Hey gorgeous thang,

The chill in the air has got us dreaming of epic castles, stone turrets, and if we’re honest, hanging out in the Gryffindor common room with a roaring fire and cup of tea. Chewing on cauldron cakes and ducking the occasional Dr Filibuster’s no heat fireworks. (OK, so who’s just binged on all the Harry Potter movies?!)

Well, to keep with the theme, this week’s flowery collection is a veritable box of Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans. So we dare you to light some candles, channel your inner witch and splash flowery magic all over your home.

In the box this week


Baby pink and lemon yellow stock

Funny name. Seriously gorgeous flower. It’s a ruffly multi-blossomed stem that’s an arrangement all on it’s own and has us obsessed. We love it bundled up with other blossoms in the same colour department or just on its own in a simple glass vase. Indulge your inner romantic and fill your world with this fluffy beauty pronto.

Magenta Pixie Carnations

These cute mini versions of sim carnations make the perfect supporting act for bigger blooms, and this week’s are a fun, sexy magenta. Use them clustered or throw them in at longer lengths in a random fashion for a more “wild” style arrangement.

This week’s bright purple gomphrena is as cute as a button! A bachelor’s button in fact – which also happens to be their other common name.

Keep the stems free of leaves, and style up all on their own, or sparingly with other flowers for a just-picked-from-the-garden style arrangement.

Wattle you do with this week’s foliage (boom tish)?

We love wattle for it’s delicate fronds and silvery leaves! It’s the perfect foliage for adding a wild flowery vibe to your arrangements – just keep the lower steams leaf free.
