With St. Patrick’s day almost upon us, I thought I would take a minute to talk about how we at Soiree Floral strive to do our part in ‘being green’. What appeared to start out as a ‘fad’ has quickly become a way of life. Many articles have been written on how couples can have a ‘green wedding’ from the linen selection, to the food choices, favors, and now even flowers. Some of the farms that we work with are going through the necessary steps to be certified green and/or organic growers. Some of our wholesalers have created departments for the sole purpose of representing organic and eco-friendly flowers.
At Soiree Floral, we have also tried to reduce our ‘footprint’ on the world by composting our cuttings, foliages, and other organic materials that are not used in our finished designs. Recycling our cardboard boxes and wood (often times finding a second life for them as well) all add up in our little part of the world. It may not seem like much, but if we all do our part, the world will be a much cleaner place. Take a look at your daily habits and see what you can do to be more eco-friendly.
We have been getting numerous emails lately regarding a few photos that have been run in various wedding magazines. Many of our couples come to us asking for that little something extra that says they really thought out every last detail. Our design team has so much fun coming up with those unexpected ideas and a few of them have caught your attention. YES we did do the compasses as place cards for one wedding, and YES we did do the embroidered silk banners. Many of our couples take those banners and turn them in to pillows or put them in their hope chest to bring out on their anniversary. We even had one couple cut up some of the materials and the bride’s grandma made a quilt for them to give their daughter when she gets married! It doesn’t get any better for us than that – we love creating design elements that can be used (or ‘reused’) for the next generation to come.
For those of you who are not in the area – we do ship! We have had the pleasure of designing more compass place cards and banners for weddings taking place down in St. Lucia and out in sunny CA. The only request we have is you send us a picture when all is said and done so we can see all the fabulous details of your special day.
