The earthy, organic look is hot now, according to Roshy Naini, creative director of the floral-design studio In Bloom New York (212-662-8852; inbloomnewyork.com). Let go of the clean lines and spotless surfaces in favor of greens and browns, unstructured plantings, and herbs such as jasmine, lavender, rosemary and mint.
Instead of giving attendees centerpieces after the event, or worse, tossing them out, give them to charity. Floral-design studio In Bloom New York (212-662-8852; inbloomnewyork.com) donates bouquets to senior centers and plants to the New York Restoration Project (nyrp.org), which plants them around the city.
Green the Greenery
Most flowers sold in the United States are flown in from Central America, where workers often are not treated well and the flowers are sprayed heavily with pesticides. Ask your vendors to buy from local flower farms and those that are Fair Trade Certified or Veriflora Certified. Thanks to Josef Reiter of Botanica Floral Design in Portland, Ore. (503-358-4687; botanicafloralpdx.com), for the idea.
Hold in One
One of the few problems with e-readers like the Kindle and the Nook is that they can be difficult to hold in one hand.

The E-Book Cradle retails for $25 to $30, or $12.50 each when buying by the case (minimum order, $200). (914) 699-6230; zelco.com
