Blossom and Bloom

with Lilies, Thryptomene and Alstroemeria

Everybody knows that getting a big ol’ bunch of flowers brings all the warm fuzzies. Flowers spark joy, it’s simple. But did you know that the act of arranging them is so emotionally beneficial it has been likened to therapy?

Amongst all the chaos of modern life, taking some time out to stop, smell and arrange the flowers offers welcome moments of mindfulness. There is beauty and harmony in its art.

There is no ‘right’ way to place your blooms, either. Shake off the burden of perfectionism and embrace the notion that your arrangement is as individual as you are! By focusing only on the flowers in front of you, a meditative process begins.

Enjoy the magic in checking out, even for just a few minutes, and immerse yourself in peace, stillness and creativity.
