Since today is the tenth day, we thought we would mix it up a bit and give you some interesting facts about holiday flowers and traditions.
CHRISTMAS/EVERGREEN TREES: Did you know the first person credited for bringing a tree inside the home was Martin Luther? Before this, people would just decorate with a few branches here or there, but Martin Luther was credited with being the first! How neat! The evergreen tree is also considered to be symbolic of everlasting life since it does not go dormant or die in the winter. Pagans during this time made evergreen wreaths as a symbol of everlasting life.
MISTLETOE: Before mistletoe was used to steal a kiss from that special someone, it was a scared item of the Celtic and Norse. It was originally hung over the door to protect them against storms and evil.
HOLLY: Holly was scared to the Romans and originally used to honor the God, Saturn (God of Agriculture and Harvest).
POINSETTIA: Poinsettias association with winter and Christmas are said to come from a Mexican legend. The legend status that a child, with no means for a grander gift, gathered weeds from a roadside to place at a church alter on Christmas Eve. As the congregation witnessed a Christmas miracle, the weeds turned into beautiful and vibrant red and green flowers. In today's society poinsettias are said to symbolize good cheer and success and bring wishes or mirth and celebration.

The Florida Goal-Liners were started back in 1979, and to help celebrate their birthday, Ward Pell, one of the founding birth mothers attended the celebration along with eight other original members. Ward Pell first came to UF with her husband, Charley Pell.
To celebrate the event The Plant Shoppe provided centerpieces and 80's styled corsages. The corsages pictured below are made up of orange carnations, blue curling ribbon, and accented with gold footballs.
The centerpieces were made up of a floating orange gerbera Daisy in a lotus bowl, accented with blue marbles.
And finally, pictured below is Ward Pell, founding birth mother, wearing one of our corsages.

For the altar area of the ceremony, two white and green floral arrangements were placed on two columns. The arrangements were later moved to the reception site and used to accent the head table. These white columns are just a few of the many different ways to showcase gorgeous arrangements on your special day and are available for rent. Contact us for more information!
For the reception centerpieces, three calla lilies were placed in vases that were accented by crystals and two small votive candles.
Moving onto the bridal party, the groom's boutonniere was made of Bells of Ireland.
Below is a picture of the bridal party's flowers. The bride's bouquet (far left of the picture) is a hand-tied bouquet made up of pearl-accented stephanotis featuring green hydrangeas and green hypericum. The bridal party's bouquet's were hand-tied bouquets of white hydrangeas with green hypericum.
