With the clocks ready to roll back next week we’re looking forward to the extra hour it brings to our indoor morning routines and the colorful transitions of nature outside.
One of our favorite things about fall is the momentary nature it holds – almost the pause between the earth breathing in all the warm long summer days and releasing everything out as cool winter mornings. It’s fleeting characteristic is something we should take a moment to notice, whether it’s the crunchiness under our feet, the deep colors hanging in the trees above our heads or the dampness in the air – it’s all about gathering friends to celebrate the bountyness the season has to offer in just a short space of time.
We have a variety of classes, workshops and events throughout fall and winter to keep you surrounded by nature from the coziness of home.

Cater to compliment your theme or what your guests will enjoy!
It’s bound to be a conversation starter and the twist is that at the end of the evening you can give the moss wrapped plant bundles away as gifts!
The last few weeks have seen our studio brimming with winter greens and flowing with gorgeous smells as we’ve been in full wreath making mode.
We had the opportunity to work with the fantastic people at Houzz to bring you an online wreath tutorial – packed with tips and tricks on how you can easily add a touch of something special this holiday! It’s such a fun way to get into the holiday spirit, so why not grab some friends and host a wreath making night of your own.
