Here is a handy list of how you can prepare for your wedding flowers to be perfect on the day. 1) Congratulations! As soon as you have secured a date for the wedding, call or email your selected florists and ensure the date is available. Tips on selecting a florist – firstly, make sure you have seen pictures of their previous weddings and other event work. It is good to gain confidence in a florist, which can also be done by asking what they have done previously – ask about what contracts they fulfill with hotels, offices and restaurants. Generally, if they can supply to a 5 star hotel on a contractual basis, you are safe to assume they can carry out your wedding to meet your precise requirements! Secondly, make sure your florist has experience dealing with your culture of wedding. In Britain, it is generally safe to assume your florist has handled Christian weddings before. But have they handled Persian or Chinese weddings? Best to ask (We have! Amongst several other cultures – Have a look here for our others). You don’t want to spend 3 hours explaining what the Sofreh Aghd is, only to find it’s done wrong! 2) Make sure what your florist charges is good value for money! Especially important in an economic downturn is knowing that your money is going the full mile. Not to blow our own horn here, but for example, we operate from a warehouse instead of a high-street shop. This means we’re not blasting thousands of pounds a year on rental fees – if we were, those fees would inevitably be passed onto you as the customer. 3) You’ll probably have your initial colour schemes in mind – discuss with your florist your chosen colour scheme and particular choice in flowers if you have a specific variety in mind – while most flowers are generally available all year round, it is important to consider the seasonality as this can raise the budget dearly if your selected flowers are out of season. If you’re not sure at all, contact your florist for some advice on the phone or arrange a face to Archives » September 2013 » August 2013 » July 2013 » June 2013 » May 2013 » April 2013 » March 2013 » February 2013 » January 2013 » November 2012 » October 2012 » August 2012 » July 2012 » June 2012 » May 2012 » April 2012 » February 2012 » January 2012 » December 2011 » November 2011 » August 2011 » June 2011 » April 2011 » March 2011 » September 2010 » July 2010 » June 2010 » May 2010 » April 2010 » March 2010 » February 2010 » January 2010 » November 2009 » October 2009 » August 2009 » July 2009 » June 2009

Try out the HTML to PDF API you’re not sure at all, contact your florist for some advice on the phone or arrange a face to face consultation. 4) Think carefully where you want flowers placed – besides the standard bridal bouquet and buttonholes, there are many aspects to consider – almost every surface can be decorated with flowers and it is up to you (with advice from your florist of course) where you want these to go. The possibilities are limitless – from table centre arrangements, candelabra’s and chair back bouquets, to buffet table displays’ and reception entrance decorations. You can even get everything from your dress and your shoes made in flowers! This is where your budget will start skyrocketing – stay safe and realistic with our guideline downloadable pricelist. It is also important to consider the size of each arrangement as it can vary massively in the minds of different people (for example, our picture at the top has two sizes of table arrangements and also two very different budgets!). Also consider the number of people attending – how many buttonholes and bridesmaids bouquets will you require and how many table arrangements and thank you bouquets will be required? 5) Contact your florist to let them know precisely what types of locations you want to fill (and make sure they can do it in the case of the dress and shoes made with flowers!). This is probably the best time to arrange a face to face meeting with your florist. Here, you can discuss your colour scheme, flower choice and types of floral decorations you require in further depth. The florist should then provide you with a comprehensive quotation. Once you’ve agreed to this you can relax! The florist will take it all from here and contact you if and when necessary. » April 2009 » November 2008 » August 2008 » July 2008 » June 2008 » May 2008 » April 2008 » March 2008 » February 2008 » January 2008 » December 2007 » October 2007 » September 2007 » August 2007 Recent Posts » Serbian Wedding Flow ers & Traditions » Bride Flow ers » A Summer Wedding by Todich Floral Design » Secret Rose Garden in London’s West End » Red Rose Wedding Flow ers Wedding flowers blog » Serbian Wedding Flow ers & Traditions Tag Cloud buttonholes design floral fashion floral fashions flowersflow ers london garden reception pedestal flow ers restaurant flow ers rose roses Season for w edding flow ers Secret Rose Garden spring flow ers for w edding Spring w edding flow ers summer w edding flow ers summer w eddings w edding w edding bouquets w edding bouquets london w edding flow ers w edding flow ers london

Keukenhof, known in Dutch as ‘Kitchen-Gardens‘, has been the world’s largest flower garden for the last 50 years running. This year, Keukenhof is not only celebrating it’s own 60th anniversary, but also the 400th Keukenhof 2009 Like 0
pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer? Try out the HTML to PDF API anniversary since English explorer, Henry Hudson, sailing under Dutch authority, landed on the ‘New World’, now known as Manhattan, which led to the founding of New Amsterdam (New York). The floral tribute to the 400th anniversary is made of more than 53,000 tulips and has been designed to mimic the Statue of Liberty to celebrate ties between the Netherlands’ and the United States. Hosted in a 77 acre park, an estimated 7,000,000 flower bulbs get planted annually for this two month attraction. Known most famously for its bright tulip displays which are best seen around mid-April, Keukenhof sees over 600 stunning varieties of this particular flower, amongst many others. The best time to visit is now, where you can see almost everything blooming in symphony. In March, visitors can see the beginning of spring blooms with flowers such as crocus, daffodils and narcissi. By April, tulips begin to blossom and towards the end of April, hyacinths start emerging. Other displays include orchids, Japanese cherry trees, lilies, azaleas, rhododendrons and many more. Growers compete amongst themselves for the most imaginative display in the gardens. Keukenhof is only 30 minutes away from Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport by bus, so it is no surprise it attracts over 750,000 visitors a year, making it one of Holland’s top tourism attractions for many years. The serene flower garden first opened in 1949 when the mayor of Lisse decided to hold an event that enabled European flower growers to showcase their hybrids and boost the flower export industry, one of the most important exports to Holland. If you’d like to attend Keukenhof, it is open until 21 May and there are still many events left this season, such as the ‘Biggest Lily show in the World’, Bird of prey displays, the flower parade, traditional costume festival and Orchid Weekend, which is the 8-10th of May.

pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer? Try out the HTML to PDF API November 28th, 2008 Cut expenses, not flowers! In a crisis it’s always important to stay calm, and keep things under control. Your clients and employees alike, all depend on your company to be the pillar of support during hard times. When expenses become your primary concern, steps are taken to cut down on spending in order to provide financial safety for the upcoming gray days. Where do we start first? We eliminate expenses associated with things we see around us. This approach, although practiced by a lot of companies, can actually bring about a negative effect, even though at first it seems like the right thing to do. For example, when you take a quick glance around you, youâ€™ll probably notice the lovely violets on the table, or a sego plant occupying that dull corner. If you eliminate flowers and plants from your offices in order to cut back on costs, you may save a few quid, but you lose the relaxing atmosphere that comes with having flowers and plants around. Ask yourself if you would like to spend 8 hours a day in a solid, static, dull, uninspiring space, and concentrate on working harderâ€¦ We need flowers and plants around us, they are there for a good reason. It’s the hidden, deeper expenses that need to be addressed. In fact, most companies discover flaws in their financial profile only when they dig deeper into their operations, forced to do so by an economic crisis. Eliminating the very things that help create a relaxed working atmosphere, therefore a more productive atmosphere, will not solve your problems in the long run, in fact, it will only make everyone work under even more pressure. Needless to say, productivity will go south as well. Looking at things from a different angle, you are to a large extent marketing yourself both to your clients and your own employees. You want to pass on a positive message, even though
pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer? Try out the HTML to PDF API job cuts are inevitable. Bringing on a gloomy dark atmosphere of dread will certainly not help anyone. Do you want your clients, those who choose to carry on and keep bringing you business, to come in and sense your lack of morale? Do you want your employees to spend hours in melancholy, instead of working hard to survive the hard times? Probably not. You may think stopping the little visible things can significantly help the overall budget. It’s the easy option sure, but it’s those little things that help create that great atmosphere in your working place, that every one of your employees enjoys. Instead, there are far more effective ways to cut down on spending like phone bills, travel expenses, mailing, transportation but they do require a little more work to optimise. Cutting down on spending in these areas is an internal change, invisible to people outside the company, therefore your hard earned reputation will stay intact. For example, cutting back on travel expenses will bring more employees back to the office, where they will get more things done in a relaxed working atmosphere created by a vase of bright confident flowers, cheering the world as you greet your next client at the reception desk.

Try out the HTML to PDF API Table arrangement used for the event We’re very happy and honoured to have been given the chance to decorate a small royal event at end of July, a dinner at the Westbury Hotel, with Prince (and princess) Michael of Kent as guests of honour. Our part of the job was to create a formal but private atmosphere, befitting the presence of such extinguished individuals. The event was decorated with table arrangements and standing arrangements in four niches. This was a great experience, where our professional approach was shown in full light. We were very excited and nervous at the same time – expectations were high, but luckily our experience and expertise helped us hit the target dead center.

pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer? Try out the HTML to PDF API We`ve been very busy in the past weeks working on projects for clients, but having finally taken 5 minutes for a cup of coffee with a friend the other day at a shopping mall, I couldn`t help but notice the way the whole building was decorated with plants and trees inside. If you operate a shopping mall you know the importance of having plants to liven up that space. Usually, the parts of the shopping mall that are reserved for restaurants and coffee shops need to be somehow separated from the rest of the surrounding space to give visitors a way to enjoy a relaxation break. While the usual approach with smaller to medium size plants will do the trick for smaller spaces, sometimes the space requires a somewhat different approach. Open spaces require bigger plants to adequately respond to the size of the space around it. Depending on the theme desired you could place, for example, palm trees in a particular area and bring a little tropical heat to the atmosphere. Naturally, other trees are a good choice as well, such as the example below:

It was opened yesterday, 20 May, and will go on for four days, ending on 24 May. The event is taking place at the Royal Hospital, Chelsea, London SW3. It seems tickets have been sold out online, so you may have to chance it and try to get tickets at the venue. Here’s just one photo of what can be seen at the show: There is plenty of interesting content to enjoy at the show like changing climate studies and garden displays.

Apparently, there is one available for just a couple of million pounds relatively close to London. The architects took the bee orchid as a model for designing the Orchid House – a very interesting approach to country living. It’s (or should be) located at Lower Mill Estate, here in the UK. Coincidentally (or not) there are a number of orchid species that can be found there, but it was the particular camouflage of the bee orchid that generated the design. The house, to be built from laminated veneer lumbar (LVL) ribs and clad with timber shingles is to blend well with the environment, offering flexible living spaces, with the kitchen at the very center, and the surrounding space like a ‘whorl’ of leaves encircling the seed of the The Orchid – eco-luxurious living Like 0

As far as interior flower decoration in the house, the architects didn’t say, but orchids seem like the way to go.

John Galliano’s latest work for the Christian Dior fall/winter 2008 collection shown recently show this only too well. He took the optimism of the sixties, amped by bright colours, as his inspiration. An interesting post on Trendinista points out, what’s at first a not so clear similarity between dress design and colours and the beautiful orchids. A picture is worth a thousand words, so here are a couple of shots from the post which illustrate what was said all to well: Floral motifs in haute-couture Like 0
