changing up the weekly menu in your home

How often do you change up the food that you serve to your family? Our family consistently had spaghetti on Mondays, tacos on Tuesdays, and the list goes on. I felt that it was easier for my family to know what to expect for dinner each night and it made shopping so much easier for me. What I didn't realize is that limiting the kinds of foods that I served my family was impacting their enjoyment of dinner. I decided to get a good cookbook and start trying new recipes. My blog can provide you with a ton of specialty food ideas for your family.

5 Reasons To Use Edible Orchids At Your Wedding

If you are planning out your wedding, then you want everything to be perfect. This means creating just the right atmosphere that portrays your special day just the way you had always imagined. You may want to choose edible orchids for your wedding and here are five of the reasons why this choice of flower may be the right one for your day.

Orchids are beautiful

When you are selecting the right flowers for your wedding you want ones that are gorgeous and have bright colors that help them to stand out and capture people's attention. The orchid's bright rich purple coloring is enhanced by white. The shape of the orchid also makes them appealing.

Orchids are light and airy

While you are focusing on putting together a gorgeous wedding you will likely be choosing such fabrics as lace and silk. These are fabrics that will be complemented by the orchids you will have displayed around your wedding venue, as well as in your bouquet. Orchids have a look to them that makes them look like they are silky smooth themselves, another thing that makes them a great choice.

Orchids go well with many other flowers

The look and the texture of the orchid also make it a versatile flower that you don't want to dismiss too easily. This flower has the ability to blend in with others while also making its presence known and this is a fact that also makes it a great thing for the overall appearance of your wedding. No matter what colors you have chosen, the orchid will work well. It will work with white, pink, blue, yellow, or any other color(s) you have decided to create your wedding with.

Orchids look great on cakes

Another thing that a lot of other types of flowers won't be able to deliver to you is the flower's ability to work well with your wedding cake, which will be the focal point of your wedding reception. Not only will the orchids look great, but they are also edible.

Orchids can be used in the meal

Bring the purple color also onto the main course plates by having them included in the dishes or used as a pretty garnish on the plates. The fact that they are safe to consume means you won't have to worry about young guests or even elderly guests accidentally ingesting them and ending up with a horrible reaction.
