In honor of this tomorrow’s Komen South Florida Race for the Cure® and in support for survivors and those fighting breast cancer in our community, The Breakers will light its Florentine Fountain pink tonight and Saturday.

The Breakers Palm Beach Goes Pink{Above: A tradition of support, The Breakers PINK in January 2012}

 The Breakers is proud to participate in this year’s Race for the Cure, a tradition we’ve honored for the past 12 years!

Face the hard facts: Rates of breast cancer incidence

* 124.3 new cases per 100,000 women *
* 1.3 per 100,000 men *
* An estimated 232,670 new cases of invasive breast cancer in 2014 *
Find more facts from Susan G. Komen here

Through events like Race for the Cure, the South Florida Susan G. Komen affiliate has invested more than $11.6 million in community breast health programs in Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie counties.

If you can’t participate in Saturday’s race, you can still make an impact and donate to Komen for the Cure South Florida. Help prevent the preventable, treat the treatable, and put an end to breast cancer forever.

Best of luck to all racers!

    This is very nice. My mother was a breast cancer survivor and I am currently in remission of bladder cancer. I truly hope a cure is found to end this horrible disease. I am especially concerned that breast cancer seems like such a direct threat to so many. For example, my wife and 11 year old daughter have to live with this lingering fear. Praying for a cure!!!!!

Although we don’t get to see snow, our Florida winters can get a little chilly – okay, that chill might be about 50 degrees to us Palm Beachers – but why turn down a delicious drink?

Warm your tummy

Here’s a yummy drink to warm your inners while you sip with a smile and enjoy the beautiful ocean breeze. Can a winter get any better?

Macchiato Chino
Frothy milk, espresso, whip cream and nutmeg sprinkles

Cranberry Tea
Hot tea, honey, cranberry juice and cinnamon stick

Mocha Latte
Hot coffee, hot chocolate, whip cream and chocolate sprinkles

Spice it up: Consider adding a little rum, Kahlua liqueur or Baileys Irish Cream and turn it into a cocktail!

Share your creation: If you make The Breakers’ hot teas at home – or use any of
our Something To Sip On recipes – take a photo and upload it to our Facebook page!

With every New Year – and new wedding season! – our team is excited to see new fabulous trends evolving for wedding décor, food and fashion. Here’s a peek at what we expect for 2015…

All About lighting

We see lighting playing a significant role in the design of every incredible wedding and event in 2015 as it truly brings the entire celebration to a new level. Lighting helps set the tone for the evening – it illuminates the venue, makes the bride and groom shine and your décor sparkle.

 Fun Freshness

Another trend we’re happy to see expand this year is more of an organic approach to both décor and food. For décor, we are excited to see more requests for a natural, garden feeling with variations of greens and freshness. We expect more simplistic, natural bouquets and brides wearing flowers in their hair. For dinner, we are featuring more menu items that were grown at local pesticide-free farms or ingredients grown in our own Organic Herb and Vegetable Garden, as well as requests for more vegan and vegetarian menu selections.

Fab Fashion

For the bride, we expect the new trend of non-traditional wedding dresses to explode. Colored dresses in a unique hue (we love Vera Wang’s pink and red and Oscar de La Renta’s blue gowns), fun shapes and personalized pieces like a bedazzled headpiece or jeweled back.
