In the language of flowers, sometimes the most obvious choice is also the most extraordinary.  Here, I have chosen to highlight the gorgeous garden rose, an even more fragrant and showy variety than your average rose. In the United States, most regular roses that you find at your local florist or grocery store have been shipped to us from South America (although different species of roses are cultivated all over the world). Garden roses may have a more pedestrian-sounding name (as if someone just threw down some seeds and they sprung up in the garden) and hail from much less exotic locales (primarily California and Texas), but they radiate a unique beauty.

As noted above, garden roses tend to have a more intense and complex fragrance, and they have bigger heads that include many more layers of downy petals. Although garden roses can be pricey ($6 to $8 per stem), they do last well as a cut flower and absolutely bring down the house in any arrangement. Invest in a small bouquet of them during July and August, when garden roses are at their peak. And if you are lucky enough to have your own patch of earth that gets plenty of direct sun and excellent soil drainage, please shut down your computer and run to the nearest nursery for a plant or two.

One of the richest elements of Colombia’s culture is their passion for a festival of which there are many. Planning a holiday in Colombia around a particular celebration can make a nice additional element to your trip and give you an extra insight in to Colombia and its people. Medellin's Feria De Las Flores, the city’s most important cultural event of the year, started on Thursday 28th of July with a free concert at the city hall, after which the city will host some 150 events in the ten days of the festival.



The ‘Feria de las Flores’ is by far the largest event of the year in the city. Tourists and visitors come from all over the world to experience it. The festival supposedly holds 2 Guiness Book of Records; The largest outdoor horse parade (over 7,000 horses and riders participate each year); The largest outdoor flower parade. 2011 sees the 54th anniversary of the festival.

Less-known events are the car-tuning festival, the orchid exposition, the musical theme nights and the half dozen “tablados” or block parties that are organized throughout the festival.The traditional highlights of the event are the parade of “silleteros,” the beautiful paisa women taking part in the horseback-riding parade, the classic car parade and the “fondas,” a collection of huts where the many villages of the Antioquia department show what they have to offer musically and gastronomically.





The festival lasts 4 days and is a colorful affair of dancing, singing and parades. The streets are transformed into rivers of flowers and it makes a spectacular sight.



















Let's see what beautiful pieces 2012 brings!

I love all things fun and fabulous about weddings, but I’m a sucker for the classics too. To me, there’s nothing more timeless and elegant than a white wedding. It’s so clean, simple and chic! You’ll never look back on a white wedding and think “Oh, that was sooo 2006.” I think classic white weddings are going to make a big return in 2011 and I can’t wait! In the timeless words of Billy Idol: “It’s a nice day for a white wedding”… I couldn’t agree more!
