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!

Green is the New Black – Stress Free Eco-Friendly Wedding Ideas

You’re getting married! Yay! Now, what?

Planning your wedding can be a lot of fun. It can also be a great big giant headache. There are so many things to consider, feelings to protect, and your own happiness to pursue. What do you do first? How do you prioritize?

First of all, relax. Take a deep breath…and release. There. Much better.

So you want to have an environmentally friendly wedding – an Eco Wedding, if you will. But how do you go about planning one? Is it possible to have the wedding of your dreams without doing so much damage to the environment that there won’t be anything left for your children’s wedding?

The answer is a resounding YES!

And the best part of having a Green wedding? You save money! What could be better than having a dream wedding while saving the Earth and fattening your wallet? Maybe eating a whole lot of chocolate without breaking out or gaining weight – but that’s a whole different issue.

Sunflowers for Your Summer Wedding

April 28, 2010

Spring wedding season is upon us, and summer is not far behind! Can you think of anything that represents summer better than the sunflower?

Sunflower

This beautiful flower is highly decorative, with small centers and petals that range from pure gold to gold with brown. A true sun worshipper, its head follows the sun as it crosses the sky blooming in the summer.

In the botanical world, the sunflower (Helianthus annuus) has a primary meaning which is gifts of radiant warmth. How perfect for a party theme! Considered happy-go-lucky flowers, sunflowers are often linked to loyalty and longevity – perfect sentiments for your wedding day.

To help you incorporate the beauty and symbolism of the sunflower into your special day, Tree Beginnings has added two new products to our line of eco-friendly wedding favors.

Our Sunflower Seed Eco-Gift Box Favors are made entirely from  recycled materials. The card is personalized with your names & date. A terra cotta clay pot is nestled inside the box with a soil pellet and finished with your choice of oatmeal, yellow or terra cotta salmon raffia ribbon.

Your other option is our Sunflower Secret Seed Garden Seed Favors. These favors measure 3″‘ x 3″‘ inches and consist of 2 pieces of paper, your choice of cover design, and personalized translucent paper. The corners are folded like a box and the seed packet is secretly stored inside.

All of our green wedding favors are personalized and contain a special thank you message for your guests.

Light-enchanted sunflower, thou
Who gazest ever true and tender
On the sun’s revolving splendour.
– Pedro Calderon de la Barca,
Magico Prodigioso (sc. 3),
(Shelley’s translation)

How to Show Your Commitment to the Environment

April 8, 2010

A couple of weeks ago, I suggested that your business give away plantable items such as tree seedlings, tree seeds, or flower seeds in eco boxes to commemorate Earth Day. It’s important, of course, to realize that caring for the environment isn’t restricted to one day each year.

eco-friendly business cards
Take my business card, for instance. The flower petals embedded in recycled paper clearly demonstrate my commitment to the environment. Even more exciting is the packet of seeds stapled inside. Each person who receives my card also gets a chance to create a lifetime of “growing memories.”

You too can build meaningful relationships with your customers by showing your environmental consciousness. These eco-friendly business cards can be customized with your own logo and special message, and you can choose from any one of 10 different tree seeds or flower seeds.

Why settle for ordinary business cards when you can give your contacts something truly beautiful and unique which also helps the planet?
