Encouraging Eco Friendliness in Your Business

Creating an eco friendly atmosphere in your workplace isn’t as difficult as you may think.  Here are just a few ways that you can encourage your employees to be more eco friendly.

Get a Water Cooler

Having a water cooler in your workplace will encourage your employees not to bring in plastic water bottles.  Be sure to routinely have the cooler cleaned and test the water.  Another option is to get a filtered water pitcher that can be filled and used as needed. 

Gift Mugs

Gift coffee mugs with your company logo to your employees to encourage them not to use paper or styrofoam cups.  This is not only good for the environment , but will save you money on supplies.  You can also implement a policy in your office encouraging your employees to bring in their own mugs and glasses to cut down on waste.

Install bike racks outside of the office

Companies like Barriers Direct secure bike parking carry bike racks, bike stands, mounted wall stands and racks, Sheffield stands and bike shelters.  They even…

Beautiful Traditions and Cultural Inspired Bridal Statement Pieces

When you are planning your bridal ensemble, you may plan to wear jewelry pieces that are native to your ancestry background.  These pieces would make the perfect “Something New” or in some cases “Something Blue” items.  I wanted to put together some inspirational ideas for traditional wedding jewelry pieces for different customs and nationalities.


Irish

Irish brides traditionally wear claddagh rings worn on the left hand  with the crown of the ring turned toward the bride or groom to symbolize marriage.  Other traditional  jewelry includes beautiful Celtic knots or shamrock inspired pieces.  You will often also find Trinity Knots on many Irish wedding bands.  These knots are the Irish love knots.  It is not unusual for Irish brides to have emeralds in their wedding jewelry.

Did you know the phrase “Tying the Knot” originated with the ancient Celtic ceremony of hand fasting? This old Celtic tradition symbolizes the joining of two as one similar to the exchanging of rings today. The coupl…

Ways to Create the Perfect Entertaining Atmosphere for Your Business

When patrons walk into an establishment the first thing they do is notice the atmosphere and ambiance.  Creating an atmosphere that conveys the mood you are trying to create takes time and a careful thought process.

Here are some tips to help you create the perfect entertaining atmosphere:

Leave it to the Professionals

Of course, my first tip is going to be the most stress free and professional way to create the perfect atmosphere.  Business like Object Space Place specialize in creating custom atmospheres for entertaining businesses.  Their professional staff  can help you carefully craft designs that help your business strive.  

Color Choices

Different colors set different moods.  Colors like yellow, bright pink and lime green create an upbeat vibe, while warm tones like browns, burgundies and earthy tones give a room a more relaxed feeling.  According to The Findery, Red stirs up excitement and stimulates conversation, while blue is more calming. 

Choose Proper Lighting

Lighting is key to…
