At 8 a.m. on July Fourth, Ann Etienne and three floral designers were elbow deep in white spider mums, red roses and giant sunflowers in the workroom at Voila Blooms and Decor in Dundee. They were maintaining a fine balance between the task at hand and the lifespan of fresh blooms that would decorate the upscale hospitality suites for this week's U.S. Senior Open at the Omaha Country Club.
