The Year of the Dragon

Today is the first day of the Chinese New Year – the single most important holiday in China.  It’s a celebration that lasts for 15 days, culminating with the Lantern Festival. Each year is associated with one of twelve animals in the Chinese zodiac and for 2012, it’s the Year of the Dragon – a year that will be  marked by excitement, unpredictability, exhilaration and intensity.

The Chinese New Year is full of dragon dances, fireworks, feasts, gift-giving, and lantern festivals. Red is the traditional color of the holiday – a color that in Chinese culture symbolizes luck and prosperity.  Dragons, fireworks, gift-giving and RED?  Sounds like the perfect theme for a fun and sexy wedding or party.  What do you think of these Asian inspired elements?
