World Teacher’s Day is today! And before we say anything else, let us take a moment to say: Thank you! Thank you to all of the teachers that take the time to mold young minds into extraordinary dreamers. Thank you to the teachers of music, of history, of literature, and language. The art teachers covered in clay and paint, and the unsung heroes who tutor our children after school. Thank you to the mad scientists who teach as a day job, and the math professors that make mistakes just to see if a student will correct them.
Thank you, all of you, for making the world a better, brighter, and more interesting place!

So how do you thank your teacher? What words or gesture could possibly be enough for the people helping you unlock your future? Well, in this it is really the thought that counts.
What’s the Best Way to Recycle Leftover Wine Bottles?
Don’t actually recycle them – turn your favorite Merlot or Roscato container into a decorative glass bottle! You can easily put them to good use by recycling (or should we say upcycling?) and turning them into a beautiful vase, upscale food storage or other nifty knick knack for your home or a gift for a friend. From simple vases wrapped in rustic twine, to aromatic diffusers covered in your favorite trinkets, it’s easy to turn your trash into treasure with these DIY wine bottle crafts.
Tumblr has a lot going for it. Funny memes, the weirdest gifs, and blogs for just about every interest you can think of. Like the rest of the world, those of us at RF like a break from our daily tasks at the computer to stare at something cute (we see you liking those cat pictures) or something beautiful. So in case you’re like us and need to take a step away from e-mails here’s a look ten of our favorite beautiful flowers from Tumblr!
This year, Rosh Hashanah starts on the evening of September 20th, and continues until the evening of Friday, September 22nd. Jewish families will be gathering for reflective activities; they’ll exchange gifts, and decorate their homes. Chief among those decorations will be white flowers for Rosh Hashanah. These flowers, on this holiday, encourage families to reflect on the things they did well, things they can improve, and to ask forgiveness for a fresh start in the year ahead.
While Rosh Hashanah is quieter than the New Year’s celebrations most think of on January 1st, it is not less important. For Jews, it’s a time for deep reflection and remembering to celebrate with them, even in some small way, is a testament to how much you respect and appreciate them.
A new school year is here, and that means a fresh set of goals and a renewal of energy geared toward making the upcoming year the best one yet. For some of you, this could mean anything from rethinking your workspace to rebranding your business. While the second one requires a little more time and effort, sprucing up your study space is the simplest way to boost productivity that will result in achieving higher goals either at work or studies.

There’s something about hot days that makes you crave refreshing herbal teas with edible flowers. Flowers and herbs are at their most delectable in summer, with warm sunlight pulling beneficial essential oils to their surface. Just like a bee or butterfly sipping nectar from a flower, you can enjoy their sweetness when you drink herbal teas. Made with a wide variety of plants they are not only caffeine free, but also have unique flavors and are packed with health benefits. Many herbs are commonly used in teas, but here are the most popular herbal teas made with edible flowers.
Brides around the world have chosen white flowers for their bridal bouquets since time immemorial. And we can’t blame them.

A white bouquet matches any dress and looks great in weddings that are contemporary or Victorian, formal or casual. The best part about saying “I do” with white flowers at your wedding? You’ll never look back on your photos and regret the decision. White blossoms don’t go out of style: it’s a classic, period.
With Father’s Day celebrated this year on June, 18, comes the big question. What Father’s Day gift for dad should you choose to demonstrate your sincere love and utmost care? There are plenty of obvious choices like watches, wallets, socks, wine & champagne, gift baskets, or chocolates. But there’s one gift that is often underappreciated and overlooked, yet enjoyed by men (who may not always admit it) as much as by women. We’re talking flowers here.
With Children’s Day around the corner on June 1st, it’s hard to disagree that childhood is the most joyful period in everyone’s life. Everything was just one big adventure full of exciting experiences and lack of grown up responsibilities. But what secret does childhood possess that we lose when we grow up? Is it the ability to find magic in the simplest things? Boundless imagination and reckless curiosity? Or maybe a kind of wisdom and believing, that we, as adults, do not have?
