114_1494crpbrnd.jpgIf you recently planned a wedding, bar/ bat mitzvah, gala or corporate event you have probably googled for ideas a time or two.  The internet age has made special event trend spotting and trend setting a fast paced fluid process.  What was once the trend of the year has become the trend of the moment.  Corporate party goers are looking for fresh engaging environments that transport them or envelope them with a feeling.  Party throwers, planners and florists like Flowers With Feeling, Inc. Chicago are faced with the challenge of keeping a watchful eye on the moving target that is the ‘latest thing’.

Social and corporate event clients alike are embracing the latest ‘latest thing’ , environmentally conscious flowers and decor.  This thing called green, however, is here to stay.  While the use of recycled paper invitations, e-vites, vintage wedding dresses versus new and recycled glass centerpiece containers are well known green options, flower growers from around the world are now establishing stringent guidelines and implementing practices that are both environmentally and socially responsible under the Veriflora certification.   Organically grown flowers are currently available from many local growers and farmers markets and are expected to be more widely available later this year.

Typically, theme events like bar-bat mitzvahs rely heavily on visual cues to invoke emotion and to convey the given theme concept.  When it comes to green events, less is more.  A recent example of a subtle eco-conscious bar mitzvah designed by Flowers With Feeling, Inc. in association with Chicago party planner Joyce Feuer, utilized reusable recycled glass vases, recycled paper invitations and featured pruned cherry blossom branch centerpieces,  reusable glass votives wrapped in green Magnolia leaves, river rocks and other locally grown replenishable natural elements (Location: Sofitel Chicago Water Tower).

Events of all types can incorporate this principal without compromising the overall vision.  Ask your florist or party planner about green decorating options.  For more information about green products and ideas for your next meeting or event contact Flowers With Feeling, Inc. Chicago (312-829-1141).

This somewhat less traditional approach projects a more lush, natural feel. The use of seasonal floral complimented by natural elements such as grapevine, willows and cascading ivy atop guilt garden urns brings the outdoor in. A hedge of Eugenies (plants) adds depth, contrast and texture and is the perfect backdrop to this garden style ceremony. (www.flowerswithfeeling.com)
