    0 comments / Posted on by Maeva Candles & Fragrances

    Flowers have a way of brightening up your day – whether someone gives you a single rose or a bouquet full of the most stunning flowers, flowers do bring a smile to your face. However, the sad thing about real flowers is that they die, you can’t keep them with your forever; but when you come to Maeva Store, you can keep those smiles and those flowers intact for the longest time. Welcome to the world of floral gorgeousness – at the Maeva Store, you will find so many things that will brighten up your life and at times, even your look!

     

     


    For instance, if you look at the floral jewelry and hair accessories, you will want to pick them all up. There are floral sets, which are completed with necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings, and even a mang tika and are a wonderful choice for a bride to be. If you have a friend who is getting married, you could choose from a complete pink set or a combination of pink and orange to gift to her. And do remember to pick out one or more floral hair combs or pins for yourself, so that you can shine too.

     

     

    When you have just purchased your new home or have moved into a new apartment, you will want to do everything to make them your own. The Maeva Store is first and foremost a lifestyle store that brings to you elegant statement pieces that will help add to the charm of your home décor. There is plenty to choose from, no matter what your taste or requirements. You can start with your entrance, and add a pretty floral toran, which will welcome everyone into your new abode. While we do offer the traditional marigold colored toran, we would suggest that you check out the entire range, because there is quite the chance that you might like the look of the pink ones too. And if you are not in the mood for torans, just pick out a lovely door hanging instead, in a color that catches your fancy.

     

     

     

    Once your guests are in, let them be surprised and astonished by the incredibly lifelike rangoli mats, which can be used in so many ways – leave them on the floor, hang them on the wall or place them inside a thali; the choice is all yours. There is also a stunning range of wall hangings to choose from – a cute white house full of flowers tucked behind a picket fence or simply pink roses spelling out the world Love! You will definitely want to check out the collection of wreaths. Whether you want an elaborate wreath to put on your front door or want something dainty to put around your candle, there will be plenty to choose from.

     

     

    Think flowers and you will automatically think of a bouquet with several different colors and fragrances, but the Maeva Store brings to you bouquets that will last you a lifetime. There are ornate and jewel-toned bouquets to choose from or if you want to have that feeling of eternal spring in your home, then too, we have them for you.

  • Why Do We Give Wedding Gifts?

    8 comments / Posted on by Maeva Candles

    Giving wedding gifts has always been an important event which is looked forward to by the newly married couple.  This is a chance for family and friends to show their love, happiness and support towards the newlyweds.There are some fascinating stories behind the origin of this practice.

    Marrying for love and romance hasn’t been around nearly as long as the 700 year old tradition of bride gifts. Before marrying for love and romance came into the picture, the primary reason why a couple married was economic.  Centuries ago society existed without government or social welfare programs so it was upon the groom and his future in-laws to create economic security for the bride.  And if unfortunately she became widowed, the bride could draw on these wedding gifts as financial assets and be financially secure. 

    Fast forward a couple thousand years to the age of Renaissance where a bride would be bid goodbye with ornate marriage chests,  traditionally made of wood and decorated as richly according to their means to show it off as a status symbol when the bride arrived at her new home. Across the Middle East, where houses were traditionally sparsely furnished, such a chest would be placed in the woman’s area, where it could quietly continue to announce its status.These chests held all the bride's future wife goods, which she would need to embark on married life.

    This marriage chest turned into something more symbolic and it was common for American brides to be gifted a leather key basket. It would contain keys to chests, cupboard and in her new house reflecting her new status as 'mistress' of the house. 

    In Indian customs, wedding gifts developed from the idea of 'Shagun' which is a kind of wedding gift given to the bride and groom as part traditional rituals. And this is generally in the form of cash where the amount ends in the number 1 as '0' signifies the end while '1' signifies the beginning.

    With the changing social customs and the decrease in financial motivations to marriages, today's wedding presents vary from kitchenware, cash, gift cards, household items to impersonal photo frames, flowers and more. This wedding season why not gift the newlyweds personal and memorable gifts they'll actually use? Choose from Maeva's wedding collection of candles aptly called 'Mr & Mrs' which are designed in soft shades of silver and turquoise, scented with sweet 'White Tuberose' and made gifting deeply emotional and beautiful again!
