Air Plant Terrarium Workshop Highlights

Posted January 15th, 2014 by Caley

We recently held a private workshop attended by the talented and crafty team at Invoke Media, based here in Vancouver.

After some instruction and guidance by Lauren from Botany and Co., attendees were able to choose their own unique container and used their creativity with the various colours of sand, rocks, twigs, moss, cotton and air plants.

The girls came up with beautiful terrariums and we had a lot of fun seeing them express themselves through their creative designs.

If you would like to book a private class, email us at info@gardenpartyflowers.ca for more details and availability.

Bubbly Terrarium – Art Plants

Posted April 11th, 2012 by amy

A follow up to our previous post by our designer Lisa “Something in the air” we are constantly exploring different ways of designing air plants in different containers.

Quoted from Lisa “What makes these plants so special? The Tillandsia species is able to survive without soil, absorbing moisture and nutrients through its leaves. Just give them a good soaking every week and they’re good to go. Rootless wonders indeed.”

I decided to put them in the glass bubble after our kind friend Melissa gifted them to me!!!

We also have the tea light holder like this and it’s cute to put an airplant in it!

Try saying that 5 times fast.

I made some little air plant zen gardens with a beachy theme.  Would look great on a table for a summer soirée.

Something in the Air

Posted November 10th, 2011 by Lisa

We’ve been loving air plants around these parts of late, and have been finding all kinds of unique and wonderful ways to use them. Their muted grey-green leaves, miniscule size and interesting texture make them the perfect specimen to enliven any arrangement.

What makes these plants so special? The Tillandsia species is able to survive without soil, absorbing moisture and nutrients through its leaves. Just give them a good soaking every week and they’re good to go. Rootless wonders indeed.

We’ve had a quite a few requests for terrariums lately, and we really do like designing these miniature ecosystems. They are a fantastic and long-lasting way to say ‘thank you’, ‘happy birthday’ or simply, ‘thinking of you.’  We hope you like them too.
