你需要Wedding planner 嗎?




Wedding planner都係幫手做research, 做下co-ordination. 除非兩人的品味一致,否則要找合心水的意見就太不一樣了。所以新人一定自己做ideas, 打電話/購物則由wedding planner代行,和做assistance 一樣,到做後決定物由係對新人自己。在 google research 好容易,所以新人需要用wedding planner 用在準備的時數少之有少,付出價錢都用在婚禮當日吧。

Wedding MC,都係外人。姐妹 或 兄弟充當就可,更真情流露吧!

如果只有10圍以內,不用太多強勁的planning也不要太恐慌,run down 大把時間。

如果真係富貴的豪門宴,就要event planner,要有life style 要有taste的planner 先幫到手。

所以坊間的學府會有甚麼wedding planner 証書,巧立明目就不要花錢學了,不如學家政女皇martha stewart 確立自己的style算了。

預算有限,但創意無限,香港人就話時間太忙所以要wedding planner,人有我有吧!要花點時間,真正做research, 自然樂在其中,DIY 的方法做自已的婚禮,在外國流行,不要太浮誇吧!

甚麼主題婚禮,又不是水晶燈,花海,金壁輝吧,可以想想自己是否需要佈置地嫁入皇族的感覺,定還是簡單的山盟海誓。

Green plants for green buildings 出點力綠化室內吧!

只要在室內擺設綠色植物,就有助於改善「病態建築症候群」。因為綠色植物不僅可以美化空間,更有助於放鬆心情、減少壓力與疲勞感,科學研究更顯示栽種植物具實際改善日常活動空間內落塵、二氧化碳及揮發性有機物質等功效。 
 



以為室內的冷氣比路上的空氣乾淨,那就大錯特錯了,冷氣吸入外圍的空氣,結果一樣有呼吸氣管,咳嗽等毛病。
要室內空氣質數得到改善,就要用大量植物,產生氧氣,吸走化學物如甲荃。

研究顯示,樓宇中每一個人就要平均四棵樹,香港的寫字樓就沒有這樣的環境,只能在吸下街外的廢氣。
外國的設計都會以綠化的植物提升室內的美觀感,可惜香港的設施豪宅口味濃,容不下真樹木,以假花假樹代替。
政府部門用假樹最多,不見它們的室內運動場,圖書館的樹都是假的,真正綠化香港只有市民自己發力了!

綠色植物﹣為夏天散散熱



30度的火熱高溫,的確熱力驚人。植物可以遮攔陽光,呼出清新空氣,綠化家居,心情都開朗D,做事起勁D。多種植物為地球降溫出一分力!

室內植物的打理

-------------------
Planting and repotting in 4 steps.

The best period of time to repot plants is in early spring. Plants that almost burst out of their pots and plants that lack vitality should be repotted now. Transfer the plants into a pot that is at least 1 size larger. Whether you start planting or repotting, always use the same method.

如果植物的根而穿透內盆,那就需要更換大一點的盆。如果植物的外觀缺乏生命力,亦要更換泥土的時候了。

1. Choose the right pot. Make sure the plant has room for growth so don’t choose a size that is too small. Make sure the pot possesses a drainage hole for excess water.
植物要有生長的空間,不要使用太小的盆。盆底有孔使水份滲出。

2. Always use potting soil. Potting soil mixed with coconut fibre dries out less rapidly. For this purpose there are also granules (Seramis) that can be mixed through the soil.
使用科學泥。有些科學泥可能摻有椰子殼衣和粒子使保持泥土的水份或幫助疏水。亦可以使用陶粒保持水份。

3. Before repotting or planting place some clay clumps or shards at the bottom of the pot first so the hole does not close up and excess (rain)water can drain.
可以在盆底先放陶粒,然後才用科學泥,有幫助疏水以免出水位塞住。

4. Fill the pot with some soil and press the dirt down well. Put the plant in the pot and again press down the dirt well. Make sure that the soil does not get higher than 2 to 3 cm under the rim of the pot so when watering the plant the soil does not spill over the rim of the pot.
用科學泥放盆底,然後把植物放入盆,再加入科學泥填滿及壓下泥土。泥在距離盆子的邊2-3cm即可,不用滿瀉。


Fertilisation 施肥
------------------
Plants that richly bloom need extra fertiliser. If you have used fresh potting soil your plants have nutrients for a month from the potting soil. After that you will have to provide some extra ’vitamins’, for instance in the shape of coated fertiliser granules that you can add to the soil. The nutrients in these granules are released gradually. A little more work is giving liquid plant food, which is added to the water. In that case pay close attention to the dosage used.

要植物生長得旺盛,就要施肥。新泥土可以有足夠的養份維持一個月左右,時間一耐就要額外養份。 肥料有顆粒狀或水溶液,顆粒的分解慢可以安心使用,不會令泥土過份肥沃。水溶液的肥料就要注意份量。

Watering 澆水
----------
Giving plants water is an art. Too little water isn’t good for the plants, but too much definitely is not either. The most frequent mistake is to keep the soil wet constantly. This starts rotting the roots or it starts causing mildew. So make sure of good drainage and use water trays. Also never let the soil dry out completely. Put water on the soil or via the water tray as much as possible. Regularly add liquid fertiliser to the water for watering the plants.

