Daffodils for Your Fall Wedding

July 28, 2010

I can hear you wondering…

How can you be recommending daffodils for a fall wedding? Everyone knows that daffodils grow in the spring! Isn’t using local flowers that are in season an important aspect of a green wedding?

You are absolutely right! Importing flowers from a faraway location generates carbon emissions, contributing to pollution, so this should be avoided if at all possible.

Consider, however, that for daffodils to bloom in the spring, the bulbs must be planted in the fall. Why not give your guests a favor that keeps on giving – daffodil bulbs in an eco-gift box?

Daffodils have the flower meaning of rebirth, respect, regard and unrequited love. Planted in the fall, the bulbs will blossom delightfully in the spring. Plant a Memory with the beauty of flowers that will create memories of your wedding day as they blossom every spring .

Our brilliant daffodil flower bulbs are presented in a nest of green moss and enclosed in a recycled brown box finished with daffodil yellow raffia ribbon. They are available for weddings from September to November, but should be ordered early to avoid disappointment.

Love-in-a-Mist Seed Favors for Your Fall Wedding

July 21, 2010

Are you planning to “go green” at your fall wedding? Do you love the idea of plantable seed favors, but are worried that it’s the wrong time of year for planting? Worry no more! Some annuals thrive and even sprout earlier in the spring if the seeds are sown in the fall, including Love-in-a-Mist.

Love-in-a-Mist Seed Favors

Love-in-a-Mist is a very pretty plant with a romantic name, lacy foliage and charming light blue and white flowers. Once established, the flowers will self-seed every year and produce an amazing ground cover.

When you order your favors from Tree Beginnings, your guests will receive a sealed packet of seeds along with a terra cotta clay pot and a peat pellet, nestled inside a box made entirely from recycled materials and finished with your choice of pink, royal blue or oatmeal raffia ribbon. Each gift is accompanied by a personalized imprinted paper card with a thank you message, poem, and growing instructions.

Be sure to watch this blog over the coming weeks for lots more autumn wedding ideas!
