A bouquet seems simple at first, sprays of baby’s breath filling out the broad orange petals of lilies and the brushstroke curls of roses. Without an eye for color and composition, though, the huge range of flowers that are available can be intimidating. The School of Floral Arts & Design develops talented florists and hobbyists through classes and courses that introduce theories of composition and design. Instructors with decades of experience cover everything from design to business sense, and pupils leave carrying mini topiaries, centerpieces, and seasonal wreaths. Professional courses help florists enhance their craft with lessons on designing bouquets and corsages.

Michael Latona emigrated from southern Italy to North Jersey in the 1950s. Meanwhile, his future wife and business partner, Joanne, was making the same journey. When the two met, they realized not only did they share a common background but also common values and a passion for homemade things. This connection was the foundation for their marriage and Latona’s Specialties, a manifestation of their values and passions. Currently, their son Joe oversees the shop’s selection of gourmet food and gifts, many of which are made by hand. The shop houses jars of housemade pasta sauces, stacks of hand-painted Vietri dinnerware, and bowls of more than 40 deli dishes, including stuffed olives and dried italian sausage, that are made each morning. Other items include Italian pasta, colorful Ne’Qwa Art wine stoppers, and an array of scented candles, lotions, and soaps that finally give the nose something to wash itself with.
