Video update! Due to a COVID case at Tash’s kid’s school she was unable to film ahead of time but will instead share her unboxing live on social media later today.

Meanwhile, here’s a quick hands on arrangement style that will work well with the stems in your box!

Ready to Van Gogh Go! Iris Arrangement

With Waxflower, Virbunum and Carnations

Feeling a bit flat? After the relentless year you’ve had It’s no wonder it catches up with you, leaving you feeling, at times, like you’d rather spend the day under the sheets. Maybe with a family sized pizza.

One of the best ways to reset between the multitude of stressors we have to deal with, day in, day out, is to take a creativity break.

This week get painterly with your blooms inspired by Van Gogh’s The Starry Night. Your deeply blue and golden irises bloom against a backdrop of contrasting greenery, with highlights from fresh faced carnations and a constellation of tiny waxflower blossoms.

It’s a painterly project that will inject a moment of peace into your week, allowing you to recover, feel refreshed and get back up and Gogh go again!



Here’s what you’ll need.

  • 4-5 iris

  • 4 carnations

  • 3 viburnum

  • waxflower
  • clean vase and fresh water

  • sharp scissors or flower shears
