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 wouldn’t be holiday season without the friendly fronds of bay, pine, boxwood and holly to great you at your front door, however the amazing folk over at SF Flower Market have also been fueling our inspiration with their colorful stalls stocked with the less traditional varieties of proteas, leucadendrons, rose cones, and kangaroo paw to name a few – but all of which have been making an appearance in our wreaths this year!
For the last week on our Facebook page we’ve been exploring how to create different looks using the same exact pot.
We chose this bowl for its low broad design, perfect for dinner table centerpieces. It provides a generous surface area for planting, and its versatile concrete facade can be styled to be both modern and rustic in design.
Here’s a recap of what we did plus a few new photos to hopefully inspire you to get creating your own!

Using wispy plants such as grasses bring a touch of softness to designs whilst Echeveria such as ‘Black Prince’ produce fantastic columns of contrast. You can also think about using aromatic herbs like Lavender to add fragrance as the breeze passes.
2) Height – Just like a city skyline, adding plants with varying heights provides fantastic structure and interest to pots. Use plants like this dwarf Euphorbia for their relative towering gradients of color or think…
