A Bay Area Certified Green Business

Gorgeous and Green Events is a certified green business!

It took a few months, well quite a few, mostly because I've been so busy.  But we're certified.  I hope to get the seal up on the blog and website soon. For information about Bay Area Green Certification go here: http://www.greenbiz.ca.gov/ Gorgeous and Green was already fulfilling most of the requirements and usually going beyond them,  but there were still some things I worked on.  One thing I do now is keep a tally of waste.  I think it's really key to see how much waste, even biodegradable or recyclable materials, we are responsible for on a daily basis.  Overall, I think it was a good step in the process of being green.  I plan to continue to find new ways to act as a sustainable business and offer sustainable product. I've been sick this week, so I apologize for the short blog. In Green and Health, G&G

 

In-Between green posts

Some bouquet and centerpiece illustrations

I wasn't able to post earlier today and I have a feeling I'll be pretty busy tomorrow with the start of the SF Green Festival, so I'm doing an "in-between" post.  I promise I'll have some great green food for your soul next week. Here are some samples of illustrations I use with clients so they can see what flowers and ideas I want to use for their bouquets and boutonnieres, centerpieces, etc.  I like it because I can draw and email them my vision without having to waste flowers doing mock arrangements.  Another way I try to stay green with my business.

Floral decor for an Asian-inspired Wedding I did over the summer, if you follow my posts you  might recognize the real thing.

Sketches from the centerpiece and bouquets for the Kensington Wedding over the summer.

Kelly bouquets and bouts

These are from the orange and brown wedding I did in September at the University Club.  I ended up not using callas, but a lot of dahlias and chocolate cosmos.