澆水都有一定學問。太少水當然不行,太多水亦都對植物不好。最常見的誤解是要泥土經常濕透,不能有效疏水的話,根部會被漫會發霉及敗壞。泥土亦不可以完全乾透,要在泥乾之前澆水,植物的水份吸收速度在冬天會減少,不用經常澆水。可以在泥土表面淋水或在底盤上加上使根部吸收。淋花的水可以先稀釋水溶液的肥料有助吸收。

Remember that plants in earthenware pots need water more often than plants in synthetic pots. After all, earthenware absorbs water. Most plants do like it to be sprayed.

陶盆比膠花盆要吸多一點的水。可以的話,使用噴霧壺可以使植物漂亮。

Wedding flowers Style 花球的選擇

Fresh flowers are not manufactured. Their may be available at certain time and disappear from market within noticing.
Let's introduce the wedding flowers bouquet style.
鮮花不是預製的絲花,不是你想要怎樣,就說就起貨。要找合乎你要求的花球,首先要知花球的類別啊!

1.) The round: It is the most classical and traditional bride’s bouquet… and as it implies, it is round! It typically is small in size and features only one type of flower.
圓形。新娘子要球一般最穩打穩札的花球,非圓形莫屬。一般用兩三種花材,緊密的組合式公整的模式。


2.) The Nosegay: This bouquet is round in shape. But, compared to the round, the nosegay has less flowers and more greenery.
小型花球。要球小一點的花材,可以多一點其它的綠葉為托。 有時候新娘子要比較小型的花球不要太多花。



3.) The Cascade: May also be referred to as a teardrop bouquet or a waterfall bridal bouquet. Cascade wedding bouquets are rounded at the top and fall to a point.
拖尾或水滴型。古典的造形和優雅的長拖尾的婚紗,浪漫和複古的主題最適合不過。要現代一點,可以做單一花材如蝴蝶蘭。

4.) The Arm: This bouquet rests in the crook of your arm and can be referred to as the presentation bouquet or pageant bouquet. Flowers for this bouquet often have long stems and are left “as is” with a ribbon tied around them.
權杖型。要曲起手的花的權杖,有古典的浪漫。亦有時做了頒獎的花束。


source: The Kissing Tree

5.) The Freeform: This one can also be called a contemporary bouquet. It does not have a specific or defined shape, has foliage coming out of the bouquet and usually utilizes tropical flowers.
由自型,田園式。是比較西方式的花束,十分隨意的將花材組合,不會刻意做成圓型,用的都是比較田園的花材,少花多草啊! 香港比較少用,由於香港的婚禮比較城市,少有綠草地或花園婚禮,所以新娘覺得太大膽的款式而少有嘗試。



Source: The knot


6.) The Composite: This one is quite interesting and must take some serious time…A composite bouquet is made of petals wired or glued together to form a single large bloom with a ribbon tied to it.
組合式。用鐵線的方法,組合成為手握的花球,非常獨特。在沒有花泥發明以前,鐵線的方法是為做花球的手藝。
因為無水份供給已剪下的花朵,所以壽命有限。

地球日 Earth day - 學種植物,支持『減碳』

地球日 Earth day 今年在 四月二十二日 (Apr 22)。 大家一齊學種植物『減碳』!


溫室氣溫令地球溫度上升,植物是吸收空氣的二氧化碳。為環保出一分力,學種植物十分簡單。以下有些屬於辦公室的小型植物,花小小時間,為地球出一分力。

Small office plants



綠色的盆栽,煩擾的就是怕種植不易,這些屬於多肉植物,不需要大量日照(間接的日照即可),和只要少許水份,就可以生長!

這些「懶人」的多肉植物,不但沒刺,放在辦公室還能防小人(啊喲,效果因人而異啊!),而且,不用煩惱它會枯死;是非常好照顧的懶人植物!

還有我們的荷蘭花盆,輕巧別致,放在工作間,趕走苦悶,醒目曬!

1。心型葉 (hoya kerrii)
喜好半日照環境,全日照曝曬葉片會黃化。不宜常處於潮濕狀態,應觀察介質略乾才澆水。它也可以養在室內如辦公室的環境.

2。翡翠木。(jade plant)
翡翠木因葉肉肥厚翠綠如玉而得名。在光線適當環境下生長的發財樹,往往葉片厚實,濃綠而富光澤,節間緊促、植株堅挺。栽培時不需常澆水,光線較弱時,寧可讓盆土偏乾而不可過溼。若將室外栽培的發財樹移入室內易因光線不足而落葉,應採漸進移入方式,來適應較暗的光線。

3。石蓮花是多肉植物,葉片厚實耐乾燥,但日照不足時易引起枯黃落葉,若是過度潮濕則容易引起根部敗壞.


打理方法
1.不用太常澆水,視環境濕度而定,約2周澆一次水即可。
2.最好多曬太陽,使植物葉片顏色更鮮明。
3.最好先撥開葉片,再把水澆入土中,不要直接澆在葉片上。

家樂花 ﹣ 都是多肉植物的一種

1。不要多水啊,泥要乾。
2。花期一個月左右,多種顏色的花可以選擇啊!
