How Flower Bouquets Alter with the Seasons


Flowers have their seasons. This is obvious when we look at flower shops in Bristol, which change their bouquets for special occasions. This is not only because certain flowers in Bristol are only available at specific times of the year; flowers also have symbolism and a bouquet in spring for a wedding will differ from nuptial blooms in autumn. We take a look Bristol flowers and how these change every season for weddings and funerals — two of the key times for calling on a Bristol flower shop.

Spring Bouquets

Many florists in Bristol can add more colour and variety to their bouquets in spring. Some of the most popular spring wedding flowers are grape hyacinths, anemones, narcissus, daffodils, hyacinths, gardenia, jasmine, roses, and tulips. Lily of the Valley is a top choice of many brides. When planning a spring wedding, ask the local flower shop Gloucester Road about matching flowers to your colour scheme.

White lilies are favoured by flower shops Bristol for funerals. This flower signifies sympathy. Other choices are white and yellow roses and they represent respect and love.

Mega Manila and South Division Heads, Marylee Sadiasa and Engr. Ric Pallesco

The grand celebration was held last April 13, 2023 at The Tent, Vista Global South, Las Piñas City, as Camella and Vista Estates honored the achievements of their business partners from the entire One Luzon Team for the year 2022. The night was filled with entertainment as lively production numbers were presented by The Whiplash Dancers. Aliw awardee for Best Inspirational Singer, Sheena Lee Palad, who was also the event host, gave a compelling performance that thrilled the audience. The spectacular night became more special as Vista Land’s Chairman, Manny B. Villiar, Jr., delivered an inspiring keynote address to the audiences, business partners, and stakeholders here and abroad.

It is inevitable for individuals to encounter unfamiliar currents brought by the "new normal," yet, the sales force of Camella and Vista Estates went against and beyond uncharted waters, re-modified and developed better ways to meet new challenges, and stayed unfazed in the face of difficulties. 

Apart from recognizing the outstanding efforts of its sales force, the event served as a call to action and inspire individuals to welcome new challenges, learn, and breach walls to embrace greater opportunities. The awardees embodied the event's theme by going beyond and finding a way to sail through the unforeseen hindrances they encountered. 

The Next Frontier is a reminder that there is always more that we can do to improve; there is always a border expected to be explored, a difficulty waiting to be resolved, and opportunities ready to be seized. The Next Frontier aspires to spark a new flame for perseverance and ambition and to transform individuals to accept and face new challenges with willpower and a determination to conquer significant boundaries, creating new and even greater opportunities along the way.

Grab The Marketplace’s Pure Imagineocean eco-bag


Gone are the days when people used to take plastic bags for their everyday shopping. People are now getting aware of how plastic bags harm the environment and wildlife. I live in Quezon City where in 2012, they established the city ordinance regulating the use of plastic bags and establishing an environmental fee for its use known as the "Plastic Bag Reduction Ordinance."

Single-use plastic is one of the primary contributors to the environment's rapid degradation. It has been disposed of indiscriminately in environmentally sensitive sites such as streams and landfills, among others, despite having virtually no recyclable purposes. The biggest concern in Quezon City was the carelessly dumped plastic bags. While they represented a missed chance to recover, reuse, and recycle plastic, they also negatively influenced the city's waste stream, leading to various environmental nuisances.

Since summer is here and the ocean, as well as the beach, are calling us out. Recycle Now’s Julie Brown once said: “Summer is one of the busier times of year for waste collection services, particularly for metal cans, plastic and glass bottles, and garden waste, it becomes the season of waste." The unpredictable weather means many people leave their grocery planning and shopping to the last minute, but hurried menu planning, last-minute choices, and worries about providing enough for everyone to eat can lead to over catering and increased waste. While it’s tempting to pack disposable products, buying reusable ones could save you money which you can enjoy spending on extra treats. The disposable way of life also costs more in the end, with both bank balances and the environment taking the strain.

Sadly, plastic bags are being thrown into the ocean

The Marketplace's Pure Imagineocean eco-bag helps preserve the Philippine seas from plastic pollution by allowing you to carry everything you need! These bags provide a clean, safe, and eco-friendly alternative to plastic bags. The Marketplace's Pure Imagineocean eco bags reduce the need for single-use plastic bags, which have been shown to harm the environment. Plastic bags, which are made of petroleum, contribute to the extraction of fossil resources. They also pose a significant disposal issue. Plastic bags take generations to degrade in nature, burning them emits harmful chemicals, and plastic rubbish hurts a variety of marine animals in the oceans.

Personally, I like having a reliable eco bag with me rather than single-use plastic bags. They are more durable aside from somehow doing my part in helping save Mother Earth. This is also why upon learning about this initiative from The Marketplace, I immediately got my own bag. Shopping for my household needs had never been this nice! Plus, I got to shop for our favorite Woolworth Australia's well-loved brands. Talk about hitting two birds with one stone. 😉
