You know what they say, ‘Life’s a garden, dig it’. When we were thinking about our new range of flowering fancies ‘In Fuller Bloom’, inspiration struck, and we thought it would be best to reach out to a few friends who know their way around a flower or two.
Introducing, (drumroll please) The Gardenettes! If you’ve never met before, Chloe Thomson and Melissa King take gardening, cooking and DIY to wonderful new levels, with a retro-tinge. Their garden to table show celebrates all things green and displays their passion for beautiful plants, flowers, and homegrown, homemade food. Inspiring those with or without green thumbs to see what they can do in their own backyards while giving us some major aesthetic goals. Whether you’re familiar with their work or this is your first-time meeting, you’re in for a treat. Chloe and Melissa have blessed us today with three videos showing off their skills in flower arranging, so sit back and remember ‘Life is better in the garden’.
PICK A POSIE!
They say a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but they’ve obviously never smelt this beautiful bouquet by Gardenette Melissa.
SAY IT WITH FLOWERS!
Learning a language is hard, but with Gardenette Chloe’s garden guidance you can say whatever you want using these pretty floral fancies, no translator needed.
3, 2, 1... FLOWER OFF!
Our last video from The Gardenettes answers that age-old question, what could be more fun than flower arranging? Well, flower arranging with friends of course (and a little healthy competition to boot).
We don’t know about you but we’re just bursting with flower inspiration, and if these videos weren’t enough to quench your thirst go visit the Gardenettes at their website or on Instagram to fill your feed with blooms and seed (see what we did there?).
What could be more fun than getting to relive your childhood, colourful pencils, paints or big crayons in hand? Colouring is all of that AS WELL AS it being a great tool for meditation and mindfulness!
Whether it’s a good movie, a crafternoon activity, keeping your body moving or simply a breathing exercise, there’s a plethora of things you can do to keep busy and calm while you’re in isolation, quarantine or lockdown. If that’s you, then we’ve compiled a neat little list of boredom crushers, and keep calmers, with a few of the Erstwilder HQ teams recommendations peppered in too!
At Erstwilder, our purpose and guiding principle is to spread a little joy in the world. If you’ve heard that before it’s because we say it often. It’s even written on the wall at HQ. A big part of achieving that mission is through supporting worth causes wherever we can.
