As a huge fan of Costco, I had to pass along some news regarding their fabulous, fresh roses. As of June 15, 2008, all roses purchased from South America by Costco and sold in the warehouses are RA (Rainforest Alliance) certified.
What does that mean? The RA standards protect ecosystems and wildlife habitats (yay!), conserve water and soil, promote decent and safe working conditions and ensure that the farms are good neighbors to rural communities and wild lands. Yet another reason to pick-up your fresh florals at Costco.
If you are planning a smaller event such as a bridal or baby shower, or dinner party, and want to arrange the flowers yourself, the flowers at Costco are a perfect way to spruce up tables and decor. And the prices, well let’s just say you will get quite a bargain!
Jacqui & Bryan wed on August 9th, at the Anaheim Sheraton and had such a great time with family and friends! These two really know their music and left nothing to chance, giving their DJ a complete list of songs for every event and included glo-sticks to end the night!
Pictures will be available soon, can’t wait to share!
Karen & Kelly’s wedding was on June 21st of this year and unfortunatley, I haven’t received pictures to share YET, however, i’m hoping I will have some to share very soon! Karen is so special and such a dear person, I was truly sad that her day had come and gone so we both promised to keep in touch and meet up for lunch. She and her new husband, Kelly, have a new home in a different state but we still manage some contact by texting each other!
The Anaheim Sheraton was their wedding venue and the color palette incorporated a deep shade of blue in their color palette to match with the Marine Corps hues. After announced as Mr. & Mrs., the couple walked through the tunnel of swords, which made for such great pictures and a great honor for them both.
Congratulations to Karen & Kelly! I wish you the best in your new home and life together and Karen: I can’t wait to catch up with you at our lunch date and see some long-awaited pictures!
I love this blue, able-to-custom-engrave iPod Nano from Apple! Who wouldn’t want a brand new toy like this?
