We use flowers to share joy, sorrow, love, excitement and many other emotions. They also say that flower is the language of love and consequently at a wedding one would expect to see beautiful flowers - lots of them to confirm that magic love.

Brides have different tastes that are reflected in their choices of dresses and style of ceremonies; flowers are great opportunities to display your personal preferences and provide a sense of uniqueness to your wedding day and overall ceremony.  Just as you spend time choosing your wedding dress because you want it to be perfect, do not neglect the floral considerations necessary to match your style and overall wedding’s theme. There are no rules about the colors and the types of wedding flowers you should use. Therefore, think beyond white and make an effort to integrate your preferences into your overall wedding theme. Many gorgeous weddings contained brightly, vivid bouquets and table arrangements.  Based on your wedding’s theme there are many flowers that can capture and complement the style chosen and lend that unforgettable luster to your day and memory you want your guests to take away and keep with you. Flowers bring colors and life to a wedding ceremony and theme. 

Be sure to have your favorite flowers displayed in a creative and gorgeous arrangement and no one does this in a more professional way than Divine Creations. 


Green Partying

No, I'm not talking about St. Patrick's Day green beer or the color of your face if you drink too much of it... I'm talking about throwing an eco-friendly party!  Being eco-friendly and going green are very in vogue these days.  We all care about the earth and its future so why not include some elements to reduce the environmental impact while you celebrate?!

Every December my husband and I have a party for the holidays where the same group of friends come together because with busy lives sometimes it's the only time we have to catch up once a year.  Years ago I started putting out the recycling bins next to the trash cans and posting signs saying "Santa Says Recycle".  It's an easy thing to do that makes a big difference... although when we put out the recycling bins on trash day, we're sure we get some comments as the neighbors drive by!

Another easy thing to do is send an electronic e-mail invitation using sites such as  They have cute graphics for pretty much any occasion and all you have to do is input your wording, import e-mail addresses and hit send!  Not only is it super easy, but it also saves you money and time but cutting out buying paper invitations, addressing all the envelopes and paying for postage.

This next tip takes a little extra time, but if we're taking being eco-friendly, it's a biggie.  Use regular plates and glasses instead of disposable ones.  If you have the storage, you could purchase "themed" dinner sets to be used year after year.  Or if your guest list outnumbers the plates in your cabinets, there are plenty of party rental companies that you can rent everything from plates to flatware to every kind of glass you can imagine. 

And my last tip that works for pretty much any party - use paper lanterns (light up or not) instead of balloons which are not often biodegradable.  They have a cool effect and come in a wide variety of colors.  They work for birthday parties, holiday parties - even weddings!  And they look fantastic strung over a patio or courtyard setting.

So now you have some tips as you look forward to Labor Day BBQs, Halloween parties and the upcoming holidays which are always full of festivities.  So party with an impact!
