Wish your guests good luck and prosperity with a lucky bamboo favor. Nury Benz, owner of Water & Earth boutique (9821 Chester Road), explains that in Chinese feng shui, bamboo is believed to fetch positive energy. To bring this element to weddings, Benz designs favors and arrangements. She says the traditional Chinese wedding favor is an arrangement of three shoots representing health, happiness and prosperity. Benz can also create designs using single stems in a variety of colors and containers. "People are going to look at it and remember your wedding and associate it with money, wealth and luck," Benz says. "What better gift is there to give them than something that will bring those positive thoughts?" Prices start at $3.50. For more information, call 768-8663 or visit waterandearth.biz.
