7 Favorites Featuring Cattleya, a Most Unusual Color


There are some very unusual color names, but perhaps none as esoteric as cattleya (pronounced cat-lee-yuh). The name comes from William Cattley, the botany patron and orchid lover who sparked a major collecting and gardening trend for orchids in England in the 1700s. One of his original orchids, cattleya labiata, is of the color now known at cattleya (see photo at right).
Merriam-Webster defines cattleya as being
A moderate purple that is redder and paler than heliotrope, bluer and paler than average amethyst, and paler and slightly bluer than manganese violet.

This color is difficult to find in decorative objects, but we kept our eyes open and came up with seven favorites that incorporate this rich, beautiful purple hue. Click on each photograph for more information about each piece......more

The official publication of the Sheffield School - Blog - How to Decorate Your Wedding with Farmer's Market Flowers

If you're thinking of great wedding inspiration for the coming spring season, look no further than 100 Layer Cake - one of our favorite wedding blogs. They cover a variety of weddings and feature top wedding vendors, from the best photographers to the best florists. And we also love their do-it-yourself projects. This one is all about how to decorate your wedding with inexpensive - yet so lovely! - flowers straight from a farmer's market.
Let’s preface this post by making it very clear that we are NOT florists of any kind. So clearly our decorations are not as lovely and polished as the professional florists we all admire so much. But, that’s kind of the point. If you’re willing to put a little time in, and get a little dirty, you (or your family/friends) can do your own flowers without as much hassle as you might think.
We gave ourselves a budget of $100 at the farmer’s market. We used our painted mason jars and a collection of vintage white pottery for vessels, and luckily had a box of flower foam in the garage. Which made this project pretty darn easy, inexpensive, and super super fun.

A recession is a great time to start a new business. Assets are cheap, labour is available, and if you can make it in a recession, your chances of survival are much higher than average. Having a great idea or spotting an acquisition bargain is a long way from getting a business out of the zero zone and into profits though. Some folk get so fired up about their new idea that they forget to check the limiting factors. This post looks at some of the classic mistakes that start-up enthusiasts are...
