It’s a special edition of “Backyard Blooms” as we film our tutorials in lockdown this week!

Silver Serenity – Arum Lily Arrangement

with Umbrella Fern, Gum and Carnations

We could all do with a bit of extra serenity in our lives at the moment. Sometimes, in the overwhelm, we can lose ourselves, lose our center, lose our zen. And while we can’t always change the external pressures and responsibilities that come with modern life (and lockdown), we can always do our best to make our home the sanctuary we deserve. Ok, maybe the entire house is a bit of a stretch (everyone at home ALWAYS does not a sanctuary make) but setting aside one room, or even one corner, for some allocated zen vibes always goes down well.

This week you’ve gone and made that extra easy for yourself with our Silver Serenity box! Packed full of botanical goodness with sleek Arum Lilies, soft Carnations, rustic Spinning Gum and magical Umbrella Fern. Silvery greys, creams and layers of green – tranquility in colour. All you need to do is set aside a few minutes to breathe, snip, water and display. Instant. Calm.
