What’s a wedding reception without specialty drinks to get everybody in the right mood to celebrate? While there are certain cocktails that may not lend themselves to prompt service for every guest, there are many that act as delicious compliments to the cocktail hour setting. Additionally, a Southern summer wedding opens itself to a myriad of cocktail choices, some of which are outlined below. Continue reading
After a hard winter, it’s quite understandable when people choose to hold their summer events outdoors. After being forcibly kept indoors by unfriendly winter weather, it’s hard to resist the lure of a warm sun, blue skies and a refreshing breeze. When the temperature climbs into the triple digits, however, people head back indoors to savor the comforts of air-conditioning.
Savoring a summer cocktail is another delicious and refreshing way to fight off the summer heat. Below are four revitalizing summer drinks that are guaranteed to keep you cool while standing up to the heat of summer.
A Splash of the Unexpected
For an unusual yet totaling beguiling flavor, add guava puree to your favorite sparkling wine. Serve Guava Mimosas with a stick of rock candy for a touch of sweetness and a dash of whimsy. When you dip the rock candy into the drink, a burst of bubbles tickles your palate as an added treat.
Asian Summer Delight
Stir in dry sake and a dash of elderflower liqueur to plum wine for a drink that’s sweet and light. A Plum Blossom is the perfect cocktail to savor on a hot summer day. Pop in a small pickled plum (also known as umeboshi in Japan) to add a bit of tart flavor — the perfect counterpoint to the plum wine’s characteristically sweet taste.
Blazing Orange Sun Cocktail
For a drink that not only refreshes but also mimics the color of the sun on a late summer day, nothing beats the Negroni Sizzle. Campari, gin and sweet vermouth combined with seltzer gives you an intensely orange cocktail that’s sure to please your taste buds and keep you coming back for more.
Tangy Southern Concoction
Named after the brand of Cognac brandy that serves as its main ingredient, Sazarac is a New Orleans version of a whiskey cocktail. It is concocted with a dash of Pernod and Peychaud’s Bitters for a distinct flavor that is sweet and tart.

With a language and singular beauty of their own, flowers have the power to transform any event from simple to simply stunning. There is never a shortage of flowers from which to choose no matter what type of event you are planning. From a low-key but elegant wedding reception to full-blown corporate events, flowers play a significant role not only for the beauty they add to any occasion, but for the emotions they evoke so powerfully in any beholder.
The Symbolism of Pink Flowers
In the flower kingdom, pink speaks of innocence and daintiness; a certain playfulness that is beguiling and never vulgar or cheap. Little wonder then that this popular wedding color is considered by many brides to be one of the most romantic hues and is often incorporated into bouquets and reception flowers alike.
This star-shaped blossom traditionally symbolizes hope for an eternal union between newlyweds. To evoke eternal devotion and dedication, accent a bridal bouquet with an elegant array of double-flowering pink dahlias.
Romance in Pink
Create a cascade of pink and white flowers to imbue an unmistakable air of good old-fashioned romance to your wedding. Combine delicate blooms with hardy perennials to fashion a bouquet that harkens back to a long-ago era when men and women used the language of flowers to speak of love.
Flirty in Pink
Add an element of liveliness and flirtatiousness to the occasion by pairing pink flowers with earthy peach blossoms. At once delicate and playful, this bouquet will keep both guests and groom guessing as to the mood and disposition of the bride throughout the ceremony and beyond.
The Beauty of the Pink Rose
The pink rose symbolizes joy and admiration, emotions that abound in any wedding. Exude a lightness of heart and being with bridal and bridesmaids’ bouquets made with pink English roses and hydrangeas, flowers that signify enduring beauty and grace.
Bridesmaids’ Bouquets in Pink
Pink is a color that complements a wide range of other colors. Bridesmaids’ bouquets that come with a predominant array of pink flowers will look good against any bridesmaids’ gown.
