Spring Wedding at a Winery

I’m told that spring “officially” starts on March 20th, but I have a hard time with that date. You see, as a Floridian, our seasons, if we are even going to call them that, are limited, short lived – and rather sporadic. Spring is an occasional day that it’s in the 70’s. And I think so far this year, we are up to maybe 5 of those days, spread out and often followed by a week of low 80s. So the concept of spring, with its new life bringing and bright blossoming flowers, is a bit far-fetched sounding for this part of the world. Everything is always green here. Even when we are low on our rain quotas, the sun still shines and the palm trees just live on.

So to a native Floridian, the idea of spring is not so much the rebirth of nature. It’s more about savoring those few, previous days that bring slightly cooler temperatures, and lower humidity rates. Simple, easy, and yet so hard to come by. It’s a fairly well kept secret that Florida has a number of wineries in its growing wealth of attractions. Snagging one of the beautiful properties on a sunny spring day would make for a perfect wedding setting. Letting the natural green landscape that Florida provides be the highlight of the decor, with a few wine themed accents, and simple spring flower accents, you’ve got all the makings to a natural-elegance inspired outdoor wedding. Why not have a spring wedding at a winery?

Here’s what I had in mind:

9 Ways to Include Greenery in Corporate Events – 2017 Pantone Color of the Year

This week, we welcome Greenery, the 2017 Pantone Color of the Year to our growing collection of event inspiration. I am over the moon with excitement about the chosen Color of the Year. While I tried my best to embrace last year’s duo colors of the year, I really found that those soft hues just do not radiate with me as much as I’d have liked them to. This year, the game has changed. Not only is green my favorite color, but it is such a  fresh and clean hue. The team at Pantone working on the Color of the Year nailed it this year.

This invigorating and modern color, Greenery, is a fitting color to introduce to your upcoming corporate events. It’s neutral, but lively. Modern and clean. Most importantly, it is easy to incorporate into your events. Of course, Greenery is easily incorporated via natural foliage and ferns. But there are so many other ways to use this great color! From green flowers, to seating, to accent colors, lighting, and perimeter decor, it’s easier than you would think to bring this pop of life in to any event scenario. To help get your event decor ideas flowing, I’ve put together 9 ways to include Greenery in your corporate events:

Rustic Fir Tree Farm Christmas Wedding

Have you ever visited a tree farm before? Had the chance to see where Christmas trees are grown? When I think of what it would be like to visit a Christmas tree farm in the winter, I seem to instantly get warm flurries in my head about how magical and inviting it must be. Why not harness that magical feeling to create a rustic Christmas wedding on a fir tree farm?

With its natural rustic winter ambiance, you’re already half way there to creating a memorable wedding that no ballroom can compete with. It takes just a few more elements to complete this design and turn it into a cohesive wedding theme. For this concept, lots of natural greens with burlap accents is key. Simplicity rules in this design, with no fuss, and a focus on the natural beauty that the growing fir trees have to offer.

If the couple (or planners – this would be an unexpected but fantastic corporate themed holiday party too) felt so inclined to be more environmentally friendly, there are a number of options available. Having the paper elements printed on recycled paper, gifting guests seedlings to take and plant somewhere, even offering to have guests give donations to the tree farm instead of gifts, the list can go on.

Here’s what I had in mind for this rustic fir tree farm Christmas wedding idea board:
