This billboard provides a hint to the people of Bangladesh of what Speaking Roses is all about, and it was created by Speaking Roses licensee Jalal Z. Rahman.
What a great way to start the buzz about The New Way of Expression!
The state of Pennsylvania, where our nation’s independence was born, is now the site of another history-making event!
These two sisters, Angela and Lorena Sanita-Solo recently finished their Speaking Roses training program, and are headed home to show their community what a message on a rose can do for the gift-givers, corporate executives, and romance-lovers of Pennsylvania.
The Entrepreneurial Declaration of Independence they have made will no doubt yield great returns as they implement the strategies and ideas they learned in training to get their new business up and running.
Samaiyah King, our new Georgia licensee, showed up with bouquets of orange embossed Speaking Roses to the art extravaganza and book signing of “My Orange Duffel Bag,” by author Sam Bracken.
Featuring different themes from the book on her roses, Samaiyah was able to attract the attention of several future customers and even got a spot on the news programs of two different local TV stations in her area.
Not only did she get the chance to show off her product to lots of passersby, she also bagged several orders from local TV stations’ viewers!
June is upon us, and that means it is wedding season. In the United States, June is the most popular month for weddings (in case you are curious, the least popular is January). There are a number of reasons why June is so frequently chosen for weddings, ranging from weather to custom to some surprising practicalities.
The weather in June is certainly one of its’ most appealing aspects. It is a time of year when it is reliably warm in the North, but not blazingly hot yet in the South. However, the heritage of June weddings is much older than this country, dating back at least to the Romans. The month of June was named for Juno, the Roman goddess of marriage, hearth, and home. It was only natural that a couple would want to start their life together under her protection.
A funny and practical reason for the popularity of June weddings was that back when bathing was infrequent, people took their annual bath in May (yes, I did say annual!). You may wonder why May did not become the leading month for weddings, what with everyone being at their freshest then. May has long been considered to be an unlucky month for marriages, in part because it was the month when the Romans held the Feast of the Dead as well as the Festival of the Goddess of Chastity. Apparently, very few people felt that death or chastity were auspicious omens for their marriages. In fact, there is even an old saying, “Marry in May, rue the day!”
With all the upcoming June weddings, don’t miss the opportunity to create beautiful Speaking Roses bouquets for the lucky brides and grooms!
