remote forwarded to another state. These firms charge higher fees and take business away from legitimate local florists.

Consumers are deceived into thinking they are doing business with a local company when they're not. That's unethical, unfair and more common than you think.

This is an important fact to remember, when you use a wire service to send flowers be aware of the fact that the wire service is getting 27% of the order. 

 
It's important to remember the era of the traditional retail walk-in flower shop is moving towards warehouse or private studio locations. (Which is something we have done on and off for 30 years.) So how do you determine who is reputable? If you use a wire service make certain it is a reputable one and ask the shop owner what the policy is if the product you picked is not what you ordered.

 Your other option is to speak directly to the florist designing the arrangement. 
 The best way to find a florist in the city you are sending is the internet, or ask family, friends, and co-workers for florist recommendations. 
 Deal only with shops that service their local area and will not wire it out to another shop. 

Always ask "are you a flower shop in the city I'm sending".

The Right Fit: Look for a floral shop that offers the product mix, level of service and design style that fit your needs.

Personal Attention: Choose a florist who will get to know you, keep track of your floral preferences and offers a web site of their designs NOT STOCK PICTURES FROM A WIRE SERVICE.

Excellent Service: Get recommendations from family, friends and business associates. Word of mouth is often the best resource when looking for a  reputable florist.
 

Helpful Suggestions: Good florists ask questions about what you're looking for, offer expert advice and suggest floral gifts or ideas to match any sentiment, occasion, personality or home decor.

Creative Flair: Look for artistry in the florist's arrangements, design and presentation.

Selection and Variety: From roses to exotic tropical, a great shop carries a complete menu of flowers to choose from.

Top Quality Product: The finest florists in the field carry quality product.



 
 

Flor Consejos Martes: Gracias a Internet la facilidad de encontrar una florería local, fuera del estado es una llamada de distancia. Así que aquí están algunos consejos útiles a tener en cuenta al elegir un florista. Los consumidores podrían no saber, pero no todos los floristas "locales" son locales. Algunos fuera de estado de telemarketing y empresas en línea plantean como floristas locales. Estas empresas engañan a los consumidores en la sensación de que están ordenando las flores de una floristería local, pero sin su conocimiento, se están desviando de llamada remota a otro estado. Estas empresas cobran tarifas más altas y tienen negocios fuera de floristas locales legítimos.
Los consumidores son engañados haciéndoles creer que están haciendo negocios con una empresa local cuando no lo son. Eso es inmoral, injusto y más común de lo que piensas.
Este es un hecho importante a recordar, cuando se utiliza un servicio de cable para enviar flores sean conscientes del hecho de que la agencia de noticias es cada vez un 27% de la orden.
 
Es importante recordar la era de la tradicional tienda de flores a pie-en el comercio minorista se está moviendo hacia los lugares de depósito o de estudio privado. (Lo cual es algo que hemos hecho de manera intermitente durante 30 años.) Entonces, ¿cómo determinar quién es de confianza? Si utiliza un servicio de cable de asegurarse de que es una buena reputación y pedir al dueño de la tienda lo que la política es si el producto que usted escogió no es lo que pedimos.
  Su otra opción es hablar directamente a la floristería el diseño de la disposición.
  La mejor manera de encontrar una florería en la ciudad que usted está enviando es el Internet, o pedir la familia, amigos y compañeros de trabajo para las recomendaciones a la florista.
  Tratar sólo con tiendas que dan servicio a su área local y no cablear hacia fuera a otra tienda.
Siempre pregunte "¿estás una tienda de flores en la ciudad que estoy enviando".
El ajuste correcto: Busque una tienda de flores que ofrece la combinación de productos, nivel de servicio y de estilo de diseño que se ajuste a sus necesidades.
Atención personal: Elija una florería que conocer a usted, mantenga un registro de sus preferencias florales y ofrece un sitio web de sus diseños NO FOTOS DE ARCHIVO DE UN SERVICIO DE ALAMBRE.
Excelente Servicio: Obtener recomendaciones de familiares, amigos y socios de negocios. El boca a boca es a menudo el mejor recurso en la búsqueda de una floristería de confianza.
 
Sugerencias útiles: Buenas floristas hacen preguntas sobre lo que usted está buscando, ofrecer asesoramiento de expertos y sugerir regalos florales o ideas para combinar con cualquier sentimiento, ocasión, la personalidad o la decoración del hogar.


Talento creativo: buscar el arte en la floristería arreglos, diseño y presentación.

Thanks For Making Me Laugh Even When I Tried Not To.

Posted by Jeffrey Camarda on

In the late 70's early 80's we worked for a flower shop called "The Village Green" in North Hollywood and at that time the owner, a very talented designer did all of Joan's flowers when she was in California and it is well known that Joan Rivers was very different when she was off stage. Ask anyone in the service industry and they will tell you of her generosity and kindness. I think people will be very surprised when they learn about who this very funny lady really was. Thanks Joan for all the laughs, even when I tried not to and most of all for your support for equality long before it was okay to do so. Our sympathies to her family and friends.

