Bon Voyage – Staycation inspired arrangement
with Iris and Anthurium
Mid year brings with it the perfect storm of decidedly subpar weather, shorter, darker days and holidays now long gone. A little touch of the seasonal blues is the reason many of us may be feeling less than enthused, and combined with the fact that 2020 has been a particularly rough ride – no one could blame you for feeling fatigued, uninspired and a tad sluggish.
We could all do with a lil break right now, but with airport and border closures still in place, and some states in their second stint of lockdown, it’s not looking likely any time soon. So, enter this week’s box!
It’s fun, tropical, colourful, lively… It’s a vacay in a vase! Cut yourself some slack and holiday at home this weekend – because a staycation is better than nocation, right? Crank up the heating, lay a beach towel out on the couch and stick a teeny tiny umbrella in a rather stiff drink. Ah, this is the life… (for now)
Here’s what you’ll need.
a selection of chrysanthemums, gladioli and iris
1 strelizia or gymea leaf
2 anthurium stems
2 brightly coloured vases
sharp scissors or flower shears
