Colorful Fun at a Summer Wedding

“Summer afternoon, summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.” Henry James

The sun is radiating its warmth everywhere it touches, it simply beckons you to go outside and view one of the things summer is best known for: its colors. Perhaps the most beloved of seasons, summer is passionate, lively, and bright. Plan a wedding during this season to reflect the romance of everlasting union — and then head straight to a glorious sun-entrenched honeymoon by the water right after. Does is get more perfect than that?

You’ll want to set just the right mood at your wedding. The colors of summer are like that of fire: yellow, orange, and red. This exciting step in your life should be accompanied by flowers that convey just the right message — an important decision to be made. The first step you can take on this journey is deciding whether you want to contrast the colors of the season with simplicity (such as by using white flowers) or mirror it with vibrant colors in the arrangements you choose. Of course, there are various options between these two.

Yellow and white make a regal pair that is simply stunning. You may create a contrast of color between the bride and bridesmaids by using yellow Ibiza Roses for the bridesmaids and classic Big White Roses for the bride. Depending on the color of the bride’s and bridesmaids’ dresses, these choices will make all the difference. Also consider the way in which you wish your bouquet to be tied or wrapped, do you want the tie to be a pop of color or do you want it to match the dress so that there is no competition with the flowers?

You may also consider having various forms of beautiful summer colors to serve as a creative visual feast. For example, if you choose yellow, you can represent it differently in the bridal bouquet, table centerpieces, and various other places of adornment by using an assortment of yellow flowers such as Sunflowers, Golden Calla Lilies, and geometrically delightful Alstroemeria.

You don’t have to pick any one color though, express the festiveness of this important moment with a colorful assortment of Oriental Lilies. There are many directions with which you can take the ambiance of your wedding, make sure to get bright flowers for this brightest of moments both due to the season and eternal significance of marriage, a moment to celebrate for a lifetime.

Summer Wedding Decor and Venues (Revisited)


An Original Post by Pilar of Globalrose.com

If you select the summer season to hold your wedding, you’ll want to think about all the little things that you can do in order to carry the sincerest of feelings throughout the special day. The details of the bouquet and reception arrangements are an obvious aspect to reflect upon. Will you stud the flowers with accents such as pearls or shining stones? Will the table centerpieces be uniform or will you have smaller versions to fill the gaps between the large statement-pieces? Shall your wedding procession have two large arrangements to dress up the aisle lines? How will they be placed? On towering pillars? Tied to stands? Hanging from the the Church-doors?

You won’t want to neglect a single detail as it all plays a role. Pick up on the light-heartedness of the time and season and make sure to inject this mood wherever possible. You may want to focus on the flower girls, for example, the epitome of youthful brightness. A crown of flowers is a playful touch, remember how pretty the flower girls looked with their little accessories? Floral hair pieces mark the significance of the day, after all, how often do we get the chance to wear them? The girls will admire the bride, and such a detail will be a great source of pleasure not only to you and guests but to them, for they aspire to imitate the beautiful bride. Pink and yellow flowers go well to symbolize pure joyfulness and look great as bouquets or as stylish touches to the dress of those participating in the wedding.

Don’t pass up the chance to give your wedding that extra touch, in the end, it will all be worth it. It’s not just about the day, but the memory you carry with you. Global Rose will help you make all your dreams come to fruition.

A Summer Wedding: Tropical and Outdoor

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”

 F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

An Original Post the  Writers at Globalrose.com

Especially if you choose to embrace nature and pick the beach as your venue, our Tropical collection is ideal and would look very flattering against the natural setting of palm trees.

The options are truly endless, consider a simple arrangement wrapped around the tie of the curtains that fall along the corners and sides of the canopies at the outdoor reception. You may also tie a bouquet on the first chair of each aisle of your wedding procession. These small touches are what take a wedding to the level of being unforgettable.

You may choose to use many colors, in which case our Colored Calla Lily Flowers are an excellent option or to keep it simple but tasteful with white flowers.

Love Expressed in the Petals of a Rose (Revisited)

An Original Article by Zoran Velkovski[

 

“It is the time you have lost for your rose that makes your rose so important.”
– Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Known as a classic novella (especially for children), The Little Prince is overflowing with philosophic meaning, with thoughts that touch upon the human condition itself. The character of the young prince falls in love with a rose and upon discovering that there are many other roses in this universe’s existence, he laments that his rose is not unique. However, a fox consoles him with bringing out the fact that just by her being the object of his affection, by his having spent time on her, his rose is, in fact, quite unique.

Flowers have been a member of the romantic arena since its very birth, for they emanate love’s delicacies and reflect the beauteous qualities that belong to women. Just as there are many “I’s” (since humanity is composed of many individuals) but there is, in a sense, only one “I” for every person, so too this quality is present in love. Communicate the uniqueness of the deliciously strange and gripping emotion of romance with the gift of roses. The thought, the time and consideration taken, the gravitational effect of seeing a bud one moment later come into full and bursting bloom, these are all transmitted and are sewn into the heart with the warmest of feelings.

As with the people we love, the tender gift of flowers is never to be forgotten, for each dearest person is, in fact, our life’s eternal rose.

A Brief History on Father’s Day

“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give a person, he believed in me.” – Jim Valvano

   Where does it begin? Let’s start with a brief history on Father’s Day. Outside religious traditions, in the United States Father’s Day wouldn’t come to be commonly celebrated or officially recognized until early in the 20th century. On July 5, 1908, accounts say Grace Golden Clayton, a resident of Fairmont, West Virginia and member of the church then known as the Williams Memorial Methodist Episcopal Church South, urged her pastor Robert Thomas Webb to hold a sermon in honor of fatherhood and in memory to the 361 men lost, 250 of which were fathers leaving behind thousands of children including Grace herself, during the Monongah Mining Disaster of December 1907. Because of local events taking place, the official observance of Independence Day, and Grace being a reserved and quiet person, the celebration never quite took off and was not replicated for some years.

On June 19 two years later, a celebration was held in Spokane, Washington by Sonora Smart Dodd. Sonora’s father, William Jackson Smart was a civil war veteran and single parent and after hearing a sermon on Jarvis’ Mother’s Day, she felt inspired. A member of the then Old Centenary Presbyterian Church, Sonora suggested to her pastor that fathers and fatherhood too should be similarly celebrated. After some deliberation, the concept was accepted by the church and on the aforementioned June 19, 1910 a sermon was held. The celebration would continue to fade in and out of obscurity with the times. Attempts were made to formally recognize Father’s Day as a national holiday but were ultimately defeated by congress. It wasn’t until finally in 1966 when then President, Lyndon B. Johnson issued the first official proclamation honoring fatherhood in the United States by designating the third Sunday of every June be recognized as Father’s Day. It was later made a permanent holiday and signed into law by President Richard Nixon in 1972.