Here are some of Joan's best quotes and one liners

"When I die, I want my funeral to be a huge showbiz affair with lights, cameras, action...I want Craft services, I want paparazzi and I want publicists making a scene! I want it to be Hollywood all the way. I don't want some rabbi rambling on; I want Meryl Streep crying, in five different accents.
I don't want a eulogy; I want Bobby Vinton to pick up my head and sing "Mr. Lonely." I want to look gorgeous, better dead than I do alive. I want to be buried in a Valentino gown and I want Harry Winston to make me a toe tag. And I want a wind machine so that even in the casket my hair is blowing just like Beyoncé's."


I told my mother-in-law that my house was her house, and she said, 'Get the hell off my property.'

My husband wanted to be cremated. I told him I'd scatter his ashes at Neiman Marcus - that way, I'd visit him every day.

I've had so much plastic surgery, when I die they will donate my body to Tupperware.

"A study says owning a dog makes you 10 years younger. My first thought was to rescue two more, but I don't want to go through menopause again." 
 

I knew I was an unwanted baby when I saw that my bath toys were a toaster and a radio. 

I have no sex appeal. If my husband didn't toss and turn, we'd never have had the kid.

Newbury Park HS Boosters Christmas Trees

Posted by Jeffrey Camarda on
What a nice surprise to see Kelly and Jamie Pagett at our favorite Christmas Tree lot tonight. 
We have been buying trees for ourselves and our customers from NPHS Baseball Boosters Christmas Tree lot for several years and always impressed with the quality of the trees, great prices and outstanding service. All proceeds will benefit the school’s baseball program. 
A fresh batch of new trees just arrived so hurry up and get down there ASAP!



Newbury Park High School Baseball Boosters along with all the Baseball Families, Coaches, and Players put on one of the largest school fundraisers to support the baseball program. This is a wonderful tradition in our community that we have enjoyed for 19 years.


500 beautiful trees imported from our partners at family owned Rock Creek farms in Molalla, Oregon. Prices range from $30.00 to $180.00. We are open Monday through Thursday from 5:00 pm until 9:00 pm, Fridays 4:00 p.m. until 9:00p.m, and weekends from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. You can find us at the corner of Borchard and Michael Drive in the parking lot of the Newbury Park Library. Our Christmas Tree Lot will be opened to the public until Sunday, December 21st.


Our 19th Annual Christmas Tree Lot is truly a community event with our very own Sequoia Middle School Band entertaining our patrons with Christmas music on Friday, December 13th at 7:00 p.m. Come out and meet our appreciative players who work hard maintaining the lot and selling trees. In addition our Senior and Junior players provide delivery service to make it easy and convenient for our customers.


For those that have already visited the lot, THANK YOU for your patronage and for those that are still in need of a Christmas tree, stop by and let one of our baseball players assist you.


All proceeds benefit the Newbury Park High School baseball program.

Gingerbread Colossus Rises in Queens

Posted by Jeffrey Camarda on

This is man with a passion. 
From a Bronx Apartment’s Oven, a Gingerbread Colossus Rises in Queens. Verified by the Guinness Book of World Records and currently on exhibit at the New York Hall of Science in Queens, New York, “Gingerbread Lane” is a 300 square-foot mini-metropolis consisting of a colossal 2240 pounds of royal icing, 500 pounds of gingerbread and 400 pounds of M&Ms, candy canes, jelly beans, jujubes, gum drops and dozens of other candy decorations.


Starting in February, Lovitch baked each of the village’s 164 buildings – including a snow shovel repair shop, a snow man apple cider company, and the “Cinnamon & Nutmeg Railroad” headquarters – in his apartment after midnight when he got off work each night as an executive sous chef at the New York Marriott in Brooklyn. He stored each batch of gingerbread in a spare bedroom, where he also kept gallons of icing made from nothing but powdered sugar, egg whites and cream of tartar in a large plastic tub.“My wife likes the fact that I work on it at home, and I’m not out gambling or drinking,” he told the New York Times.

Jon Lovitch is a chef and the creator of Gingerbread Lane, an annual display of homemade and handmade gingerbread houses that he drafts, designs, bakes, plans, builds and decorates for an entire year. Yes, it takes all year to put this winter wonderland together, which descended on downtown Pittsburgh for the first time this November, after 5 consecutive holiday seasons at Robinson Mall.
Originally hailing from Kansas City, Missouri, Jon was inspired by a local pastry chef by the name of Chuck Conroy and a mutual chef friend by the name of Joe Evano to create this elaborate holiday treat that has grown from just 12 houses in 1994 to 138 this year, all made from 100% edible materials. No fake snow or cardboard stands even!


Gingerbread Lane always sits out in the open, rather than behind glass, a fact that can really be appreciated when one smells the homemade gingerbread. The concept for Gingerbread Lane changes each year, depending on what Lovitch has seen at gingerbread competitions, in magazines, at holiday displays, sometimes even drawing ideas from houses he spots while driving.

In Memory Of Stella

Posted by Jeffrey Camarda on

The Thousand Oaks Community, in particular Newbury Park has lost a local legend on Nov 21, 2013. We are truly sadden by the passing of Stella Scholle, owner of Stella's Restaurant. We have been customers and friends with Stella for 26 years and like so many others, Stella's  was more than just our neighborhood restaurant, it's like our second home which attracted a large group of regulars. Stella was very petite yet larger than life, truly one of a kind and she will be dearly missed, but we will always have our "Stella Stories".
Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.

In lieu of flowers the family has requested donations be made to Mary Health of the Sick Convalescent and Nursing Hospital´╗┐
